Eminem has shared some details about his love life recently; and it doesn’t involve obsessing over Mariah.
In an interview with Vulture, the rapper confessed he’s been using dating apps, when Vulture asked how he met people:
“Well, yeah. Yeah Tinder.
“And Grindr. I also used to go to strip clubs,” he said.
He continued: “What can I say? Going to strip clubs is how I was meeting some chicks. It was an interesting time for me.”
Oh honey, if you think you’re gonna find LOVE on Grindr, you’ve definitely been mislead. Although saying that, as a straight man, he’d probably do better on there most of us.
For those you who can’t differentiate between a joke and coming out the closet, a rep has since reiterated: “I’m confirming that he was joking about using both Tinder and Grindr.”
“It’s tough. Since my divorce I’ve had a few dates and nothing’s panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public. Dating’s just not where I’m at lately. Am I lonely? No, I’m good. Thanks for asking though.”
He was also asked about the “anti-gay” lyrics/nature in his songs, often being accused of being homophobic:
“The first time I got a taste of being called anti-gay was on “My Name Is” when I said, My English teacher wanted to have sex in junior high / The only problem was my English teacher was a guy. All I was saying was I don’t swing that way. So when I started getting flak for it, I thought, Alright, you people think I’m homophobic? Watch this. Hence the Ken Kaniff character and all that stuff. I was trying to push the buttons of people who were calling me something that I wasn’t.
“The honest-to-God truth is that none of that matters to me: I have no issue with someone’s sexuality, religion, race, none of that. Anyone who’s followed my music knows I’m against bullies — that’s why I hate that fucking bully Trump — and I hate the idea that a kid who’s gay might get shit for it.”
Elton John has always defended his collaborator saying that he was “never homophobic” and praised his Marshall Mathers album for “writing about the way things are”.
