New Video: Rihanna – ‘Man Down’

Published: Tuesday 31st May 2011 by David

After months of baited breath, Rihanna fans needn’t wait any longer for the visual for ‘Man Down‘ .

Lifted from her latest album ‘Loud‘, the video like the song itself sees the ‘Umbrella‘ singer return to her Caribbean roots and face the heavy hand of the law when she ends a man’s life by shooting him. As if her vocals weren’t enough to do the trick.

Anyway, without further adieu, here’s ‘Man Down’…

{Video Removed As Requested}

Sam’s 2 Pence:

Yawn.

While the clip aesthetically captured the vibe of the song well, it was ultimately let down by Rihanna’s many handicaps as a performer. For all the lighting, editing, and even authentic Caribbean backdrop, couldn’t hide the fact the 23 year old lacks any vitality. Indeed, instead of a bogle, butterfly, or dutty whine, Ms. Fenty did little else than pose, walk and sit during the gloomy clip. Making a potentially solid video, yet another one of her many mediocre offerings Moreover, proving yet again why the Beyonce‘s and Lady GaGa‘s of this world are simply on higher ground.

  20. WONDA May 31, 2011

    F*** off witcho dumbass critique.

    Don’t hate Rihanna cause she didn’t choose to go to Tobango to film the video where you and your orangutan family live.

  21. ThatGrapeShit May 31, 2011

    haaaaaaaaaaa Sam f***** dumb ass rihanna slays beyonce. beyonce cant even get top 10 with run the world (not Beyonce) Lol

    Now that is what you call a video it had more SUBSTANCE then your favs whole videography! I love it this is why she remains that BEST!

    Now watch it SLAY!

  23. Rihstan May 31, 2011

    Seriously i have never seen a hater as bad as you. You will never have a good word to say about Rihanna. This video slayed and is defineitky the best of this era. It is so dark, disturbing and emotional yet has beautiful cinematography. It also showed her acting skills she killed it in this video the look in her eyes was just haunting and i applaud riri for tackling such a serious issue and doing it with so much dignity. I cant see anyother artists who would even attempt anything like this, yet rihanna does so graciously without glorifyng r*** in any way. I havee to give her props for tackling this as the attack scene must have been so hard to film after everything with chris and you could see the fear and pain her eyes, AN AMAZING VIDEO. WELL DONE RIHANNA

  24. BIA May 31, 2011

    Ohh i tought SAM was a woman !
    But no, sam is a man!

    SO CUTE!
    Are u gay ?

  25. ThatGrapeShit May 31, 2011

    lol i Love you Wonda, so funny 😀

    BEYONCE IS NOT BETTER THAN RIHANNA. SHE HAS SLAYED BEY IN THE THREE PREVIOUS ERAS. BEYONCE IS FLOPPING. F.L.O.P.P.I.N.GGGGGGGGGGGGGG

  29. Your Queen! May 31, 2011

    Honestly Sam I think your hatred for Rihanna has stopped you from seeing how sick this piece of visual perfection is! The video is powerful man, give props! I absolutely love the video and her acting in it was believable too! Anthony Mandler did a great job!

  30. BIA May 31, 2011

    SAM, who are you?

    A GOAT ?

    You dont know what is really good!

    GO TO HELL!

  31. @pookie May 31, 2011

    lls come on TGJ

    We all know she doesnt dance. Man Down is NOT Pon De Replay. If u actually expecting a dance routine 4 this song then ur opinions 4 s***. U said somethin similar to her last snooze fest video. WHAT DO U F**** EXPECT FROM HER???? Shes gonna do what she does best which is look pretty. U and i know that….so i need 4 yall to get past the fact that SHE DOESNT move when yall review her videos.

  32. bebe/jay May 31, 2011

  33. Lisa May 31, 2011

    I don’t understand why when there is a post about any female artist, Beyonce and Lady Gaga are brought up. And the fans are always arguing each other and putting the other artist down when in fact, they are all in their own lanes. Beyonce is the hard worker, Gaga is going to give you weird and different and Rihanna is trying to prove a point and continue her rise to stardom. I love all three of the ladies and while we fans are pitting them against each other, they actually all support each other. If you don’t like the video that’s fine Sam but why do you have to compare her to anyone else? The fact is, she is still influential and her songs top the charts on multiple occasions because she fills a lane. Point blank. Everyone stop hating. It’s a disgusting disease. 🙂

  34. browngirl May 31, 2011

    @thatgrapeshit … oh no you didn’t!! don’t bring jessie & into this! she could sing circles around riri!!

  35. SWEETHE♥RT (A.K.A. ICON) May 31, 2011

    SAM No one cares about YOUR opinion. This song is not a dance video. It’s for a serious message. Rihanna SLAYED that video. It made kinda of emotional. She really played that part well. The video captivated the song perfectly. Rihanna’s best so far. What a strong message

    *Wipes tear*

  36. OCEAN May 31, 2011

    Sam Is Obviously Jealous Of Rihanna’s Looks…LOL!

    There Is No Other Reason For A Gay DUDE To Hate CONSTANTLY On A FEMALE

    Like He Goes In On Her Every Time…Likes NOTHING She Does. Sam Grow Up, And Get Over Your Insecurities….This Site Needs Rihanna & She’s Beautiful…

  37. Even.Your.mums.better.than.britney May 31, 2011

    This is gettin so tiring. Why can people stop critisizing and enjoy what they want? Stop trying to be the manager, visual director or pain in the batty. Just be a fan.

