Eminem opened up the 2010 MTV VMA’s with “Not Afraid” leading into “Love The Way You Lie”. The shocker though was Rihanna (whose also featured on the song) making an appearance even though a few days ago she stated to Entertainment Tonight that she won’t be at the awards to perform the Recovery track due to her filming the movie Battleship. Very confused….
