Rapper Eminem has mocked critics of his controversial video for new single
ASS LIKE THAT - because he can't believe people can be offended by its puppet
The hip-hop singer has teamed up with the comedy team behind US TV show
CRANK YANKERS for the promo, which features puppet versions of MARY-KATE and
Ashley Olsen indulging in lesbian sex, and a masculine marionette of BRITNEY
by the lyrics, "Britney Spears has shoulders like a man".
The promo also pokes fun at Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction and ends
with the plea: "So Gwen Stefani, will you pee pee on me please? / I ain't never
seen an ass like that".
But Eminem, real name MARSHALL MATHERS III, insists the video is as
innocuous as an episode of children's TV show Sesame Street.
The star's spokesman, referring to the TV show's Cookie Monster character,
says, "They're puppets. People should also be concerned because there's
supposedly a puppet monster out there that eats nothing but cookies."
