Rihanna celebrated her best friend Melissa Ford’s birthday this weekend. There was a dinner. And Drake was there too. Good sign? They’re comfortable together in their own circles. You want your lover to be ok with your homies, right? I don’t know if that used to matter to Rihanna. Full Story
Since many of you have asked, here are my thoughts on Eminem’s Saturday Night Live performance. His rep insists he was not lip-synching. Rather, he “doubles his vocals live. Rhymes over a vocal track." I dunno man, that’s pretty weak.
Like, if you’re out hustling a new album and one of those songs on that album is about you being a RAP GOD, I don’t want to hear excuses about rapping over a vocal track. Can you go live or can you not go live? If you can’t go live, don’t call yourself a Rap God. Call yourself Rap Sophomore. Call yourself Rap Middle Management. Call yourself Rap Assistant God. But a Rap God, as far as I’m concerned, isn’t using a vocal track when Miley f-cking Cyrus didn’t need one, Jesus. Read Full Intro
Eminem’s video for Survival is out today. The song was apparently released for Call Of Duty: Ghosts but I’m not a gamer so what I’m seeing here is more Banksy than anything to do with the game. It’s not my favourite Eminem track, no, but I don’t have to love the song to love the video. Full Story
Eminem was interviewed on ESPN during a college football game this weekend and everyone's talking about how he acted weird and loopy because he wasn't super articulate and paused a few times. So when I got home last night I was all prepared for some John Stamos in Australia level mess. Ready to see a total meltdown. Full Story
Eminem keeps a super super SUPER low profile. We don't see him much. And since he doesn't tour anymore, until he finds a way to stay clean while touring, months and months can go by without anything from and about Eminem. Or you just have to pay him enough. Eminem performed the other night in New York for G-Shock's 30th Anniversary event. Full Story
God, it’s been 10 years. Where did that go? I wonder though, in this environment, if 8 Mile would even get made now. 8 Mile took everyone by surprise. Come on, admit it. 8 Mile was a lot better than you thought it would be. 8 Mile is GREAT. 8 Mile is still watchable, over and over and over again. Full Story
Eminem performed at V Fest the other day. Rumour has it he was paid 2 million pounds for it. (Source) And Rihanna, who joined him on stage, apparently a million pounds. They performed Love The Way You Lie. The video is below. Eminem has said, post recovery, that he cannot tour because he doesn’t know how to tour sober. Full Story
Written by Sarah I have a debate going with my friend T about “meeting” a person versus “seeing” a person. After hearing my Ryan Gosling story, she was like, “Why didn’t you tell me you met Ryan Gosling?” And I was like, “Because there’s no way to get that into a conversation without it being a humble-brag, and also, I didn’t actually meet him. Full Story
Mission: Impossible 4 or, more accurately, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (What a Dumb Title), there’s a new trailer...with the sounds of Eminem complementing all the running, stunting, and stand-offing between Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner. (I used to hate the name Jeremy. Probably because I went to school with one and he was a smartass dick. Full Story
Something about all the leather jackets he’s been wearing right? On tour, on SNL, at the Grammys – this one looks almost blue. He looked good. He sounded good. Lorella, who hates him, and I’ll spare her her equivalent here, sent over a note this morning about why he always looks so crusty. Full Story
Take a look at these photos of Adrien Brody at various Super Bowl related parties and events this weekend (the double douching with Diddy is my personal favourite) and try to explain why Stella Artois would book him for the all-important Super Bowl ad. Is this the Stella clientele? Leather suit wearing cheesedicks with soul patches and fake castles Full Story
Eminem was shooting a new video in LA today. I really like when he doesn’t wear sweatpants. I really like when he wears real clothes that are fitted and look good. He looks good. He was in a good mood too. Eminem is usually not all that friendly with paps in candids. Half the time the shots are unusable because he has his head buried into his chest. Full Story
