The 'Blow Me (One Last Kiss)' star tells Capital that she secured the rapper on her record after appearing on his last LP.

Pink has confessed that she managed to get Eminem on board for her new album 'The Truth About Love' as a swap deal for her duet on his song 'Won't Back Down'.

The 'Funhouse' star told Capital FM that the artists agreed to their collaborations over the phone in a "friendship" deal and she is a big supporter of the 'Stan' star.

"He asked me to be on his last record, 'Won't Back Down' [was] the song we did and I just said OK I'll do you – you gotta do me," she admitted. "It was like an over the phone friendship deal – and then he was on mine [album]. I'm a super fan."

The US star managed to secure Eminem on her new track 'Here Comes The Weekend' – which leaked online this week.

She also admitted that the two spoke over the phone during the progress of the track but did not meet up together in the studio to record the song. 

Pink's new album also features Fun lead singer Nate Ruess and Lily Rose Cooper  - who she also revealed recently that she is a "super fan" of.
