Eminem: Is the surly rapper secretly a big ol' softie?

Eminemnice2009_lEminem has always been kind of an intimidating fellow, but I think he might actually be a decent dude. The proof? The rapper is flying out 200 laid-off Detroit auto workers to watch his Jimmy Kimmel Live! performance on Friday, in an attempt to draw attention to the economic woes facing Detroit. As someone who grew up in Michigan, I think it’s pretty phenomenal for Eminem to do this. Detroit has been suffering for a long, long time – long before this latest economic decline. Eminem often gets a bad rap – haha, rap – but this is an incredibly generous thing to do and, personally, it makes me want to buy his new album, Relapse, so much more.

What do you think PopWatchers? Is Eminem actually a really good guy?
