An unlikely diva has become a shoulder to cry on…an advice giver…an ear for listening…a life saver to one of rap’s most controversial superstars. Yep, according to Eminem, Elton John helped him conquer his drug problem. Whaaat?! The homophobe that Eminem claims to be? Well now, Eminem has Elton John to thank for saving his life!
Eminem says, “I talk to Elton a lot. We became friends, and I talk to him about things, career-wise. He had a substance-abuse problem in the past. So when I first wanted to get sober, I called him, because he’s somebody in the business… who can relate to the lifestyle and how hectic things can be. He understands, like, the pressure and any other reasons that you wanna come up with for doing drugs.”
“So I told him, ‘Look, I’m going through a problem, and I need your advice.”
And it sure helps that Sir Divalicious Elton John battled booze and drug addiction himself years ago! In fact, I’m almost thinking Elton should start a rehab/counseling center. Other celebs that Auntie Elt has reached out to have included: Victoria and David Beckham, Pete Doherty and Robert Downey Junior.
