Hailie Jade Mathers struggled to understand her father’s popularity when she was a child but now she found it ‘so fun’ to look back at her memories from childhood.
AceShowbiz –Hailie Jade Mathers had a hard time understanding her father’s fame. The daughter of rap star Eminem – whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III – and his ex-wife Kim Scott, the 27-year-old singer explained that her experience was “very different” to that of her father’s brother Nate, 35, because she was only a tot when he shot to fame in the late 1990s even though it is “fun” to look back now.
“See, that is probably why our experience was a lot different because I remember some things from before, but I didn’t totally understand what was going on and you were definitely old enough to understand what was going on,” she said to her uncle – who she refers to as a “brother-uncle” because they are relatively close in age – on her “Just a Little Shady” podcast.
“Nate is my uncle — my dad’s younger brother — but also we kind of grew up together, because Nate lived with us for a while when I was young. I would say [you are a] brother-uncle, you definitely act younger than your age. We are closer in age than you are to [my] dad, but still I never realised how much older you are than me because I feel like you are like a brother.”
“It’s so fun to look back [now], thinking back as an adult, I’m like, ‘Wow, that’s so, so surreal.’ those memories of me thinking those were normal things, now I look back like, ‘Holy crap, that was cool!’ “
Music producer and actor Nate added that he began to “understand” the sudden fame of his elder brother – who also has Stevie Laine, 20, and adopted his niece Alaina, 29, in the early 2000s as his late sister-in-law Dawn Scott struggled with drug abuse – when he began to see him on TV.
He said, “I started understanding a little more when reality would hit when I would start seeing [Eminem] on TV and going to shows and all the signatures and crazy people. I am like, ‘Alright, well this is real!’ “
