Eminem is the latest musician to donate food to healthcare workers, delivering over 400 meals labelled ‘Mom’s Spaghetti’ to two hospitals in his hometown of Detroit.
“Mom’s spaghetti”, of course, is what he vomits all over himself in the lyrics of ‘Lose Yourself’. There’s no indication that these meals have been pre-digested at all though.
News of the donation came after the Henry Ford Hospital tweeted pictures of the pots of spaghetti bolognese. As well as the ‘Mom’s Spaghetti’ label, there is another reading, “Thank you frontline caregivers” stamped with the logo of the rapper’s Shady Records label. Meals were also sent to the Detroit Receiving Hospital.
“Our #HealthcareHeroes ‘lost themselves’ in the delicious Mom’s Spaghetti donated by Detroit’s very own, Eminem”, tweeted the Henry Ford. “Thank you for providing a special meal for our team members!”
Eminem himself has not commented, but his manager Paul Rosenberg has confirmed that the meals came from the rapper, and that more will be delivered in the coming weeks.
It’s not the first time Eminem has sold his knowing brand of spaghetti, having previously opened a pop-up shop in Detroit in 2017 and a food stand at Coachella a few months later, when he headlined the festival.
