Life and career 1972–1991: Early life Marshall Bruce Mathers III was born on October 17, 1972,[4] in St. Joseph, Missouri, the only child of Marshall Bruce Mathers Jr. and Deborah Rae "Debbie" Nelson.[5][6][7] His mother nearly died during her 73-hour labor with him.[8] Eminem's parents were in a band called Daddy Warbucks, playing in Ramada
Ramada
Inns along the Dakotas–Montana border before their separation. Bruce left the family, moving to California[9] and having two other children: Michael and Sarah.[10] Debbie later had son Nathan "Nate" Kane Samara.[7] During his childhood, Eminem
Eminem
and Debbie shuttled between Michigan
Michigan
and Missouri, rarely staying in one house for more than a year or two and living primarily with family members. In Missouri, they lived in several places, including St. Joseph, Savannah, and Kansas City.[11][12] As a teenager, Eminem
Eminem
wrote letters to his father; according to Debbie, all came back marked "return to sender".[9] Friends and family remember Eminem
Eminem
as a happy child, but "a bit of a loner" who was often bullied. One bully, De'Angelo Bailey, severely injured Eminem's head (mentioned in his song "Brain Damage"); Debbie filed a lawsuit against the school in 1982, which was dismissed the following year.[8] Eminem spent much of his youth in a working-class, primarily black, Detroit neighborhood.[9] He and Debbie were one of three white households on their block, and Eminem
Eminem
was beaten by black youths several times.[9] As a child he was interested in storytelling, aspiring to be a comic-book artist before discovering hip hop.[13] Eminem
Eminem
heard his first rap song ("Reckless", featuring Ice-T) on the Breakin' soundtrack, a gift from Debbie's half-brother Ronnie Polkinghorn, who later became a musical mentor to him. When Polkinghorn committed suicide in 1991, Eminem
Eminem
stopped speaking for days and did not attend his funeral.[9][14] Eminem's home life was seldom stable; he frequently fought with his mother, whom a social worker described as having a "very suspicious, almost paranoid personality". When her son became famous, Debbie was unimpressed by suggestions that she was a less-than-ideal mother, contending that she sheltered him and was responsible for his success. In 1987, Debbie allowed runaway Kimberly Ann "Kim" Scott to stay at their home; several years later, Eminem
Eminem
began an on-and-off relationship with Scott.[8] After spending three years in ninth grade due to truancy and poor grades,[15] he dropped out of Lincoln High School at age 17. Although he was interested in English, he never explored literature (preferring comic books) and disliked math and social studies.[16] Eminem
Eminem
worked at several jobs to help his mother pay the bills, later maintaining that she often threw him out of the house anyway. When she left to play bingo, he would blast the stereo and write songs.[9] At age 14, Eminem
Eminem
began rapping with high-school friend Mike Ruby; they adopted the names "Manix" and "M&M", the latter of which evolved into "Eminem".[4][8] Eminem
Eminem
sneaked into neighboring Osborn High School with friend and fellow rapper Proof for lunchroom freestyle rap battles.[17] On Saturdays, they attended open mic contests at the Hip-Hop Shop on West 7 Mile, considered "ground zero" for the Detroit
Detroit
rap scene.[9] Struggling to succeed in a predominantly black industry, Eminem
Eminem
was appreciated by underground hip hop audiences.[4][18][19] When he wrote verses, he wanted most of the words to rhyme; he wrote long words or phrases on paper and, underneath, worked on rhymes for each syllable.[16] Although the words often made little sense, the drill helped Eminem
Eminem
practice sounds and rhymes.[16] 1992–1997: Early career, Infinite and family struggles

