Eminem Takes a Crack at Heath Ledger


As you can no doubt discern, Eminem's Relapse has been getting a lot of spins here at Vulture HQ today. Now that we've listened to the whole thing through, we're starting to pay closer attention to the lyrics on subsequent spins. In the song "My Mom," Eminem describes a scenario in which he fights a losing battle with his mother about taking prescription pills, one in which he references a certain 2009 Oscar winner: "All right, Ma, you win / I don't feel like arguin' / I'll do it, pop it, gobble it, and start bobblin' / Stumble, hobble, tumble, slipped, fell in bed / with a bottle of meds / and a Heath Ledger bobblehead." Too soon?
