Rap icon Eminem’s unstable early home life and battle with addiction fueled a brilliant career spitting intense, clever and controversial rhymes. Born Marshall Mathers III in 1972, he spent his formative years in Detroit, where he discovered a love of hip-hop and began participating in open-mic contests. The development of his violent Slim Shady alter ego kicked off his career in earnest: He was discovered by producer Dr. Dre, who was criticized for promoting a white rapper. But Eminem’s talent was undeniable, and he won Best Rap Album Grammy Awards for his first three multiplatinum albums, ‘The Slim Shady LP’ (1999), ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ (2000) and ‘The Eminem Show’ (2002). He starred in the 2002 semi-autobiographial film ‘8 Mile’ and became the first rapper ever to win an Academy Award, for the movie’s signature song, ‘Lose Yourself.’
Eminem's daughter, Hailie Jade Scott Mathers, is all grown up now! The 18-year-old subject of 'Hailie's Song' graduated from her high school Summa Cum Laude and plans on attending Michigan State University.
Eminem has released the music video for his new single 'Headlights' and the timing of the debut isn't coincidental, as given that today is Mother's Day, the song is a deeply personal message of apology to Eminem's own mother, Debbie Mathers.
Eminem and Rihanna certainly brought the energy with their power-packed performance of 'The Monster' at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. The Detroit rapper and Barbadian beauty rocked the mic as they sang and rapped one of the biggest (and best) songs of 2014.
The 2014 Lollapalooza lineup has been revealed and boy, is it good! Eminem will headline the annual (and formerly traveling) event, set for Aug. 1 through Aug. 3 at Grant Park in Chicago, as will Outkast, Kings of Leon and Skrillex.
The partnership between Rihanna and Eminem isn't merely one of hit singles. The twosome, who followed up the smash 'Love the Way You Lie' with 'The Monster,' will also hit the road together for this summer's The Monster Tour.
Diverse acts such as Eminem, Kings of Leon and Skrillex are set to headline the upcoming Lollapalooza music festival. Though the official lineup won't be announced until next week, sources have confirmed that the three acts (all Lollapalooza vets) will once again take the stage.
