Visual rhetoric is appropriate for analyzing a music video because a video is not read, it is watched.
Better yet, the ups and downs of relationships in general. First let's look at the choice in a featured singer. Now, don't get me wrong Rhianna is a fantastic singer and he could have chosen her based on just her voice, but why for this song?
Everybody knows about Rhianna's abusive relationship with Chris Brown and Eminem and Rhianna are playing off of that.
Now, the chorus in the song: Well that's alright because I like the way it hurts. Just gonna stand there and hear me cry? Well that's alright because I love the way you lie. How love blinds us, if you will. She's making excuses for the way her partner treats her. It's as if to say "Whatever you do, I'm still going to be here, and it's not your fault.
I love everything you do, even if it's wrong" In the first verse Em shows an argument between two people, and how she stays even though she wants to leave. No you ain't, come back" "We're running right back here we go again its so insane cause when it's goin good its goin great but when it's bad it's awful.
Then, he talks of sinking so low as to lay hands on her: I don't even know his name. I laid hands on her, I'll never stoop so low again. I guess I just don't know my own strength. In the second verse, "You ever love somebody so much you can barely breathe when you're with them?
You meet and neither one of you even know what hit them? Got that warm fuzzy feeling, yeah them chills, used to get them. You swore you'd never hit them never do nothing to hurt 'em, now you're in each other's face spewing venom in your words when you spit 'em.
You push, pull each other's hair, scratch, clawed and bit 'em, pin 'em down, so lost in the moments when you're in them" This shows the initial downfall of a relationship.
It shows how great it starts off and how it changes so quickly. How you break promises that you said you swore not only to them, but to yourself, that you'd never do. You don't get another chance, life is no nintendo game, but you lied again.
Now you get to watch her leave out the window, guess that's why they call it window pane. After the relationship is broken off, the person who caused it is upset and wants another chance.
Now in the final verse: Maybe that's what happens when a tornado meets a volcano, all I know is I love you too much to walk away now.
Come inside pick up your bags off the sidewalk. Don't you here sincerity in my voice when I talk?Transcript of Love the Way You Lie Music Video Analysis.

My InterpretationWelcome to my analysis of Love The Way You Like Part 2, if you haven't read mine from part one yet i suggest you do so as it will explain the other side of the story. I don't think this one is as well written as part one as it's a lot more obvious, and also seems to blame the guy when part one said that it's both of their faults.
but here's an analysis anyway.5/5(5). You love the person so much so you say whatever you can to make them come back, to make them stay. You say that it'll never happen again, but deep down you know it will but you just want to say whatever you can to prevent them from leaving.4/5(12).
