Music Buzz #22, Eminem's in Hot Water
Eminem is accused of copyright infringement, Britney Spears' break-up and Lil' Romeo's new video, 2 Way.
The "did they or didn't they" break-up game for Britney and Justin came to an end when it became official that America's hottest young couple called it quits. In an interview with The Big Breakfast (a British show,) Britney finally confirmed that she is single. Britney has been spotted out on the town partying without her curly-headed man and Justin Timberlake has been spotted with a pretty brunette on more than one occasion. I don't expect either of them to be goin' solo for too long.
Bad-boy Eminem is in trouble again. This time it's not for his explicit lyrics, it's for copyright infringement (using someone else's music without permission) of music. Eminem and his label, Interscope Records, have been accused of using parts of a piece called Pulsion by jazz pianist and composer Jacques Loussier, for Eminem's song Kill You. The lawsuit was filed in New York on March 28, 2002.
If you've been missin' your boy Lil' Romeo, it won't be long 'til his new video debuts and his new CD, Game Time, hits store shelves on June 4th. The 12 year-old cutie shot the video for his first single, 2 Way, which puts Romeo on the b-ball court head-to-head against himself. For his second CD, Romeo dusted off a few old-skool tunes for sampling like Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock's It Takes Two on his song 2 Way. "I like sampling because a lot of kids don't get to hear the music from way back, so I bring it so they can hear it," explains Lil' Romeo.
