Bruno’s MTV Crack Attack on Eminem: New Details

It’s the $64,000 question of the day: Was the Flying 69 that Sacha Baron Cohen executed on Eminem at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards staged or not?

The answer, according to Life & Style magazine, is a little bit of both.

An MTV insider tells the mag that producer Mark Burnett did, indeed, get the go-ahead from Eminem to allow Cohen—in the guise of his latest movie character Bruno—to drop in from the sky and situate his rear end in the rapper’s face.

But according to the source, Em was left in the dark as to how naked Cohen would be when the stunt was pulled. And as everyone who watched the awards ceremony last night knows, Cohen was in a very natural state indeed.

A second source reveals another tidbit about the stunt: That Eminem wasn’t the first celebrity they intended to pull the stunt on. Apparently, the producers had first hoped to drop Cohen’s butt in the face of hotel heiress Paris Hilton, but she declined—because Hilton is classy like that, yo.

“Paris is quite happy she turned down the offer,” the insider notes.

What, like she would have even noticed?
