Rapper Eminem has rubbished constant rumors he is about to retire, claiming comments he made last year were misinterpreted.
The Oscar and Grammy Award-winner announced he was taking time out of his career after he was forced to pull out of his world tour to undergo treatment for sleeping pill dependency.
But he insists he is planning to concentrate on recording and producing again after announcing the end of his short-lived second marriage to Kimberley Ann Scott earlier this week.
He says, “People get it twisted when I said I’m taking a break. I never said I’m going to stop doing music. What I meant was that I’m taking a break from being the frontman and the centre of attention.”
“I want to fall back for a minute, but I never stop recording. I keep busy.”
