Pop legend Michael Jackson has bought publishing rights for rapper Eminem's back catalogue. The Thriller hitmaker, who also currently owns The Beatles copyright, has purchased Famous Music LLC from Viacom for an undisclosed amount. Jackson is now the owner of The Real Slim Shady and Without Me but also owns the rights to songs by Shakira, Beck and Bjork under the transaction. The singer says, "This is a milestone event for Sony/ATV Music Publishing. The diverse collection of songs in this catalogue range from timeless classics to contemporary hits, and I am pleased to add the acquisition of Famous Music to Sony/ ATV." Eminem parodied Jackson in his video for 2002 hit Without Me.

WELL WEL WEL!!! now michael can sing the song to EMinem, "without me" you cant do s**t! i wonder whether michael would choose to cease realesing any of those songs anymore, wipe them of the face of the earth, hmmm what will "the real slim shady" do then? HA! Then again, this may be a nice gesture from michael jackson, being the great person he is, to get eminem and him to be friends. hey why not? you gota admit, as much as a gronk eminem is, he is talented, no where near as talented as MJ, but still, friendship is the best deal. Im sure michael knows what he is doin, hes back. and watch this comeback! hes the true king of rock, POP and soul! and he has a personality to go with it!
