After Eminem's most recent lyrics scandal, we decided to take a look at lyrics by artists that we are totally guilty of dancing to when they come up on your Spotify playlist, or singing at full volume on your drive home. Little did we know that a lot of these artists are throwing some serious shade at the females of the world. Take a look at the lyrics we think belong in the hall of dishonour. Spoiler alert: anything that sounds the least bit rapey or jokes about domestic violence are never a good idea.
1. Eminem "SHADY CXVPHER"
"But I may fight for gay rights, especially if they dyke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice / Play nice? / B*tch 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 / Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens."
2. Chris Brown "Biggest Fan"
"When you scream I need / To pull your body closer / Let me sex you baby / Girl you better not change your mind / No is not an option... I'm 'a take what's mine."
3. Ray J "I Hit It First"
”I had her head going North and her ass going south but now the b*tch chose to go West.”
4. Robin Thicke "Blurred Lines"
"I hate these blurred lines / I know you want it / I hate them lines / I know you want it / I hate them lines / I know you want it / But you're a good girl / The way you grab me / Must wanna get nasty / Go ahead, get at me."
5. Rick Ross "She Doesn't Even Know It"
“Put Molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it / Took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it.”
6. Rolling Stones "Brown Sugar"
“How come you taste so good?/ Just like a black girl should.”
7. Brian McFadden "Just The Way You Are (Drunk At The Bar)"
"I like you just the way you are / Drunk as shit dancing at the bar / I like it, and I can't wait to get you home so I can do some damage / I like you just the way you are / Jump in the back seat of my car, cos I like it and I can't wait to get you home / so I can take advantage."
8. Taylor Swift "Better Than Revenge"
"She’s not a saint / And she’s not what you think / She’s an actress, whoa / She’s better known / For the things that she does / On the mattress, whoa / Soon she’s gonna find / Stealing other people’s toys / On the playground won’t / Make you many friends / She should keep in mind / She should keep in mind / There is nothing I do better than revenge.”
9. Snoop Dogg "B*tches Ain't Sh*t"
“B*tches ain’t sh*t but hoes and tricks / Lick on these nuts and suck the d*ck.”
10. Jadakiss "F*ckin' Or What?"
“It’s damn near four in the morning, ain’t sh*t to discuss / Til you ask which d*ck do you suck."
11. Nickleback "Figured You Out"
"I like your pants around your feet / And I like the dirt that's on your knees / And I like the way you still say please / While you're looking up at me / You're like my favourite damn disease."
12. Usher "Trading Places"
"Now we gonna do this thing a lil different tonight / U gonna come over and pick me up in your ride / U gon knock and then u gon wait / Ooo u gon take me on a date / U gonna open my door and ima reach over and open yours / Gon pay for dinner take me to see a movie / And whisper in my ear I bet you really wanna do me / Girl now take me home and get up in Benz / Pour me up a shot and force me to the bed / I'm always on the top tonight I'm on the bottom / Cause we trading places / When I cant take no more, tell me you ain't stopping / Cause we trading places / Stay tuned for part 2 / You been me I been u / But we gon switch this thing back / Ima put it on your ass."
