Zadie Smith has struck up a "fanship" with Eminem, apparently, as reported in the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph (and there are also reports on Salon and on a blog).

She once told Giovanna Zucconi of Italian journal La Stampa, during a Roman sojourn, that "Eminem is talented and an enormous success".

Not that I, personally, am an Eminem fan. Far from it. But it's interesting that Smith is able to expose such popular tastes.

What's odd, though, is the gap of time between when the original piece appeared in the paper and when Salon picked it up: four years.
