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.”
The highly anticipated video for Kanye West’s latest single “Power” has finally been premiered. Kanye surprised everyone with his 90 second video claiming “It’s not a video….it’s a painting!” Indeed it was a painting, a moving painting. Inspired by Michelangelo’s frescos in the Sistine Chapel, the piece combines motion and imagery to depict a faux historical moment—an empire on the brink of collapse from its own excess, decadence, and corruption.
After much rumor and speculation, The 40 year old singer/politician has confirmed that he is indeed running for presidency in his native country of Haiti. Wyclef has been an advocate for his country for a long time now and felt it was time he held the country in the palm of his hands. After numbers showed more than 200,000 people were killed and left homeless after the Haitian earthquake, Wyclef knew he had to get more involved.
“The suffering of the people of Haiti, the youth of Haiti—which is the majority of the population—can’t take another five years of the corruption that’s been going on for the past 200 years. This is why I’m running,” Jean tells PEOPLE magazine. “Automatically, when people first see me they’re going to say, ‘Isn’t that the guy from the Fugees?’” says Jean. “But I’m hoping that next they’ll say, ‘OK. He knows what he’s talking about.’”
