In a recent interview with VIBE magazine, the Grammy slash Oscar winning rapper (not to mention best selling artist of the year), Eminem said that he didn't subscribe to his "superstar" accolades. Eminem says he tries to avoid the limelight and stardom.
"I don't consider myself a star," Em said in an interview. "Obviously, I know I'm a celebrity but I don't look at myself in that light. I'm just me, man. It's one of the reasons that I stay here [in Detroit]. I don't want the attention. I don't like the attention. I don't like all that sh*t. Yes, I love the respect and the admiration that some people show me but I don't thrive off that whole thing. I just want to be regular."
