Rihanna’s new name should be controversy. Ri-ri’s videos always seem to stir up trouble but her latest work, “We Found Love” has the Anti-Rape Association furious. They are disgusted with Rihanna’s display Â of visual arts.According to them Rihanna’s video Â shows men dominatingÂ and having Â possession over women. . ..There’s a scene in the music video where Rihanna’s leading man , Dudley Oâ€™Shaughnessy, spanks her and tattoos â€˜Mineâ€™ on her behind. While many are alleging that the video mirrors her relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown , Ellen Kelly of the Rape Crisis Center is calling Rihannaâ€™s video a â€œdisgraceâ€ and questioning the message Rihanna is trying to send to fans.
This is not Rihanna’s first time getting negative feedback from her visual concepts, her video ‘Man Downâ€™ was criticized because the video showed a sexually assaulted Rihanna shooting the man who abused her. The Rape Crisis center is saying this about the video:
â€œRihannaâ€™s new video is a disgrace. It sends the message that she is an object to be possessed by men, which is disturbingly what we see in real violence cases.â€
The video was directed by Melina Matsoukas who has openly defended her work and Rihanna by saying “domestic violence isnâ€™t the topic at hand, itâ€™s more about being in an unhealthy relationship.”
Do you believe Rihanna sends bad messages through her videos? Were you offended when you watched the video?
