Eminem finally admits MTV Movie Awards ambush was a stunt

June 3, 2009 |  7:29 pm

No big surprise, but Eminem has 'fessed up that his rendezvous with Sacha Baron Cohen's bare butt at the MTV Movie Awards was a rehearsed prank.

"Sacha called me when we were in Europe, and he had an idea to do something outrageous at the movie awards," he told "I'm a big fan of his work, so I agreed to get involved with the gag. 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."

When asked what happened after he stomped out of the Gibson theater, he said, "After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about three hours. Especially after I saw it on air."

Most curious about this latest development is that MTV has published a report on line quoting Eminen's revelation to RapRadar as news. Why doesn't the network that produced the kudofest confess what it already knows?
