Eminem, Rihanna to Team on ‘The Monster’ at MTV Movie Awards
By Kevin Rutherford
But that’s about to change this coming Sunday, when the duo convenes to perform at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.
According to MTV, the rapper and singer will play the Marshall Mathers LP 2 hit at the awards this Sunday (April 13), marking the first time the tune has been performed by its creators in front of an audience. Both artists have history at the ceremony; Eminem performed “Crack a Bottle” and “We Made You” as part of his return from retirement in 2009, while Rihanna invited you to stand under her “Umbrella” in 2007.
In 2010, they presented “Love the Way You Lie” to an adoring crowd at MTV’s Video Music Awards.
It certainly won’t be the last time, either. The duo is slated to go out on tour together this August, starting Aug. 7 in Los Angeles at the Rose Bowl.
Other performers at this year’s MTV Movie Awards currently include Twenty One Pilots and a collaboration between Ellie Goulding and Zedd. Conan O’Brien is set to host the awards, which will take place Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
