Eminem's manager denies rapper is planning a duet with Lady Gaga
Paul Rosenberg says reports that Eminem will be collaborating with Gaga are 'made up'
Eminem's manager Paul Rosenberg has taken to Twitter to deny reports that the rapper is planning a duet with Lady Gaga.
Slim Shady, who is currently working on new material, was rumoured to have recorded a collaboration titled 'Street Lights' with the singer and fellow hip-hop artist Kendrick Lamar.
However Rosenberg has quashed these reports, writing: "People don't hear from Marshall for a spell and they just start making stuff up. Thirsty world."
The reports come from an interview which Eminem gave to MTV Rapfix that he had recorded an "upbeat" song with Lady Gaga. He was reported to have said: "Yeah, I got this crazy record with GaGa and Kendrick for the upcoming LP. It's called 'Street Lights', and it's just a real upbeat record. We don't have a release date yet, but it'll be after Slaughterhouse's album."
Last week, Eminem became the first musician to secure over 60 million fans on Facebook, beating Lady Gaga and Rihanna to the record. He has long been the most popular person on the social networking site, taking the honour from Michael Jackson way back in 2009.
The rapper also recently confirmed that he has begun work on his new album and that regular producer Dr Dre will definitely "be involved". He released his seventh studio album 'Recovery' in 2010 and earlier this year postponed filming his second lead role in new movie Southpaw to focus on his new record.
His most recent recorded output was a collaboration with rapper Royce Da 5'9' under the name Bad Meets Evil. They released their debut EP 'Hell: The Sequel' last year.
