Eminem may curse like a trucker 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 this 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…”
The 37-year-old father of three girls – biological daughter Hailie, 15 in December, and two adopted daughters, Alaina and Whitney – says that he puts his girls first.
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 toward his young fans who might learn to cuss from his songs, the rapper says, “I feel like it’s your job to parent them. If you’re the parent, be a parent.”
