Finally, it seems that Eminem has forgiven his mom in an emotional music video that was released on this year’s Mother’s Day. The controversial US rapper, who has talked about his carked raising in tracks such as Without Me and Cleanin’ Out My Closet, shows rare compunction in his new tracked titled Headlights. In the track, he makes mends with his mom, Debbie Mathers.
Eminem, whose actual name is Marshall Mathers, mustered in Spike Lee to direct the video for Headlights that includes lyrics disclosing his unhappiness that his own kids have never met their grandmom, except one time, which was just by accident.
The music video features an actress who played the role of her mother Debbie Mathers and describes the loneliness of her life as she is deliberately excluded from relishing her superstar son’s success as well as being allowed to get in touch with her grandkids.
At one point in the music video, the actress who plays Eminem’s mom watches her son on TV as he executes one of his trademark rap tracks. The video also shows Debbie Mathers trying to visit her son, but she is turned away by security his gated compound. In what could be the most heartbreaking moment of the video – the mother figure misidentifies a young man donning a hoodie at the park for her kid and attempts to embrace him only to be pushed aside.
The rap includes lines like: “Never thinking about who what I said hurt, in what verse/My mom probably got it the worst/The brunt of it, but as stubborn as we are/Did I take it too far?”