  38. Critic May 31, 2011

    That video sucks and it’s boring as hell.
    Try again, Rih Rih because this ain’t it.

    Beyonce & Gaga run this motha!

    Oh well anything to sell a record right?!?!

  41. Bey’knight May 31, 2011

  51. Yellow Gorillah May 31, 2011

    *GRABS PEGGY SUE*

  52. WildChild May 31, 2011

    Nice Video. lol at the people going in on S@m!

  53. joojoo May 31, 2011

    ummm yea sooo beyonc.ladygaga.rihanna are def n the same leage overall and even if u say beyonce is not gaga and rihanna are pretty much tied sooo sam is obviously just a hater and always has the same lame s*** to say but whatever…..anyways loved the ideo and she danced enough in this vid……its not dont stop the music and even though this eras vids have been a bit simple compared to rated r i still love them

    but also remember whenever sam interviews people he always asks about the three biggest female artist out and names beyonce,rihanna,and lady gaga soooooo he knows the truth ….he just wants to either be a hater or he knows how to get comments and views

  54. chrisj May 31, 2011

    uh actually its the gaga fans throwing shade

  55. SWEETHE♥RT (A.K.A. ICON) May 31, 2011

    @MOBWIFE

    I understand you do not like Rihanna. You honestly don’t understand the concept of the song which that Rihanna is singing another girl’s story it isn’t HER’S. What did expect the video to be like? This song has a serious message so it needs a serious video to executed the plot of the song. Rihanna has done that well.

  56. massoko May 31, 2011

    That dumb b**** didnt even fckin dance. People are already tired of her changin hair cut in every f***** era to remain relevant. She looks so cheap

  57. SWEETHE♥RT (A.K.A. ICON) May 31, 2011

    NEGATIVITY IS A DISEASE PEOPLE!

  58. Oceanmate May 31, 2011

    Mmmmmmmmmm, I’d rate her video a 2 out of 10; ten being the best.

  59. Yellow Gorillah May 31, 2011

    IMMA NEED THE GAGA STANS TO SIT THE F*** DOOOOWN

    BRITNEY HOLDS THE RECORD FOR THE HIGHEST FEMALE FIRST WEEK SALES

    SO YET AGAIN GAGA COMES SECOND NOW BOW DOWN TO BRITNEY!”

    AND BRITNEY ACHIEVED IT WITHOUT SELLING HER ALBUM FOR 99CENTS LOOOOOOOOOL NOW TAKE A SEAT TO THE RIGHT

    PEOPLE LOVE TO SHADE BRITNEY BUT YALL NEED TO KNOW THE TRUTH!

  60. mobwife May 31, 2011

    @SAM,

    Not sure why they are mad at you for telling the truth? She walked around, drank coconut juice and changed clothes. You pretty much summed it up! Lady Gaga is not the best dancer but she does give an effort and we all know that Beyonce like Ciara, SLAYS any dance routine!

  61. Imgunnacheckuboo May 31, 2011

    This slow ass player! SMH, I’ll wait for YouTube.

  62. SWEETHE♥RT (A.K.A. ICON) May 31, 2011

  64. Even.Your.mums.better.than.britney May 31, 2011

    Sam loves a bit of S&M. They have posted this previously. I guess Man Down was the next best thing for them following S&M. I guess Sam wanted to be the Man that was ‘down’ so I guess he was never going to be happy with the video….

  65. Yellow Gorillah May 31, 2011

    @MASSOKO

    THAT DUMB B**** DON’T NEED TO POP HER P**** TO SELL RECORDS BOOBOO
    NOW SIT OR YOU WILL END UP LIKE THE MAN IN THE VIDEO *SHOT DEAD IN CENTRAL STATION*

  66. Jay May 31, 2011

    Sam, there is no doubt writing and slandering this girl’s work are some of your hobbies. My suggestion is that you also add spell checking to the aforementioned list because it is “WITHOUT FURTHER ADO” not “WITHOUT FURTHER ADIEU”

    Adieu,

    Jay

    Some people really need get a new hobby. Having Hate for someone is not healthy mentally.

  76. that grape juice is a s*** site and f*** lady gag w**** May 31, 2011

  77. VA STAND UP!! May 31, 2011

    LMAO! Sam, you will never give up I love it! keep pissing these Rihtards stans off cause their dumbasses fall for it everytime! Lol!

    Anywho, I kinda liked it even though I don’t think it went with the song at all. To me the song is metaphorical, about breaking a man’s heart not literally killing him! She kinda went off the topic with the r***, the song doesn’t hint on r*** at all. *shrugs* I guess it was supposed to be ‘powerful’ and deliver a message but I’m not quite sure what the message was. *shrugs*

    Other than that, she didn’t do much but stand around & look pretty. I do like this song though, I like it when she sings with her accent & doesn’t attempt to hit notes she knows she can never reach.

  78. RHI RHI THE QUEEN May 31, 2011

    Did I miss something?…Why is it that everybody under the age of 25 feel like every pop star has to be dancing, gyrating and swinging a blonde weave around in circles in order for it to be a visually appealing video? I dont get it.. And the negativity of the admin is tacky for a entertainment website, i find it immature…*Heads to MissInfo*

  79. paigej May 31, 2011

  86. chrisj May 31, 2011

    she should do more reggae music its suits her!

