Teabagging Eminem

Jun. 1, 2009by: Omar Aviles

Update: Yes, it was staged.

By now, if you haven't seen the infamous teabagging of Eminem by an angel winged Sacha Baron Cohen in character as spectacularly gay fashion reporter Bruno at last night's MTV Movie Awards then you've certainly heard about it. And on the off chance that some of you haven't actually seen it, MTV recently posted the clip. Whether or not Eminem is in on the joke, it still doesn't change the fact that he had Cohen's twig and berries dangerously close to his face. Yikes.

Extra Tidbit: What do you guys think? Scripted? Or not scripted?

scripted definitely and the acting on both parts was far better than any of the scripted reality on MTV

I honestly dont know...it is a GREAT publicity stunt for both Cohens movie and Eminems new album. Hard to say.

Scripted. Em is too much of a homophobe to let that pass, definitely scripted

D&G Hello!!!

Dude, he was totally in on it, because if he wasn't one of those big a$$ brothers that was him would have capped Bruno.

Not scripted, he seems really pissed. The only funny thing about the show (what is more correct than insulting an arrogant rapper). Well, the Jim Carrey speech was funny as well ..

Pretty funny, but I don't see anything on that website about it being staged.

I can believe that Eminem agreed to be part of a prank, but I can't believe he knew the full details. Because not even a normal, open-minded guy is gonna allow another guy to teabag him on national television. Let alone Eminem who seems to spend a decent amount of his life running around trying to prove he has credibility.

There was absolutely nothing funny about it whatsoever. Looked like something a ten year old would do and someone even younger would think is funny. I'm not even a fan of Eminem's music, but I just found it to be extraordinarily juvenile.

From what I read it was stages to have Cohen land on him but Eminem didn't know that he would be wearing a thong and have his bare ass in his face.

very bad show

It was a bad show last night. very bad host and jokes. Nothing was funny. Kristen Stewart needs to go back to school and focus on her education. She cannot even hold on to something.

Eminem scene was bad. It was bad.

I dunno man... from "the envelope":

"And can it be another coincidence that a camera just so happened to be positioned in the aisle to catch sight of Eminem stomping out?

Prior to the awards show, producer Mark Burnett hinted to Hollyscoop.com about the rapper's appearance at the event: "Eminem It's epic tonight! It's epic!" Since Eminem's music performance clearly wasn't so epic, Burnett had to be referring to something else."

Guys, really? There is NO WAY that MTV would piss off

It's pretty entertaining one way or the other. My initial reaction was that Eminem wasn't in on it. Or at least in on the exact nature of it. He was kinda muffled (and censored) so it's hard to say how well he was mic'd up, if he indeed was. I could hear him, but that's about it.

IN ON IT FO SHO....

Of course he knew about it....first like i read earlier, he isnt that good of an actor, but anyone could act pissed off. The main thing no one really thinks about though, is he had a MIC on. you can hear him when talks. i seriously doubt every person in the audience is MICed up. He has one on b/c he was participating in the little stunt.

Scripted, but funny as hell!!! The one camera zooms right in on Eminem even before you can tell Bruno would have landed on him. Still one of the funniest things ever!

I think he was in on it. As Jalexander99 said, why else would he be sitting where he was? And as for Em's acting skills, one of the easier emotions to convey is being pissed off. Even I could do that.

What a dipshit

First off, those guys were not his bodygaurds. everyone keeps saying that, they are D12, Eminem's detroit buddies. So that's why they didn't just beat the shit out of ole Bruno. But, Eminem is a pussy. This guy make a living off of embarrassing celebs and when its turned on him he throws a hissy fit. He's like those friends that spend all night teasing everyone and then when someone snaps back they cry and go home.

im surprised eminem shows up to these things, im talking about his earlier beef with triumph the insult comic dog. This is funny though. You think this could be edited into the movie?

I'm not sure what exactly is going on here. Eminem seemed pretty pissed off about the whole thing but then again, why would he sit there the whole time and let that whole thing just happen? And Eminem's 'posse' weren't exactly gentle removing and thowing around Cohen. I think it would have looked worse if he wan't suspended by those cables!

Obviously Scripted...

...and Eminem was definitely NOT in on the joke. I saw "8 Mile" and Eminem is an okay actor at best. What we were made privy to last night was genuine pissed off. In response to the notion that had he not been in on the joke his bodyguards would have "pummeled" him, they were on national TV. They couldn't have even if they wanted to.

Interested to see if Eminem comes back next year.

partly staged

i think cohen's people asked eminem if he would be part of a bruno gag. eminem said sure (he looks like he's in on it at first, and why else would he be mic'd up) but didnt know it was going to involve a man's bare ass in his face (which is why he looks truly pissed)

good script...

obviously scripted, just like pam andersons bit in borat...lets be honest, if eminem really didnt know about that, his bodyguards slash posse would have pummelled cohen to pieces. glad he can take a joke especially of this nature, i actually respect him a little for the first time.
