I’m really looking forward to checking out the Eminem interview on 60 Minutes tonight. How often does Eminem sit down and talk and set the record straight. Who’s interviewing him? Anderson Cooper! Silver Fox! That makes it even that much more interesting, considering Cooper has been speculated to be gay and have a partner, while Eminem has made countless homophobic remarks in his lyrics and to the public.
Eminem will be shedding some light on his home life. “Profanity around my house? No,” Eminem informs cooper, when he’s asked if his real life vocabulary matches that of his songs. “I’m not saying there’s not glimpses of me in the music, [that] there’s not truth in…things that I say, but this is music, this is my art.”
They talk about his daughter, Hailie, who is now 14 years old, and of course his ex-wife Kim Mathers. He adds:
“I’m a parent. I have daughters. I mean, how would I really sound, as a person…walking around my house [saying] ‘Bitch, pick this up,’ you know what I mean? I don’t cuss.”
He also addresses whether he feels any sort of responsibility as a role model for younger people, but basically says that it’s the parents job to parent. I agree and disagree.