Eminem
Eminem
in Germany, 1999

As Eminem's reputation grew, he was recruited by several rap groups; the first was the New Jacks. After they disbanded he joined Soul Intent, who released a single on their 1995 self-titled EP featuring Proof.[4] Eminem
Eminem
and Proof then teamed up with four other rappers to form The Dirty Dozen (D12), who released their first album Devil's Night in 2001.[9] Eminem
Eminem
had his first run-in with the law at age 20, when he was arrested for his involvement in a drive-by shooting with a paintball gun. The case was dismissed when the victim did not appear in court.[8] Eminem
Eminem
was soon signed to Jeff and Mark Bass's FBT Productions, and recorded his debut album Infinite for their independent Web Entertainment label.[20] The album was a commercial failure upon its release in 1996.[21] One lyrical subject of Infinite was his struggle to raise his newborn daughter, Hailie Jade Scott Mathers, on little money. During this period, Eminem's rhyming style, primarily inspired by rappers Nas, Esham and AZ, lacked the comically violent slant for which he later became known.[22] Detroit
Detroit
disc jockeys largely ignored Infinite, and the feedback Eminem
Eminem
did receive ("Why don't you go into rock and roll?") led him to craft angrier, moodier tracks.[9] At this time Eminem
Eminem
and Kim Scott lived in a crime-ridden neighborhood, and their house was robbed several times.[9] Eminem
Eminem
cooked and washed dishes for minimum wage at Gilbert's Lodge, a family-style restaurant at St. Clair Shores.[23] His former boss described him as becoming a model employee, as he worked 60 hours a week for six months after Hailie's birth.[8] He was fired shortly before Christmas, and later said, "It was, like, five days before Christmas, which is Hailie's birthday. I had, like, forty dollars to get her something."[9] After the release of Infinite, his personal problems and substance abuse culminated in a suicide attempt.[4] By March 1997 he was fired from Gilbert's Lodge for the last time, and lived in his mother's mobile home with Kim and Hailie.[8] 1998–1999: Introduction to Slim Shady, The Slim Shady LP
The Slim Shady LP
and rise to success Eminem
Eminem
attracted more attention when he developed Slim Shady, a sadistic, violent alter ego. The character allowed him to express his anger with lyrics about drugs, rape, and murder.[8] In the spring of 1997 he recorded his debut EP, the Slim Shady EP, which was released that winter by Web Entertainment.[9] The EP, with frequent references to drug use, sexual acts, mental instability and violence, also explored the more-serious themes of dealing with poverty and marital and family difficulties and revealed his direct, self-deprecating response to criticism.[4] Hip-hop magazine The Source featured Eminem in its "Unsigned Hype" column in March 1998.[24]

After he was evicted from his home, Eminem
Eminem
went to Los Angeles to compete in the 1997 Rap Olympics, an annual, nationwide battle rap competition. He placed second, and Interscope Records staff in attendance sent a copy of the Slim Shady EP

to company CEO Jimmy Iovine. Iovine played the tape for record producer Dr. Dre, founder of Aftermath Entertainment
Aftermath Entertainment
and founding member of hip-hop group N.W.A. Dre recalled, "In my entire career in the music industry, I have never found anything from a demo tape or a CD. When Jimmy played this, I said, 'Find him. Now.'" Although his associates criticized him for hiring a white rapper, he was confident in his decision: "I don't give a fuck if you're purple; if you can kick it, I'm working with you."[9] Eminem
Eminem
had idolized Dre since listening to N.W.A. as a teenager, and was nervous about working with him on an album: "I didn't want to be starstruck or kiss his ass too much ... I'm just a little white boy from Detroit. I had never seen stars, let alone Dr. Dre."[25] He became more comfortable working with Dre after a series of productive recording sessions.[26] Eminem
Eminem
released The Slim Shady LP
The Slim Shady LP
in February 1999. Although it was one of the year's most popular albums (certified triple platinum by the end of the year),[27] he was accused of imitating the style and subject matter of underground rapper Cage.[28][29] The album's popularity was accompanied by controversy over its lyrics; in "'97 Bonnie and Clyde" Eminem
Eminem
describes a trip with his infant daughter when he disposes of his wife's body, and in "Guilty Conscience" which encourages a man to murder his wife and her lover. "Guilty Conscience" marked the beginning of a friendship and musical bond between Dr. Dre and Eminem. The label-mates later collaborated on a number of hit songs ("Forgot About Dre" and "What's the Difference" from Dr. Dre's album 2001, "Bitch Please II" from The Marshall Mathers LP, "Say What You Say" from The Eminem
Eminem
Show, "Encore/Curtains Down" from Encore, and "Old Time's Sake" and "Crack a Bottle" from Relapse), and Dre made at least one guest appearance on each of Eminem's Aftermath albums.[30] The Slim Shady LP

