In a new interview with Vulture, writer David Marchese sat down with Eminem to talk about everything from Donald Trump to new music to what TV and film has been tickling his fancy as of late. The greatest tidbit, however, has got to be when Vulture asks about his dating life. It goes as follows:
Do you date?
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.
When you were dating, how’d you meet people? Tinder?
I mean, yeah.
Are you being serious?
[Laughs] And Grindr. I also used to go to strip clubs.
I guess we can all assume the Grindr response is a joke, as Em has a long history of homophobic lyricism (though Sir Elton John claims the dude is good as a gold cock ring), but the fact that Eminem is on regular-ass Tinder feels like a real shock. Isn’t RAYA for people with money and nice cars and shit? Like, if I’m in L.A., there’s no reason I should be able to swipe right on the most famous white rapper of all time while sitting on the can. Anyway.
