On second thought, even Eminem admits he may have made a mistake when he referred to Mariah Carey as a "whore" in the single "Bagpipes from Baghdad."
Following a challenge thrown down by Carey's husband, Nick Cannon, Eminem told British DJ Tim Westwood:
With the song “Bagpipes From Baghdad,” there’s a line on there, I mean, I kinda spazzed out on that record but I guess I spazzed out on every record. There’s a line on there that was a little harsh, you know, it’s a harsh line… but you know man, the way I look at it, I said it, I had no idea he was going to take it like he took it.
I had no idea Nick Cannon was gonna start wildin’ out on me. No pun intended. I heard about some of the things he was saying, I didn’t read his blog or anything. It is what it is, he’s supposed to defend his wife. I expected him to do that. But at the end of the day, it’s a line I said, but I meant to say is I wish them the best.
