When we first got word Rihanna would join Cara Delevingne in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets as an alien stripper, we had so many questions. The most important: what does an alien stripper even look like?

Through Entertainment Weekly, we now know — here’s a first look at the Bad Gal in all her risqué glory. Rih’s fearless, no-effs-given persona made her filmmaker Luc Besson’s first wish for the role.

“First, because of her voice and the way she smiles and looks and how she expresses herself. Second, because you know she won’t be intimidated on the set. She plays stadiums with 100,000 people. You know that girl isn’t shy about the camera and the crew and all this. She was very direct with me. She said ‘Luc, I want to learn, I want to work. Just let me do it.’ And I must say that she was a great partner and did everything I asked. And believe me — I asked too much.”

Rihanna’s also set to star in the upcoming season of Bates Motel and is currently filming Ocean’s 8 — but we’ll be able to see her on the big screen in Valerian come July 21.
