Megan Fox, Eminem and Rihanna in “Love The Way You Lie”
Megan Fox sets Eminem and Rihanna ablaze in their new music video “Love The Way You Lie.”
The long wait for Eminem’s brand new video “Love The Way You Lie,” which features Rihanna is finally over. The duet, which is off Eminem’s chart topping “Recovery” album has stirred up quite a controversy with its debut.
In the video, directed by Joseph Kahn, has the amazingly beautiful and equally talented Megan Fox couples with “Lost” star Dominic Monaghan in quite an abusive relationship. Fox and Monaghan are shown abusing each other one minute then partaking in some steamy love making the next minute.
Tension grows stronger as the video progresses and the abusive couple ends up adding shoplifting alcohol to their repertoires. Ultimately the video ends with Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan burning down their house.
Eminem, who has been dominating the Billboard Charts, expressed his thoughts on his brand new video to PEOPLE in this comment: “[Director] Joseph [Kahn] and I worked pretty closely together to make sure we got this right. Trying to make this tough subject work visually is a challenge. It was great to have Rihanna, Megan and Dominic on board for this. They really brought it and made this video super-powerful.”
Of course, someone out there had to say that the video was morally wrong with all of the violence it portrays. Thus sparking the controversy surrounding Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna.
We all know that Slim Shady himself is no newcomer to the disgust and scrutiny the public has towards him. All of his albums push the boundaries of morally unjust topics that leave everyone with an uneasy feeling in their stomach. However, everything he sings about happens on a daily basis. Why should he be judged just because he has the balls to put it down on paper?
I personally think the video for “Love The Way You Lie” is amazing. Eminem and Rihanna are powerhouses in the music industry; add superstar Megan Fox into the mix and you have a masterpiece.
On top of all the negative reviews of the video, speculation says that Megan Fox donated her salary from the video shoot to the Sojourn House, which is a shelter for abused women.
