Even Eminem Uses Tinder

When you’re ultra-famous, you exist in a bubble away from the rest of society, mostly for your own protection. But it gets lonely in that bubble and sometimes, like the royal kid in The Prince and the Pauper, you long to get out into the real world so you can live like a normal person.

This brings us to Eminem, who admitted to Vulture that he used Tinder to get dates. The Q&A went like this.

Do you date?
It’s tough. Since my divorce I’ve had a few dates and nothing’s panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public. Dating’s just not where I’m at lately.

When you were dating, how’d you meet people? Tinder?
I mean, yeah.

Are you being serious?
Yeah, Tinder.

[Laughs] And Grindr. I also used to go to strip clubs.

I think a lot of long-term relationships start in strip clubs.
What can I say? Going to strip clubs is how I was meeting some chicks. It was an interesting time for me.

Is fame lonely for you?
Am I lonely? No, I’m good. Thanks for asking though.

Is he serious? Dunno, but it’s fascinating to think about Eminem swiping on Tinder–and people swiping left on him. Read the whole interview here.
