“Because I’m gay,” Marshal Mathers said with a deadpan face.
During his surprise cameo in the film, The Interview, Eminem joked about “coming out” to talk show host, James Franco’s character, Dave Skylark.
Em didn’t wince as he told Skylark that his alleged homophobic rhymes were written to hide his gayness.
In the film, which was released on Christmas day, Eminem told Franco’s stunned character, “I’m more shocked that people haven’t figured it out yet. I’ve been playing gay peek-a-boo for years. I’ve pretty much been leaving a bread crumb trail of gayness.”
It’s all satire, but Eminem delivers compellingly.
