Eminem may have performed a duet with Elton John at the Grammys, but he’s no ally to the gay and lesbian community. As someone who has used the word “fag,” as well as several other homophobic slurs in his music, it’s no surprise that his latest single, “We Made You,” takes stabs at some high-profile lesbians.
The song and accompanying video specifically mention Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson, with the lyrics:
And on Portia de Rossi and Ellen:
Does he really want us to answer that?
As someone who has always utilized pop culture and celebrity bashing to get attention, it’s not a surprise that he’s using celesbians in his song about women who aren’t interested in him. In an interview with MTV News, he talks about why he decided to “celebrity bash” in the song, and how he hopes it will get women to like him:
Something tells me this isn’t going to work out like he’s hoping. You can watch the whole video below, where he also mocks Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson and Star Trek.
If this is Eminem’s triumphant return to hip-hop, I personally think he’s still living in the past. His novelty act might have been interesting a few years back, but I’m not buying into his cheap attempts at offending his peers anymore — lesbians or otherwise. Are you?
