Rick Brantley: Hurt People (Music Video)
I don't know about ya'll, but I spend roughly half of my time trying to conceal all emotion from the outside world. The end result is a facial contortion somewhere between resting bitch face and general confusion, but today... thanks to the supremely talented Rick Brantley and his brand new video for "Hurt People," I kind of sort of want the universe to know exactly how I feel because he makes it look so goddamn beautiful.
In this video, Brantley offers up maximum realness. Think Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U" or hell, the very best moments from Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" video where she's facing the camera dead on crying and shit. Then, scale it back until it's just total soul-baring in its purest form. That's where Rick Brantley is living in this video. There are these special and revealing moments that might tempt you to look away from your screen because honest things are scary. Don't. Keep watching, breathe into it and live off the magical fumes of complete candor for the rest of your day.
