Apparently, the Qaddafi news isn’t enough to keep people talking. This morning, the blogs are questioning whether or not Rihanna’s latest video, “We Found Love,” is a knock off of Cee Lo’s “No One’s Gonna Love You.”
While both videos show a young, cute, couple involved in some crazy, crazy love, this “young couple gone bad” meme isn’t anything new. It’s a common theme in films, TV shows (UK Skins, as some of you pointed out) and music videos (Areosmith’s vids come to mind).
So while Rihanna (or even Cee Lo’s) vids may not be completely original, the scope of the video concept is so broad that it can’t be considered plagiarism. But, hey, that’s just me.
You be the judge.
Cee Lo’s “No One’s Gonna Love You”
Rihanna “We Found Love”
What’s your verdict, Clutchettes?
