Battle Of The YouTube Videos - Eminem vs Mariah Carey

Social Media has been used for a lot of things, but fueling the the fire of an ongoing feud is a new twist. A singer and a rapper are using the tools of social media to expose their basest instincts.

Accusations of obsession are slung up against warnings to discredit the other with photos of sexual exploits. Eminem squares off with Mariah Carey in a YouTube volley of videos that will not only fan the flames of their animosity, but will also boost their record sales. After all, if you want your message to go viral, what better place to hype your wares than on YouTube.    


In early July, Mariah Carey's new single "Obsessed" from her upcoming album 'An Imperfect Angel'Mariah Carey as EminemMariah Carey as Eminem which will hit stores in stores August 25. It is one long diss directed at Eminem, whom she claims she never dated and who needs to get over his obsession with her. To reinforce her point, she cross-dresses like Slim Shady and ridicules his infatuation.



A CelebTV Newscast capsulizes the feud between the two:



On July 30, 2009, Eminem retaliates with "The Warning," which was leaked to the press by the bad boy himself (I'm sure). On the new track the Detroit rhymster lays into Carey, liberally applying a series of  graphic X-rated expletives for a grueling three and a half minutes (warning: this video is not for the pure at heart!) .



No one really comes out looking that great in this bitter rivalry, but it's Nick Cannon (Mariah's most current husband) who seems to be the innocent party, most injured.

If neither one of these characters can move on from an alleged lascivious hook-up said to have taken place some 8 years ago, there must have been some deep-rooted feelings between the two. In any event, they've both got albums to promote, and even Nick Cannon will not do all that poorly as a result of this  fracas, since his TV show "America's Got Talent" could probably use a ratings boost this summer!

If you are still undecided as to which party has gained the upper hand, here are the x-rated lyrics in their graphic entirety. While these videos have only garnered some tens of thousands views, I am sure if you check back with YouTube in the weeks to come, you will see they have exploded into the hundreds of thousands, if not millions. That's the beauty of going viral. And to that end, I think these two self-absorbed feudsters have met their crass objective!

Eminem's'The Warning' lyrics


Only reason I dissed you in the first place is because you denied seeing me
  • Now I'm pissed off
  • Sit back and relax homey, kick back and relax, grab a six pack while I kick facts
  • Yeah Dre's sick track, perfect way to get back
  • Wanna hear something wick wack?
  • I got the exact same tat that's on Nick's back
  • I'm obsessed now
  • Oh gee, is that supposed to be me in the video with the goatee
  • Wow Mariah, I didn't expect her to go balls out
  • Bitch, shut the fuck up before I put all them phone calls out you made to my house when you was wild n out before Nick
  • When you was on my dick and give you somethin to smile about
  • How many times you fly to my house? Still trying to count
  • Better shut your lying mouth if you don't want Nick finding out
  • You probably think cuz it's been so long if i had something on you I woulda did it by now
  • On the contrary, Mary Poppins, I'm mixing our studio session down and sending it to mastering to make it loud
  • Enough dirt on you to murder you
  • This is what the fuck I do
  • Mariah, it ever occur to you that I still have pictures?
  • However you prefer to do and goes for you too, Nick, faggot
  • You think I'm scared of you?
  • You gonna ruin my career you better get one
  • Like I'ma sit and fight with you over some slut bitch cunt who made me put up with her psycho ass over 6 months and only spread her legs to let me hit once
  • Yeah, what you gonna say? I'm lucky? Tell the public that I was so ugly that you fucking had to be drunk to fuck me?
  • Second base? What the fuck you tell Nick, punk?
  • In the second week we was dry humping. It's gotta count for something.
  • Listen, girly. Surely you don't want me to talk about how I nutted early cos ejaculated early and bus all over your belly, and you almost started hurling and said I was gross, go get a towel you're stomachs curling. Or maybe you do.
  • But if I'm embarrassing me, I'm embarrassing you and don't you dare say it isn't true.
  • As long as the song's getting airplay I'm dissing you.
  • I'm a hair away from getting carried away and getting sued.
  • I was gonna stop at 16. This is 32. This is 34 bars. We ain't even a third of the way through.
  • Damn, Slim. Mariah played you. Mariah who?
  • Oh did I say ''whore'', Nick? I meant a liar too.
  • Like I've been goin off on you all this time for no reason.
  • Girl you out ya alcholic mind. Check ya wine cellar. Look at all the amounts of wine.
  • Like I sit around and think about you all the time.
  • I just think this is funny when I pounce you on a rhyme.
  • But it now i'm about to draw the line.
  • And for you to cross it that's a mountain that I doubt you wanna climb.
  • I can describe areas of your house that you wouldn't find on an episode of Cribs
  • A blubba load ribs if I hear another word so don't go opening your jibs cos every time you do it's just another load of fibs
  • I ain't saying this shit again, ho. You know what it is.
  • It's a warning shot for before I blow up ya whole spot
  • Call my bluff and I'll release every fucking thing I got
  • Including the voicemails right before you flipped your top
  • When me and Luis were tryin' to stick two CD's in the same spot
  • (Slim Shady I love you)
  • I love you too
  • Let me whisper sweet nothings into your ear, boo. Now what you say?
  • (It's nothing)
  • Guess what I'll do?
  • I'll refresh your memory when you said ''I want you''
  • Now should I keep going or should we call truce?
  • (You think you're cute, right? Hahaha)
  • You bet your sweet ass I do
  • (I'm Mary Poppins, b)
  • And I'm Superman, mmm
  • (Mary P. Slim Shady)
  • Comin' at you
  • So if you'll still be my (babygirl)
  • Then I'll still be your (Superhero, Wilma M.)
  • Yeah, I'm right here
  • (You like this)
  • Nope. Not anymore, Dear.
  • It cuts like a (knife) when I tell ya get a (life)
  • But I'm movin on with mine
  • Nick, is that your (wife)
  • Well tell her to shut her mouth then I'll leave her alone
  • If she don't (sing this script?) then I'ma just keep goin
  • (I see Mary Ann. Mary Ann's saying ''cut the tape, cut the tape''. Knife!)

OMG!

OMG, to see the two together in comparation, wow. Em. has a stronger case. I remember the early story, it was Mariah personality w/da phone calls. I remember hearin about those and that proved his case for me. Now he gets more heated of course. Mariah can just laugh and play her lie over and over. I love them both as Music Artists-completely, but w/this public personal matter in da open. Em. Wins in my opinion. I am sure he saved those conversations somewhere. You cannot date Em and be foolish or stupid. You better be smart like Kim. Marshall does not stick with Mariah Types. I did not think they went all the way, but now...you never know...I can tell they hooked up and she won't admit to even that part-What?. Thats foul!! You cannot say, "You dated Eminem" Modern life Dating is something causal, no big deal-remind-No big deal! Its not marriage-ok. She makes like he's trash or something. Mariah has issues, completely. He was a temp. Hot Bad Boy, she had her play time and not she regrets it i guess. What?? He is a true hottie and you do get in his mix, she just gon deny it??? Come on people.

Yeah MJ does have some kinda issues, but then again her dude it just as crazy as she is. Nick said he was going ruin Eminem career. Then what happens? MJ comes out with obssesed and then gets a verbal ass whooping from "The warning".
