To say that Eminem has a complicated relationship with his mother is as much of an understatement as Dr. Dre is not-poor. Not only did he call her a “selfish bitch” who should “f*ckin’ burn in hell,” she once sued him for $10 million for slander. They’re a regular June and Beaver Cleaver, those two. But today’s Mother’s Day and it’s time to let bygones be no tits, which is why in the Spike Lee-directed music video for “Headlights,” Eminem apologizes for everything’s that happened between them.
Cause to this day we remain estranged and I hate it though
Cause you ain’t even get to witness your grandbabies grow
But I’m sorry momma for “Cleaning Out My Closet,” at the time I was angry
Rightfully, maybe so, never meant that far to take it though
Cause, now I know it’s not your fault and I’m not making jokes
That song I’ll no longer play at shows and I cringe every time it’s on the radio
I’d say send this video to your mom, but no. Buy her a Fleetwood Mac CD. That’s all she wants, anyway.
