MOJO:KIM WHY DON'T YOU CALL US MORE OFTEN?

Mojo: eminem is on the phone with us right now and happy birthday brother!
Em: thank you. Thank you!
Mojo: how are you doin?
Em: Im good besides waking up to this!
Mojo: yeah I dont think u want a family fued like this on your birthday!
Em: thats not family tho
Mojo: not technically
Em: not technically and never was a nanny there was never anyone paid, how u doin jenny!
Mojo : wow (laughs) she took off shes already walked out she obviously afraid of facing you
Em: let me just say this to clear the air, I just heard kim's response and I will back her up 100% those two girls are
just like eachother, everything jenny says about kim is vice versa. Ive known both of these girls for a long time but Jenny
has not known me for that long.. Jenny was cut out of the circle, her leaving her husband for me was very true! I guess that
me paying 6 months rent for her on her apartment when she wanted to leave her husband and setting her all up wasnt enough
for her. Its so funny when you give someone a little bit of leeway and see what they gonna do, and BAM they write a book about
you. As far as the shit about Fred Durst, and my ex Body guard, I fear no man! I fear no man! ,so shes making up stories god
only knows whats in that book. But the stuff about Fred Durst.,and all that I fear no man the only thing I feared was Fred
pressing charges against me for making that song he was gonna take it to the cops and say it was a threat thats what I fear,
going to jail, Me,myself,marshall mathers fears NO man!
Mojo: On the phone with us right now is Eminem on his 30th birthday he wakes up to a tell all book
Mojo: just watch the language.
Em: oh were live?
Mojo: Your at home getting ready to celebrate your 30th birthday you hear this person who says that she knows you well,
says very nice things about you tho, she likes you!
Em:she can say all the nice things she wants but you know what?the truth is they did not know me like that, you know who's
close to me:My aunt Betty, my uncle Jack their three boys, my daughter,that's who's close to me: friends and D-12. thats whos
close to me, they could come out and write a book about me and I couldnt say nothing.
Mojo: what does eminem want everybody in the world to know about you? With this movie 8mile about to come out its gonna
be huge, everybodys trying to come out and write tell all books
Em: I mean everybodys got their oppions man when these books come out there gonna do what they gonna do their gonna sell
about a thousand copys or whatever these people are gonna end up back in their trailer trash homes anyways. They think their
gonna get a little money its gonna end up back firing in their face. People that know me know Im the realest person. Birthday
or not Im calling to set the record straight I dont never think Im too good, Im on a certain level Im too high to not talk
to somebody "Oh eminem is soo"..you know you got these little tabloids that come out on me people double the money
I spent on my house. I live in a very humble home for what I could be living in. And I live a very normal lifestyle, as normal
as I can for the status i've gotten to.
Mojo:and I'm sure you thank God everyday for what you got!
Em: I thank god everyday that god gave me the talent and the strength to get through everything that Ive been through.
And the radio keeps playing my records and I keep having succes and people like my music, thats what it should be about. All
this personal shit.sorry, this personal stuff, I tell it in my music and I havent lied ONCE in my music. I will tell the public
what I want the public to know. But as far as how many times I wipe my ass when I gotta take a dump....
Mojo: thats no bodys business
Em: thats a little bit too much information, but people always try to weasel their way in, its so funny man. You know
I come from the east side of Detroit; these are the place that I grew up in as a normal Kat,as a normal person so You gotta
understand how it is for me to reach this level of fame,this level of stardom and when you think these people are your friends
up in your face telling you they care for you and they would never do anything to hurt you and they do you dont know what
it makes you go through mentally
Mojo: the one thing that made Jenny cry...
(Eminem: fake tears!)
...was when she said her children missed your daughter so much.
Em: her children can see my daughter, the problem is her coming and her husband. I always told her I will not mess up
your marriage and now I dont want drama from her husband.
Mojo: they have a body guard cause they think your gonna come after them. They brought a body guard in with them.
Em: oh come on its not even that deep! Nah Im just backing Kim up.Im sitting her listening to the radio and Im like yeah
thats the first time Kim ever really said anything in my defense or hers.
Mojo: will you back kim up also, this girl was alleging that Kim was addicted to cocaine?
Em: that Im not gonna speak on, people have had their problems I have had mine in the past, my road to success wasnt perfect
and Kims not perfect. Ima tell you right now that girl who was sitting in your studio is the exact same thing that she says
Mojo: we got eminem on, lets talk happy thoughts. You got the big movie coming out are you exited?
Mojo:what,you got another call?
Mojo:(laughs)So you got the big movie coming out..are you excited?I know I'm excited I saw the previous and it looks great!!
Em: yeah I actually am exited, the movie in the beginning stage I was a little nervous but as we were doing the movie
I didnt look at any of the play backs so I didnt know how it was gonna come out. I just did the scenes and thought if it felt
real, it would work.
Mojo: they should your movie at the Toronto film festival you got a standing ovation everyone thats seen it are talking
about an Oscar, is that freaking you out?
Em: that was a little weird because I just wanted to make a movie about how I came up not exactly about my life, but there's
so many kids trying to come out that way, battling.You go back to Saint Andrew's or what used to be Hip -Hop shop for us,you
still see battling and kids doing anything, making a demo, and stuff. anybody who is tryin to make it in music I wanted to
be able to relate to this movie and I think that's what it captures.
Mojo: we just had kim on with us and she didnt like the choice of Brittany playing her. I thought maybe she thought Brittany
was very beautiful. You heard what she said
Em: (laughs) Brittany's cute but you know I dont have not really good things or bad things to say.
Mojo: when you were picking someone to pick your mom I would want somebody as Kim Basigner playing my mom.
Em: yeah that was a little weird, I didnt pick her tho, curtis did most of the casting.
Mojo: what was your reaction when you heard she was gonna be your mom?
Mojo: (laughs) This morning we also had in Chloe the little 7 year old who is going to play your sister in the movie
Em: yo shes the cutest little girl in the world, besides Hailie
Mojo: plays your sister in the movie, and she told us about the time you actually invited her to your house to play with
Hailie so you could get to know her a little better.[em:yea] A lot of people cant separate you guys and your rapping role
along with the personal side of you...so, how do you rate yourself as a father?
Em: how do I rate myself as a father?my aunt betty heard so she screamed "10".....umm I do the best I can on
a scale of 1-10 like a 20
Mojo: (laughing) always humble, before we lose you here I know you gotta go its your birthday, celebrating 30 years .can
you do a eminem mojo in the morning line here for us?
Em: oh come on Im just waking up man I got sleep in my eyes,man! Im not good at that this early
