Eminem has defended his latest attempt to stay relevant to the kids by pairing up with Pink and Rihanna on his latest album.
Famous for mocking pop stars including Mariah Carey, Britney Spears and Paris (hey, she made an album!), desperate for a hit the rapper invited Pink and Rihanna to sing on his new album Recovery.
And he is totally cool with his decision. "When I did the song that I did with Pink ['Won't Back Down'], I laid my parts first and kind of heard her on the record," Eminem told French radio station Skyrock FM."I felt like she would smash this record, so I gave her a call and she was with it, so we did it," he said.
"The other that I did with Rihanna ['Love the Way You Lie'] is one of those tracks that I felt only she could pull it off. Both of the records, I guess you just got to hear them to know what they are."
