Eminem & Rihanna:

The video everyone’s been waiting for is finally here! Eminem featuring Rihanna “Love the Way You Lie” premiered on MTV late last night, and the message it sends is pretty shocking.

Rihanna and Eminem sing to the camera as video of Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan is interjected, portraying them as a couple who emotionally and physically abuse each other.

Eminem says of his latest project, "[Director] Joseph [Kahn] and I worked pretty closely together to make sure we got this 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."

It’s hard not to think of Rihanna’s personal abuse experience while watching this video. Megan Fox was so moved by the experience that she donated the money she would have received for the video to a Sojourn House, a shelter for abused women.
