Eminem is a new man. Not only is he toning down the violent rap lyrics in his new album Recovery, he's officially a supporter of gay marriages.
"I think if two people love each other, then what the hell?" he told NY Times. "I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want."
"It’s the new tolerant me!" says the rapper.
Em admits that his new album is much tamer than what we're used to.
"Shady still exists," he says.
"But I don’t think the subjects on this record call for, you know, bring the chainsaws and axes out and murder everyone on this record. 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."
But he certainly doesn't regret anything he's said in the past. "Anything I’ve ever said, I certainly was feeling at the time," he tells The Times. "But I think I’ve calmed down a bit. My overall look on things is a lot more mature than it used to be."
Eminem has been sober for two years now and we're liking the new Em.
