This Week's Voice: Eminem's New Book, English Pop Divas, Role Models, Everycats in Achewood, and More
In this week's Village Voice Music Section, Rob Harvilla finds Eminem's tragedy to be our comedy in the rapper's new memoir, The Way I Am: "A glamorous shot of a deleted scene from the Oscar-crashing 8 Mile showing Eminem's character petting a horse is as wonderfully surreal as the scene itself was apparently ridiculous."
Mikael Wood goes abroad with shameless English pop divas Girls Aloud, the Saturdays, and Sugababes.
Jessica Suarez interviews, takes part in the stoic, hazy garage-rock exuberance of Crystal Stilts.
