In the post Music vs Intelligence we looked at the question: Can music make you dumb? If you believe Lil’ Wayne when he proclaims to be best rapper alive then the answer is maybe. If you enjoy the lyrics and songs by Rihanna, the answer has to be a resounding “YES”. Take her rocky relationship with Chris Brown in context and listen to her latest collaboration with Eminem.
Rihanna – “Love The Way You Lie”:
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
There’s a sucker born every minute
The song is so popular with the crowd and will get their encore. “Love the Way You Lie” part 2 is going to be featured on Rihanna’s November 16 release Loud. The song and lyrics have already been leaked on the internet. Take a look at some further words of wisdom from Rihanna.
Rihanna – Loud “Love the Way You Lie Part 2”
But you ‘ll always be my hero, even though you lost your mind.
So maybe I ‘m a ma.so.chist
I try to run but I don ‘t wanna ever leave.
Rihanna – Loud “S&M” lyrics
I may be bad but I’m perfectly good at it
Sticks and stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me.
I wonder if Alanis Morissette was talking to Rihanna when singing “How about no longer being maso.chis.tic.”
