Rihanna - Man Down
Do I like this video? I'm not sure. I'm not that fond of the song but I'm not sure at all about how I feel about the video. You guys already know where I stand in terms of Rihanna's red hair (GIRL!) I think the hair is way too long and the mermaid look is not working for me.
Now I totally get and respect the look Rihanna wanted to create for the video but whether or not it has worked is the question. I'm happy that she opted for a video with a narrative, and round of applause to her for the ability to hold up a powerful scene.
I think what's troubling me here is whether the video's somewhat exploiting what happened to her a few years ago. Saying that I'm fully aware that what happened to her was on a whole different spectrum of abuse, but I just don't know. Feel me in on your reactions to the video because I'm seriously undecided.
Be sure to leave comments and let me know what you think of this song, laters xx
