Eminem bought Elton John and David Furnish matching c**k rings
Eminem and Elton John are longtime friends, so perhaps it won’t come as too much of a surprise that the rapper’s wedding gift was… intimate.
Elton John made the revelation in an interview with The Guardian where his celebrity friends submitted the questions to be asked. The question from Eminem simply read: “Have you used your wedding gift yet?”
“Ah, no,” John answered.
“Eminem bought me and David matching cock rings when we got married. That was his gift. They sit there, like the crown jewels, in this beautiful box on satin cushions.
“They’re wonderful to look at. I don’t know if any guests we’ve had have used them. God, I hope not. They’re kind of sacrosanct. The fact they came from Eminem makes it even better. It’s very him, as is this question.”
Elton John and Eminem have been friends for years.
John also revealed that he still has regular contact with Eminem and he calls the rapper every couple of months.
“Every time he picks up the phone he says the same thing: ‘Hello, you old c**t, how are you?’”
Elsewhere in the interview, John said that he has helped “a lot of people get sober” – including Eminem.
This is not the first time John has opened up about his friendship with Eminem. During a 2017 appearance on The Graham Norton Show, John explained why he decided to perform with the rapper at the 2001 Grammy Awards.
“He was accused of being homophobic by so many people because of his lyrics, which I thought was nonsense,” John explained.
They sit there, like the crown jewels, in this beautiful box on satin cushions.
“I came out and supported the fact that he isn’t.
“We became friends. We’ve been amazing friends ever since. He’s an amazing guy… I just adore him.”
The rapper has been criticised in the past for using homophobic slurs.

Eminem has come under fire on a number of occasions for remarks made in relation to the LGBT+ community.
On his 2018 song ‘Fall’ Eminem referenced Tyler, The Creator and said: “Tyler create nothing, I see why you called yourself a faggot, bitch/It’s not just ‘cause you like attention.
“It’s cause you worship D12’s balls, you’re sac-religious/If you’re gonna critique me, you better at least be as good or better.”
Eminem later said the lyric went “too far”.
Elton John responded to the controversy at the time and applauded Eminem for apologising for the use of the slur.
“I’m very happy that you said you don’t get to use the word f****t anymore because I think you don’t need to… you’re bigger than that.”
