Eminem Gay Marriage Declaration: “I Approve!”

Eminem has changed his tune. Historically one of the world’s best known homophobes, Em, 37, now says he supports gay marriage.

“I think if two people love each other, then what the hell? I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want,” the Slim Shady star confesses in a chat with The New York Times. “It’s the new tolerant me!”

Eminem is close friends with openly-gay rock icon Elton John and credits the musician with helping him overcome an addiction to painkillers.

Eminem’s Recovery debuts everywhere music is sold on June 22.
