Rapper Eminem Resorts to Anti-Gay Lyrics

Rapper Eminem cleverly avoids using the word "faggots" in his new song "Elevator" when referring to Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken, replacing it with the words "fake it's":

"Eminem Sorry Lance, Mr. Lambert and Aiken ain't gonna make it
They get so mad, when I call them both fake it's
All these f@#king voices in my head I can't take it
Someone shut that f@#king baby up, 'for I shake it
You're standing adjacent to Jason's last slut, they're facing
Together makes 'em, a f@#king bad combination
I lashed at the doctor in my last operation
Shoved the weiner snitzel up his ass, hopped away some-
body please stop the patient, get the cops to mase him"

Phonetically, it sounds just like "faggots" and considering his anti-gay troubles in the past, there is no doubt in most peoples minds what the intention was, and that's to stir publicity and pr drama at the expense of the gay community.

These lyrics peretrate hatred, fear and violence against sexual minorities and cannot be tolerated!

Eminem can be contacted via Twitter and Myspace

You are a total moron.

You've completely missed the point of the intention.

The intention is purely a face-value one. You say he avoids it, no that IS the intention.

A new way to create a word using an accent and two other words. It's wordplay.

And the reason he is doing it with the word faggot isn't to perptrate hate ffs it's to play the perception idiots who don't get his music have of him.

He was never homophobic and nothing he ever said ever geniunely was. What happened was moronic gay people listened to other gay people calling him homophobic and just accepted it. Half of them didn't even listen to his music to decide for themselves.

You and they, totally do get the irony or character play in Eminem's music.

Maybe you should be more like an intelligent gay man like Elton John, since he very much gets it. Cretin.

Those that shout hate the loudest are the biggest closet cases. He should just come out.

Seriously? You are taking exception to a rapper saying something we say to each other everyday? Don't get me wrong - I believe in reclaiming the power of a word like faggot. But if we are going to toss it around, both in humor and - let's be honest - as an insult to each other, we cannot be surprised when others also use it the same way.

I like his music - but I dismiss his public persona as a construct of the rap genre. I have no clue if the real Marshall Mathers is a homophobe or not - and frankly, I don't care.

Wow... all the commenters today are Missing The Point. Eminem spouts hate speech? It's like saying water is still wet. But that doesn't make it ok. And Anon 4:06, unless Eminem holds a press conference that says "Why no, I have no problem with women or gay people, and here are several character references and giant donations I have made to women's and LGBT charitable organizations", then yes, judging from the lyrics of his songs- lots of his songs, he is indeed a misogynist bigot with BIG anger issues. I've listened to a lot of his music. Whether he means to be ironic or not, he's perpetuating a lot of shitty attitudes about gay people. And yes, we CAN take exception to non-gay people using the word "fag" as an insult. A gay man has the right to use the word, to try to reclaim it if he wishes. A straight person does not, because they don't experience that kind of discrimination.
Seriously, just because someone criticizes an artist whose music you like, doesn't make them wrong.
