Eminem Cracks

Admits Involvement in Taintgate

6/3/2009 6:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Eminem, BrunoIn case you still believe the Eminem/Sacha Baron Cohen incident from the MTV Movie Awards was real... Em just proved you're a gullible Gary by admitting he was knee deep in Sacha's butt stunt.

Em became the 496th person to confirm the whole thing was planned, telling RapRadar.com, "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."

It looks as if, unlike some people, Em has emerged from this Bruno encounter unscathed.

Please. This doesn't prove anything. M&M could just be saying this to save face. How can you people be so naive?

At first I never thought that Eminem would agree to a self-deprecating joke especially to the severity performed upon him.

But now with his comments and of course the previous poster's insight, conclusion, he must be testing and promoting Eminem tea bags.

sorry, i'm not buying it. c'mon people. he's just not that good of an actor. that was genuine surprise, disgust, and anger. his pride was so hurt that they would dare do that to him, he had to walk out like a baby. and because he knows what a baby he looked like, he's trying to save face now by pretending he was in on it.

The look on Miss Em's face was priceless! She's trying desperately to save face but there's no way anyone, that knows the character Eminem plays, is going to believe he was in on it. This is an instant classic!

There's no way Eminem knew ahead of time; he's just trying to do damage control and save face.

Ok anyone with half a brain can see what this was all about. Eminem was in on the joke. It's called PR people! He just released Relapse and now look at all the free press he's getting!

I happen to be one of those that think this is eminem trying to save face. I am sure MTV crapped a brick when eminem got embaressed and his people got in touch with theirs to be sure and make it seem like the story was it was planned and eminem WANTED to have another mans butt in his face.


not buying it, seems like everyones PR trying to find a way to save face for eminem.

M was caught off guard during this nasty prank...

his so called brainless bodyguards were caught off guard during this nasty prank....

and MTV looked just downright NASTY setting someone up like that.

What would Clint Eastwood do if that happened to him.

Walk out and feel like a fool.

Nasty effing prank.
