Eminem Says His Blond Hair Was A Result Of An Ecstasy Bender

Book: The Way I Am

Year: 2009

What happened? Shortly after signing with Dr. Dre and before the release of The Slim Shady LP, Eminem did a hit of ecstasy with Royce da 5’9" and woke up the next morning with blond hair. When Dre saw it, he told Em to keep it because it was the perfect addition to his image.

Complex says: Although he’s retired the look in recent times, could you imagine Em never having the blond hair? Clearly, the doctor knew best!
