Anthony Mandler Talks Rihanna and 'Man Down' Video
“Man Down” is definitely one of the most popular songs off her platinum album LOUD and it looks like we have a video to look forward to. Frequent collaborator Anthony Mandler talked to MTV about the video and what we can expect from the popstar:
“We’ve done 16 videos together; they’re not all tough,” Mandler said when asked about what fans can expect from the new clip. ” ‘If I Never See Your Face Again,’ ‘Hate That I Love You,’ ‘Take a Bow’… Yeah, I mean, I’m known for the ‘Disturbia’s and the ‘Russian Roulette’s and things like that, but ‘Only Girl (In the World)’ is certainly an ethereal kind of empowering, beauty-filled video and what we’re coming with next … is certainly gonna flip peoples’ minds with ‘Man Down.’ “
So far, there aren’t any details about the video. All we know is that fans will be talking. ‘Man Down’ is about a woman who shoots a man and is looking for forgiveness. I predict guns and tears.
“We shot the video last month in Jamaica and it’s my favorite song she’s ever recorded, so I was really excited to get involved,” he said. “And it’s just one of those songs that demands a strong narrative and visual, and let’s just say she let me go all the way. So I think you can expect something that’s dramatic and shocking and intense and emotional and uplifting and enlightening.”
