Eminem is bigger than the Beatles

Getty Images Man, Mariah Carey is gonna be peeved.

Eminem is the best selling artist of the decade. Slim (whom I have pictured here with Lady Gaga just because I love the expression on his face) came out on top for the 2000s with 32.2 million combined in sales, according to Nielsen Soundscan's decade end sales report (via Rolling Stone). He had two albums in the decade's Top 10: 'The Marshall Mathers LP,' coming in fourth with 10,195,000 sold, and 'Eminem Show' was fifth with 9,789,000.

The figures were tallied through November 1 so, as the Detroit Free Press points out, could change. But, really, they can probably only shift in Em's favour since his 'Relapse: Refill' is dropping December 21.

Now who's a press conference and who's a conversation Mariah "Didn't Even Make the Top Ten" Carey? Just kidding. I like Mariah. She has a lovely voice and I even like the rumours of her alleged crazy diva demands, like getting hotels to change the toilet seats and ordering 20 white kittens for her stage show. That level of ego is kind of awesome. I even kind of liked the movie 'Glitter' and NOBODY like that movie. I think I might be the only person on Earth who actually got CHOKED UP when (spoiler) Billie's boyfriend got killed by the Terrence Howard character before they had a chance to reunite and then she discovers that, through some kind of magical, psychic mind-meld, they COMPOSED THE SAME SONG before he died. And she never got the chance to tell him that she loved him! That's so sad. Anyway…

Eminem storms out of MTV Movie Awards

Getty Images Eminem stormed out of the MTV Movie awards Sunday night after an unfortunate encounter with Sacha Baron Cohen's butt crack. And we've got video!

Sacha, in costume as his gay fashionista character Bruno (the subject of a soon to be released movie), appears dressed in an angel costume and suspended from wires. He then seems to suffer a contraption malfunction and lands upside down in Em's lap, jockstrap in Em's face. Hilarity ensues, Em is heard cursing: "Are you f*ckin' serious?" His entourage disentangles him and he storms out of the theatre.

Nick Cannon: Eminem hates black people

Getty Images Mr. Mariah Carey is supermad at Eminem.

Nick Cannon was dismayed to find, when Em's Relapse leaked onto the Internet, that he and his beloved wife had joined the ranks of the rapper's targets. On the track Bagpipes from Baghdad, Em calls Mariah a very nasty word and says "Nick Cannon you pr*ck, I wish you luck with the f**kin wh*re. Every minute there's a sucker born." 

As you might recall, at one point Em (Marshall Mathers/Slim Shady) claimed to have dated Mariah but she denied it.

Eminem spoofs Amy Winehouse, Jessica Simpson

Getty Images Eminem is back with the first single off his forthcoming Relapse album, We Made You. And, right out of the gate, he's mocking everyone you hate to love or love to hate, His targets include but are not limited to: Bret Michaels, Jessica Simpson, Sarah Palin (portrayed by porn actress Lisa Ann, star of Who's Nailin' Paylin?), Lindsay Lohan and Sam Ronson, Kim Kardashian (and her gigantic butt), and Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder Civil.

Good to have you back dude. I see you have your barrel full of fish and your harpoon. The video for We Made You is excellently directed, crazy paced and hi-freaking-larious. It's awesome. Unapologetically targeting celebrities is one of the things Eminem does really well. His prey is easy (including himself) but the lyrics are, as usual, quite clever. The pop cultural visual references -- which include Star Trek, Jailhouse Rock, Rain Man and Transformers (I think) -- are plenty.
