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 :)

  • KellStar

    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.

  • keftedakia

    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.

  • eminem should just od

    eminem is a punk who uses other artists in his stupid rap….the guy should just OD

  • http://www.twitter.com/so_infamous miss infamous

    I dont like his new song :(

  • Donovan

    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!

  • mailey

  • dd

    @miss infamous:

  • dd

  • KiKi

    @eminem should just od: Sounds like you’re the punk. Wishing someone to OD? Get some help.

  • Lisa

    @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.

  • http://twitter.com/iFellytone iFellytone

    @Lisa: Yeah, which is why I was surprised

  • Little Monster

    some ways, he is a bad guy. I doubt his graduation

  • Lisa

    LOL @ my comment getting thumbed down. I guess the sarcasm went over people’s heads.

  • Jokergurl

    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.

  • Piper

  • X

    And this is precisely why I do NOT listen to the radio and longer.

  • OVER

    I love Eminem, Haters only hate on him so much because he really does dominate the Rap world and with Recovery sales being so good, and him still at #1 5 weeks later, just shows that he can out sale anyone right now.
    I’ve heard him say in many interviews he don’t see himself as “anyone special, I’m just a normal guy”. Its so true, this man has made millions way over $100,000,000 and half the time you see him he looks like any other guy, baggy sweat pants and a wife beater. He don’t rap about money, cars, or fame. He is emotional just as much as he is talented. He don’t listen to critics and often proves them wrong (Recovery scored a 59 with the critics look how that turned out, Straight to #1, stayed at #1 still at #1). I do enjoy his ego on the new album, the flow and wordplay are untouched. “When I die so does Hip Hop” – “I’m mopping the floors with them, I keep trying to pass it but they keep dropping the torch, and it won’t be long till this sport is over”. Hate him or love him, you can’t deny that his man has some serious skill. Not to mention he was just recognized as Artist of the Decade.

    Just my 2 cents 8]
