No need to sign him up for Celebrity Rehab 3! He?s handling those drug problems on his own. After a four-year hiatus it was questionable if the best-selling hip hop artist of all time could still kick it, but with loads of promotional buzz leading up to the new Relapse, Eminem has proven himself once again. Leading us down a path of addiction and abuse flashbacks, the Marshall Mathers we?ve known for over a decade is as provocative as ever on the new disc.
The wacky video for debut single ?We Made You? mocks celebrity and its power. Did you ever think you?d see Em as Bret? Combine that with his extremely dark clip for ?3AM,? and its obvious Slim Shady hasn?t lost his flair for controversy! It pays off. He recently set the charts on? with the highest debut record sales of the year so far.
Also returning from some time off is Rob Thomas, whose new solo album, Cradlesong, hits stores on June 30th! Even after taking a break, both of these guys are working to confirm they still got it, moving into the spotlight without breaking a sweat.
Our ?Leading Men? playlist features Rob?s ?Her Diamonds? (with a cameo from Alicia Silverstone!) alongside Em?s more scandalous vids. Check it out right now. David Cook, Kanye West and other dashing gents will also be found there! – Lacey Seidman
