We still hate the message of the song, but we guess if it helped them both face their pasts, it's alright.
Rihanna's duet with Eminem, Love the Way You Lie, is sitting comfortably on the charts and is being played across the nation on every station imaginable. Still, we wondered why Rihanna would agree to sing on such a violent track after the now infamous incident with Chris Brown.
RiRi explained her reasons in a recent interview, saying:
“It’s something that, you know, we’ve both experienced, you know, on different sides, different ends of the table. He pretty much just broke down the cycle of domestic violence and it’s something that people don’t have a lot of insight on….The lyrics were so deep, so beautiful and intense. It’s something that I understood, something I connected with."
There is something rather powerful about the song.
Still, the dark times are behind you. Can we get back to the poppy-R&B fun shiz we fell in love with???
