Lana Del Rey is the latest verbal victim of the real Slim Shady.
Lana Del Rey gets her clock cleaned, verbally, in a video intended to drum up attention for the new Shady Records compilation Shady XV.
In it, Eminem raps about punching Lana Del Rey in the face.
He then compares himself to Ray Rice.
You know, the alleged wife-beater of a few months ago who was suspended from the Ravens after a video was released of him decking his then-fiance in an elevator?
He says of Lana Del Rey, “But I may fight for gay rights, especially if they dyke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice/Play nice? Bitch I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance/’Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens.”
WARNING: There is serious language in this video. It is Eminem, after all.
That's just a little scary!
Besides, why Lana Del Rey? Doesn't he know about her interview in February of 2012, in which she sang his praises?
“It changed my life. I found out music could be intelligent. He wasn’t just rhyming for rhyme’s sake.”
In addition to that, Lana Del Rey added that she loves Frank Sinatra as well. Seems like a bit of a weird pairing, but she explained, “Eminem is the master of lyrics whereas Frank Sinatra is the master of vocals… I f—-ing love Eminem.”
So what gives, Em? Lana Del Rey has nothing but love for you!
Lana Del Rey has not responded to the video, but those defending her have already left the gates.
Britt Julious of The Guardian said of the attack, "Eminem’s uber-misogynistic lyric toward Lana del Rey is neither shocking nor surprising. For 15 years, he has used our culture’s feigned anger toward acts of misogyny, and our obsession with celebrity, as a shortcut to staying relevant."
What do you think of Eminem's attack on Lana Del Rey? Not a big deal or does he need to be stopped?
