The teen has recently come forward to admit that she was ‘terrified’ of Eminem while she was growing up. Her confession sure makes a lot of people feel like a million years old while making them feel sorry for her.

When asked by Noisey to choose her favorite rapper with the option ranging from Eminem, Childish Gambino and Drake, she revealed that the Not Afraid star freaked her out.

She said,

"I have to say Childish Gambino, one billion percent."

The singer went on to add,

"I was scared of Eminem my whole life. Terrified That dude freaked the f*** out of me. Oh my god. ‘But you know, Childish Gambino created me dude. I don’t even know, that’s crazy, that’s a god you can’t even put him in a list of other people."

The first Eminem’s album that helped him pave his way to the pinnacle of stardom, The 'Slim Shady LP', featuring 'My Name Is' made its way to the music market in 1999, and the next one, 'The Marshall Mathers LP' was released the following year which both was released even before Ellish was born in December 2001.

"I thought all the music was written for the movie. I thought all the characters were cast for those characters."

She added,

"I didn’t figure it out until two years ago. I watched that movie like 40 times. I remember seeing Spice Girls and thinking, oh my god they’re re-enacting the movie."

Yet given that she wasn’t even born while Spice World was at their pinnacle of success and her birth year already marked the first anniversary of the group's split.
