Can I share a pet peeve? I really hate this trend of celebrity ”retirements.” I mean, if 83-year-old Betty White ever announces she’s calling it quits, I’ll take her word for it. But just because Eminem (left) has decided to call his upcoming greatest hits package Curtain Call, am I supposed to believe the guy will never set foot in a recording studio again? C’mon now. Suggesting anything to that effect seems both disingenuous and ludicrous, more a marketing tool to move extra copies of his CD than a genuine retirement announcement. So what’s say we lay off the ‘R’ word. Unless, of course, you really think Cher’s farewell tour means farewell. Or that you’ve heard the last rap from Jay-Z.

Anyone else with me on this one?
