The 10 best Eminem videos so far
'Lose Yourself,' 'Love the Way You Lie,' 'Survival'... on the cusp of 'Marshall Mathers LP 2'
'Love the Way You Lie' featuring Rihanna
Eminem era: Tortured but sober Eminem
Best lyric: "I'm Superman with the wind at his back, she's Lois Lane/But when it's bad, it's awful/I feel so afraid I snapped."
What makes the video great: The Joseph Kahn-directed video amped the intensity of the song about domestic abuse and a relationship that neither party can get out of. As their world burns and collapses around them, the lovers played by Dominic Monaghan and Megan Fox go through their vicious cycle. Eminem and Rihanna add their own simmering chemistry to the clip that in no way glorifies violence, although it’s disturbing to see that Fox is still with her abuser at video’s end.
