Eminen tells CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he doesn’t use R-rated language in his home.
“Profanity around my house? No,” says Eminem, when Cooper asks if his stage life is like his home life.
“I’m not saying there’s not glimpses of me in the music, [that] there’s not truth in…things that I say,” he tells Cooper. “But this is music, this is my art…”
Despite his racy lyrics, he is completely different as a parent. The Grammy winner has three daughters, Hailie Jade Scott who he had with ex-wife Kim, and his two adopted daughters, Alaina and Whitney.
“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.”
How does Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, feel when his young fans use the language they hear in his songs?
“I feel like it’s your job to parent them. If you’re the parent, be a parent,” he tells Cooper.
Eminem also talks to Cooper about being picked on in school, his rise to fame as a white man in a predominantly black music genre, and his drug addiction that nearly cost him everything.
