Eminem was interviewed by Kurt
Loder and here's what he had to say:
Loder interview highlights
About Christina, Eminem
said he's met her before and had respect for her, but after seeing the
What A Girl Wants episode where she talked about Em being married and singing
about domestic violence, she basically was tearing him up. He said, No!
You didn't just say that bitch! Why did she just play my video if she was
going to pick it apart? He said if she was gonna say something about him
she heard as a rumor, he'd do the same thing talking about Carson and Fred
says he's not only anti *NSYNC but that the whole pop world is corny. It's
ridiculous, repetitive, and gets on his nerves, to the point where he's
tried to separate himself from the TRL pop crowd. The references to 'fag'
in his lyrics have gotten gay activists to speak against him, but he says
the word 'faggot' isn't necessarily gay, it's just an expression to mean
someone is a sissy or coward. He says he really believes in freedom of
speech and artistic expression.
He told Kurt that while he
was touring, he doesn't think anyone saw him not drunk or on dope. He said
drugs kept him going during his non stop touring last year.
When asked about the lawsuit,
he said it's still going on, but it pisses him off because he can't talk
about it. He wants to make comments but he's paying out his ass for lawyers
as it is. At first, he said nobody in his family gave a damn about him,
and now they're saying "I knew you would make it!" When he talked about
his daughter, he said he didn't want to be like his father was, and he
added that she likes Britney and Christina and that she's really smart.
He says he has a little circle of family and friends, people he knew before
he made it big and know him as the real Eminem.
When he talked about Kim,
he said they have a really funny relationship, not a healthy one. He said
when they were seeing other people, it upset him so much. She said to Eminem
"you're a d***, you're f**kin crazy for real." He says for the most part
When asked about Will Smith,
he said Will dissed the whole genre of rap and that not everyone is as
happy as Will Smith. He felt Smith was taking a stab at me and Dre and
anyone who uses profanity. He says he's looking forward to meeting with
the people he dissed on the album.
Then he talked about the
Jennifer Lopez bit where he says on the new album "I'd still f**k her with
no rubber." He says about the rap that he's basically saying Puffy has
a beautiful woman and who doesn't want to have sex with her? He says it's
just a record, not reality. He told MV that Puffy is cool with the record
as is Dre, whom Eminem kills off. Dre says he has to let Em be Em and that
if he was told not to say stuff there'd be no NWA. Eminem says people dissect
the music too much and to stop analyzing my sh*t too in depth.
