Zara Larsson on How Eminem's Music Helped Her Recover From a Bad Breakup
Ten years have flown by since the emergence of Swedish pop icon Zara Larsson, who stormed onto the music stage with her debut album "1" while still in her teens.
Now, a decade later, Larsson has blossomed into a mature artist, celebrating her growth and transformation with the launch of her fourth solo studio album, "Venus," through her own label, Sommer House Records.
In a recent interview with Mike Adam on Audacy Check In, Larsson delved into the pivotal role Eminem's music played in her life during difficult times, particularly in helping her navigate through a breakup. Reflecting on her teenage years, Larsson expressed how Eminem's music became her refuge during moments of despair and anger.
Larsson shared candidly:
When I was feeling down, it was like my Eminem phase. His music was a significant part of my life during that period. I was grappling with teenage hormones and stuck in a toxic relationship. Eminem's raw and intense lyrics resonated with me deeply. One of the tracks that I found solace in during my breakup with my first boyfriend was 'Puke.' It may sound intense, but it was a cathartic experience for me.
