Comedian and late-night star Stephen Colbert hosted a show called “Only in Monroe” on the Michigan city’s public access TV channel, in which he interviewed Eminem, the rapper from Detroit, at the 21:55 mark. Watch as he tries to get him to sing along to songs by Detroit-area singer-songwriter Bob Seger and ask the kind of questions that only an elderly person who has never heard of the Grammy-winning recording artist would ask, such as:

“What kind of rap do you do? … Are you more political or are you more booty rhymes? Where do you hope this goes? Is this a career or more of a hobby? Is this just sort of like a thing to do with your buddies on the weekends? It’s a pretty tough business though, do you have a fall back position?”
