Eminem used to throw the faggot word around more than the kids in junior high school whenever I would stroll on by in my B.U.M Equipment overalls, but I never totally got homophobic vibes from him. So I wasn’t really surprised to read that he thinks us gays should not have sex and fight over the cell phone bill just like the straights.
Do you regret having written so many songs that refer to women as “bitches” and “hos” who exist solely for your pleasure?
Anything I’ve ever said, I certainly was feeling at the time. But I think I’ve calmed down a bit. My overall look on things is a lot more mature than it used to be.
Even your mother sued you for defamation. Is she still in Detroit, where she raised you as a single mom?
I’m not sure, to be honest. It’d be very hard to repair that relationship.
You’ve been accused of writing gay-bashing lyrics in the past. Would you like to see gay marriage approved in Michigan, where you live?
I think if two people love each other, then what the hell? I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want.
Is this the new, 37-year-old tolerant you?
It’s the new tolerant me!
While I’m happy to learn that Eminem will be coming to my snowflake-themed wedding to Mah Boo in Iceland, I think he should stop supporting the plastic surgeon’s scalpel. Em is starting to get the Bambi look Calista Flockhart has been working lately. Thumper does not approve.
