Doing it Detroit style!
The two BOTH participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and both of them got showered with ice water in the most memorable ways!
But it was Eminem who provided the best face for the epic event as he was obviously not looking forward to the water dumping, but he took it like a champ, and the crowd loved him for it!
Guess who got the privilege of doing the honors for Slim Shady?
If you chose Rihanna, you'd be correct!
Here's the video that Eminem shared on Facebook
Oooooh la la!
Now, THIS is a height difference!

Isn't the Super Bowl itself party enough??
We guess not! Eminem totally got an offer to perform for the NFL Owners Party during Super Bowl week (whatever happened to just Super Bowl Sunday??), an offer that he had to turn down because it was offensively low by his standards or whatevz!
Apparently his going price is $2 million, and they only offered him
Wow! This is INCREDIBLE!!
Eminem cares, and he especially cares about those in his hometown of Detroit — and Michigan as a whole. He cares so much that the Marshall Mathers Foundation and Edward Norton's Crowdrise will match all donations up to $100,000 given to Wolverine Human Services on #GivingTuesday… which is TODAY!!
As of writing this, the donations are only around $50k, so we have some work to do! Plus, if you donate $10 or more today, you will be entered for a chance to win one of nine prizes from Eminem, including some amazing autographed swag!
It will make a huge difference to a city that needs it WAY more than people realize — so take a few minutes and do your part, and Eminem will do his!
CLICK HERE to help! So worth it!!
P.S. — Did U see his new video for Rap God?? HOLY SHIZZ! Check it out!

A few months ago, we were floored when Eminem opened up and was so candid with the world about his addiction problems.
We're glad that hasn't changed, because the more he reveals, the better the chance that someone will become inspired by his struggle… and he might even help someone who needs it!
He just spoke up again about his addiction to sleeping pills, and said his life could've gone down
Eminem wasn't about coke or crack or heroin or anything like that. No. He was all about prescription drugs — and he thought the distinction between those hardcore drugs we all hear about and those that are socially acceptable was the best excuse to keep using them… before he realized that they were killing him!
In a new documentary called How To Make Money Selling Drugs, Em didn't hold back when talking about his addiction to Xanax and Valium, among other things:
50 Cent knows how to not die from bullets. He's very experienced with that.
Though when it comes to hamburger assassins, he's proved he was nowhere near ready.
As we previously mentioned, he was admitted to the hospital for some serious stomach issues, apparently related to a bad hamburger.
While laying in the hospital, 50 was thinking about how serious this could possibly be, saying:
"I'm in a dead serious moment like, 'Damn, I don't believe this is happenin' right now.'"
Then Eminem called him to see how he was doing and 50 said Em was like:
"'Yo Fif, you were shot nine times man if you die over a burger, this sh*t ain't gonna go right. People ain't gonna be feelin' this.'"
So 50 was like, "Damn, he's right." So he just closed his eyes, clenched his fists, held his breath and after all the lights stopped flickering and the hospital stopped shaking… he was all better.
Jk, obviously that's not what happened, but he is feeling better now.
He dodged a metaphorical bullet (as compared to the real ones he's used to dodging) by not having to go into surgery to have a blockage in his small intestine removed.
"I'm feelin' better; I'm in good spirits."
Better to be in good spirits than to be a spirit!
Feel better, Fif!
