Elton John became Eminem's drugs counsellor - Daily Gossip
Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Elton John briefly assumed the role of drug counsellor for Eminem, according to the rapper. "When I first wanted to get sober, I called him," Slim Shady admitted. "He understands, like, the pressure and any other reasons that you wanna come up with for doing drugs." Now that he's clean, the rapper says he still sees John as an unlikely guidance figure. "I still talk to him about things, career wise," he said (The Sun).
