Controversial rapper Eminem, one of music's biggest bad boys, is seen as killing his girlfriend and then taking his own life in the new music video for 'Space Bound'.
Eminem, whose work is known for graphic scenes and violent portrayals, as well as his depiction of split personality in his videos, has gone several steps beyond for this video.
He plays two versions of himself in Space Bound, from his smash hit Recovery album, one who discovers his girlfriend has been cheating on him and another seemingly reflecting on the situation, reports the Daily Mail.
At the end of the video Eminem is seen as hallucinating and then strangling his lover to death after he discovers she is cheating on him. The girlfriend in the video is played by porn star Sasha Grey.
He calls the girlfriend a ‘blood sucking succubus’ when he finds out she has been cheating on him. He finds this out as he checks her mobile phone messages. But then he finds it is his imagination, and kills himself by shooting.
The lyrics are graphic as well. I'm trying to stop you from breathing, I put both hands on your throat, I sit on top of you squeezing, he raps.
Again, Tears stream down both of my cheeks, then I let you just go and just give. ... And before I put that gun to my temple I told you this.
