Eminem agrees to drop anti-gay lyrics for UK gig?

"Eminem has reportedly agreed not to perform any anti-gay songs in order to appear at the Wireless Festival next summer," reports UK Pink News. The festival was said to be concerned about protests from gay groups such as OutRage! over some of the rapper's lyrics. The UK-based gay rights group has been vocal in protesting against homophobic singers, most recently Jamaican stars Buju Banton and Beenie Man. It last protested against Eminem in 2001. But when a deal was struck between all three parties was made to ensure there would be no anti-gay lyrics or protests, the singer agreed to sign up for the summer event.
