Put to bed?

Though I’m sure there will be those who want to peg this as damage control.  From the AP:

Eminem says he knew full well what he was about to face at the MTV Movie Awards — including Sacha Baron Cohen’s bare butt.

Enimem told the Web site RapRadar.com that the much-talked about stunt was all rehearsed, right down to Eminem’s mock disgust. Says the rapper: “I’m thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it.”

Eminem says when he left the show, he went back to his hotel and laughed for three hours, including as he watched the playback.

The rapper calls himself a “big fan” of Baron Cohen, who he said approached him about the gag while he was in Europe.

    The stunt was a success. I was fooled!
    But I wasn’t the one with a butt on my face.
    It’s one of those lose-lose situatuon.

    I don’t even understand why people discuss it. MTV are such cowards they’d never do that upon a star.

    Point taken Kris- but the joke is on Eminem not us. He still looks really stupid,almost like the heel in a wrestling match. Remember the crowd always roots for the hero.
    If an Awards show were produced in HELL it would be carried live on MTV. For the record I think there annual movie award show is wildy entertaining and a great watch. Do they accomplish much-NO, but it is a fun watch!
