Eminem – Love the Way You Lie

Published September 1, 2010 - 0 Comments

I thought that I’d try something a little different for today.  Today I will be posting some of the music videos that I watch when I’m home.  Remember when MTV and MuchMusic used to actually play music videos?  Yeah, I know.. that seems a long time ago!  Because it was.  Now it’s mainly reality tv shows, and the occasional music video thrown in for good measure. Half the time there is a music video, it’s covered up with popups, or txt message numbers to vote for the latest Justin Bieber release to be played over and over.  It’s sickening.

Thankfully, we have the internet.  Between iTunes, uTorrent, and Vevo, I can watch most of the music videos that I want.

So I’m going to start with a controversial one… Eminem’s new video for Love The Way You Lie has been heavily criticized for glorifying domestic violence.  The decision to use Rihanna for the female vocals was obviously not a coincidence.  Both she and Eminem have had their issues with that subject.  Certainly there are some powerful images in the lyrics and video. It’s not for everyone, that’s for sure.  But I like it.

And yes, that is Megan Fox… and no, that’s not why I like it.  Well… not the only reason…
