The LA Times makes some alarmingly stupid points to “prove” that Eminem was in on the joke last night when Bruno dropped into his lap at the MTV Movie Awards. Namely…
1. “It can’t be a coincidence that the two forces met and cameras were poised to catch it perfectly on TV.” No it’s not a coincidence. It’s a TV show. That’s how they work. They point cameras at events as they happen to “catch” them.
2. “Furthermore, it seemed like Eminem was wearing a live microphone…” Well Brunos would have been about 12 inches away. That should be close enough. You don’t have to swallow the things.
3. “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?” Are we starting over? Go read Point 1 again.
But they clearly feel it was staged, and Drudge links to a Daily Mail story with a link titled “STAGED”. The Daily Mail doesn’t actually go that far, but it’s possible the story has changed since the link went up. Radar Online seems to be the only one with any new news at all:
We don’t know if Eminem was in on the joke, but Sasha Baron Cohen and a group of pals were laughing and drinking after the MTV Movie Awards Sunday.
The caper, however, was not well-received by all … partying at a West Hollywood celebrity hive, the Chateau Marmont hotel, the Borat funnyman boozed it up with pals, according to an on-scene source. As a girl walked by Cohen, she loudly told him, “You’re disgusting,” before walking away.
So at least Sacha is still alive, or was last night for a few hours. The reason I’m so alarmingly slow today is because I’ve been calling all my friends to figure out the truth here. Unfortunately I don’t have a really huge circle of friends. There’s that pretty black girl at Starbucks who calls me “baby” when I order, but I don’t think she knows anyone in Hollywood. And then there’s my friend Essence. “Friend”. “Girlfriend”, practically. I know those girls act like they like you because you’re buying dances, but I don’t think this is that. I really get the feeling this is different. When I brought her flowers she even kissed me on the cheek.
