Eminem Says No To Weird Al Spoof

Rapper EMINEM can't see the funny side of a WEIRD AL YANKOVICH video parody - he's refused permission for the spoof.

Weird Al has parodied songs by Eminem, NELLY and AVRIL LAVIGNE on his new album POODLE HAT but when the rapper heard the funnyman's take on his hit LOSE YOURSELF he didn't get the joke.

Eminem can do very little about the joke song, retitled COUCH POTATO - because it's clearly a parody of his 8 MILE song, but he can make sure his image doesn't appear in the accompanying video.

Weird Al says, "It's disappointing. Eminem's manager said that he was afraid that a Weird Al video might somehow detract from his legacy or make people view him in a less serious manner."
