Rihanna & Eminem: ‘Monster’ — Listen To Their Sexy New Song
Detroit native Eminem is no stranger to making great music! Known for his controversial lyrics and outlandish music videos, he speaks his mind and delivers effortlessly on his latest song, “Monster”. Rihanna, 25, glazes the pop-rock, up-tempo track with her raw, edgy vocals.
Eminem gets in touch with his inner self on the song, discussing the pressures of fame. Check out the lyrics below.
Eminem Featuring Rihanna: “Monster” Lyrics:
I’m friends with the monster that’s under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You trying to save me, stop holding your breath
And you think I’m crazy. Yeah, you think I’m crazy
[Verse 1: Eminem]
I wanted the fame, but not the cover of Newsweek
Oh well, guess beggars can’t be choosey
Wanted to receive attention for my music Wanted to be left alone,
public excuse me Been wanting my cake, I need it too,
wanting it both ways Fame may be a balloon cause my ego inflated
When I blew seep it was confusing Cause all I wanted to do is be the Bruce Lee of loose leaf
Abused ink, used it as a tool when I blew steam
Hit the lottery, oh wee
With what I gave up to get was bittersweet
It was like winning a huge meet
Ironic, cause I think I’m getting so huge I need a shrink
I’m beginning to lose sleep: one sheep, two sheep
Going cuckoo and cuckier as Kool Keith
But I’m actually weirder than you think
Of course, “Monster” is set to be a huge hit on the charts! This isn’t the first time Eminem has featured our bad girl RiRi on a record. In 2010, the duo dropped the #1 hit single “Love The way You Lie”, off of his seventh studio album Recovery. And Rihanna featured Eminem on “Numb”, a track off of her seventh studio album, Unapologetic (2012).
The hot duo continues to give their fans amazing music, and hopefully, this song won’t be their last collaboration!
Eminem Disses Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom on ‘Bezerk’
Eminem released “Bezerk” during the MTV Awards on Aug 25. In true Em fashion, he dissed a few celebrities including Khloe Kardashian, 29 and Lamar Odom, 33. He shot a low blow about Khloe’s physical appearance, referencing her as the “ugly Kadarshian.”
All I know is I fell asleep and woke up in that Monte Carlo
With the ugly Kadarshian
Lamar, oh sorry yo, we done both set the bar low
Bars hard, drugs hard thought that’s the past
Eminem also slammed Britney Spears‘ ex, Kevin Federline, saying, “So baby make just like K-Fed and let yourself go, let yourself go.”
Ouch — harsh words, Eminem!
