We never would have guessed that these two would connect, but apparently Elton John is helping rapper Eminem kick his drug habit! Elton told the British Press Association, "I've been helping Eminem over the last 18 months and he's doing brilliantly."
Elton also spoke to BBC Radio 5 over the weekend and said, "I'm there if people want my help. If people ask for help you tell them where to go but there's no point advising people if they don't want to do it."
Eminem recently admitted that he was taking as many as 20 Vicodin, Ambien and Valium in a day before seeking help, so hopefully Elton will be able to work some magic with him and keep him clean! Still though, who knew these two were buddies?
Doesn't this seem just a little strange?