  87. meme May 31, 2011

    um…i liked the beginning and the end but everything else was pointless and boring

  88. Bey’knight May 31, 2011

    Freaking video …. LOAD!

    @icon
    Have u ever considered what a bruno mars-produced song would sound like? I think they’ll mesh well. Their names almost equals hit already. Btw i disagree rih has better songs than beyonce. Rih’s best song are her hits, beyonce’s bests arent even singles. Do u seriously think songs like only girl n SnM will b rmbrd years to come compared to irreplaceable n crazy in love. Her songs r catchier n made for today’s radio. I agree bou better vids though

  89. Ray May 31, 2011

    The video is good, but please do not be ridiculous. Rihanna better than Beyonce…are you serious? Rihanna can hardly stay in tune, and looks uncomfortable when trying to dance on stage. Can’t ever make the forbes list, not praised by anyone but her stans. Need to change her look every two seconds to stay relevant, try to be as stink looking on stage as she can just to get attention, but who where they talking about at the billboard awards…not Rihanna that’s for sure. Check the ratings for the billboard awards. They were the lowest at the start of the show at 7.5 million, and when Beyonce came the ratings were at 9.4, then after her perfomance 8.5 million, so please don’t even go there. You stans are the only ones who think this woman is amazing. Beyonce first single may not have done well, lots of people including her stans and fans are not feeling the single, but Rihanna whole last tour and album FLOPPED.

    SMH I’M NOT HERE FOR BEYONCE WHEN SHE IS FLOPPING LEFT AND RIGHT

  92. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare May 31, 2011

    I liked it. 🙂 Although the Rated R era is still my favorite (brilliant in a lot of ways), I am enjoying the Loud era as well.

  93. queenbey will always s*** on ur fave and leave them no option but 2 pout May 31, 2011

    She leads men on den act innocent wen dey want a piece of ass!!!!! She fits dat role perfectly!!!!!

    I know Rihanna fans aren’t talking about album sales when R****** can’t even get a #1 album in the US.

  95. chrisj May 31, 2011

    lmao yall are to much

  96. SWEETHE♥RT (A.K.A. ICON) May 31, 2011

    @BEY KNIGHT

    Gurl, Beyonce’s songs are a hit (always a hit with ballads :)) or miss whereas with Rihanna’s song they are constantly consistent. I mean do agree that people won’t be remember Only Girl and S&M but people will definitely remember Umbrella, Disturbia, Take a Bow etc. Also Rihanna’s best song are never released songs like Fire Bomb, Cold Case Love, Cry, Question Existing, Stupid In Love etc.

    Rihanna and Beyonce are two different artists and I hate comparing them.

  97. mobwife May 31, 2011

    @SWEETHE♥RT (A.K.A. ICON)

    Oh please, at no point during this video/song does it indicate that she is not speaking in the 1st person! My like or not of her has nothing to do with what I saw and stated! I repeat, she didn’t have to be so vivid with the video! Displaying guns and shooting someone in a crowded square!?!? But hey you are a stan so of course its all good!

  98. Natalie May 31, 2011

    Though I’m not a Rihanna fan only a hater can say this video wasn’t good. Though I was expecting more it still kept my attention. Good job Rihanna just brush up on them dancing skills girl:)

  99. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare May 31, 2011

    @SWEETHE♥RT (A.K.A. ICON), “Sam, just want a stan war to happen by mentioning Beyonce and Gaga.” Right!!!!! He does it all.the.time. & they always fall for it.

    Since I like Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna, I just sit back and watch.

  100. onyx May 31, 2011

    i love it. is a cool song

  101. Yellow Gorillah May 31, 2011

    @CRITIC

    You are forgetting that Rihanna isn’t American she’s Carribean. Also, Rihanna releases her album when there’s high competition like when big country acts release their albums and country artists are always more successful than Pop and R’N’B artists. The US isn’t the only market in the world. Japan is the biggest music market and she had #1 albums there.

    SO SIT!

    Its funny because Beyonce fans are in a Rihanna post caring about someone they dont like, arent they the same fans who are mad at others for doing the same thing? Are these the same fans who call others haters for calling their artist names and speaking negatively but their doing it? YOU GUYS ARE DOING THE SAME THINGS YOU ARE AGAINST.

Just like rih had strings of hits from GGGB n LOUD but i wasnt talkin bou chart success tho but song quality. Even MJ had misses, hun these ppl cant churn out hits at every turn they’re human too lol

    My Honest Review of This Video:

    Rihanna walked around the Island, having fun with the people who lived there. Cute, hugging kids, and kissing elders, Cute. She rode a bike and went to a party. Cute. Then apparently Got R**** or Mistreated, (however you took it), then got mad and shot the dude. WTF Does this have to do with the lyrics of the song…..I feel Rihanna is so ghetto when she makes videos, their always half-assed. She looks Pretty, YES, WE KNOW. After Years of watching her, We know she’s gorgeous. But what other Talent does she have, the Whiney voice and constant Model poses wasnt doin it for me with this video. And People say Rihanna is Better than Beyonce???? ARE YOU F****** SERIOUS. Beyonce kills Rihanna vocally and dancing wise. Omg the Delusional Stans, To me everything she does caturs to Superficiality. So if your not Pretty, but can dance & sing , your not that special (Gaga), but if your Gorgeous and cant sing or dance, Your Epic?? Wtf is wrong with these kids. Boring video with a Weak Story Line .

    4/10 stars.

