Despite its massive popularity, rap star Eminem recently admitted he did not dig too much on social media.
"Honestly, I don't know because I don't really, that's a hard question to answer too because I honestly don't really pay attention to that part of it," Em said in an interview when asked how he handles the pressure of today's social media outlets. "I don't sit on a computer. I tweet. I get my tweet on. [laughs] Nah. I don't really follow that stuff, man, I just, you know, I just want to say this: I just rap. And I'm going to keep saying that because that's all I do. I actually don't want to keep saying that but that's all I do. So, to just keep giving the same answer, it's really all I do. You know what I'm saying? I don't even shower. I did today because I knew I was doing this interview. [laughs]" ("Rap City")
Recently, Young Money's Drake said the authenticity and realness of Twitter should be examined more closely by users.
"Twitter isn't real, by the way. There's no gauge on real life on Twitter," Drizzy argued. "That's a terrible medium to exist in. You can enjoy it. You can even indulge in it. Just don't live your life by that weird code on that Internet program." (CRWN)
Last year, West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar admitted seeing fellow artists fall victim to social networking had him wary of his interest in it.
"That's why I try my best to stay away from social media as much as possible. [laughs] When you go on your Twitter or look down your Timeline and it's all great positivity--I love that. But at the same time, it can really divert you from what your purpose is or what you're trying to do. And I've seen artists get caught up in that. I've seen some of my friends get caught in that. Whether you're a small celebrity or a grand celebrity, it really triggers something in your brain, seeing all that stuff . . . So I'm real aware of it." (Interview Magazine)
