Eminem vs. Women: 13 Ladies He's Bashed in Raps
Lana Del Rey is the latest in a string of female targets.
Eminem has been known for his controversial rhymes since his major-label debut in 1999, but in a just-released cypher promoting the upcoming Shady Records compilation album, he crossed a new line: He invoked the name of Ray Rice, using the disgraced ex-NFL player's assault of then-fiancee Janay Rice in the name of wordplay.
"I may fight for gay rights, especially if the dyke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice/ Play nice? Bitch I'll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance/ Till her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens."
Why Del Rey is in Eminem's crosshairs is anyone's guess, but she's hardly his first female target. Below, check out all the notable women who have felt Em's lyrical wrath over the years. (Note: Some of these ladies have been mentioned more than once in Eminem's song, but we singled out one particularly rough lyric.)

"Christina Aguilera better switch me chairs/ So I can sit next to Carson Daly and Fred Durst, and hear 'em argue over who she gave head to first/ You little bitch, put me on blast on MTV: 'Yeah, he's cute, but I think he's married to Kim, hee-hee!'/ I should download her audio on MP3 and show the whole world how you gave Eminem VD."
