Eminem Admits Stunt With Sacha Baron Cohen at MTV Movie Awards Was Staged

At Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards, Sacha Baron Cohen caused a media frenzy when he landed in a suggestive position on Eminem during an award presentation. Many speculated whether the stunt was staged or real, without confirmation from the rapper himself. In an interview, Eminem spoke exclusively to Rap Radar online about the prank.

“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.”

Eminem also admitted, “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 where he went after storming out of the ceremony he said, “I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about 3 hours. Especially after I saw it on air.”
