Excite

Guess whose crack?

It seems that Eminem is indeed back again, otherwise we wouldn't be faced with the sort of bizarre stories from his personal life that always seem to accompany a new album release.

Only this time it's not about his mum, or his topsy-turvy relationship with his wife, oh no. This time we're peering into his chalk and cheese friendship with flamboyant ex-cokehead Elton John, who has been giving him drug counselling. Odd.

'I talk to Elton a lot. We became friends, and I talk to him about things, career-wise. He had a substance-abuse problem in the past. So when I first wanted to get sober, I called him, because he’s somebody in the business... who can relate to the lifestyle and how hectic things can be.

'He understands, like, the pressure and any other reasons that you wanna come up with for doing drugs. So I told him, ‘Look, I’m going through a problem, and I need your advice.'
