G-Eazy has admitted that when he met Leonardo DiCaprio backstage at the Oscars, he almost fainted.

The 'Me, Myself & I' hitmaker is a huge fan of the 43-year-old actor and couldn't believe it when the 'Titanic' star admitted he was an admirer of the rapper. 

In an interview with 'Entertainment Tonight', he said: "He's just the cleanest cat to ever live.

"It was crazy ... we were at an Oscars party and I was luckily tipsy enough to not be so nervous, and I saw him walk past me and I was like, 'Woah!' 

"And I just tapped him and I talked to him and he was like, 'Yo, you're dope, kid! You're a rockstar. I like you,' and I think I fainted.

"You forget that everybody is a human.

"Being mutual fans of each other is really crazy. You forget that they're people too. They enjoy music just like we do."
