Fresh off his MTV Movie Awards performance of chart-topping single “The Monster” with Rihanna, Eminem has hinted that he’s got something major in the works for Texas, a state that prides itself on everything being bigger and, thus, arguably better within its border. The Marshall Mathers LP 2 MC posted the above pic on Instagram the other day, and it depicts him as a Wild West-era cowboy roaming the prairie on his trusty steed. Em in chaps with his trademark scowl perched underneath a wide-brimmed hat make for a pretty hilarious picture, no?
“Texas – ‘Square Dance’ with me! Announcement coming 4/22,” Eminem wrote on Instagram when posting the shot. Our guess — and we’ve been wrong before — is that he’s going to be headlining this fall’s Austin City Limits fest at Zilker Park. Last year the announcement for ACL’s 2013 lineup came in early May, so ’tis the season for this type of revelation. Also, Em will already be in full festival mode by that point, as he’s headlining Lollapalooza in early August, just ahead of his trio of Monster Tour dates with Rihanna. More »