was released in May 2000. It sold 1,760,000 copies in its first week, breaking US records held by Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle
Doggystyle
for fastest-selling hip hop album and Britney Spears' ...Baby One More Time for fastest-selling solo album.[32][33] The first single from the album, "The Real Slim Shady", was a success despite controversies about Eminem's insults and dubious claims about celebrities (for example, that Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera
had performed oral sex on Fred Durst
Fred Durst
and Carson Daly).[34] In his second single, "The Way I Am", he reveals the pressure from his record company to top "My Name Is". Although Eminem
Eminem
parodied shock rocker Marilyn Manson
Marilyn Manson
in the music video for "My Name Is", they are reportedly on good terms; Manson is mentioned in "The Way I Am", appeared in its music video and has performed a live remix of the song with Eminem.[35] In the third single, "Stan" (which samples Dido's "Thank You"), Eminem
Eminem
tries to deal with his new fame, assuming the persona of a deranged fan who kills himself and his pregnant girlfriend (mirroring "'97 Bonnie & Clyde" from The Slim Shady LP).[18] Q called "Stan" the third-greatest rap song of all time,[36] and it was ranked tenth in a Top40-Charts.com survey.[37] The song has since been ranked 296th on Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list.[38] In July 2000, Eminem
Eminem
was the first white artist to appear on the cover of The Source.[24] The Marshall Mathers LP

was certified Diamond by the RIAA in March 2011 and sold 32 million copies worldwide.[39] Eminem

Elton John
at the 43rd Grammy Awards ceremony in 2001,[40] with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD, an organization which considered Eminem's lyrics homophobic) condemning John's decision to perform with Eminem.[41] Entertainment Weekly placed the appearance on its end-of-decade "best-of" list: "It was the hug heard 'round the world. Eminem, under fire for homophobic lyrics, shared the stage with a gay icon for a performance of "Stan" that would have been memorable in any context."[42] On February 21, the day of the awards ceremony, GLAAD held a protest outside the Staples Center

(the ceremony's venue).[43] In 2001 Eminem

The Eminem Show
certified Diamond by the RIAA examines the effects of Emniem's rise to fame, his relationship with his wife and daughter and his status in the hip-hop community, addressing an assault charge brought by a bouncer he saw kissing his wife in 2000. Although several tracks are clearly angry, Stephen Thomas Erlewine

less inflammatory than The Marshall Mathers LP.[46] L. Brent Bozell III, who had criticized The Marshall Mathers LP for misogynistic lyrics, noted The Eminem

