Liane Hansen speaks with Anthony DeCurtis, contributing editor at Rolling Stone Magazine, about the controversy surrounding the Grammy nomination of Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP for Album of the Year. Parents and gay-rights groups have criticized Eminem for his gay-bashing, homicidal, and misogynistic lyrics. {STATIONS NOTE: 0:52 into the piece, an excerpt of music from "The Marshall Mathers LP" is heard, including the line: My words are like a dagger with a jagged edge/That'll stab you in the head whether you're a fag or lez/Or the homosex, hermaph or a trans-a-vest/Pants or dress/Hate fags? The answer's yes}
