Once Rihanna actually decides to get out of bed, she’s not only a great pop star, but one with a message to get out, which she does rather succinctly with her latest music video for “Man Down”. Shot in Jamaica with Anthony Mandler (who also directed “Only Girl’), the song’s reggae-influenced beat belies the vid’s shocking visuals: RiRi guns a man down (explains the title…) after the two argue, with the clip telling the whole story in reverse. It ain’t sexy, but for a woman with her history, it’s a definitive statement on the Barbadian beauty’s stance on domestic abuse. How’s that for staying resolute, Twitter? Check out the video above.
