New Eminem And Rihanna Video: A Bad Situation Getting Worse
I knew this video would be upsetting. We had lots of discussion earlier this week on Pop Off about duets and the tortured relationship that's featured in the number one song in the country right now, as played out by Eminem and Rihanna.
The video for "Love The Way You Lie" opens with Rihanna standing in front of a house on fire and singing the hook. Eminem does most of his verses in a field. The heart of the video plays out between actors (Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan) who fight and have sex alternately. It's graphic and upsetting, calculatedly disturbing.
