Eminem Clarified His Grindr Comment

Yesterday, we shared the news that Eminem said that he used Grindr to find dates.

In an interview with Vulture to promote his new album Revival, Eminem talked about dating and said a line that raised more than a few eyebrows.

V: Do you date?
E: It’s tough. Since my divorce I’ve had a few dates and nothing’s panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public. Dating’s just not where I’m at lately. 

When you were dating, how’d you meet people? Tinder?
I mean, yeah. 

Are you being serious?
Yeah, Tinder. 

Really?
[Laughs] And Grindr. I also used to go to strip clubs. 

As you can imagine, that comment got some people talking (because some people can't tell if he's joking or not).

Now, Eminem is clarifying the statement through a spokesperson to confirm that it was just a joke.

“I’m confirming that he was joking about using both Tinder and Grindr,” the rep told The Muse.

So for those who swear Eminem is hiding in the closet, you're not getting a coming out story today.
