​Elton John Reveals Bizarre Wedding Present From Eminem On 'The Graham Norton Show'

Sometimes people who you wouldn't expect to even like each other turn out to be the best of friends.

Will Ferrell and Mariah Carey, Jay Z and Nick Jonas, I once even saw a dog swimming with a dolphin in a harbour in Ireland (yes, really).

I mean, where did they even meet? What could they possibly have in common?

Anyway, Elton John and Eminem might be even more of a bizarre pairing than that but, according to Elton, they are the best of mates.

The famously flamboyant singer and the angry rapper seem like an unlikely twosome, but Elton was on The Graham Norton Show last night to tell everyone about their friendship, and a pretty fucking hilarious wedding present bought for him by Em.

Eminem has been accused of being homophobic (as well as a whole load of other stuff) over the years because of some of his lyrics, but Elton was quick to set the record straight about that.

Whilst I think it's good that Elton is defending his mate against accusations, what followed was one of the largest overshares in TV history.

"He was accused of being homophobic by so many people because of his lyrics, which I thought was nonsense," said Elton.

"I came out and supported the fact that he isn't [homophobic] and I appeared on the Grammys with him, doing 'Stan', instead of Dido - I was the one who took the 'L' out of Dido.

"We became friends. We've been amazing friends ever since. He's an amazing guy. I interviewed him last week for a magazine.

"When David [Furnish] and I did our civil partnership, I got this package from Eminem. It shows you how homophobic he isn't.

"It had two diamond-encrusted cock rings on velvet cushions. I have to say, they have remained unused."

Right, first thing's first, where do you even get a diamond encrusted cock ring from? Presumably you have to have them made to order? I don't know.

Also, after he has been to all of the trouble to have them made - presumably getting himself blacklisted from all of his local jewellers in the process - it seems a bit sad for them to never even get used.

Anyway, cheers for that, Elton.
