MSNBC.com columnist Jeannette Walls reports that the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has no plans to protest 8 Mile, the hit movie starring controversial rapper Eminem. "His last album [The Eminem Show] didn't contain homophobic lyrics the way his other one did," said a GLAAD spokesperson. "We were always protesting the lyrics, not the man."
