Rapper Eminem drops a tiny bomb in his latest interview Vulture – leaving his fans super confused.

The mega star rap hit maker, 45, was speaking with Vulture upon the release of his new album “Revival” when talk turned to his dating life.

Divorced twice from Kim Scott, the mother of his daughter Hailie, Eminem said he’s been on a few dates, but “nothing’s panned out in a way I wanted to make public.”

Asked how he meets potential dates, Emimem mentioned Tinder — and popular gay dating app Grindr.

Here’s the full exchange:

Interviewer: When you were dating, how’d you meet people? Tinder?

Eminem: I mean, yeah.

I: Are you being serious?

E: Yeah, Tinder.

I: Really?

E: [Laughs] And Grindr. I also used to go to strip clubs.

From there, the conversation turned to other topics, the interviewer apparently missing the scoop Eminem had just delivered him. It was left to fans to ask: Was Eminem joking, or does the rapper — who’s courted controversy for his use of homophobic language in the past — date dudes?

The internet exploded with questions, but ultimately the spotlight turned to the interviewer, who clearly didn’t follow up with Eminem about his Grindr comment. The interviewer was doing a piece on the growth of Eminem no less.

The interview with Vulture played out quite similar to a scene in the movie ‘The Interview’ starring James Franco, where Eminem is being interviewed and comes out as gay.

“I’m kind of shocked people haven’t figured it out yet,” he says in the fictional interview. “I’ve kind of been playing gay peekaboo. I’ve been leaving a breadcrumb trail of gayness.”
