Eminem causes more controversy on European tour

Thursday, March 01, 2001
Eminem has been met by more controversy when he arrived in Italy for the San Remo festival.

This time he is said to be demanding too much from festival organisers and the media, reports dotmusic.

He has sent a contract to Italian TV station Rai Uno warning that if any TV presenters try to interview him on stage he will leave immediately.

A festival source said: "Madonna and Paul McCartney didn't make these type of demands. It will be hard to make sure people don't speak to him."

Earlier, priests in San Remo tried to ban Eminem from performing at the festival.

However, after negotiations it was agreed the show could go on, as long as Eminem cut out his swearing.
