The year is , and Britain is still yawning its way into the new millennium. The closest thing we have to a fascist is Anne Robinson and people are so bored they’re sending Big Brother ‘s “Nasty” Nick Bateman death threats. When he came to mainstream prominence around the turn of the century, Eminem was mired in controversy due both to his whiteness and the nature of his music, which was full of slurs, violence, misogyny and homophobia. He was immediately adored by suburban schoolboys who relished how much he wound up their parents, and the media who explained away his hateful lyrics with praise. By flipping his razor-sharp lyrics on himself, Eminem subverts the smirking superiority that plagues mainstream rap, a wily underdog move that lets him get away with more than he could otherwise. In anyone’s terms, Eminem is still huge today — it was just announced that his latest release, January’s Music to Be Murdered By , is only the second album to this year to be certified gold — but it’s difficult to overstate just how colossal Eminem was in those early years of fame. In the years when internet use was prevalent among Western teens but before social media arrived to dominate attention spans, Mathers was basically a multi-millionaire Twitter troll taking potshots at everyone from Michael Jackson to Christina Aguilera to Moby to Pee-wee Herman, with no discernible logic connecting his targets other than they were recognisable figures who were there to be pissed on. Unfortunately for Mathers, time and success have made him part of the same, smirking establishment he spent his early years making fart noises at, and in this era of constant, churning online outrage there has never been any less of a need for his brand of rap. The problem is that these days Eminem is an adult too, yet appears to have been frozen in time by the people he perceives his audience to be.

Rye was spotted with Los Angeles businessman, Karim Webb, over the Christmas holiday and soon confirmed that she and Common were done for good.