    …. But Beyonce fans act as though they are better than others, when in fact they are haters of other artist as well. In Beyonce post people try to get all civil rights on folks talking about “Cant we be happy for a black person”, “Crabs”, “This is why black people never get ahead”, etc blah blah blah. As sson as another black female artist is mentioned they start doing the exact same thing they just cried to someone else.

    Beyonce already started promo, so what other kind of promo is she trying to do? Beyonce is done, no one is check in for her… when an artist of Beyonce’s caliber is failing to break into top 10 with new singles and after being on Holiday for almost a year, it should have been a stronger showing. Beyonce is getting old and her music is not progressing, and after the latest fraud attempt she is looking bad.
    Rihanna is better than Beyonce, Beyonce is not being checked for… the songs you hear on the radio are RIhanna’s… whenever Rihanna releases a single it does extremely well… she doesnt need visuals to sell the song like Beyonce. Beyonce has been in the industry for over 15 years and as a solo artist she has only sold about 23 million albums, and thats after exiting from one of the biggest girl groups who grossed over $100 million.

    @Sam —

    Rihanna is little more than a “peddler of soft-core violent-tinged p***!”

    This video will NOT help her sell CDs. Matter of a fact, it’ll only further isolate her from an ALREADY weary mainstream.
    There is a saying “you can never go home again!” And this is exactly what Rihanna is now trying to do, BUT she’ll FAIL! Rihanna has no place to call “home”.
    The mainstream does NOT want her.
    Black folks don’t want her. She had HER ‘over 6-years in the game’ to improve as an artist. But instead, she’s DEVOLVED into some unidentifiable, unwieldy, naked gimmick!

    Don’t you see it – the non-interest when SHE (along with Jay-Z and L.A. Reid) recently released those 2-year-old Pity Party Pictures? No one took notice, because no one cares anymore!

    OVER, and I’ll repeat, OVER 8-Million watcher her 2009 Diane Sawyer 20/20 interview and she couldn’t turn that into CD sales – RIHANNA IS FINISHED..!!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT…!!!

    i may hate the way beyonce and her peoples be lying and stealling, but i cant sit here and deny the broads talent, she can sing better, she can dance better, her live perfomances(when shes not p**** pooping), are the bomb..

    but rihanna on the other hand, has zero personally when it comes to performing her s***..
    yes her voice has gotten better, but thats it..

    lets be 100%, if rihanna wasnt constantly using s** to sell her s***, and she wanst pretty, do yall really think she still be relevant?

    @LOL

    I cannot believe you just related Aailyah to Rihanna. You should burn in hell for making that comparison. Rihanna is no-where near Aailyah , Rihanna is not even fit to battle Ciara. Rihanna is a pretty girl, who got by on her looks and taking off her clothes to get attention. The Voice is bad, the Dancing is Non-Existant, and the Stans are Delusional. They keep saying she Slays, but where???? The Edge of Glory is still #3 on the Charts, I dont see Man Down or California King Bed anywhere? wtf is she slaying? and the Beyonce drama along with this???? Beyonce is a FAR FAR FAR better performer than Rihanna, Rihanna cant even meet Beyonce’s accomplishments or Album sales. Lets not go there. This video was Cheap & boring and im not a hater, im just telling it like it is, All her videos have just been pointless crap, there’s just not much to them except her looks. Thats too one-dimensional as an Artist.

    The Biggest Delusion I keep seeing on this site:

    Rihanna is Slaying your Favs.

    Question: How? Show me proof, stop with the petty fem talk and lets see some facts. Where is she slaying? Where is she charting? Where is this single getting radio play?

  153. lol May 31, 2011

    @Come The Fu*k ON
    Yes the plot of this video was alittle weak but this is a common scenario for people in Jamica she Rihanna was making this video realistic

    and i agree with you People need not compare Rihanna and Beyonce its REDUNDANT but since you INSIST just because Beyonce has a greater vocal range than Rihanna does NOT mean shes a better singer People are gonna love or hate a singer depending on their TONE not whether or not they can hit everynote in the piano plus rihanna is still growing as a vocalist just as Beyonce had to GROW http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohdW8Im8oC0 in the Destiny child auditon Kelly Rowland clearly sounded like the best singer in the group but Beyonce GREW into a better vocalist like Rihanna will and HAS

  154. Ari May 31, 2011

    well honestly i don’t think the video was about “dutty whining” and other authentic Caribbean dances. I think Rihanna was more concerned about getting a whole other message across, and dancing and s*** wouldn’t fit the theme. One clip you see her doing the butterfly then see her getting rap.I don’t know that doesn’t even sound right to me. You are missing the whole point.

  155. Yellow Gorillah May 31, 2011

    The Beyonce fan think Beyonce is the nex best thing since f****** Jesus himself.. That b**** is a great performer blah blah blah but what is an album without HITS! So please let’s not.

    No rihanna fans said anything about beyonce.. Sam wanted a stan war so he threw gaga and beyonce in the mix and the beyonce fans always fall for it as they are delusional and must fight every stan base to make beyonce seem great

Lets see her do a video about Female Empowerment, instead she’s weak , and lets a dude f*** her over and pretends to be big & bad by shooting him. Did she win or did she just commit a crime??? Great Video for the Youth of Today to copy. Lets dance half naked, put ourselves in dangerous situations, get r**** and then shoot the dude who r**** us. Great Message Rihanna!!!!

    then it became whos flopping harder, whos more talented contest, beyonce or rihanna..

    than the rihanna stans felt the need to bring up the fact that gaga is selling for 99c, which is pretty ironic…..

