Rihanna: Diamonds Meaning
Song Released: 2012
Shine bright like a diamond
Find light in the beautiful sea
I choose to be happy
You and I, you and I
We’re like diamonds in the sky
You’re a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I’m...

I think many are wrong when interpreting this song as just a drug related song. I see this song as totally different meaning. I believe it is about universal energy bringing two people together. One person is infatuated with another...feeling instant attraction but the other person is lifeless, depressed and does not know the other one is there yet. There is a part in her video where the horse comes to another horse laying lifeless on the ground and the other once presence and energy brings the other horse to life again. Beautiful scene! So it is not just about drugs and alcohol; it is more about two people coming together and becoming inseparable with the help of "universe". And going beyond this life even after it ends here. "We are beautiful like diamonds in the sky". Sia wrote the song and her songs always have positive messages of resurrection and "second chances". This is more of a love song of one helping the other come to life and happiness together.

It is not about satan or Chris Brown, Rihanna didn't write this song, Sia did.

This song is about her relationship with Chris Brown. This is not the first time she has referred to herself and Brown as "diamonds" as she did so in the Calvin Harris song We Found Love when she referred to them as "yellow diamonds in the light", another song obviously about Brown. Rihanna is telling Chris to shine bright in his fame. Her emotions are as deep as the sea, and after all the pain she has through with him she still found her light and chooses to be happy by keeping a friendly relationship with Chris Brown despite all the strong opinions the media voices about her decision to remain in contact with him. Her referring to him as a "vision of ecstasy" is a play on the words as it is no secret she and Brown partook in the recreational use of the drug together as was seen in her video for We Found Love. When he holds her she feels more alive and they both are shining like diamonds or stars in the sky. She knew right away that they would connect and that this connection would be deeper than any love she has ever felt. She wants them to just go on loving each other tonight and to be on the same page with that love, eye to eye, in the way they feel and make love with each other. Moonshine and Molly are drugs. Moonshine is a type of very strong liquor that is homemade in the South and Molly is a street-name for the drug ecstasy. They are doing these drugs together and dancing, arms up with palms in the sky, to the universe. Under the influence of these drugs they feel as though they are stronger and better than when on their own, without drugs or each other so she wants them to continue to do what it takes to shine like a star, or, in Rihanna's and Chris' case, a superstar on the planet. Superstars on the planet eventually die and are forgotten, they will never be as immortal as a shooting star in the sky, as Rihanna hopes. That's just my thoughts.

Ok so you guys probably know this already but if you are like me and very confused on whos song is whos and went here to find out but it only made you more confused then well, im here to answer that. Here, i copy and pasted this from wiki and kinda editied it so i wont get copywrited.
Diamond is a song recorded by Rihanna for her seventh studio album Unapologetic. It was written by Sia with her producers, Benny Blanco and StarGate.
idk if thats confusing or not but it basically means rihanna sang the song and sia wrote it with her producers or so i assume. (i do not know if this is correct or not so dont hate on me,also, you can correct me if you want but I really wont care because im just trying to help sooo :/ )

Please, you just have to know that this song Diamond is deep and spiritual so let's think about it from the Bible perspective. Lucifer is referred to as light, and Diamond can also represent something that is shining because the Bible made us understand that Lucifer is the morning star. When you look closely at the video, she looks scared and running away from the light coming after her and at some point, she stopped and looking up in the sky. I also noticed towards the end of the video, she has tears in her eyes and also she was seen in the sea. This song Diamond has deep meaning and is only the spiritually-minded individuals who can decode the meaning of this song.

yo sorry, me i again..
the beauty is, and irony is lol. you are of course all correct. in my opinion. see..its about all of these things...
uh do i think tons of songs have an "illuminati" agenda..nope. do some? well, lets just call it occult or spiritualism .. yes. without question. more sinister than your standard jeeezuz anything...certainly not.
i would say yes, it probably is kabbalah focused.. i dont know Sia, or much about her, none of my biz really..im just here to double check the lyrics cuz love it, and was for ME, about Lucifer, satan, that guy..and i LOVE IT AND HAIL SATAN! he is the light and yes, great tune. slappin mix
btw, i hardly ever have this impression on pop songs. cuz im not insane like youtube freasks blabla dont core if the illumanit is hidingjkf in my dollar bills or some crap.
cuz had NOTHING TO DO with ME or Im willing bet you.. to the person that above, who is just aching to prove to you that this song has a satanic agenda.. YES ok , but guess what peaches..ANY SONG can, if you want it to. that the beauty im talking about folks... so, sure u convinced me..in fact, i liked the song, AND you overwhelming proved to me it, you said look it up! so i did. and ya know what? i rather liked what i saw! thank you! you have converted me from an evangelical dip s hit to using my own brain today. feels good. also my phone wont stop ringing with recruits.. we burned down 763 churches just for you and started a satanic ufo suicide cult. thanks im gonna name the mothership in your honor..
this one...umm yeah.. are you stupid???? sorry
is it about chris brown? sure? satan? sure cuz satan is everything around us, he is the light. do you have light in your heart? i do. why not eat that fruit?
well mostly not this though lol
nice try, but hey thats free thinking so youre already on a left path
You are all wrong, The song represents something she has seen in a vision. It is the God of living waters, He has diamonds of light that radiate throughout his body. He is revealing himself to her, He has looked through the spectum of time and opened her eyes to truth. He is the creator and the one who planted the seed of life. He is the one that revealith a new King, bla bla trust me nobody cares but im actually glad you see something for what you want cool...
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

I think to be in that relationship to between those love to the song but it’s so much fun I got a relationship with a guy on my chat with strangers, I asked him out to go on a date. Then we can be boyfriend and girlfriend. It’s so sweet. I love that song to make this deal to me. But I’ve always had my boyfriend his name is. Lucas he’s on my chatting on my website he’s so cute and sweet. I love him he’s a sweet guy.

This song is clearly spiritual. People shouldn’t take everything in a song as literal like comments that it is about chris brown. Songs are the most powerful way of hiding secret meanings for people that are READY to hear them. Rihanna is spiritual by nature and you will be surprised how many big hitters on the scene are spiritual. Spirituality gives you a wider view of reality and this awareness allows them to become so successful . Please people stop seeing music as something that they dislike or have experienced in this material world.

Devotion is handled in music as a deeper love than the mere fancy; when somebody sings about their devotion, you know it got serious.

For me i think that the song is devilish because the meaning of ecstasy is drugs

Ok people... Let me take a stab at this- I just lost the love of my life of 15yrs and this song is the very story of us... This of course is just my interpretation; it appears and begins by letting us know their relationship is volatile and all the furnishings are broken and shes running from her lover in the car but when she sees the aurora she realizes hes the best thing for her and how much he meant to her when the furnishings begin piecing back together and the same when it seems hes carrying her through the desert- but in her mistake or BOTH their mistake rather that they indeed seperate its almost too late- as we come to the horse scene where Im guessing its HER that happens upon him laying down almost all but spent and in his deepest depth of depression he needs her as much as she needs him that she finds him and asks his forgiveness-hence the nedging after the horse gets up and caresses her as in love and forgiveness just glad shes back in his life and they run along finally together stronger than ever.... Where the hands seperate at the end might suggest that sometimes thats what it takes for us to realize exactly how much we need the other in our life. Although I have not been as lucky its what goes through my mind everytime I hear the song. Keep in mind people rhianna DID NOT write the song so I dont see anywhere it could suggest brown. For the ultimate true meaning wed have to ask the songwriter. Until someone does.... Its just interpretation.
