Rapper Eminem, real name Marshall Bruce Mathers III, gained worldwide recognition for his songs on albums including The Marshall Mathers LP, The Eminem Show, Encore, Relapse, Recovery, and others. While his song lyrics have frequently made the news, he has also made headlines for his comments expressed in interviews.
We tell you about one such interview that is likely to stun everyone in today’s throwback article. However, don’t take it seriously because it was probably staged and not real. Are you wondering what we are referring to? The rapper declared he was gay in a cameo performance in 2014 in which he appeared as himself.
Sony handed their free-spirited followers a major Christmas gift in 2014 by making the tumultuous movie “The Interview” accessible to everyone, not just in a few theatres but also on a number of online streaming sites. Eminem had a cameo appearance in this movie as himself, being interviewed by Dave Skylark, the main character (played by James Franco).
Eminem comes out as gay during the rehearsed interview. He has long been accused of being homophobic due to his frequent usage of the f-word. Marshall Mathers deadpans the event successfully even if the entire affair is probably not true. I’m more amazed that people haven’t realized it yet, the rapper is heard saying.
The Love the Way You Lie rapper can then be heard saying to James Franco’s character in the video, “I’ve been playing gay peek-a-boo for years. Basically, I’ve been leaving a gay breadcrumb trail. The host of the movie is still in awe, and the entire production is in hyperdrive as they keep running the show with attention-grabbing headlines.
The song Medicine Ball from Relapse’s lyrics, “I said lovely rectum, I got a vasectomy, Hector / So you can’t get pregnant if I bisexually wreck ya,” is also featured in the video. Seth Rogen’s character Aaron Rapaport asks Franco questions about it. Then, when discussing it, Eminem states that “Hector’s rectum was real.” Here is a link to the video:
