Tonight ahead of the Detroit Lions game, ESPN premiered the video for Eminem and Rihanna’s latest chart-topping single, “The Monster.” The Rich Lee-directed video re-stages some of the most iconic moments from Eminem videos of old: the straight jacket scene from “My Name Is,” the 8 Mile Road moment from “Loose Yourself,” Eminem’s “The Way I Am” free-fall, and his 2001 Grammy performance of “Stan” which featured Elton John. Rihanna’s there too, with her banged bob and metallic blue lipstick, playing the therapist who helps Em to exorcise his demons. Another of Eminem and Rihanna’s videos, “Love the Way You Lie,” broke records for the most streams in the first 24 hours, and to this day it is one of the most watched YouTube videos ever– can they pull off a repeat performance? And is Rihanna taking new patients by any chance?
