Eminem & Rihanna Film "The Monster" Video

Eminem and Rihanna film "The Monster" video directed by Rich Lee.

Eminem and Rihanna shot a video for their "The Monster" collaboration off The Marshall Mathers LP 2

Eminem revealed the news via Instagram, updating his account with two images from the set of the video. 

In one image, Eminem sits beside Rihanna, with both artists wearing all black. In another image, Eminem revealed that the video's director is Rich Lee.

Rich Lee has been the director of other Eminem videos, including "Not Afraid" and the clip for the Bad Meets Evil single "Lighters." Lee also directed the Eminem-assisted "My Life" video for 50 Cent, which also features Adam Levine. Beyond this, Lee has also directed videos for The Black Eyed Peas and Diddy. 

Rihanna spoke about working with Eminem during a January interview with Complex.

"The moment I worked with him on 'Love the Way You Lie,' I wanted to work with him again, and we did 'Love the Way You Lie Part 2,'" Rihanna said. "And then I wanted to work with him again. I just love working with Eminem. He’s just one of my favorite rappers, and his lyrics—he’s a true poet, and I enjoy that about him. For this song, I needed someone with not only his skill, but his personality. And I needed someone who really understands the perspective and the metaphor in the song of going numb and being numb to everything around and to say, 'Fuck you.' Eminem is definitely the perfect guy for that."

Earlier this month, Eminem spoke about Rihanna's work on "The Monster."

"The perception of the record, what it's saying, I thought it would be a good idea to have her on it because I think people look at us like we're both a little nuts," Eminem said during an interview with SiriusXM radio station Shade 45. "That's one of the things that I was telling her in making the record: I think that people look at us a little crazy."

I think Kanye is officially a sellout esp with those confederate flag jackets and bringing a white jesus on stage. Nigga you lost. fuck off.

  • YMCMBoyyyyy

    Get Drizzy's album instead of this crap. Fuck this talentless asshole and his gay looking chin.

  • YMCMBoyyyyy

    Fuck Eminem,m he's a poser. Did you know he wanted to be a country star originally until record execs pressured him to rap so they'd have a white poster boy? Too bad he sucks at country and at rap.

  • YMCMBoyyyyy

    This only proves he's trying to stay relevant if he's collaborating with pop stars like RiRi. Oh wait Em is a popstar so it makes sense. He can't even sing like Drake. Drake can sing AND rap, not many people can do that. He doesn't need gay features like women.

      Eminem already replied to you on Rap God. ""Oh, he's too mainstream!" Well that's what they do when they get jealous, they confuse it "It's not hip-hop, it's pop!" Cause I found a hella way to fuse it with rock, shock-rap with Doc, throw on "Lose Yourself" and make 'em lose it." Case closed.

      Your trolling is hilarious. You are a posterboy for trolling. I mean seriously; young teen living with mom taking his little life frustrations out on hip hop dx; throwing in the word "gay" and suchlike and basically completely spouting nonsense, drivel, etc. etc. You are hilarious, please keep it coming! It's fascinating, like watching a car crash in slow motion.

    songs that are hard to listen to on mmlp2: 1. survival 2. legacy 3. asshole 4. stronger than I was 5. monster other than these songs, the rest of the album, including the deluxe edition are great, infact those 5 songs I listed should be replaced with the deluxe tracks to make the album better

    Please, allow me to stand up.

  • Really Real Eminem

    Just forget about monster and listen to the rest of the album. At least I get to bang about Rihanna.

  • Real (Real) Eminem

    Fuck all you fake Eminems,

  • (Real) Eminem

    Don't listen to him, I am the real Marshall Mathers. The reason why i did this is because I want to outsell the competition. See the point is, I dont give a fuck about the real hip hop fans. Just let me be a pop star. I want to make cash. Greetz, Marshall

  • Eminem

    I just want to apologize to my fans for Monster. Interscope made me do that record. Think of it like Atlatnic forcing Fiasco to so show goes on. Hopefully the rest of the album satisified you.
