Vidiscovery: #118 (National Day’s Long Weekend)

Commentary: Engaging celebrities to be a part of one’s music videos has always been an interesting feat, and never fails to catch one’s attention. It also helps to highlight the sociablity of people – especially so in Hollywood – and does help with building one’s status and reputation in the game of musical survival. Much so this week, with the release of Eminem and Rihanna’s collaboration video of “Love The Way You Lie”, starring Megan Fox (reason enough that men should watch already) and Dominic Monaghan. The biggest rising video this week also had the aid of cameos, and within the top 3, a bootylicious assassin works her way into the video’s peak position and in saving the lead singer.
