WONDER DISSES EM: Well, it's nice to know that Michael Jackson still has some friends - calling Eminem's MJ-baiting video disappointing. Wonderfully, Wonder manages to be snitty as well as chiding:

"Kicking someone when he's down is not a good thing," Wonder was quoted as telling the music industry trade publication. "I have much respect for his work, though I don't think he's as good as (late rapper) 2Pac. But I was disappointed that he would let himself go to such a level."

Yeah, it's really sad to see someone descend from the lofty heights of suggesting that lesbians should be raped to making fun of an attention-seeking celebrity, isn't it. If Wonder had really wanted to turn the knife, though, he'd have said "I don't think he's as good as Vanilla Ice."

What is bemusing is that Wonder doesn't think Eminem has any right to have a go at Mickey because, erm, he's white:

"He has succeeded on the backs of people predominantly in that lower pay bracket, people of color. So for him to come out like that is bull."

Yeah, you shouldn't question how the multi-millionaire (or, at least, former multi-millionaire) Michael Jackson conducts himself because there are black people working for shit wages cleaning gas station toilets. That makes sense, Stevie.
