During a recent press junket in Hong Kong Moby commented: "I found myself respecting him for doing that." He even said he’d miss the hip hop star if he recent rumours were true that Eminem was set to retire.

"Honestly, if he retired, I think the world of music would be a poorer place. He's a really fascinating public figure. I'd much rather have public figure musicians like Eminem because at least he's exciting."

Moby also revealed that he was kind of flattered by Eminem’s spoof of him in recent videos, he said: "To have the most successful musician in the world dress up like you in a video and sing about you in a song - it was honestly some of the best publicity I've ever had"
