Eminem is not prejudiced. He just wants everybody to be “equally miserable.” Despite nearly all of his albums being accused of containing homophobic lyrics, which have provoked gay rights groups like GLAAD to speak out against him, the rapper voiced his support for the rights of homosexuals to wed. He has claimed that the lyrics in question were satirical.
“I think if two people love each other, then what the hell?” Eminem said in a New York Times interview to be published on Sunday (June 20). “I think everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable.”
He further explained his attitude adjustment and newfound maturity in the interview.
“I think I’ve calmed down a bit,” he claimed. “My overall look on things is a lot more mature than it used to be.”
Eminem’s latest album, Recovery, is to be released June 21, though the album has already been leaked on the Internet illegally. Its first single, “Not Afraid,” debuted at No. 1 on the charts.
