It seems that Eminem was not easily influenced by his friends. He did not need to ‘follow the crowd’ to fit in. Eminem said he was never into drugs like everyone else around him. His social influences did not have an effect on him which shows that he was a very strong character and did not allow his peers to nurture his behaviour.
Eminem’s genetics once again proved to be a benefit in his life since he was recognised as one the 10 most popular rapper , which brought him a lot of attention as well as criticism from the media. The genetic qualities that he was born with, inherited from his parents seemed to be an attraction to the public and Eminem wanted other people to define the person that he was by listening to his music. Eminem inherited from his father an important character trait that is determination, which helped Eminem seek a goal and not give up, so that has achieved success in the music which he always dreamed of. Eminem’s mother was a writer of books, so I guess she had a great imagination, vocabulary and charisma that Eminem could inherit from her, so it was much easier to write such lyrics to his songs, because he could use his great imagination and a good vocabulary which marked his technique and style of being. Eminem charisma helped make easy contact with people, so I may say that it is because Eminem has a strong personality and 'infecting' the energy at his concerts, and radiated a positive force, so that more and more people saw the potential in him.
Eminem had a few ‘bumpy years’ in his relationship with Kim (his wife). Finding it hard to cope with these rough times, the fact that in his early years of childhood the split between his parents could have affected him emotionally therefore resulting in how he dealt with difficult situation with his wife, so therefore they decided to divorce. The split between his parents could have influenced him to follow in their footsteps meaning that nurture camouflaged the way he thought about relationships. Eminem is a very honest person which he could inherit this character trait from his parents and he always said what he thought, and also his lyrics was based on his sincerity, so people who were listening to him always knew that his songs are all real, and this made him special comparing to other’s rappers or singers.
It seems that nurture did not really have as much effect on Eminem as his nature did the fact that his environment kept changing while he was young. This meant that nurture did not really imprint on his characteristics. Nature proved to be a benefit to Eminem. His genetics stood out a lot as he was recognized by the public for it. In conclusion it appears that Eminem’s characteristics were more biological and genetically influenced than social, economic and environmental influences.

Has your chosen celebrity succeeded because of their up bring or their genes?
Eminem is one the most successful rapper in US, this could be because of his upbringing from when he was young. From a very young age he started getting involved with performing music and writing his own lyrics. He left his education when he was 17, as he said “he knows enough and he know what he wants do to in future”. This may be one of the reasons for why he is very successful today because he concentrated on a very important thing which was music and he done it as good as he could. Many people may say Eminem’s talent runs through her genies, but some may say because of her upbringing. Reasons for why people may say this will be because of her upbringing are because Eminem’s mom was encouraging him to do well in music and she was taking him to the shows, concerts, etc. On the other hand some may say Eminem is very successful today because of her genies reasons for this is because from a young age Eminem always loved hip hop music and he was singing the music in the front class room, so this was natural to him, to show off his talent, and he knew he is doing it right. The other thing that made him very unique was that his lyrics was made by him and by them he had describing his feeling, goals and character. This could why Eminem is successful today because of his upbringing this is because throughout his life he always had support from his mother which always gave him hope to chase for his dreams, and it could be really different to him if his mom wouldn’t encourage him from the beginning of his life to do what he is the best in.
