In case you missed the 2009 MTV movie awards, this is what went down (literally): Sacha Baron Cohen — as his fashionista character Brüno — dropped from the rafters of the Gibson Amphitheatre through the help of wires, landing butt-naked on Eminem’s face.
The rapper appeared to be furious and stormed out of the award ceremony with his posse. After a few days, Eminem finally broke the silence on Wednesday (June 3) to RapRadar.com.
“Sacha [Baron Cohen] 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,” he told RapRadar.com. “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.”
As for where he went after leaving the awards ceremony, Eminem explained, “After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about three hours. Especially after I saw it on-air”.
