Would Eminem want his fans to date his daughter?

It’s a funny thing. I came across some pictures of Eminem’s 19-year-old daughter Hailie Jade Scott Mathers on 2OceansVibe today.

She’s gorgeous: a fresh-faced, all-American beauty. The girl who spawned a thousand lines in her dad’s verses is now a graduate, and assumingly, will have men clamouring for her attention.

I wonder if it bothers Eminem that those same men probably grew up listening to his music.

Music where he says stuff like “bitch I’ma kill you! You don’t wanna fuck with me / Girls neither – you ain’t nothing but a slut to me” and “put anthrax on a Tampax and slap you till you can’t stand”.

Not that I buy into the idea that listening to violent lyrics turns you into a violent person, but it doesn’t exactly foster a culture of respect for women, now does it?

And it’s not like this type of stuff is in his past, in one of his recent tracks he bashes Lana del Rey, seemingly out of the blue, singing: “Play nice? Bitch, I’ll punch Lana del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice.”

It’s all fun and games when you imagine someone punching Hailie in the face twice like Ray Rice, right Em?
