Eminem and Women

December 2, 2014

In this day and age, the molding of children is one of if not the most important task of what a parent may have to face. Many parents have to experience the unpleasant task of having to filter between what to allow or not allow their innocent children to be exposed to. This is due to the fact that the media now plays a huge role on how a child will grow up and what a child will think is right and wrong. Factors such a famous celebrities and music play some of the most influential roles. This becomes a problem when music, such as Rap and Hip-Hop, portray certain issues and ideas in a very negative way (Watkins, 85); a way in which a child may completely misunderstand and therefore take away a very unhealthy idea of it. Not only can a genre be at fault in an instance like this, but also an artist who actually allows to put out such messages and ideas into the world. One of the most controversial topics in the Rap industry is the topic about women and how they should be portrayed. Eminem, an artist who is heavily criticized about his degrading and demoralizing of women in his lyrics and music videos, is an example of such artist (Hess, 490). He is very well known and also loved for his lyrics and music videos that represent women as sexual objects encourage domestic violence against women, and attack women of prestige and power within the social elite world. Eminem’s style of music consists of Rap. The Majority of his lyrics and art is focused around his real life experiences and events (Hess, 490). He would incorporate his problems at home with his wife, or the drug abuse of his mother into his songs without trying to hide it at all. This is one of his main appeals as an artist; his vulnerability attracted many all over the world to tune in and listen to his life story.
Many of Eminem’s most famous tracks are very offensive and degrading to women. He portrays women in a light that they are solely sex objects and do not deserve respect or rights like men do. He is not shy about this and will openly state it in his music (Katz). This is very obviously stated in his hit single “Superman” which was released in 2003. When the song starts, all we hear is the moaning of a women and in the video, this said women is barely dressed and fondling her breasts while Em leads her into a hotel room singing the chorus to her “'Cause I know you want me baby, I think I want you too "I think I love you baby," I think I love you too” and by the end of line in the chorus he changes his tune and says “Bitch you make me hurl”. He goes on to repeatedly call women bitches, sluts, and hoes in his song. In his first verse when he raps the line “Kiss my dick, get my cash, I'd rather have you whip my ass” he is literally grabbing his penis in the music video, while looking at the women through the peephole of hotel room door. Eminem then goes on to say “Don't put out, I'll put you out, won't get out, I'll push you out” which in return the women standing outside rips of her top and has her breasts completely exposed. In this line especially, Eminem is very clearly stating how if a women does not “put out” which refers to offer herself sexually, then she will be “pushed out” by him. He also does this in his music video for his hit single “Just lose it” (2004). He does not use any direct lyrics to degrade women like in his other songs; in fact he does not even really mention women in this song at all. However, all through out the video he has barely dressed women dancing, touching and rubbing their bodies all over him. These are only a couple examples of a songs and videos by Eminem, in which he portrays women as mainly sexual objects.
Along with representing women as sexual objects Eminem is also very well known for his violent messages and in particular, violent to women. In many of his lyrics and videos he is seen supporting domestic violence and the mistreating of women. One very popular example of this is in his hit single “Love the way you lie” (2010). In this song he discusses how it is considered “love” to be violent towards each other in a relationship. In his lyrics, he portrays at there is some sort of adrenaline, even an excitement to be in a relationship like this one.
“I can't breathe but I still fight while I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right it's like I'm in flight
High off her love, drunk from her hate,
It's like I'm huffing paint and I love her the more I suffer, I suffocate
And right before I'm about to drown, she resuscitates me
She fucking hates me and I love it.”

This is very clearly not a message that young women and men need to listen to. Even in the chorus, which is sang by Rihanna, the lyrics state that no matter what he does to her it is okay because she loves the way he lies, which in turn makes all the abuse and the hurt acceptable. The entire video is focused around a very abusive couple that through out the video get in very violent fights, but in the end make up by having sex. Due to the success that this song had, a Part 2 was made by Rihanna, which featured Eminem. Eminem raps “Then after that, shove me, in the aftermath of the destructive path that we’re on, two psychopaths but we know that no matter how many knives we put in each other’s backs that we’ll have each other’s backs, ’cause we’re that lucky”. It is just a continuation of the original song, the love between these two individuals is still there and portrayed in a positive light because they have each other. In many of Eminem’s other songs he even describes actually bringing physical harm to women. In his song “Superman” he states “That's ammo for my arsenal, I'll slap you off that bar stool, there goes another lawsuit, leave hand prints all across you”. His positive attitude and joking manner in which he discusses harm to women in his music and videos only reinforce the fact that Eminem represents women in a very negative and degrading way.

