Former Porn Star Sasha Grey Explains Eminem’s ‘Space Bound’ Video Concept

The multiple AVN Awards-winner offers her take on the latest Mathers' music video Former Porn Star Sasha Grey Explains Eminem’s ‘Space Bound’ Video Concept

Eminem’s latest ‘Space Bound’ music video, which depicts him as a heart-broken, suicidal MC has been interpreted in a variety of ways by the viewers and critics. Since its Friday debut on iTunes, while some have linked the video’s visuals to Em’s troubled relationship with his ex-wife Kimberley Anne Scott, others have found it very similar to a video game’s story.

And now, Sasha Grey-the former porn queen of the adult industry, who also starred in the ‘Space Bound’ video opposite Eminem, has come forward to offer her understanding of the thought-provoking clip.

The video revolves around two versions of Eminem; one calm and thoughtful and the other one angry and stressed, with the epicenter of his feelings being his on-screen lover Grey. Speaking in a recent interview with MTV, the porn star-turned actress said, "You can read into it a few different ways, but I imagine one character is actually him, and the other is his subconscious.”

The clip reaches its climax, when the Real Slim Shady decides he has had enough of his love interest’s cheatings and after confronting her, he commits suicide and that concludes another violence-oriented Eminem video. It should be noted that "Love the Way You Lie," the rapper’s previous venture with Rihanna, which also portrayed a form of domestic violence, was criticized by the critics and same treatment was handed to Rihanna’s latest ‘Man Down’ clip, in which she plays a rape victim, who then murders her rapist in vengeance.

As expected, Grey has thrown her support behind the video, no matter what the critics may be thinking. About her own character, she said, "Em simply becomes company for her, and she mistakenly takes advantage of that. Before each take, Joseph and I would talk a lot about her motives and attitude. Her ultimate moment doesn't come until the end, so I had plenty of time to build the fear!"

A pessimistic sounding Grey further added, "I don't know if it necessarily has a thorough message, but I think it shows that even the strongest of love meets destruction at some point. Whether or not you come out of it together and whole is an entirely different question."

Here's the 'Space Bound' video for your pleasure:
