Rihanna Comes Under Fire Over 'We Found Love' Music Video
Calling the gritty music video a disgrace, Eileen Kelly of the Rape Crisis Centre adds, 'It sends the message that she is an object to be possessed by men.'


"We Found Love" music video, which is filled with explicit materials including drug use and violence, has landed Rihanna in hot water. An anti-rape organization slams the Barbados singer, accusing her of visualizing woman as "an object to be possessed by men."

"Rihanna's new video is a disgrace," Eileen Kelly of the Rape Crisis Centre voices her complaint to the Daily Star. "It sends the message that she is an object to be possessed by men, which is disturbingly what we see in real violence cases."

Riri hasn't responded to the criticism, but the director Melina Matsoukas already slammed any claims suggesting they're glorifying abusive relationship even before the protest arose. "We love, obviously, to do provocative imagery," she told MTV. "I think because, in the end, it's not really at all about domestic violence."

"It's really just about it being toxic, and they're on this drug trip and that definitely plays a part, but I think it's also about being triumphant over those weaknesses, and she leaves him. It's not trying to glorify that type of relationship. The bad parts of it, that's what you don't want. In the end, her leaving, it represents her getting that out of her life."

The "We Found Love" music video featured Dudley O'Shaughnessy as Riri's love interest. The video's gritty content and Dudley's resemblance to Chris Brown sparked speculation that the singer tried to re-enact her doomed relationship with Breezy.
