#BehindTheMusic With Eminem And Elton John's Hit Single

When it comes to Eminem, what song is greater than 'Stan? '"Stan" has been called one of Eminem's best songs and is considered one of his signature songs. But do you know the true reason behind the song? Lets find out!

Rapper Eminem and pop legend Elton John have shared a close friendship since first coming together for a duet of Eminem's song "Stan" at the 2001 Grammys.

As many industry observers expected, news of Eminem’s Grammy honors (even before the duet announcement) triggered a storm of protest from activist groups such as the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), which released a statement saying that it was ”appalled that John would share the stage with Eminem, whose words and actions promote hate and violence” against gays and lesbians.

Controversy aside, the duet is likely to benefit its participants more than it will harm them — especially the real Slim Shady, who’s up for four Grammys. ”Eminem obviously gains more from the pairing as it almost puts a seal of approval on the rapper’s claim that his lyrics are not meant to be taken seriously.”

Seeing the 28 year old rapper paired with the pop music elder can only boost his reputation. ”Eminem is going to be tapping people who probably never would have paid attention to him. Moms and dads will definitely be watching that duet!”

Other industry observers point out that John has a history of ignoring politics in favor of his musical tastes. ”Back when there was that huge controversy over Axl Rose’s antigay comments on the Guns N Roses song ‘One In A Million,’ Elton John went ahead and performed with him at a Queen benefit show.”
