For wanting my cake, and eat it too, and wanting it both ways

from Eminem (Ft. Rihanna) – The Monster Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

She told me, boy you want your cake and eat it too
I said its cake, that’s what your supposed to do

Em continues on previous line and apologizes to the public for wanting the fame and respect his music deserves but also his privacy. The “cake” here also has financial connotations
