Eminem censors himself



Eminem censors himself
Despite the liberal use of expletives in the average Eminem sentence it appears that Slim Shady draws the line at playing his music to his young daughter, Hailie.

Talking to MTV about a song on which his daughter contributes a few lines he revealed that he insists that she listens to clean versions of his songs.
“I have a clean version that I made that I play for her,” he said. “There’s a couple of cuss words that can slip by and that’s cool with me as long as she knows not to repeat them.
“I’m not gonna’ front, some of my songs got a lot of a little bit too much for a six-year-old.”

This apparent double-standard is bound to court the wrath of American parents’ groups for whom Eminem is public enemy number one.
The track on which Hailie features on the Eminem album is called ‘My Dad’s Gone Crazy’ and it came about when Eminem’s daughter was waiting in the studio watching her father deliver his rhymes in the vocal booth.
“One day we was in the studio doing a song and she was like, ‘Somebody please help me I think my Dad’s gone crazy.’
“I was like, ‘Hailie, what did you say?’ She said it again and she was like, ‘Daddy I wanna’ say it on the mic.'”