    Late last year, Rihanna explained at a listening session the meaning behind the song:
    “The song is about breaking a man’s heart,” Rihanna explains. “It’s a very cleverly written song and what I love about it is that it’s not a lyric you’d normally hear a female singing

    Yes as I stated, this is what I thought the song was about!

    Anyway, it took me an hour just to look at the video again, and like I said its cool. The song is dope, the video is cool.

  187. whystillinbusiness May 31, 2011

    Sam speaks the truth rather you like it or not, it was a simple video. Rihanna can never out shine Beyonce and y’all know it she proved it at the Billboard awards if Rihanna ever attempted to do something that was entertaining she would die.

    that paragraph actually made my day.. I hadnt had a good laugh in days…after reading that s***..

    my favorite part, was “please dont use a profile pic of a fat b**** who couldnt sell s***”….

    Stop mentioning beyonce stans/gaga stans
    whoever said Beyonce was struggling for top ten is a lie!! Beyonce is in the top 10 dumbass, along with Gaga.
    Rihanna stans always go on Beyonce and lady gaga stories to talk s***!!

  194. ratedxxx(akaratedx) May 31, 2011

    when in doubt, lets bring up other bishes who can sings circles, who can entertain better, who doesnt feel the need to be buck a** naked to sell records,
    just to bash them..

    my thing is is if youre gonna be shouting I’M A ROLE MODEL TO CHILDREN, why be buck ass naked, spread eagle, and making a video shooting people?

    this broad got her a** kick, and shouting victim in every single magazine, and yet shes making a video about shooting men?

    ok……………………………….shes a role model alright..

    I actually like the video, I am starting to like her, she isn’t boring and she is entertaining. I think she is a little crazy and wow, but she is interesting, more than most artist out here. This is coming from a huge CB fan.

  215. zania June 1, 2011

    typo I meant Rihanna is crazy and wild, people like that.

    the song and video is great and rihanna does not have to please the haters
    what she does is for people wholove and support her. no one cares about what the haters and lessors think because in rihanna’s life they r a non fukkkkin factor.

  217. Songbird June 1, 2011

    I thought this was a great video with a great message and glad it was raw and real and not filled with all the lights, and subliminal messages videos are about today. I think Rihanna stepped outside her usual comfort zone and decided to take a hand at something different and something that has substance.

  218. mel June 1, 2011

    I can’t believe they’re showing this video!! She walks around half-naked, tease the man. When he rapes her she kills him. They show the gun at least twice. They banned Ciara’s video?? Okay??I don’t get it!!

    @LOL re: May 31, 2011 at 11:00 pm —

    “hatin on every female artist from Beyonce to Kelly to Lady gaga to Rihanna”

    *30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland..?! (Beyond her, just yesterday, being seen carvoting with a ‘YT’ on some Miami Beach, and wondering how any HETEROSEXUAL black man could ever NOW support her…) Did YOU not go over to TMZ to read the firestorm that’s now gathering regarding Cheryl Cole being replaced by 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland? Seems like “The Mainstream” is NOT pleased with Mr. Cowls choices! (Yesssssssss…)

    “Guess the Brit’s don’t have any issue with Rowland’s thick accent.” <– A direct quote from/on TMZ (here's the link, have a read – http://www.tmz.com/2011/05/30/cheryl-cole-x-factor-uk-british-judge-kelly-rowland/)

    (continuing..) Hating on..

    *Lady Gaga..?! (Where and when, did I ever "hated on Gaga"? Store, and/or Credit Card Recipts, please?) All I've stated are the facts.. She's not very attractive, and she's currently removing Beyonce from the 'Top Of The Game' – facts ARE the facts..!!
    *Beyonce..?! Well, again, "the facts" ARE the facts: Lady Gaga, in only 2-short years, has come-for and taken Beyonce's place. She's accomplished, in only, said 2-short years, what it has taken Beyonce DECADES to accomplish.
    *Rihanna..?! Er..well, her lacking of any discernible talent(s), and her part in one of the biggest lies in modern pop-culture history notwithstanding…I guess she's a wonderful person and just a swell and lovely humanbeing!

    Listen, long-story short? …Don't hate me, I only read the news..

    X,Y,"and Z" — OUT..!!!

    Interesting GaGa has not removed Beyonce from the Top 10. Beyonce is still in fact in the top 10 ten!! Gaga time will fade out, it’s all Gay People buying her music!! Rihanna can’t sing But she’s hot right now!! Beyonce well she has TALENT and she’s not going anywhere, Beyonce is not promoting her singles like she use to, I seriously belive she’s just wants to put out music!! When you eat, sleep and breath music you don’t care where you end up on the charts!!
    Kelly Rowland well she has a number 1 song out!! SHe could at least had a fine ass white man, that dude on the beach was hit!! Ewwww

  224. M. June 1, 2011

    Gaga sales was mostly from Amazon that 99 cent s***!! She’s not the only artist that sold 1 million in a week!! I like Gaga but lets be real!! How is Beyonce played out when 5 mojnths ago she sold over 200,000 in first week sales alone for a DVD? Rihanna may not sell albums but she a good single artist.

    The music Industry have their Favorites and they play dirty just to get the artist to the top, ask Prince. Michael Jackson even stated about how the Industry is dirty!!

