Eminem has never been known to hide his personal struggles, but last night he paid tribute to the people who helped him get through it: his fans. During a show at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom, he told the sell-out crowd that he "wouldn't have gotten out of that dark place without y'all" and dedicated the evening's performance to "anybody tonight who's been through personal struggles." The rapper has been open about his battle with addiction; he admitted that in addition to his alcoholism, he was taking up to 20 pills a day at one point, including Vicodin, Valium, Ambien and methadone. He's even sported AA-related bling in the past—wearing a sobriety necklace that featured the Sobriety Circle & Triangle Symbol used by AA to the 2011 Grammys.
