Just gonna stand there and watch me burn. But that's alright because I love the way it hurts...

Rihanna and Eminem already own the number-one song in the land. Now this power duo has come out with a hit video for the single "Love the Way You Lie."

And it stars Megan Fox! What else could you ask for? Watch below and then read Rihanna's take on the tune:

The song deals with domestic violence, something Rihanna says she and Eminem "have both experienced... on different sides."

She's referring, of course, to Eminem's problems with his ex-wife and her relationship with that monster Chris Brown. Adds the beautiful star:

“It just was authentic. It was real. It was believable for us to do a record like that, but it was also something that needed to be done, and the way he did it was so clever. He pretty much just broke down the cycle of domestic violence, and it’s something that a lot people don’t have a lot of insight on."

What do you think of the video?

Miley Cyrus has made it painfully clear for weeks now: she simply cannot be tamed.

But while this may be true in her wardrobe choices, the singer was cut down to size on the music charts last week. Her latest album, "Can't Be Tamed," finished third in sales, behind Eminem's "Recovery" and Drake's "Thank Me Later."

It was expected that Eminem would lead the way, but not by this wide of a margin. His new CD had the biggest opening week of any in 2010, moving over 753,000 copies.

As for Miley? She has to be disappointed, as "Can't Be Tamed" sold just 106,000 albums. That's an astounding 250,000 fewer than Cyrus' 2008 effort, "Breakout," sold during its first week of release.

Sales

Miley's fans will surely complain about our biased coverage now and make up excuses for their favorite artist. And that's fine, that's their right and we admire their passion.

But numbers don't lie: recent poll results show 70% of respondents laugh at the idea of Cyrus as a role model; moreover, her new CD actually sold fewer copies than her previous CD sold in its second week of release.

As we've been saying all along, is it possible Miley's new image may have gotten her attention, but turned away her fan base? Might she have been better served by slowly evolving as an artist, as opposed to pulling every transparent, cheap trick in the book just to prove she's changed?

These are questions Miley, her handlers and her cult-like followers will need to consider carefully.

  • I'm So Edgy!
  • A Tired Move

The public - literally! - is not buying Miley's tired attempts to be edgy and mature.

Last night at the Staples Center, Eminem was joined on stage by Travis Barker, and more significantly by Rihanna for their new song, “Love the Way You Lie.”

“I want to bring out a very special guest with me tonight. California, make Rihanna feel at home ya’ll,” Eminem told the crowd at Activision’s E3 preview event.

The song was one of the leaked Recovery tracks from the rapper's latest album, which features multiple projects with other artists and is earning critical praise.

Check out the live collaboration of superstars below ...

Leaked tracks from Eminem's Recovery album continue to surface online, despite its official release date still being two weeks away. That sucks for Eminem.

Or does it? Conventional wisdom suggests leaks hinder sales, but Em's new songs and collaborations with Rihanna, Lil Wayne and others are drawing raves.

Gaining probably the most online traction of the leaked tracks - a bunch of which are still up as of right now - is "Love the Way You Lie," featuring Rihanna.

Seeing as the song chronicles a destructive, abusive and violent relationship (cough, Chris Brown), it's tailor-made for tabloid fodder as well as a solid track.

Listen to the leaked Recovery track and vote on it below ...

In between Eminem's verses Rihanna brings it in the chorus: "Just gonna stand there and watch me burn / That's alright 'cause I like the way it hurts / Just gonna stand there and hear me cry / That's alright 'cause I like the way you lie."

Follow the jump for two more tracks: Eminem and Lil Wayne sampling Haddaway (no joke) on "No Love," and Pink teaming with him on "Won't Back Down" ...

Sorry, Ben Roethlisberger. If it's a taboo subject, carries pop cultural significance or involves a celebrity (you're 3-for-3), Eminem is gonna go there.

Ben has been immortalized in one of the rapper's songs, fittingly called "Despicable." That's when you know you've made it ... for better or worse.

The Pittsburgh Steelers QB thus joins the ranks of Moby, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Michael Jackson, his mom, ex-wife and countless others.

"I'd rather turn this club into a bar room brawl/Get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall," Eminem raps, referencing Ben's recent scandal.

The line recalls March incident in which, at least according to the unnamed Ben Roethlisberger accuser, he sexually assaulted her in nightclub stall.

Em's about as subtle and restrained as he is un-funny.

EMINEM 1, BIG BEN 0: Sorry dude. You had it coming.

While prosecutors declined to charge the two-time Super Bowl champion, citing lack of evidence, the Steelers' organization and the NFL were none too pleased.

After all, it wasn't the first time a woman made such allegations about him (Andrea McNulty was the first). Big Ben was suspended without pay for six games.

His lame apology didn't exactly make him appear sympathetic.

Roethlisberger's attorney and Steelers representatives did not immediately return calls seeking Big Ben's appraisal of the new Eminem track ... shockingly.

"Despicable" is streaming at Rapradar.com, a site run by Em's manager. It does not, sadly, appear on his upcoming new album, Recovery, due out June 22.

Eminem and Kim Mathers have been married twice.

In 2000, a year after they first tied the knot, Kim attempted suicide and then sued the rapper for defamation after he sung about her violent death in the single "Kim."

Slim Shady Security

The couple remarried in 2006, only to divorce again three months later. Eminem once said: "I'd rather have a baby through my penis than get married again;" while Kim has referred to her ex as being "unathletic" in bed.

In other words: this has been a rocky relationship. Which makes the following rumor entirely possible.

Star Magazine reports that Eminem and Kim aren't just back together; they're expecting a child together this spring! Said a source:

"When he came into Kim's life again in a romantic way, she was floored. Kim's pregnancy is going smoothly."

