I remember when Michael Jackson raised hell over Eminem's parody of the Gloved One the music clip for "Just Lose It." Em basically told Jacko to lighten up, it was all in good humor after all. Well, I wonder how the Slim Shady feels now that Michael Jackson owns the rights to two of his biggest hits: "Without Me" and "The Real Slim Shady."Jackson, who owns a stake in The Beatles' catalog, recently acquired Famous Music LLC from Viacom. The new purchase grants him copyright access to the aforementioned Eminem songs, in addition to songs by Beck, Shakira, and Bjork.
"This is a milestone event for Sony/ATV Music Publishing," said Jackson in a statement. "The diverse collection of songs in this catalog range from timeless classics to contemporary hits, and I am pleased to add the acquisition of Famous Music to Sony/ ATV."Image © Interscope
