Rap star Eminem says the real Slim Shady is a loving dad — and not the man behind his violent lyrics and outrageous antics.

The Grammy Award-winning rapper told a British magazine that he's a totally dedicated father who saves money for his daughter's college fund. 

"Everything that I am doing right now is for Hailie. The money. The money  it's for her college," the rapper, whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III, tells this week's magazine. 

Eminem, who is divorcing wife Kim, also said that 5-year-old Hailie understands he's not the chainsaw-wielding, rapping psycho he plays onstage. 

"[She] knows at the end of the day Daddy is not what he says in his songs," Eminem said. "When I say I'll murder my baby's mother, maybe I wanted to do it, but I didn't do it. Anybody who takes it literally is a bigger idiot and 10 times sicker than I am."
