Rapper opens up about drugs battle

Eminem has confirmed the release date of his long-awaited comeback album 'Relapse' - as well as announcing plans to release a follow-up later this year. 'Relapse' will be released on May 17. An as-yet unnamed single will precede the album, coming out on April 7.
Eminem has said that he felt "like Bugs Bunny" during his stint in rehab, he has revealed.

The rapper, whose comeback album 'Relapse' was released yesterday (May 18), has been talking openly about the prescription pill addiction that forced his hiatus from music.

And in an in interview with Zane Lowe due to be broadcast on BBC Radio1 tonight , he has spoken about how during his stint in rehab his fame made him feel like the iconic cartoon rabbit.

"When I got out I knew I needed to pull back from the spotlight because of the fame thing," he said. "I was like Bugs Bunny in rehab, Bugs Bunny walking in the room.

"The second you walk in the room… there were some people who were as supportive as they could be, some people that were like 'I don't look at you as Eminem, I'm seeing you as Marshall'."

Meanwhile, the rapper has revealed that he recently filmed a cameo in the new Judd Apatow movie 'Funny People'.

Of his appearance in the 'Knocked Up' director's next project, he told Vibe: "I just did a cameo a few months go with Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen in a Judd Apatow-produced film. It's called 'Funny People'. I kind of do a cameo in that which was fun by the way. And '8 Mile' (2002 movie in which the rapper starred) was not a fun movie to shoot."
