Eminem: I was in on Bruno's gag

Bruno: "My kugelsack!" etc.
Bruno: "My kugelsack!" etc.

OK, this really is the last you'll hear from us on Bruno V Eminem (probably): the man otherwise known as Slim Shady has confirmed previous reports that their buttock-based antics at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards were indeed planned and rehearsed.

In an interview with Rap Radar, Eminem said: "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.

"I'm thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it.It had so many people going "nuts" so to speak. Everyone was blowing me up about it.

"After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about three hours. Especially after I saw it on air."

So, unless anyone has any further conspiracy theories, this case is now officially closed.
