(Newser) – Eminem tells RapRadar he went back to his hotel room and "laughed uncontrollably for about three hours" after his rigged stunt at the MTV Movie Awards with Sacha Baron Cohen. "Especially after I saw it on the air." Eminem, who pretended to be outraged when Cohen's butt ended up in his face, said he's "thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it."

As for how it started, "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." The rapper also dismissed rumors he lost tens of thousands of dollars in a hotel room burglary, saying only his watch is missing.
