He’s certainly no stranger to offending people with his lyrics, but we think that Eminem might have gone a *little* bit too far this time.
The rapper, who has hit out at female stars including Christina Aguilera in the past, seems to have turned his attentions to poor old Lana Del Rey, threatening to ‘punch her in the face’ in a freestyle rap to promote forthcoming album Shady XV.
WE’RE NOT ON BOARD WITH THIS, EM.
Also mentioning disgraced NFL star Ray Rice – who was recently filmed knocking his wife unconscious – the 42-year-old has basically sent Twitter into meltdown.
The lyrics include: “I may fight for gay rights, especially if they d**e is more of a knockout than Janay Rice/ Play nice?
“B**ch I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance/ Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens.”
While the superstar *may* just be trying to highlight the issue if domestic violence, we’re not sure that Twitter saw it like that.
One user wrote: “why cant eminem ever release music without disrespecting other people; he’s like 40 years old and he attacks a legend like lana del rey.”
