Rihanna has made a name for herself as one of the most fashionable chameleons music industry, shifting effortlessly between cutting-edge ensembles as well as daring hairstyles. And now the singer has set her sights on a new fashion statement — gold teeth and fangs.

In a new behind-the-scenes clip for her upcoming “You Da One” single, Rihanna is shown backstage at London’s O2 Arena, getting a fitting for a custom grill, complete with fangs.

“I’m getting a grill made for an upcoming video shoot for ‘You Da One’ but I only want the bottom done with fangs and they have to make a mold so they can send it to New Castle, ship it from New Castle, get it made and then send it back to London for the video,” Riri explained while getting the mold done.

For the new video, which was shot last month in London, Rihanna, once again, called upon good friend and longtime collaborator Melina Matsoukas to direct the video. Photos from the video recently hit the Web showing the Bajan beauty sporting a new blonde ‘do, booty shorts and sheer skin-tight white shirts with nipple piercings. And now fans can expect to see Rihanna rocking a fangtastic grill in the video as well.

Though Rihanna’s new fashion statement is a bit of a style shock for the trendy girl, she’s not the first artist to rock a grill. Check out our list of 10 other notable artists with grills below. –nicholas robinson
