Songfacts®:

  • Eminem has form for dissing other stars on his tunes, and on this brutal Bangladesh produced track, he mocks Lady Gaga for past rumors that she is a hermaphrodite. "Tell Lady Gaga she can quit her job at the post office / She's still a male lady," the hard-hitter Detroit MC raps, suggesting she's not so much a "lady" at all. The rapper also targets Justin Bieber on the cut, branding the young pop singer "evil" and a "demon." Some critics suggested Eminem had gone too far but the other half of Bad Meets Evil, Royce da 5'9", stuck up for his partner telling Billboard magazine: "(Eminem) has a great sense of humor. He's been doing that type of thing his whole career. It's one of the things that makes him great. I laughed when I heard it and told him he was crazy. I definitely don't think anyone should take it as an insult."
  • During an interview with Fuse TV, Eminem claimed his Lady Gaga diss was only a joke and he has nothing but respect for the New Yorker. He explained: "I think Lady GaGa, as an artist you know, she's undeniable. That was one of them things where sometimes I get a joke in my head and I kinda want to share it with the world, you know what I'm saying. So it was just one of them things man, and it's, you know, it's all in fun, it's hip-hop."
