BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Jackson anger over Eminem video

BBC NEWS Entertainment Jackson anger over Eminem video: "Jackson anger over Eminem video Michael Jackson has asked TV stations to stop playing Eminem's new video, which ridicules the pop legend, saying it is 'outrageous and disrespectful'. Eminem dresses as Jackson for the Just Lose It video, and is shown on a bed with young boys. His nose also falls off and his hair catches fire. 'It is one thing to spoof but it is another to be demeaning and insensitive,' Jackson said. US cable's Black Entertainment Network is the only channel to ban it so far. The song and video make references to Jackson's looming trial on 10 child abuse charges, which he denies. Come here little kiddies on my lap Guess who's back with a brand new rap And I don't mean rap as in a new case Of child investigation accusate Eminem - Just Lose It Eminem - Just Lose It
They also poke fun at his reputed plastic surgery and an accident while filming a Pepsi commercial in 1984 when Jackson's hair caught fire. 'I am very angry at Eminem's depiction of me in his video,' Jackson told Los Angeles radio host Steve Harvey, according to a transcript from the singer's publicist. 'I've admired Eminem as an artist, and was shocked by this. 'The video was inappropriate and disrespectful to me, my children, my family, and the community at large.' Black Entertainment Television (BET) president Robert Johnson said he felt it was inappropriate to disparage a celebrity. A spokesman for the network told BBC Radio Five Live their decision was 'partly out of respect for the relationship we've had with Michael over the years'. 'Just a metaphor' Jackson added: 'It is my hope that the other networks will take BET"
