Suicide Scene In Eminem's 'Space Bound' Video Has Some Critics Asking If He Went Too Far? [Poll]

 

Eminem's new video for "Space Bound" is being criticized by some as being "too gruesome."

In the video there are violent scenes of Em, who in a fantasy state chokes his girlfriend only to have her vanish right in front of him. He then commits suicide with a very graphic gunshot under the chin.

The content has some wondering if the suicide scene is just too much for a mainstream music video.

 

"We already know that Em has a penchant for videos that push the envelope, but considering the PC age we're living in where violence in videoscan come under the microscope, did "Space Bound" go too far?" writes MLive.

 

Sasha Grey, who co-stars in the video as Em's love interest tried to offer her interpretation of the video.

"You can read into it a few different ways, but I imagine one character is actually him, and the other is his subconscious," Grey told MTV. "Em simply becomes company for her, and she mistakenly takes advantage of that. I don't know if it necessarily has a thorough message, but I think it shows that even the strongest of love meets destruction at some point," the ex-porn star said . "Whether or not you come out of it together and whole is an entirely different question."

What's your take on the video's violent imagery? Is it something we should be used to seeing by now from Eminem or is it still shocking?
