Love The Way You Lie

The king of controversy is back for the new abuse-laden video for Love The Way You Lie. Eminem and Rihanna's hit song has made a splash for its dramatic melody and eerie tunes, but the video takes it to a whole new level. With Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan starring as lovers embroiled in a violent relationship, Eminem and Rihanna's past shines through the music. Said to have "broken the cycle of domestic violence," Eminem's angry stance shows remorse in his actions and regret for his past. Meanwhile, abuse victim Rihanna's face is filled with heartbreak, rage and pain as she relives the horrifying details of her violent relationship with Chris Brown. The video is getting mixed reviews because of its emphasis on domestic violence, but I think it's exactly what the world needs. From what experts always tell us, an abusive relationship isn't easy to get out of. The way that Megan keeps returning to Dominic portrays this and helps us realize how hard the cycle is to break. I, for one, love this video. Do you?
