I had planned on seeing the movie. I was stuck on MTV most the day yesterday (raining outside, hot chocolate, fireplace, nothing else to do!), and watched a special on him. At some point prior to the special, I admired his ability to say things that others merely think about, or just mention in close company. In the special, he spoke candidly (as usual) about his album containing anti-gay, hate and bashing of other artists. He skimmed over his wife slashing her wrists after attending his concert in which he rapped about how much of a "explicit(s)(s)(s)" she was. He stated he hates it when people ask for his autograph because he isn't trying to entertain when he's out and about, he wants to be "normal" (Duh? ...I hate when celeb's say that. Choose a "normal" career! "Sign my autograph" comes with the territory! Get over it!).
Eminem (Marshall Mathers) went on for hours defending that he usually says something with the "clause" of "Don't take it too seriously", then turns around and says the same "
" with such conviction, changing his disclaimer to "I mean what I say."
My point, is, piss or get off the pot. If Em means he doesn't like gays, hates Moby, NSync, Brittney..."whoever", If he really thinks his ex-wife is such a *itch and a h*, and if he doesn't think signing an autograph for a fan is something you can do to show fan appreciation...then say it and mean it without the disclaimers. Don't go on an award show with Elton John to "prove a point". Say what you gotta say and stand by it.
Which leads to a question...When is enough "enough?" Why do the record exec's feel its OK for him to say whatever he feels like without responsibility to those he is verbally assaulting? Because he's making them $$$$$?
Ok. Sorry. That's another thread.
OK...The answer is I'll wait for the video. I don't think I want to support Em's plight in life.
