MTV Goes Back to the Eminem Gay Panic Well


Somehow it doesn’t seem that likely that the MTV Movie Awards planning committee just happened to drop an in-character Sasha Baron Cohen (Bruno, coming soon!) balls-first onto an album-promoting, famously gay-hating Eminem, who, among other things, has only been one of the two or three most valuable artists to Viacom in the last decade or so. Cameron Diaz’s face was off limits for some reason? (Or, alternately–isn’t that basically what D-12 is there for? To intercept falling naked men before they land on top of everybody’s meal ticket?) But sure, by all means, watch and reminisce–in another five years, what are the odds that Eminem calls Cohen when he needs help with his newfound sex addiction or whatever?
