Eminem enters the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, rare appearance with his daughter Hailie
November 5 was a big day for Eminem, who was inducted into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Before going on stage, the rapper was able to count on the support of his daughter during rehearsals. Rare are the times that Hailie Jade (26) appears in public with her famous dad.
Each his black cap screwed on his head, each a bottle of water in hand: father and daughter made a brief appearance as a duo before the launch of the 37th introduction ceremony on Saturday evening. To the sound of his title “My Name Is”, Eminem made a noisy arrival on stage, before launching into a medley of his hits and more recent titles, with guests like Steven Tyler of the group Aerosmith or Ed Sheeran .
His mentor Dr. Dre, introducing the artist, said he asked him what he wanted him to say about him at the ceremony. Response from the rapper known for his rarely politically correct remarks: “First of all, I want you to tell everyone that I have a very big penis”. The Superstar- his album “The Marshall Mathers”, released in 2000, is one of the best-selling of all time – has built his career on his talent but also on lyrics that have sometimes caused controversy.
“My education was hip hop”
In a more serious tone, Eminemwho enters the Hall of Fame at just 50 years old, the minimum age required, also spoke of his difficult start in life, with a complicated childhood and addiction problems. “They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it took a whole genre of music and culture to lift me up,” he said. “I didn’t finish school, my education was hip hop, and those people were my teachers. (…) It is their evening as much as mine.
The Hall of Fame class of 2022 also welcomed pop and soul star Lionel Ritchie, also cataloged in a genre called soft rock, as well as country legend Dolly Parton and synthpop pioneers Eurythmics.
In addition to his daughter Hailie, born of his tumultuous relationship with Kimberley “Kim” Scott, Eminem has two adopted children : Whitney (20), another daughter of Kim born from another relationship and Alaina (29 years old)whose mother is none other than Kim’s sister.
