Rihanna Gets Naked (Again) for ‘Stay’ [VIDEO]
For once, Rihanna is naked for a reason.
In her video for ‘Stay,’ Rihanna is, as usual, unclothed, but this time it’s purposeful: she’s taking a bath. And she’s darting her eyes around. And she’s biting her lip occasionally.
Guys, Rihanna is like, deep in thought. Apparently deep in thought about the Kristen Stewart school of acting. (They already have the same super pretty eye color and talent level, so why not?)
‘Stay’ is the ballad she performed at the 2013 Grammys, one of her first televised performances of a song where it appears she actually sang live instead of just gyrating about.
The track is a relatively moving duet with songwriter Mikky Ekko, and though Rihanna didn’t pen it, it clearly holds as much meaning to her as the “420” she references all the time.
A lyrical sampling: “Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving / ‘Cause when you never see the light it’s hard to know which one of us is caving / Not really sure how to feel about it / Something in the way you move / Makes me feel like I can’t live without you / And it takes me all the way / I want you to stay.”
Rih weeps at the conclusion of the clip, and so do we when we remember that she’s still dating Chris Brown. Woman, you can do better.
