If you happened to have seen RIHANNA‘s music video for her new single “We Found Love”, perhaps you’ve found yourself asking…is it all about CHRIS BROWN?
And not only because the actor who portrays RiRi‘s love interest in the video, British boxer and model Dudley O-Shaughnessy, is decked out like Chris Brown with his signature shirtlessness and dyed blonde hair…there’s a specific scene in the video that features a car and the two people fighting. Seem familiar?
Granted, the scene doesn’t develop into full-out fisticuffs (ala Hollywood’s “flying fists of fury”, Chris Brown), but it’s an uncomfortably close parallel, nonetheless.
Entertainment news took a look at the video and noted the couple, played by Rihanna and Dudley, start out with a good dose of in-your-face body chemistry, doing all the crazy things young couples do. But then RiRi hints of drugs and alcohol as the reasons the relationship goes violently downhill in the middle of the video.
Is she telling the story of her and Chris Brown‘s tumultuous time together?
“We found love in a hopeless place…”
Rihanna sings with anguished tears in her eyes.
She’s already made it known far and wide she’s forgiven Chris Brown his trespasses (and even copied his onstage lapdancing routine for her own concerts), is this her way of telling Chris she’s ready for round two?
…of a relationship, that is…not in a boxing ring.
