Eminem & Bruno incident was staged?
Many of you may have seen or heard about the incident at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, involving Sacha Baron Cohen in his “Bruno” character and Eminem.
If not, take a peek at this video:
There has been speculation that the incident was staged, even though Eminem did not look like he was playing around.
Yesterday the head writer for the show confirmed that the incident was indeed planned!
“Yes, the Eminem-Bruno incident was staged,” MTV Awards head writer Scott Aukerman says on his blog. “They rehearsed it at dress (rehearsal) and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show.”
Apparently Paris Hilton was the first choice for the stunt, but she declined.
Neither Sacha nor Eminem have spoken on this yet, and Scott’s post has since been removed from his blog.
If indeed he did agree to this participate, does Eminem lose cool points for this?
