Eminem’s daughter Hailie has revealed that she was absolutely terrified that she had snot on her face while her dad was giving his Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction speech.
The 26-year-old proudly went along to Los Angeles to support her famous dad, but admitted that she got a bit distracted worrying about something being on her face while the cameras rolled.
Speaking on her Just A Little Shady Podcast, Hailie revealed that they wanted to film the audience’s reaction as her dad spoke, which left her ‘panicking’ a little bit.
She went on: “The camera was, like, this close to my face and it was a lower angle, because the guy was kneeling, and I could think was ‘do I have a booger?’”
At this point, her co-host asked her if she did have anything grim on her face at the time, to which Hailie replied: “I hope not.”
Yeah, here’s hoping.
Hailie went on to say that she wasn’t sure when they’d put her up on the big screen and so was repeatedly reminding herself in her head: “Don’t make any sudden movements," to the point where she was ‘barely blinking’.
She finished the anecdote by saying she felt that she wasn’t ‘cut out for’ that type of situation - but to be fair, how many of us would enjoy having a camera shoved in our faces, eh?
Eminem was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last weekend. When accepting the accolade, he said: “I realise what an honour it is right now to be here up here tonight, and what a privilege it is to do the music that I love."
He then went on to explain how his rap career helped him battle his darkest demons.
“Music basically saved my life," he said. "I’ll keep this as painless as possible.
"I’m f**king stuttering and sh*t. I’m probably not supposed to actually be here tonight because of a couple of reasons.
"One, I know that I’m a rapper, and this is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
"There’s only a few of us who have been inducted already. Secondly, I almost died from an overdose in 2007, which kind of sucked.”
He then addressed his daughter, who hopefully wasn’t too consumed by the thought of snot to hear him say: “Hailie, plug your ears. Because drugs were f**king delicious. I thought we had a good thing going on, but I had to go and f**k it all up. Goddamn.”
