Marshall Bruce Mathers III, better known by his stage name Eminem, says he like everybody, gays included.

Speaking with Anderson Cooper in an interview which aired Sunday on CBS' 60 Minutes, the rapper rejects critics who have labeled him anti-gay.

Referring to the song Kill You, which includes the line “Whether you're a fag or lez. Hate fags? The answer is yes,” Cooper asks: “Do you not like gay people?”

“I don't have any problems with nobody, you know what I mean?” Slim Shady answers. “Like, I'm just whatever.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Earlier in the interview, Eminem defended his lyrics by saying that “I didn't just invent saying offensive things.”

In a June interview with the New York Times, the 37-year-old hip-hopper said he believes gay marriage should be legal.

“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,” he says.

But his latest album, Recovery, is not free from controversy. In the song Elevator, he refers to three openly gay entertainers – Lance Bass, Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken – with this line: “Sorry, Lance, Mr. Lambert and Aiken ain't gonna make it. They get so upset when I call then both fake it's.”

“Fake it's” in the song sounds more like fagots, but Eminem has remained mum on what he meant.
