Joseph Kahn says Eminem and Rihanna’s new video has “nothing” to do with their personal lives

HollywoodNews.com: Eminem and Rihanna both have a history of domestic violence so when the two set out to create “Love the Way You Lie,” it was natural to think that their latest video was maybe an imitation of their lives.

However, the video’s director, Joseph Kahn, told MTV that the message behind the video “has nothing to do with what’s gone on in either artist’s personal life. “There are definitely things in both Rihanna and Eminem’s [lives] that we have to be very sensitive about when we were making this video, [but] it’s not a story about Eminem or Rihanna.”

He adds, “It’s a specific thing that I created for Dominic and Megan to play two people with very specific story lines to each other. These are fictional characters in my head but obviously based on real human beings. The subject matter is some of the most complex stuff I’ve ever handled … [and] obviously there are parallels, in terms of the song, with Eminem’s personal life and Rihanna’s personal life… But ultimately, if you really look at the video, it’s not about anybody in particular. … It’s a story specific to two characters I created.”
