Much to my disbelief, Eminem turned THIRTY NINE FLIPPING YEARS OLD TODAY. What the what? Is our beloved Slim Shady really that close to the big 4-0? Not that it matters. He's still rockin' it as hard as he did in the '90s; I must admit that I've listened to "Lighters" an obscene number of times in the past few months (including at this very moment).
Eminem AND Bruno Mars. That's gangsta bliss.
Now don't tell me that I'm sipping on the haterade, because I actually think that Eminem's sweet. He started rapping at the age of 14 (I'm pretty sure I was just discovering MTV and thinking that Room Raiders was super-scandalous at that age) and dropped out of high school when he was 17. Okay, I don't condone the education-fail, but he sure was progressive with his career. He raps like an utter champ and has a beat-your-ass-but-perhaps-in-a-friendly-manner persona. I mean, doesn't he just lose some of the scary when he's wearing glasses?
