Moby, Eminem, Triumph the Comic Dog, and the MTV Video Music Awards  AUG 30 2002

Moby and Eminem got into a bit of a scuffle (photo) during the MTV Video Music Awards last night. Eminem got booed by the crowd for referring to Moby as a girl and then made a remark in Moby's direction about hitting a man with glasses. Jeering, posing, and hand gestures followed.

Apparently, the feud started at the 2001 Grammys when Moby spoke out against Eminem's misogynistic lyrics and homophobia. Eminem didn't like that too much, so he wrote Moby into "Without Me", the first single off of his latest album:

"And Moby? You can get stomped by Obie
You thirty-six year old baldheaded fag, blow me
You don't know me, you're too old, let go
It's over, nobody listens to techno"

I care little for this goofy "feud" and even less about Eminem, but it's fun to hear what Moby had to say about last night in his weblog. He's also posted some pictures from the night's festivities, including shots of the Hilton sisters, Kelly Osbourne, The White Stripes, The Strokes, and assorted revelers.
