Singing comedian Weird Al Yankovich has accused Eminem of practicing double
standards, after the rapper blocked Yankovich's request to spoof the video for
his hit track Lose Yourself.
Weird Al has parodied songs by Eminem, Nelly and Avril Lavigne on his new
album POODLE HAT, but while the rapper could do very little to block Lose
Yourself's comedy makeover under the new title COUCH POTATO, he drew the line
Yankovich to use his image in the accompanying video.
And Yankovich finds Eminem's move strange, considering he also enjoys
having a laugh at other people's expense.
He says, "It's a little ironic because Eminem does make fun of other
people in his videos quite often and you'd think he wouldn't have a problem
with the tables being turned, but oh well..."
