Eminem Talks To RapRadar About MTV Stunt & Robbery Rumors

Congrats to YN & B. Dot for the big exclusive.

Three days ago at the MTV Movie Awards, Sacha Baron Cohen caused a firestorm as “Bruno” when he landed ass first on Eminem. Many speculated for the days whether the stunt was staged or real, with everyone speaking except the man himself. Breaking his silence, Em spoke exclusively to Rap Radar about the entire “ordeal”.

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

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.

There is a report today that your hotel room was robbed and thieves got 60K and your laptop while you were at ceremony. Is that true and if so what would someone find on your computer?

The only thing was that I lost a Nike watch that we were looking for. The rest it is made-up like half the other stuff out there.

How do you think the show with Jay-Z went and how did it feel performing “Renegade” again?

I love performing with Jay. It’s the third time we’ve done the song together live and it’s always fun. It was an honor to share the stage with him again and to work with his band.

    F&L is probably my favorite album from a new kid, but I KNOW lupe can make a better one.

    The Cool & F&L both are great IMO, but I think Lu is going to surpass them both with Lasers.

    Our same Amish friend who avoided the Harrison Ford treatment on Tuesday night upon conveying to us information being reported by Comcast SportsNet regarding the possibility of a new contract for Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb now advises us of a new report from CSN regarding the status of running back Brian Westbrook.

    Per the report (and we’ll put up a link as soon as one is available), Westbrook is out with a high ankle sprain.

    How long? How about until the start of the regular season.

    LOL

    but false.

    I can’t argue that most of them would be based on opinion, but there is no way that the mediocrity of AG & KC could be better than any of Lu’s albums.

    Those albums are good, but not up to the caliber of greatness that his other albums & Lu’s albums are at.
