  1. What is this Eminem album? If he's doing what these articles say he's doing, I am amazed that he is so completely out of step with the times. Unless it is a truly perverse attempt at publicity; in that case he's lost it like the republic*nts… Loser moment. Possibly end of career.

  2. Isn't Eminem getting a little old for the bad boy wigger rapper routine?

  3. I am truly sick of boycotts and petitions. At this point, I wish the media would just report the facts and tell people "Make your own decisions." That way we can decide for ourselves if we want to stop buying their product without it being some big moral crusade. That tends to be counterproductive most of the time.

    If they're not in a position to directly effect the rights of an individual, then just stop obsessing over it. People are going to have their opinions.

  4. WOW! Eminem is a homophobe, who'd a thunk it. I haven't heard anything this shocking since someone told me Nathan Lane might be gay.

  5. Don't exploit Eastwood. That movie would be horrible for his career.
    You made it out pretty unscathed today Andy. You should read the national press. And this is a gay site???

  6. I'm proud to be insulted by Eminem. He does it best. The world is becoming too delicate--and that will be its' downfall.

  7. Let's think less about Eminem and more about real threats to gay freedom. Dough faced fags traveling to Russia, claiming it's helping humanity, and being paid an undisclosed sum to judge a beauty pageant? As Sinead used to say, "FIGHT THE REAL EMEMY!"

  8. "As Sinead used to say"

    That's your problem right there, GB.

    There is one enemy. Eminem and Putin are on the same team, regarding us.

  9. "'I just think it’s inappropriate to be promoting any sexual relationship in an elementary school, whether it’s heterosexual or homosexual,' Elmer said."

    So I'm guessing that Rep. Elmer took off his wedding ring and refused to speak to his wife for the rest of the evening, lest he be guilding of promoting a sexual relationiship.

  10. Yeah. And I'm sure that elementary school refuses to acknowledge Valentine's Day and that the library doesn't have any books with Fairy Tales where a beautiful princess marries a handsome prince.

    Skidmark.

  11. Guess who is financing the homophobic Eminem? Interscope Records. This is Lady Gaga's label, isn't it? Guess who owns Interscope? Jimmy Iovine, alleged supporter of the Democrats.

  12. What if Eminem decides to sing that very song...live and on NBC? Perhaps I'm giving too much credit to the audience, but I think it would be interesting to see and hear him booed off the SNL stage. There's absolutely no excuse for those lyrics.

  13. The word is "civilian" not "civilion."
