Eminem has stepped forward to clear the air in regards to his words of venom for pop sensation Lady Gaga. The high-powered lyricist says he has no beef with the singer and that his verse from “A Kiss” with partner in rhyme Royce Da 5′ 9″ was all fun and games.
The Detroit rapper turned heads a few weeks back when the track from his and Royce’s joint album Hell: The Sequel leaked featuring a jab directed at Lady Gaga as well teenage superstar Justin Bieber. On Em’s bars from “Kiss” the MC refers to the dominating singer as a man adding another entertainer to his hit list.
“Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office/She’s still a male lady” Em raps on the song.
Speaking out for the first time, according to Em his verse was for meant for play and shouldn’t be taken for anything further than a joke.
“I think Lady Gaga, as an artist you know, she’s undeniable, you know” Em told Fuse TV. “That was one of them things where sometimes I get a joke in my head and I kinda want to share it with the world, you know what i’m saying. So it was just one of them things man, and it’s, you know, it’s all in fun, it’s Hip-Hop.”
Eminem and Royce Da 5′ 9″’s official release of Hell: The Sequel hits stores today. The album features Bruno Mars, comedian Mike Epps and Shady Record signees Slaughterhouse as well production from Mr. Porter, Havoc of Mobb Deep and Bangladesh.
