Damn, I gotta admit this is a super-hot track. Probably the most awesome diss track I’ve ever heard. In fairness, Mariah started it, with her “Obsessed” song and the video that clearly targeted Em. But Eminem is following suit, with a full-length diss track called “The Warning.” He talks some serious smack about Mariah — calling her a whore, a liar and an alcoholic — and threatens to release naked photos of her if she denies anything he says in the track. To cap it all off, he samples some Mariah shit off what I think is a studio session they did together. Oh, and he calls Nick Cannon a “faggot.” Lovely, just lovely. Seriously, though, love him or hate him — you gotta admit Em’s a genius. This is a truly brilliant diss track.
Remind me never to date a rapper.

You know, only Mariah Carey could have such an intense level of self-worship to sing a song and film a video that’s all about someone being obsessed … with her.
A couple of weeks ago, I posted some pics from the video shoot and felt, and still feel, that this whole production is totally directed toward Eminem. Of course, Mariah denied any connection, which I hate. If you’re going to obviously slam someone in the most public way possible, just own it. Take me for example: I totally admit that Mariah Carey is a self-involved, marginally talented pop tart that needs to abandon her formula of getting up on all fours and writhing around like a sloth imprisoned in spandex. Opinion. Owned.
Jump in if you want to read all the words to this lyrical masterpiece. Which begs another question: Mariah, what did the word “are” ever do to you? Use it! It’s an important word.

I, for one, have had it with these two.
Eminem has played answering machine tapes of Mariah from when they briefly dated, told a radio station that he pissed on her, and referred to her in his song “Bagpipes from Baghdad.”
See Mariah above, filming the video for her new song “Obsessed.” Is there any doubt that she’s spoofing Em?
I’m so sick of both of them.

Last week, Wendie wrote about the supposed feud that’s been brewing between Nick Cannon and Eminem over some lyrics in Eminem’s new single “Bagpipes from Baghdad” and a few wet and wild comments he made about Cannon’s wife, Mariah Carey, on his satellite radio show. Cannon had initially posted a blog entry on his website, basically calling Slim Shady out for fisticuffs. But now he’s saying that in spite of his harsh words towards Shady, there is no feud between the two of them.
“I felt like I said what I had to say,” Cannon said. “I didn’t take [the post] down, like, ‘Oh, somebody instructed me to do it’ or anything like that. It was just one of those things, like, I said it.”
As for the real reason he took the post down, Cannon said it had to do with the traffic to his Web site, which “pretty much crashed my site. There’d be thousands and thousands of comments and people couldn’t leave comments on other posts or any of that stuff. So that was the only reason why I took it down.”
And while noted that he doesn’t have any regrets about what he said — “I feel exactly the same way by it and stick by everything, but I think it’s one of those things where it becomes that it’s not really that big of a deal, you know?” — he did say he has no beef with the MC.
“I never even considered it as beef,” he said. “It’s not beef. It’s just, Hey, I heard the record. I said what I had to say.”
So, if it’s not beef, what is it? Tofurkey? I can’t imagine that if some guy says horrible things about your wife in one of his songs and then claims to have pissed on her you would just let that drop.

I mean that literally, of course, as Mariah opted to wear sunglasses — at night — to a boat party in Cannes. She’s obviously saving her actual eyes for her beloved. She and Nick, who’ve been married for over a year now, still looked as lovey-dovey as ever. I find myself rooting for this couple. They do seem to be so in love, and Mariah’s had a long and painful relationship road, and she deserves something good in her life. Nick Cannon is a good guy. I hope these crazy kids make it. I hope they have the common sense not to do a reality TV show about their marriage.

I know that Eminem says he’s sober, but I dunno.
Last month he got things stirred up when he released his new single-an ode to Mariah Carey, whom he briefly dated in 2003- “Bagpipes from Baghdad” which had lyrics that went something like, “Nick Cannon better back the f*** up. I’m not playing, I want her back, you punk. Nick Cannon, you pr**k, I wish you luck with that f***in’ whore.” You can imagine how much Mr. Mariah Carey liked that. He’s vowed that there will be “repercussions.” I think that’s code for, “I’m sending her back to you, Em.”
Eminem must not feel too threatened by Nick Cannon since he isn’t done yet. While taking calls on his Shade 45 satellite radio station, Em said, “We’re taking callers right now (from) any woman who wants to be peed on.” When asked what he would say if Mariah called in, he replied, “I already did that.”
So, Mariah, does returning Marshall Mathers’ call six years ago get filed under Biggest Mistake of Your Life, or what?
