Ronda Rousey 'honored' by lewd Eminem lyrics: 'Art isn't meant to be nice'

Ronda Rousey is not upset by her random mention in a lewd Eminem song. In fact, she's kind of honored.

Eminem drops Rousey's name in the title track of his newly released album Shady XV, calling her "a slaughterhouse in a blouse." The rapper also makes a reference to her physical features. But Rousey doesn't mind a bit, she said Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

"He's an artist and art isn't meant to be nice, it's meant to make you feel something," Rousey said.

The UFC women's bantamweight champion is unsure if Eminem is insulting her. And if he is, she said she doesn't really care.

"I like being called a slaughterhouse in a blouse," Rousey said. "I think that's cool. I'm not perfect, but parts of me are pretty awesome and I think if Eminem took the ass Pepsi Challenge, he would totally pick me as his favorite."

The full verse is as follows:

I got a Magic Johnson

It's like a Magic Wand allows me to not let a blonde arouse me

If Ronda Rousey was on the couch with the condoms out

Holding a thousand

Magnums at once to pounce me

I'll laugh in response to how she dances and flaunts it around me

Her flat little badonkadonk is bouncing around

And all I see is Paulie Malignaggi, she's slaughterhouse in a blouse

It's hard to tell whether Eminem being positive, negative or somewhere in between. Either way, it's kind of lascivious. Not that Rousey is bothered by the lyrics at all.

"I feel like getting rapped about by Eminem is like getting armbarred by me," said Rousey, who defends her title against Cat Zingano at UFC 184 on Feb. 28 in Los Angeles. "It might not be so pleasant if you're on the other side of it, but it's so skillfully done you have to be honored."
