    Default Eminem are you the greatest?!

    So since I was like 11 I have loved Eminem. I had my whole walls plastered with pics of him till my father got the poops and pulled them all down. Same with all my pics on my folders, books, cds; everything was thrown out. Now I'm 24 and my sister are going to see him in December. So what are your thoughts? What would you let your child listen to? I have friend that their kids know all the lyrics to Usher! Whats the difference? I love Eminem! Why would any child be forced to listen to what they don't what to listen to? This isn't for a debate, but the question is.



    Would you let your 13 year old listen to something provocative? Knowing that it is just a song and it is not real.


    AGAIN -I DO NOT WANT "I CANT BELIEVE BLAH BLAH..." BE NICE


    Thank you.

    no I would not let my child listen to eminem.

    Mainly because he promotes violence and anger.
    He is so very very angry.
    I love some of his songs..but don't play them around the kids.

    The one he did with Rihanna makes me ill..and i see young girls put up the lyrics and wish for a guy like that...sheesh.

    Yes I would, I loved eminem when I was 14/15 and by that stage had enough values and morals and was adult enough to realise what he rapped about (for the most part) was glorified and not real. I am the most non violent, hippyish white girl haha, but I think he has a lot of talent and is a great artist. I dont for a second think that the type of music you listen to will be able to 'extremely' change your personality. It can definitely affect your emotions but it can't make you do something you don't want to do.

    Nope, I agree with ARB.

    We are very strict with what DD (only 2 though) sees and hears. I don't even like the tv being on anything other then ABC 4 kids in fears of what she will hear/see.

    Though when I was 13 I was listening to metal/Goth/punk type music that has some pretty MA+, R lyrics. So ask me when I have a 13 year old

    I wouldn't let my kids listen to him for the same reasons as ARBMum. I often wonder what his daughter thinks of all of the venom that he spewed into his songs about her mother.

    No I wouldn't let my child. I don't think what he has to say is relevant to 13 year old.

    Yep I would .. I love eminem

    My kids have no choice ATM they listen to eminem and all other songs that swear, promote drugs, alcohol etc. I plan to educate my children that it's just music, doesn't mean it's real or true. I listened to eminem and whatever else I wanted to growing up and I'm fine
