During Dr. Dre’s appearance on “TMZ Live” on Monday, he was asked about Eminem taking a knee and a line in Kendrick Lamar’s performance that was omitted.  Dr. Dre said, “There were a few things that we had to change, but it was really minor things.  Em taking a knee, that was Em doing that on his own and there was no problem with that.  I think the beginning of Kendrick’s set he says, ‘if Pirus and Crips all’ they had a problem with that so we had to take that out.  No big deal.  We get it.”

In the “TMZ” video below, watch Dr. Dre talk about all of this as well as his fast food cheat run, who he partied with after the performance and a secret regarding Mary J. Blige that he’s not sure he was supposed to mention.
