Snoop Lion and Miley Cyrus explore the stages of love in their “Ashtrays And Heartbreaks” lyric video.
The funny thing about falling in love is that it can happen so quickly that you hardly have time to process (let alone appreciate) it. The lyric video for Snoop Lion’s “Ashtrays And Heartbreaks” featuring Miley Cyrus (from Snoop’s recently released Reincarnated) is a perfect illustration of this: As the recently turned Rastafari’s words float by, so do the good and bad times between a young, amorous couple. Love can be SO poetic.
Watch Snoop Lion featuring Miley Cyrus’ “Ashtrays And Heartbreaks” lyric video after the jump.
Tinted in Rastafarian red, gold, and green, “Ashtrays And Heartbreaks” depicts the ghosts of two young lovers kissing, fighting, and everything in between while the recent “RapFix Live” guest’s breezy lyrics blow by (along with the wisps of something smoking in an ashtray). Hmm, that’s almost like a metaphor or something… you know, with love being ephemeral and coming and going in a snap. It’s also possible that we’re just reading too far into it — like a trail of cryptic not-quite-boyfriend/girlfriend text messages. That, or we should stop scrolling through eHarmony profiles at work. Either one.
