Anderson Cooper interviewed Eminem on '60 Minutes' Sunday night, and the rapper talked about his rough upbringing, how he writes his rhymes and his near-fatal overdose.

Anderson also asked Eminem about being accused of being a misogynist and homophobe, and Eminem said he's been branded with these labels because he is white.

"I felt like I was being attacked," he replied. "I was being singled out. I felt like, 'Is it because of the color of my skin? Is it because of that that you're paying more attention?' There are certain rappers that do and say the same things that I'm saying and I don't hear no one say anything about that."

Eminem went on to say that while he throws around the word 'fa**ot,' he has no problem with anyone and each parent needs to be responsible for their own kids.

50 Cent recently made comments that were construed by some as anti-gay, and he did not get a free pass because he is black.
