Eminem and Pink have a history. She was featured on his 2010 Recovery track 'Won't Back Down'.
Still, the 38-year old needed some liquid courage before she asked him to return the favor.
She explained to Entertainment Weekly how alcohol played a role in Eminem getting on her new track 'Revenge.'
“I sneak-attacked him,” Pink, 38, admits to EW. “[Producer] Max [Martin] and I started making [“Revenge”], and I wrote this rap. We were drinking a lot of wine, and then I went home and I thought more wine would be a good idea.” Finally ready, “I emailed [Eminem],” she continues. “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.’ It was this long email, and he wrote back right away and just said, ‘Okay.'”So that's how you get Shady to collaborate. Results may vary depending on the Email's sender.
