S--- my dad says? Not if your dad's Eminem.

The rapper may use R-rated lyrics in his rhymes, but around the house the mouth stays clean.

"I'm a parent. I have daughters," Eminem, 37, tells 60 Minutes in an interview airing Sunday. "I don't cuss. I mean, how would I really sound, as a person … walking around my house [saying] 'Bitch, pick this up,' you know what I mean?"

Eminem, who has a daughter Hailie, 14, with ex-wife Kim, is also bringing up Lainey, daughter of Kim's sister, and Whitney, Kim's daughter from a previous relationship.

"Profanity around my house? No," he says. "I feel like it's your job to parent them."
