Eminem has recently been very open about his battle with drug addiction. MTV News reports that in an interview with Detroit’s Metro Times, the rapper says he went to Elton John for advice. Em explained the two “became friends” and he went to John when he was in need of career advice as well as guidance for his drug addiction, since Elton also had a substance-abuse problem in the past. Slim Shady said that he and John have had “similar lives.” Eminem added that he and rapper T.I. also exchange advice.
