Rihanna Looks Like That Wet Broad From 'The Ring' In Her "Man Down" Video

I'm all for artistic expression, and the fact that Rihanna shoots some dude who find out is physically abusing her in her "Man Down" music video — her fifth so far from current album Loud — doesn't really bother me at all. It's the fact that the song itself is an utter snooze that cheeses me off.

Girl, did the red hair dye sink into your noggin too far? When the hell is the rad "Fading" getting a single release?

I get that she's had three consecutive #1 hits off Loud, but passing off the snoozy "California King Bed" and challenging "Man Down" at this point is a gamble.

Surely "Fading" would have been another Hot 100 chart topper in RiRi's cap?
