Has Eminem's celebrity-skewering gone too far?
No, we don't care that Bill O'Reilly called out the rapper for lyrics in his latest single, "We Made You." That guy sucks.
But Nick Cannon has gone public with a more understandable complaint: Eminem refers to his wife, Mariah Carey, as a "whore" in the song "Bagpipes From Baghdad."
In the single, the artist refers to his alleged romance with Carey from years ago, rapping:
Mariah whatever happened to us. Why did we ever have to break-up? Nick Cannon, you better back the f--- up. I'm not playing, I want her back, you punk... I wish you luck with that ... wh---"
In an admirable defense of his woman, Cannon fired back at Eminem in a blog entry last week, writing that he is "still obsessed with my wife, the same female that wouldn't let him get to second base from 8 years ago."
Cannon then refers to Eminem as "Slim Lamey" and challenge to him to a confrontation:
"Man to man, let's meet up and deal with this like adults. This is my invitation to you, whenever and wherever you like sir. So when you come out of your introverted hiding place and ask your bodyguards if you can go out and play by yourself, I'm here Pimp!
"Miss Marshall, I'm going to make you wish you never spoke my name and regret the ungodly things you said about my wife. Your legacy has now been tainted from this day forth! You will now be known as the rapper who lost to corny-ass Nick Cannon!"
Wow. Whose side are you on in this feud?
