744

 

The 2015 American Music Awards have come and gone, but JLo’s amazing opening number will be remembered for years to come. Lopez, who served as host, kicked off the show by dancing to a medley of songs nominated for awards.

The 46-year-old had no problem keeping up with her back-up dancers, as she danced to everyone from The Weeknd to Rihanna.

Another memorable performance of the night included Celine Dion’s moving tribute to Paris, where she belted out the Edith Piaf song “Hymne à L’Amour.” Meghan Trainor shocked fans when she made out with fellow singer, Charlie Puth at the end of their rendition of “Let’s Get it On,” by Marvin Gaye.​ The show wrapped with Justin Bieber doing three songs, with the last song, “Sorry,” calling for him to be soaked with buckets of water.

Eminem Covers Billboard Magazine

Hot on the heels of the release of his new album, The Marshall Mathers LP2, Eminem covers Billboard magazine.

Though he’s been rapping and putting out albums for over a decade, Eminem is still not comfortable with fame. Check out some of his insight on fame, creating music and much more.

On not being comfortable with fame:

“I wanted the fame, but not the cover of Newsweek/Oh well, I guess beggars can’t be choosy,” he rhymes. “Wanted to receive attention for my music/Wanted to be left alone in public, excuse me.”

“I remember it felt like shit was just flying by me and nothing really seemed real.” He adds, “When I was making records, I would just take my frustrations out about that. I mean, fuck, here it is 2013 and I still don’t really have a total grasp on it yet and understand it.”

On fans liking his music:

“I kind of just make what I make and however people take to it is how they take to it, or don’t take to it,” he says. “I knew that it would have to match a certain intensity and vibe and feel in order to call it [The Marshall Mathers LP 2]. I want to say I’m confident that I’ve done that, but it’s up to the listener to decide.”

On bringing things back to old-school Hip-Hop with MMLP2:

“One of the things I thought might be cool to try to accomplish was to see if I could bring it back and remind people of the first time they ever heard me on a record. I wanted to try and recapture that nostalgic feeling.”

On his life now:

“Things are a little more calm for me now,” Eminem says. “There was a time when everything was kind of flying by the seat of my pants and I kind of didn’t know what was happening to my life. That certainly did get the best of me, with drugs and the pressure of all that shit. I’m at a different point now, but I still want to rap with the same energy and intensity and passion as before because, at the end of the day, this is what I love.”
