Despite initiating battles with R&B stars and pop princesses and spitting some of the harshest venom towards people he doesn't like, Eminem has an altruistic side, which was displayed when he visited a terminally ill high school student who was given just one week to live.
After delivering a sneak peek earlier this week, Rihanna and Eminem's video for 'The Monster' debuted Monday (Dec. 16). The visual is less dramatic than their previous collaboration, 'Love the Way You Lie,' but this effort does revolve around a deep concept.
Eminem and Rihanna are making history again with their latest collabo, 'The Monster.' The single is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. RiRi now ties with Michael Jackson for having the most No. 1s (13), while Em ties for the most No. 1s (five) among the rappers.
Part of post-'Encore' Eminem's charm is how outdated his pop culture references are. There's probably no rappers -- or musicians from any genre --who could namedrop Kevin Federline on the hook of a Billboard Top 10 song like Eminem does on 'Berzerk.'
The 2013 EMAs (Nov. 10) marked a big night -- make that a HUGE night -- for Eminem. The rapper performed both 'Berzerk' and the several-thousand word jam 'Rap God' on the stage, and he was also presented with the Global Icon Award.
You can’t overstate Eminem’s star power. Go anywhere in the world and ask people who their favorite rapper is, and they'll likely name the white guy that rapped about the "vomit on his sweater already."
