The WINs & FAILs of Eminem’s ‘Love The Way You Lie’ Video


Vibe | August 7, 2010 - 7:25 pm

Looks like the days of goofy, cartoonish music videos from Eminem have come to a close. With his latest flick, “Love The Way You Lie,” off the chart-topping Recovery, Marshall takes a serious gaze at how fiery, abusive relationships can swirl out of control. While Rihanna wails on the chorus and Dominic Monaghan and Megan Fox providing major cameos, VIBE weighs the pros and cons of our Juice issue cover star’s new visual work of art.


  1. Gratuitous Rihanna closeups (bonus points for the red crop top)
  2. Two words: Megan Fox
  3.  Flame-on effects



  1. Em & Ri-Ri’s lack of on-screen interaction.
  2. Eminem wearing a wife-beater… for a song about domestic violence.
  3. Mixed message: Who wouldn’t consider an ash-scattered demise if it meant bunking up with Ms. Fox?