promoting Encore

On December 8, 2003, the United States Secret Service
United States Secret Service
said that it was "looking into" allegations that Eminem
Eminem
had threatened the President of the United States.[48] The cause for concern was the lyrics of "We As Americans" ("Fuck money / I don't rap for dead presidents / I'd rather see the president dead / It's never been said, but I set precedents"), which was later released on a bonus CD with the deluxe edition of Encore.[49] Also in 2003 Eminem, a lifelong fan of Tupac,[50] provided production work for three tracks on the Tupac
Tupac
Resurrection soundtrack [51] He would follow this up the next year by producing 12 of the 16 tracks on Tupac's Loyal to the Game
Loyal to the Game
album.[51] Encore, released in 2004, was another success. Its sales were partially driven by the first single, "Just Lose It", which contained slurs about Michael Jackson. On October 12, 2004, a week after the release of "Just Lose It", Jackson phoned the Los Angeles-based Steve Harvey radio show to report his displeasure with its video (which parodies Jackson's child molestation trial, plastic surgery and the 1984 incident when Jackson's hair caught fire during the filming of a commercial). In the song Eminem
Eminem
says, "That's not a stab at Michael / That's just a metaphor / I'm just psycho". Many of Jackson's friends and supporters spoke out against the video, including Stevie Wonder (who described it as "kicking a man while he's down" and "bullshit")[52] and Steve Harvey
Steve Harvey
(who said, " Eminem
Eminem
has lost his ghetto pass. We want the pass back").[52] The video also parodied Pee-wee Herman, MC Hammer
MC Hammer
and Madonna during her Blond Ambition period.[53] "Weird Al" Yankovic, who parodied the Eminem
Eminem
song "Lose Yourself" on "Couch Potato" for his 2003 album Poodle Hat, told the Chicago Sun-Times
Chicago Sun-Times
about Jackson's protest: "Last year, Eminem
Eminem
forced me to halt production on the video for my 'Lose Yourself' parody because he somehow thought that it would be harmful to his image or career. So the irony of this situation with Michael is not lost on me."[54] Although Black Entertainment Television stopped playing the video, MTV
MTV
announced that it would continue to air it. The Source, through CEO Raymond "Benzino" Scott, called for the video to be pulled, the song removed from the album and Eminem
Eminem
to apologize publicly to Jackson.[55] In 2007 Jackson and Sony bought Famous Music from Viacom, giving him the rights to songs by Eminem, Shakira, Beck and others.[56] Despite its lead single's humorous theme, Encore explored serious subject matter with the anti-war song "Mosh". The song criticized President George W. Bush
George W. Bush
as "This weapon of mass destruction that we call our president", with lyrics including "Fuck Bush".[57] On October 25, 2004, a week before the 2004 US Presidential election, Eminem released the video for "Mosh" on the Internet.[58] In it, Eminem gathers an army (including rapper Lloyd Banks) of Bush-administration victims and leads them to the White House. When they break in, it is learned that they are there to register to vote; the video ends with "VOTE Tuesday November 2". After Bush's reelection, the video's ending was changed to Eminem
Eminem
and the protesters invading the White House during a speech by the president.[59] Also in 2004 Eminem
Eminem
launched a satellite music channel, Shade 45, on Sirius radio,[60] which was described by his manager as "essentially a destination to get and hear things that other people aren't playing," [61] In 2005, industry insiders speculated that Eminem
Eminem
was considering ending his rapping career after six years and several Multi-Platinum albums. Rumors began early in the year about a double album to be released late that year, entitled The Funeral;[62] the greatest hits album, entitled Curtain Call: The Hits, was released in December. In July the Detroit
Detroit
Free Press reported a possible final bow for Eminem as a solo performer, quoting members of his inner circle as saying that he would embrace the roles of producer and label executive. The day of Curtain Call: The Hits's release, Eminem
Eminem
appeared on WKQI's "Mojo in the Morning" show. Denying that he was retiring, he suggested he would take a break as an artist: "I'm at a point in my life right now where I feel like I don't know where my career is going ... This is the reason that we called it 'Curtain Call', because this could be the final thing. We don't know."[63] The following year, Eminem
Eminem
released Eminem
Eminem
Presents: The Re-Up on Shady Records. In 2005, Eminem
Eminem
was ranked 58th in Bernard Goldberg's book, 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America.[64] Goldberg cited a 2001 column by Bob Herbert of The New York Times, in which Herbert wrote "In Eminem's world, all women are whores and he is eager to rape and murder them",[65] and the song "No One's Iller" from the Slim Shady EP
Slim Shady EP
as examples of Eminem's misogyny.[66] That summer Eminem
Eminem
began his first US concert tour in three years, with the Anger Management 3 Tour featuring 50 Cent, G-Unit, Lil Jon, D12, Obie Trice
Obie Trice
and The Alchemist. In August he canceled the European leg of the tour, later announcing that he had entered drug rehabilitation for treatment of a "dependency on sleep medication".[67] Curtain Call: The Hits was released December 6, 2005 by Aftermath Entertainment.[68] During its first week it sold nearly 441,000 copies in the US, and was Eminem's fourth consecutive number-one album on the Billboard
Billboard
Hot 200.[69] The album has been certified double platinum by the RIAA.[70] In September 2007, Eminem
Eminem
called New York radio station WQHT
WQHT
during an interview with 50 Cent, saying that he was "in limbo" and "debating" about when (or if) he would release another album: "I'm always working – I'm always in the studio. It feels good right now, the energy of the label. For a while, I didn't want to go back to the studio ... I went through some personal things. I'm coming out of those personal things [and] it feels good."[71] 2008–2009: Comeback, Relapse

