when tornado meets a volcano.

This is Eminem's new single, Love The Way You Lie featuring Rihanna. Well it's not that new but I just saw the music video last night.



I fell in love with this song even before I googled the lyrics.
  • Rihanna's red hair is gross but in this video it looks kinda sexy :O maybe because it's longer than when she first debut the hairdo. As to the rest of us, don't even try to imagine sporting this look, it isn't gonna work.
  • Let's face it, Megan Fox is the reason guys love this video.
  • The lyrics is awesome, seriously.
  • I'm not a big fan of Eminem, can recognize a few of his songs but rap isn't really my cup of tea..except a few years ago, when me and Sarah were obsessed with Too Phat! We actually memorized the whole Anak Ayam song. Am actually really proud of my childhood achievements now.
  • Rihanna is the best singer alive. And the fact that she wore that cute black headband over her bright red hair is pure genius.
About the video, many think it's offensive because it's shockingly blunt in focusing about domestic violence, which is ironically linked to both singers.

A bit of the lyrics : 

Sound like broken records playing over but you promised her
Next time you show restraint
You don't get another chance
Life is no Nintendo game
But you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave out the window
Guess that's why they call it window pane
 


And of course, the chorus part that I love so much : 

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that's alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that's alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie


I can't speak for the rest of us but it surely struck where it hurts the most. The truth. Relationships are hard, as much as we want to see it as floating rainbows, it isn't.

Now watch this cover of the song, made by the famous Tyler Ward team.



I'm absolutely LOVING IT! The girl is so good.

 Anyway, I have a packing crisis.


My flight is the day after tomorrow but haven't started packing yet. Honestly I don't know what to bring! Sigh.

Last minute is still my thing, apparently.
