No surprise here. The controversial Eminem/Bruno stunt at this weekend’s MTV Movie Awards was completely staged and rehearsed.
“Yes, the Bruno/Eminem incident was staged,” writes Scott Aukerman, Andy Samberg’s head writer on the MTV Movie Awards. “That’s all anyone wants to talk about, so let’s get it out of the way.”
And yes, Eminem did know Sacha Baron Cohen’s ass was going to be in his face. “They rehearsed it at dress and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show then.”
As if that wasn’t obvious. But props to MTV and Em for fooling millions while pulling in the best ratings in five years.
