Eminem Loves Putting Porn Stars In His Videos

As you may know by now, Eminem has shot a new video for “Space Bound,” the fourth single from his “Recovery” album, that stars the award-winning adult actress Sasha Grey. Grey, an aspiring musician and now fully clothed actress, takes on the leading lady role playing Eminem’s love interest in the video, which hits screens tomorrow.

But Sasha is by no means Em’s first porn-y leading lady. She is, in fact, his fourth.

How artists choose their muses, we’ll never know. So it’s just a waste of time to ponder why Eminem continually taps porn stars for his music videos (we could probably venture a few guesses though). What we do know, though, is that these adventurous muses often lead him to the top of the charts. Let’s take a look back at Em’s favorite “actresses.”


“Without Me” (2002) featuring Jenna Jameson

Jameson gets the lead single from “The Eminem Show” off to a most inspiring start. Lounging in a bed with fitness model Kiana Tom, Jameson nuzzles up to Eminem before he gets on with his crime-fighting day alongside Dr. Dre. “Without Me” went on to win VMAs for Video of the Year, Best Male Video, Best Rap Video and Best Direction.

“Superman” (2003) featuring Gina Lynn

Chances are you probably haven’t seen Lynn’s bang-up job in “Superman,” since the video can only be found on the “8 Mile” DVD and is filled with far too much nudity for MTV. Plus there are some corny, Backstreet Boys-style special effects that make it a good idea to keep it hidden. But man, can Lynn act. From the looks of it, it’s a good thing for Em that Shannon Elizabeth, his first choice, passed up the offer. WATCH THE VIDEO

“We Made You” (2009) featuring Lisa Ann

Eminem had taken a break from tapping porn stars for his videos, but when it came time to film the video for “We Made You” he knew he needed the famed Lisa Ann. When you’ve got someone like Ann, who can nail a Sarah Palin impersonation almost as well as Tina Fey (but in much less clothes), how can you not be inspired? The video won a VMA for Best Hip-Hop Video and was nominated for Best Male Video, as well as Video of the Year. Obviously Bill O’Reilly had no idea what he was talking about when he called Em a “vile rapper” and “the lowest form of entertainment.” WATCH THE VIDEO
