Sia To Donate Proceeds From Eminem Collaboration “Beautiful Pain” To Homeless LGBT Youth

0de6f968396fbef566b39e1b0e46b7b8 Sia To Donate Proceeds From Eminem Collaboration “Beautiful Pain” To Homeless LGBT Youth

Aussie pop genius Sia appears on “Beautiful Pain,” a bonus track to Eminem‘s The Marshall Mathers LP 2, and the out singer got some flack for the guest spot due to Em’s past history of homophobia and/or muddled ideas about homophobic slurs. Sia initially explained it away, saying, “I know personally that he is not homophobic, but a performance artist.” However, like everyone else, she was surprised and disappointed by how many homophobic slurs ultimately appeared on MMLP2 (though maybe nobody should be surprised since the album was framed as a continuation of Slim Shady circa the year 2000). “When I heard ‘Rap God’ I was very anxious,” she explained. “He has a character called Slim Shady who represents the worst and darkest bile of America. I see how it can be unclear.”

So to clear things up, Sia announced all proceeds from the song will go to homeless LGBT youths in Los Angeles. According to SheWired, her donations will help pay for “a 50-bed shelter, a transitional living program, medical care, meals, clothing, counseling, GED prep programs, job placement services and more” at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center.
