Eminem Censors Self to Keep Away Protesters


Rapper Eminem, known for his homophobic lyrics, has agreed to tone down his lyrics for upcoming tour dates in the U.K.

The organization OutRage! announced a plan to protest summer 2010 concerts, but now Eminem and the group have come to an agreement that the rapper would not use homophobic language in his shows.

Wireless Festival spokesman David Allison said that Eminem agreed to sign a document, stating that he would not use the language. In exchange, there would be no protests at the show.

"We have a condition that he does not use lyrics that encourage or incite hatred against gay people," Allison said, according to the U.K. newspaper The Evening Standard. "He is free to express his views on gay people, as long as he stays off the violence and hatred. He has got plenty of other lyrics to choose from. In recent years he has become quite well-behaved."

The Wireless Festival is slated for London's Hyde Park in July.
