Watch: Eminem And Rihanna's Video For 'Love The Way You Lie'

Re
A great song and an even better music video with a powerful message about domestic violence. Rihanna, who was abused by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009, decided to collaborate on the song because "it was something that needed to be done."

The Joseph Kahn-directed (He also did Kylie's "All The Lovers") video stars Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan. Fox generously donated her paycheck for the shoot to a women's abuse shelter.

Watch the video AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. Taken to its inevitable extreme, capitalism creates a universe where everything is a product - every thought, all feelings, each and every atom, every triumph and every tragedy, reality, abstractions, anything at all that you can imagine - it's all for sale.

    From there, it's no distance at all from the world where everything has a price tag to the universe where everything _is_ its price tag. We know the price of everything and the value of nothing because viewing the world through a cash register has deprived it of all possible value.

    So here we have another entertainment product glamorizing the worst in human nature for profit - an abused person marketing her abuse. See how sexy it is when people with amazing faces, perfect bodies, and an army of stylists knock the shit out of each other? Isn't it gorgeous to dance on the sidewalk as your house burns down? (The kids are presumably still inside.)

    "…a powerful message about domestic violence." Yes, but that message is "I have productized my suffering, and if you'd like to share in my oh-so-glamorous degradation, you can buy it for the low, low price of..."

    It's 2010 and there's no shame is having sex for money: sex workers, after all, can provide a useful service and give good value. The word "whore" should be reserved for those who sell their souls, and ours along with them.

  2. M&M will have to do two things to ever get me to even glance in his musical direction:

    1. Stop with the adolecent scowl. Enough already. Grow the fuck up.

    2. Speak out, loudly and repeatedly, for some kind of acceptance of Gay and Lesbian and Trans and Bi people in the Rap & Hip Hop community. Be as harsh and BLUNT as you are about other things. And do it again, and again and again. You haven't done nearly enough. You're rich - spend some money for some causes - and make it known.

  3. I'll pass on this, but I'm sure it's big on the Pop charts. Like Bieber

  4. I didn't like the video and the song is okay. I'm over Eminem. I don't have anything against him but his music has grown stale for me. I still like Rihanna though :)

  5. Here's the thing about this song: no one wants to like it. Eminem has said and done things to piss off the entire world. But it's good. It's better than anyone wants it to be. So deal.

  6. I took a different view from Love The Way You Lie, I think it is in the perspective of the woman. Typically when abuse happens the woman feels like they are doing something wrong, like it must be warranted.

  7. I came finding here that there are so many people who hate Eminem but I think that He's at top then as if someone is really criticized then means he's really doing people think of him ;)
