When you hear the name Colin Farrell, and you’re like, Hmm, wow—seems like that guy hasn’t dated anyone in about four years? That’s because it’s on purpose, okay? »
I mean it! The new video for Rihanna's moody, mid-tempo, cursing salutation of her adopted country (a song co-written with X Ambassadors' Sam Harris) pulls the cheap yet wildly effective trick of montage juxtaposition, all in the palette of American strife and striving: a protestor throws a Molotov cocktail, a… »
