Rapper Eminem attends The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards held at Staples Center on February 13, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

"Rap God" rapper Eminem is set to headline Reading and Leeds Festival 2017. One of the performers joining him during the event is "Gossip Girl" alum Taylor Momsen and her band The Pretty Reckless.

Momsen was recently interviewed by Meltdown of the WRIF radio station in Detroit, Michigan, the hometown of Eminem. During the interview, the "Gossip Girl" alum admitted that she is a fan of the Detroit rapper.

For Momsen, Eminem is an amazing rapper. She even went on to describe him as "a genius in his own right."

As a fan of Eminem, Momsen is willing to record a collaboration song with the Detroit rapper. The frontwoman of The Pretty Reckless just wants the circumstance and the song to be "natural and organic and worked out in an actual artistic way."

Fans of Eminem are still eager to know the release date of his upcoming ninth studio album. His eighth and most recent album "The Marshall Mathers LP 2" was released in 2013.

On the other hand, The Pretty Reckless released its most recent studio album on Oct. 21, 2016. Titled "Who You Selling For," the album is the band's third studio album and was produced by Kato Khandwala, the band's longtime collaborator.

Pretty Reckless will continue to tour before 2018 in support of "Who You Selling For." Aside from Reading and Leeds Festival 2017, the band will perform in several festival shows including Carolina Rebellion, Rocklahoma, and Rock on the Range.   

This is the third time Eminem is headlining Reading and Leeds Festival and it is "beyond exciting," NME quoted him Festival Republic CEO Melvin Benn as saying. Joining the "Rap God" rapper and the The Pretty Reckless frontwoman in the festival on Aug. 26-27 are Korn, Major Lazer, Flume, Andy C, While She Sleeps, Tom Misch, Sundara Karma, Moose Blood and Migos, among others.
