Rebellious. Controversial. Iconic.
Of all the terms used to describe Eminem, rarely would one resort to anything that depicted the rapper as having a sense of humor. But that's all changed, now that Eminem has owned up to his role in the buzzed-about stunt between himself and Bruno at this year's MTV Movie Awards.
"I'm thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it," the artist told RapRadar.com "It had so many people going nuts, so to speak. Everyone was blowing me up about it."
In case 8 Mile wasn't evidence enough, Eminem showed the world his acting skills at the MTV Movie Awards.
How did the stunt come about?
"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."
While viewers were wondering about the legitimacy of Bruno's bare-assed attack, Eminem says he was laughing over it.
"After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about three hours. Especially after I saw it on air."
