Eminem’s Bizarre Star Trek Homage

Eminem’s unapologetic celebrity bashing isn’t exactly anything new, but the video released last week for the first single of his new album, “We Made You,” is actually kind of interesting (if at times kind of offensive) in that it’s almost like a pop culture time capsule for the last couple of years. One mostly about celebrity couples.

Though even if you’re not big on tabloid fodder, you might be amused by the rapper’s impersonation of Spock – on the bridge of the Enterprise, spying on Jessica Alba in the shower, and battling Samantha Ronson ala “Amok Time” while Lindsay Lohan watches from a nearby cage. There’s also a nod to Guitar Hero and Transformers.

If you missed them, the list of Eminem’s “Rock of Love”-style suitors is as follows (alphabetically): Jessica Alba, Jennifer Anniston, Ellen DeGeneres, Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Sarah Palin, Portia de Rossi, Samantha Ronson, Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears, and Amy Winehouse. And in case you didn’t notice, Britney Spears is a man, though quite a good likeness, I think. Also, Sarah Palin is portrayed by the same woman who starred in the “Nailin’ Paylin” porn film.
