Eminem - Eminem freaked out by live TV

Eminem freaked out during an interview on Saturday night (07.09.13).

The 'Not Afraid' hitmaker looked dazed and confused as he made a rare live TV appearance on ESPN's 'Saturday Night Football' to share a clip of his new music video 'Berserk' during halftime coverage of the Michigan vs. Notre Dame game.

The rapper was introduced, by hosts Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit, as his real name Marshall Mathers and gazed confusingly into the camera with his mouth open as he swayed in his chair.

After an awkward silence, he then confessed: ''I'm really uncomfortable right now. Live TV freaks me out a little bit.''

The 40-year-old star was asked about his new projects and admitted he isn't particularly looking forward to his return to music.

Asked how long it took to complete the video, he said: ''It's usually like a two day process, sometimes it can go to three. It's a lot of takes, it's a lot of sitting around waiting. It's cool. If the video comes out, I guess it's worth it.''

He also said that ''nothing'' about his upcoming album excites him.

Shrugging his shoulders, he added: ''When it will be out November 5, I'll probably be most excited to be done with it. It's called 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' and it's kind of a revisit to the first 'Marshall Mathers' LP and that's pretty much all I can probably say about it.''

Some stars are more comfortable with live-TV and others are not. He may be very good at singing but may still not like live-TV. Yet there may be other stars who love live-TV because they believe they can use it to promote their image or their work. It varies from person to person. We should not assume that all stars find live-TV very convenient. DbaiG Bolee.com

Eminem acted like a totally normal person. A human. He didn't freak out. He didn't look dazed and confused. He was having fun and being himself. TV personalities and "professional" press are weird. They are caked over in make up. They are perpetually fake friendly. And they are there to sell advertising. They freak US out. Don't take over any more humans please. And Slim Shady... keep keeping it real. Thank you.