As stated earlier, Eminem is very well known rapper who us very blunt and direct with his music. He is not an artist that very much cares about what others will think or say about him. Eminem will insult anyone and it is almost always usually about an issue that is at the time relevant in his or her life, or something they are known for. His usual targets are famous, strong, and well-known women with power in the social elite industry. This is viewed in his music and even in his videos. Eminem has many songs that mention multiple famous women, and they are all in a very degrading light. One of his most famous comes from his hit single “The Real Slim Shady” (2000). He mentions Pamela Anderson, mentioning her at the time martial problems, which included reports of domestic violence. Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera are also rapped about, in particular Aguilera in which he states: “Shit, Christina Aguilera better switch me chairs so I can sit next to Carson Daly and Fred Durst and hear 'em argue over who she gave head to first, little bitch put me on blast on MTV ‘Yeah he's cute, but I think he's married to Kim, hee-hee’” where then he goes on to say that she also had engaged in sexual intercourse with him and gave him an STD. Within just a couple of lines, Eminem had reduced Christina Aguilera image to the public enormously. Along with the lyrics being extremely disturbing, in his music video, of every insult he made, he would enact a “similar” instance where he had look-alike dolls impersonating the person he was insulting. This is not the only song in which Eminem victimized famous women. He also did this in his hit singles “Ass like that” and “We made you”. In Ass like that, he speaks about Jessica Simpson in regards to her “Newlyweds” reality T.V. show with at the time husband. He raps about her physical appearance and how attractive she is. He also talks to about the Olsen twins, saying: “Now they getting older, they're starting to grow bum-bums”, again focusing on this physical appearance. Also briefly mentioned is Britney Spears, which Eminem states that she “has shoulders like a man”. Many more celebrities are mentioned in this song for example, Hilary Duff, JoJo, Janet Jackson, and Gwen Stefani. All of the insults that are said by Eminem revolve around something relevant that was happening in the women’s lives, whether they were true or not, Eminem took it to the stage to glorify and expose whatever is happening to these women. Just like in his video for “The real slim shady”, Eminem also had look-alike dolls for almost every single one of the celebrities that he insults. The “Ass like that” video is filled with almost completely naked women that are dancing around and shaking their bottoms. Eminem also is using a puppet on his hand when insulting any of the celebrities, and mentions more than once in the song “I can say that and you’ll laugh cause there’s a puppet on my hand”. This is his defence for saying any of the insulting remarks about the women. The songs that have been mentioned are only a couple examples of Eminem’s Blatant attacks on famous women.

In conclusion, it is very clear that Eminem has treated and represented women in a very poor light. His ideals on a way a women should be treated is extremely unacceptable and sets an awful example to just about anyone who may listen to his music, especially younger men and women. He repeatedly represents women as nothing but sexual objects, encourages violence towards women and attacks women of power for anything that may happen in their lives. Eminem’s music while catchy can be very unhealthy and violent to a young mind.

Marshall Mathers

...Eminem “My words are like a dagger with a jagged edge...”- “Criminal”, from “The Marshall Mathers LP” An average rap artist wouldn’t be able to grace the covers of VIBE, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and Spin while on a national tour months before their major debut album is released. An average rapper couldn’t say that he’s collaborated with Dr. Dre, Elton John, and Dido, all in the same year. Then again, Marshall Mathers III, better known as Eminem isn’t your average rapper. No other artist has ever been the center of such heated and conflicting debates. He’s hailed as brilliant by some critics and deemed as indecent and disgusting by others. But the controversy isn’t as simple as that. This is an artist and a man who is as complex as he is talented. “ labels wanted to sign me, almost gave up... until I met Dre, the only one to look past, gave me a chance, and I lit a fire up under his ass...”- “White America” Eminem was born in Kansas City, Missouri. During his early years Marshall Mathers and his mother moved between Kansas and Michigan until the age of twelve when they settled in east Detroit. During these years there would be much turbulence to get through. Tragedies including the suicide of his beloved cousin Ronnie and being abandoned by his father threw his world into what could’ve been an irrevocable downward spiral. They would prove to be haunting to the tortured youth. Without stability finding friends and staying out of trouble......

