Eminem Had a Joaquin Phoenix Moment on ESPN

Eminem acted pretty weird during a promotional visit to ESPN, where he played a teaser video for his new single, "Berzerk," and spoke to hosts Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit during a halftime segment. After telling the pair that "nothing" especially excited him about his upcoming album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, Eminem stared blankly off screen, seeming both confused and annoyed. "I'll probably be most excited to be done with it," he finally said.

According to its creator, the album is "kind of a revisit to the first Marshall Mathers LP. And that's pretty much all I can probably say about it." Fans of both sports and Eminem can look forward to hearing "Berzerk" throughout the fall, as it will become Saturday Night Football's official song next week — yet another thing the rapper seemed none too excited about.
