Annie Reed, Middle School Student, Lands Eminem Interview For School Newspaper

When Michigan middle school student Annie Reed was assigned the task of writing an article for her school newspaper, she set an ambitious goal: she wanted to interview Grammy-award winning rapper Eminem.

Eminem is known for shying away from television and radio interviews, but after Reed's persistent requests, he granted her a 15-minute phone interview.

WXYZ News reports the pair spoke about what makes Detroit unique and the music the rapper listened to as a child.
