Friday, Oct 8, 2010 4:39PM
Grammy-winning rapper Eminem reveals his decision to keep his home profanity-free on an upcoming "60 Minutes" interview set to air this weekend.
Speaking with reporter Anderson Cooper, Em explains his decision to keep his Detroit home radio-friendly.
"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], 'B*tch, pick this up,' you know what I mean? ... I don't cuss." (Us Magazine)
The special also provides viewers with an in-depth look at Em's thought process.
"People say that the word orange doesn't rhyme with anything and that kind of pisses me off because I can think of a lot of things that rhyme with orange," says Eminem, who then starts rapping rhymes for orange for Cooper and the cameras. (CBS News)
Within the broadcast, Em will reflect on his career and Detroit upbringing.
During the interview, which airs Sunday October 10 on the CBS television network show, Eminem also discusses his childhood, his rise in the music industry, being white in the predominantly black rap world, and his drug addiction. Additionally, Eminem takes Cooper through the rhyming process and to his hometown of Detroit, Michigan. (ABC News)
