Is Eminem the Detroit Lions’ Taylor Swift?
Taylor who? Detroit has their very own celebrity musician who is a huge Detroit Lions fan, so we don’t need Taylor Swift dating one of our Lions to get attention at our games. Eminem showed up to the Detroit Lions’ home game on Sunday (Oct. 8) with his family. They sat in a luxury box and cheered the team on to victory. The Lions put on a show for Slim Shady, too, as they pretty much clobbered the Carolina Panthers. Check out a tweet from the action below. It begs the question: Is Eminem the Detroit Lions’ Taylor Swift?
Maybe. He has Grammy Awards and is one of the best-known rappers in the world. Wherever he goes, the cameras follow. He also got fans really pumped up about the Lions on Sunday, much like Taylor did for Kansas City Chiefs fans in past weeks. Now, I’m just waiting for Eminem to do a “Monday Night Football” rap or something like what Carrie Underwood does with her “Sunday Night Football” song.
So, when it comes to Grammy wins, Eminem is actually on top. Taylor Swift has 12 Grammy Awards, which, of course, is impressive. But, Eminem has, get this, a whopping 15 Grammy Awards. Detroit for the win. And, Eminem just has some of the best hip-hop songs and videos ever and Mom’s Spaghetti. Oh, and another similarity is just how many times the camera flashed over to Eminem during the Lions game, much like when Taylor is at the Chiefs games.
