Sweet Justice for Eminem at the MTV Movie Awards

Continuing the long and proud tradition of causing a ruckus at the annual MTV Movie Awards, Sacha Baron Cohen managed to steal the show last night, upstaging even the likes of teen heartthrob Robert Pattinson (Twilight).

Playing his Borat-follow-up character, the very European and very gay Bruno, Cohen flew in over the star-studded audience on a high wire dressed as Icarus, complete with giant white wings. In a faked technical malfunction (whimsically riffing on Icarus' fall), Bruno was flipped upside down and then lowered directly into the awaiting lap of Eminem, who, rumor has it, got way more than he bargained for when he signed on to be a party to the stunt ahead of time.


Apparently the producers neglected to mention the wee tiny detail that Cohen would be wearing nothing but an ass-crack-baring white thong under his fringed loin cloth, resulting in Eminem getting a face full of Bruno's junk. In a tantrum-y fit of pique, the rapper stormed off as soon as his nearest neighbors in the audience pulled Bruno off of him.

Bruno, in all his -- well, almost -- glory.

Oh, Eminem. I never did buy into your "I'm not really a homophobe, honest" publicity stunt with Elton John way back when. And watching you further humiliate yourself last night with the sheer gracelessness of your display of homophobic disgust? Yeah. Pretty priceless.

Flying too close to the sun...

of course it was a stunt. but

of course it was a stunt. but the misleading part of this blog is stating "yes it was staged - but not all of it was disclosed to Eminem"

That Huffington post blog doesn't give Eminem's voice saying he knew and he played his part and planned the running off in a huff.

It doesn't say his reaction was planned. It just says Eminem has not commented on it yet.

The guy who wrote the bit

The guy who wrote the bit said it was "completely planned." I read that as including dickwad's reaction.

I wonder if he's just trying

I wonder if he's just trying to smooth things out between them. He might be flashing some money and perks around keep this as is.

I mean come on. Do you really think "dickwad" would agree to have a cum drizzed plum ass in his face?

I find it funny neither men have a comment on the situation. Maybe that man planned it and left the men involved unaware...making the reactions REAL. And making the stunt life like.

anyway...I think Eminem deserves a clap for being a good sport...

Rover - I'm becoming more

Rover - I'm becoming more cynical about celebritydom by the day ... Eminem and Jay-Z had a concert after this and all the celebs were there ... They Twitter-ed from it and raved about Eminem's awesomeness ...

Probably the reason they never mentioned this award incident on Twitter, is because they all had free tickets to go to this performance.

FYI - Samantha Ronson & Perez Hilton are tweeting each other Shock

I only saw clips of this event. I'll see the video on here later.

If Eminem didn't know the full detail - and they banked on his REAL reactions...I have to say that's wrong.

I wonder how many dykes would love a huge naked straight man with junk in their face...done on purpose knowing how you'd react.

Someone who has a phobia will react when placed in a situation without knowning or control. I'd be pissed if someone did that on purpose knowing how I felt.

from afar it's more ok and one is able to control...but surrounding someone that close without any control...invading a personal space like that...

and for kicks?

Sorry Eminem. I would react just you did. It's not funny.

This is beyond about homophobia. Sacha and those knowing prior to - crossed a personal line.

I thought we want to stop homophobia...not fuel the flame!!

I can't stand either of the

I can't stand either of the douches in question, but - bad gay that I am - I would've said "get this motherfucker off me" and stormed out, too. I think the whole Bruno thing is incredibly homophobic and not at all funny. SBC is on my list of supposedly funny guys that I can't even look at, let alone watch a movie of. I don't go for the sophomoric frat boy bodily function jokes. I prefer more sophisticated humor.

Won't you be my neighbor? @theKELword

But this is what you get Eminem, if you call Samantha Ronson and Ellen Degeneres "a two" (his latest video). Evil Laughing out loud :lol: Laughing out loud :lol:

I don't particularly like

I don't particularly like Sacha, don't find him funny at all really but Eminem- You're an asshole! I'm sorry but "Get this M--F--er off me." is completely uncalled for. His friends' reactions are also too extreme, they act like a bunch of high school jocks picking on the nerdy kid.

Julia, I am with you, I never bought his "I'm not a homophobe" act with Elton John either. I don't have to worry about deleting any of his music since I never liked that either.

I must be a bad gay.

I must be a bad gay. Although, I like Sacha Baron Cohen, I didn't think that stunt was very funny. And I'm not taking Emimem's song, "Lose Yourself," off of my Top 25 Most Played list on iTunes.

I'm with you, Minnie. As long as he is able to do the genius things that he does with the spoken word I will be a fan. And until he openly bashes a gay, (like funding a campaign to take away our rights or participating in violent acts against us or volunteering to perform an at some antigay function), I will not be dismissing his collaborations within in our community as publicity stunts. I find SBC's Bruno character kind of offensive but the absurdity of him is entertaining. Just as some of the things that come out of Eminem's mouth are pretty offensive but still entertaining.
