Eminem wins VMA for best hip-hop video
Eminem won the MTV Video Music Award for best hip-hop video Sunday night for his song
We Made You.
Eminem disappeared from the spotlight for several years while he dealt with personal issues, including drug addiction. He re-emerged this year and enjoyed success with his new CD,
Wow. This is crazy, the rapper said as he took the stage to collect his moon-man trophy.
I want to just say thank you to the fans, first and foremost, for sticking by me this whole time.
Earlier in the VMA show, T.I. won the best male video prize for his song
Live Your Life, featuring Rihanna.
T.I. is serving a prison sentence for a firearms conviction and wasn't able to attend the ceremony at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall.
