Is Eminem’s New Video Sorta Funny, Or Sorta Homophobic?

Sarah Palin. Jessica Simpson. Bret Michaels. Amy Winehouse. Is there any pop culture train wreck that Eminem isn’t going after in his new “I’M BACK BITCHES” video? (Yes, Lindsay Lohan, Sam Ronson, and Kim Kardashian are in there too.) For his single “We Made You,” Eminem returns to his roots: Attacking fame-hungry stars, which boosts his own celebrity. (Isn’t this Pink’s M.O. too?) Also on his target list: Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, bringing his attention paid on famous lesbian couples to … two.

What, no Rosie bashing?

When it comes to Lohan and Ronson, who reportedly split just before Em dropped this video, he raps: “Lindsay, please come back to seein’ men: Samantha’s a two, you’re practically a ten.”

As for Ellen and Portia: “Sorry, Portia, what’s Ellen DeGeneres have that I don’t, are you telling me tenderness?”

“There’s some celebrity bashing in it,” Eminem tells MTV News. “I wanna say it’s not necessarily intentional bashing in it; it’s not necessarily taking deliberate shots at people. … Yes, it is. What the f— am I talking about?”

Overall, it’s pretty tame given Eminem’s history. A history that includes, of course, throwing around the word “fag” with abandon.
