Eminem Covers Billboard, Tops Album Sales

Eminem Covers Billboard, Tops Album Sales

Eminem‘s new album, Recovery, will bring in the biggest sales week of 2010 (he’s on pace to move 700K units).

Here’s what the 37-year-old rapper shared with Billboard on being the best-selling artist of the last decade: “I don’t think I’ve actually stopped to think about it. I never thought that my life would amount to this. But to be able to sit back and digest it is so strange to me, because I still feel so regular. I don’t understand what people think the big deal is about me. It’s a very strange relationship that I have with fame.”

Eminem recently backed gay marriage.

Below is the video of Eminem presenting the “Top Ten Eminem Pieces Of Advice For The Kids” from earlier this week.

    Love Eminem!! His album, Recovery, was brilliant! It is on constant replay in my ipod.
    And I loved advice number #2 and #3 :)

    I find it hard to believe he’s never sat back and reflected on his fame since it’s been a recurring theme in his songs. I guess that sheer magnitude of the fame would be hard for anyone to fully digest.

    thank you jared for posting smth about Eminem. It’s great to have him back. Eminem is very simple and cool, he still lives in Detroit with his 3 daughters and lives a normal life except when promoting or touring.

    Donovan Says:

    Where’s his documentary MTV? He’s selling way more than Drake! I don’t care for his new stuff personally but still, it seems odd that Drake is the one getting all this promo and Eminem barely got any and he’s doing it this big!

    @iFellytone: Sure you didn’t. That’s why he’s the best selling artist of the decade and all of his albums go to number 1 because hardly anyone listens to him. LMAO.

    iFellytone Says:

    @Lisa: Yeah, which is why I was surprised

    I will admit I will miss the Slim Shady persona, just because of the ridiculousness of it all, but I’m glad he’s sober and doing well.
