Eminem starts fight with Nick Cannon over Mariah Carey
Manufactured controversies are the best, especially when they involve Eminem, who has taken to bashing Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon on his new album Relapse and drawn the ire of the diva's new husband. Hey, Em has to drum up PR somehow.
"Mariah whatever happened to us? Why did we ever have to break-up?" Eminem raps on Bagpipes From Baghdad. "Nick Cannon, you better back the f--- up. I'm not playing, I want her back, you punk." Finally, Em calls Mimi a whore.
Nick was having none of it, taking to his blog and saying Em is "still obsessed with my wife, the same female that wouldn't let him get to second base from 8 years ago."
He then offers a challenge to Slim: "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!"
And as if the accompanying photo of Em with a butterfly covering his crotch and a thought bubble saying "I wish I was Nick Cannon" wasn't enough, Nick digs deeper.
"So, Miss Marshall, I'm going to make you wish you never spoke my name and regret the ungodly things you said about my wife," he writes. "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!"
Wait, is this like when Em got in Moby's face for no reason? Meh. Nick, you've got to take Papa Juice*'s advice -- ignore him and he'll go away.
