Rihanna has been riding the edgy fashion wave hard lately. Turns out one of her inspirations is the very outrageous Lady Gaga. “She has a very bold, fearless image,” Riri told MTV.

“I have to say, I have so much respect for original artists and artists who aren’t afraid to do what they want to do. “That’s what I respect most, so she’s awesome,” she added during the video shoot for her latest video “Hard”. As usual Riri’s outfits will be styles ahead for the vid which has a military theme. She calls it “military couture.”

“We have tanks, we have troops, we’ve got helicopters, we’ve got explosions. We’ve got lots of cute outfits, lots of bullets. It’s crazy.”
