One of the world's foremost poets has praised Eminem. I think this story is so great, I'm quoting the whole thing:
Seamus Heaney, 64, says Eminem has "sent a voltage around a generation".It's good to see genius getting the recognition it deserves. Also, see these funny picks of my man Marshall dressing up like Michael Jackson and dangling a baby out a hotel window in Glasgow.
Mr Heaney was speaking prior to the start of the Prince of Wales' Educational Summer School in Norwich, where he was a guest.
He was asked by journalists whether there was a figure in popular culture who aroused interest in poetry and lyrics in the way that Bob Dylan and John Lennon did during the 1960s and 70s.
Mr Heaney, former Professor of Poetry at Oxford University, said: "There is this guy Eminem. He has created a sense of what is possible.
"He has sent a voltage around a generation.
"He has done this not just through his subversive attitude but also his verbal energy."
