Eminem’s Awkward Appearance During Michigan-Notre Dame Game

Well that was weird. The Real Slim Shady dropped in to the ESPN broadcast booth on Sept. 7 to promote his new music video for “Berzerk,” but all anyone could focus on was how odd he was acting! Watch the video below and tell us what you think!

Eminem is from Detroit, Michigan, so obviously his people and the people of ESPN saw a perfect opportunity to get together and let him promote his new music video, “Berzerk,” during the Michigan-Notre Dame college football game. Only it didn’t quite go as smoothly as anyone hoped.

Eminem Gets Awkward On ESPN

While ESPN broadcasters Brent Musberger and Kirk Herbstreit introduced Em (or Marshall Mathers, as they called him), he just stared aimlessly into the distance. What was he looking at that had him so tranced out? We may never know.

Surprisingly, the interview only got more awkward from there! After they showed a clip of the new “Berzerk” music video, Eminem explained his odd behavior: “Sorry. Live TV. Live TV freaks me out a little bit.” Which is sort of strange considering Eminem has been a superstar for about 15 years now, but at least he has an explanation.

The broadcast went to a break at that point, but Eminem was only able to compose himself a little bit by the time the game came back on (and by that we mean he was just no longer awkwardly gazing into the abyss). Kirk tried to start a conversation: “Album’s coming out in November, what are you most excited about with this new album?”

“Um, nothing,” Eminem answered. Okay, moving on!

Eminem: ‘I’m Really Uncomfortable Right Now’

It finally looked as though the interview would end on a good note, as Marshall let go of his nerves and told Brent that he was a legendary sports broadcaster. Nice. But when Brent responded by saying, “You, my friend, are the legend,” it put us right back where we started.

“I’m really uncomfortable right now,” Eminem bluntly stated.

Wow. Eminem may be completely in control when he’s rapping, but everyone should probably think twice before pairing him up with a couple of sports geeks again.

Maybe he has social axiety disorder in certain situations. Even though he is a star, the setting and live tv could have sparked it off. Could be something as simple as a drop in blood sugar or lack of sleep. Or drugs..

Hahaha this is ridiculous, I can’t believe this article was even published. It is clearly a joke, you don’t even need to know anything about Eminem, which the writer clearly doesn’t, to know its not serious. It’s a hilarious interview, that’s all that should be written about it. All you’re doing is stirring up ridiculous talk that he relapsed, shameless.

So whoever wrote this is an absolute moron. Clearly he was just being his usual nonchalant self. He wasn’t spaced out, he was playing around. He always acts like his record releases are just whatever and he’s obviously on the ball and quite comfortable since he was able to answer the sports related questions with ease. Stop writing rubbish and either get better at understanding playfulness and sarcasm or leave journalism and become something that requires a little less brain power and people skills.

@Andrew Gruttadaro. You’re an idiot; the only thing awkward is your article. It just admits that you either don’t know who Eminem is or never got his humor.
