Critics’ Takes:

“Various novelists, filmmakers, video-game designers, comedians and comic book authors also work the same territory, but Eminem is particularly alert to parents’ fears about the secret corrupting powers of pop.” – Jon Pareles, The New York Times

“A somewhat positive message to cap off one of the more iconic videos of our generation. In a way, we should all strive to be like Slim Shady, boasting a carefree attitude, and not letting the perception of others dictate the way we think and feel. ” – Mark Radlund, Super Metal World
