Eminem song about Mariah Carey angers husband Nick Cannon

Chicago Tribune - May 12, 2009

Once upon a time, Mariah Carey and Eminem were an item. And, apparently, he wants her back.

Eminem and Carey dated for about six months in 2001, but, according to Us Weekly, the rapper's new tune, "Bagpipes From Baghdad," includes lyrics instructing Carey's hubby, Nick Cannon, to "back up" -- which doesn't make Mr. Mimi very happy. Cannon's blog posts over the weekend seem guarded: "Not only has his music not evolved, but also homeboy is still obsessed with my wife."

Entertainment Weekly cites Cannon's accusations that Eminem is racially insensitive: "I realized that this so-called man has just disrespected ... one of the world's most significantly influential artists, one of the most notable BLACK females of our time, the incredibly cherished, globally loved and world-embraced woman of color, Mariah Carey."
