Eminem Delivers a Super-Weak Pun Dis of Lady Gaga in New Bad Meets Evil Song
Posted by Newson 06/04/2011 at 2:26 PM
Eminem has never shied away from sharing his personal opinions about contemporary pop stars, from bitching about Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera back in the days of “The Real Slim Shady” to informing Nicki Minaj of his desire to have anal sex with her in “Fast Lane” earlier this year. The chance to comment on his peers often inspires some of Em’s best, most impassioned spitting, but not so much on recent Bad Meets Evil leak “A Kiss,” where he revives some old rumors about the world’s biggest pop star: “Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office / She’s still a male lady.”
Groan. Aside from being painfully unfunny and drudging up lame gossip that only people who still think that Marilyn Manson was also Paul on The Wonder Years continue to believe, the pun doesn’t even make sense—if she is a male/mail lady, then why bother quitting her job at the post office? Because she would continue to be a male/mail lady even without her prior occupation, because she has both a penis and a vagina? Will she continue to get regular pay and benefits for that, then? Disappointing, Marshall.
Aside from that, the song’s not bad, though. Check it out, and if you can think of a way to dis Lady Gaga for untrue rumors about her from 17 years ago that doesn’t suck, do be sure to let us know.
