A lot of the problems I had with fame I was bringing on myself. A lot of self-loathing, a lot of woe-is-me. Now I'm learning to see the positive side of things, instead of, like, 'I can't go to Kmart. I can't take my kids to the haunted house.'Eminem
A lot of truth is said in jest.Eminem
Anybody with a sense of humor is going to put on my album and laugh from beginning to end.Eminem
Anything I've ever said, I certainly was feeling at the time.Eminem
Before I was famous, when I was just working in Gilbert's Lodge, everything was moving in slow motion.Eminem
Honestly, I'd love to be remembered as one of the best to ever pick up a mic, but if I'm doing my part to lessen some racial tension I feel good about what I'm doing.Eminem
I didn't have nothin' going for me... school, home... until I found something I loved, which was music, and that changed everything.Eminem
I don't hate women - they just sometimes make me mad.Eminem
I don't think I've ever read poetry, ever.Eminem
I love the attention but I don't like too much of it.Eminem
I need drama in my life to keep making music.Eminem
I say what I want to say and do what I want to do. There's no in between. People will either love you for it or hate you for it.Eminem
I think my first album opened a lot of doors for me to push the freedom of speech to the limit.Eminem
I try to treat all the money I'm making like it's the last time I'm going to make it.Eminem
I'd go to, like, six different schools in one year. We were on welfare, and my mom never ever worked.Eminem
I've accomplished enough with the music that I haven't had to go out there and do other things to over-saturate.Eminem
If people take anything from my music, it should be motivation to know that anything is possible as long as you keep working at it and don't back down.Eminem
If there's not drama and negativity in my life, all my songs will be really wack and boring or something.Eminem
It feels good to have your work respected again.Eminem
Music is so therapeutic for me that if I can't get it out, I start feeling bad about myself - a lot of self-loathing.Eminem
My father? I never knew him. Never even seen a picture of him.Eminem
People can try to reinvent themselves. I don't think you can really change who you are, though, because who you are is pretty much where you came from and what you've done up to now.Eminem
Personally, I just think rap music is the best thing out there, period. If you look at my deck in my car radio, you're always going to find a hip-hop tape that's all I buy, that's all I live, that's all I listen to, that's all I love.Eminem
Say there's a white kid who lives in a nice home, goes to an all-white school, and is pretty much having everything handed to him on a platter - for him to pick up a rap tape is incredible to me, because what that's saying is that he's living a fantasy life of rebellion.Eminem
Sometimes I feel like rap music is almost the key to stopping racism.Eminem
The details surrounding both my marriage and subsequent filing for divorce are private, and I had hoped to keep them that way for the sake of my family.Eminem
The kids are old enough now - I just want to let them be kids. I don't want to comment on them too much. They're at an age where I just want to let them be kids.Eminem
The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.Eminem
Trust is hard to come by. That's why my circle is small and tight. I'm kind of funny about making new friends.Eminem
Ultimately, who you choose to be in a relationship with and what you do in your bedroom is your business.Eminem
Well, I'm working all the time to stay out of trouble!Eminem
You know, fame is a funny thing, man, especially, you know, actors, musicians, rappers, rock singers, it's kind of a lifestyle and it's easy to get caught up in it - you go to bars, you go to clubs, everyone's doing a certain thing... It's tough.Eminem
You're not going to say anything about me that I'm not going to say about myself. There's so many things that I think about myself if someone really wanted to get at me, they could say this and this and this. So I'm going to say it before they can. It's the best policy for me.Eminem
