Did anyone check out the Eminem interview on 60 Minutes this week?  That was equal parts inspiring and baffling.  On the one hand, the guy has just come back from a tremendous several-year struggle with addiction and scraping the bottom of the career barrel, and now he’s back on top of his game.  In addition, he came across as a responsible and caring father, taking care not only of his own daughter, but also two other children that are not technically his.  The only kind of awkward moment was when Anderson Cooper asked Eminem if he did or did not like gay people, a rather timely question considering the recent series of suicides prompted by homophobic bullying.  Eminem replied, “No I don’t have any problem with nobody, you know what I mean? Like, I’m just whatever.”  Um, okay.  Off and on during the interview they kept talking about how Eminem is a veritable genius with words, and yet the best the word genius can come up with is, “like, I’m just whatever”?  I’d like to see him answer that question for real at some point.
