Eminem Goes Postal On Lady Gaga In New Bad Meets Evil Track “A Kiss”
Pucker up, Eminem fans: the Chrysler spokesman just dropped “A Kiss” with his Bad Meets Evil partner-in-rhyme Royce da 5’9″, and we are shocked — utterly shocked — that the “Die Hard” rapper has some unflattering things to say about one of his contemporaries on the tune. In fact, we think Lady Gaga is long past due in joining the proud ranks of Britney Spears, Moby, Elton John, and seemingly every other musician who has worked in the past fifteen years, thanks to some harsh wordplay comparing Mrs. York to a “mail lady.” Listen below.
The full insult? “Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office / She’s still a male lady.”
Obviously, we expect nothing less of Marshall Mathers than a dis of the chart-topping diva, particularly off an album called Hell: The Sequel. (Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj gets another much less scathing shout-out.) It’s proof positive that the “Lighters” softie hasn’t gone too warm and fuzzy (as if we had any doubts).
Beyond that, the track is serviceable but unexceptional, with plenty of raunchy obscenities amidst a few clever rhymes. Clearly the Bad Meets Evil duo didn’t take the “mail lady’s” lesson on tolerance in “Born This Way” to heart — but where would Slim Shady be without controversy?