...beat during a workout. That one song that helps make everything better. That one song that makes me lose my sense of reality, picks me up when I’m down, is “Stan” by Marshall Mathers (Eminem). “Stan” is by far one of Eminem’s greatest songs ever made, it’s one of the songs that made him so popular. I don’t listen to rap but I love listening to “Stan.” It’s one of the deepest songs written and produced by Eminem. This song goes really in-depth about love, suicide, depression, obsession, and murder. I am choosing to interpret this song so you can see it from my point of view. Stan, is the main character from the song he’s a crazy obsessed fan of Eminem. At one point in the song it shows Stan writing a letter to Eminem, he has pictures of Eminem plastered all over his wall. A second part that makes Stan so obsessed is he dyed his hair blond like Eminem’s in the song too. In the first few verses of the song this person “Stan” is a big fan of Eminem and pours his heart out into these letters he writes him. In the letters, he talks about how messed up his life was and still is and how they’re childhoods were so much alike. Including how they should become best friends and they were born from the ghetto, had abusive dads neglected as children’s, and so on. Stan basically explains why he loves Eminem so much, and why they should be together (as...

Other than activist groups, the public at large rarely demands alternative programming and advertisements. “Ralph, Fred, Archie, Homer and the King of Queens: Why television keeps re-creating the white male working-class buffoon”, Butsch, describes the differences between Hollywood’s portrayals of buffoon heads of household in shows such as I Love Lucy and The Brady Brunch and the irresponsible heads of household in The Flintstones and The Simpsons.

Evolution of Music: Offensive to Women, Yet Acclaimed in Society

...The Evolution of Music: Offensive to Women, yet Acclaimed in Society Victor Hugo, a well known French Romantic writer, once stated “Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.” Though this statement was made in the 19th century, it continues to stand true to this day. Through decades of evolution, music has constantly been a way for anyone to express themselves through melodies, timbre, dynamics, and lyrics. People around the world are composing, as well as listening to, all kinds of music, and this unifies nations in all countries and continents. Introduction to Literature is an anthology that consists of a variety of literary works – poems, short stories, and excerpts from novels – that discusses globalization. I believe that a chapter regarding the subject of music and its evolution should be included in the Introduction to Literature. Music has continuously been changing ever since the first beat was tapped, the first piano was struck, the first violin was plucked, and the first horn was blown; however, in the last 150 years, the meaning of lyrics and the style of music has changed drastically. From Bing Crosby to Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson and Eminem, the artists and composers have altered the way music sounds on the radio, computer, and other musical devices. Every genre has artists, who have songs, which have lyrics that contain a story. Whether the story is from a memory, a dream, or an ambition, it......

The Great Gatsby

...You Lie” by Eminem featuring Rhianna. I choose this song because I enjoy listening to it. When the song was first released in 2010, it was one of my favourite songs to play. The song is worldly know and had won various musical awards. Both artists featured on this song are recognized world-wide, for their success and fame in the music industry. “Love the Way You Lie” is about domestic violence. Domestic violence is the abuse verbally, emotionally or physically in any type of relationship. Domestic violence is a commonly known subject and can happen to anyone, male or female. On average 30% of women who have been in a relationship has experience physical or sexual violence from their partner. The story that is carried throughout the song is of two lovers in an abusive relationship. The two lovers refuse to separate even though being in an unsafe love, hate relationship. The two, endure all types of physical and emotional abuse throughout the song, for example when Eminem says “Now you're in each other's face spewing venom in your words when you spit them” Both lovers are fighting, using all types of words to emotionally wound the other. “Love the Way You Lie” gained much of its popularity due to the underlying message about domestic violence. The song helped raise awareness about domestic abuse and violence in relationships. Themes that are found throughout the song are toxic relationships, anger, and regret. A theme of a toxic relationship is found when Eminem says......

Rap Culture Negatives

...Side In America women are supposed to be equal to men. In rap music though, it is portrayed that men are superior to women. Rap music was created in the 1970s and it is a fast growing culture. Rap has “taken the center stage in both the music and television worlds” (why we need to…). This is a problem in our society because women are not portrayed fairly in rap music. This has a negative effect on how the audience perceives women. Rap culture can influence men to think of women as sex objects, normalize domestic abuse, and can instill misogynistic views towards women. Sex is a big part of rap music and culture. It is mentioned in the majority of songs at an alarming number. This has a big influence on males. Rap music contains very explicit content of sexual acts, sexual thoughts, and sexual images. The problem is that most rap songs aren’t about love. The songs are only about the act of sex with a lot...

