Musical Moment With Marshall Mathers August 8, 2010 by WendyB I’ve listened to Love the Way You Lie by Eminem and Rihanna 50 times in 12 hours. No exaggeration. Now you can be obsessed by it too. The video features Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan. You might also like The Week in ReviewSuzanne Vega Wears My Lotus NecklaceNo Neil Young, No Beach for Me This Labor Day

Is this the official video? If so I’ll need to watch once I’m back to the world of fast internet connection!!
It’s official and it’s great.

Just remembered I need to see this one, and you are right! It’s really good, acting is awesome too. I don’t like the message in this song and that’s the only thing that’s preventing me from being all over this video lol I love Eminem though!
I’m not sure if I’m madly in love with it or vehemently hate it. I think I will have to listen to the song a few hundred more times 😛
can’t blame you! great song, grrreat clip.
now i’m haunting my neighbours with it too;)
Thanks for posting this. Love it, I’m off to download it now.
This song is amazing. Megan Fox looks beautiful in the video.
Hmmm, what an odd couple…
Now it’s stuck in my head…

Great video, if you like ‘violence against women and the women who love it’.
I can watch an artistic retelling of an abusive relationship without feeling that said abuse is being promoted. I know some people feel certain issues can’t be dealt with except in very specific ways or else it is condoning them but that’s not my interpretation here. I think this conveys entrapment and pain, admittedly in a very gorgeous way, but if the characters were clinically obese and/or ugly in the face, there would be people complaining that the video gave a wrong impression of abuse because it happens to beautiful thin people too. And then we might as well go back to arguing about whether Goethe’s “Young Werther” should be banned for glamorizing suicide. Basically I am fine with artists dealing with sensitive subjects without being censored.
I think that’s a very important thread of argument, Wendy, because to say that the mere featuring of such an ‘issue’ automatically maps towards promoting it is a little too drastic. To sequester it away or hide it underground, adding it to the 41470912490248 and growing ‘taboo’ subjects just makes the picture murkier and subjects growing ‘more sensitive’. Debate and knowledge comes with awareness, not overt censorship.
And that’s why you are my guru…

Soooo I’d seen this video posted about eight billion times around the internet (even by RL friends) but only decided to actually watch it when the recommendation came from you. And it’s pretty badass. And I linked to this post from twitter, just because 🙂

I was going to say exactly what Blog Goggles posted!
Great video, I’ve listened to this on the radio but this is the first time I saw this video, WOW!!! xoxo
Dang, that’ll wake a person up on a Monday!
I am obsessed. I had already listened to the song to many times to count before the video came out. Then the vid came out and I couldnt stop watching it. I even made my friends sit down to watch it. It was just powerful. So thanks for posting it and making me watch it again! 🙂
