Avril Lavigne was taken aback when Eminem showed up to express his admiration at the MTV VMA.

During Avril Lavigne’s inaugural award show experience, emotions ran rampant, and encountering Eminem only added to the intensity.

In 2002, Eminem dominated the MTV VMAs, securing victories in four categories: Video of the Year, Best Male Video, Best Rap Video, and Best Direction in the Video.

I was about to […] my pants. What is happening?!
