Diamonds - Rihanna


The Experience
Even though she's not sure what love is, Rihanna wants it... and suffers as she sees love slipping through her fingers little by little. Whatever love is, it's worth it. Worth fighting for, worth hoping for, worth dreaming about...


The Video
The music video has a lot of eye candy - there are a lot of great shots, but not much else. However, the biggest surprise is an unsettling drug concept. The video opens and closes with Rihanna floating in the ocean, as if she were on a drug-induced high. She also rolls and smokes a joint containing the diamonds that symbolize love. 

My Take
Rihanna is absolutely right when she says that love is hard - hands slowly but surely slipping apart portray that very well in the music video. But she still dreams and hopes... and fights to hold on. That's a huge point in her favor in a world where love is often just a commodity.

Ask YourselfWhy is love special? Is it just another drug?

LYRICS: 

Shine bright like a diamond 

Shine bright like a diamond 



Find light in the beautiful sea 
I choose to be happy 
You and I, you and I 
We're like diamonds in the sky 

You're a shooting star I see 
A vision of ecstasy 
When you hold me, I'm alive 
We're like diamonds in the sky 

I knew that we'd become one right away 
Oh, right away 
At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays 
I saw the life inside your eyes 

So shine bright, tonight you and I 
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky 
Eye to eye, so alive 
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky 

Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 
Shining bright like a diamond 
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky 

Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 
Shining bright like a diamond 
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky 

Palms rise to the universe 
As we moonshine and molly 
Feel the warmth, we'll never die 
We're like diamonds in the sky 

You're a shooting star I see 
A vision of ecstasy 
When you hold me, I'm alive 
We're like diamonds in the sky 

At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays 
I saw the life inside your eyes 

So shine bright, tonight you and I 
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky 
Eye to eye, so alive 
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky 

Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 
Shining bright like a diamond 
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky 

Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 
Shining bright like a diamond 
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky 

Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 

So shine bright, tonight you and I 
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky 
Eye to eye, so alive 
We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky 

Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond 
Shine bright like a diamond
