Eminem ain't running scared

19 January 2001

Eminem's spokesperson has denied claims the rapper cancelled a public appearance in Manchester over fears gay protesters would storm the event.

Reports today allege Eminem pulled out of his first-ever UK record signing, planned for an HMV store in Manchester, over concerns members of GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) would gatecrash the store in a repeat of last year's protest outside the American MTV Awards in New York.

However, a record company spokesperson today told MTV the decision to scrap the signing did not come from the rapper himself. Instead, they say the Manchester signing was never a certainty due to time constraints - the real Slim Shady is only in the country for three days.

Better hope you've got a ticket to one of Eminem's three UK concerts - in Manchester on February 8 and London on February 9 and 10 - cos he's not doing any other public appearances.