...Topic An example of morality and decision-making 07:26 PM 10/3/2011 An example of decision making is making money and what to do with it. Money is the driving force of American society; we thrive on capitalism (an ideology that the free market and entrepreneurship will set us free). Money is what we use to pay for electricity to power our houses and apartments. We pay for the use of water, sewage disposal, garbage disposal, clothing, and of course food. Without money life would be bleak. But the real question becomes what to do when you have money? How much money is enough? Both are very good questions. I believe during this particular time in our history, that money is doing more harm than good; I spend my money faster than I can make it, just like many Americans do. The morality part of this topic is that money is not the answer to the privileged people’s problems (though we think it is). However, money in the right hands can literally save lives. All that I have to do is give money to charity. Do I sacrifice that new television to give a little to the extremely poor? Or do I buy the latest one (even though I already own three good working televisions)? The answer is simple, spend less, save more, and give as much as I can to the less fortunate.

Evolution Of Hip-Hop

...and the typical lifestyle that ensues such as crime, drugs, and violence, but rap can be used to talk about the inequality in the world, mistreatment of women, love, sacrifice, and brotherhood. 2Pac set the bar really high, and became a role model for other rappers to follow. Hip-hop is a genre that many people can identify with. The lyrics portray experiences and lifestyles that aren’t exclusive to people of color with similar cultural backgrounds. “Rap is a form of profound musical, cultural, and social creativity” Dyson (Pg. 69). Rap is a form of art, and the culture of hip hop can be reflected by anyone going through a life struggle. Rapper Marshall Bruce has taken the art of rap and expressed it in his lyrics through his own personal experiences and melancholy. Known as his alias’ Eminem and Slim Shady, he is a white American rapper that had a turbulent childhood. In 1999 he released his album The Slim Shady LP. Expressed through his extreme, and graphic lyrics while portraying himself through a different persona called Slim Shady, Eminem sings about his lifestyle and sometimes describing disturbing acts self harm which suggests he was abused as a child. He managed to grab the attention of millions of people especially because he’s white, and that meant that rap was not just for people of color, but for everyone. Eminem has single handedly turned rap into an artistic style of singing, and formulating lyrics that rhyme, but also tell real life stories of a white man with...

Hip Hop Stereotypes Essay

...This is a stereotype that is immediately related to hip-hop. Women have been criticizing hip-hop music because of this stereotype. Artists often use words like “bitch” or “hoe” to be derogatory to women, this is the way they speak, in a hood-like manner, that is the reason why their songs have a lot of derogatory words towards women in them. Artists use misogyny to show masculinity and power since hip-hop is a predominantly masculine genre. These stereotypes do not resemble all of the artists though. There are artists who have condemned violence but have written songs against it like Tupac Shakur who did condemn violence and wrote a song called “Changes”, which is against violence. The West Coast Rap All Stars who wrote another song named “We’re all in the same gang” which talks about how violence is controlling the society, it says in two of it’s verses: “Brothers killin’ other brothers // I though the idea was to love one another.”...

The Times, They Are a’changin’

...Throughout the decades, notably from the 1970s to the present, America has experienced its changes through the influence of hip-hop culture. Cultural hip-hop talks about real-life experiences of subjects such as gangster mafia violence, drugs, degrading of women, and many other realistic, pessimistic values, whether the artist has experienced those situations or not. Currently, the public has opened their ears to a whole new level by listening to the ludicrous lyrics of some of the mediocre, modern-day hip-hop and rap artists. Due to much of the publicity, some of these artists are put on such a high pedestal that they go to extremes by acting out their music and wind up being horrible role models, ruining the names they made for themselves. On the other hand, some artists in hip-hop culture see a political trend form and decide to incite it with heart-grasping lyrics that pertain to the governmental issues. From the 1970s to current times, there is a pattern emerging that Americans are willing to listen to politically subjected songs that hip-hop artists have written as signs of political trends. America’s changes through hip-hop culture have had some influences on the government and public as a whole through significantly realistic lyrics, violence, and trend-setters. Since 1979, when Sugarhill Gang came out with “Rapper’s Delight”, hip-hop music has been “all the rage” for about three decades (Blanchard 1). Hip-hop came from the different genres of jazz, gospel,...
