Eminem’s drug bust

Eminem has spoken out about the death of his ‘8 Mile’ co-star Brittany Murphy saying that the reason celebs like her die from drugs is because the famous get prescription drugs too easily.

Talking candidly to Vibe magazine, Marshall Mathers said the doctors and their egos were to blame for the ease celebs can get their hands on drugs: ‘where you're famous, doctors will kiss your ass because they love the celebrity, 'oh, I can call up Eminem and get him on the phone right now. Oh, hi Marshall, how are you doing? Do you need that prescription?' There are doctors that will give you certain things just because of who you are.’

He added: ‘it's crazy when you see things not just with her [Birttany Murphy] but just all these things that are happening in Hollywood with people in music, with people in acting. Famous people are overdosing at alarming rates… that almost sounded like a commercial. Wow.’

Eminem himself has battled against drugs and alcohol addiction in the past.
