Sure it was planned, sure it was MTV, but to see Sacha Baron Cohen, dressed as gay Austrian fashion guru Brüno, fly down from the ceiling and land on Eminem’s lap with his crotch in his face, all while Eminem’s homo-hating, Neanderthal masters like Dr. Dre scuttle and scatter about, not having a clue how to react, is still comedy gold.

There’s long been a doth-protest-too-much air to hip-hop’s obsessive gay bashing, and rumors have swirled almost from the beginning about Eminem’s real sexual leanings, in spite of (or because of) all the hate he and his pimps like Dre spew toward the gay community.  But leave it to Sacha Baron Cohen to put it so outrageously in Eminem’s and his posse’s faces.

Misogynistic and homophobic rap and hip hop have mercifully been dying off for a while now.  But they can't die off soon enough and, with this genius bit, Sacha Baron Cohen my have just put the final nail in these douchbags.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
