DRUGS WERE A BAD CHOICE: Eminem Looks Haggard And Gaunt At Awards Show

It looks like hard-living has eroded Eminem’s candy-coated shell. Watch and learn kiddies.

As the rapper spoke at the Wall Street Journal’s Innovator Of The Year awards in New York on Wednesday, he looked haggard and gaunt.

Eminem’s drug abuse started during the filming of his movie 8 Mile, when he was on set 16 hours a day and could not sleep.
