The story so far: Detroit MC Eminem makes an uncompromising, occasionally hilarious but often offensive record that recommends slapping bitches, killing your enemies and tying people up in your trunk and driving your car off a bridge.
Some gullible fans actually take Eminem seriously. Eminem feels bad, and so, confused by his massive success and the gullibility of that crucial seven-year-old demographic, he unwisely spends much of his new The Marshall Mathers LP either drearily apologizing or saying he never really meant what he said back then. Fame, eh? What a bitch.
