Rihanna thinks Eminem is 'one of the most talented poets of our time'

Rihanna has lavished praise on the "poet" Eminem.

The duo have worked together on a number of occasions, producing the 2010 hit 'Love The Way You Lie' and 2013's 'The Monster'.

Speaking in the November issue of Vanity Fair, Eminem said that he would call Rihanna a "friend".

He added: "She’s always been there for me, and I really enjoy working with her. As an artist, we have similar work ethics, so I’ve always been able to relate to her in that sense."

Rihanna responded: "He’s one of my favourite people. He’s got so many layers and he’s such a good person - focused, disciplined.

"I mean you can’t tell me that you have to be in the club when Eminem is legit at home and being a good father and is still one of the most prestigious rappers of our generation. He’s one of the most talented poets of our time.

"It was such a brilliant moment to have him ask me to be part of a record; I felt...anointed, because he thought I was cool enough to be on ['Love the Way You Lie']. But also, the lyrics [about a dysfunctional relationship] were just so true to what I felt and couldn’t say to the world at that time."
