    okay so when I first heard the song I felt like a lot of you who are saying its too poppy isand I couldn't really listen to it more than once after the first time I heard it until a couple weeks ago I started to listen to it my rotation of music on my phone and I can't hate the song because he is such a good lyricist! yes its a pop beat it's happy when you think a song called the monster. This shouldn't surprise you if you know Eminem to know he's going to go out the norm that in addition to the fact that he's no longer in a dark place in his life so therefore since he makes music on emotion and his life he's not going to make dark songs like you are expecting him, like he did on the original Mathers LP

  • ananymous

    Haters gonna hate. ive scanned these hip hop sites and theres nothing but a bunch of losers constantly finding a worse way to shit on Eminem again and again no matter what he does. THe mans got mad respect from his piers and much more fans then haters. You cant stop this guy. excited to see how many 35 year old men call me fag in 1 2 3...

      I liked Rap God and Bezerk. I thought the COD song was ok but Monster just sucks like a typical pop song. The title monster should be used for something dark like Love the Way you lie, not a maroon 5 pop beat.

    Why is everyone bashing those who dislike the song? They have the right to their opinion. Doesn't mean eminem is no longer on of the best but it doesn't mean you have to like everything he does. I gave my reasons why I disliked and yet they dismiss mine like its no big deal.

    Yeah, this obviously is not the highlight of MMLP2...but its a genius way to combine insane lyricism with a pop beat that will sell like crzy...if you disagree, let me ask you a question. How many times can you rhyme something with the word Newsweek? In the first verse, he does it 13 times. be choosey my music excuse me blew, see confusing Bruce Lee loose leaf abused ink blew steam ooh wee used mink lose sheep two sheep Kool Keith I don't care who you are. That's insane lyricism. No pop song in the world is gonna provide that type of skill

    • Shayden2kz

      Exactly! as he said it as a no interview he likes to his is on courses but he also enjoys when someone gives him a chorus he sees what he could do he took a simple pop song and turned it into this phenomenon reaching so many genres its so relatable and so many different ways and his pure skill and talent regardless if you like is type of music or not. a lot of things have changed about him and his music over the last 5 or 6 years the one thing that has not is his ability and skill and lyricism he is hip hop he eats sleeps breathes hip hop every day I would kill to see his notebooks

    • j

      Combined with the fact that this is a business and he knows exactly what the fuck he's doing by making songs like that. Who else is doing those numbers?

  • don

    Beyonce and drake run this shit! Eminem wack as fuck,go ask drake for some help. Corny ass garbage music with no substance. This song is a hit cause rihanna is on the chorus,without her you be doing some do doing doing doing corny azz like that hooks. Rihanna made this bitch,she owns this fucker!

      Eminem is shit! Deal with it! He has no substance,he sounds like a robot when he sings. This fucker sounds like kesha and katy perry when he sings! He's songs aren't memorable,he turned slaughterhouse into the biggest joke in the world! He dissed boy bands and now he's making songs that they would be proud of! Fuck this idiot,he's no better than vanilla ice!

      don is a fucking iditot who lies about everything. Eminem is better than those sellout fags you named.

    • fuck don

      Drake will never be in the top ten best rappers ever em is and hes a better lyricist Fuck Outta you can never compare drake to Eminem ever ever ever its like comparing Justin Bieber to Michael Jackson

    • don

      If rihanna is pop what the fuck is eminem doing making a song with her?? He needed the help! He puts out garbage and people buy it. Look at the critics,they think he's garbage too. Kanye puts out art,beyonce puts out art,drake art,justin timberlake art. Eminem does some bagpipes from baghdad bullshit and you fuckers buy that shit?? You call that art? When was the last time he made anything of substance?? People dissed yeezus but the critics gave it a gold star,because its art. Face it eminem is selling verbal diarrhoea and you fuckers drinking it up! He can sell all the albums in the world but he'll never be drake!!

    • G12

      eminem had to sell out at age 26 to get where he is, now he fell off so hard hes TERRIBLE, lost all my respect, on the other hand DMX never sold out and shits on anyone out there. realest nigga out!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Johhny Blaze

      saying rhianna is better then eminem? then WHAT THE FUCK are you doing on a HIP HOP website? rhianna is a pop star, eminem is the epitome of lyricism, which is one of the key components to hip-hop...you sir, don, have no knowledge to what good music is. why dont you go to mtv.com if you like pop music

      I know it's hard to believe for somebody who probably steals music all the time, but there are people that actually support the artists that put in quality work over the years.

    I'm not a pop song hater, I like a lot of pop music. But this song isn't even a good pop song, it's extremely mediocre. If 50 Cent or a black rapper came out with this same bullshit, Rihanna and all, it wouldn't even be half as popular. There's nothing special about this at all, it does nothing for me. I'm not impressed

    • Chris Etrata

      Doesn't mean this has to sound like shit. BTW, Stan sampled a verse from a dido song and she just supported it. Not the same thing as having her over.

    • sufur222

      Kizman: (cough) he made "Stan" with Dido, who is very much a pop singer (cough)

    • BP

      that's "stuck in the past nigga" talk who gives a motherfuck what Eminem would or wouldn't have done 13 years ago, he coulda said fuck mormons and y'all would still be quoting him on it. people change in 13 years. em probably real chill with rihanna in real life, and y'all on that "he said she said 10 yrs ago" ish. I don't even like the song that much but people been sayin this shit since recovery which doesn't make bloody sense

    • Chris Etrata

      This is coming from an eminem stan but this song sucks. It's basically "Show Goes on" from lupe fiasco with a pop beat that could have fit in a maroon 5 song, a shitty pop singer, and the lyrics talk about fame. The ironic thing is that Eminem would have dissed rihanna in 2000.

    • Kizman

      Gotta co-sign that. Em would have NEVER made pop songs with pop singers back in the day...

      Even tho Eminem ain't a new artist, he wack as fuck and he a puppet too.

    • Big 18th Street Gang, E'z up to the homiez worldwide!

      I'm just saying, homie... Don't spend your hard earned fucking money on these puppets/wack ass artists. Just download the shit. That's if your into new shit. If you spending your money on golden-era hip hop, you can download that too if your a strictly MP3's type person. I personally, like to buy the CD or vinyl. My collection is dope as fuck! I own timeless albums such as the rare Raekwon "Cuban Linx" CD with the purple case with "Shallah Raekwon" signature on the disc and Tribe's "Beats, Rhymes, Life" with the holographic cover. Start collecting the real shit, if you not already! It's good solid advice. As I said, don't waste your hard earned money on these wack ass so called artists. All these new clowns are nothing but a bunch of puppets. Your welcome.
