It was a gag folks!
Just in case you were losing sleep over whether or not Eminem was in on the joke at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, he's gone on record to www.rapradar.com about the incident. We're talking about the stunt where Sacha Baron Cohen, after swinging across the audience on a wire, landed face first in the rapper's lap, with his naked rear conveniently cradling Eminem's face.
When asked about it being staged, Eminem told the site that he was a big fan of Cohen and agreed to go along with the gag. The rapper said that they "pulled this off better than we rehearsed it."
So what about storming out of the auditorium? Eminem tells rapradar.com that he went back to his hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about 3 hours. Especially after seeing it on air.
