Well, one of rap’s reformed bad boys wants to reach out to the Biebs to help him get himself right. None other than the real Slim Shady or Marshall Mathers III, since we’re being all adult-like. The Sun reports that Eminem asked Justin to spend some time with him over the holidays so he can “talk him into going to therapy and counseling to deal with the stress of fame in a positive way.”
The 41-year old “Monster” lyricist knows a thing or two about the effects of fame, wealth and the pressures of expectation in the music industry. Eminem is “really hoping he can sort Justin out … he’s worried he’s going to end up in really bad trouble,” the newspaper’s source revealed. “Eminem would consider going into the studio with him if he sorts himself out.” While other celebrities like Will Smith and Oprah have attempted to get through to the oft troubled pop star, perhaps Eminem’s experience and legacy will finally strike a chord with the Believe star.
Believe, a behind-the-scenes and on-stage look at Justin Bieber’s rise to international fame, opens in theaters Christmas Day.
