Stunts

Eminem Speaks Out on MTV Gag

The line between televised "reality" and staged events is becoming thinner every day. We learned on Tuesday that Eminem's outrage over Sacha Baron Cohen's Bruno stunt, which left the British comedian's rear end in the rapper's face last weekend's MTV Movie Awards, was faked. Now, the rapper has explained why he played along. Eminem told MTV.com that Baron Cohen called him and suggested the stunt. "I'm a big fan of his work so I agreed to get involved with the gag," he said. "I'm thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it." After having his bodyguards pull the comedian off him, Eminem went back to his hotel and "laughed uncontrollably for about three hours."
