The Independent editor calls Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” lyrics embarrassing

Kevin E G Perry, the editor of The Independent publication, listed the clunkiest and most baffling song lyrics of all time and included one line from Eminem’s “Love The Way You Lie” song, featuring Rihanna.

Kevin says: Marshall Mathers is without question one of the most talented and inventive lyricists of his or any other generation, and he has written countless great bars. Even Em can drop a howler, however, like this physically painful pun from “Love The Way You Lie”, his 2010 collaboration with Rihanna,” regarding the following lines: “Now you get to watch her leave out the window/ Guess that’s why they call it window pane.”

At some time in February 2021, Generation Z started a social media campaign on TikTok to cancel Eminem over the controversial lyrics of the song “Love The Way You Lie” but it did not work.
