Online arguments counter-productive: Eminem

New York: Rapper Eminem believes it is pointless to get into an argument on any social networking website.

The 41-year-old rapper says he has realised that reading people`s comments online can often turn out to be a waste of time and be "counter-productive" as they spark arguments, reports

"I really try not to pay attention to social media platforms," he said on SiriusXM radio.

"Put it this way, I want to keep my finger on the pulse of what`s going on, so I don`t want to be ignorant in that sense. But at the same time, I can`t pay attention to what everyone is saying. I would never be able to make music, I don`t think, if I got caught up in that," he added.

Nevertheless, he reads online posts.

"Because I would probably get caught up in some ugly arguments with people...It would consume a lot of my time and it would be very counter-productive for me to do that. But I still do, and that`s what`s f***ed up," he added.
