Eminem

I Was NOT Lip-Syncing, But ...

Eminem is claiming he didn't pull an Ashlee Simpson on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for the rapper tells us Em was not lip-syncing during his performance of "Berzerk" ... but does admit he was using a vocal track underneath his live vocals.

Translation: live mic+vocal track = vocal help. Yes, technically ...it's not lip-syncing, but it's pretty damn close.

The rep adds, "He just likes this sound and if you listen to his albums they are done the same way."

Guilty conscience?

That song really tells you that he should either walk away or admit he is crossing over into pop.

How about he does it because like many of these so called "singers, rapper, hip hoppers, etc" they don't really have talent, they use whatever methods they can to electronically make them sound better otherwise nobody would pay money to hear most of them. he is just another dumb as dirt, ghetto trash, punk rapper.
