Rihanna "We Found Love" Video

by - 12:39 PM

Wow, so yesterday I saw the Rihanna "We Found Love" video and was completely taken by it on all aspects. It's a story about how love is like a drug... It's an addiction. It starts with love, then obsession, then violence and then when you finally try to part ways with your lover, you go through withdrawals from the love you once had like a drug addict. At the end of the video Rihanna leaves her love but ends up curled up in a ball herself... It's a tragic tale. Rihanna starts the video with an English accent saying the following


"It's like you're screaming and no one can hear. You almost feel ashamed that someone could be that important that without them, you feel like nothing. No one will ever understand how much it hurts. You feel hopeless, like nothing can save you. Then when it's over, and it's gone, you almost wish you could have all that bad stuff back, so that you could have the good."





Some serious deep thoughts right there. This video reminds me A LOT of an old Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish's film in 2006 "Candy" Another crazy relationship that came to a tragic end.

So the real question is.... When is loving someone too much unhealthy? Or is there even such a thing as "healthy" love? I think this is one of Rihanna's best videos yet. Everyone is commenting about how it's her story with Chris Brown, especially since there is a scene in the video where they fought in a car BUT, It's also her realest video in my opinion. All her prior videos have been hot and sexy but this is a story many people can relate to like.... Herself.



Fashion:
Rihanna wears a whole lot of denim here. I am digging it! I'm a long time denim lover (I wear denim jackets and vest frequently). It's very much my style... as a matter of fact, denim is an essential part of my wardrobe. Urban, stylish and chill. It's an extremely attainable look. I've created a collage for you below for some inspiration.

Finally, Enjoy the video below. The drugs are used as a reference to the danger/trial and tribulations of love... So chill out a bit before you judge too harshly! It's a comparison. 










What do you think of this? Can you relate or do you think it's total crap? Let me know! Also, if you share enough of your thoughts... Perhaps I'll share mine (muahaha).

  1. I'm sooo happy you featured this video. It was real and such a good video in the time where we don't get good videos anymore. I love that you referenced Candy too. It's one of my favorite films because it's not a normal happy love story.
