Eminem once called Moby a girl. Moby has newfound respect for Eminem.
Electronic musician Moby says he has a newfound respect for Michigan rap star Eminem who once mocked him in a song because Eminem criticized President Bush and the war in Iraq in his last album.

"I found myself respecting him for doing that," Moby told reporters during a promotional stop in Hong Kong for his latest album "Hotel."

Moby and Eminem have a long-standing feud. Moby has criticized Eminem's lyrics as misogynistic. Eminem lashed out at Moby and electronic music in "Without Me" and spoofed him in the song's video. He called Moby a girl at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards.

"Honestly, if he retired, I think the world of music would be a poorer place. He's a really fascinating public figure," Moby said. Moby said he still has qualms about some of Eminem's lyrics but praised him as talented, saying, "I'd much rather have public figure musicians like Eminem because at least he's exciting."

5. I always wondered at that...
Of course I always wondered at MM having that lyric about Moby, "nobody listens to techno no more." Moby hasn't done techno as Moby for ten years.

3. I don't always agree with what Eminem says
but he is a lyrical genius and I also respect him for taking a stand against Bush and the War.

I met Moby once, he was really nice and really short.

4. Speaking of Moby...
He has a new album available on iTunes called, appropriately "Moby: iTunes Originals". It is a studio album of newly recorded versions of songs spanning his career, along with commentary between each track regarding his music, his beliefs, his career. There are some interesting takes on many of the songs, and some of the stuff is performed with a band.

It is interesting to see Moby live, because the music suddenly becomes less electronic and rigorously structured and produced (a problem with electronic music), as it is played by live musicians.. it grooves and takes on the nuance and quirks of individual musicians coming together to play the pieces.

But this album on iTunes is pretty good, and a deal at $9.99.

6. I don't personally like Moby's music.
But he has taken the high road here. I think Eminem pushes the envelope and I like some of his music (some is degrading though). I am glad he took a stand against Bush.
