Eminem unexcited about new album

Eminem has failed to hype his new album, saying "nothing" excites him about it.

The rapper was in ESPN's commentary booth for the Notre Dame-Michigan American football game when he revealed his feelings about upcoming album, Marshall Mathers II.

When asked by one of the commentators what excited him most about the album, he replied: "Um, nothing. No, when it'll be out November 5, I'll probably be most excited to be done with it. It's called Marshall Mathers II. It's kind of a revisit to the first Marshall Mathers LP and um, that's pretty much all I can probably say about it, but...," he trailed off, shrugging.

Eminem then refused to make a prediction on an upcoming game in case he "jinxed" it, but went on to tell veteran commentator Brent Musburger that he thought he was a legend - although he pointed out to the co-commentator that while he was good, he wasn't in the same league as Brent.

Brent said: "You're the legend - 13 Grammys, first rap song to win an Academy Award for original score, you've sold 100 million records worldwide - you, my friend, are the legend."

Eminem ended the interview by replying: "I'm really uncomfortable right now."
