Eminem Explains His Disses Of Moby & Chris Kirkpatrick In 'Without Me'

NEW YORK (Top 40 Charts) - Wondering why Eminem singles out 'NSync 's Chris Kirkpatrick and Moby in his new song, "Without Me," from his forthcoming The Eminem Show?

The rapper told MTV's Total Request Live on Thursday (May 2) during the premiere of the video that it's because Kirkpatrick was the only boy band member who had the guts to say something back to him, after the rapper attacked the group and boy bands in general on his last album.

On why he attacks Moby in the song and video, Em sarcastically told TRL that he liked Moby, but feels bad that no one else does. The Moby attack is an obvious retaliation to the techno king's comments following the 2001 GRAMMY® Awards when he said the rapper was "very clever, but he's also a misogynist, a homophobe, a racist, and an anti-Semite".

The video depicts Kirkpatrick, Moby (practicing yoga), and Eminem as Osama bin Laden, along with an appearance from producer Dr. Dre.

The Eminem Show is due June 4 on Interscope with a bonus limited edition DVD. The DVD will be included in the first 2 million copies of the album in the U.S. and first million internationally, and includes the trailer to Eminem's Imagine/Universal film, 8 Mile. The movie is due Nov. 8
