It’s a big week for music videos, apparently. Rihanna teased us with five thousand Instagrams from behind the scenes, my “favorite” above. I’m asking a favor of you guys. Watch the video in it’s entirety and tell me that what Miley Cyrus did at the VMAs and her video for Wrecking Ball is more disgusting than this. I defy someone to come at me with concrete evidence that the licking of a sledgehammer is nastier than pole dancing in a jort thong and fancy pasties. Please. I seriously need to go wash my hands and hug a baby after watching this because I feel violated. Check it out at the link after the jump and let me know your thoughts. (YouTube won’t upload the video for censorship issues, as far as I understand.)
If the video is taken down, the redirect is below.
Sorry about the redirect, but that’s the only place I can send you for it at the moment. Maybe it should say something that YouTube has banned the video already? VEVO wants the censored version to go up as of 5 hours ago, but I am still waiting on that. I understand that the song is about strippers. If that is your chosen profession, and it pays the bills, do you booboo. However, maybe let’s refrain from writing songs about it? The Rihanna Navy is compiled of a lot of impressionable young minds, and to show them that dry humping a throne with your ass and boobs all but free is going to make you famous may not be the best idea. Don’t get me wrong, she has a ridiculous body, and I would kill for her ass. But why devalue yourself? I hate to rehash an old situation, but maybe some self-respect would have gone a long way in proving self worth to the asshole who beat the shit out of you? Maybe let’s go for empowering victims and showing that you are worth more than degrading yourself? Just a thought.
