Soi-disant badboy rapper Eminem returns with more of his increasingly campy schtick in “Just Lose It.” In the video – premiered on MTV’s Making the Video on Saturday – we see him doing Michael Jackson, Madonna, and Pee-wee. The hook for the song is Pee-wee-esque holler scream. And he even grabs Dr Dre in a same-sex clinch. And, above all, we see him stark, staring naked (IE req). The boy’s a natural born exhibitionist.
Then Matt Stone and Trey Parker brought us Team America: World Police and a Saturday Night sneak peak. A surefire hit where Thunderbirds was a sure fire miss, this is a truly welcome poke at the so-called war on terror. What’s really funny about the movie is how gay it is; the key to the plot is the hero blowing his boss and a speech about the need and right of a dick to fuck an arsehole. And it’s not all just anti-Bush, who will surely chortle over the scenes showing the Film Actors Guild (led by Alec Baldwin and other Hollywood stars) joining up with Kim whatever-his-name-is (the mad bad dangerous-to-know North Korean dictator). It’s funny – truly funny – how even in a world gone mad about terror more thrills can be had from the man-on-man and anal sex thing.
Appropiately, I spent the day in my pink Superman long-sleeve T – $16.99 at Target.
