Back in 2007 he overdosed on prescription drugs and Eminem has been on a non-stop path to physical and emotional health ever since.
The 42-year-old Grammy-winner told Men's Journal that early on he fought an uphill battle against the excess weight brought on by his addiction- "In 2007, I overdosed on pills, and I went into the hospital. I was close to 230 pounds. I'm not sure how I got so big, but I have ideas. The coating on the Vicodin and the Valium I'd been taking for years leaves a hole in your stomach, so to avoid a stomachache, I was constantly eating — and eating badly."
His lyrical prowess is second to none, and Eminem dropped by “Sway in the Morning” to perform an acapella freestyle rap that included plenty of celebrity targets.
In addition to Amanda Bynes, Christina Aguilera, Miley Cyrus, Rita Ora, Azalea Banks, Hillary Clinton and Bill Cosby, the “Real Slim Shady” rapper made sure to mention transgender star of the moment Caitlyn Jenner.
