Behind the scenes footage of Eminem’s “Space Bound” video began popping earlier this year. While that’s nothing new these days for rap videos — they also tend to get hyped with photos, too — this one was slightly different. The “Space Bound” visuals co-star Sasha Grey. Yes, guys, that Sasha Grey, who recently retired from pornography to start a proper acting career. Here, she plays the role of Em’s girlfriend, who is at the receiving end of all of his frustration and confusion with females over the years. Director Joseph Kahn channels those emotions by portraying two sides to the rapper, who ultimately decides that he needs to end it all. Or does he? If nothing else, the video makes the track a whole lot more interesting than it was on the album.
Recovery is out now.
