Viewers of ESPN's Michigan-Notre Dame halftime show got plenty more than the usual punditry and analysis this past weekend. Detroit native Eminem dropped into the studio to give a sneak preview of his new music video for Berzerk, though things got.err...pretty weird.
Kicking off the interview with one of the strangest, eeriest blankest stares ever, Eminem eventually blurted out, "sorry, live TV freaks me out a little bit," as anchors Kerk Herbstreit and Brent Musburger pressed on. There's a really great bit when Eminem looks at Herbstreit, and apologizes, and Herbstreit just sort of goes, "Nahhh" and laughs a little and has no idea what to say.
Attention turned to Eminem's new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, "What are you most excited about with this new album?," Herbstreit asked. "Nothing" came the reply, with another blank stare.
"...no, it'll be out November 5th. I'll probably be most excited to just be done with it," he eventually added.
Eminem began to come out of his shell a little when chatting about the forthcoming Detroit Lions game, calling himself a "die-hard fan" before.you guessed it.pulling out another blank stare.
Watch the Eminem ESPN interview:
"You're a legend," Eminem told Musberger replied, to which he replied, "You my friend, are the legend."
"I'm really uncomfortable right now," Eminem said in response.
Eminem's new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 has been produced by himself, Rick Rubin, No ID and Dr. Dre.
