Rihanna Premieres ‘Man Down’ Official Video + Cosmo Interview

admin May 31 11 0 Comments

Hot 100 princess Rihanna has released another video from her LOUD album. ‘Man Down’ is the fifth single to be released from the singer for this era, and this clip has a dark undertone in contrast to the generally light hearted videos Rihanna has put out for this album. The video includes her shooting a man, as the lyrics state, as well as the events leading up to that shooting.

While similar to her videos for her last studio album, Rated R, this clip is for lack of a better words, boring. A lot could have been done with such a visually based song but it seemed like this clip relied on Rihanna standing around and posing.

Basically, Rihanna’s gotta do better if she wants that reign not to let up y’all. LOL.

Excerpts from Rihanna’s interview with Cosmo Magazine have also surfaced, and they are… interesting. Get inside Rihanna’s head right here!

Check out Rihanna’s thoughts on:

On Twitter
I was so against twitter. I couldn’t understand how people were supposed to care what I was doing at any given moment. Then I started to figure out you can treat it like a giant chat room: I can respond directly to people’s questions. It makes it easier to deal with the flak around you because people have a sense of who you are.

On Dating
It can definitely be intimidating to guys to date someone in the industry. And it’s really hard to find a guy who doesn’t care about that stuff. Right now, its easier to just having my career to focus on.

On what turns her on
I’m turned on to a guy by different things. It could be the way he looks. It could be his intelligence. Its really a spontaneous thing. I’m open to love but guys should have to earn it because the minute they get it, they want something else. Men are like hunters; they like the chase. So you have to keep them guessing.

On letting her guard down
It’s something that I’m working on. Melissa always says to me, ‘You need to let your guard down.’ Because even if a guy texts me or says something slick, I would never entertain it. I think, “that’s bullshit. Its just an act.’ And Melissa’s like, You’re crazy. Let your guard down.” But I will. It’s going to happen.

So now all the homies tryna get with Ms. Fenty know a little more about what she wants LOL. Check out some other pics from the magazine interview and tell me what y’all think about her new video and her interview!
