The number one song in the country finally has a suitably dark and brooding video. Rihanna plays Eminem‘s therapist in “The Monster” — a role she still manages to sex up. (Who knew business casual could look so raunchy?) There are also flashbacks to highlights from the MC’s blockbuster career.
An unexpected example is a snippet of Em performing with Elton John, which could be interpreted as an apology of sorts for the hate language in “Rap God”. Apart from that, the moody visual is full of clips from previous videos interspersed with footage of the former Slim Shady struggling to escape his straight jacket. Watch up top.
