    Eminem may curse in front of an audience, but the rapper said his daughters won't hear him say a foul vowel at home.

    "Profanity around my house? No," the Grammy-award winning artist told correspondent Anderson Cooper on "60 Minutes," Reuters reported.

    "I'm not saying there's not a glimpse of me in the music, there's not truth in...things that I say, but this is my music, this is my art."

    In an interview to air Sunday, October 10 on CBS, the notriously foul-mouthed lyricist defines a line between his rap career and life as a father.

    Fifteen-year-old daughter Hailey and adopted daughters Lainey and Whitney have been referenced in the rapper's songs, but don't expect the Eminem, a pen name for 37-year-old Marshall Mathers, to break into "The Real Slim Shady" at the dinner table.

    "I'm a parent, I have daughters. I mean, how would I really sound, as a person, walking around my house 'B---, pick this up.' You know what I mean? I don't cuss,"

    In his most recent hit with popstar Rhianna, Eminem tones down the obscenity of past songs that drop curses like beats and detail explicit scenes involving rape and domestic violence.  The "Love the Way Lie" duet only spits out the f-bomb twice.

    On "60 Minutes," Reuters reports that Eminem also discusses his childhood, career, being a white rapper in a predominantly black industry and battling his drug addiction.
