The big deal at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards was Eminem walking out after Bruno’s be-thonged ass ended up in his face. Since then, everyone’s been like, “Was it staged? I think it was staged!” “No way! Eminem is a humorless dick!” Et cetera. The head writer for the show admitted on his blog that it was staged, but then he removed the post, and basically this story has gone on for way longer than it merits. Which brings us to this interview from Rap Radar:
RR: Can you clear up the Bruno stunt at the MTV Awards? Was it staged or planned?
Eminem: Sacha called me when we were in Europe and he had an idea to do something outrageous at the Movie Awards. I’m a big fan of his work so I agreed to get involved with the gag.
If it wasn’t planned the way you agreed to, do you hold MTV or Sacha responsible and will you take any kind of action?
I’m thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it. It had so many people going “nuts” so to speak. Everyone was blowing me up about it.
After you left the ceremony, where did you go?
After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about 3 hours. Especially after I saw it on air.
So there we go. Mystery solved… or is it? MAYBE Eminem is just saying he was in on the joke to save face!!! Will we ever get to the bottom of this????????? We should ask Sacha Baron Cohen. Perhaps we’ll get a straight answer from the British comedian pretending to be a gay Austrian model.
