Rihanna's "Man Down" Music Video

Rihanna's "Man Down" Video: Good or Bad Message?

In her just-dropped music video for the song "Man Down," Rihanna takes murderous revenge on a man who sexually assaulted her, and the video is garnering a lot of buzz for its dark themes in lieu of the singer's own history with domestic violence. Rihanna used her Twitter to explain the video's positive message, saying, "Young girls/women all over the world...we are a lot of things! We're strong innocent fun flirtatious vulnerable, and sometimes our innocence can cause us to be naïve! We always think it could NEVER be us, but in reality, it can happen to ANY of us! So ladies be careful and #listentoyomama! I love you and I care!" But it seems like the video's plot is more about fighting violence with violence, and is that really a good message to young women? Watch the video below and tell us what you think.

I like the video but yeah it might be sending the wrong message to young people. it's mixed emotions.

wish there was a third choice for voting...I think it's an honest portrayal of the feelings and consequences of acting them out....
