Eminem Discusses Homophobic Lyrics With Anderson Cooper

Emcooper

Musician Eminem sat down with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes last night. And, since Cooper has become a champion against homophobia, the anchor asked Eminem to why he uses the word "faggot" so freely.

Eminem explains that he's always heard the word, and that it's not necessarily tied to homosexuality, "That word was thrown around so much, you know? Faggot was, like, it was thrown around constantly, to each other, like in battling, you know what I mean?" he asked, before insisting that he doesn't hate gay people. "I don't have any problem with nobody, you know what I mean. Like, I'm just whatever." Asked whether he needs to take responsibility for his words, Eminem puts the onus on parents to censor their children's lives.

As for criticism that's he a homophobe, brought up most often by the gay group GLAAD? Eminem plays the victim: "I felt like I was being attacked," he said. "I was being singled out. And I felt like, is it because of the color of my skin? Is it because that, you're paying more attention? Is it because there's certain rappers that do and say the same things that I'm saying. And I don't hear no one saying anything about that. I didn't just invent saying offensive things."

Watch: Eminem And Rihanna's Video For 'Love The Way You Lie'

Re
A great song and an even better music video with a powerful message about domestic violence. Rihanna, who was abused by ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009, decided to collaborate on the song because "it was something that needed to be done."

The Joseph Kahn-directed (He also did Kylie's "All The Lovers") video stars Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan. Fox generously donated her paycheck for the shoot to a women's abuse shelter.

Watch the video AFTER THE JUMP.

We should wait until we have equality to have our party. In the meantime we volunteer the same passion and air miles and participation and really channel that same participation into our fight for equality."

Eminem Comes Out in Support of Gay Marriage

Eminem

In a recent interview with Deborah Solomon in the NYT, rapper Eminem states his support for gay marriage:

NYT: You’ve been accused of writing gay-bashing lyrics in the past. Would you like to see gay marriage approved in Michigan, where you live? 

EMINEM: I think if two people love each other, then what the hell? I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want. 

NYT: Is this the new, 37-year-old tolerant you? 

EMINEM: It’s the new tolerant me!
