Eminem On Brittany Murphy’s Death And His Near Overdose “It Creeps Me The Fu*k Out”

- By Bossip Staff

Eminem and Dr. Dre will also cover VIBE’s August/September Juice issues, the same issue that features Diddy and his team on the alternate cover. Keep reading for excerpts of VIBE’s interview with Em

For the new August/September issue VIBE spoke with Eminem about his recovery from prescription drug abuse and his reaction to 8 Mile co-star Brittany Murphy’s death:


Do you think about your own death?

Yeah, I do. A lot. I think about it a lot. I try not to think about it but I do and it creeps me the fu*k out. It creeps me out because they say that if I got to the hospital two hours later then I would be gone. I think about that a lot. When I lay in bed at night is when I think about it the most. It creeps me out man.


What were your thoughts when you heard that your 8 Mile co-star Brittany Murphy had passed?

It was crazy. It’s crazy. It’s crazy because at one point we were very close and she was a really good person. It’s crazy when you see things not just with her but just all these things that are happening in Hollywood with people in music, with people in acting . . .

. . . famous people.
Famous people. Famous people are overdosing at alarming rates and—that almost sounded like a commercial. Wow.

It sounded like a Sally Struthers commercial. “Please give to this charity.”

Right. But they are. And it’s one of those things man where you’re famous, doctors will kiss your ass because they love the celebrity. “Oh, I can call up Eminem and get him on the phone right now. Oh, hi Marshall, how are you doing? Do you need that [prescription]?” There are doctors that will give you certain things just because of who you are.

That’s really sad… Doctors do share the responsibility for these deaths, but celebrities can’t entirely blame their addictions on starstruck doctors.

It’s good to see Eminem speak out so honestly about his struggle with addiction. We hope he’s able to maintain his sobriety and live to continue to enjoy his success.

    I found out that calling a white person a “c.u.n.t” really pi$$es them off, to them it’s the same as if they were to call us the n-word. i don’t know if I’m late finding this out but I still just wanna pass it along 🙂

I have never been on tv and having to discuss it sometimes some of the most embarrassing moments ever for me….but i’m 1012 days clean and there is no mutha f-ing way it’s going into my body as i’ve been on that hospital bed.
