Eminem and Rihanna's Love The Way You Lie is becoming the controversial video of the season: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uelHwf8o7_U&feature=topvideos Many claim the video glamorizes abusive relationships and makes it okay to stay in such a predicament. I'm not sure how that message is there since there are so many violent scenes and a burning house throughout the video. I personally found the video chilling and sad and honest because there are so many couples who stay in abusive situations. They don't get out and its just a continuous cycle that does not get better. Have you see this video? What do you think? What do you think the message is behind the song and video?
