The ongoing spat between Jackson and Eminem, over Eminem's "disrespectful video" about Jackson "Just Lose It", has polarised the Jackson camp and the rest of the music world.
Jackson has demanded that the video be pulled from all of the music networks. Only Black Entertainment Television has complied, the rest have "cocked a snoop" at the request.
Even MTV, once Jackson's best buddies in the music world, have ignored his request.
It seems that in the eyes of MTV, and the rest, Eminem is the new king of pop.
