During his thunderous Grammy performance Sunday night, Eminem wore a necklace that featured the Sobriety Circle & Triangle Symbol used by Alcoholics Anonymous.
The equilateral triangle on the rapper’s necklace represents the three-part answer - unity, recovery and service - to the disease.
The rapper who once made fun of Will Smith for saying "I don't have curse in my raps to sell records" during his Grammy acceptance speech, really seems to have matured.
Eminem - who took home two Grammys, rap album and rap solo - has dedicated his latest album, Recovery, to addictions he overcame.
In addition to battling alcohol, he has said that at one point, he was taking up to 20 pills a day, including Vicodin, Valium, Ambien and Methadone.
He has credited his daughter Hailie Jade and his two adopted daughters, Lainey and Whitney for his recovery. He said,
"I love them so much and they've helped me through so many things."
Aw, thats sweet.
Congrats on the win and sobritety Em! It's good to know that when you said -
"Shove a tie fighter up Perez Hilton's ass"
- in your last song you where completely sober.
