Eminem is once again at the center of controversy thanks to the music video for his new single, ‘Space Bound,’ in which the rapper is shown shooting himself in the head.
The Joseph Kahn-directed video, filmed in February, follows multiple versions of Eminem as he grows suspicious of his girlfriend (played by porn star Sasha Grey) who, according to her text messages, appears to be cheating on him.
The actual suicide comes after a rather violent confrontation between Eminem and Grey inside a motel room, which may or may not have actually happened. In fact, the entire video is left to interpretation, as it rewinds to the very beginning at the end.
What did you make of the video? Did Eminem’s character really kill himself? And did Eminem create something meaningful here? Or did he go too far?
