Dating is hard. Super hard. That’s why I don’t do it. Well, okay, it’s one of the reasons. The primary reason is that I’m in a loving happy relationship. The second reason is that I’m f*cking useless at all things social. I write for the internet for a living so it might surprise you to discover I’m not exactly suave. I try, but trying to be suave and being suave are totally different things. So I’m lucky, really, because I don’t have to do that incredibly difficult awkward thing known as dating.
Others? They’re not so lucky. Tinder has sprung up to deal with people’s desire to
bone furiously form meaningful relationships and that’s cool but I’ve also heard it’s full of bots and spam accounts. Like, what would you do if you were on Tinder swiping left and right when suddenly you see the name “Marshall Mathers” next to a picture of Eminem?
You’d assume it was fake, yeah? Obviously because Eminem wouldn’t be on Tinder. That’d be ridiculous…
Except he totally used Tinder. The rapper opened up to vulture recently and revealed that ten years after his last divorce he has finally started to move on and date. This includes picking girls up at strip clubs—keep it classy buddy—but also using Tinder.
“Yeah, Tinder… And Grindr. I also used to go to strip clubs,” the rapper joked. Well… actually we assume he’s joking. If there are any gay guys out there who’ve been balls deep in Eminem we’d love to get the scoop. Wait… no. Not like that. We mean we’d like you to come forward so we can do an exclusive story on it. But if no one comes forward we’re just going to assume he was joking.
The star opens up about way more than this, and in the interview he comes off as friendly, funny and warm-natured. But we at DigZoo just could not get our heads around the idea that he used Tinder. How many poor Detroit locals swiped left on the multi-millionaire because they assumed it was a total joke? They must be kicking themselves now.
