I've always hated Eminem for being an insincere, narcissistic twit. This does not change that, but it is definitely the first time I have ever heard actual anger behind his vocals instead of that goofy bounce-beat look-at-me crap. The video is a little bit overblown at times, but it certainly captures the anger and more so suspicion many people feel about the administration.<br><br>I never new little Marshal had it in him.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
Nope. But he's young, angry and most importantly, he speaks his own mind. Its not common for people like him to show interest in this.<br><br>“Honestly, I think we should just trust our president and every decision that he makes."<br><br> <blockquote> -Britney Spears </blockquote><br><br><br>Is that better?<br><br>

Stick with the (sometimes dubious) talent that you believe you have, and entertain people. Just because someone likes your music, doesn't mean that we should believe your opinions.<br><br>

I think it all depends on how much credence you give art, and how much art you give music. For example, I don't think anyone would deny that Picasso's Guernica is the most striking and passionate painting against Spanish fascism. Now, Eminem certainly is not Picasso, but the premise is the same in terms of art. We here are not talking about who Eminem is voting for, but rather what the art he has crafted has to say.<br><br>This is incomparable to Brittney Spears, unless she sang some anthem for unthinking support of the American power structure.

Art? I suppose that in the postmodern deconstructed world, what he does can be called "art". There are others with a modicum of taste, however, who regard his sophmoric coprolalia an effront to our senses and his over-hyped persona a representation of some of the very worst aspects of our society.<br><br>I don't give a rat's kiester about his politics.

Right. I'm not saying Eminem is not sophomoric and most often sanctimonious. However, it does not take the canon of post-modern viewpoints to state that the title of "art" is not an elevation, it's just a categorization that does not in any way require anyone like or even appreciate its subject.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
