Rihanna, Rihanna, Rihanna... she absolutely BROUGHT IT with her new video for "We Found Love"! I know I'm a few days behind on the post, but I can relate to this video so much that I knew my commentary would be long. This video gave me LIFE! Rihanna is doing her thing and paving her own way in the music industry. I love her F it attitude, her realness, her playful spirit, and her beauty! If you ask me, she's a legend in the making!
Anywho, let me hop of the Rihanna stan wagon real quick and focus on the video lol. It was epic! The visual and the storyline that she gave were undeniably real and raw. The depictions of the drugs throughout the video shows how toxic a relationship can be. That high from lust may feel good, but it's definitely not always good for you. Their relationship started off as something that looks sweet, innocent and fun; but soon turns destructive and becomes a downward spiral. As they become more and more addicted to each other (and depictions of drugs increase), the initial high of the relationship wears off. It's like they're trying to get that inital high back, so they can't let go of each other... kind of like an addict continues to use drugs in hopes of getting back that first high.
Throughtout the video, he becomes more and more aggresive, causing their relationship to become tumultuous. But yet, she can't let go. Boy have I been in this situation before! It's like you get in a relationship where everything is going perfectly, then as you get to know that person more and more you start to see them for what they really are and vice versa. No matter how bad things get, sometimes you just can't let go and you deal with the bad in hopes of one day getting the good back. I'm sure everyone has been in this type of relationship before, and it's SO unhealthy. But when you're in that situation you don't see it as such.
This video has quickly become one of my favorites of all time, and not just because I can relate to it well. Now I know ya'll see the resemblance of the video to her and Chris Brown's relationship? The part where they're in the fast food restaurant hugged up reminds me of the pics that came out a few years ago of Rihanna and Breezy kissing in KFC. Not to mention, in the video there was an argument that took place in the car, which we all know happened in real life. From what I could see of Rih & Breezy's relationship, they were young and in love and had so much fun together. Somehow, things went downhill and once tempers flared things happened that could never be taken back. This video seems to represent that for me!
I love how Rihanna isn't afraid to make herself vulnerable enough to put her feelings out for the public. And I love the message that she is sending out that even though you may love someone, they may not be what's best for you in the long run. Love can be so blinding, and when you're going through it at the time, you don't see half the things you would have seen if you weren't blinded by love!
Check out the video below and let us know what you think! Are you feeling it, or do you feel like it's too much for the public?
