NEW YORK (Billboard) - Eminem debuted the video to "We Made You," the first single off his forthcoming album "Relapse" on MTV Tuesday.

The video, directed by Joseph Kahn, mercilessly spoofs a slew of celebrities, including Jessica Simpson and her alleged weight issues, Kim Kardashian's rear, Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson's fractured lesbian relationship, Sarah Palin, Elle DeGeneres, Jessica Alba and others.

"When you walked through the door, it was clear to me/ You're the one they adore, who they came to see/ You're a rock star, everybody wants you," goes the track's chorus over the Dr. Dre-produced beat.

In the video, Eminem plays John Mayer crooning to a smitten Jennifer Aniston; Tony Romo doing a dirty dance with Simpson, Spock from "Star Trek;" Kevin Federline alongside a dancing Britney Spears; and an incarcerated Blake Fielder-Civil making out with estranged wife Amy Winehouse. 50 Cent and Bobby Lee from MAD TV make guest appearances.

"Relapse" is due in stores in May 19.
