Video: Eminem f/ Rihanna – ‘Love the Way You Lie’

Rihanna and Eminem

Art imitates life in the graphic video for Eminem and Rihanna’s No. 1 collaboration “Love the Way You Lie,” the second single off Recovery. The bad boy rapper and pop star, who’ve both been in tumultuous relationships, tackle domestic violence in the blockbuster clip directed by Joseph Kahn.

The storyline is loosely based on Em’s rocky past with his ex-wife Kim and co-stars “Lost’s” Dominic Monaghan and “Transformers” actress Megan Fox. “The concept of ‘Love the Way You Lie’ was essentially a look at the relationship that Eminem was in with his wife, Kim, so I kind of felt like I was playing Eminem a little bit, and Megan Fox was kind of playing Kim,” Monaghan told MTV News. “We’re supposed to be desperately in love, like Bonnie and Clyde style, like Sid and Nancy, John and Yoko … Eminem and Kim.”

Watch their love affair ignite on-screen below.

    @CIARAMEDLIES I know ur mad that C-Error will never headline a worlwide tour, but don’t take that out on Queen Rihanna! You watched the video and loved it. Now go do something productive like buying “Ride” on iTunes. It’s struggling to even stay in the top 100.

    STAY MAD!

    Mannnn, this shit kinda gave me chills. They all did a great job. And just as I watched this video it reminded me y people used to really anticipate videos. Now, all you have is way over the top shit, butt-naked ass women, money, cars, or some stupid ass dance. Good to see something with a message behind it…

    Could have done without Megan Fox and the other dude; their acting looked forced. I didn’t even notice that was Fox to the very end. Eminem and Rihanna’s acting was far more powerful, my eyes were glued to those two, the rest was just background.

    OMG that was probably one of the most amazing/powerful videos of all time. This is why people looked forward to videos… artists that can deliver (GaGa, Rihanna, Eminem) reminded everyone that music videos can still be amazing. The acting for everyone in this was superb and felt very real and will hit close to home for many who watch it. No doubt that this is Video Music Awards, Grammy, American Music Awards, and World Music Award quality… I am so excited that this met my expectations.

    and @TWITTER@CIARAMEDLIES

    C-error can’t sell out a tour around the world… hell she cant even go gold on her new album… can you say flop? I mean don’t get me wrong I used to love Ciara but she then went down the path and became generic and sounded the same as all the other girls… Rihanna, Beyonce, and GaGa are the only women in the game still that can still make music excited to watch and see concerts for.

    Oh and her tickets aren’t $10… they are $450… so suck on that one for a while before you open your mouth.

    Now ok i love all artist /ciara vs rihanna vs beyonce vs janet vs mariah vs nicki vsetc./they dont give a damn about who yall say is the best;all that matters is that their music is listened to (like it like it,dont dont)
    ps just because ciara name rhymes w/ c-error doesnt mean that her music is bad shes just under rated

    @ Rihannaz #1 Fan & locuz flower:

    You forget that this is an EMINEM video, not everyone who’s an Eminem fan is going to be an fan of Rihanna as well. For the Em fans that like this song but don’t like Rihanna, we have no choice but to tolerate her. But we’re not gonna sugarcoat our true feelings about her either, so sit.

    Just because we’re not delusional like you stans, doesn’t mean that we’re haters, so grow up. Accept that not everyone thinks Rihanna is a goddess.

    Anyway, Eminem owned this song, and the video is great, very moving. Too bad that Hayley Williams already collaborated with B.O.B. on “Airplanes”, cause she would’ve been better for this song, her style is better suited for it and she can actually sing…

    i really love the emotion and thought of this song as well as the video. I really love this song and feel the pain and Eminem chose a create person to share this video with Rihanna. This video has inspired me to write a fiction story similar to the video.

    @CiaraMedlies That’s your comeback? FAIL! You said that already. And the tour is not being canceled. Like you said, go watch “Ride.” It just got over 10 million views after 3 months, while Rihanna’s videos get that in a few weeks. You need to supporting your fave so maybe he can headline a tour one day…

    HOW DO U NOT CONSIDER URSELF A HATER YET U ALWAYS GOT A NEGATIVE COMMENT TO SAY BOUT RIHANNA (REGARDLESS IF ITS A EM POST OR NOT) U NEED TO HAVE A SEAT CUZ HERE ARE THE FACTS SWEETHEART…LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE IS NUMBER ONE, A GOOD AMOUNT OF THAT IS BECAUSE RIHANNA WAS ON THE TRACK, ONLY SHE COULD DO THIS SONG AND NOT HALEY WILLIAMS BECAUSE ONLY RIHANNA COULD RELATE TO THIS SONG,

    IF RIHANNA CANT SING WHY DO CRITICS PRAISE HER FOR HER VOCALS ON THE SONG, AND WHY ISNT AIRPLANES NUMBER ONE SINCE THEY BOTH SOUND SIMILAR…YEA HAVE A SEAT

    ALL THESE HATERS SWEAR THEIR NOT YET ALL THEY BRING IS STRAIGT NEGATIVITY…THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HATIN AND HAVIN A OPINION

    SORRY TRUE BLOOD OR WHATEVER UR NAME IS BUT U LOSE AND RIHANNA WINS SO SUCK ON THAT BITCH

    HOW THE HELL WOULD HALEY WILLIAMS BE FIT TO DO THIS SONG BETTER THAN RIHANNA WHEN ONLY RIHANNA COULD RELATE TO THIS SONG…EM SAID THAT HIMSELF SO THAT PROVES THAT UR JUST A HATER

    LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE IS NUMBER ONE HONEY
    AIRPLANES PEAKED AT NUMBER THREE

    Okay, this is about Eminem. It’s his video and his song off of his album. Rihanna getting every bit of attention from this video is just ridiculous, and shows that the media will bury Eminem for his previous work in the early 2000′s and late 90′s.

  84. youamuseme

    I’m literally dying over the Ciara and Rihanna comments. I really expected more from this video along the lines of Rihanna acting as the girlfriend or like a mentor. I like the song, but I’m not a fan of the video. It was okay. Em did a great job. Love Em. I’m not going to throw shade on Rihanna. She look pretty.
