Yep, He Got Me

I am one of what I’m hoping is many that was fooled by the prank that Sacha Baron Cohen played on Eminem at the MTV Awards on Sunday. What looked like a lame attempt to humiliate Em and a subsequent beating to Cohen by Em’s bodyguards and a further subsequent storming out of the awards by Slim Shady himself, was all a big joke it seems….and one that the most exquisite artist on the planet is quite pleased was pulled off brilliantly. From Pop Crunch,

“In an interview with on Wednesday, hip-hop impressario Eminem confirmed what many fans have suspected since Sunday night’s 2009 MTV Movie Awards — he was totally in on the scene-stealing stunt that left a bareback Sacha Baron Cohen half-naked in his lap.

RR: Can you clear up the Bruno stunt at the MTV Awards? Was it staged or planned?

Eminem: Sacha 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.

Was it executed the way you agreed to, and if not, do you hold MTV or Sacha responsible and will you take any kind of action?

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.

After you left the ceremony, where did you go?

After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about 3 hours. Especially after I saw it on air.”

So what can I say? I’m sorry Sacha that I said all those bad things about you. And I’m really sorry for all the really bad things I thought about you. And well, Em, I guess you wanted to see if your fans could take a joke too and it turns out that we can’t. In our defense though, we only got all bent out of shape about it because we love you so much and are sick of people saying crap about you!
