Rapper Eminem urges women to dress more respectively if they want to avoid being called `bitches' and `hos' in rap songs - because he's appalled by the young women he sees when he's partying.

The STAN hitmaker is among a handful of rappers who have upset women and gay rights activists with scathing attacks and derogatory comments in his songs.

But he insists it would be a different story if girls stopped dressing like sex objects. In a rant in the current issue ofVanity Fair, Eminem states, "I've seen groupies on the road and women just throwing themselves at you just because you're famous, and I hate that.

"It takes your opinion of women and lowers it. How can these girls dress like this? (I'm) not saying I'm not attracted to it, but how can these girls portray themselves in this way and then get mad if we call them a `bitch' or a `ho,' or whatever the case being?"
