How The Mighty Have Fallen Off.../Video: Eminem - We Made You
...And fallen into a bottomless pit of utter wackness. This is terrible. Everybody remotely involved with this video should be ashamed of themselves for simultaneously tarnishing their legacy and retroactively removing 1 extra mic from the "Slim Shady" and "Marshall Mathers" LPs. Just Awful. Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo? Bret Michaels? Lindsay Lohan? Star Trek?!?! It's 2009 and you are in your mid thirties! You should not still be making fun of Hollywood starlets and making fart jokes in your music videos. Can we just skip ahead to the second single where he bitches about either Kim, his mother or how the world is persecuting him? What the really sad part of this all is that Eminem still can really, really, really flow, he just has absolutely nothing left to say. Say what you want about Nas and his penchant for grandiose and incoherent statements but at least, he's trying to cover new ground with his new material, Eminem is trying to mine the same formula that went stale with his last album... which was five years ago and is a serious contender for the worst album of the decade.
This makes "Crack A Bottle" seem like "My Name Is..." and makes "My Name Is..." seem like "T.R.O.Y."...
