Eminem Won't Allow Cursing in His Home
Eminem may curse like crazy in his rap songs, but at home he sings a completely different tune.
"Profanity around my house? No," he tells Anderson Cooper in a 60 Minutes interview, airing 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], 'Bitch, 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 pisses me off," he says. "I can think of a lot of things that rhyme with orange."
