The new video for Lil Wayne’s Auto-Tune lament “How To Love” pulls off something impressive: In its five minutes, it packs in about twice the hysterical narrative melodrama that you’d see in the average CMT video. An aborted abortion! Spousal abuse! Child abuse! A self-loathing stripping sequence! An HIV diagnosis! Forced dialog! Tearful breakdowns! An impossibly lame false ending! Seriously, Martina McBride watched this shit and was like, “Jesus, Wayne, this is a bit much.”
Director Chris Robinson is usually way more dependable (he did “Bad Boy For Life!”), but if this is what it takes for Tha Carter IV to get a release, then whatever. Watch it below.