Eminem
appeared on his Shade 45 Sirius channel in September 2008, saying: "Right now I'm kinda just concentrating on my own stuff, for right now and just banging out tracks and producing a lot of stuff. You know, the more I keep producing the better it seems like I get 'cause I just start knowing stuff."[72] Interscope confirmed that a new album[73] would be released in spring 2009.[74] In December 2008, Eminem
Eminem
provided more details about the album, entitled Relapse: "Me and Dre are back in the lab like the old days, man. Dre will end up producing the majority of the tracks on 'Relapse'. We are up to our old mischievous ways ... let's just leave it at that."[75] According to a March 5, 2009 press release, Eminem
Eminem
would release two new albums that year. Relapse, the first, was released on May 19; its first single and music video, "We Made You", had been released on April 7.[76] Although Relapse
Relapse
did not sell as well as Eminem's previous albums and received mixed reviews, it was a commercial success and re-established his presence in the hip-hop world. It sold more than five million copies worldwide. During the 2009 MTV
MTV
Movie Awards, Sacha Baron Cohen

descended on the audience in an angel costume. He landed buttocks-first on Eminem, who stormed out of the ceremony; three days later, Eminem
Eminem
said that the stunt had been staged.[77] On October 30 he headlined at the Voodoo Experience
Voodoo Experience
in New Orleans, his first full performance of the year.[78] Eminem's act included several songs from Relapse, many of his older hits and an appearance by D12. On November 19, he announced on his website that Relapse: Refill would be released on December 21. The album was a re-release of Relapse
Relapse
with seven bonus tracks, including "Forever" and "Taking My Ball". Eminem
Eminem
described the CD:

I want to deliver more material for the fans this year like I originally planned ... Hopefully these tracks on The Refill will tide the fans over until we put out Relapse
Relapse
2 next year ... I got back in with Dre and then a few more producers, including Just Blaze, and went in a completely different direction which made me start from scratch. The new tracks started to sound very different than the tracks I originally intended to be on Relapse
Relapse
2, but I still want the other stuff to be heard.[79]

2010–2011: Recovery and Bad Meets Evil
Bad Meets Evil
reunion On April 14, 2010, Eminem
Eminem
tweeted: "There is no Relapse
Relapse
2". Although his followers thought he was not releasing an album, he had changed its title to Recovery and confirmed this by tweeting "RECOVERY" with a link to his website. He said:

I had originally planned for Relapse
Relapse
2 to come out last year. But as I kept recording and working with new producers, the idea of a sequel to Relapse
Relapse
started to make less and less sense to me, and I wanted to make a completely new album. The music on Recovery came out very different from Relapse, and I think it deserves its own title.[80]

His seventh album was released on June 18.[80] In the US Recovery sold 741,000 copies during its first week, topping the Billboard
Billboard
200 chart.[81][82] Eminem's sixth consecutive US number-one album also topped the charts in several other countries. Recovery remained atop the Billboard 200
Billboard 200
chart for five consecutive weeks of a seven-week total.[83] Billboard
Billboard
reported that it was the bestselling album of 2010, making Eminem
Eminem
the first artist in Nielsen SoundScan history with two year-end bestselling albums.[84] Recovery is the bestselling digital album in history.[85] Its first single, "Not Afraid", was released on April 29 and debuted atop the Billboard
Billboard
Hot 100; its music video was released on June 4.[86] "Not Afraid" was followed by "Love the Way You Lie", which debuted at number two before rising to the top.[87] Although "Love the Way You Lie" was the bestselling 2010 single in the United Kingdom, it did not reach number one (the first time this has happened in the UK since 1969).[88] Despite criticism of its inconsistency, Recovery received positive reviews from most critics. As of November 21, 2010[update], the album had US sales of three million copies.[89] Recovery was the bestselling album worldwide in 2010, joining 2002's bestseller The Eminem Show
The Eminem Show
to give Eminem

two worldwide year-end number-one albums.[90] With Recovery, Eminem

broke the record for the most successive US number-one albums by a solo artist.[91]

listened to everything and that's what made him one of the greats".[175] In the book, other MCs also praise aspects of his rapping technique; varied, humorous subject matter,[176] connecting with his audience,[177] carrying a concept over a series of albums,[178] complex rhyme schemes,[179] bending words so they rhyme,[180] multisyllabic rhymes,[173] many rhymes to a bar,[181] complex rhythms,[182] clear enunciation[183] and the use of melody[184] and syncopation.[185] Eminem
Eminem
is known to write most of his lyrics on paper (documented in The Way I Am), taking several days or a week to craft lyrics,[186] being a "workaholic"[187] and "stacking" vocals.[188] Examples of hip hop subgenres that Eminem's music has been described as include horrorcore,[189][190][191] comedy hip hop,[192] and hardcore hip hop.[193][194] Alter egos Eminem

uses alter egos in his songs for different rapping styles and subject matter. His best-known alter ego, Slim Shady, first appeared on the Slim Shady EP. In this persona his songs are violent and dark, with a comic twist.[195] Eminem
Eminem
downplayed Slim Shady on Recovery because he felt it did not fit the album's theme.[196] Another character is Ken Kaniff, a homosexual who pokes fun at Eminem's songs. Ken was created and originally played by fellow Detroit
Detroit
rapper Aristotle on the Slim Shady LP, where Kaniff makes a prank call to Eminem. An argument after the album's release prompted Eminem
Eminem
to use the Kaniff character on Marshall Mathers and later albums (except Encore and Recovery).

They don't know what's in my head. I think maybe it helps, a little bit, with diversity, the sound of it, but also, I would get something in my head and want to be able to lay down that idea from scratch."[206] Comparisons with other artists As a white performer prominent in a genre influenced by black artists, Eminem

when Ontario
Ontario
Attorney General Jim Flaherty
Jim Flaherty
said that Eminem should not be allowed to enter the country. "I personally don't want anyone coming to Canada who will come here and advocate violence against women", he said. Flaherty also said that he was "disgusted" when he read the lyrics of "Kill You", which includes the lines "Slut, you think I won't choke no whore / Till the vocal cords don't work in her throat no more?" Although public reaction to Flaherty's position was generally negative, with barring Eminem
Eminem
from the country considered a free-speech issue, Liberal MPP Michael Bryant suggested that hate crime charges be brought against Eminem
Eminem
for advocating violence against women in his lyrics.[231] Robert Everett-Green wrote in a Globe and Mail editorial, "Being offensive is Eminem's job description".[232] Eminem's Toronto concert went on as planned.[233] Sanitation worker DeAngelo Bailey sued Eminem
Eminem
for $1 million in 2001, accusing him of invading his privacy by publicizing information placing him in a false light in "Brain Damage", a song which portrays him as a violent school bully. Although Bailey admitted picking on Eminem
Eminem
in school, he said he merely "bumped" him and gave him a "little shove". The lawsuit was dismissed on October 20, 2003; Judge Deborah Servitto, who wrote a portion of her opinion in rap-like rhyming verse, ruled that it was clear to the public that the lyrics were exaggerated.[234] On June 28, 2001, Eminem

threatened President George W. Bush[238] in "We As Americans" (an unreleased bootleg at the time), with the lyrics: "Fuck money, I don't rap for dead presidents. I'd rather see the president dead, it's never been said but I set precedents." The incident was included in the video for "Mosh", as a newspaper clipping on a wall with articles about unfortunate incidents in Bush's career. "We As Americans" eventually appeared on Encore's deluxe-edition bonus disc, with altered lyrics. In 2007, Eminem's music-publishing company (Eight Mile Style) and Martin Affiliated sued Apple Inc.
Apple Inc.
and Aftermath Entertainment, claiming that Aftermath was not authorized to negotiate a deal with Apple for digital downloads of 93 Eminem
Eminem
songs on Apple's iTunes.[239][240] The case against Apple was settled shortly after the trial began, in late September 2009.[241] In July 2010, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled in F.B.T. Productions, LLC v. Aftermath Records

