    Huge congratulations out to Hailie. She grew up fast. I’ve followed Eminem throughout his career. In fact, he is the only artist that I buy his albums — with real money. I just download everything else for free. But not Eminem. I actually want to support him. Seeing his relationship with his daughter is very moving, because I never had a father.

    I was raised in a destructive mind control cult, and my father was murdered when I was 2 or 3. Or, at least I spent the first 30 years of my life thinking he was dead. However, there is a small chance my father is still alive. This dude, not the same guy I thought was my dad, just popped up one day claiming to be my father. It’s complicated.

    Essentially, my mom met who was supposed to be my father while she was married to this other guy. We’ll just call him TJ. I never knew anything about him.

    As far as I knew, John was my biological father. I grew up thinking he was killed by the mafia or drug lords or something. Normal stuff. But as reality tends to unfold. There was another side I never saw. Mom left TJ when she met John. A month or two later mom discovered she was pregnant. Very short window.

    John allegedly had a paternity test and determined I was his son. Nevertheless, I found out it was John’s mom who demanded blood test. It’s possible he lied. So, I have no idea which dude is my father. Isn’t that f***ed up?

    And to make matters worse, I’m pretty sure TJ wants me dead. Again, long story. Point being, I don’t have many heroes on this planet. To be honest, I pretty much hate everybody. So, for me to compliment another human is very significant. You probably think I suffer from a mental illness. I wish it was that simple. It’s more like a mental illness protocol suite than any single cognitive discrepancy. Of course, these precarious facets of my inner instability also accrue great pride in eccentrism.

    By the way, what the hell was I even talking about? Oh right, props to Hailie Jade Scott Mathers and her father. Okay. Guess I’ll go play Skyrim or something.
