Eminem Serves Vegan Mom's Spaghetti at Coachella

The rapper hosted a pop-up eatery prior to his performance on Sunday featuring the Rabbit—a $15 order of vegan spaghetti and meatballs named after his character in the film 8 Mile.

Rapper Marshall Mathers (known professionally as “Eminem”) sold vegan spaghetti and meatballs before headlining the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival Sunday. The emcee hosted a pop-up stand where he offered “mom’s spaghetti”—named after famous lyrics from his 2002 song “Lose Yourself.” The limited options included “Rabbit” vegan meatballs named after Eminem’s character in 2002 biographical film 8 Mile. This year’s Coachella festival featured several vegan vendors—thanks to culinary director/long-time vegan Nic Adler—including The Herbivorous Butcher, Little Pine, and Sage Plant-Based Bistro & Brewery. Furthermore, several non-vegan companies debuted vegan products at the festival, including Los Angeles chain Afters Ice Cream, which served a vegan version of its “milky buns”—chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two glazed doughnuts.
