Eminem kicked off the 2010 MTV VMAs with a bang Sunday evening, baring his soul while performing his single “Not Afraid” and following it up by making everyone’s heads spin with Rihanna (wearing a warped version of Carrie’s tutu ensemble from Sex & The City‘s opening credits) during their tremendous hit “Love The Way You Lie”.
