If you’re single, take comfort in the knowledge that you’re definitely not the only one struggling to find love. In a recent interview with Vulture, Eminem, who has an estimate net worth of $190 million, admitted that he’s had trouble finding love since divorcing his wife in 2001.
“It’s tough. Since my divorce I’ve had a few dates and nothing’s panned out in a way that I wanted to make it public. Dating’s just not where I’m at lately,” he said. When the reporter asked whether or not he uses Tinder, he said, “I mean, yeah,” and when the author asked if he was being serious, he said, “Yeah, Tinder.” The fact that, afterwards, he followed up by saying, “And Grindr. I also used to go to strip clubs,” set the Internet alight because it meant that either he was A) admitting he was gay or B) making a joke at the expense of gay people (more likely the latter than the former).
But, either way, it seems like some lucky Tinder users could someday find themselves matching the the 45-year-old rapper. And while many celebrities probably use Tinder Select, the super-exclusive online dating app open only to the rich and famous, some prefer mingling with the regular folk.

Shortly after her 2014 split from John Mayer, Katy Perry admitted that she was single and “really deep on Tinder so I don’t have a whole lot of time.” Since the pop star is single once again after breaking things off with her year-long boyfriend, Orlando Bloom, chances are she might be taking another deep dive on the site.

In 2014, fresh from splitting up with her cheating boyfriend, Britney made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where the host presented her with her brand-new Tinder profile.
