Eminem Sends “Mom’s Spaghetti” to Health Care Workers in Detroit
Not enough thanks in the world can show the appreciation to our health care workers during this time but a "thank you" like this is kind of a big deal.
Detroit-born Eminem showed his thanks to the health care workers at Henry Ford Hospital by donating spaghetti to feed them. But not just any spaghetti... MOM'S spaghetti! You don't have to even be an Eminem fan to understand the reference because it's almost become a part of pop culture through the years.
But just in case you're still confused... Eminem's hit song from 2002 (also the lead song from the movie 8 Mile), "Lose Yourself" started off with the following lyrics:
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
So obviously it meant to a lot to the workers to get treated by Eminem.
