Kid Cudi admits he wasn’t happy with his Eminem collaboration at first

Kid Cudi and Eminem

Kid Cudi has revealed that he wasn’t happy with how his recent collaboration with Eminem turned out at first.

The pair dropped their new single ‘The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady’ last Friday (July 10).

The track sees Eminem referencing the COVID-19 pandemic and the deaths of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery. At one point he says “fuck Drew Brees” – referencing the NFL quarterback who claimed that taking a knee disrespects the US flag.

Speaking to Lil Wayne on his Young Money radio show on Apple Music, Cudi said the collaboration came about after Slim Shady and Cudi previously appeared on the show.

“The ship was in motion after that because then we had reached out,” he said. “I was like, ‘Yo, let’s reach out to Paul Rosenberg (Eminem’s manager), man. Let’s do this the right way. Really connect with him and let him know that we’re trying to get up with Em’. I had the record and I just was like, ‘Man, let’s send it to him. The worst that could happen is, he doesn’t fuck with it, and then at the end of the day, I won’t be mad about it’.”

He continued: “So I just sent it off and he responded back. They said, ‘he fuck with it’. And they were asking questions like when I was thinking about releasing it and all these things and I was just like, ‘Whoa, it seems like he’s going to write this shit’.

“All right. Okay. So I mean, he sent it right back and, man, I got him on the phone. I had to tell him, I was like, ‘Yo bro, you fucking destroyed this shit’. Because I was nervous because I was like, ‘Man, I’m fucking going get him Eminem on my song, he going body me on my own shit’. But I was like, fuck it. like, fuck it. I just want a joint with Em, so.”

Cudi returned with the single ‘Leader of the Delinquents’ back in April, marking his first solo track since December 2016. He has since joined forces with Travis Scott on ‘The Scotts’ and teased a ‘Kids See Ghosts’ animated show with Kanye West.

Last month, Eminem apologised to Diddy‘s Revolt TV after criticising them in a recently leaked verse. “I never meant for that verse to be heard, I was heated in the moment and thought better of it and decided to pull it back,” he explained.

Beatles girlfriends: Who were the Beatles dating before they got famous?

“It had been the same with other girlfriends I’d had. There was something the matter with me.”

Despite these difficulties, Cynthia and John got married, after she became pregnant with their son, Julian Lennon.

Speaking about how Cynthia felt about their marriage when Beatlemania hit in her 2006 book, John, she said: “I was usually dismissed as the impressionable young girl who fell for him, then trapped him into marriage.”

Cynthia also claimed she was told to pretend she was someone else to keep her marriage to John secret in their early days, telling NPR: “I was asked many times if I was John’s wife, and I had to refuse and say, ‘No, no, I’m somebody else.’”

Julian was born on April 8, 1963, but John said unsavoury things about him in his 1980 interview with Playboy.

Here to slay! Viola Davis is on board with one fan’s tweak to the Kylie Jenner cameo in Cardi B‘s “WAP” music video.

“Who did this? 😩🤣😍 #HowToGetAwayWithWAP,” the 54-year-old Oscar winner wrote via Instagram on Sunday, August 9, alongside an edit of her face on the 23-year-old reality star’s body.

Taraji P. Henson, Questlove, SZA and more stars couldn’t contain their laughter in the comments of Davis’ post. “Hahah but why do I love it 🔥😂,” Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Porsha Williams wrote.

The most supportive comment of all, however, came from the 27-year-old “Bodak Yellow” rapper herself. “I’m so fan out right now ya don’t even know,” Cardi tweeted on Sunday, sharing the hilarious edit on her own feed.

On Friday, August 7, Cardi broke the internet with the video for her latest single with Megan Thee Stallion. Jenner was one of many famous faces to appear in the visual, along with Normani, Rosalía, Mulatto and Rubi Rose. Despite the fierce female empowerment on display in the video, fans weren’t too happy with the decision to include the Kylie Cosmetics founder in such an otherwise diverse group of women.

“Normani did ALL this and Kylie walked down the hall and opened a door,” one fan tweeted about the video on Sunday. “If that’s not a perfect visual indication of Black women having to do the most and white women do the bare minimum to get somewhere, I don’t know what is.”

Cardi, however, was quick to fire back at the negativity surrounding Jenner’s cameo, noting that the makeup mogul was “so lovely” to her daughter, Kulture, and her sister, Hennessy, at Stormi Webster‘s birthday party.

“Normani is one of the best female artist that dances Like she dances her f–kin ass off! Why would she open a door? Please tell me how that would make sense?” the Grammy winner replied. “The best part of the song is the beat & hook it what makes you want to shake your ass. … Not everything is about race. Theres issues out here in the world that it is about race that I preach all the time about. This is not about f–kin race.”

John Lennon Elton John: Did they ever collaborate? Story behind Sir Elton and Lennon songs

Published

By

However, John and Sir Elton’s collaborations were few but mainly consisted of the pair contributing their musical talents to each other’s work.

First, Sir Elton asked for his friend’s help on a Beatles cover, and in 1974 John helped Sir Elton form his version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

The B-side to this track was One Day at a Time, by John Lennon, and thus began a beautiful partnership.

Of course, John was not going to appear on the track in a normal way, and instead, he was credited as Dr Winston O’Boogie, with Winston being John’s middle name.
