Rihanna 'Connected' With Eminem's Abusive Lyrics
The Umbrella star claims she was drawn to Love The Way You Lie...
RiRi admitted that she instantly understood the meaning behind the song after being involved in an abusive relationship with the Grammy Awards.
The Rude Boy hit maker told Access Hollywood: "It’s something that, you know, we’ve both experienced... on different sides, different ends of the table."
“He (Eminem) pretty much just broke down the cycle of domestic violence and it’s something that people don’t have a lot of insight on."
She added: “I knew if he sent me a record there must be something to it. It couldn’t just be, ‘Oh, Duh! She was in that relationship so we have to get her.’ The lyrics were so deep, so beautiful and intense. It’s something that I understood, something I connected with."
