"Your Daily POPculture Re-up"

Video: 'Man Down' Rihanna

Rihanna takes it back to the islands for the “Man Down” visuals.  The video, directed by her frequent collaborator Anthony Mandler, opens with Rihanna shooting a man in the middle of a train station.  It then takes you back to the day before and shows Ri-Ri working her long, red locks and super cute outfits through the Jamaican streets.  By the end of the video, we find out that the man she shot was abusing her.  I’m not sure what kind of message she is trying to convey, but the video is shot beautifully and of course, she looks great.

Sidebar: Did ya’ll see her sippin’ on that VitaCoco.  That’s product placement for ya! Ri-Ri is a spokesperson for the popular drink.

    Rihana is a fucking bitch for coming to Jamaica to fuck around. Jamaicans and Barbadians are no friends, hence she did the video trying for further point the image of Jamaica in a Negative light. But let me tell Rihana this Bardaboes will never be as sucessful as Jamaica I use to be a fan cause i’m from the carribean and by extention Jamaican and we Jamaican never put any of our caribbean neighbours down but they always do it. To hell with the rest of the caribbean people who dont like Jamaicans. To hell with you all!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jamaicans are good friendly people but dont get us on the wrong side, we are very serious people too. We dont take foolishness. espesciallywith the rest of the carribbean. Rihana knew her intentions, and her intentions were to hurt Jamaicans and the Jamaicans image. Rihana had a motive to negatively impact the image of Jamaica and Jamaicans. Rihana whatever took place in Barbadoes with our Jamaican lady who was cavity searched illegally is wrong and will never be right at violence happens every where in the world and we jamaicans are sorry it happened. If that had happened in Jamaica we would of apologised to the Barbadian people but that is no reson for her to tarnish Jamaica by what she did in her video and I strongly believe that this video should be banned all together.
