Celetabloidbenjaminfranklinmakingmachines, We Made You!

A closer look at the lyrics from Eminem‘s latest comeback single We Made You! suggests that the song, contrary to what Eminem claimed in an interview with AfterEllen, is not at all an idiot-boy attempt at “reverse psychology”. Instead, it addresses the absurd tabloid news addiction and desperation for fame that have undeniably engulfed Americans, aka shameless media-whoring, complete celebrity meltdowns, diva-attitudes and disrespect for fans… the list goes on for miles and miles. Love the part where he shoves Kim Kardashian down a machine and it churns out cash, hilarious!

Just a snippet of the lyrics—

You’re a … rock star (baby) 
Everybody wants you (everybody wants you) 
Player… Who can really blame you (who can really blame you) 
We’re the ones who (chicka) made you *cough cough* 
 
Back by popular demand 
Now pop a little zantack or ant’-acid if you can 
You’re ready to tackle any task that is at hand 
How does it feel, is it fantastic, is it grand? 
Well look at all the massive masses in the stands 
Shady man… no don’t massacre the fans.
