Michael Jackson wants to work with Eminem. Despite being mocked by the rapper in his 'Just Lose It' music video three years ago, Michael would love to join forces with the controversial star. He said: "The guy is a lyrical genius and I would love to work with him."
Michael was left angry after Eminem dressed in a 'Thriller'-style outfit in the 2004 promo, and mocked the infamous accident when Michael's hair caught fire while filming a Pepsi advert in 1984. In another scene, Eminem is seen dressed as the 'Billie Jean' singer in bed with young boys dancing around him. At the time, Michael, 48, was at the centre of child abuse allegations.
Despite being cleared of all charges in 2005, the singer's career nosedived and is yet to recover. It was recently revealed Michael had acquired the rights to some of Eminem's biggest hits, after he purchased Famous Music LLC from Viacom.
