Jackson Seeks Ban on Eminem's New Video.
NEW YORK - Michael Jackson (news) is reportedly angered by the way he is portrayed in rapper Eminem (news - web sites)'s recently released video
"Just Lose It." The pop singer is said to be so upset that he has asked networks to remove the video from their rotations.
In the video, Eminem appears dressed mockingly as Jackson with a group of boys in the background, jumping. Then he sings the lyric in reference to
Jackson's child molestation allegations: "Come here little kiddie, on my lap. Guess who's back with a brand new rap..."
Later in the video Eminem also ridicules plastic surgery done on Jackson's nose, and an accident in which Jackson's hair caught on fire while
filming a Pepsi commercial in 1984.
So far, Black Entertainment Television has agreed to pull the video, and was expected on Tuesday to announce that it is removing the video.
"Michael feels the video is disrespectful and offensive...it's one thing to spoof someone, it's another to be completely insensitive and
disrespectful," said Bain.
