Eminem = Kobe
So yah, The Source had its press conference last night, and played Eminem's 1993 oh-so-shocking racist recording. According to an email from our attending spy, "Unfortunately, the event wasn't much fun. ZzzzZzzzz..." You can all thank her for that in-depth report. Anway, the best part of this sort of press gangbang is that none of the attending media companies are allowed to print half the words Eminem is being criticized for using.
From the "deeply flawed metaphor" department: "We gotta treat this the same way you treat Mike Tyson, like you treat Kobe Bryant, like you treat R. Kelly, like you treat O.J. Simpson," said Benzino, co-owner of The Source, to the press. He so didn't want to go there.
