Video: Lykke Li - "Sadness Is A Blessing"

I'm not gonna lie, I think Lykke Li is kinda sexy.  She's sexy in that strong-willed-but-still-cute-and-innocent way.  If you read any of her interviews, it's easy to see that she is a strong and independent woman.  If you watch any of her live performances, you'll notice she has the on-stage presence of a big, male rapper dude rather than a small, Swedish girl.  In her music, she reveals every aspect of her personality: her romantic passion, her lust, her broken heart, her strength, her fury.  And when you look at those big, brown eyes, it's like you can see all of that at once too; and that's sexy.

Li's newest video for the song "Sadness Is A Blessing", is a perfect example of what I'm talking about.  The song, off her latest album, Wounded Rhymes, is one of her most emotionally bare, and she really bares her emotions all over this video.  She expresses so much through those wild dance moves while people look on or try and stop her.  It all seems really personal, like you feel guilty for watching it.  But, she wants you to.

The video is directed really well, and it also stars Stellan Skarsgard (you know that guy from Good Will Hunting who fights with Robin Williams a lot).  I read in a Rolling Stone article that Li's been told by three different psychics that she was born with a broken heart.  This song kind of makes a lot of sense after hearing that.  Watch the video below.
