If you had any lingering doubts as to the level of involvement Eminem had in the Bruno prank, then this interview with RapRadar via The Sun might clear things up. Eminem admits that Sacha Cohen called him while he was in Europe asking if he wanted to be part of a gag at the MTV Movie Awards. Eminem, a big fan, agreed.
They did rehearse it, but Em boasts 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. After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about 3 hours. Especially after I saw it on air.”
As far as the rumor that thieves took off with $60,000 in jewelery and a laptop from his hotel room, he says that only his Nike watch was stolen.
I’ve never even heard of RapRadar so who knows if this interview is even real. They could have talked with a fake Eminem. Their site didn’t even come into existence until late last year. Plus, there’s no contact page or anything. Take this interview for what you will. I took it as truth because I believe everything I read on the internet is 100% real. Much like that guy and pro-wrestling.
