Eminem Compares Drug Problem to Michael Jackson’s — Say What!
In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Eminem compared his battle with drug addiction to Michael Jackson‘s, revealing that he used to take up to 90 prescription pills per day. “It’s very similar to what I’ve read about Michael,” Em said. “I don’t know exactly what he was doing, but I read that he kept getting up in the middle of the night, asking for more [drugs]. That’s what I was doing….I was taking so many pills that I wasn’t even taking them to get high anymore. I was taking them to get normal…I want to say in a day I could consume anywhere from 40 to 60 Valium. And Vicodin? Maybe 20, 30. My everyday regimen would be, wake up in the morning and take an extra strength Vicodin and it’d be Vicodin throughout the day. Then, as the evening crept up, I’d start with a Valium or two, or three, or four. And every hour on the hour, I’d pop four or five more.” Wow. Not even sure how that’s possible. [RollingStone]
Nicki Minaj is not worried about first week sales for her debut album ‘Pink Friday.’ “It doesn’t matter if I sell 80,000 or 800,000 in the first week,” she said. “Eventually the album will be multi-platinum, because it’s a body of amazing work. I don’t have any fear about dropping the same day as Kanye. People like good music and when they hear good music, they’re going to buy it.” Yeah, people are totally gonna “buy it.” [Rap-Up]
