In case you didn’t know, Eminem and Elton John are actually friends and, apparently, they’re close enough to give each other gifts. In a new interview on The Graham Norton Show, Elton John recalled the time that Eminem gave him a wedding present and it was quite the explicit surprise.
According to the music legend, the “Walk on Water” rapper gifted him with sex toys in celebration of his civil partnership to David Furnish. The gift came during Eminem’s prime music era, in which he was heavily accused of being homophobic. “He was accused of being homophobic by so many people because of his lyrics, which I thought was nonsense,” Sir Elton said.
Contrary to the popular opinion however, Elton John said that he was quite the opposite. “I came out and supported the fact that he isn’t [homophobic] and I appeared on the Grammys with him doing ‘Stan.'”
And as more proof that Em is accepting of all sexual orientations, the rapper reportedly gave him a special item to celebrate the happy day. “When David [Furnish] and I did our civil partnership, I got this package from Eminem,” he explained. “It shows you how homophobic he isn’t! It had two diamond encrusted c**k rings on velvet cushions.”
It may have been a thoughtful gesture, but Elton John admits that, to this day, the sexy toys have “remained unused!”
