Eminem made a surprise appearance at WSJ. Magazine's fourth annual Innovator Awards in New York last night, in order to honour two important people in his life: Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine.
"Dre and Jimmy are like a force of nature," he said in his introduction as he addressed the audience.
"As an example of how powerful they are, they got me to fly here all the way from Detroit to speak publicly. And I really hate public speaking," he added.
Jimmy and Dre were honoured at the event for their years of entrepreneurship, what with having founded Beats and recently launching the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy, devoted to arts, technology and innovation.
The event also saw Madonna honour dancer Charles 'Lil Buck' Riley, as she explained in her speech how fearless he was.
