Prepare to lose yourself in spaghetti.
Eminem (the artist and actor whose real name is Marshall Bruce Mathers III), has opened a Mom's spaghetti pop-up restaurant at this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. 

Eminem has a Mom's Spaghetti pop-up restaurant at Coachella

The name, of course, is a reference to the famous line in his 2002 song "Lose Yourself." It goes: "His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy. There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti." And fans everywhere have been singing about soiled sweaters and Eminem's mom's spaghetti ever since. 
The booth is located in general admission near the Do L  ab tent.
The pop-up window is serving spaghetti, only instead of coming from Eminem’s mom's kitchen, it’s made by a local commissary kitchen. 
You can get a take-out container of spaghetti ($9), add meatballs ($12) or get a spaghetti sandwich ($11), which is basically three forkfuls of pasta and a couple rounds of mozzarella between slices of garlic bread. 
The spaghetti is a cross between something you might have had at your high school cafeteria, and a dish your mom actually may have served when you were a kid. And there’s something nostalgic about the way the noodles are the opposite of al dente. 
Most of the fans waiting in line at the booth made the Eminem connection as soon as they saw the name, written in bright red neon. 
“I just assumed it was related to him because we’d never heard ‘Mom’s spaghetti’ anywhere else,” said GiGi Garcia, a 23-year-old from San Diego. “I want to know if it’s just this year because he’s playing, or if they will be here next year too. I bet the spaghetti is good.” 
“It’s a brilliant name for a spaghetti restaurant,” said Megan Black, a 22-year-old from Toronto. “We were drawn to it because of the name.”
No word yet on whether Eminem will be eating spaghetti before his Coachella-closing set on Sunday.
