Elton, Feminem's Sponsor?

| Filed under: Elton JohnEminem


Sort of.

Eminem recalls the days after leaving his stint in rehab and tells Vibe that what really got him through was the support he received from pal, Elton John.

The rapper kept in constant contact with his superstar friend, as Elton would call several times a week just to check on him

"He was really supportive, and still is to this day."

And why did Fem choose Elton as his buddy to call?

"I knew he was in recovery and I just wanted to reach out to somebody who was on the same level as far as fame."


You are nowhere near the same level of fame.

But let's hope you stay straight long enough to possibly work with him again!

  3. 3

    You're right he should have picked you

  4. 4

    and to everyone who thinks Eminem is anti-gay


  5. 5

    They're friends? I thought Eminem didn't like gays.

  6. 6

    Well Mario, YOU'RE DEFINATELY nowhere near as famous as either one of these guys…especially Eminem…In fact, nobody gives a shit about your fat ass…So keep trying…The only thing that makes me happy is that you stopped your little-girl Miley-hating period..

  7. 7

    and Perez you should really stop bashing Eminem and call him by his real name. His name is not Feminem, you should be glad that he is somewhat supportive of the gay community and not constantly talking shit about it like other rappers.

    We need more rappers like Eminem and Kanye that support EVERYONE!

    I don't know…I just can't see it!

  11. 11

    uhm, eminem has no fame?
    you're such a dbag. you will never have as much fame as eminem.
    he trumps you.

  12. 12

    Of Course he is on the same Level of fame, He is known world wide and brings interest which is why he is on your site, No other rapper gets on your site as much as he does. 50 cent once in a blue moon along with Jay-z stop hating on the guy, obviously he is extremely talented.

    RELAPSE THIS TUESDAY 5/19/09 " HIS SECOND BEST ALBUM " Been Listening for a 10 days and can not wait to support him and go buy it.

    Shame! Elton should had let him overdosed, that way the world would have been rid of one more vile nasty pig of a human being!!!

  15. 15

    Re: CoDy A – how the fuck is he even one bit supportive of the gay community when he writes such vile, offensive and violently anti-gay lyrics!!! which his young impressionable and stupid young fans absorb as an ok way to treat gay and lesbian people, sorry but just because he's "besties" with Elton doesn't mean he's not a homophobe, and also what has he ever done concretely to support the gay community with money or anything else, he's a white trash looser! and I am glad his new cd is getting such dismal response

    "On the same level of fame" Hmmm. Elton's been famous since about 1970. Was Em even BORN yet?

  18. 18

    does anyone here have any clue what eminem has done for rap? he may not have the career longevity that elton has (he is WAY younger), but eminem is one of the main reasons that rap has reached any kind of commercial appeal..Marshall Mathers LP is still one of the top selling albums of any genre..not to mention eminem is top 5 rappers of ALL TIME..please folks do your research before you speak

  19. 19

    Looks like Em los the weight. He got a little fat for a minute there and was staying out of the cameras.

  21. 21

    The same level as far as fame??? Wow, another celebutard with an overblown sense of self. So, he can't reach out to anyone "lower" on the fame chart than Elton? Their advice wouldn't be as good? Asshat

  22. 22

    Too Bad for Feminen that Green Day's CD is out May 15 which will hopefully mean he will be denied a # 1 debut, I don't even like Green Day that much but I am buying 10 copies just to get them to # 1

    even if you don't think he's talented…he is very famous…and as much people might hate to admit it…if elton john walked down the street with sweats and a tee shirt on he would be passed without comment a hell of a lot more than Em wearing the same sweats…..In the era of Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian we know fame has nothing to do with talent…..btw Em is ridiculously talented..just because he doesn't say what you like doesn't make him any less…. and comparing Em and Elton John's talent is like comparing Peyton Manning and Derek Jeter saying one's a better athlete than the other….

    Emienm is better then Elton…Sorry but maybe back in the day Elton was good now..who the fuck cares about Elton. Eminem is the shit. Perez you are such a hater. It's sad. Can't you be more positive?

  26. 26

    STOP FUCKING CALLING HIM FEMINEM! what's wrong with being a woman? asshole

  27. 27

    Elton may be gay, but he's a real man. Unlike you, mario, who is on his knees these days, kissin ass, suckin cocks and having his brain sanitized

  28. 28

    What a random friendship…
    And Perez you should reevaluate yourself.. guess who isn't even near Eminem's level of fame?

  29. 29

    Oh, and he wasn't saying that they were on the same level of fame.. he was saying they were on the same level… as in fame. Not that he was as famous as him.. he is just saying they can relate because they are both in the similar situation of having the media's attention on them

  30. 30

    perez you are right for once, elton john is SO much more epic than feminem

  31. 31

    Lol Perez Elton is soooo on his same level now I dont think you even know one digit of Elton's number lol… then you call yourself Elton's senior hahahahaha
    Whine all you want, Eminem is a megastar so does Elton and they are BOTH toleraant enough to have a nice conversation and give each others advice so Perez cry all you want but they are happy and you are just a HATER!

  32. 32

    what a has been.

  33. 33

    Watch it perez, eminem may write a rap about YOU and release it as a single for Relapse 2.

  34. 34

    he could be on the same level it just depends on who you ask. eminem is talented. besides, if em has a guy like elton john calling him several times a week and willing to perform with him then obviously elton john thinks he's worthy enough. some people (perez) love to make something out of nothing

  35. 35

    perez, you really are starting to get on my nerves, your so rude!!

  36. 36

    oh now that ems working with a fag you dont call him feminem anymore? retard

  37. 37

    Eminem is soooo much more famous than Elton at present. The internet has given celebs a much broader audience that Elton didn't have access to when he was at his prime. When Eminem did Stan with Elton John it was to prove that he has nothing against gay people. Elton did it to milk the publicity that Eminem could generate in an attempt to resurrect his career.

  38. 38

    Elton John also helped Michael Jackson back in the day (during the first child molestation case) when he was addicted to painkillers.

  39. 39

    eminem is on the same level of fame now as elton john was bak in the day .. i mean come on perez mentions him EVERYtime he updates his blog .. even if he hasnt got anything particularly interesting to say.

    people are sating who cares about eminem coz hes went on hiatus for soo long the real question should be WHO REALLY GIVES A FLYING FUCK ABOUT ELTON JOHN?? (people over the age of 35 and most likely gay rights activitsts dont count)

  40. 40

    I think it's great they are friends. Eminem needs a mentor like Elton John who has been through the ups and downs of fame for the last 30 or so years and has opened his heart to Eminem. Eminem is an "image" everything he raps about is for entertainment value and it works for him and pop culture. It doesn't make him a bad person or that he really does or hates all the things he is rapping about. He is entertaining for the generation of people who want to be shocked and awwed and that's exactly what he does. He is very famous as is Elton. He is iconic in rap culture as Elton is iconic in Rock culture. It's 2 different types of fame that you can't really compare in one quote from Eminem.

    Re: awwwshiiiiite – Errr for this old man rap has been around since the 80's so I'm not quite sure what he did as far as establishing the genre, do your research rather than finding record sale figures that establish em as 5 most influential rather than top5 best seller.

    can you stop calling him feminem? Thanks, its really getting annoying. And I dont know how you would even think that Eminem is not on the same level of fame, ya he may not get as much respect from certain people. But they cater to completely different audiences, mainly. If you listned to Eminem outside of his songs, you know that he is not homo phobic, that he is not an abusive murderer. As he mentions time and time again, his music is a reflection of his feelings and personel life in an exxagerated twisted sick way. get over it.

    he looks quite hot there,
    with brown hair
    i'd tap that.
