London: Eminem has offered his full support for same-sex marriage in his home state of Michigan.

The ‘Slim Shady’ star has previously come under fire from gay rights groups over his contentious songs.

He was targeted by gay-rights campaigners last year when he called homosexual singers Lance Bass, Adam Lambert and Clay Aiken ‘f**gots’ in his track ‘Elevator.’

However, the star reveals that he is a lot more mature than in previous years.

"I think if two people love each other, then what the hell? I think that everyone should have the chance to be equally miserable, if they want,” the Daily Star quoted Eminem as telling the New York Times.

"It`s the new tolerant me! My overall look on things is a lot more mature than it used to be," he added.