  225. Prince&Queen Bey June 1, 2011

    @Mobwife well at first listen of this song, it made Chris breezy come to mind bcuz of the incident but now looking at the video all the way through it was about getting r**** and not about breezy lol.

    But i dont know….. maybe Rihanna just through that being r**** storyline in there just to spice up the video. I think this song relates to her personal life in someway.

  226. KYLE June 1, 2011

    @GAGASLAYS

    THE ONLY REASON LADY COKEWHORE HIT 1 MILLION IN SALES IS BECAUSE SHE SOLD HER ALBUM FOR .99 CENTS.

    insecure, easily threatened, LIARS, HATERS

    Rihanna is doing her thing, not bad for a girl from Barbados, no stage parents, no girl group vehicle, just her…GOOD JOB RIHANNA!

    She is a worldwide smash, and Bey better be careful all she is becoming known for is her moves on the stage, she shows no depth, no growth, total stagnation, but she can move (and copy)

    This post is about Rihanna, so back to that…Nice Video, nice song, nice career progression overall. Im def still interested to see what she does next.

    @Links I doubt that Chris and Rihanna holds a grudge with each other, they are following each other on twitter. Just because I like the video it doesn’t take away my 100% support for CB. This will not hurt Chris especially in the urban area, I think most of the urban fans has moved on from 2009 incident but there still some urban fans living in the past. Its the mainstream fans that is still dwelling on the 2009 incident. The urban fans love Chris, so it won’t hurt him at all. I just think she always make her videos interesting and keep people talking. This was one video I actually like, it had a story and women can relate to it, in different ways, basically I see it as she saying that she isn’t a victim and she will shoot a man down if they touch her, most strong women think like that.

    @links I never seen Rihanna as timid like the media made her out to be, I always seen her as aggressive and can hold her own. no sense in living in the past. Rihanna Cosomo interview she did recently, I think that was directed at CB, she was talking about the incident and she mention that she likes to rip her shirt off after an concert. I think Rihanna is still in love with Chris and it will take a long time for her to completely move on.

  247. Eric_101 June 1, 2011

    She bajan N tryna sound like a fake ass Jamaican. If she wanted to go back to her roots then she should have mixed some soca or calypso with pop.. Make a new genre or something.

    I wanted to adore this, and I liked the ideas going here, but I can’t say they were fully realized. She’s always ALMOST there, but never quite does it for me. She just hasn’t got the talent to WOW me. Overall, it fizzled for me in the beginning, reved up toward the middle and fizzles again toward the end.Even creative editing can’t make her command the screen.

  251. Independent Thinker June 1, 2011

    This is my first time ever commenting on a Rihanna post. I am not a Rihanna fan. I’m not even a supporter. Don’t own a single album; but when I read the synopsis for this video it actually peaked my interest, so I watched, and I must say, I liked it. It told a story, which is what videos USED to do before music became the shallow mess that it is now. Never would I have thought that Rihanna of all people would give me a sense of nostalgia with this clip, but she did and I appreciate that. I also think that this style of music (reggae/island) suits her voice well. Rihanna is by no means a premier vocalist; but I can almost appreciate her voice as long as she’s not trying to do the wrong things with it (ie: hit power house notes, run, rift, growl,vibrato, you know all the things real singers do). The video did not call for a dance break. It simply painted us a picture of the song and in my opinion it was the perfect picture. I even appreciated her subtle but effective acting. the “Man Down” video was a good watch.

  252. African( Senegal ) loooove breezy!!!!!! June 1, 2011

  259. Landen June 1, 2011

    Hey Rihstan. I agree with everything you said about her acting skills. As a fan, great acting rih. And I agree that her ability to discuss r***, takes a lot from an artist. One thing bothers me about what you said though. You mentioned that props to her for publicly showing what r*** does to victims and you mentionbthe issue with chris. Well first of all. Chris never r**** her so wtf is she doing incorporating tht with her aincident with chris? Next quetion is what the f*** is she doing bringing that shut up again for after she dropped the retraining order, has been defending the s*** out of following him on twitter, and is rumored heavily towanting to get back to gether with him but is afraid to lose fans over because of how they’ve been reacting on twitter over her just following him. Ya know what? Great acting. But f***** up messave that just confuses fans and misleads the people that follow your personal life.

  260. rese June 1, 2011

    Gaga has been in the game longer than Rihanna. When rihanna was still back in Barbados, gaga was already headling a band and releasing records under her original name stephanie Germanotta. This chic has been trying to make it big for years. Too bad it didnt happen until she changed her name and stealed a friends style and ideas.

  261. rese June 1, 2011

    Rihanna was already in forbes in 2008.

  262. TaTa June 1, 2011

    Okay, so you’re in Jamaica and before you drink coconut water outta fresh coconuts you drink it from a product placement carton for a brand? The dancing in the club, bogel…really? Rihanna was the lightest in the video, there are other light people in J.A even minus bleaching. The guys in Rihanna’s videos are light or brown but he is the black aggressor…. she caters to a a “pop” audience….

    “when she ends a man’s life by shooting him. As if her vocals weren’t enough to do the trick”

    Lol! Killing me Sam, Killing me.