That's more than we can say about the past between this pair. But, hey, best of luck to them!

From suicide attempts to lawsuits to small penis references, Eminem and Kim Mathers have been through a lot.

** UPDATE: Eminem's rep says: "Contrary to false rumors spread by unreliable tabloids, Marshall and Kim Mathers are not romantically reunited in any way, nor are they expecting a child together."

It looks like Eminem is at it again.

The rapper, known as much for stirring up controversy as writing and rapping incredible lyrics, has released a new song titled "Elevator."

In one of the verses, he appears to refer to a trio of gay celebrities by a derogatory term. He raps:

Sorry, Lance, Mr. Lambert and Aiken ain't gonna make it/ They get so mad, when I call them both fake/ It's all these fucking voices in my head, I can't take it/ Someone shut that fucking baby up, before I shake it.

Say the words "fake" and "it's" together quickly and you'll understand from where the latest controversy arises.

In 2001, following accusations that he was homophobic, Eminem sang a memorable duet with Elton John at the MTV Music Awards. The pair even embraced afterwards.

Because he's so talented, we often wish Eminem would let his ability do all the talking, but he hasn't seemed to have matured much at age 37.

In response to the single, Adam Lambert Tweeted:

"Wow eminem mentioned me in a song?! I must be doin something right!? Even if he used the f word…. Whtev."

Lambert later corrected himself when told the lyrics techically didn't include the word "faggots." Listen to "Elevator" above and decide for yourself.

In what is probably a good move for him, but a bad one for celebrity gossip sites who love a good feud, Nick Cannon took to (what else) his Twitter page to address the ongoing battle between his wife Mariah Carey and rapper Eminem.

Cannon Twittered various philosophical, Biblical quotes about rising above anger and not giving in to revenge: "Never take your own revenge, but rather give place unto the wrath," read one of his messages on the social networking site.

He also included a direct Bible quote, "'I will bless those that bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse.' Genesis 12:3" and insightful thoughts like:

"Those who feed into negativity must examine there [sic] purpose on this earth."

Eminem vs. Mr. and Mrs. Nick Cannon: A feud that shall not end.

The Tweets are a reaction to Eminem's latest track, "The Warning," in which the rapper goes after the Cannons directly, and swears he had a previous relationship with the singer, with the nude Mariah Carey pictures to prove it even.

Eminem initially ripped Carey in the song "Bagpipes from Baghdad." Carey got revenge by portraying a stalker in her video "Obsessed" that looked remarkably like Eminem, though Carey and her husband have denied any parody.

Whose side are you on?

Eminem has once again gone back to the seemingly endless well of celebrity disses and pulled out a new diatribe directed at Mr. and Mrs. Nick Cannon.

The reason (not that he's ever needed one) - he's firing back at Mariah Carey's recent Slim Shady-channeling video for her single, "Obsession."

In "The Warning," Eminem raps:

"I got the exact same tattoo that's on Nick's back, I'm obsessed now, oh gee, is that supposed to be me in the video with the goatee?"

He goes on to gloat about the time Mariah "was wild 'n' out before Nick" and when he himself gave Carey "somethin' to smile about." Wow.

This all started, we think, because Carey has made light of her reported relationship with Eminem back in 2001, and the rapper is clearly pissed.

Eminem gave Carey a shout-out in his recent tune "Bagpipes From Baghdad," which included a pointed suggestion to Cannon to "back the f*%k up."

Cannon responded in May that "homeboy is still obsessed with my wife."

A few days later, Eminem implied to listeners of the satellite radio show he was hosting that he had once urinated on the superstar. On purpose.

Back to Team Cannon. Earlier this year, Carey dressed up like Eminem and poked no small amount of fun at him in her music video for "Obsessed."

Which brings us to "The Warning," in which Eminem scaldingly raps:

"You probably think if I had something on you I woulda did it by now, on the contrary, Mary Poppins, I'm mixing our studio session down and sending it off to mastering to make it loud, enough dirt on you to murder you, this is what the f--k I do..."

"Mariah, it ever occur to you that I still have pictures?"

Oh, boy. "But if I'm embarrassing me, I'm embarrassing you and don't you dare say it isn't true," he continues later in the track.

"As long as the song's getting airplay I'm dissing you, I'm a hair away from getting carried away and getting sued, I was gonna stop at 16, this is 32, this is 34 bars, we ain't even a third of the way through."

Bottom line? Don't expect to outlast Eminem in a feud.

Whose side are you on?

Mariah Carey is out for revenge against Eminem.

Dressing up in drag as the rapper while filming the music video for her song "Obsessed" in New York City, the singer took their feud to a new level.

The Mariah Carey tune's lyrics include this line:

"You're so lame. Ooh boy, why you so obsessed with me? Ohh finally found a girl you couldn't impress / Last man on the earth / still couldn't get this."

Ohh, snap. We have to say, her costume designer did one heck of a job.

Here's Mariah and the real Eminem. Who do you think is more hard core?

Mariah Carey channels her inner Eminem. It's a pretty accurate depiction.

This is in response to when Eminem rapped about Mariah Carey - who he has said he briefly dated in 2001 - in his song "Bagpipes From Baghdad."

In that song, Eminem raps, "Mariah whatever happened to us. Why did we ever have to break-up? Nick Cannon, you better back the f**k up. I'm not playing, I want her back, you punk ... I wish you luck with that ... wh*re!"

Those lyrics prompted Carey's husband Nick Cannon to respond: "What type of grown... man lies about getting with a chick? Only Slim Lamey! LOL!"

Bet Eminem is still stinging inside and lying awake at night replaying that retort. He did admit later that he went too far in that song, at least.
