Eminem Celebrates A Decade Of Sobriety

Rap superstar Eminem is celebrating a decade of sobriety. The Lose Yourself MC, real name Marshall Mathers, took to Twitter to share his achievement with fans, after marking the milestone on Friday. Fans were quick to heap praise on the hip-hop hitmaker for the achievement.

Eminem, 45, has been open about his drug demons in recent years, after overcoming addictions to prescription pills like Vicodin, Valium, and Ambien.

During his first headlining set at California’s Coachella music festival last weekend, he dedicated his song “Not Afraid” to those battling similar struggles, as he gave thanks to his fans for standing by him during the tough times.

 

“I’m 10 years sober this week and I could not have done this s##t without y’all, so this song’s for you,” he told the audience, which burst into applause.

Eminem will have the opportunity to toast his sober milestone onstage tonight (April 22), when he repeats his set as he brings the second weekend of Coachella to a close.

He was joined by surprise guests 50 Cent and Dr. Dre during his first show on April 15.

The Weeknd and Beyonce served as the other headliners on the two weekends’ Friday and Saturday nights, respectively.

Celebrated my 10 years yesterday.
