Eminem feat Rihanna – Love the Way You Lie

Love the music tunes and the background. However, is Rihanna degrading herself further cooing “I love the way you lie”? The woman gets herself abused and she loved it? Is she a sadist or what? Being abused by Chris Brown is not enough? Eminem has sung about killing & hurting women before.

The lyrics (not in order):


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 love the way you lie


But when it’s bad
It’s awful
I feel so ashamed
I snap
Who’s that dude
I don’t even know his name
I laid hands on her
I’ll never stoop so low again
I guess I don’t know my own strength

How irresponsible can Eminem get? Not knowing own strength? So test it on her? If you love someone, you wouldn’t use physical (or emotional, etc) abuse. You’ll cherish the person instead.

Then Rihanna told Eminem to continue to hurt her because she loves it! She loves the abuse.

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

Now I know we said things
Did things
That we didn’t mean
And we fall back
Into the same patterns
Same routine
But your temper’s just as bad
As mine is
You’re the same as me
But when it comes to love
You’re just as blinded
Baby please come back
It wasn’t you
Baby it was me
Maybe our relationship
Isn’t as crazy as it seems
Maybe that’s what happens
When a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is
I love you too much
To walk away though
Come inside
Pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don’t you hear sincerity
In my voice when I talk
Told you this is my fault
Look me in the eyeball
Next time I’m pissed
I’ll aim my fist
At the dry wall
Next time
There will be no next time
I apologize
Even though I know it’s lies
I’m tired of the games
I just want her back
I know I’m a liar
If she ever tries to fucking leave again
I’mma tie her to the bed
And set the house on fire

If he can’t have her, he might as well kill her.

Or did some of us get the message wrong? That both singers were trying to say it’s better to walk out of any abusive relationship & treat each other right?

MTV – Eminem’s ‘Love The Way You Lie’ Warns Of The Cycle Of Abuse

  1. i guess this is what you would call “in a complicated” relationship :S

    they really do love each other but when the man starts to become abusive, the girl tries to take it all at first but after a while she is thinking of leaving him.
    He then tries to control his temper and not to hurt her again but he just can’t, not that he doesn’t want to. Though he says he’ll kill her if she leaves, she knows its all a lie. She keeps going back to him coz she loves him that much…just like how ppl know that drugs are bad for them but why do they keep doing it?..
    So maybe Rihanna does know what she is singing about and perhaps relate to the song..

    just like how this guy i like is treating me and no he doesnt beat me up, he just hurts me emotionally so much.
    but despite what he does to me and sometimes i feel like hating him but i keep finding myself going back to him.. :(


    1. If he’s abusing you verbally, it’s also abuse. Did you tell him that when he say [what he say] hurts and can he stop that? Suggest other ways that he can communicate with you?


    2. aaahhh….that’s the thing. He doesn’t see the wrong in it. like i said, he emotionally hurts me, so it’s not mostly words, but mostly actions. And when i do approach him about it, all he says is “what do u want me to do?” or tells me “it’s only wrong because the world/society says its wrong” :S
