Eminem Wins Six Billboard Music Awards

As Billboard magazine honors music's top selling acts Sunday night, an absent Eminem ties Justin Bieber for the top honors.

Unless you’re counting host Ken Jeong’s decision to dress as Flavor Flav and then crawl under Nas’ legs, Eminem offered the biggest Hip Hop presence at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards. It should be noted that Em didn’t actually attend the mostly Pop affair, which was dominated by the likes of Justin Bieber, Beyonce and Britney Spears.

Eminem tied Bieber for the most awards at six wins. Out of 46 award categories, Shady took home nods for Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album [Recovery], Top Rap Album and Top Rap Song [“Love The Way You Lie” ].

While the selection process by the National Acacemy of Recording Arts and Sciences has recently come under fire for their more subjective methods used for selecting Grammy Award winners, Billboard stated, “all finalists and winners were determined by a combination of chart performances.” The eligibility period for nominations ran from February 28, 2010 through March 1, 2011. The amount of their respective awards reflected the strength of Eminem and Bieber’s current sales. To date, Em’s Recovery has sold over 3.8 million copies, while Bieber’s My World 2.0 has moved over 2.7 million units.

Notable performers Sunday night were Cee-Lo Green, Beyonce, Mary J. Blige and Lil Wayne, and Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, who both featured Britney Spears as a guest performer.

    Ofc this Muthafucka wins 90 % of his fans is some mtv watching bitches. Eminem is a clown I know that Eminem is from 8 mile but i come from a school when we were battleling on the streets with guns out These niggaz would put you under pressure We were batteling like this " I don't walk or starve livin thuglife" i dont think eminem would be able to stand that " Hi my name is eminem and i eat eminems and i eat you" the Street niggaz would reach for the gat and like SHUT THE FUCK UP it would be a shut the fuck up of top . I just think em is a clown.Why do we call eminem the best when he only puts out clown shit "hi my name is " We made you" cleanin out my closet" Comeon that's not my favorite rapper man Let's compare him to 2pac or H.O.V Let's take eminem to sing a song like it's a hard knocked life = Still dope w if we take jay z to do a song like We made you =? THEY WOULD LAUGH THE SHIT OUT OF THIS GUY No disrespect it's my opinion ... Em is a male bitch Who talks about killin his mother,. I know im gonna get alot of hate from you mtv bitches But i don't give a shit what you say

    Congradulations Eminem, your last three CD's are LIVING PROOF that MIRACLES do happen and you are a CHAMPION to many people. I hope all is WELL.

    You know what?I'm actually happy that Eminem won all those awards. I'm happy that he basically represented Hip-Hop as a whole at the award show(even though he wasn't really there). I'm glad to see him succeed because of where he came from and by no means am I an Eminem fan. Just because I respect him, doesn't mean Im a stan.
