Eminem and Elton John famously collaborated for a performance of “Stan” at the 2001 Grammy Awards, which led to the two iconic artists becoming friends. During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Slim Shady became a topic of discussion and John shared a funny story about their friendship — including a hilarious wedding gift from Marshall Mathers.
After John spoke about his support of Eminem in the early 2000s and how the Shady Records boss wasn’t homophobic, Norton asked if it was okay to reveal a somewhat shocking item the legendary singer received from the rap star. John quickly jumped into the story, recounting how he and his husband David Furnish ended up with a lavish sex toy.
“From my marriage… Well, David and I did our civil partnership, I got this package from Eminem,” he revealed. “And shows you how homophobic he isn’t, we had two diamond-encrusted cock rings on velvet cushions. And I have to say they’ve remained unused.”
Unsurprisingly, the story produced plenty of laughter from the fellow guests and studio audience. As for Eminem, he is currently preparing for the release of his highly anticipated Revival album. The new LP is scheduled to drop on December 15.
