Bruno-gate: All Scripted!
After 36 hours’ of speculation, the Bruno-bum-on-Eminem’s-mush scandal has been declared a full-on, in-yer-face STUNT.
One of the peeps who devised the bootylicious spectacle, MTV script writer Scott Aukerman, wrote on his blog: “Yes, the Eminem-Bruno incident was staged. They rehearsed it at dress rehearsal and yes, it went as far as it did on the live show.”
As for Eminem missing the show because he’d stomped out of the Gibson Amphitheatre, well, there was nothing particularly amiss there either.
MTV insiders claim many of the biggest names at the glam event showed up, did their posing and pap-baiting on the red carpet, then left again to watch the show from the comfort of their million dollar apartments/hotel rooms.
So Eminem knew all along that Sacha Baron Cohen’s lumpy bits were heading for his face, after all. And Slim's shady little “What the f*ck?” moment was all a big act, too.
Boo… We can’t help but be a little bit disappointed by this revelation. Still, at least it proves ‘Nem can act if he puts his mind to it...
