Eminem: There's No Cursing in My House

The rapper says he's fine throwing out dirty words in his music but not in front of his daughters

Eminem is known for the dirty words he uses in his music. But the rapper insists when the microphones are off and he's at home with his kids, it's a totally different story.

"Profanity around my house? No," he told Anderson Cooper in a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday. "I'm not saying there’s not glimpses of me in the music, (that) there's not truth in ... things that I say. But this is music, this is my art..."

Em (real name: Marshall Mathers), 37, is a dad of three -- 14-year-old Hailie and adopted daughters Alaina, 17, and Whitney, 8 -- and he takes the job very seriously. "I'm a parent," he says. "I have daughters. I mean, how would I really sound, as a person...walking around my house (saying), 'B*tch, pick this up,' you know what I mean?...I don’t cuss."

But what about when kids listen to the rapper's music? Well, he says it's up to their parents to teach them right from wrong.

"I feel like it’s your job to parent them," Eminem said, when asked if he feels a sense of responsibility to his young listeners who may repeat some of his mature lyrics. "If you’re the parent, be a parent."

Do you believe that Eminem doesn't curse in his own home? Chime in below!
