Eminem’s “Fake Its” Love Song to Lance, Adam, and Clay

Aww, Eminem wanted to include the homosexuals in “Elevator,” his new song from the record Relapse: Refill. How nice of him. Here are the lyrics he dedicated to us: “Sorry Lance, Mr. Lambert, and Aiken / Ain’t gonna make it / They get so mad / When I call them both fake its.” Fake its!

Get it!

Mr. Slim Shady is nothing if not clever. Just like Britney’s “If U Seek Amy.” Dodging those radio censors, y’all.

      PS: One common theme that all of Em’s ex’s have said:
      that he really should be called Lil’ Em………which
      probably is the real cause of his anger managment issues
      He’s a big star with a little wand!!!

      I’m more concerned with Mr. Mather’s grammar. If he’s referring to three people, surely he should have chosen another word besides “both” to precede “fake its,” as “both” refers to two.

      He’s not in prison yet? One of us should just get him to assault us so we can have him locked up and he can familiarize himself with the joys of gay living. I volunteer as long as it’s not a pistol whip, I’m too pretty for that shit.

      it actually sounds like he says fay-gets, like hes just mispronouncing faggot and not even saying fake it. Ive listened to Em since i was i high school and one thing ive learned is you dont take eminem lyrics seriously. I dont think rappers should use in form of hate in their lyrics tho so this is still not cool because the young kids who dont know any better will think its cool to say faggot or fake it or whatever they wanna say because hes saying it. Theres also a pretty popular scientific journal out there written by a professor who analyzed eminem very critically and goes on to prove in her case why eminem is a repressed homosexual. try looking that up its pretty interesting.

      Eminem’s whole act as Slim Shady is just what it is, AN ACT! The whole image of Slim Shady is to portray a person who pisses off society. In laymans terms, he don’t give a fuck.

      So when you see him talking about your favorite celebrity, or talking about your sexuality. Just understand that ITS ALL A FUCKING ACT……

      Oh, Eminem…you’re sooooo clever. What’s next, enema-bag, holding your tongue on the playground and trying to say APPLE.

      Rap-crapping is to Music what paint-by-numbers is to Art.

      But, like his douche cult of followers might say in defense of him, he’s just being “as holistic” (get it – as holistic)in his approach to the organic soul of intestinal rap music as he can lyrically pinch out of his cerebral anal orifice.

      But is he really still relevant? Was he really ever? I know Elton John felt a little less like an old cocktail lounge Queen standing next to him on stage. But, was that enough to justify putting the gay sphincter-stamp of approval on his Alice the Goon face?

      It’s time to wipe his essence off the bottom of our shoes.

      The problem with Eminem (I mean, a major one) is that he will never get to be the gay man he has deep down always wanted to be. He simply does not have the talent or the guts (in case he had the former). It IS SO boringly easy and predictable to be where he is.

      Those that say not to condemn Eminem’s homophobia because it’s an “act” are dumb as hell. Technically, “Birth of a Nation” was fiction. Hell, it didn’t even have black actors and yet it incited racist hate. It doesn’t even matter if his intentions are good, it doesn’t change the effect.

      He’s no different than white power music. They get off of pissing people off with their racism and antisemitism, but it doesn’t mean you don’t call them out on it.

      I don’t care if this fucker is a repressed gay man or not. He’s still a bigot and a lame-ass one at that.

      The last time he got called out for his anti-gay lyrics his “defense” was that he was using “gay” to mean “stupid” and meant no offense to actual homosexuals. In the same interview he said he would NEVER use the word “nigger” in his lyrics because it was so offensive to black people. The guy is a fucking clueless moron who’s too busy rapping about wanting to shoot his ex-wife and his mother in the face to think through his own stupidity.

      Let’s get something “straight” here. The vast, vast majority of hateful homophobes are heterosexual. Too many gays fall into the trap of accusing every homophobe of being “a self-hating closet case” — they are not. Self-hating, no doubt — but gay, rarely.

      Most male homophobes are insecure about not measuring up to the “masculine identity” which they perceive is expected of them in today’s society. They allow themselves to be defined by others — usually fellow thugs. Many of them probably have small penises or other undesirable characteristic for which they are trying to compensate — but one thing is for certain, they need to bash Gays in order to feel like real men (which they’re not).

      Gay-bashing is the only way these insecure little cowards believe they can insulate themselves from being thought of as homosexual or “weak” (in their twisted manner of thinking). They feel that this is the only way to codified their heterosexual identity — certainly, satisfactory heterosexual experiences are not enough, probably because these sniveling ‘phobes are totally lacking in that department. In other words, homophobic males being “limp dicks” or having tiny weenies is far, far more likely than them being closet cases.

      Nevertheless, please quit “gaying up” the homophobes. If you do, you fall right into the smug heterosexuals delusion about them being the only kind of “normal”. Using “GAY” as the ultimate put-down by heteros is now employed by gays as a put-down too. Don’t you see the self-destructive irony in that?

      What we fight for is not “shit.” Let me just clarify that! We fight for what is right and we dont spread hate! Youre an idiot for comparing the two.

