Madonna has come to the defence of Eminem

Postby pinkGLAM » Thu Feb 22, 2001 7:15 pm

Madonna has come to the defence of Eminem in a letter written to the Los Angeles Times just prior to the rapper's appearance at the Grammys, where he is nominated for four awards. Signing herself 'Mrs.Richie', and calling the words of US President, George W Bush, 'much more offensive', she says - 'I like the fact that Eminem is brash and angry and politically incorrect. At least he has an opinion. He's stirring things up, he's making people's blood boil, he's reflecting on what's going on in society right now. This is what art's supposed to do,' adding - 'after all, he's just a boy.'

Other high profile artists who have written to the paper, at the publication's invitation, include Stevie Wonder and Elton John who praised Eminem's latest album, 'The Marshall Mathers LP', wrote - 'There is far more humour on the album than people think. It appeals to my English black sense of humour'. Stevie Wonder, holder of many a Grammy, wrote - 'For someone to say, this is a disgrace to the Grammys, come on. There was a time when blues was called a disgrace.' This reaction stems from recent comments made by songwriter Jimmy Webb who seems to think that Eminem's appearance at the Grammy Awards tonight (21st) could devalue the ceremony's 'moral credibility'.
