  1. I have to say that this video is not to be taken lightly. I commend Rihanna for finally coming out for all victims of rape and abuse. Rape and Abuse is not to be taken lightly. This is a highly dramatic event in ones life. Now I am all for justice on a human who wants to abuse or rape women and children, but I am for it in the right way.

  2. I’m not a fan of this woman or this type of music. But you’ve got to be kidding me with this post. Do you support free speech or censorship? Please make up your mind.

  3. No one wants to talk about rape. Everyone wants to blame the victim, even if the victim is a child (note how the conversation will always go to “what was she wearing” directions). To see a woman fight back against her attacker will be too much for the average person to stomach, male or female. Personally, I think vigilante justice is wrong, but given the average person’s view of rape, women don’t stand much of a chance in court so whether she meant to or not, Rihanna is making a statement here.

  4. Rhianna saw how much PR she got from the Chris Brown drama that her horrible singing couldn’t. Why did Ga Ga have to sell a mil in a week? Now she has all these pointless pop stars trying to copy with stunts. hahahaha This is why I have ALWAYS had mad respect for Tina Turner. She said over and over again she had no desire to relive her Ike Turner days through music or PR ploys etc. She is truly a class act. Tina wanted to fill stadiums with GREAT music. Not stunts!!!

    • I agree. This is nothing but a publicity stunt, plain and simple. And people ARE talking about this and will probably buy her album. She wins.

  5. It’s about time people speak up to shut up Rihanna! She just seems to think she can sing anything, dress any way and DO anything (whether in real life or videos!)she wants and it degrading, inhumane, and downright criminal! I saw the horrible video (and her previous 2 disgusting ones) and it’s just outrageous that she thinks it’s cool to portray a woman shooting a man in cold blood and then dancing around for another 3 minutes singing about how she did it. This is the kind of craziness that probably forced Chris Brown to smack her up in the first place.

    • Whoa. I’m not on Team Rihanna. But that was pretty harsh, even for me.

    • I’m saying. If this video was made to empower those that have been a victim of sex abuse and other abuse crimes, maybe she should have taken a less theatrical approach or put a disclaimer. I guess she wants to remorsefully put Chris Brown down just like this video. She needs to seek help, this isn’t the first time she has sung a song about something like this. She may have other issues outside of the relationship violence shared between herself and Chris Brown, this music video should not be aired as it is telling women that are victims of sexual abuse and abuse that they should just shoot the person that committed the crime and out off going to the authorities, but to instead kill the person that committed the crime and feel remorse for it while you’re doing it or after your done.

  6. You critics are apparently ignoring the message of the song: getting revenge for rape. The rapist sin is ignored while the crime committed by the one who got raped is highlighted. The rapist should be dead so he don’t rape anyone else. If you sympathise with the rapist and have no sympathy for the one avenging being raped, you might have some rapist tendencies yourself.

  7. Way to go people! With all the attention you’re giving this video, way more people will watch it than otherwise would have! 😀 Rihanna’s going to laugh all the way to the bank (when she stops having a hissy fit on Twitter.)

    • Good point, CC. Controversy always sells, but only because we give life to it. You don’t like it, don’t watch it.

  8. Yes, I agree. Maybe this is nothing but a publicity stunt,. But still I like her. You can download her album for free from http://www.torrentoff.com. I was wondered that the quality is always great.
