Everyone's talking about Mom's Spaghetti — no, not mom's spaghetti (love you mom), but Mom's Spaghetti, the new restaurant launched by Eminem in Detroit, named after perhaps one of his most unintentionally iconic lyrics. Stories about Eminem and the new restaurant dominated 4 out of this week's top 10 headlines. Readers were also interested in our cover story about Michigan State Police's secret surveillance software, and they're still reading last week's cover story about the history of the famous Boblo boats, too.

Here's what ya'll clicked on this week:

10. "Clawson’s Sozai might be the best sushi bar in Michigan | Restaurant reviews"

9. "Michigan's top medical advisor 'Dr. J' resigns ahead of expected COVID-19 fall surge"

8. "Eminem fans and internet sleuths think shady will drop a record on Oct. 1 — here's why"

5. "Eminem dishes out his 'Mom's Spaghetti' with new Detroit diner"

4. "Claim Eminem team stole 'Mom's Spaghetti' recipe appears to be a hoax"
