Eminem is creating controversy yet again, but what else is new. This is his M.O. But this time he has the gay rights community up in arms over some new songs that he just recently released to promote the re-release of his latest album called Relapse: Refill.
The song, ‘Elevator’ calls out three singers; former ‘NSYNC member Lance Bass, and American Idol’s Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert. And all three are gay.
In the song, Em rhymes, “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—ing voices in my head, I can’t take it/ Someone shut that f—ing baby up, before I shake it.”
“Eminem cleverly avoids using the word ‘f*****” in his new song ‘Elevator’ when referring to Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken, replacing it with the words ‘fake it’s,” states Towleroad.com, a site which refers to itself as “More than gay news for more gay men.”
Adam Lambert responded via his Twitter account, saying, “Wow, Eminem mentioned me in a song?! I must be doing something right!? Even if he used the ‘F word,’ whatever,” which he followed with, “Oh, he says ‘fake it.’ My bad.”
The second song making its rounds is “Buffalo Bill,” which is the villain FBI agents are after in the classic “Silence of the Lambs” film.
On the track, Eminem dissects what’s going on in the mind of the psychotic film character, via Slim Shady, as he spits about cutting and severing limbs, and skinning women.
