Kristen Stewart is notorious for appearing moody at movie premieres and other Hollywood soirees. When the former "Twilight" star does crack a smile, it's like a rare bird sighting.

A wrecking crew in Detroit, Mich., demolished Eminem's childhood home on Monday after it was ravaged by a fire earlier this month.
 
Representatives at Michigan Land Bank were forced by law to demolish the building and said in a statement last week: "The condition of the property post-fire presents a safety hazard that the Land Bank is responsible for removing. The goal is to demolish and clean up the site, so neighborhood safety and order can be restored."
 
The rapper featured pictures of the property on his albums "The Marshall Mathers LP" and recent release "The Marshall Mathers LP 2."

And yes, the numbers are gargantuan.  While Eminem was unable to beat the 968,000 copies that Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience, he did sell 792,000 copies.  The former second-largest debut of 2013 was Drake’s Nothing Was The Same (658,000 copies), which now settles for third-largest debut.  Eminem is the biggest news, but not the sole news on the Albums chart this week.

Review: 'Marshall Mathers LP 2' - Eminem Keeps Hip-Hop Alive And Well On MMLP2

November 5th, 2013 10:47am EST
Marshall Mathers LP 2
It seems like a decade since hip-hop was considered to be “dead” – well it’s nearly been a decade actually.  Nas went so far to memorialize the genre on his 2006 album Hip Hop is Dead.  Again, in 2013, we have a rap vet who takes a similar perspective that the genre has fallen on hard times due to playing up dumb, meaningless clichés.  While it is arguable (depending on who you ask) whether Eminem is truly the “Rap God” as he asserts, what is true is that rap definitely has its less ‘artistic’ MC’s. In other words, rap has went so ‘stupid’ it’s gone plumb ‘dumb’! Sure, Eminem is known for h...

Every awards show has growing pains, especially during its first show. Hey, even the Academy Awards has issues after 85. However, the online streaming show was at times hectic and at others completely bereft of content. For example, at one point comedic hosts Jason Schwartzman and Reggie Watts were given two crying babies while they were trying to interview Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

How Eminem Devastates The Competition On 'Rap God'

October 21st, 2013 2:30pm EDT
Eminem
In rap music in 2013, everyone seems to want to be the ‘Savior’.  Kanye West proclaimed himself to be a ‘god’ on the blatantly titled “I Am A God”, even foreshadowing beforehand on Yeezus at the end of “Black Skinhead”. A$AP Ferg even titled his debut Trap Lord.  Argue the difference between lord and god all you want, but they seem nearly, if not ‘one in the same’.  Jay-Z joined the boat as well on Magna Carta…Holy Grail.  Why is everyone trying to be God? I’m unsure, but there sure have been plenty of ‘gods’ this year.

A couple of years ago, it was fine to be merely a ‘king’ (P$C’s “I’m a...

Eminem was giving hints about the second single off his upcoming album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, but an early leak forced the rapper to release "Rap God" - and it's getting rave reviews.

Whereas his Bezerk video was a callback to the 80s, in Rap God Eminem takes on all newcomers with a simple backing track that allows for some amazing vocal work to shine.

"I'm beginning to feel like a Rap God, Rap God / All my people from the front to the back nod, back nod," is the simple hook, but in between Eminem lays down minutes-long verses. The song itself clocks in at 6 minutes.
