    Pop singer Pink may sing alongside Eminem on the chunky "Won't Back Down" which appears on his chart-topping album Recovery, but the soulful singer admitted she was scared of the rapper all the while admiring him before she got to work with him. Pink says she feared she would have been a lyrical target during the period when Em was dissing pop culture artists through barbs in his lyrics.

    "I think he's one of the most poetic, ballsy, and hilarious people this industry has ever seen," Pink told Spin magazine. Unlike her confectionary, high-calorie but low-substance peers, Pink was never the target of Em's ire in his songs. She also said, "I was always afraid he'd pick me as a target, but he's always been nice to me and finally approached me to be on the album, so I must have done something right."

    Do you dig the Pink/Em duet? It's my fave track on the record.
