Memo To Eminem: There’s No Reason To Fear Weird Al

Michael Deeds of the Idaho Statesman is sharing his mixed thoughts on following the rapper’s refusal to allow Weird Al to shoot a video for his new song, ‘Couch Potato,’ which is a parody of Eminem´s Oscar-winning ‘Lose Yourself.’ Deeds says, “On the one hand, I find him irresistible. He’s a wickedly clever, highly imaginative lyricist. He also has a special, intangible star quality. On the other hand, I would never want to hang with the dude. Whether he´s flipping the bird to the universe after dueting with Sir Elton John, or waving a handgun around in a Detroit parking lot, Eminem exudes the persona of a self-centered, 30-year-old child: He feels like the kind of person that can dish it out but can’t take it.”