      Have you actually listened to the lyrics. Its full of hate, violence and dribble. Only idiots would support such rap music. If you want to listen to music with hate messages, then by all means carry on. I dont support such music because i have class.

      One thing im entitled to like yourself is my opinion. I stand by the fact that Eminem’s music is vile. Well, most of it. I just dont appreciate music with hate, violence and vulgar language. I am a young British las and one thing i cannot stand for is terrible grammar. He states 3 persons and refers to all three by saying “both.”

      Enough said!

      Yes I heard the lyrics and it sounds like your everyday typical rap song. He suceeded in getting your blood boiling which is the sole purpose of slim shady.

      Jacob says:
      “Only idiots would support such rap music.”

      Like you said in your reply, this is your opinion. I know people who can pass the bar and are fans of rap music.

      Jacob says:
      “What we fight for is not “shit”

      Now, this is when reading comprehension is key. (READ THE TEXT SLOWLY) Quake said: “The same shit you fight for, or log on this site for which is “Freedom”

      The key word was FREEDOM, which I refer to as shit because people seem to treat it like that when it does not concern them.

      “One thing i’m entitled to like yourself is my opinion”

      Exactly, you’re entitled to your opinion. But when your opinion becomes something like “Thats rap for you, It should be banned”. This is how people trip on their own values. Banning a certain genre of music will only push back the Gay rights movement a couple years. Cause if someone in government really took your advice and banned rap music. They can easily ban gay marriage, just like their doing today.

      Jacob says:
      “I am a young British lad and one thing i cannot stand for is terrible grammar.”

      Eminem isn’t the only person with grammar errors within his verses in rap. I can look at your comment and mark some errors myself, but then again this isn’t Mr. Robins English 101.

      To sum it all up, Freedom of speech is very sacred to our society. If I feel like spewing hate speech, I should have every right to do it. This is why we don’t stop religious zealots from standing on the corner with you’re going to hell signs.

      @ AlwaysGay; Bunny Snuggles

      Where did you get those statistics (that most gay bigots are heterosexuals)? Gay should read “people who feel attracted to the same-sex” and that’s it. Apart from that there are “homophobes” regardless of who they feel attracted to. We gain nothing from splitting the world into gays versus straights hating each other and then feeding this notion. Being gay is just one aspect of a person’s life. It doesn’t make a person good or bad. It doesn’t free anyone from homophobia. (And I’ve seen plenty of it in “both words – gay and straight”) If for the moment we have to identify ourselves with a fight for our rights and dignity, the “labeling” should stop there. Gays are people and people are different.

      I’m not saying that any heterosexual who hates gays is a closet case. I am referring solely to Eminem and his insistent pushes in addition to many other publicized acts and attitudes on his part allied to his own biography.

      Although you have a point when you mention “them allowing themselves to be defined by others”, then you pointless move on to talk about “tiny weenies” and “gaying up” people, again putting every “gay” in the same “mysterious” bag and inconsistently creating a fitting in system “defined by others”. But, most importantly, in your simplistic view, you ignore years of critical psychology and psychoanalysis concepts, which I quote here for you:

      Projection bias is the unconscious act of denial of a person’s own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, such as to the weather, the government, a tool, or to other people. Thus, it involves imagining or projecting that others have the same feelings or motives, rather than what they really think.

      Projection is considered one of the most profound and subtle of human psychological processes, a fundamental mechanism by which we keep ourselves uninformed about ourselves, a defense mechanism that occurs when a person’s own unacceptable or threatening feelings are repressed and then attributed to someone else. An example of this behavior might be blaming another for self failure. The mind may avoid the discomfort of consciously admitting personal faults by keeping those feelings unconscious, and redirect their libidinal satisfaction by attaching, or “projecting,” those same faults onto another.

      Unfortunately, human beings have done great harm laboring under the delusions of projection. This is especially true for historical cases of projection between ethnic or cultural groups, for example in Apartheid or Nazism.

      M&M gay-bashing again? (Yawn) Adding “both” to a sentence involving three subjects was rather hilarious, though. I’ll bet it didn’t even work rhythmically.

      I appreciate your disgust at the filth which some people classify as music. Personally, I find Marshall Mathers to be absurdly overrated, little more than a washed up has-been, like Ann Coulter, who has to piss off the usual segments of society in order to sell more of their vain attempts at being witty.

      Still, I take issue with some of your suggestions here. I am vehemently opposed to censorship as this is what kills democratic systems and allows tyranny to thrive. This, and the same rationales and tools for censoring hate-filled music can be and has been used to oppress political groups, civil rights movements, and minorities like us.

      I don’t know how they do things in Britain, but here in America we have a constitutional right to Freedom of Speech, which has fortunately often been interpreted by our Supreme Court to be even more permissive than 18th-century sensibilities would have permitted. And yes, such a freedom protects little narcissistic scumbags like M&M in his endeavor to make $$$ from sensationalist drivel.

      I like the approach of valuing choice. Punks like Eminem have the choice to record and sell garbage, and we have a choice whether or not to listen to or purchase it. And if you have better ideas than he, which I have little doubt that you would, then it is for you to present them, challenge him and let the best ideas win. But to ban? Absolutely not.