    I’m starting to have a problem with Anthony Mandler. In his videos he seems to be show casing Jamaica in a bad light (Literally too! the lighting SUCKED). Didn’t he direct ‘Find your love’ ? Now this one. Yes, Jamaica has it’s problem with crime but it need not be showcased on a worldwide front all the time. The whole concept is awful! ( A previous commenter said Bonnie and Clyde type video – THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECT!) And there are beauties in JA. I know it’s about r*** and were supposed to be focusing on Ri Ri but were are the array of beauties in all hues at that party/ in the whole video?

    Note to Rihanna: Learn some NEW dance moves.

    I actually like this video. Most videos today don’t even match the lyrics to the song. But, this video did. It told a story and it made sense. Good job Rihanna.

  266. bella June 1, 2011

    Im starting to lose respect for this blog…SAM nah dude thats not the way to go..I respect ur freedom of speech but ur starting to come across as a hater..I admit this is ur blog but u should be bias and putting ur girl beyonce with lady gaga in the same sentence is a dang shame…lady Gaga is more of an artist than beyonce will ever be..(my 2 pence opinion)..

  267. sisa sly from sa June 1, 2011

    well iam a beyonce fan but i always give props where props are due.

    secondly iam also a film student and that video was what we in the film industry call amatuer. the story was good and the scenery was in the carribian islands so it had so much potential. props to rihanna for sub-par acting (dont compare beyonce’s acting to rihanna plz just dont) it could have been better and dont hate on sam for his opinion same way yall think yall can have on opinion on beyonce and gaga. sam said she walked aroud and posed are you really gonna say his lyng.

  268. James_9481 June 1, 2011

    I LOVE this video omg!!

    The story and acting and everything!

    At first i was like “Ri ri dont shoot :o”

    Then by the end of the video “F****** SHOOT THAT NIGGAA!!”

    HAHAHAHA!

  269. bella June 1, 2011

    hhhmm now that I heard this song twice it aint bad…but I believe Lauryn Hill couldve nailed this track..it needs more attention and miss riri is only nailing it at face value…

  270. I see June 1, 2011

    Well, I loved the video…it had a story to it, sam ur hate is pathetic

  271. dakkylove June 1, 2011

    definitely one of Rihanna,s best videos to date and it showed off her island roots as well as telling story i love it

  272. YOOSONDALOOSE June 1, 2011

    It’s a really good video! Has a better message than CKB. She doesn’t look as good but it is very different and innovative.

  273. Dunk June 1, 2011

    One Of the Best Videos i’ve seen all year! she smashed it, song is FIRE!!!! and a big warning!

  274. bbbbbbb June 1, 2011

    she would love it if she would get r****… not shoot him the next day… slu t

  275. kel June 1, 2011

    I can’t believe Jay is less focused on fefe dobson and more on riri! Rihanna stoled the whole vibe from Fefe!!

  276. TrueSkarlet June 1, 2011

  279. Janet June 1, 2011

    Hello people…this is a mini remake of A Time to Kill starring Samuel Jackson. She changed a few things around…same concept. His daughter was r**** and he hid inthe courthouse waiting until the r***** came through to kill. Same concept!!! Nothing epic about this at all. #Donew/thisbullshit!

  280. Your Queen! June 1, 2011

    This site is so ghetto, seriously. The amount of coons that comment here is gross!

  281. anna June 1, 2011

  283. rihannafan June 1, 2011

  284. True Skarlet June 1, 2011

    Does my icon still show up

  285. True Skarlet June 1, 2011

    Ok, NVM, that was a dumb test D:

    Really you guys have to be f****** joking for even attempting to say this was good…
    Great f****** song the video on the other hand a sloppy cheap sweaty mess…… *****she should be slapped again*****

  288. KAT DELUNA FAN June 1, 2011

    My fav song from her but her videos are so boring
    I dont know what to say else
    I ll listen to the song w/o watching this

  289. Remey June 1, 2011

    Not every artist has to dance or pop their ass like Beyonce. She is not the staple artist, nor GaGa. Rihanna has claimed her right as an individualistic artist. This video has captured the essence of the song in a way that no one expected. It’s so easy to make a Dance video to this, but why? I’m glad Rihanna didn’t take that route. This video proves her as an everlasting artist. There is meaning in this song and this video, unlike Run the World. And the message is clear, unlike Judas and Born This Way, in which you have to think about for hours before it makes any sense. So please take that Beyonce and GaGa stuff somewhere else.

    Man Down is like a sophisticated evolution of Rude Boy. This song/video come at the perfect time for summer. The shade that TGJ throws at Rihanna is pathetic. It makes them lose credibility because Rihanna has already claimed a number 1 album, number 1 singles, multiple awards, epic unforgettable videos, and stunning magazine spreads for the LOUD era. So why are you constantly trying to make it seem like she should be following Bey when this new Bey era is questionable……

  290. Marise June 1, 2011

    i would swear you’re an undercover stan since you spend so much time hating rihanna. you put so much effort into it, it’s pathetic and funny….

    stay pressed, sam *sips Vita Coco*

  291. B4REAL02 June 1, 2011

    I like this video better than any other from this album……I luv it!!
    And every video doesn’t require her to dance……Yes it would be nice to see some dancing in some of her videos like her old material from back when she wasn’t popular…….but hey whateva!!!

  292. V June 1, 2011

    Without further adieu? It’s ado not adieu, SMH

  293. RosaRubbel June 1, 2011

    The best video from this era so far! I like it!

  294. Ariana June 1, 2011

    *yawn* another Rihanna post full of hatred and shade.

    I don’t even like her but you should give her some credit. Video is good and fits perfect to the song.

