Is there something just plain wrong about "Love the Way You Lie"?

Rihanna is featured on Eminem's "Love the Way You Lie" which, basically, is a song about domestic violence.

Now, I'm not surprised that Em is doing a rap about domestic violence (shocker there, right?), but I'm a little surprised that Rihanna got herself involved in the song, especially after being a victim of abuse by Chris Brown, but also because her portion of the song's lyrics sound like she still loves the guy.

Granted, I like the song, I really do, but I get this slight... uncomfortable/this-just-isn't-right feeling, too. Does anybody else feel this way about this song?

Is this something cathartic for her? Do you think it may encourage victims to stick it out with their abuser?
