“In my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it”

The year of messing up, being called out, and doubling back on those mess-ups continues. The latest: Eminem admits he went “too far” by using a homophobic slur on his song “Fall.”

The song came out a couple of weeks ago and was criticized shortly after its release. On it, he disses Tyler the Creator, rapping: “Tyler create nothin’, I see why you called yourself a f***t, bitch/ It’s not just ‘cause you lack attention/ It’s ‘cause you worship D’12’s balls, you’re sack-religious.” Now, in a recent interview with Sway, he admits his word choice was wrong.

Eminem says he was angry when he said the line about Tyler. Specifically, he grew frustrated about the comments Tyler made about his music. His “breaking point” was when he criticized his song “Walk on Water” with Beyoncé. “I was like, really? What the fuck,” Eminem said. “You guys were just on tour with us, we hung out, we kicked it, made jokes.”

Despite how mad Tyler’s actions made him, he goes on to express regret. “I think the word that I called him on that song was one of the things where I felt like this might be too far,” Eminem says. “Because in my quest to hurt him, I realize that I was hurting a lot of other people by saying it… It was one of the things that I kept going back to and going ‘I don’t feel right with this.’”

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.



But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.


The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
