GOOD LUCK EM!


EMINEM IN DRUG REHAB!


Troubled rapper Eminem checked into a Michigan rehab center for drug treatment on Aug. 16.

Eminem entered Brighton Hospital, about 30 miles west of Detroit, the same day his record company announced he was canceling the European leg of his current Anger Management Tour, citing "exhaustion, complicated by other medical issues."

"Eminem is in the hospital under doctors' care. He is being treated for dependency on sleep medication," his label, Interscope Records, said Aug. 18 in a statement to Star. While the statement did not name the drug, reports identified it as Ambien, a widely-used prescription sleep aid.

The 32-year-old rapper (real name: Marshall B. Mathers III) checked into the hospital, about 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 16, sources tell Star. He came in with two burly bodyguards, who never left his side.

"He looked really rough. He was all drugged-out, weak and tired out," the source says. "He looked like hell."

Family insiders tell Star the pressure of his tour, legal actions against him — including a suit filed a week earlier by an aunt and uncle over his alleged attempt to evict them from a home he bought for them — and his renewed relationship with ex-wife Kim Mathers contributed to his current troubles.

The rapper had been scheduled to perform 10 shows in Europe beginning Sept. 1 in Hamburg, Germany, and ending Sept. 17 in Dublin, Ireland.

Eminem has long been linked to drug culture. He sports a tattoo touting the sometimes-abused prescription painkiller Vicodin on his left arm. He has also appeared to take drugs such as Ecstasy on stage and encouraged his audience to do the same, although he has said the drugs were actually dried-up pieces of chewing gum. Author Anthony Bozza, in a 2003 biography, told of observing Eminem on Ecstasy.

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY By thefayth, BiNet USA President With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community. When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people. It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gen

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag (but people I knew said I did, so did "the news") By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always. My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other! My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only t
