Eminem & Rihanna’s brave new video

Rihanna takes on the topic of domestic violence in her new Eminem video, Love the Way You Lie starring Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan. Fox and Monaghan play a couple trapped in the abusive cycle of drinking and fighting. As we know, Rihanna has experienced this first hand.

The Love the Way You Lie video shows Rihanna outside a house that bursts into flames while Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan are inside. They physically abuse each other, and then they kiss.

In short, Fox and Monaghan exhibit a destructive pattern of fighting then making up. All the while Eminem raps and wears his signature "wifebeater" style.

Thirty-seven-year-old Eminem told People magazine that he and director Joseph Kahn worked very closely together to make sure they got it right.

"Trying to make this tough subject work visually is a challenge. It was great to have Rihanna, Megan and Dominic on board for this. They really brought it and made this video super-powerful," Eminem said of the Love the Way You Lie video.

Megan Fox donated her pay for the video to a shelter for abused women. Good for you, Megan!
