*Eminem and Rihanna, who performed their hit “Love The Way You Lie” at the 2011 Grammys, will hit the stage together again – this time for their first live performance of “The Monster’ for Sunday’s 2014 MTV Movie Awards.
The two have performed, separately, on the awards show in the past. In 2009, Eminem rapped a medley of “We Made You/Crack a Bottle” and then created one of those memorable moments with Sacha Baron Cohen, who flew in as character Bruno and wound up with his face in Eminem’s lap. The rapper stormed out and later admitted it was all a set-up stunt.
Rihanna performed one of her signature hits, “Umbrella,” with Jay Z in 2007.
As previously reported, Em and RiRi will kick off a brief stadium tour on August 7 with a show at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles before moving to New York’s Metlife Stadium on August 16 and wrapping up in Slim Shady’s hometown with a gig at Detroit’s Comerica Park on August 22.
The 2014 MTV Movie Awards airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT from Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater L.A. LIVE.
