Eminem to Perform at MTV Movie Awards
After a three-year hiatus, it looks like Eminem is finally coming up for air. The Detroit rapper has a new album on the way and was recently booked to perform at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. His performance will follow the release of 'Relapse' on May 19 and will be the first time he's appeared on the music channel since 2005.
This year's MTV Movie Awards, hosted by SNL cast member Andy Samberg, will be held on May 31 at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, CA. Additional performances will be announced in coming weeks.
In related news, Eminem's comeback album is already ruffling feathers. The video for 'We Made It,' the first official single off 'Relapse,' has caused a stir amongst Eminem critics and fans/supporters of his latest victims. Bill O'Reilly publicly bashed the rapper for poking fun at Sarah Palin in the video. The MC also takes a stab at Bret Michaels, Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan in the 'Rock of Love'-themed
"I wanna say it's not necessarily intentional bashing in it," Eminem said. "It's not necessarily taking deliberate shots at people. ... Yes, it is. What the [expletive] am I talking about?"
