Strange Eminem interview gets 1 million hits
Viral clip of rapper raises online eyebrows
The rapper appeared dazed on-set and stated he was "glad to be done" with his new album.
Questions have been raised across social networking sites regarding Marshall Mathers' seemingly 'spaced-out' appearance on ESPN after several versions of the interview have been viewed on YouTube over 1 million times in total.
The rapper was interviewed at halftime during the Notre Dame vs. Michigan game to preview the video for his new single, "Berzerk," and to discuss his new album, the 'Marshall Mathers' LP 2'.
The interview begins with Mathers sported a glazed look on set, leaning forward with his mouth open. He recovers somewhat when directly questioned, stating 'live TV freaks me out a little bit... I'm sorry, what was the question?"
When asked what he is most excited about in relation to his new album, the rapper replies "nothing". He then clarifies his answer with "I mean, I think I'll be most excited to be done with it".
The rest of the interview passes without incident although the rapper appears to stumble over his answers at times.
When the conversation moves from his new album to A self-proclaimed "die-hard Lions fan", Mathers refuses to predict the score in case he "jinxes it".
