Seen above in the same kind of duck lips-throwing “shot from above” selfie that my aunties always post on Facebook, Adele added yet another trophy to her piles of trophies when she won an Emmy this past weekend for her TV special Adele: One Night Only. Winning an Emmy put Adele just one letter closer to EGOT and she only needs to win a Tony now. Adele also got a little company in The We Just Need A Tony To EGOT Club this weekend, because Eminem, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr also won Emmys and are also just a T away from EGOT. So prepare yourselves for an Adele, Eminem, Sir Paul, and Sir Ringo collab called 21 Mile At Abbey Road: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL!
And while celebrating reaching EGO status on Instagram, Adele’s fans noticed a customized game on her coffee table that they believe could be a clue that she married her boyfriend of more than a year, sports agent Rich Paul.
The NFL Warned Eminem And Dr. Dre Not To Get Political During The Super Bowl Halftime Show, Which They Did Anyway
The Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show (brought to you by Pepsi) happened last night, as expected, and it went off without a hitch. Dr. Dre was joined by Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, and Anderson .Paak. No Left Shark here. Except, if you’re the NFL, then you might think that was the biggest PR disaster of a Super Bowl Halftime Show this side of Justin Timberlake’s hand exposing a titty. According to sources, the NFL really didn’t want Dr. Dre to sing one very specific anti-police lyric in “Still D.R.E.“, and they really really didn’t want Eminem to take a knee, a la Colin Kaepernick. That screen shot above might have been the exact moment all those NFL politically-averse control freaks dropped their Pepsis in shock. Because as you can see, Eminem took that knee, and Dr. Dre closed the show with “Still D.R.E.“, with that anti-cop lyric right where it usually is.
This morning the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced their seventeen nominees for 2022’s Hall of Fame induction. The shortlist includes Dolly Parton, Eminem, Lionel Richie, Dionne Warwick, Pat Benatar, Duran Duran, and Kate Bush. Sounds like a fantastic hypothetical dinner party. If anybody got too big for their britches (Simon Le Bon), Dionne would tear them a new asshole. Then she’d order Kate Bush to ease the tension by dancing. And Kate totally would (Babooshka-stylez), because nobody says no to Dionne. Continue reading
Hypebeast says that the latest celebrity in the NFT game is Eminem. He’s new “owner” of a Bored Ape Yacht Club non-fungible-token and it only cost him a measly $425,000. Wow, I’m so glad that he has that much disposable income to use on a *check’s notes* picture of a monkey that isn’t physically his.
Eminem Surprised People At The Opening Of His New Detroit Restaurant, Mom’s Spaghetti (Yes, Mom’s Spaghetti)
Because performing Lose Yourself at the Oscars last year wasn’t random enough, Eminem opened a new “fast-casual” restaurant in his hometown of Detroit called Mom’s Spaghetti. Eminem obviously got the name from a lyric he wrote for Lose Yourself about barfing up mom’s spaghetti before a rap show. So it’s a great name because Eminem’s puke is definitely what you want to think about before diving into his sketti. The grand opening for Eminem’s restaurant happened last night and he surprised some fans by showing up. Eminem mostly stayed behind the serving window and probably because then he’d be able to duck and get out of there if one of his scarier stans, who was just sentenced to probation, showed up.
First Gen Z came for skinny jeans and we said… a lot actually. And then Gen Z came for side-parted hair and we… also said a damn lot. And now Gen Z is coming for 48-year-old Eminem because of his past lyrics and well, we’re all clutching our skinny jeans in one hand and caressing our precious side parts with the other while shrugging and saying, “Um, you know, you can have this one.” No, some people are coming to Eminem’s defense over the Gen Z army (okay, like one person on TikTok) trying to take him down, and that “some” includes Eminem himself.
