VIDEO FAB: Rihanna Gets Vulnerable In The Bathtub For "Stay"

Rihanna just released her simply yet vulnerable video for her emotional ballad "Stay."  Check out the full video inside...

In the official Sophie Muller-directed visuals above, Rih Rih strips down and dips into her bathtub to wash away the pain of wanting someone to stay by her side. 

Rihanna told Ryan Seacrest on last night's GRAMMY red carpet about the Mikky Ekko-written track off her Unapologetic album:

"I pretty much stay put in a bathtub. We shot it really close, really tight.  Mikky Ekko is in the video.  He's the one who wrote the song. It's a very emotional song and it's personal. It's almost like telling a story."
 

She even snapped a pic with Mikky backstage at last night's show after their performance:

The above is the uncut 1-take version of "Stay".

I love everything about this

I love everything about this video!!! I think it was entirely appropriate for the song!! Apart of me wishes at the end, she either cried more or submerged her head fully in the water but i'm satisfied with the this... It's moving & different & for some weird reason I feel her pain, whoever she wants to "stay" I get how important it is for them to do so. Ms.Dolyn of www.thedolynproject.com

The video is very personal just like the song and I think it fits it very well. I loved her performance on the Grammy's as well. It was so unexpected and so unlike her but perfect.
