Is Eminem gay? I know, what a tabloid-y question. But according to Slim Shady himself, he may be playing both sides of the fence. Interesting.
In a recent interview with Vulture magazine, the “Lose Yourself” rapper was asked about his dating life, and his response was…well…unexpected.
When asked if he dates anyone, he responded:
“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.”
Of course, it get more interesting from there. Here’s a direct pull from the actual interview:
Interviewer: “When you were dating, how’d you meet people? Tinder?”
Eminem: “I mean, yeah.”
Interviewer: “Are you being serious?”
Eminem: “Yeah, Tinder.”
Eminem: “[Laughs] And Grindr. I also used to go to strip clubs.”
He also professed his love of going to strip clubs, telling the interviewer, “What can I say? Going to strip clubs is how I was meeting some chicks. It was an interesting time for me.”
So there you have it. Eminem just casually admitted to using a gay hookup app. Yes, the same rapper who at one time was infamous for his love of homophobic slurs. But you know what they say. The ones who constantly use the slurs are the ones who like to…you know what? Never mind. I’ll just leave it at that for now. I’m still in shock.
Of course, this is Eminem we’re talking about. I’m sure he’ll either deny or say it was all a joke by the time I finish typing this article out.
