Eminem during his unaired interview on The Jonathan Ross Show.
(a fan in the audience described the interview)
"Whilst he was waiting to perform Em spoke to the audience through the mic just saying random shit to make everyone laugh.
The producers kept delaying him so that they could re-film a few lines again…
So Eminem goes: “This is why I fucking hate doing TV shows.”
Producer: “Can you move one moment, please. We need to re-film something.”
Eminem: “Nah, I’m good here thanks.” (Em move 5 secs later)
"Eminem just basically messed around, cracked jokes and made people laugh for 5 mins."
"He done that thing where he keeps staring blank into the camera, then he says, ‘I think that camera’s got a problem with me.’
Eminem looks straight in the camera and says, ‘You got a fucking problem with me?’
JR: We should edit that and put it at the start of the show.
Eminem keeps staring into the camera. ‘Why is that camera looking at me? Stop looking at me… I’m not even joking now, get that fucking camera out of my face now!’
*Audience goes awkwardly silent*
Eminem: Nah, I’m only joking.”
"JR asked Eminem why he still finds TV interviews scary as battling in the underground rap scene would of been a lot more scarier. Eminem replied: ‘I just rap. That’s all I do. Just rap.’"
"Jonathan Ross asked why he decided to dye his hair blonde again.
Eminem replied: ‘I didn’t, I just woke up one morning and it was like this.’
Jonathan Ross: The first time you dyed your hair you didn’t know that you had done it…
(Eminem didn’t reply.)”
"Jonathan Ross: You’re 41, how does a mature guy still keep fresh when a lot of young rappers are on the scene?
Eminem: ‘Yo, you can call me a lot of things but definitely no one can call me mature!’”
"Jonathan Ross: What made you decide to change direction & go back to your older style of music? Is it because you wanted to improve on your other album?
Eminem: What, you saying my last album was shit?
Jonathan Ross: No, not at all, last time you was here you told me you wasn’t fully happy with the Relapse album.
Eminem: Oh yeah. Nah, I was happy with it at first, but then I changed my mind after.”
"A girl in the audience shouts out ‘I love you Eminem.’
Another girl then shouts out ‘I love you too!’
Eminem in response to the second girl:
*Points to the first girl*
"Yeah, but do you love me as much as that girl?"
"Jonathan Ross: What do you do when you have a day off from the studio? How do you relax?
Eminem: You really want me to say what I do to relax?”
"JR: You’re the most successful rapper of all time and the most famous person in music whether you like it or not. How do you feel about that?
Eminem: I don’t think about none of that, I’m just a rapper.”
"Jonathan Ross: Do you write most days?
Eminem: I write rhymes everyday to keep my mind sharp. Even if it’s a really shit one that I throw away after, just to keep my mind busy.”
