Love the Way You Lie: Eminem & Rihanna on the Vicious Cycle of Domestic Violence

Love should not hurt. Yet bad romances seem to be as common in this world as the ones true romantic stories as made from.

In his new controversial music video, “Love the Way You Lie,” Eminem depicts a glance into his relationship with his two-time, ex-wife Kim Mathers.

Starring Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan, the video seamlessly intertwines love and violence. The video opens with a couple (Monaghan and Fox) sleeping peacefully together. Next, they are violently fighting, tossing bed sheets around and the viewers see Fox’s character overpowered into early submission. Later, the couple is seen pressed up against a wall, where the man punches his fist into it, before they break into a passionate kiss.

The entire time scenes like this go on throughout the video, Rihanna sings the chorus which includes the phrase, “That’s all right because I like the way it hurts.”

Lady GaGa made a hit single out of bad romances, this is the fourth number one hit single for Em, and seventh for Rihanna — but is this really alright? [Read more…]

Right, so I don’t know about you but 2010 thus far is filled with a few songs, I hate to admit that I just can’t get out of my head…no matter how hard I try. And no, I’m no talking about the fabulous Kylie Minogue either. Actually, I wish it was the girl from Oz…

A Wicked #MusicMonday with a little Kristen Chenoweth :) [w/ animations]

Last week, I feature Idina Menzel as my #MusicMonday, so this week it’s only fitting that I feature the incredibly talented Kristen Chenoweth and continue my Broadway kick 🙂

For those of you who don’t know who she is, Kristin Chenoweth is an American born singer, actress and musical theatre powerhouse. She was the original Galinda (with a ‘Ga’) in Stephen Schwartz’s “Wicked” (alongside the amazing Idina Menzel.) She’s also really well-known for her role as Annabeth on The West Wing as well as for winning an Emmy Award for playing Olive in Pushing Daisies. Her voice is a coloratura soprano — which basically means, yes, for such a little woman (she’s 4 feet 11 inches) she’s an opera singer too! Speaking of which, you might recognize her from singing and acting as Marion in 2003’s “The Music Man.” You might have also seen her in “Bewitched,” “RV,” “Deck the Halls,” “The Pink Panther,”  and “Four Christmases.”

Kristin Chenoweth

One of my favourite bits I ever saw her do, was the intro to the 2005 Tony Awards with Hugh Jackman, she’s adorable!

Happy #MusicMonday 🙂 [Read more…]
