London, May 20 (ANI): American rapper Eminem has admitted that his derogatory new track mentioning Mariah Carey was a little harsh, and that even though it has sparked a war of words with Nick Cannon, he only wishes the couple “the best”.

The singer, real name Marshall Mathers III, sparked the feud with Cannon after he referred to his brief relationship with Carey in ‘Bagpipes From Baghdad’.

In the song, Eminem rapped: “Nick Cannon better back the f**k up. I’m not playing, I want her back, you punk. Nick Cannon, you pr**k, I wish you luck with that f**kin’ whore.”

After the song came out, Cannon accused Eminem of “racial bigotry”, and vowed that the rapper’s words will have “repercussions”.

But Eminem is adamant that he was not looking for a fight.

He has admitted that his words were “a little harsh”, and that Cannon’s reaction is fully understandable.

“As a kid (I had a crush on Carey), definitely. With the song ‘Bagpipes From Baghdad,’ there’s a line on there, I mean, I kinda spazed out (went crazy) on that record but I guess I spazed out on every record,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

“There’s a line on there that was a little harsh, you know, it’s a harsh line, it was pretty intense… but the way I look at it, I said it, I had no idea he was going to take it like he took it. I had no idea Nick Cannon was gonna start wildin’ out on me…

“I heard about some of the things he was saying, I didn’t read his blog or anything. …He’s supposed to defend his wife. I expected him to do that. But at the end of the day, it’s a line I said, I meant to say I wish them the best. That’s what I meant to say… I didn’t plan on taking it (to battling), hopefully it doesn’t, but you know, it is what it is,” he added. (ANI)
