Aww, Eminem’s New Music Video Is An Apology To His Mom

Eminem's video for "Headlights"
Marshall Is Totes Sorry

How did Eminem spend Mother’s Day? By releasing a music video for yet another song all about his relationship with his mother, Debbie Mathers. But unlike songs past, which focused on a mutual addiction to Valium (“My Mom”) or being a “victim of Munchhausen’s Syndrome” (“Cleaning Out My Closet”), “Headlights” is actually an apology. Directed by Spike Lee and shot in the rapper’s native “Detroit,” the video shows Eminem flipping through childhood photo albums and depicts a tearful reunion scene, a reference to the mother and son’s longtime estrangement. A sample of the lyrics: “Cause, now I know it’s not your fault and I’m not making jokes / That song I’ll no longer play at shows and I cringe every time it’s on the radio.” Aww, here’s hoping these two finally reconcile … and that an apology to Eminem’s ex, Kim Mathers, is next.
