eminem_mm In what has to be one of the most unlikely endorsements semi-psychotic rapper Eminem has ever received, a prominent Hindu statesman, Rajan Zed, applauded him for agreeing to fly out 200 laid-off Detroit autoworkers to Los Angeles for tonight’s taping of the Jimmy Kimmell show, the first of three scheduled appearances where he’ll be performing new songs from his forthcoming Relapse album. Zed was so impressed by the emcee’s good faith gesture that he even quoted ancient scripture on his behalf: “Give with faith. Give with love. Give with joy,” and adds, “Wisdom means a life of selfless service.” He also suggested that celebs like “George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey” and other A-listers could learn a lot from Eminem’s generosity during these trying economic times.
