'Sometimes I get a joke in my head and I kinda want to share it with the world,' the Slim Shady says when quizzed about his jab at the Mother Monster.
Eminem has spoken for the very first time about his lines in Bad Meets Evil's song "A Kiss" which takes a jab at fellow artist Lady GaGa. Despite calling the outlandish singer a "male lady" in the track, the Slim Shady insists he has nothing but respect for her.
"I think Lady GaGa, as an artist you know, she's undeniable, you know," he said to Fuse TV. Talking about his diss to the "Born This Way" singer, he said, "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."
Mr. Marshall Mathers continued, "So it was just one of them things man, and it's you know it's all in fun, it's hip hop. It is what it is, but as far as an artist, she's dope, she's an incredible talent." He addressed the issue at the backstage of Bonnaroo festival when doing an interview along with Royce da 5'9".
