    Just heard a fun fact in a podcast I'm listening to where they're interviewing the members of Chromeo. One of them used to be the hip-hop editor for Vice magazine in the late 90s and he got the chance to interview Eminem before he was famous, who told him:

    1. his favorite rapper (at least at the time) was Ma$e (Paul also allegedly confirmed this with him)
    2. he had *just* died his hair blonde and remarked that people were gonna think he's crazy

    He also had eminem record the answering machine message for his record store lol

    Short segment, but it's about 48 minutes in:

    Eminem is one of the most controversial celebrities of all time. He often finds himself in hot water and he's never really out of the public eye. Regardless, he's one of the most private rappers around. Of course, his music is very personal and a way for him to deal with his feelings.

    It might come as a shock, but Eminem does have feelings. He gives off a tough guy persona, but he's got a weakness when it comes to women. Eminem is one of the greatest rappers of all time. He's made a lot of money during his career and reached heights he never dreamt possible. On the other hand, he's different than most rappers on the scene. Eminem keeps his dating life and relationships on the down-low for the most part.

    Eminem often raps about his many enemies and frustrations in life. However, he usually stays away from the details of his love life. He's never been in a high-profile relationship with another celeb. For most of his life, he was in an intense relationship. For years, there have been wild rumors of love affairs and romances. Eminem's bragged about a few famous ladies, too.

    It's time to take a closer look at Eminen and his love life. Here are 14 Lesser-Known Facts About Eminem's Love Life.

    14SECRETLY DATED MARIAH CAREY

    As noted, Eminem often keeps details of his private life out of the spotlight. However, there are two exceptions to that rule. For years, Em has claimed he had a six-month relationship with pop singer, Mariah Carey. Carey denied the claims, but that didn't stop Em from rapping about it.

    Eventually, Carey released the track, "Obsessed," which was about Eminem. Carey's ex-husband, Nick Cannon, also got involved in the feud, which reignited a few months ago. Despite all the bad blood, Eminem continues to claim that he once dated Carey.

    Eminem often talks about his on-again-off-again relationship with Kim Scott. The toxic relationship found its way into his music and the news. They first met as teenagers, long before Eminem was a household name. Kim remembers seeing Eminem jump on a table and rap without a shirt on.

    Kim and her sister, Dawn, moved in with Eminem and his mother when Kim was a teen. Em and Kim soon started an intense relationship that would last for years. It would also become one of the primary sources of his material.

    12DATED BRITTANY MURPHY

    In the late 90s, Eminem exploded onto the music scene. He soon became the number one rapper in the world. In 2002, he starred in the semi-autobiographical film, 8 Mile. The on-screen romance with his co-star, Brittany Murphy, blossomed into a real-life relationship.

    The pair briefly dated after appearing in 8 Mile together. Murphy admitted to the relationship and claims he broke her heart. It's easy to see how they'd fall for each other after the intense scenes in the movie.

    Eminem became world-famous (at least, in part) for rapping about how much he hates his baby mama, Kim Scott. Despite the violent lyrics, Eminem and Kim finally tied the knot in 1999. Of course, this only intensified the relationship...and brought more problems.

    The marriage was big news since he raps about Kim as much as he raps about his mother. They essentially ended up taking care of three kids together. In addition to Hailie, they also raised Kim's child from another relationship and Kim's niece.

    Of course, Eminem helped fuel the rumor with many of his wild lyrics. He doesn't hold back and gives graphic details. Eminem mentioned Reid years later on his 2019 album, Kamikaze.

    This is a shit article and post. However, I do wish Em would comment on his love life. I'm a fan of the person as well as the music. Always wondered where this story lead (instead of simply abandoning it all together musically).
