We don't want to sound dramatic, but we'd totally understand if you "Lose Yourself" over Eminem's new facial hair.
As admirers of the Grammy winner know, Eminem is a man with a look that doesn't change very often.
There are the short buzz cuts, baggy clothes and occasional beanies. But when stepping out for The Defiant Ones premiere at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, some music fans had one question: Is that Eminem?
Yes, friends. The man behind hit tracks like "Not Afraid," "Rap God" and "The Real Slim Shady" now has a beard and fans can't get enough.
So what made Eminem make such a special appearance? In addition to supporting The Defiant Ones, it appears the rapper wanted to support his longtime collaborator Dr. Dre.
According to Variety, who attended the premiere, Eminem avoided the red carpet but managed to sit behind his friend during the celebration.
For those hoping to catch Eminem in concert this summer, the rapper has a couple special U.K. events on his calendar for August including the Leeds Festival. Will the beard still be alive and well then? Stay tuned!
The Defiant Ones premieres July 9 only on HBO.
