-- NEW YORK (September 26, 2006) — Martha Stewart wants Eminem to appear on her “Martha” TV show. Not because he can knit or bake brownies but because audience members love his music.
“We play his music during breaks to keep people very lively and they love him,” Stewart told AP Radio in a recent interview.
“I would really love to have Eminem on the show,” the 65-year-old lifestyle guru said. “I don’t think he knows that my demographic audience is so involved in Eminem music.”
Stewart said she’s not good at everything.
“I can’t pick up a guitar and play a fantastic song. … I cannot sit down at a piano and do that,” she said. “I’m happy about my knowledge in so many different subjects relating to living, but in terms of specifics, I don’t know if I’d be really very good on `The Young and the Restless.”’
However, Stewart does have a wild side.
She licked David Letterman’s jelly covered finger when he pretended to cut himself during a cooking segment with her on CBS’s “Late Show With David Letterman.”
“I knew it was jelly because I looked really carefully before I licked his finger. And I think he was looking for a reaction and didn’t know what I would do,” Stewart said.
“I’m sure he was totally shocked that I would lick his finger, as were many, many, many other people,” she said with a laugh.
