Gwen Stefani talks working with Eminem

He’s so incredible. He’s a real artist. He’s a real weirdo.

Gwen continues to ET, “I just finally got the call. It was one of those days where they were like, ‘Can you come do this?’ And I was like, ‘Really? Really?’ And they were like, ‘It has to be done today.’ And I was like, ‘Ok!’ And I just made it happen.”

“I went down there and my voice happened to not be working that day, and I was like, ‘Ok perfect — like, the one time I get asked to be on the Eminem song!?’ I don’t know – I just prayed really hard and the engineer made it come to life.”

“I’m driving, literally driving in the minivan with all my kids in the car… and on Bluetooth, somebody calls. And I’m like, ‘Hello?’ And it was him!” Stefani recounted. “And he’s like, ‘Hey just wanted to say thanks for doing the song. And I was like, ‘You don’t understand — I have all my kids in the car. You can’t call me right now. All my kids are in the car! Don’t say any bad words!’ I was literally going to soccer practice. But I was like, ‘I’m gonna make your song so cool!'”

Watch the video of Gwen saying the above at ET. This was the type of fun anecdotes I was looking for about their new single “Kings Never Die” since the collab kind of came out of left field. Nice to hear Gwen’s praise as this single continues to grow on me.
