Eminem Almost Died from Drug Addiction

Eminem's incessant references to drugs in his comeback campaign may seem like a publicity exploit, but it's more realistic than assumed. First there's his album title, Relapse -- to suffer a deterioration after a period of improvement. Then there's the artwork made out of a montage of -- yes, you guessed it -- pills. Finally, Eminem launched a website called Pompsomphills.com as part of a viral media strategy.

Em also to came clean on his drug addiction in a recent interview with Vibe. 
Says Slim Shady: 
"My doctor told me the amount of methadone I'd taken was equivalent to shooting up four bags of heroin. Even when they told me I almost died, it didn't click. For a long time he did not admit that he had an addiction. “I did not understand that it ran in our family. Now that I have had an addiction, I have a lot of sympathy for my mother.” 
Expect Eminem to address the issue further on his eagerly awaited 5th solo album, Relapse, due May 19. As long as he doesn't hit us over the head with "Vicodin this, methadone that," we should be fine.
