Michael Jackson Sells Beatles Song For Use In Diaper Ad
Superstar MICHAEL JACKSON has licensed the use of the BEATLES' song ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE for a series of new advertisements - for a diaper company.
The Thriller hitmaker still has a stake in the music publishing company Sony/ATV, which owns the rights to the Fab Four's back catalogue.
But the company's decision to license the hit All You Need Is Love to pharmaceutical and cosmetics firm Proctor + Gamble is a "surprise" to John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono, because they had always given her advance notice of their intentions in the past.
The song will appear in adverts for the Luvs branded diapers, according to the New York Daily News.