    Bringing Beyoncé & Lady Gaga’s names up was completely unnecessary.

  295. BEYDAY-06-28-2011 June 1, 2011

    I like RIRI and some of her songs but she sucks as a performer and she does tend to sing in the same key..classic example of all beauty and no real standard of talent…RIRI has the s*** thang going and it clearly works for her… i cant knock the gurl hustle..make dat money honey!!

  296. X,Y,”and Z” June 1, 2011

    K, I JUST read ALL of the comments over on huffingtonpost regarding THIS video.
    (I’m thinking – THAT mainstream crowd is her ‘bread and butter’)

    …Wow, just wow..!! Safe to say, the common perception of this video — “Rihanna has AGAIN milked ‘Feb 8th 2009’ for ALL it’s worth already”..!! While Chris has moved on, she continues to revisit a situation that, it’s NOW revealed, she-herself had a hand (or spiked heel) in initiating!

    That particular post is NOT generating the amount of comments she’d had at one time.
    DON’T take my word for it have a read for yourselves: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/01/man-down-rihannas-new-music-video_n_869567.html

    We’ve got to all ask ourselves – “Why would she NOW do such a video/song, when there was so-little expressed disdain, concern, or attention given to her recently self-released 2-year-old Pity Party Pictures?” NO one cared THEN, no one cares now.

    Riri is left looking (again?), like someone who’ll use anything, or anyone to further her career (terminally-ill 11-year-old girls withstanding)!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

  297. Havana June 1, 2011

    the video like the song itself sees the ‘Umbrella‘ singer return to her Caribbean roots and face the heavy hand of the law when she ends a man’s life by shooting him. As if her vocals weren’t enough to do the trick

    ================

    you people still falling for the bait that SAM puts out

  299. lets be real June 1, 2011

    i love riri but lets be real sam’s right she doesn’t have a great voice does she and when it comes to the music game she can’t step to beyonce and gaga, for prove compare her performance at the billboatrd awards to beyonce’s…#love her but lets be real

  300. s*** June 1, 2011

    THE QUEEN RIRI
    I LUV U

    @LOL and the other jealous eediot talking ish about Jamaica. Stop chew pon wi name like wrigley’s and just ease off ok! Gwaan like unno know everydamn thing weh gwaan bout ya!

    Nice video on mute. Her voice is so annoying on this song. Oraine Barrett (leading man) is so friggin hot though.

  302. iLoveXtina June 1, 2011

    Why would she dance in this type of video/song anyway?

  303. SAAAYYYWHAAATTT June 1, 2011

    Why is she starting to look mad FAT!? It was iight..I wish she would sit down and stop singing and just be a model..

  304. X,Y,”and Z” June 1, 2011

    @Team Breezy (and some of you Camp Fentyites)

    Listen, here’s the “numbers of it all” (the be all, ‘end all of it all’..)

    If you think, after a year of her brooding silence. After her THEN lying and having racists, haters and other “sinister hands” then spin-up untruths into reality, as the THEN weary and sheepish masses guzzle-down the TMZKoolaid, only to THEN appear on 20/20 with questions and answers well rehearsed in advance (to be THEN viewed by OVER 8-Million waiting-in-bated-breath viewers) to only then FAIL to deliver a #1 CD. Are we to THEN not learn from recent history? Are we to NOW think this video/song will change the course of Rihanna’s now-sinking career?

    This video/song, is her very-LAST ditch effort to revive/save a flatlining career! How do you go from, less-than 2-years ago, being-then ‘the darling of the media,’ to being dissed by the different ends of the political spectrum (Trump and Farrakhan), to recently being largely ignored, even as you publish your 2-year-old Pity Party Pictures?

    (I’ll say again…) If you couldn’t…”move” or “convince” 8.2-Million sympathetic/empathetic eyes, with a well-rehearsed, carefully edited, “shot-in-high-gloss-cinematography made-to-order “Rihanna prime time Infomercial'”, then you’ve already lost them – FOR GOOD..!!
    (here are the actual ratings numbers for that 2009 20/20 interview: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2009/11/07/tv-ratings-rihanna-sings-for-abc-2020-wins-with-youth-smallville-viewing-rising/32902/ )

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT…!!

  305. Alexis June 2, 2011

    Why are you always hating on Rihanna, she wasn’t going for a upbeat vibe. Obviously she wouldn’t be dancing like Beyonce or Lady Gaga if she is supposed to be r**** in her video. She was trying to send a message. It seems like everytime something about Rihanna is mentioned you have something to say. Everyone else likes it according to the poll, but you. Maybe you should think before you speak and post stupid things.

  306. OhYEEEA! June 2, 2011

    I am not a STAN of her, but I give prop where props are due! This was an amazing video visually, and had an important message….R***. It occurs each day with countless # of women. Of course she isnt gonna be dancing, its NOT a dance song people!

    These young F*** need to stop worrying about the next dance they can do in the club, and LOOK AT THE BIGGER PICTURE! Rih is clearly doing big things this LOUD era.

  307. Dom June 2, 2011

    Of course you were going to have a bad comment to say about the video.
    Your a hater, AN ABSOLUTE HATER.
    This video is amazing!! And you know it.
    She can act better than your Beyonce, who’s videos SUCK.

  308. STOP HATING YOU DUMNB H*** June 9, 2011

    PEOPLE GONNA TALK WHETHER YOU DO BAD OR GOOD..
