Did anyone check out the Eminem interview on 60 Minutes this week? Â That was equal parts inspiring and baffling. Â 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. Â 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. Â 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. Â Eminem replied, “No I don’t have any problem with nobody, you know what I mean? Like, I’m just whatever.” Â Um, okay. Â 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”? Â I’d like to see him answer that question for real at some point.
