I wish I could have seen the glistening shimmer in Eminem’s eye when he discovered that being transracial was an option in this era. Then I wish I could have been there to watch that shimmer fade as he witnessed the backlash Rachel Dozal received after being exposed. As of now the only person allowed to crossover to another color is that white woman from Germany who has gone from a pearly porcelain toilet tone to a shade of black in-between midnight and the witching hour. So Em is doing the next best thing until openly identifying as a black man becomes an option, date black women. He’s already had multiple appearances on BET, comes from Detroit, and enjoys hip hop. Honestly the only thing left to do was to date Nicki Minaj, which he has also just checked off of his “almost black but not really” checklist.
When a follower asked Nicki Minaj in the comments if she was dating the rapper, Minaj responded “Yes.”
Eminem got in on the conversation, responding, “Girl, you know it’s true.”That led Minaj to come back with the comment: “Babe, I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding. Yikes. I’ll talk to you when I get home.”
I doubt Nicki and Eminem’s union would even be considered interracial dating as Minaj has lightened her complexion over the years and wears blonde weave while Slim Shady looks like he has never owned a pair of Dockers or wore thong sandals without socks in his entire life. They meet somewhere in the middle and aren’t much different from any other couple with a “greener grass must be on the other side” complex. Undoubtedly this is all for attention because both of their careers are in the gutter. And when washed-up celebrities are in the gutter, relationship gossip and hook-up chatter can get them out.
