Eminem speaks out in favor of marriage equality

Rapper Eminem, famed for his homophobic lyrics, appears to have had a change of heart and has declared his support of gay marriage — cynically anyway — saying “everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable.”

In an interview with The New York Times Magazine that will be published this weekend, the rapper said his “overall look on things is a lot more mature than it used to be.”

Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, said: “I think if two people love each other, then what the hell? I think everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable.”
