You know that scene in The Bodyguard? It was like that the whole time.
I’ve been all about R&B this year. Don’t know why it took so long. I guess it was easier to complain about all the things that were wrong with indie rock. Now when I look back, I feel like I really didn’t appreciate all the great stuff that happened when I was growing up because it wasn’t “underground” enough. Wish I’d understood the difference between mainstream crap and really great, engaging art back then.
Having said this, this is a pretty lackluster Rihanna song, but it’s one of just two videos from the Borgata show last weekend. Funny since you couldn’t look at the stage without seeing hundreds of cameras pointed directly at her. Like I said, it was like that scene in The Bodyguard from start to finish.
