Eminem We Made You Official Music Video

"We Made You" is a song by American hip hop musician Eminem, featuring vocalist Charmagne Tripp. It was released as the first single from his most recent album Relapse on April 7, 2009. Produced by Dr. Dre and co-produced by Doc Ish and Eminem himself, the song samples "Hot Summer Nights" by Walter Egan. Eminem performed this song along with "Crack a Bottle" at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards.

"We Made You" has received mixed reviews. Daniel Kreps of Rolling Stone magazine gave it a positive review stating, "It's nice to see Eminem goofing around again after a few years out of the spotlight during which he grappled with serious issues like the death of his friend Proof, and 'We Made You' with its damnation of current celebrities will likely prove to be a solid pop cultural time capsule of this weird 2009 moment we're experiencing now." Billboard said, "Atop Dr. Dre's marching beat is primarily piano instrumentation, which amid drums and tubas give the track a carnival feel... And in case his word play was too fast and strange accent too difficult to decipher, "Jessica Simpson sings the chorus. Tim Jonze of The Guardian however, reported, "'We Made You' is not Eminem doing what he does best."

The music video for "We Made You" premiered on April 7, 2009 at 6:00 AM on several MTV networks, as well as MTV.com. The video also premiered on Channel 4 in the UK on the next day.

The single's music video was directed by Joseph Kahn, who also shot "Without Me" from The Eminem Show. The video was filmed in Las Vegas and features star appearances by Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Cynthia Nixon, Kon Artis, Bobby Lee, The Palms hotel owner George Maloof, Melissa Peterman, pornographic actress Trisha Paytas(playing Jessica Simpson) , Derrick Barry (of America's Got Talent fame) (playing Britney Spears) and pornographic actress Lisa Ann (as Sarah Palin).

The music video is a parody of the TV shows Rock of Love and Star Trek (with the Starfleet insignia replaced with an inverted 2nd Infantry Division (United States), as well as Eminem singing in a background of an imitation version of the notes of Guitar Hero while the casino-based sequence in the video is an homage to the film Rain Man, a film Eminem has previously referenced in his lyrics. The casino scene was shot in The Palms hotel and casino. References to Nanook of the North are also made, especially seen in the scenes with Sarah Palin. On April 3, 2009, Eminem talked about the music video in an MTV News interview, stating that there is some "Celebrity bashing in it," which is often a feature of his album's lead singles. In addition to Sarah Palin, notable celebrities mocked using look-a-like actresses/actors include Jessica Simpson, Bret Michaels, Britney Spears, Kevin Federline, Lindsay Lohan, Samantha Ronson, Amy Winehouse, Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi, Jessica Alba, Elvis Presley, Tony Romo, John Mayer, Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian. Bill O'Reilly of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor deemed the video "crude" for its depiction of Sarah Palin and anti-feminist lyrics, calling Eminem "the lowest form of entertainment." Eminem even spoofed himself, in his Alf t-shirt.

The music video won an MTV Video Music Award for Best hip hop video.

"We Made You" sold 167,000 downloads in its first week to enter the Hot Digital Songs chart in Billboard Magazine at number three. The song also debuted at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100, to become Eminem's second top ten in a row on the chart, ranked "Crack a Bottle", a collaboration with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent.

"We Made You" has reached the top ten in twelve countries, including number one in Ireland, New Zealand and Australia.
