Eminem Helped Ed Sheeran To Get Rid Of Stutter

Ed Sheeran is huge Eminem fan and he has said that many times. His one of the favorite albums of all time is The Marshall Mathers LP (2000). In a new speech at the American Institute for Stuttering’s Freeing Voices Changing Lives Benefit Gala on Monday, Sheeran said that he had stutter and speech therapy or homeopathy didn’t work but Eminem’s MMLP became effective remedy: 

“I was a very, very weird child. I had a port-wine stain birthmark on my face that I got lasered off when I was very young; one day, they forgot to put the anesthetic on, and ever since then, I had a stutter… The thing I found most difficult was knowing what to say but not really being able to express it the right way. My Uncle Jim told my dad that Eminem was the next Bob Dylan — it’s pretty similar, it’s all just storytelling — so my dad bought me The Marshall Mathers LP when I was nine years old, not knowing what was on it. I learned every word of it, back to front, by the time I was ten. He raps very fast and melodically and percussively, and it helped me get rid of the stutter.” (Via The Hollywood Reporter)
