Eminem: 'I Don't Really Date'

Eminem: 'I Don't Really Date'

Eminem covers his eyes in a dark gray hoodie on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone, out on newsstands this Friday (November 12).

Here’s what the 38-year-old rapper had to share with the magazine:

On whether or not it’s hard for him to trust people: “I have trust issues. With women, friends, whatever. You always wonder what their real motives are. I’ve got a small circle of friends, and it’s a lot of the same friends I’ve known forever. Right now, that works for me.”

On his battle with prescription drugs: “I came out of some difficult things these past couple of years. I kind of feel like I’m just now finding my footing. So I want to make sure that’s secure before I go out and do anything else. I need to keep working on myself for a while.”

On his love life and if he dates: “Not really. As far as going out, like dinner and a movieā€”I just can’t. Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I’d like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn’t? It’s just hard to meet new people, in my position.”

    hmmmm i wonder if he’s gay? he keeps saying “people” instead of “girl”

  • African Queen

    whatever… That cover is amazing.

  • Grace

    He doesn’t date because he is so difficult to get along with.

  • Jake

    @yassss That would explain his obsessive use of homophobic slurs in his lyrics…

  • i hate his face

    @African Queen: How is it amazing? LOL

  • K

    I love you Eminem :)

  • O Dear!

    Strange answer! U hope to date someday but it’s difficult in ur position.
    Odd answer.

  • http://www. V

    Does he EVER smile lol ? Doesn’t help his douche case.

    If you google ‘Eminem S” the first option that comes up is ‘Eminem smiling’………’s so rare lol.

  • O Dear!

    If he is gay, he is doing a great job of masking it.

  • laverdadduele

    Eminem is right, people can’t be trusted. He’s better off alone than with some famewhore fake b.i.t.c.h.

  • Erin

    @O Dear!:Most celebs are so busy always working or promoting or touring it becomes almost impossible to date.

    Unless it’s someone in the industry moving at a similar pace I guess.

  • Sacha,

    he seems Asexual to me.


    HE IS ALMOST 40 ????????

  • http://www. N.E.R.D

    On one hand I can’t hate cause he has talent

    On the other I despise how unclassy he is in his attitude. The fact that he is misogynist and offensive in many other ways..those aspects of his personality rub me up the wrong way. U have got to have no self-respect if you date a woman hater

  • Jacey

    LOVE YOU EMINEM! I feel bad he can’t’s got to be hard, imagine just trying to go out and all the paps that would be around. I’m so glad he’s starting to do better from the issues he’s had, he’s amazing. <3

  • Mrs. Mathers

  • karla

  • lw

    i don’t care if he’s gay or straight. he’s simply HOT. i <3 Marshall!

  • nonminti

    here any of you heard ANYTHING about Eminem? about social akwardness,about his marriage,hate-love with his wife? he can not trust people easily,that means that goes to women too. Damn,and you call him gay…I could believe if that was any other person :) that was really lame,but when you speak bullshit,you do that often :) Eminem is one real celebrity I personally trust as not the lying one.That is why his lyrics and even his attitude relates to me…

  • Emanuella Rodrigues

    Eminem… Adorooo’ ;x

  • Josh

    He is such a closet case!

  • Jokergurl

    I think he’s unique among performers, he doesn’t put on a pretense, he seems very raw, very real, it’s refreshing really and now that he’s sober, he’s ever better. Just read about his childhood, if you wonder why he has trust issues. He’s not happy go lucky either, he’s got anger issues to say the least, even he’s admitted this, so he doesn’t smile, who cares, at least he’s not FAKE.

  • What the

    Those who are saying he’s a woman hater are clearly retarded. He has three little girls at home, two he adopted that he’s not even the father of!

  • Lori

    Omg he said people once… Explaining that it’s hard to meet people period, and girls are people, FYI

  • Nala

    @nonminti: WELL SAID! !

  • Jacky Gomez

    Eminem is so gay. It’s very obvious at this point. The “thing” he had with Mariah Carrey started the rumours and it seems suddently he’ll pull a Ricky Martin.

