Eminem stopped by the ESPN broadcast booth during halftime of last night's Michigan-Notre Dame game, talking with broadcasters Kirk Herbstreit and Brent Musberger and promoting the video for his new single, "Berzerk."

Sort of.

The appearance has gone viral due to the rapper's zoned-out state, as the artist responded to Musberger's first inquiry with: "Sorry, live TV. Live TV freaks me out a little bit. What was the question?"

It only went downhill from there, much to the amused confusion of Herbstreit. Watch now as Eminem stares into the camera, praises Musberger as a legend and generally looks like he'd rather be anywhere else on the planet:

Eminem has released "Berzerk," the first single from his upcoming album, and promises to "take it back to straight hip-hop / and start it from scratch."

Fittingly, the track is something of an old-school anthem.

With a simple beat and gnashing, classic samples (Beastie Boys and Billy Squier's "The Stroke"), Eminem delivers his lyrics with a familiar flow.

The hook? "Life's too short to not go for broke." Indeed.

"Berzerk" is from Eminem's upcoming eighth album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which drops November 5. Take a listen and see what you think:

Eminem may not have been present during last night's MTV Video Music Awards.

But that doesn't mean the rapper didn't make his presence felt on the music scene.

While viewers were watching Miley Cyrus embarrass herself and Lady Gaga receive wigged-out Applause, Eminem was headlining the Leeds Festival in England and then taking to Twitter to tease his upcoming album:

"Guess who's REALLY back? #VMAs," he wrote to followers.

Indeed, The Marshall Mathers LP 2 will be released on November 5, with the first single  ("Berzerk") available to download next week. Watch a teaser for the album now:

Eminem is back with "Survival," a song to be featured on the forthcoming game Call of Duty: Ghosts. That would be noteworthy enough, but his collaborator is adding to the buzz.

Liz Rodrigues, an unfamiliar but luring vocalist, sings the hook:

"This is survival of the fittest / This is do or die."

Liz Rodrigues is a member of the New Royales, an up-and-coming group that has also worked with 50 Cent, Jay Electronica, Slaughterhouse, Pitbull and the Clipse.

Dr. Dre has reportedly  deemed the New Royales "the new crack," and they haven't even put out their first mixtape, Freedom's For the Brave, yet.

How long until the music world gets hooked? And what do you think of Rodrigues' collaboration with Eminem for Call of Duty: Ghosts? Comment below!

In a new documentary titled "How to Make Money Selling Drugs," Eminem opens up about his history of drug abuse, detailing just how low he fell when his substance abuse issues were at their worst.

"My bottom was going to be death," he states in the following excerpt.

The rapper popped 10 to 20 Vicodin pills per day at one point and explained that his first experience with the drug was enlightening.

"[I] didn't feel any pain. It just kind of numbed things."

Eminem's new album will feature Chris Rock, it looks like.

The comedian has finally broken his silence on his rumored trip to the studio with the rap icon, though we're still in the dark about what they're working on.

Rock let the cat out of the bag with this surprising pic:

Eminem, Chris Rock

"Yeah, yeah, but money does that," Chris jokingly said when an interviewer said Eminem looked younger in the photo. "I'm 65, man! [laughs]"

"Money is the best lotion in the world. [What were we doing?] I can't really say. I'm just saying, hey, you know, I've been on, hey, hey, I was on the Kanye record."

"Maybe I'm on the Eminem record. You never know!"

Might the much-rumored new Eminem album be on its way in just over a month?

Rumors now state that Slim Shady will come out with a CD on May 28 and follow it with a string of European tour dates, chatter that echoes what Shady Records President Paul Rosenberg said in February:

"We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He's been working on it for some time... It's safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we're not exactly sure when.

"We've got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we're trying to see what else lines up."

Eminem, Facebook King. The rapper has that title all to himself after surpassing 60 million "Likes" Wednesday, more than any other living person.

Rihanna and Lady Gaga, who each have huge social media followings of their own, are Liked by about 59.4 million and 53.5 million, respectively.

Despite the fact that fan interaction and writing in first person on Facebook is the #1 way to get shares and Likes, being famous trumps all.

On Eminem's Facebook page, the 39-year-old generally posts links to YouTube videos of his music and interviews, with little or no comment.

According to AppData, Eminem is close to nabbing more than 26,000 "Likes" each day, with Rihanna not far behind with 22,000 "Likes" per day.

Rihanna and Gaga's more engaged approach top Eminem in the "talking about this" metric, however, which measures overall activity on a page.

Eminem has 290,896 people talking about him, while Rihanna has 1,016,304 and Lady Gaga has 1,209,588 ... that's a lot of Little Monsters.

When it comes to Twitter, however, Lady Gaga is the undisputed queen with more than 27 million followers. Justin Bieber has nearly 26 million.

P.S. Please Like THG on Facebook and help us catch Eminem! We're only like 59 million behind! Hey, 872,000 isn't too shabby people.

Mitt Romney. Eminem. We never thought those two people would be used in the same THG headline, but one epic music video parody has united them at last.

This amazing mash-up of Mitt Romney quotes and Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady" takes dead aim at the presidential candidate's flip-flopping reputation.

President Barack Obama and Mitt's all-but-dispatched GOP rival, Newt Gingrich, also make cameos in "The Real Mitt Romney," which is a must-see ...

Oxford student Hugh Atkin created the video, combining the Republican candidate's soundbites and the hit song from the rapper's 2001 Marshall Mathers LP.

Obama begins the video in much the same way as Em begins his track: "May I have your attention please. Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?"

"Y'all act like you haven't seen a Mormon before... I'm not concerned with the poor," Mitt says in spliced-together clips from various campaign speeches.

As for that catchy chorus, Romney raps, "I'm Mitt Romney and I'm the real Romney ... All the other Mitt Romneys are just masturbating." Obviously.

In other mashup news, check out Obama singing "Sexy and I Know It"!
