If only Eminem had taken his own advice. In "Lose Yourself," the breakout hit from the platinum-blond rapper's 2002 quasi-autobiographical movie 8 Mile that closed his set at the House of Blues in Atlantic City on Saturday, he advocated total immersion in his art as a means of escaping personal torment. "You better lose yourself in the music, the moment / You own it, you better never let it go," he rapped, joined by his five Detroit homeboys in D12, plus Shady Records label mates Obie Trice and Stat Quo. But at the HOB show - peopled by a well-heeled, largely white crowd who paid as much as $253 to show how down with hip-hop they were - the man who vies for the title of world's most successful rapper with his other Shady label mate, 50 Cent, appeared disengaged from his own material and ill at ease with himself.

SINCE Eminem's drama with his wife has led to some of his best music, the next album should be great. He has filed for divorce from Kim, a mere 82 days after remarrying her. "There has been a breakdown in the marriage relationship to the extent that the objects of matrimony have been destroyed, and there remains no reasonable likelihood that the marriage can be preserved," according to the filing, which was made in Macomb County, Mich.,...

The very tiresome feud between Eminem and the magazine The Source has entered the courtroom, with a ruling by a federal judge in Manhattan granting Em an injunction to prevent the mag from enclosing a CD of a 10-year-old freestyle rap in which Em disses black women with such choice bon mots as "black girls are dumb. " The Source planned to include the CD in its February issue, which will also contain extended coverage of the white rapper's alleged racism. Slim Shady's lawyers argued that releasing the song violated copyright laws.

Anyone with that much "rage" (Cover story Feb. 22) needs professional help. After all, Eminem can afford the best psychiatrists, psychologists or psychotherapists. What has our society come to when someone like this can become wealthy and admired? TERRY M. CALLEN Gloucester City, N.J. Eminem is a purveyor of hatred, intolerance and violence. His lyrics against homosexuals and women are not the message we need sent to young people. Although some will not be affected, one or two may use these lyrics as justification for gay-bashing, rape and sexual assault.

Eminem was allowed into Canada for his scheduled performance at the Skydome after all. Some Ontario politicians had tried to keep the rapper from taking the stage Thursday night at the 60,000-seat baseball stadium, saying his lyrics promote violence against women. The Michigan resident, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, has played Toronto without controversy at least twice in the last two years. On Wednesday, the Canadian province's attorney general called for Eminem to be denied entry into Canada.

I'm outraged at Eminem performing on national television on Wednesday. Recognizing his work with four Grammy nominations and turning the award ceremony into a platform for hate and violence is reprehensible. Unless the decision is reversed, my family will not watch the Grammy Awards, and I'll tell friends not to watch either. My family will not buy any of the sponsors' products, and I'll tell friends to avoid them, too. Eminem's message of hate and violence must not go unchecked.

In handing out its prestigious album-of-the-year Grammy, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has typically singled out either hopelessly bland artists such as Celine Dion or respectable, unifying figures such as Carlos Santana. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Eminem. If it's trouble that NARAS is looking for, it invited the right insolent agitator to the party. Ever since last month's announcement of nominees for the 43d Grammy Awards, to be broadcast on CBS at 8 p.m. Wednesday, the din of the culture war has been rising to a roar.

Eminem has already won two Grammys for his last record, so it's hardly surprising that he was nominated this week for four more - including Album of the Year. The Marshall Mathers LP, after all, has gone septuple-platinum and the rap artist, pronounced "arguably the most compelling figure in all of pop music" by Newsweek, has been hailed by many critics as "a wizard at wordplay. " Of course, he has had his share of critics. His violent songs - some in which he raps of brutally killing his wife and raping countless women - have caused many to label him a misogynist.

The Zombies have long been known for opulent melodies, unpredictable key changes, and a smart, soulful sound embracing jazz, R&B, blues, psychedelia, and classical nuances, from their smash singles (1964's "She's Not There," 1965's "Tell Her No," and 1969's "Time of the Season") to their chamber-pop, hippie-hymnal epic, 1968's Odessey and Oracle , an album that led to the band's breakup. At the heart of all this were Colin Blunstone's breathy vocals and principal composer Rod Argent's organ and piano.

When Aaron Dontez Yates, the speed rapper/producer known as Tech N9ne, created the Strange Music label in 1999, he must have known his life's vocation. Tech N9ne's sound consistently has been odd yet alluring - quick, industrialized hip-hop with incendiary, socially conscious, sci-fantasy lyrics that would make Harlan Ellison green with Martian envy. And Yates' rapid, chopping style makes Tech N9ne a dog whose bark might just be as bad as its bite. Tech N9ne played the Trocadero on Wednesday night, with future-forward electro-rappers such as MURS and Chris Webby along for the ride.

WASHINGTON - In a case that could further define the limits of free speech online, the Supreme Court heard arguments Monday in the appeal by an Allentown man who claimed First Amendment protection following his arrest for threatening on Facebook to kill his wife and an FBI agent. A U.S. District Court jury sitting in Philadelphia convicted Anthony Elonis in 2011 of violating a federal law barring threats over the Internet, mail, or telecommunications systems. Elonis claimed that his posts were a means of self-expression and that he was entitled to the same license employed by rap musicians using violent images in their recordings.

Mike Campbell arrived five minutes before his 10 a.m. practice at Collingswood's Sam Coursen Wrestling Center on the day after Christmas. He was wearing an orange Flyers hooded sweatshirt with a dirt mark on the front and corresponding orange and black pajama pants. Campbell, a senior and defending District 28 champion, spoke in a quiet, unemotional tenor that reflected the slow pace at which he walked into the dimly lit gym. Coach Dechlin Moody described the two-year captain as soft-spoken and well-mannered, not a vocal kid and definitely not the kind of personality to come in yelling.

When popular artists like Detroit rapper Eminem , Dutch deejay Tiesto , and dance-music boss Derek "Pretty Lights" Smith talk to their fans online or sell them gear, the software applications, customer service, even the clothing orders are routed through five suites in a converted townhouse row in Society Hill near the end of South Street. That's home to Fame House , a 26-person firm bought last month by the publicly traded electronic-music events manager SFX Entertainment of New York - it runs the Mysteryland festival and the Beatport music-download store, among other live and virtual music portals - to serve as a "digital hub" for the ways music makers reach and sell to their fans.

Co-exec-produced by Dr. Dre and Rick Rubin, the new CD by Eminem, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (2 discs; Aftermath ), is a sequel of sorts to The Marshall Mathers LP (2000). The latter gave us some of the 13-time Grammy-winning rapper's darkest, cleverest, and most ruthlessly combative songs, including the hilarious, identity-flummoxing hit "The Real Slim Shady. " Many consider it to be Eminem's best album (though a sound case can be made for the previous year's The Slim Shady LP )

PopSugar reports that after Robert Pattinson moved out of Kristen Stewart 's house, Kristen went over to Taylor's Beverly Hills home to hang out.

Tattle would not guess that those two would be tight, but Taylor knows breakups and Us says that both she and Kristen are pals with Taylor Lautner - Kristen co-starred with him in the "Twilight" films, Taylor "dated" him for a few months way back in 2009.
