The people at Eminem’s set at Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee on Friday night, probably anticipated the hallmarks of an Eminem set. Like rap growling performed under a brimmed black military hat, or possibly a mention of Detroit. What they didn’t expect was the sound of gunshots firing around them. According to Eminem, everyone can calm down, because he wasn’t traumatizing the audience with the sound of gunfire.
Eminem probably thought he’d gotten a free celebrity bearding from fellow hip-hop royalty Nicki Minaj this week when she told a fan that they were dating. But then someone in her organization spoiled his Memorial Day weekend by denying it to TMZ. Think of it this way, Marshall. It’s a lot harder to catch DL dick when everyone’s staring at you fake-dating a fellow celeb.
If you were to tell me that Nicki Minaj and Eminem were reportedly dating, I’d ask you what random rap name relationship generator you used to come up with that combination. But according to Nicki Minaj, who is probably trolling, she’s dating Eminem.
Forbes released their list of the five richest artists in hip-hop. Imaginatively titled “The Forbes Five,” we’re told that Hammer, Vanilla Ice, and Brian Austin Green have all the money in (and pretty much out of) hip-hop. I kid. It’s Dre, Diddy, Drake and Marshall Mathers. But the guy with ALL the riches in the world (meaning he’s married to universal majestrix messiah empress Beyonce) is Jay-Z. Mr. Shawn Carter has ALL the money. You could probably tell by his bar tab.
I hope you cleaned up in your office Coachella line-up pool. Whoever had their money on The Death Of Rock and Roll (the concept, not the band) is buying lunch all week! As anticipated, the headliners for the three day event are The Weeknd, Beyoncé and Eminem. For the first time ever, no Rock and Roll acts are headlining. Sorry Bono, I guess all those girly rockers just aren’t butch enough to make the cut.
Beyoncé’s big Coachella gig is a little less than five months away, and obviously she’s the only headliner the Beyhive cares about. But unless Coachella was planning on dragging out their hologram machine and projecting a dazzling array of digital Beyoncés onto the stage, they will need a few more headliners. According to Consequence of Sound, they’ve got them. Beyoncé will be reportedly headlining with Eminem and The Weeknd.
