Eminem‘s daughter Hailie has suddenly gotten SO OLD – seriously, she’s in high school now! – and this past week, she was crowned Homecoming Queen at Chippewa Valley High School in Clinton Township, Michigan. She was voted for the title by fellow students and faculty, and while both her mother Kim and dad were on hand to watch her get crowned, though Eminem was nice enough to watch from inside the school so that he didn’t cause a fuss.
“Hailie came out with her mother Kim (Scott) when she was introduced with all the other kids but her father watched from inside the school because he didn’t want to cause a scene — he wanted Hailie to have her own moment,” a parent of a Chippewa Valley student told the Macomb Daily.
“He opened the door and looked out like, ‘That’s my daughter!’ He just looked like a proud father.”
Well, isn’t Eminem is a sweetie?
It’s still so crazy how big Hailie is now. It makes me feel incredibly old. Wasn’t she about 5 years old when he started rapping? Ahh!

You may or may not have heard Eminem‘s new single, ‘Berzerk’ just yet (I’ll embed it below), but he’s been working on the video for the song – which will feature on The Marshall Mathers LP II – for a while now. Of course, what good is just releasing the thing when you can put out a “teaser” first? That’s where the image above comes in: Eminem stands in front of some speakers with Rick Rubin. Oooh, exciting!
I’ll be honest: I’m not a massive Eminem fan, but he does have a few songs that get me all emotional because they’re just so honest and painful (‘Mockingbird’ KILLS ME, every time), but in general he makes a lot of racket and isn’t really my favourite rapper. You can’t argue that he’s not incredibly talented, though, so I hope this album does well for him. He’s been through a lot of shit and come out the other side of it still fighting, so good for him.
Anyway, if a photo teaser wasn’t enough, here’s the video clip he premiered in ESPN the other day in the middle of a game. LOL, why? I dunno, let’s just go with it.
Eminem has been working on his big comeback and before headlining the Reading and Leeds Festival next weekend, he decided to give a nice, intimate concert for 80,000 of his biggest fans in Slane, Ireland on Saturday night. It was all honky dory until police started arresting people for various bullshit… over 50 of them, in fact. Sounds like trouble!
Twenty-two people have been arrested for public order offences at Eminem concert at Slane in the Irish Republic.
There were a further 35 arrests for minor drug offences, five reported assaults and one person was detained for driving while under the influence.
Superintendent Michael Devine said most of the 80,000 fans were well behaved during Saturday night’s gig.
“The vast majority of fans heeded the advice given in advance of the event which ensured everyone had a safe and enjoyable experience,” said Mr Devine.
A huge security operation was put in place after nine people were injured during violence at a concert at Pheonix Park last year.
Around 750 Garda officers were on duty with an additional 500 local stewards on the ground to ensure public safety. Revellers were also searched at three different entry points with officers looking out for alcohol, drugs and weapons.
God, people can’t even light up a blunt at a rap concert in peace anymore. As for the assaults and the DUIs, those people deserved to have the cuffs slapped on. Good to see Eminem hasn’t lost his edge, though… or something.
