Eminem is a big enough star that he can get women to take their tops off just by asking, and soon, he’ll have the video to prove it. According to published reports, he’s signed on to host an edition of the ”Girls Gone Wild” mail-order video series, known for its spring-break-type footage of everyday women flashing the camera.

According to MTV News, the rapper has been part of segments shot backstage during his current ”Anger Management” tour, talking to some of the young ladies and recording voiceovers. The New York Post reports that Slim Shady has also been with crews shooting hotties on beaches at the Hamptons (the until-now-considered-posh summer resort towns on New York’s Long Island) and at a Manhattan strip club. The resulting video will likely be called ”Girls Gone Wild: Eminem” and should be available in early 2003.

Eminem’s not the only rapper attached to one of these videos. Snoop Dogg led the pack, hosting a video called, of course, ”Girls Gone Wild Doggy Style,” shot during Mardi Gras in New Orleans, that’s due out in September. ”I think the hip-hop community is very sexual and edgy,” series creator Joe Francis told Steppin’ Out magazine, a New Jersey-area entertainment publication. ”They don’t seem to have a problem with us or our content.”

Francis said other pop notables have expressed interest, including Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath and ex-Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee (star of his own infamous top-selling sex video, with then-wife Pamela Anderson). ”Who cares about Tommy Lee?” Francis said. ”We only want the best of the best. That’s why we got Eminem.”

Not all the women on Francis’ videos have been thrilled with their 15 seconds of fame. Rolling Stone reports that some of Francis’ cameramen haven’t always gotten the women to sign releases, leading to several lawsuits, at least one of which Francis settled out of court for $10,000, and another of which is set for trial this fall. Francis told the magazine that he gets all the subjects to sign releases now, ”because getting them is too easy.”
