G.O.O.D Music's Big Sean recently discussed sparking widespread buzz across the Internet over his engagement to "Glee" star Naya Rivera and what's the real status with an anticipated Eminem collaboration.
Despite being brief with the Rivera topic, Sean admitted nothing's been recorded yet between him and Slim Shady.
The Hall of Fame rapper, who is engaged to Naya Rivera, wouldn't reveal when he's getting married, but did thank his fans for their support. "Thanks for those good wishes," he said. Over the summer, he hit the studio with his Detroit idol Eminem, but they have yet to record a collaboration. "We were scheduled to record it, but we didn't get to it yet," he said. "I'm sure we'll connect. But they show love, they support. He looked at me and told me, 'I listen to you, I support you.'" (Rap-Up)
Details of the unexpected engagement flooded the Internet in early October.
Naya Rivera is engaged to her boyfriend Big Sean, her rep confirms to JustJared.com! The 26-year-old Glee actress has been dating the 25-year-old rapper for about six months. They made their first appearance together as a couple back in April at a movie premiere. "I had followed him and he sent me a little message like, 'I'm a fan.' I tweeted that I followed him, I was trying to get his attention," Naya previously told Access Hollywood about how she and Sean met. "We went to dinner and the rest is history." Naya and Sean collaborated recently on her debut single "Sorry"! Congratulations to the happy (Just Jared)
Over the summer, Rivera revealed they had their very first date at an Italian restaurant.
"We met a while ago and we went to this little Italian restaurant for our first date," she revealed. "[How long have we been official?] I don't know, you should ask him. [laughs] He's really supportive of the character that I play [on 'Glee']. Everyday when we go out, he sees fans come up [to me] and I tell him stories about people thanking me for playing this character; this helps them come out to their friends and family. He thinks it's so cool." (VIBE Vixen)
Back in June, the Detroit rapper talked about trying to lock studio time in with Eminem.
The G.O.O.D. Music rapper is confident that the collaboration will be one for the history books, but it wasn't only the music that made their recording session a memorable one. "Being in the studio, I just remembered when my mom bought me his [first] album from Costco or something a long-ass time ago, so you could just imagine going from that moment -- being a lil-ass boy -- then fast forwarding 20 years later and being in the studio with him," he explained. "We talked for a few hours before we even worked on music. I was telling him my stories about how we were performing all around downtown Detroit and [it turned out that] he was performing in the same places." (MTV)
