Part of Anthony Bozza’s interview with Eminem has been posted on the magazine’s website. Talking about all the drama Eminem was involved with last year and how it played into his writing of the album, Slim said, “‘Sing for the Moment’ was the first song I wrote for the album; ‘Cleanin Out My Closet’ was the second. I had the line in ‘Cleanin Out My Closet’ — ‘I’d like to welcome y’all out to The Eminem Show’ — and it was just a line, but I sat back and I was like, ‘My life is really like a fu**ing show.’ I have songs on the album that I wrote when I was in that sh** last year, with a possible jail sentence hangin’ over my head and all the emotions going through the divorce. I went through a lot of sh** last year that I resolved at the same time, all in the same year. And, yeah, that’s when half of the album was wrote.”
