Eminem’s dig on Amy Winehouse in his latest single seems to make sense after reports emerged that the singer snubbed the rapper’s offer to feature in his comeback album Relapse.
The Real Slim Shady was said to have eyed teaming up with Amy to recreate the success of his superhit track Stan.
But the Rehab hitmaker had allegedly turned down his offer.
“Amy was flattered by the offer. She loves hip-hop and is a big fan of Eminem. But she didn’t feel it was the right thing to do at the present time,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.
Another source added: “Eminem has followed Amy’s career closely. They have both had drug addiction issues and he empathises with her and hoped to feature her on Relapse.
“His idea was to make a track as magical as Stan. But unfortunately Amy declined.
“He understands that recently she hasn’t been in a state to focus on music because of her tumultuous private life but he hopes they will get together on a future project.”
Despite his admiration for his fellow singer, Eminem does not spare her and her jailbird hubby Blake Fielder-Civil from his tongue lash in his new single We Made You.
The Academy Award- and Grammy-winner knocks out Amy twice, rapping about her drug past, saying: “Amy, rehab never looked so good. I can’t wait, I’m going back.”
