(Originally posted Oct 19, 2011) Rihanna’s highly talked about Music Video for ‘We Found Love’ is finally out! Directed by Riri’s favorite director, Melina Matsoukas, who also directed her previous videos such as the controversial, ‘S&M’, ‘Hard’, ‘Rude Boy’ and ‘Rock Star’.
The same video where the streets went abuzz implying, that Riri had found ‘new love’ in her co-star, Irish Farmer and Model, Dudley O’Shaugnessy…then that he was offended by her attire or the lack thereof on set, and so forth…. The video shows the Irish farmer as her beau and they go through their glad and sad times throughout their relationship which later ends when they seemingly cannot withstand the challenges of their relationship any longer, Rihanna walks away and leaves her ‘beau’ passed out on the ground, unable to move…doesn’t it sound familiar?
The video depicts drug use, violence and sexually suggestive elements, and as we know it seems the norm for her videos to cause some controversy. Well, what did Rihanna have to say? She tweeted, “We’ve never done a video like this before. This is probably one of the deepest videos I’ve ever done. #WeFoundLove…The good feeling of love and the dangers of it. That’s what this video is about. #WeFoundLove #UNLOCKED”
It sure was ‘unlocked’ this was some deep seated emotional baggage waiting to be released….there is no doubt that this was some sort of re-enactment of her ‘episode’ with Chris Brown her former beau…. the hook says, ‘We found a love in a hopeless place…”
Love the BIG move with this one!
