Shock rapper Eminem has pledged to enjoy the rest of his life without the mind altering powers of illegal drugs.

The 32-year-old has documented his past use of ecstasy, LSD and magic mushrooms in many of his songs, but he insists he has since cleaned up his act.

The JUST LOSE IT star says, "I definitely feel more wide-eyed and more aware of my surroundings and what's going on. I went through my little phase, and I just realised it wasn't the thing for me.

"In fact, it wasn't the thing for me before fame and there's no reason for it to be the thing for me now. That's especially since I've reached a certain level of maturity that hopefully includes a happy medium of immaturity."
