Eminem and Rihanna teamed up for the track “Love the Way You Lie,” and they have just released their new music video starring major hotties Megan Fox and “Lost” actor Dominic Monaghan. The two play characters loosely based on Eminem and wife Kim Matherson, and the video seeks to point out the destructiveness of violent relationships. Both Eminem and Rihanna have openly spoken about their experiences with domestic violence and felt a song like this, off Eminem’s new album, needed to be recorded.
“It’s something that, you know, [Eminem and I have] both experienced,
you know, on different sides, different ends of the table,” the pop singer said.
“It just was authentic. It was real. It was believable for us to do a
record like that, but it was also something that needed to be done, and
the way he did it was so clever. He pretty much just broke down the
cycle of domestic violence, and it’s something that a lot of people
don’t have a lot of insight on, so this song is a really, really
powerful song, and it touches a lot of people.”
OK, some pretty heavy stuff there. How does the video stack up? Watch it after the jump.
