Earlier this week, rumors hit the web that Eminem and Lady Gaga had collaborated on a track called "Street Lights." With Slim Shady’s powerful hip hop influence and Gaga’s reign over pop music, many fans have anticipated the two getting together in the studio for quite some time. However, Eminem’s manager, Paul Rosenberg, shut down the "Street Lights" rumors with an attitude that suggests that maybe there’ll never be a feature between Mother Monster and the Detroit rapper.
"People don’t hear from Marshall for a spell and they just start making stuff up," he tweeted. "Thirsty world!"
The rumor mill began to churn after various music sites reported that Eminem had discussed the collaboration with MTV RapFix, saying that he did "a crazy record with Gaga and Kendrick [Lamar]." Since Gaga and Kendrick are tight, the rumors seemed plausible, but an original article of the interview could not be located. Rosenberg’s statement further put the kibosh on the speculation. The song was rumored to surface after the release of the hip hop group Slaughterhouse’s new album, Welcome to: Our House, which is due out August 28. If Shady did do a record with Gaga, fans reportedly will have to wait until then to hear it.
