Eminem says he’s a family man who believes in checking his profanity at the door.

The Michigan rapper known for his gritty lyrics tells CBS TV’s “60 Minutes” he’s a different person at home with his daughters. Eminem is raising biological daughter Hailie, adopted daughter Alaina and his ex-wife’s daughter Whitney.

Eminem says in an interview for broadcast Sunday evening that he doesn’t use profanity around the house and questions what kind of a parent cusses in front of children.

But Eminem says it isn’t his job to shield young fans from the language in his lyrics. He says it’s up to their parents to act like parents.

The singer whose legal name is Marshall Mathers has won nine Grammys and an Oscar.
