Eminem has become a true superstar, after the record-breaking sales of his chart-topping 2002 album The Eminem Show. Also the star of the film 8-Mile, he has received much critical acclaim for the semi-autobiographical role he plays in his debut movie. QUOTES FROM THE BOOK INCLUDE: I feel like this probably is my best album so far. This one is personal. I feel like I ve grown and in order to survive in this game I ve had to grow. Everything that happens in my life I m able to take it and write about it and reflect it. Sometimes I wonder if I need drama in my life in order to make songs and keep writing. EMINEM ON HIS NEW ALBUM THE EMINEM SHOW I thought I was gonna go away and people was gonna forget. Some artists that go to jail, people forget about them. Their name ain t out there. I thought everything that I worked for could crumble, any day, you know? So that was nerve racking. I m glad to not have it hanging over my head anymore. I wash my hands of it.
