I'm not a fan of anyone involved, so I'm still figuring out how I feel about the MTV spectacle (link nsfw) last night. Gut reaction: Bruno's humor is mean spirited, and I really have had enough of that. It's not the crude that bothers me, it's the intent to humiliate. On the upside: should anyone shoot Sacha Baron Cohen now, the entire left half of the blogosphere will blame Eminem.
"There's no way it was an accident," an industry insider who was seated a few rows in front of Eminem tells TVGuide.com.
Certainly we'd all like it to be staged. The thought of a universe where random chance can lead to Sacha Baron Cohen's butt in your face chills us.
