Vibe caught up with Em for there latest cover story.  He touches on Brittany Murphy’s death and how doctors act highly un-ethical when you factor in famous patients.  I though it was an interesting point.  Just because you have a prescription pad doesn’t make you any less of a drug dealer I guess.

  • What were your thoughts when you heard that your 8 Mile co-star Brittany Murphy had passed?
    It was crazy. It’s crazy. It’s crazy because at one point we were very close and she was a really good person. It’s crazy when you see things not just with her but just all these things that are happening in Hollywood with people in music, with people in acting . . .

    . . . famous people.
    Famous people. Famous people are overdosing at alarming rates and-that almost sounded like a commercial. Wow.

    It sounded like a Sally Struthers commercial. “Please give to this charity.”
    Right. But they are. And it’s one of those things man where you’re famous, doctors will kiss your ass because they love the celebrity. “Oh, I can call up Eminem and get him on the phone right now. Oh, hi Marshall, how are you doing? Do you need that [prescription]?” There are doctors that will give you certain things just because of who you are.
