Legend Sir Elton John told BBC Radio yesterday that he has been helping American rapper Eminem, Marshall Mather, fight his drug addiction for more than a year now. John tells BBC that Eminem is succeeding in his well-publicized battle against substance abuse.

John said in his interview that he has compassion for those struggling with substance abuse. He stated that as a recovered drug addict, he is happy to help others with their addictions, but the drugs often make people so cocky and arrogant that they tend to reject help.
