Eminem Says He’s Pro Gay Marriage

Though Eminem has caused some controversy with homophobic statements and lyrical content in the past, it seems that his well-publicized “recovery” has come with a bit of maturity.

In an interview with The New York Times Magazine, which hits newsstands this Sunday, June 20, Em was asked whether he’d support a gay marriage bill if presented in Michigan. The Detroit rapper replied that he would — in typical Slim Shady fashion. “I think if two people love each other, then what the hell?” he said. “I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want.”

Em went on to say that his newfound tolerance stems from an “overall look on things [that] is a lot more mature than it used to be.” He also stated that his more devious alter ego, Slim Shady, is on leave for now.

“Shady still exists. But I don’t think the subjects on this record call for, you know, bringing the chainsaws and axes out and murder[ing] everyone,” Em explained. “There was so much stuff like that off the last record that I felt like I was starting to run it into the ground. I think consciously I went in a different direction with this record.”

Eminem’s seventh album, ‘Recovery,’ is in stores June 21.
