Eminem Swears He's Not Homophobic Despite All Of The Gay Slurs He Uses In His Music!

eminem gay interview

If actions truly do speak louder than words, than we might be able to see Eminem's side of why he doesn't consider himself homophobic.

After all, the 41-year-old rapper has come out in favor of gay marriage, performed live with Elton John at the Grammys, and has repeatedly sworn off those who insist he's anti-LGBT.

But just as his first EP was back in 1997, Slim's new album is also scattered with language that would suggest otherwise, including his much-criticized new track, Rap God, a song which features the "f-word" and also uses "gay" as an insult.

As always, Eminem is once again telling everyone out there that he has no issues with gay, bi or trans people. He tried to explain why he still writes lyrics that include those words, saying:

"I don't know how to say this without saying it how I've said it a million times. It was more like calling someone a bitch or a punk or asshole. So that word was just thrown around so freely back then. And, not saying it's wrong or it's right, but at this point in my career – man, I say so much shit that's tongue-in-cheek. I poke fun at other people, myself. But the real me sitting here right now talking to you has no issues with gay, straight, transgender, at all. I'm glad we live in a time where it's really starting to feel like people can live their lives and express themselves. And I don't know how else to say this, I still look at myself the same way that I did when I was battling and broke."

What E's fans may understand but what others may not recognize right away is that his rhymes are those of a persona — one who might be on a mission to annoy people in the first place. When asked if the words coming out of his mouth were his own or Slim Shady's, Em responded:

"Well, look, I've been doing this shit for, what, 14 years now? And I think people know my personal stance on things and the personas that I create in my music. And if someone doesn't understand that by now, I don't think there's anything I can do to change their mind about it."

While we certainly don't condone using hate speech EVER, no matter how innocuous it's intended to be, we're willing to take Eminem's word on not being an anti-gay rapper. Realize that your music makes an impact on all those who listen to it though, E. Write the lyrics you want to write. Just understand how some might be hurt by what you say.

    Oh shut up already about gay issues, you disgusting queer. All you want to do is stir the pot and profit from it. If Eminem doesn't like homos, that's his right, and nobody cares what YOU think, least of all Eminem. You and your soapbox are so completely irrelevant that it's almost laughable that you keep posting on gay crap. You're not changing minds, and you're not winning hearts. All you ever accomplish is making most of us roll our eyes and laugh at you. You're a fucking idiot.

    Re: The Truthinator – Agreed. I am homophobic and will always be regardless of what anyone says - being gay is disgusting!

    I think it's well documented that Eminem is a homophobe. Who wouldn't be one anyway? Lezbos are the worst imo, they rape every girl they see.

    Eminem prefers a tongue in his rear rather than a mice! Can't blame him!!!

    If you have a son and he comes out as gay when he's 15, are you going to think he's disgusting too? Probably you would be the parent who throws the kid out onto the street and lets him fend for himself. Gays are citizens like anyone else. They pay taxes and just want to live their lives. The next generation, once yours dies off, will be a much kinder and accepting one. Can't come soon enough, although already it's happening as things are starting to change now.

    Re: GAGAFAILS – Agreed. I don't mind poofs but lezbos deserve the electric chair.
