THE SYMBOLISM BEHIND RIHANNA’S NEW MUSIC VIDEO AS INTERPRETED BY MOI.

I have another confession my friends. I am an over thinker. I over analyze, I read between the lines, I try to find the meaning behind every symbol, action, or word. I blame every single one of my English teachers for creating this monster. It’s a gift and curse I must admit & a habit I’ve learned to push away throughout the last year or so but I’m a girl. It’s who I am & I can’t help it. I’ve pretty much stopped doing this in my personal life but when it comes to silly things like pop culture I just can’t control myself.

Anyways, I do this thing (it’s quite sad actually or maybe you’ll find it comical) where I try to dissect celeb tweets or lyrics or music videos. Sometimes I’m pretty on point about things & then I hear about it on Perez or some other media outlet & I’m like “YESSSSS I knew it!” & I feel cool.

Well, on that note I shall give you my take on Rihanna’s new music video for ‘Take Care’ featuring Drake. This way, when you hear about later you will stop & say to yourself, “Pshh, I read that on Suzie Says weeks ago”.

You’re welcome.

So, I couldn’t help but notice the over usage of showing a bull & a fish in the video. Like, it was basically featuring Drake, a bull, a fish, & a bird. The entire music video is pretty simplistic but I know these tricks & I know that there’s meaning behind everything they do in these videos. I’ve read Rihanna’s subliminal tweets, I know she’s still in love with Chris Brown. Therefore, here’s my analysis..

Chris Brown is a Taurus & Rihanna is a Pisces which is the fish sign. The video is all about them!

BAM!

There you have it folks. Watch the video & tell me what YOU think!

THUG LIFE?

It’s no secret that Rihanna loves getting inked. With more than a dozen tattoos, the ‘Talk That Talk’ songstress clearly also walks the walk but her latest tat has everybody else talking too.

Rihanna got real hood this weekend in L.A. & channeled her inner Tupac by getting ‘THUG LIFE” tatted on her knuckles.

Ew.

But I mean, she’s kinda is about that life isn’t she?

When she’s not shooting high fashion editorials for Armani she smokes weed in public cause the po-lice don’t phase her lol.

What do you think about Rihanna’s new tattoo?

Once she tweeted a few pictures, Rihanna went on a recent Twitter rant promoting her newfound #THUGLIFE on Twitter.

Such a badass. NOT.

How about you do get a teardrop tatoo on your face Rihanna so you look utterly ridiculous, kinda like Gucci Mane.

THANKFUL IN MIAMI.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving here are the Top 5 Suzie Says is thankful for!

  • One of my favorite NYC restaurants is opening up in Miami! If you’ve never seen the movie Serendipity, or have never eaten anything off the world’s largest menu you are seriously missing out! Serendipity 3 will open up on Lincoln Road by the end of the year! I can’t wait for some Frozen Hot Chocolate! Yum!

  • There may still be an NBA lockout & it’s unfortunate we can’t watch our Miami Heat play, but at least we can be thankful for the Miami Marlins & our brand new stadium right? I can’t wait!

  • While France government banned Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ video from being played on any of their channels, we can be thankful that our country isn’t so uptight. So watch the video all you want & be thankful!
  • As some of you may know, I’m over the Kardashians. All of them, even Bruce. I’ve unfollowed them on Twitter & refused to vote for Rob on Dancing with the Stars. It’s serious. So this is why I am so thankful that this season none of the Kardashians will be “taking” Miami. This city is ours, go take New York.
  • & last but not least, while the rest of the country has seen crazy amounts of snow since October ,we Miami residents can be thankful for our amazing weather year round! Pool party anyone?

Katy Perry Video Tease.

The past is like a handful of dust that filters through your fingers disappearing little by little. I wish, for one day, I could go back. In another life, I would do things differently.
In her latest song, ‘The One That Got Away’ for her Teenage Dream album, Katy Perry makes everyone think about a relationship in their past that they wish they could go back & change.
The video plays out like a mini movie, which seems to be a popular choice for artists lately. I can’t help but think of Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ video when I watch this trailer. Never the less, the song truly touches me & I can’t wait for the final outcome!
The official video will be released in just days on 11-11-11 & even includes a Stevie Nicks voiceover & Diego Luna as her love interest! Check it out below!

BRAND NEW MUSIC VIDEO: WE FOUND LOVE.

 

“It’s like screaming and no one can hear. You almost feel ashamed that someone can be that important, that without them you feel like nothing.  No one will ever understand how much it hurts. You feel hopeless, like nothing can save you and when it’s over and its gone you almost wish that you can have all that bad stuff back so you can have the good.”

That’s what Rihanna’s brand new video for ‘We Found Love’ starts off with. A video that many fans are already buzzing about. At first I had to disagree, I didn’t think this guy looked anything like Chris Brown. But the more I watch it, the more I can’t deny the uncanny resemblance of her love interest to that of her infamous ex-boyfriend. Although I don’t believe the video is all about him, you can’t ignore the fact that the entire relationship greatly impacted Rihanna & this video most liked was inspired by that.

The entire video is so magnetic. Whether you’ve been in a situation as dramatic & self-destructive as the one portrayed in her new Requiem For A Dream-ish video or not, I think many people can relate. Love is a drug & this one definitely wins my vote for best video of the year. Rihanna & genius director Melina Matsoukas did an amazing job at delivering this intense love story. Check it out below!

Rihanna Follows Chris Brown.

Rihanna has disappointed a few fans, but it’s not something she said, it’s something she did.

Last week, Rihanna decided to “follow” her infamous ex, Chris Brown –on Twitter that is. Then, a few seconds later received A LOT of back lash for it from crazy obsessed fans on the social media network which then led to Rihanna responding with:

@iStan4Rihanna_ its fuckin twitter, not the alter! calm down”

(which btw, she misspelled “altar” SMH)

What do you think about it? Why do you think Rihanna would want to follow Chris on Twitter? Isn’t his account public anyways? Justtttt sayin’.

Chris Brown Loses It On The Set Of GMA.

If you haven’t already heard, Chris Brown got a little out of control on the set of Good Morning America yesterday  & broke a glass window in the building that apparently shattered & fell all over the sidewalk. After the interview with Robin Roberts, Chris was furious (for obvious reasons), ran into his dressing room, began screaming & ripping off his clothes (hot, i know) & then threw a chair at the dressing room window.

I mean, was ripping off that tacky jean vest like if he was going to fight someone really necessary? Ok, maybe it wasn’t, but he looked much better without it ;) While most people want to point their fingers at the guy once more, I would like to defend him.

Like it was mentioned by Robin  many times throughout the interview, a lot of negative things happened 2 years ago and “we’ve been through it”. Exactly woman! We’re all aware! What is the point of your interview? Are you really trying to get him so angry to the point where he punches YOU in the face too?!

To Chris’s defense, he tried steering the interview back to its main purpose –his new album F.A.M.E plenty of times. He even went on to explain to Robin what “F.A.M.E.” means –Forget All My Enemies or Fans Are My Everything…apparently he couldn’t just pick one. Regardless, Robin wasn’t getting the hint. She continued to bring up irrelevant shit and then giggle & say “thank you” and smile as if she didn’t just bring up one of the worst times in his life on live television.

You are NOT Barbara Walters bitch. Stop trying to turn this into a deep 20/20 segment where you finally make Chris really cry & get the best interview of your life. You really aren’t that great so stick to the script, ask the questions, stay on his good side, and move on with the show.

The interview is just painful to watch. Do you think Robin Roberts went a little overboard with the Rihanna mentions or is Chris Brown just a madman?

Epileptics Beware.

Although I’m a little late on this post. I had to post it for everyone who has not watched Kanye West’s ‘All of the Lights’ music video featuring Rihanna & Kid Cudi.

The video starts off with a general warning.

Ok, not scary at all. This would just make anyone –epileptic or not, super intrigued. Great idea!

The beginning of the video makes absolutely no sense to me, but I came to the conclusion that they did this solely to prevent an epileptic attack right off the bat. They mentally prepare you for what’s to come so that you sit at the edge of your seat scared for your life & then BAM! 

The video was directed by Hype Williams. Tell me what you think!

Rihanna Gets Kinky In Her Latest Video.

Rihanna’s latest single ‘S&M’ will probably be her most controversial video thus far and according to YouTube, you must be at least 18-years-old to view it.

There’s whips, rope, bondage, & even a banana –oh yeah, I said banana. But what else did you except with lyrics like “sticks and stones may break my bones but whips and chains excite me”?

Rihanna got together with the director of her other most sexy music videos’, Melina Matsoukas and there’s even a special appearance by Perez Hilton!

What do you think of her new video? Too raunchy?

Rihanna Releases New Single.

It’s been only one week since Rihanna finished up her North American tour & she’s already back to work. Yesterday she released her new song ‘Only Girl (In The World)’ which is the first single off of her fifth studio album Loud; and loud is exactly the tone she is aiming for.

‘Only Girl’ is an upbeat dance track with amazing lyrics but that shouldn’t be surprising. The track’s poppy/techno sound takes us back a little to Rihanna’s older stuff. It was produced by Stargate, the same producer/songwriter who collaborated with Rihanna for her last hit ‘Rude Boy’.

Loud will be released on November 16th. Tell me what YOU think!
