I feel old. Hailie Mathers, otherwise known as Eminem’s daughter, just graduated from high school. The beautiful blonde, was awarded Academic Excellence (receiving a 3.9 or higher) when she received her diploma from Chippewa Valley High School in Michigan. She was also the homecoming queen back in October. She will be attending Michigan State University for college. Hailie credited her achievements to her parents, stating:
“My mother and father are because they pushed me to be the person I am and have given me all the support to achieve what I have.”
Eminem’s hit, “Hailie’s Song,” came out back in 2002. Eminem (who’s real name is Marshall Mathers), shares his daughter with his ex-wife, Kim Scott, who he also sang about quite a bit- but often in a less…. positive tone.
In other news, Busta Rhymes and Eminem just released a collaboration, “Calm Down” this morning.
Eminem’s newest music video has just been released. ‘Space Bound’ features porn star (you know her from ‘Entourage’) Sasha Grey. The video shows Eminem strangling his girlfriend before shooting himself in the head.
I about jumped out of my couch in glee when Canada’s rock indie band Arcade Fire won last night for Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards! I absolutely LOVED the album “The Suburbs” one of my favorites of the year, for sure!
Was it surprising that an idie rock band, whose album has sold a mere 400,000 copies. Compare that to Lady Gaga’s “Fame Monster” which sold 5.8 million copies, and Eminem’s “Recovery” which sold 5.7 million.
Is Arcade Fire’s win an upset? Many sites are reporting the win a “shocking” one. Many suspected Lady Gaga’s, Lady Antebellum or Eminem would take home the prize.
After the win, the band tweeted: “OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. Thank you EVERYONE.”
What do you think? Who should have taken home the prize for Album of the Year in your opinion?
