Love The Way You Lie Video

Finally a video for this song I'm still somewhat obsessed with. I now interchange listening to this song, State Of and B.O.B.'s Airplanes. I posted about it back in June, here. I'm still listening to it!

Eminem ft. Rihanna, Love The Way You Lie

They are giving Rihanna shit for this video because of her past issues with ummmm whats-his-face that liked to use her face as a punching bag. Shit I can remember his name. Hang on, I'll go look it up.

Chris Brown!! Thats it. Anyway certain groups are saying this video glorifies domestic violence and spousal abuse.

Ummmm, I dont think so in my opinion. It shows what happens. The fights, the makeups, the fights, more making up, more fights and then unfortunately when things get way out of control....someone gets really hurt or worse, dead.

Rihanna is a good spokesperson I guess. She left her abuser and I dont think she's going back.

Your opinion??

Well I wouldn't know about that fighting and making up stuff, the bride isn't allowed to disagree or fight with me or anything.

I totally agree with you. And Eminem is hot like the candy. Love this song.

I don't listen to this type of music so I can't say. If he beat her and she left him then she's a smart girl. Hopefully he only hit her once for her to leave.

lol Sage, like I'd expect anything less from you.

He is hot Momma!

Your right Nitebyrd, but it probably took more than one hit. Unfortunately. =/ And I'll stop by ur blog tonight. Work has you blocked. =) They always block the good ones!!

Dear peedee,
What I think is this: sometimes art explores. It does not have to give you a Moral Conclusion every time.

I don't think the message in this is a straight Conclusion, I think it is an Exploration. It's allowed.

Very interesting,
Ann T.

My second marriage was just like that. I hadn't heard this before but I really like it. I love Eminem, I think he is a genius even though he wears wife beaters. Seems to me both of them can relate to this song well and it's sad (or maybe not) that these relationships don't work. They are usually too passionate.

my opinion is: I love Eminem and I love Rihana. And I REALLY love this song! The end!!

Sorry you lived thru that Jen. Glad you got out. And your right about the passion and I think this video shows that perspective of the abuse pattern.
