Eminem’s music videos are nominated for Best Male Artist, Best Video With A Message, Best Direction, and Best-Cinematography!
He is nominated for Best Male Video.
It used to be Lady Gaga. Finally people have come to their senses. :)
Detroit’s homegrown rapper Eminem — with his Oscar-winning hit, “Lose Yourself,” thumping in the background — will pitch the new Chrysler 200 in a two-minute commercial airing during the Super Bowl.
The Chrysler 200 replaces the Chrysler Sebring midsize car, arguably the most maligned vehicle to ever come out of Auburn Hills.
Chrysler needs the 200 to be a success in order to be a player in the vital midsize car segment. Midsize cars made up 15% of the 11.6 million new vehicles sold in 2010.
In the ad, Chrysler will sell itself as an upscale brand, asking: “What does a town that’s been to hell and back know about luxury?”
After giving Detroit’s street cred on the issue, Eminem appears in the ad, at the Fox Theatre, and declares that this is “what we do” in the Motor City.
Chrysler would not confirm Eminem would appear in the ad or say which vehicle would be promoted. In addition, a Claymation version of Eminem will appear in a Lipton Brisk Iced Tea commercial during the Super Bowl.
On Friday, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne hinted about the automaker’s commercial: “I won’t tell you what it’s about, but it will be worth watching.”
Marchionne, who spoke at a San Francisco event associated with the National Automobile Dealers Association’s annual convention, said Chrysler spent less than $9 million on the ad.
Last year, Chrysler was the only Detroit automaker to advertise during the Super Bowl. This year, GM and Chrysler will air spots during the game, and Ford during the pre-game.
The Black Eyed Peas and Justin Bieber may have some additional superstar company on Sunday. Eminem will make an appearance during the Super Bowl in a commercial for Lipton Brisk Iced Tea, the New York Post reported on Monday (January 31).
For a reported $1 million payday, Em will be remade into a claymation character in a commercial described by an unnamed insider as “very funny.” While it’s a rare promotional gig for the press-shy Detroit MC, he’s the latest star to appear in the series of stop-motion ads for the beverage, following previous spots starring metal icon Ozzy Osbourne — who is set to co-star with Bieber in a Super Bowl commercial for Best Buy — and go-to tattooed bad-guy actor Danny Trejo (“Machete”).
Spokespersons for Eminem and Brisk parent company Unilever could not be reached for comment at press time about the ad, but it’s certainly expected to be a step up from the joke infomercial he did last year to help launch Recovery.
The Lipton commercial reportedly showcases a day in the life of Eminem. And after five years of reclusive behavior, Eminem appears poised to come out of his shell a bit more. He recently signed rapper Yelawolf and group Slaughterhouse to his Shady Records label. On the film front, he’s signed to star as a boxer in the drama “Southpaw” and is reportedly in talks to star as an ex-con in the movie “Random Acts of Violence.”
Eminem’s also slated to perform at the Grammy Awards on February 13, where he’s got a leading 10 nominations, including the coveted Album of the Year for his comeback effort, Recovery. The rapper appears in a touching 30-second spot that promotes the awards show and showcases his legacy, from the loss of friend and fellow MC Proof to his struggles through drug dependency and his rise back to the top of the hip-hop game.
And, just in case you forgot, Eminem has 10 nominations.
- Album of the Year
- Record of the Year
- Song of the Year
- Best Rap/Sung Collaboration
- Best Rap Song
- Best Rap Album
- And more!
So don’t forget to watch on February 13th! :)
Eminem’s “Recovery” was the best-selling record of 2010. Fox’s “Glee” was one of the most-watched new shows of 2010.
Eminem famously mocked Britney Spears. “Glee” famously devoted an entire episode to her music.
Teenage fans adore Eminem despite his decidedly-adult lyrics. Teenage fans adore “Glee” despite its stars’ decidedly-adult wardrobe choices.
It seems inevitable, then, that the entertainment industry’s pop-culture recyclotron would one day pair the two together, resulting in a quick-quip mash-up for the ages.
But it won’t happen any time soon.
Not only have rumors of an Eminem guest appearance been thoroughly debunked, but now comes news the show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy tried — and failed — to license “Lose Yourself” for an upcoming episode.
Jan. 27, Hollywood Reporter: …even with Glee’s undeniable popularity and selling power, certain artists demand a premium for their songs. “We went after Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself,’ and it was jaw-droppingly expensive,” Murphy says. “Around $200,000. We couldn’t do it because the episode would’ve been so over budget.
So sorry, Gleminem fans, Will Schuester won’t be losing himself in Marshall Mather’s music anytime soon.
Eminem has signed Yelawolf to his record label Shady Records, it has been announced.
Yelawolf, who used to be homeless, is currently putting this final touches to his debut album, due out in the spring.
In an interview with Vibe magazine, the rapper said he was signed after Eminem and his manager Paul Rosenberg flew him to Detroit for a meeting.
“When I called my mom to tell her—she straight started ‘boo hoo’ crying, she was just so happy for me,” Yelawolf said.
“She knows how big Eminem is and she never imagined that I would get to this level. My team actually even surprised me with the news and literally just said ‘the Shady deal is done’ one day.”
The rapper added that he had yet to record any music with Eminem, although he said they hoped they could work in the future.
His comeback to music was a total success, so why shouldn’t he give acting another go? No word yet what role Em would play, but the plot reportedly centers around an ex-con, who tries to stay on the straight and narrow, despite the temptations from his old friends and the FBI, who try to recruit him to bring down the syndicate. If they put him in the lead, people are just going to call it 8 Mile 2, but we think he would do well in a bit part as one of there old friends of the ex-con. Just a little something to get his feet wet in the acting game. Thoughts?
