DETROIT – Eminem says he’s a family man who believes in checking his profanity at the door.

The Michigan rapper known for his gritty lyrics told CBS TV’s “60 Minutes” he’s a different person at home with his daughters. Eminem is raising biological daughter Hailie, adopted daughter Alaina and his ex-wife’s daughter Whitney.

Eminem said in an interview for broadcast Sunday evening that he doesn’t use profanity around the house and questions what kind of a parent cusses in front of children.

But Eminem said it isn’t his job to shield young fans from the language in his lyrics. He said it’s up to their parents to act like parents.

The singer, whose legal name is Marshall Mathers, has won nine Grammys and an Oscar.

Caine aided father’s death

 

LONDON – Actor Michael Caine has claimed he hastened his terminally ill father’s death by asking a doctor to give a fatal overdose.

In a transcript of a radio interview widely published in British media before being broadcast Saturday, Caine said he could not bear to see his father in pain.

Caine, 77, told Classic FM the doctor initially refused but told the actor to return to the hospital at midnight.

“I came back at midnight and my father died at five past 12. So he’d done it,” Caine said.

Caine’s father, Maurice Micklewhite, died at the age of 56 in 1955 after suffering from liver cancer.

Caine’s publicist did not immediately return an e-mail seeking comment.
