The 40-year-old rapper started his ESPN halftime show interview starring dumbly off-camera while Brent Musburger introduced the segment and Kirk Herbstreit laughed uneasily at his side.
"Sorry, live TV freaks me out a little bit," the Michigan native confessed after about 30 seconds of blank staring.
The three men went on to discuss the Detroit Lions -- Eminem said he's a "die-hard fan" -- and his upcoming album, "The Marshall Mathers LP 2."
Herbstreit asked what excited him most about his new project, Eminem hit back, "Nothing."
"No, it'll be out November 5th. I'll probably be most excited to just be done with it," the rapper said.
"You're a legend," Eminem later told Musburger, a veteran sportscaster.
"You my friend, are the legend," Musburger replied.
"I'm really uncomfortable right now," Eminem said.
