Even Eminem Thinks Ben Roethlisberger is Despicable

Eminem-picture One time I saw an interview with Dave Grohl and he was saying that when Weird Al Yankovic released "Smells Like Nirvana" that it was the moment when the Nirvana realized that they had made it.

I seriously doubt that Ben Roethlisberger feels the same way about being mentioned in Eminem's new song "Despicable".

Yes, Big Ben Roethlisberger, conviction free, but many times on the wrong end of accusations involving sexual assault and rape has already earned fame as the starting quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ben led the Steelers to two Super Bowl wins but I think he has been in the news even more for allegedly forcing himself upon drunk girls in bars.

The lyric in question is "I'd rather turn this club into a bar room brawl. Get as rowdy as Roethlisberger in a bathroom stall."

This is the part where I admit I kind of love Eminem. I think that Marshall Mathers is brilliant and I own and listen to several of his albums.

Eminem is brave. Ben Roethlisberger is 6' 5", he has hired body guards and the entire Pittsburgh Steeler offensive line to protect him. Plus he gets paid to work out.


Then again, Eminem is from Detroit and probably armed.


This clip is NSFW. No joke.

And let's be honest, anyone who can work a name like "Roethlisberger" that easily into that kind of flow deserves to be cut some slack. That crap requires skill.


. . . . .

Goon Squad Sarah was kidding about Detroit. Take it easy!

Eminem knows real sleaze when he sees it.

But I'm biased because I think he is brilliant and oddly hot. (I can't help it.) And I don't for real know what Roethlisberger (good lord I have to work hard to type that right) has done or not done but every time I see him I want to punch him and tell him he has terrible, stupid hair. So my intuition knows he's bad news, anyway.

You are the queen of NSFW videos, which I'd respect. I am, however, at work, so I'll have to comment more relevantly later. And when I come back I'm going to say "Guess who's back. Back again. Shady's back. Tell a friend."

As well you should.

It isn't my fault, the NSFW part, Eminem has a potty mouth.

Life of a Doctor's Wife

Eminem is one talented mofo. (Although his potty mouth is contagious.) He's also hella hot. And a little scary.

(Yes, I know he's said lots of unsavory, nasty things. That's not cool. But he's still a sexy, brilliant man.)


I don't think anyone busts a rhyme as literately as Marshall Mathers. He is awesome. I know we're all supposed to hate him, but I just can't and don't.

Literately: not a word. I know.


Yeah I've never been a big fan of any rap, but the way Mathers puts words together has always impressed me.
