Eminem is back and he just can’t stop rapping about people in his new music. First it was Kim Kardashian Jessica Simpson, and Sarah Palin in “We Made You”. In his latest song, “Bagpipes from Baghdad” he sings about Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey and Cannon is NOT happy about it. Eminem and Carey did date briefly about 8 years ago and Cannon writes on his blog that Eminem “is still obsessed with my wife, the same female who wouldn’t let him get to second base from 8 years ago.” Then it really starts to get ugly when Cannon calls Eminem “racially insensitive” as well as an “old school Caucasian con man”. You really have to wonder what Eminem was thinking when he not only wrote the song but made it so everyone could hear it. It does seem to be a bit much and makes one think that he did step over the line and no wonder Nick Cannon is fuming over the song. There are definitely fighting words in that song. You be the judge, but it is very difficult to listen to and made me cringe. One might say take it with a grain of salt, it is Eminem after all, but it is pretty descriptive and to be quite honest pretty insulting. Sorry Mariah that out of nowhere you have to deal with this but lucky for you your hubby is willing to fight for your honor.
And speaking of back at it…Justin Timberlake was on SNL again this weekend and seriously the guy just needs to be regular, he is so funny. He did a follow up video with Andy Samberg to their “Dick in a Box” from last time for this show. This time a “lovely” video for Mother’s Day called “Motherlover”…oh sooo funny! The video also stars Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson as the mothers and one might just say disrespectful and inappropriate, but its SNL so it works just fine. Justin also does a skit where he jokes about Britney Spears and when they were dating. It was a funny show and Justin is just so talented. A not so funny performance happened for Amy Winehouse Friday night in St. Lucia, where she attempted to sing at the Jazz festival there. Oh Amy…what a train wreck…she forgot lyrics, lost her place and basically just stumbled through her song. You could almost feel her frustration as she threw up her arms at one point, and looked over at her dancers as if she had given up and couldn’t go on. Lucky for Amy (and the audience) there was a torrential storm that caused the rest of the show to be cancelled. Amy has been actually living in St. Lucia for the past several months and the concert was really her way to thank the locals for all their hospitality. Maybe just send them a thank you note next time.
Why does it seem that everywhere we look we see and hear from Kim Kardashian? Well the latest and greatest from the newly blond celeb is that she has revealed that step dad Bruce Jenner, has recently had a face lift. In fact this facelift was done to actually correct a partial facelift and a nose job that was botched that Bruce had done many years ago and had never been happy with the results. Now however he has had a doctor make the changes and fix the issues from the first time around and everyone, most especially Bruce, seems very happy with the results. In fact, Bruce who will turn 60 this year looks like he is in his 40’s. He looks great. The story actually was talked about and came up on the family’s reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Yes, it is hard to keep those things private with camera crews in your home all the time. You can check out the show on E! and if you just can’t get enough of the Kardashian sisters, Khloe and Kourtney are getting their own reality show and are heading down to Miami to open their new Dash Boutique. You can catch the new show in August and I am sure sister Kim will be showing up for some visits.
