With the massive numbers of US citizens who have served in the military over the last decade and a half, Veteran's Day this year has taken on a particularly poignant significance. Consequently, the number of tributes to veterans has been unprecedented, so much so that even a public figure such as Emimem, not known for his cuddly public image, also took part. One was tempted to admire the guy, until he had to go and ruin the occasion with his family-unfriendly profanity.
I agree that Eminem should have kept the profanity out of his Veteran's Day Concert. With families watching the concert, using profanity was disrespectful and inappropriate. The profanity adds nothing to his performance and I believe that the audience would have received the performance better had Eminem kept the profanity out of the concert.
Yes, Eminem should have kept the profanity out of his Veteran's Day Concert. Veteran's Day is to celebrate the soldiers that gave or risked their lives for our country. I believe more respect should be provided to them, and by using profanity this is not the level of respect I would expect.
Expecting Em not to swear is like asking Marilyn Manson to sing "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" and other various hymns. SERIOUSLY? Eminem has been on the national entertainment circuit for the past 15 or so years now. We all know what his message is. If you want gospel singers, you should've invited the Winans.
Trying to tell Eminem that he can not sing the way he is used to is like telling Mariah Carey to not sing. Period. He is who he is and we need to accept that when he gets up on stage in front of a live studio audience. Do not like it, do not listen.
