Eminem throws shade in 'Saturday Night Live' promos

Slim Shady's back — and he's throwing some serious shade. In two new promos for "Saturday Night Live," Eminem, who is this week's musical guest, glowers angrily as a very bubbly Kerry Washington gets super excited for her hosting gig.

The only (minor) break in his sour demeanor? When "Scandal" star Washington tells the camera that after the show, everyone's going out for cupcakes, which was apparently the rapper's idea.

"I love cupcakes," he says quietly, still with a frown on his face.

Keeping up the attitude, the rapper even told his fans on Twitter to not laugh at the promos.



Expect to hear some of Eminem's new tunes on the comedy show, as the rapper is releasing his eighth album, "The Marshall Mathers LP 2," on Nov. 5.

"Saturday Night Live" airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
