I believe this is calling out whore-ish type behavior in women. From Eminem's point of view his ex-cheated on him, and he doesn't want to invest and hurt from a hoe or people who are just out to get with him because of fame/sex/money/just having someone to show off to their friends. He plays along with their games but cuts them out of his life because he knows they are just lying whores, I think this song can be for both genders, though it's from males POV. There are some men who are like this too. He is also suggesting he can't save anyone from being a "hoe" it is a choice they made, and they will have to deal with because he knows these type of women who do such things.
This song is not about Mariah Carey. Its about his life and what he basically got from his experiences. Every guy could relate to these lyrics because he basically talks about how much he wanted to be there for his ex girlfriend 'Kim' but that she didn't give him a chance to get to know him. He basically used her as a way to get even with all women, and basically 'cuts to the chase' because he really dosen't want to get hurt by a hoe. Although he does mention how much he loves hoes, he claims that he dosen't fall in love with them because they lie anyways, and he has too much pride between them that the thought of him caring is pointless.

This is about the whole Mariah Carey conflict. How Mariah had a sexual relationship with Eminem then said she didn't. Eminem then made this song. I'm not sure but I think Mariah wrote " Obsessed" after "Superman" was made. Obsessed is basically how Mariah thinks Eminem lied about their whole relationship and she just thinks eminem is obsessed with her because of the multiple songs about her that Eminem made. (like Bagpipes from Bagdad)
Bottom line: Mariah is a whore and won't admit it so Slim did... If u see the music video u'd get it

While this song speaks of how women don't care for the real person inside, which is sad for him, it also speaks of how fucked up he is towards them because he anticipates them being disingenuous. Then by him saying that he can't be their superman means he is taking all of the blame off of himself for his playboy tirades.

This song is about eminem being pissed at all the hoes in his life that cheat on him and don't try getting to know him... It's some deep shit, it only sounds so bad because that is what people like to listen to.