Eminem
sampled Chicago-based rap group Hotstylz's 2008 viral hit, "Lookin' Boy", for his 2013 hit single, "Rap God". The group claims that Eminem
Eminem
did not receive permission to use the sample, nor did he credit or compensate them.[243] In November 2013, Hotstylz released a diss track towards Eminem
Eminem
titled "Rap Fraud", where they sample several of his songs and criticize him for not crediting them.[244][245] In January 2015, TMZ
TMZ
reported that Hotstylz was suing Eminem
Eminem
and his label, Shady Records, for $8 million, for using the 25 second sample of "Lookin' Boy" on his song "Rap God", without their permission.[246][247] Health issues Eminem
Eminem
has spoken publicly about his addiction to prescription drugs, including Vicodin, Ambien and Valium.[248] According to friend and fellow D12
D12
member Proof, Eminem
Eminem
first "sobered up" in 2002.[249] During the production of 8 Mile, Eminem, working 16 hours a day, developed insomnia. An associate gave him an Ambien tablet which "knocked [him] out", encouraging him to obtain a prescription. This was Eminem's first experience of drug addiction, which would affect him for several years. Near the end of production on Encore, he would "just go into the studio and goof off [with] a pocketful of pills". Eminem
Eminem
began taking the drugs to "feel normal", taking a "ridiculous amount [...] I could consume anywhere from 40 to 60 Valium [in a day]. Vicodin, maybe 30". The drugs would put him to sleep for no more than two hours, after which he would take more. Eminem's weight increased to 230 pounds (100 kg), and he was regularly eating fast food: "The kids behind the counter knew me – it wouldn't even faze them. Or I'd sit up at Denny's or Big Boy and just eat by myself. It was sad". Eminem
Eminem
became less recognizable due to his weight gain, and once overheard two teenagers arguing about whether or not it was him: " Eminem
Eminem
ain't fat."[16] In December 2007, Eminem
Eminem
was hospitalized after a methadone overdose he had first bought from a dealer who had told him it was "just like Vicodin, and easier on [your] liver". He continued to buy more, until he collapsed in his bathroom one night and was rushed to the hospital. Doctors there told him he had ingested the equivalent of four bags of heroin and was "about two hours from dying". After missing Christmas with his children, Eminem
Eminem
checked himself out of the facility weak and not fully detoxed. He tore the meniscus in his knee after falling asleep on his sofa, requiring surgery; after he returned home, he had a seizure. His drug use "ramped right back to where it was before" within a month. Eminem
Eminem
began to attend church meetings to get clean, but after he was asked for autographs he sought help from a rehabilitation counselor. He began an exercise program which emphasized running. Elton John
Elton John
was a mentor during this period, calling Eminem
Eminem
once a week to check on him.[16] In the book My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem, his mother stated that he has struggled with bipolar disorder throughout his life. She said it worsened after his ex-wife Kim Mathers gave birth to their daughter Hailie.[250] Allegations of Homophobia Some of Eminem's lyrics have been considered homophobic, and an Australian politician attempted to ban him from the country.[251] Eminem
Eminem
denies the charge, saying that when he was growing up words such as "faggot" and "queer" were used generally in a derogatory manner and not specifically toward homosexuals. During a 60 Minutes interview, journalist Anderson Cooper
Anderson Cooper
explored the issue:[252]

Cooper: Some of the lyrics, like, you know, in the song "Criminal" you say "My words are like a dagger with a jagged edge, That'll stab you in the head, whether you're a fag or lez, Or the homosex, hermaph or a trans-a-vest, Pants or dress—hate fags? The answer's 'yes'". Eminem: Yeah, this scene I came up in. That word was thrown around so much, you know, "faggot" was like thrown around constantly to each other, like in battling. Cooper: Do you not like gay people? Eminem: No, I don't have any problem with nobody. You know what I mean? I'm just like whatever.

When The New York Times
The New York Times
asked him of the legalization of same-sex marriage in Michigan, Eminem
Eminem
replied: "I think if two people love each other, then what the hell? I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want",[253] adding that his "overall look on things is a lot more mature than it used to be".[254] Several years later, Eminem
Eminem
was accused yet again of using homophobic words in his lyrics, and explained "I don't know how to say this without saying it how I've said it a million times. But that word, those kind of words, when I came up battle-rappin' or whatever, I never really equated those words..."[255] Impact
