Eminem Was On Death's Door?

| Filed under: Eminem


With a new album coming out, Eminem is coming clean about what the music on this disc means to him and how the word Recovery is more than just a title.

While at the E3 video game convention, Eminem talked to Showbiz Tonight about his fight with addiction. He opened up about overdosing and being "hours away" from death. However, the hardest part for him, through it all, was acknowledging he had a problem:

“It took me awhile to admit I actually did have a problem," the musician said. "In the hip-hop world that I live in, it can be mistaken for weakness and the last thing you want to do in hip-hop is admit that you're weak. But if I didn't admit I was weak with this certain thing I was going to die."

And though he managed to bounce back and get clean, he admits he isn't quite sure how to advise other artists in the business to do the same. He says:

“That's a tough question. I don't know how you avoid it. I mean, I could say the cliched things, make sure you stay on the right path, you make the right decisions in life. 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."

We're sure it was tough, but it's almost nice to see someone come back from this kind of thing. Gives hope to those still fighting through their demons.

Stay strong, bb! We don't want the next album to be called Relapse.

    He is TRASH, always has been and always will be. He is nasty to other people and kharma will take care of him.

  17. 17

    Re: Curious Yellow – He does have the hot squirrel look….I kid…I kid…..he's alright….just his cheeks look a little swollen on that pic.

  18. 18

    You wrote: "We're sure it was tough, but it's almost nice to see someone come back from this kind of thing." What the hell does that even mean? It's almost nice? Did you even finish 4th grade?

  19. 19

    You retards! Do you do any fact checking at ALL?????? He DOES have an album called Relapse! Perez/Barbara/whoever writes this drivel is totally incompetent.

  20. 20

    Death's door? He should've knocked and opened it.

  21. 21

    OMG perez, you are a fucking moron. His last album was called relapse.. do you know anything?? I love Eminem, and aren't you always talking shit about him? Why are you kissing his ass now? Anyways, Recovery is the best album I have heard in a long time.

  22. 22

    Re: crazed – DUDE.. RECOVERY is out already.. leaked like 2 weeks ago… google it till it POPS UP!

  23. 23

    mario, dumbass…his last album WAS CALLED RELAPSE….

  24. 24

    Re: suckshitpig – so? People are still going to buy it to support Eminem. They should, anyway. It's a masterpiece.

  25. 25

    his last album was 'relapse' and now he's comin out with 'recovery'….his new album is SICK! i can't wait to buy it. i mean, i have it right now, but i want to pay for it and support the album.

    shit is tough, it's tough to admit you have a problem and put drugs down. it's even harder to stay off of them.

    and perez, you can make fun of people all you want, it's funny. BUT it is nice to see that when it really comes down to it, you support healthy decisions. it shows character. you don't want anyone to truly be harmed. that's what these kids that post talking shit need to realize. there are a lot of people i hate and make fun of people, but i would never want them to be stuck in drug addiction or any other disease.

    people can make fun of people and then wish them well when they have a serious issue. some of you kiddies need to get a clue!

    Re: suckshitpig – leaking…and the album actually being out are two different things.

    Eminem's quote is odd. He kept refering to it his addiction as a "certain thing." Weird. Why not say, "I had an addiction to crack." Or "people are doing heroin in the clubs." I don't get it. Why so vague? And what exactly was he addicted to? Prescription pills?

    Fuck this no talent fuck.

  32. 32

    good thing to him for admitting EVERYONE'S ON IT… perez you KNOW gaga os a cokehead report on it all these celebs are and its just not okay especially when they dont mention coke in their amazing "diets" and make all these girls starve themselves

  33. 7tizz says – reply to this


    Man, if someone should've ODd on drugs, it's this guy. Way to not die like a true rock star…fucking poser.

  34. 34

    Re: gly15 – Hey I think he said it was sleeping pills. He could not sleep then he got addicted. But, he is looking better. Stay strong Eminem.

  35. 35

    PEREZ WROTE: "Gives us hope to those still fighting through their DEMONS".
    This is prophetic, Eminen is possessed by demons and is battling them for sanity, he openly raps about it in his lyrics but the dumbed down masses think its for shock value?

  36. 36

    I'm glad you are saying something nice about him Perez cause I did see your tweets to him. Actually, it shows how strong he is by getting help. I really love what I'm hearing on this cd. On my list to buy.

  37. 37

    I feel like this is a re-post…

    Re: Paris France – sleeping pills

  39. 39

  40. 40

    I love you but….he already had an album called Relapse

  41. 41

    In my opinion Eminem is the best rapper of all time. He is always evolving and cutting edge. Can't wait for his new album.

  42. 42

    Re: kaylzx – Agreed, I always DL his stuff and then buy it too… What's $19.00 for the all the enjoyment it gives me.. WELL WORTH IT!

  43. 43

    Re: gly15 – EM was addicted to Vicodin (Narcotic similar to oxi-contin) He was taking Ambien all the time and also used Methadone (used to help opiate addiction) He took plenty of valium and he abused alcohol also (and his girlfriends too probably.. lol) not funny!

    Kids, DRUGS are bad…… Don't take them MmmmmmKay?

  44. 44

    I can only think WOMAN when I look at him. Lesbo with a shaved head. He is a WOOOOOMMMAAAAAAANN. Did you see him on Showbiz Tonight? LADY!

  45. 45

    he's addicted to plastic surgery and mariah's ass too but LEGENDARY MARIAH CAREY shits on you boy!!

    Re: Loverboy19 – That's dandy, cuz she ain't right, and esp. not right for him.

  47. hebe says – reply to this


    Umm.. Didn't you hate eminem? Now he's coming back, better than ever and you're like "stay strong bb" ?? Ewwww

  48. 48

    so glad eminem fought through his problem and overcome it, just shows how strong he is. i love recovery!

  49. 49

    his last album was called relapse, dipshit

  50. 50

    Yeah, you were insuling Eminem by calling him "Feminem" (whatever the hell that's supposed to mean) while he was struggling with the death of his best friend and addiction. Good one. YOU, Perez, are such an A-hole that sooner or later you WILL get what is coming to you. The funny thing is…Eminem would never even acknowledge Perez because Perez is NOTHING. I bet if you asked Eminem about Perez, he would be like, "Who the F is that?" LULZ

  51. Zoffy says – reply to this


    Way to go for Eminem…glad he is back! Last album was crap…really liking that he is going back to his roots!

  52. 52

    You, for once, said something nice about this guy but then, at the end, you have to mess it up with your little snide comment "…we don't want the next album to be called Relapse…" What kind of crap is that? Try being nice to ppl from the beginning to the end, it will help your ratings a LOT!!!!!!

  53. 53

    How long before the Scientologists get their mitts on him…

  54. 54

    You can tell that Eminem has sucked a lot of dick in his lifetime. I'm waiting for him to finally finish coming outta da closet! Hurry up, already, E.! I wanna see his hairy ass marching in Gay Pride! He can even play a free concert there.

  55. 55

    Overrated BS

  56. 56

    Re: Gary78 – Best comment here. Eminem is overrated Bullsh*t.

  57. 57

    Re: Gary78 – Best comment here. Eminem is overrated Bullsh*t. Media creation, just like Rihanna. Absolute rubbish, both of them.
