Video: Eminem f/ Sia – ‘Guts Over Fear’

Eminem

Eminem won’t back down in the cinematic video for his empowering anthem “Guts Over Fear” featuring Sia. The Syndrome-directed clip stars an aspiring boxer, who tries to make it to the ring, but first he faces all kinds of obstacles. His dish-washing job can’t pay the bills, his girlfriend is pregnant, and his father is an alcoholic. But despite it all, he manages to persevere and triumph in the face of adversity.

The camera-shy Sia does not appear, instead shining a spotlight on a woman with vitiligo, who dons Sia’s trademark blonde bob.

The double-disc SHADYXV compilation is in stores now featuring 12 new tracks and some of the label’s greatest hits from Em, 50 Cent, Slaughterhouse, and more.

In honor of Veteran’s Day, music’s biggest stars united in Washington, D.C. to pay tribute to the nation’s veterans at “The Concert for Valor.” The three-hour event, which aired live on HBO, featured performances from Eminem, Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Dave Grohl, Zac Brown Band, and Carrie Underwood, with appearances from Jamie Foxx, Meryl Streep, Steven Spielberg, and Tom Hanks.

Before a crowd of 800,000 at the National Mall, Jennifer Hudson kicked things off with a stirring rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The powerhouse diva also joined Jessie J for a duet of David Guetta and Sia’s “Titanium,” and the British sensation stuck around to sing her hit “Bang Bang.”

Following an introduction from “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston, Rihanna—clad in a glittery cape—shined bright while singing “Diamonds.”

“Happy Veteran’s Day! I just want to thank you all, all the veterans, from the bottom of my heart for giving your time and your life for this country. We thank you, we love you,” said RiRi before dedicating “Stay” to them.

She closed out her set by bringing out Eminem for their duet “The Monster.”

“D.C., happy motherfu**in’ Veteran’s Day,” said Em before launching into his ShadyXV single “Guts Over Fear.” He dedicated “Not Afraid” to the veterans, and capped off the evening with “Lose Yourself.”

“To all the veterans in here tonight and everyone currently serving in our armed forces, and also to the ones who didn’t make it home, I just want to say thank you for your sacrifices,” said the Detroit rapper.

Watch Em and RiRi salute the troops.
