Eminem Apologizes To Mom In New Song “Headlights”


Despite Eminem’s past lyrics that dissed his mom in songs like “Cleanin’ Out My Closet, Eminem apologizes to his mom in new song “Headlights”.

In the 2002 single “Cleanin’ Out My Closet”, Eminem expressed his disgust with his mother at the time by calling her a “selfish b***h” and saying he hoped she would “burn in hell.”

The new song is quite the contrast as he apologizes and shares his regrets of making the song. He also added that he will no longer perform the song.

“To this day we remain estranged and I hate it though / ‘Cause you ain’t even get  to witness your grand baby’s grow / But I’m sorry mama for ‘Cleaning Out My  Closet,’ at the time I was angry / Rightfully maybe so, never meant that far to  take it though, ’cause / Now I know it’s not your fault, and I’m not making  jokes / That song I no longer play at shows and I cringe every time it’s on the  radio.”

The title of the song refers to the rapper’s memory of the headlights on his mom’s car as she drove away on their last meeting.

It sounds like the rapper is looking to let go of the rocky past with his mother that included public insults and law suits to establish a healthy relationship.

“Headlights” will appear on The Marshall Mathers LP”, set to release on November 5.
