PEACE BROKERED IN MARTIKA'S KITCHEN: There was a time for childish things, but now, apparently, Eminem's putting them away. And using Martika to draw a line under all the rap fueding and calling it off. That, you see, is what Like Toy Soldiers is all about.

Of course, while Eminem's attempts to kiss and make-up are a sign of growing maturity on the part of Mr. Mathers, whether Ja Rule and The Source magazine are going to be so quick to accept the olive branch isn't as clear (our guess, based on how rap fueds tend to go, is 'they won't be'), but it's encouraging to see someone trying to extract themselves from the mess. Plus, anything that promises a Martika revival can't be a bad thing, can it?
