So it turns out that sometimes rockstars and actors also need a glass of wine or two to find their courage.
When Pink was recording her new album, Beautiful Trauma, she was desperate to do another duet with star rapper Eminem.
Years ago, the two previously worked together on Eminem’s ‘Won’t Back Down’ and Pink has been wanting to reunite, except there was one small problem… she wasn’t brave enough to send the email.
That was until she got drunk off of wine and decided that it was about time she sent the message.
Pink told Entertainment Weekly:
I sneak-attacked him. [Producer] Max [Martin] and I started making [‘Revenge’], and I wrote this rap.Partners: Garcinia Cambogia, Forskolin, Turmeric, HCG Diet, Apple Cider Vinegar Weight Loss, Beard Oil
We were drinking a lot of wine, and then I went home and I thought more wine would be a good idea.
I emailed [Eminem]. This is why they call it liquid courage.
And I said, ‘You know I love you. I like that you work with a lot of the same people, like Rihanna’.
‘She’s hotter than me, but I’m funnier. So I’m going for a rap Grammy, and I’d like to take you along with me.’
Eagerly awaiting a response, it didn’t take long for Eminem to reply but Pink got a dreaded one word answer.
It was this long email, and he wrote back right away and just said, ‘Okay’.
Typical guy response, right?
Even though he was in Rio De Janeiro at the time the request came in, Eminem recorded the track for Pink and sent it to her inbox just four days later.
Of course thrilled, Pink had quite the enthusiastic response.
I emailed him again, I was like, ‘This is the best thing I’ve ever heard! I want to tackle you and rub your face in the dirt!’
His response? He just wrote back and was like, ‘Okay’.
What a reply!
Beautiful Trauma, Pink’s first LP in five years, was released last Friday to praise from fans and critics alike.
Meanwhile Eminem is currently working on his new album which should be released in the new few weeks.
