Ever wanted to know what's behind all those homophobic lyrics that crop up so often in Eminem 's songs? Well, in an on-camera interview the Detroit born rapper explained it's been highly apparant all along—a classic case of "the lady doth protest too much. The year-old has come under fire in the past for his homophobic lyrics, such as this gem from his hit Rap God :. Despite the blatant homophobia sprinkled throughout his lyrics, Eminem has regularly claimed in interviews that he has no problem with people being gay—he even came out so to speak in favor of gay marriage, and performed with Elton John at last year's Emmys —oh, and, side note—Elton is also reportedly Eminem's AA sponsor. He addressed the homophobia accusations last year in an interview with Rolling Stone :. I'm glad we live in a time where it's really starting to feel like people can live their lives and express themselves. And I don't know how else to say this, I still look at myself the same way that I did when I was battling and broke.

'I'm gay!' Eminem's shocking revelation
American rapper Eminem is quite possibly the last person anyone would expect to utter the words, "I am gay. The controversial star has previously provoked outrage over allegations of sexism and homophobia in his lyrics and famously stormed out of the MTV Awards after Sasha Baron Cohen's flamboyant chaarcter Bruno landed on him during the ceremony. That particular incident was later revealed to be a carefully orchestrated stunt - and so is his latest shocking revelation. Eminem enters completely into the spirit of things as he keeps a fantastically straight face no pun intended during a hilarious scene from the equally controversial new film The Interview.
What really grates, though, is that Kamikaze is only a reminder that while Tyler is still banned from the UK, Eminem will continue to rake in millions from record sales and touring in Britain without repercussions for a two decade-long career of verbally abusing minorities. He might praise artists such as Kendrick Lamar and J Cole on his new record, but neither of them feels the need to use homophobic slurs in their latest material. Hate fags?
