Every Celebrity Eminem Has Ever Dissed

With a new album comes plenty of new swipes at the stars.

There’s a moment on Eminem’s new album where he seems to have run out of stars to shoot down. “So, who’s left? Lady Gaga?” he asks. “Messed with the Bieber. Nah, F with Christina, I ain’t fucking with either Jessica neither—Simpson or Alba—my album’s just sicker than struck with the fever.”

Earlier in the track (“Evil Twin”), he gripes with more than a touch of self-awareness, “I’m frustrated ‘cause ain’t no more *NSYNC, now I’m all outta wack, I’m all out of Backstreet Boys to call out and attack.”

But if he was stuck for famous people to diss when he wrote those lines, it was only temporary. Enough stars get hit with lyrical shrapnel on The Marshall Mathers LP 2, that we were compelled to update The Atlantic’s old catalog of every celebrity Eminem has ever disrespected. All in the service, of course, of better understanding the world’s most popular troll.

Below the photo gallery is an alphabetized list. Strong language included, obviously. Let us know if we missed anyone.
