Word of advice for the ladies: Don’t mess with Eminem’s heart. He’s a tender, emotional, and volatile guy and you don’t want him to get violent, do you?
Porn star (and Entourage guest) Sasha Grey doesn’t take that advice in the Detroit rapper’s new video for “Space Bound,” an elegant and dark jam from Em’s smash album Recovery. In the clip – filmed in California with director Joseph Kahn (Katy Perry, Dr. Dre) – the man born Marshall Mathers pours his heart out to Grey, who has moved on from their romance (ie: she’s cheating on him). The duo argue in a car on a dark and stormy night, then Em discovers her infidelities by peeking at her phone while they’re eating at a desolate diner in Nowheresville.
The couple retreat to an eerie roadside motel, then things get drastic. Let’s just say there’s a visual representation of his lyrics: “I’ve got a hole in my heart / I love you so much it hurts,” he spits. “Tears stream down both of my cheeks… I’ll blow my brains in your lap, lay here and die in your arms.”
