Isn't she beautiful? And look! Em doesn't look like a little boy anymore.

I’m a huge Eminem fan.  HUGE.  Always have been, probably always will be, even after the rest of the world has forgotten his name.  From his “I just don’t give a fuck.” attitude, to his amazing amount of self-awareness, to his most recent feat of cleaning up and coming out with two new albums almost at once, this man has held me completely enthralled since I was a teenager.

A lot of people think he’s disgusting.  A hater of women, homosexuals, his neighbors, his fans, his family, people he doesn’t know, and you and me.  Matter of fact, the only people anyone can say he loves for sure are his daughters and his crew.

I won’t sit here and pretend some of his songs aren’t offensive.  I won’t claim he’s this super awesome person we should all emulate.  He’s made his mistakes.  He’s been in trouble.  And for all the people screaming about “Poor me.  I’m so famous that it’s ruined my rich little life, and I’m such a tortured artist.

On Thursday, M went to the horse track with His boss.  He could have begged out of the track part, I’m sure.  Heaven knows He has plenty of work to use as an excuse.  But He chose to stay and enjoy Himself.  Without me.

It’s not that He’s afraid to go places without me.  He’s just more comfortable with someone as familiar as I am in the room with Him.  Even if I’m on the other side hanging out with the girls.  Read more…
