Rihanna's Russian Roulette Video - What do you guys think?
"Rihanna earns her R rating in the deadly video for "Russian Roulette". The bloodthirsty clip for the first single off her fourth album has the makings of a movie, complete with drama, suspense, and murder. Actor Jesse Williams ("Grey's Anatomy") plays the pop star's love interest. Rihanna deploys her lethal weapon, director Anthony Mandler, once more. "
I know I'm not the only one who thinks that dude looks just like Chris Brown at a glance...I know it's Jesse Williams from Gray's Anatomy, but come ON.
This video is haunting, and obviously from her heart. Some people are saying it's "depressing and sad". You bet it is, but it's also powerful. If Rihanna had released an upbeat dance track as her first single off her new cd, everyone would've wondered "why isn't she addressing The Issue?". I think what she has done here is totally spot ON.
I need your COMMENTS, people. Whaddy'all think?
