Eminem Wow

I don't watch MTV. But did you see Bruno embarrass Eminem at the movie awards? He stormed out. I think this is great. Eminem makes fun of all these famous people only to have Borat's jock in his mouth. It's kind of ironic to see Eminem get punked in front of the very celebrities that he talks **** about.

When they say it was staged, I don't think Eminem was in on it.

Please. Of course he was in on it.

If a naked man was being lowered onto your face at 3 MPH you would wait til he landed on you before you moved?

And MTV would never do that to Eminem anyway.

Maybe. I don't know. I don't really see Eminem agreeing to that. Maybe I'm wrong.

bruno's bit was staged. eminem throwing a hissy fit wasn't. he and his entourage clearly were not in on the joke.

I just watched it and read their faces... looks staged/acted to me. Good prank though.

That was most certainly staged. And eminem was most certainly not in on it...

There's just no gracious way of walking out of that one... haha

I had the exact same thought. There's no way he could have been lowered that slowly and end up in that position unless Eminem were in on it . It would have been too easy to move his shoulders or something to avoid THAT position. Plus it seemed as though you could hear Marshal talking at points where he clearly would have had to had a mic on ...

oh yeah.....

and doesn't mr eminem have a new album out right this very minute?
with the way the industry is hurting having a man's balls in your face to get a little publicity must have not seemed like such a bad idea .. at least to some.
the record industry really is tough.

'cool/tough guys' don't move. they have other people move for them, as per the vid.

eminem reacted exactly consistent with who he is and how he always acts.

mtv just wants drama/ratings. why does anyone think they care about punking eminem?

Eminem wouldn't have just "pushed" him out of the way... And you can see his boys laughing at the whole thing... Wow to the people who thought that was real...

god im sick of Eminem. All he does (knows) is attacking others for anything with a smurfy voice. I guess now its time to make a rapsong titled 'The day I ran home and cried a little'.

I don't smell enough condescending tone in your post. I think you need to dial it up a bit.

Cohen's whole act is that whoever he pranks is NOT in on it. There are pending court cases from people that he pranked to prove that. Just a thought.

You don't know what really happened, and neither do I. But there's no need to be a dick. Just a thought.

Definitely staged. They new exactly where the Eminem was sitting, for one thing.

Eminem strikes me as the type that has a sense of humor, and would be willing to go along with something like this. Of course, his entourage getting a little rough with Cohen, and Eminem's reaction makes it more believable.

It's MTV. Nothing is real on MTV.

It was definitely staged, but I'm not sure Em was in on it. I can't imagine him going for that willingly. Also - the last bit of drop happened kinda quick. Em probably thought that the guy would stop descending before being on top of him with his crotch in Em's face.

Agreed thumbsup

There's no way eminem would agree to have some dude's bare ass land on his face for the amusement of an entire arena. How someone would read eminem's reaction as being part of the act its beyond me...

he won't sell any more records by having someone humiliating him on national tv. hats off to 'bruno' for pulling that off! (i'm an eminem fan btw) - they must have known in advance where he was sitting...

Regardless of who was in on it, I just didn't find it very funny at all, or at least I didn't find myself laughing at the bit. IMO it's just MTV reaching for straws. I'm kind of confused as to why there's an MTV music awards show at all considering I havn't seen a music video on MTV in years. At least with my cable we have MTV and MTV2, neither of 'em show videos.

Right now MTV is showing "Exposed" and MTV2 is showing "HS Stories".

MTV is more on par with FOX these days IMO.
