“S&M,” Rihanna

Misunderstood Hit Songs

Def Jam Recordings

The amount of songs we assume are about love, heartbreak, or sex that are actually just about the media being horrible low-key shows how celebrities really aren’t just like us at all. Rihanna meant for “S&M” and its accompanying video to be a tongue-in-cheek look at how stars have a love-hate relationship with the media, their lack of privacy, and the pain it can bring, but she told Vogue that people just wanted to see sex, so they let the actual meaning go right over their heads. She still thinks it’s the obvious interpretation, but maybe us plebs just can’t relate.
