Eminem Compares Drug Habit To Michael Jackson's
The rapper claims he saw similarities between himself and Jacko...
The No Love rapper claims that after hearing about the King of Pop's addiction, which eventually led to his death of acute intoxication from medicine Propofol, he noticed similarities between Jacko's addiction to his own condition.
Em told Rolling Stone magazine: "I was taking so many pills that I wasn't even taking them to get high any more. I was taking them to get normal. In a day I could consume anywhere from 40 to 60 Valium. And Vicodin? Maybe 20, 30."
"My everyday regimen would be wake up and take an extra strength Vicodin - and it'd be Vicodin throughout the day. As the evening crept up I'd start with Valium. Every hour on the hour, I'd pop four or five more. The Ambien would put me over the top to go to sleep."
He continued: "Towards the end I don't think the s*** would put me to sleep more than two hours. It's very similar to what I've read about Michael. I read he kept getting up in the night asking for more. That's what I did."
The Love The Way You Lie hitmaker also added to the mag that he was two hours away from death after overdosing on methadone in 2007, claiming: "I'd done the equivalent of four bags of heroin. I knew I had to change my life. I was a terrible person."
