In a recent interview with Anderson Cooper on 60 minutes, rapper Eminem reveals, although he’s known for his explicit and vulgar lyrics, he does not curse when he’s home.
The rapper also takes the reporter to his Detroit home town and reminisced about life before becoming a celebrity.
“Profanity around my house? No,” he tells Anderson Cooper in a 60 Minutes interview, which aired Sunday. “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.”
When he’s at home, the 38-year-old father-of-four (real name: Marshall Mathers) says: “I’m a parent. I have daughters. I mean, how would I really sound, as a person … walking around my house [saying], ‘B—-, pick this up,’ you know what I mean? … I don’t cuss.”
Asked if he feels a sense of responsibility when his young fans use the cuss words he spews his songs, the
rapper says, “I feel like it’s your job to parent them. If you’re the parent, be a parent.”
He also takes Cooper through the rapping process he uses to rhyme words.
His biggest beef?
“People say that the word orange doesn’t rhyme with anything and that kind of p—– me off,” he says. “I can think of a lot of things that rhyme with orange.”
