Marshall Mathers will once again grace the cover of Rolling Stone (the sixth time by my account) when the latest issue hits stores this Friday. The interview will cover the usual Eminem monotony of prescription drug abuse, women issues, rejuvenating his career and his father abandoning him at a young age. The most interesting part that I have discovered is that Em discusses his affection for the Nintendo classic, Donkey Kong, as he reveals his quest to gain an all-time high score.
Here’s a very brief excerpt of what you can expect:
Do you think it’s hard for you to trust women?
I have trust issues. With women, friends, whatever. You always wonder what their real motives are. I’ve got a small circle of friends, and it’s a lot of the same friends I’ve known forever. Right now, that works for me. I came out of some difficult things these past couple of years. I kind of feel like I’m just now finding my footing. So I want to make sure that’s secure before I go out and do anything else. I need to keep working on myself for a while.
What about your love life? Do you date?
Not really. As far as going out, like dinner and a movie-I just can’t. Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I’d like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn’t? It’s just hard to meet new people, in my position.
