Jackson Buys A Stake In Eminem Catalogue

Pop legend MICHAEL JACKSON has bought publishing rights for rapper EMINEM's back catalogue. The Thriller hitmaker, who also currently owns The Beatles copyright, has purchased Famous Music LLC from Viacom for an undisclosed amount. Jackson is now the owner of The Real Slim Shady and Without Me but also owns the rights to songs by Shakira, Beck and Bjork under the transaction. The singer says, "This is a milestone event for Sony/ATV Music Publishing. The diverse collection of songs in this catalogue range from timeless classics to contemporary hits, and I am pleased to add the acquisition of Famous Music to Sony/ ATV." Eminem parodied Jackson in his video for 2002 hit Without Me.

Why you taking this as a dig at Em? Would someone who is going to be releasing a song with 50 Cent be trying to be a c**t to his friend? You think when Michael Jackson bought the Beatles' rights, he was trying to piss them off and get back at them? Settle down man

the beatles my friend had class.they never made fun of anyone.eminem didn't and does not ..when you are a new star and you make fun of a legend in your clip,instead of just shut the hell up,well this is what you get.there is so much pain in the world you can critisize if you want to and not jacksons ass.you see,that's the diference.sony and jackson bought other artists rights too.do you see anyone talk about them?of course not.you can even see it in this article.everybody talks about eminem cause he was the disrespectfull. it is indeed a bussiness deal..but the other artits didn't stoop down to ems level.f*** someone in your own video clip without a logical reason just for the publicity?well this is why now this story is interesting and everybody lauphs..other artists never made fun of any other artists like that..it's not just bussiness when it comes to eminem and jackson..it's payback time to someone that made fan of someone else without a logical sence of class..

WELL WEL WEL!!! now michael can sing the song to EMinem, "without me" you cant do s**t! i wonder whether michael would choose to cease realesing any of those songs anymore, wipe them of the face of the earth, hmmm what will "the real slim shady" do then? HA! Then again, this may be a nice gesture from michael jackson, being the great person he is, to get eminem and him to be friends. hey why not? you gota admit, as much as a gronk eminem is, he is talented, no where near as talented as MJ, but still, friendship is the best deal. Im sure michael knows what he is doin, hes back. and watch this comeback! hes the true king of rock, POP and soul! and he has a personality to go with it!
