Yesterday Zane Lowe interviewed Elton John for a special Beats 1 broadcast ahead of Elton Johns 70th birthday this Saturday. Elton talked about his friendship with Eminem:
“I’m always a supporter of the people that are getting trashed. For me Eminem was never homophobic. I listened to the whole of the Marshall Mathers album when I drove to a show in South Hampton and I was floored by it. And I thought how could anyone think this is… he’s just writing about the way things are. Not how he thinks but the way things are…. I did the Grammys with Marshall and I became very big friends with Marshall. I’ll fight for anyone who is misunderstood and misrepresented by the idiots out there.”
