Video: Eminem f/ Rihanna – ‘The Monster’

Eminem and Rihanna

Eminem and Rihanna have done it again. After topping the charts with their 2010 hit “Love the Way You Lie,” the Detroit rapper and pop superstar reunite in the video for “The Monster.”

Em faces his demons with some help from Rihanna, who plays his sexy therapist. She makes him watch images of violence, family, and addiction on the monitor while she takes notes.

As he rides an elevator, he reflects on his tumultuous career and life, recreating scenes from iconic moments in his career including the videos for “My Name Is,” “Lose Yourself,” and “The Way I Am,” as well as his performance with Elton John at the 2001 Grammys.

The elevator finally stops and he gets off to find two armed guards pointing guns at an iron cage. Inside is his former self, who throws torn pieces of paper at him. Em reads the note and walks away while the old Em yells at him.

The song, which is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, is the latest single off Eminem’s platinum album The Marshall Mathers LP 2.

Watch Eminem come face-to-face with Marshall Mathers.

Eminem unlocks the key to immortality in the futuristic video for his single “Rap God.” The hip-hop icon rocks blonde hair and a shiny black suit as he pays homage to ’80s British artificial intelligence Max Headroom. He sits in a white room hooked up to televisions, while images of his rap idols Rakim, Eazy-E, and Run-D.M.C. flash across the monitors.

The glitchy clip was shot at the Russell Industrial Center in Detroit and directed by Rich Lee, who helmed the “Not Afraid” and “Lighters” videos.
