PUFFED-UP PEOPLE OF POP: We've always suspected that Eminem's self-directed humour was stirctly licensed, so long as he retains control - like the Lord of Misrule in Medeaval times was supposedly an upsetting of the social order but only ever within strict boundaires. And now, it seems, we were right. Eminem won't let Weird Al Jankovitz do a parody video of Lose Yourself. His spokesperson says ""It's an important personal piece of music for him, a piece of art," spokesman Dennis Dennehy said Friday. "He doesn't mind him doing the song, (but) he didn't want to change kids' visual perception on what that image was. He wanted to make sure the image would remain intact."
Don't mess with the piece of art, man. This, of course, is the same Eminem who happily guyed One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest for a video, is it? But maybe the rules are different for Eminem.
