Have you seen Rihanna's new video for "Man Down?" I love it. Some people are raising eyebrows over this video and calling it overly violent. Call me crazy, but the video is about shooting a man. And yes, there is a man shot in the video. If you watch the video in its entirety you will see the video is about rape and frankly, I'm glad somebody is talking about it.
"Rape is, unfortunately, happening all over the world and in our own homes and we continue to cover it up and pretend it doesn't happen," Rihanna said.
It's very Bob Marley "I Shot the Sheriff" esque. I hope Rihanna continues making music from her Caribbean roots and speaking up about important topics. I'm diggin' it.