  • Marshmellow

    he’s back with Kim anyway

  • Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    is he really gay? i doubt it. anyway, he is single because who would want to date that? and listen to that annoying voice all day? eww.

  • nonminti

    well I’m sorry,but I still keep laughing when someone says Eminem could be gay :) but I do not blame you,when you read all the time about Rachel Bilson you probably do not pay attention to others.. and I do not see anything wrong with being gay but really?are you serious? 2 minutes laughing again :)

  • rff

    I hate him for dissing Ledger in a rap song
    caling him a bobble head

  • yay

    I been a em fan since i was in elementary when he was in a group with a fat black guy with a shower cap.He made a comeback when i was 12 with curtaincall now im 18 and hes just back

  • yassss

    @Jacky Gomez: YASSSS! so true! I think he made that fight with her cuz she wouldn’t let him try on her her heels. I believe that.

  • Ririca

    It’s not odd at all, Eminem is right, it must be tough for people like him who care about the life and what they have. He’s just being careful.

    Love u Em

    from Brazil

  • Heather

    Why is everyone hating on Eminem? Everyone has some sort of problem they go through in their life. So especially if they are famous they go through a way different life style then us! I don’t blame him for having trust issues with a girl! Look at what Kim did to him. That bitch was a case. All that matters in the end is that he did what he had to do to clean himself up!! He went through a really hard time when his friend died it brought him down!! I commend him for all the battles his confronted, and now he is back and better than ever. The truth is he is real…he doesn’t hide who he is and he doesn’t care what anyone thinks!!!!

  • http://joker star

    I really hope that someday he will rap or sing about respecting his mom and appriciating her, he’s leading his life as a rich man because of her mom gave him a life
    He needs to grow up for himself and his daughter..

  • Heather


    Respect his mother…Are you serious? All she did was put the men in her life, alcohol. and drugs first! She doesn’t deserve respect or even the honor of being called a mother!

  • kate

    i’ll go out with you any time sexy

  • Anu

    Can someone introduce me – I know he will like me ;-)

  • nadria

    GAY. I luv you Em, one of the best rappers around, and I mean it. But, you have issues.

  • Erin


    how does speculating about his sexuality equate to hating? and what does his sexuality, gay OR straight, have to do with his talent?

    for the record, i love Eminem, i think he’s incredibly talented, and i don’t care one way or the other who he sleeps with ~ i’m disappointed either way that it will never be me! *lol*

  • George W

    Never been a fan of his crybaby poor me crap music.He probably is in the closet,I always got that gay vibe about him.He’s got issues and needs to grow up and man up.The angry kid attitude is getting way old for someone his age!

  • Krystal

    I totally understand the trust thing…I am kinda going through the same thing. I’ve loved E’s music for forever and have felt his pain….I would so love to meet him to meet the real him not the crazy crap you see on tv….But, I prob will never be able to really meet him..But, i would like to to really help him through some of his past….But,…Anyway…I LOVE EMINEM ;p

  • Jacob

    Eminem is the best! You haters just need to chill, Geez grow a heart ya bitches,,,,

  • q8yGirl

    i love him so much <3 i would give anything just to meet him he’s amazing and is a loving person :) i had a dream the other night were i met him and hang out with him i even huged the guy lol :P wish it was real cz it was so fkin AMAZING !!!

  • HipHop’n

    He’s not gay. He meant people in General. “Meet new people” as in Friends as well as Girlfriends. Let’s not judge anybody we don’t know. And as for the people who say they dislike his attitude against females: He was upset with Kim, His mother and another girlfriend and that’s why he says he hates women. These women have hurt him so badly, he might of thought he couldn’t trust women again. And as for his personality… I think he’s just having fun. Even when he gives the paparazzi the finger, it’s cute because that’s part of the image he’s trying to maintain.

  • gola

    seems little stranger !!!
    but I think he’s just trying to find someone who trust in him
    it’s not a big deal.. love U eminem :D
