Your Black World Reports
As usual, Rihanna has upset someone with her new video. This seems to be the new business model for both she and ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, whose record went to number one after some of his public outbursts.
The latest product to make the list of deliberately controversial Rihanna songs is “We Found Love,” which many believe to be a re-enactment of the relationship she had with Brown years ago. The man in the video looks just like Chris and many of the scenes played out are similar to those they shared, like the one of the two kissing in a McDonald’s, which made national headlines.
The video details lots of sex, drugs and abuse, which has some outraged.
"Rihanna's new video is a disgrace. It sends the message that she is an object to be possessed by men, which is disturbingly what we see in real violence cases." said Eileen Kelly of the Rape Crisis Center in the U.K.
But as usual, the controversy is going to make Rihanna a few million dollars and she will come out with another song just like it in about six months. It worked for Madonna for years, so why not Rihanna?
