Eminem shares why he and Rihanna are perfect together

Eminem and Rihanna have some “crazy” collaboration. For Em, linking up with RiRi on “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” was a no brainer, but it was more than just the pop star’s powering vocals on “The Monster” that won over the Rap God.

“The perception of the record, what it’s saying, I thought it would be a good idea to have her on it because I think people look at us like we’re both a little nuts,” Eminem said to MTV News’ Sway on Monday after he taped a town hall-style interview at his Shade 45 SiriusXM radio station. The interview will air on Tuesday (November 5) at 12 p.m. ET on Shade. “That’s one of the things that I was telling her in making the record: I think that people look at us a little crazy,” he continued.

On the track, Rihanna uses the hook to come to grips with her inner demons, while Em ponders the negative effects of his fame. “I’m friends with the monster that’s under my bed/ Get along with the voices inside of my head/ You trying to save me, stop holding your breath,” Rih sings to set-up Marshall’s crazy rhymes.

“As soon as I got the beat I just heard her on it,” Em said. “I wanted to make sure that I had it finished first to be able to present to her, but once I had the rhymes done, I sent it to her.”

Unfortunately, the duo, who first collaborated on “Love the Way You Lie” in 2010, didn’t get to log in a recording session together, but Em’s manager and Shady Records head Paul Rosenberg confirmed to MTV News that a video is forthcoming.

“I had to send it to her because schedules were conflicting and sh– like that. Plus, the record it was kinda pulled together at the last minute,” Em admitted. “I sent it to her, she laid the hook, sent it back. She smashed it like she does always. It’s pretty incredible.”
