#ThrowbackThursday: Remember When Eminem & Elton John Surprised EVERYONE With An Unlikely Duet Of Stan At The Grammys? Relive Their Performance HERE!

Back in 2001, something very, very, strange happened: Eminem and Elton John performed a duet at the Grammys.

Yes, Elton John, a musical legend and PROUD gay man, teamed up with a rapper fond of homophobic slurs.

What most people don't remember or know was the two were and ARE good friends.

It all started when it was announced that Eminem would perform at the Grammys, a move that enraged the LGBT community. Some people were so offended by the choice that they PROTESTED outside of the Staples Center the night of the Grammys.

So, why would Elton involve himself in such a controversial situation?

According to the musical maverick, he believed that Eminem's lyrics were not a representation of his true feelings but rather an expression of his alter ego.

To show his support of Eminem, Elton decided to perform alongside the rapper, lending his voice for Dido's sample on Stan.

Check out the performance (below)!

"That wasn't my finest moment. Every time I watch that video, the beginning bit properly makes me giggle. I remember sitting on the loo on the set with Eminem and Dr. Dre there and thinking: 'How surreal can life get?' It's quite hard to sit on the loo without wanting to go to the loo. It wasn't my sexiest moment."

- Dido, on filming the music video for her duet with Eminem on the single Stan, to NY Daily News

Dido: No, Her Son Isn't Named After Her Hit Song!

Filed under: Baby BlabberEminemCeleb Kidz

Just because Dido chose to name her son Stanley, that doesn't mean she was naming him after the hit song she had with Eminem years ago — a song called Stan!

Honestly, we didn't even connect the dots and had no idea that people were thinking that until she spoke up to squash rumors about it! LOLz! Here's what Dido said:

Sequel To Eminem's Song Stan In The Works…Without Em!

Filed under: Music MinuteEminemLil Wayne

Swizz Beatz asked Eminem to collaborate on a sequel to Marshall Mathers LP classic song Stan, but Em didn't want to idiotically ruin a classic song passed.

Lil Wayne didn't pass though, and he'll be working with Swizzy on the sequel to Stan, which is horrendously titled Anne.

Here's what Swizzy had to say about his decision to sequelize Stan:

“… taking something that people remember and putting them in that time and taking it to the next level, the way that Wayne tells Anne he’s sorry what happened to Stan. The album is crazy.”

Sorry, Swizzy. Most of the time, you seem to know what you're doing…

This is not one of those times.

How do U feel about a sequel to Em's classic song Stan?
