Eminem Talks Women, Dating In New Issue Of Rolling Stone

A very sith-lord looking Eminem appears on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone, which hits stands this Friday. Or if you’re like me, you’ll get it in the mail even though you’ve never subscribed.

In the issue, the rapper – also pictured at the BET awards in June – gets in-depth about what his life has been like the past few years and what he was doing while out of the limelight and battling his inner demons. He also talks about his trusting women and what it’s like to date…

An excerpt from the interview:

Do you think it’s hard for you to trust women?

I have trust issues. With women, friends, whatever. You always wonder what their real motives are. I’ve got a small circle of friends, and it’s a lot of the same friends I’ve known forever. Right now, that works for me. I came out of some difficult things these past couple of years. I kind of feel like I’m just now finding my footing. So I want to make sure that’s secure before I go out and do anything else. I need to keep working on myself for a while.

What about your love life? Do you date?

Not really. As far as going out, like dinner and a movie—I just can’t. Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I’d like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn’t? It’s just hard to meet new people, in my position.
