Drug addiction nearly killed me: Eminem

Jun 28 2013, 4:13am CDT | by

Los Angeles, June 28 (IANS) Rapper Eminem once thought he was going to die because of his addiction to prescription drugs. He said that his dependency on drugs almost killed him.

Los Angeles, June 28 — Rapper Eminem once thought he was going to die because of his addiction to prescription drugs. He said that his dependency on drugs almost killed him.

The "Lose Yourself" rapper also admitted that he went to rehab for treatment and is happy that he is no more dependent on drugs, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"When I took my first Vicodin, it was like this feeling of 'Ahh'. Like everything was not only mellow, but I didn't feel any pain," said Eminem in new documentary "How To Make Money Selling Drugs".

"I don't know at what point exactly it started to be a problem. I just remember liking it more and more. People tried to tell me that I had a problem. I would say, 'Get that ******* person outta here. I can't believe they said that **** to me. I'm not out there shooting heroin. I'm not ****** out there putting coke up my nose. I'm not smoking crack'." he said.

"Xanax, Valium, tomato, tomatoe, it's same thing ... **** it, take it," he added.

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, also mentioned one incident where he was rushed to the hospital.

"Had I got to the hospital about two hours later, I would have died. My organs were shutting down. My liver, kidneys, everything. They were gonna have to put me on dialysis. They didn't think I was gonna make it. My bottom was gonna be death," he said.

The 40-year-old insisted that detoxing was a huge struggle.

"Coming off everything, I was literally up 24 hours a day for three weeks straight. And I mean, not sleeping, not even nodding off for a ******* minute," he said.

He added: "I had to regain motor skills, I had to regain talking skills. It's been a learning process, I'm growing. I couldn't believe that anybody could be naturally happy without being on something. So I would say to anybody, 'It does get better'."

Ariana Grande on the 1990s: ‘I remember so much. That was such a vivid time’

Aug 28 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Ariana Grande is a beautiful doll. A doll with ten pounds of extensions, weaves and wigs. A doll that will only consent to being photographed on its left side. A doll with a decent voice. A doll that sings off-key a little bit live. Still, Ariana is a thing a now and she’s skyrocketed to fame relatively quickly (within a year, basically). Ariana is still promoting her new album and all of her singles (which are all charting). Time Magazine sat down with Ariana to talk about the ...

Now we’re getting to the stragglers of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. These are the celebs who didn’t jump in right away with simple, easily executed entries. The ones who waited have been going the extra mile to bring attention to the ALS cause. Like Chris Evans in a suit or Cumby’s amazing anthology video.
