Pink Asked Eminem To Collab On A Song And He Responded Like Every Guy You've Ever Texted
For a rapper, he's a man of few words.
Well, the pop star is finally releasing her new album, Beautiful Trauma, which features a collab with Eminem. And the whole thing never would've happened had it not been for a few glasses of wine.
She told Entertainment Weekly, "I sneak-attacked him. Max [Martin] and I started making 'Revenge,' and I wrote this rap. We were drinking a lot of wine, and then I went home and I thought more wine would be a good idea.”
“I emailed [Eminem]. This is why they call it liquid courage. And I said, ‘You know I love you. I like that you work with a lot of the same people, like Rihanna. She’s hotter than me, but I’m funnier. So I’m going for a rap Grammy, and I’d like to take you along with me.’ It was this long email, and he wrote back right away and just said, ‘Okay.’”
“I emailed him again. I was like, ‘This is the best thing I’ve ever heard! I want to tackle you and rub your face in the dirt!’ He just wrote back and was like, ‘Okay.’”
Pink elaborated on how their collaboration came about during an interview on the UK's Lorraine. She said:
I reached out to him in this case. I love him. I've always loved him. I think he's a lyrical genius. And I just wrote him a love letter... I wrote him an email, and I said, "I love you. I've always loved you. I've loved you since you gave me your autograph at the 2001 MTV Music Video Awards..." I just wrote this love letter, and he just wrote back, "OK."
