If anyone can talk about transcending weird hobbity quirks, it’s Ed Sheeran!
On Monday evening, the 24-year-old was being honored at the American Institute for Stuttering’s Freeing Voices Changing Lives Benefit Gala and gave a lovely speech about overcoming handicaps, specifically his stutter. Said Sheeran:
“I was a very, very weird child. I had a port-wine stain birthmark on my face that I got lasered off when I was very young; one day, they forgot to put the anesthetic on, and ever since then, I had a stutter. Stuttering was actually the least of my problems!
My Uncle Jim told my dad that Eminem was the next Bob Dylan – it’s pretty similar, it’s all just storytelling – so my dad bought me The Marshall Mathers LP when I was 9 years old, not knowing what was on it. I learned every word of it, back to front, by the time I was 10. He raps very fast and melodically and percussively, and it helped me get rid of the stutter.”
Eminem inspired Ed Sheeran. INTERESTING! He also talked about how being cool isn’t important…in fact, being uncool is WAYYYY better.
“Even if you have quirks and weirdness, you shouldn’t be worried about that. The people I went to school with that were the most normal and were the coolest when we grew up – I was telling Emily [Blunt] earlier that one of the cool kids from school now does my plumbing!
That’s a fact! If you try to be the cool kid in class, you’ll end up very boring and doing plumbing for someone who apparently wasn’t that cool. Be yourself. Embrace your quirks. Being weird is a wonderful thing. … I have a f–king football team now, that’s pretty cool!”
Hear that, weirdos of the world?

Though I usually think of Eminem as an angry, violent rapper- this story really shows that the dude has a good heart.
Eminem caught wind of 17-year-old Gage Garmo- who has been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer- three days ago, when Gage’s friends and family started up the hashtag #GetGageGarmoToMeetEminem in an effort to bring star and fan together.
And…it worked! Learning Gage had only one week to live, Eminem arranged for a home visit at Gage’s place in Michigan, which, oddly enough, is only about 20 minutes from where the rapper lives.
The best part about this story is that Eminem was adamant that he didn’t want the visit to be a huge media thing, and he kept the whole thing on the DL when he arrived to Gage’s home around 5PM Sunday. The two spent around an hour together, talking and hanging out…but the visit meant the world to the teenager.
Eminem, you’re a pretty good dude, you know that?

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea is hitting back at Eminem on Twitter after he started a battle with her over some rape comments in a recent song. The song is called “Vegas” and here are part of the lyrics:
“So, what’s it gon’ be?
Put that sh-t away, Iggy
