    Here's What Eminem’s Daughter Hailie Jade Had To Say About Constantly Getting Questions About Her Dad

    "I was young, and I didn't totally understand the situation, so I was like, that's my dad. I don't ask you about your dad."

    In a recent episode of her new podcast, Just a Little Shady, the now 26-year-old opened up to questions from fans.

    During the AMA session, she ended up getting a lot of inquiries about her famous dad and decided to open up about growing up in his shadow.

    "Does it bother me when I get asked about my dad? The best way to say this is yes and no," Hailie explained during the episode.

    She continued, "Honestly, it's to a point. I obviously expect it. And there's certain things I can understand why people are just genuinely curious about, as anyone would be when you've kind of grown up half in the spotlight."

    Hailie admitted that it does get to a certain point where she wants people to know, "I'm a person, too."

    "So, it becomes tricky because I get it," Hailie added. "But then, after a certain extent, I'm not going to speak on behalf of anyone. I'm not going to answer stuff that I don't specifically have the answers to."

    She added that getting questions about her dad used to affect her more because she didn't really get it.

    "I feel like growing up, when it would happen, I would get more bothered by it because I was like, 'Why do people care?'" Hailie said.

    She continued, "I was young, and I didn't totally understand the situation, so I was like, that's my dad. I don't ask you about your dad."

    Nowadays, Hailie is more understanding of people's curiosity, but she says people still do cross a line sometimes.

    "There are certain things that, yeah, that's just weird that you want to know that," she said. "But then, things that have been a little bit shared, I understand why people are like, 'OK, is this true?'"

    "Some stuff it's just like, that's weird. Let's move on," Hailie concluded.
