Memo to Eminem: At this point, the Michael Jackson spoof concept is a little stale. At least Jackson thinks so. In fact, he's so mad at how he's spoofed in the rapper's new video, "Just Lose It," that he's calling on all cable channels to pull the clip from rotation. In the video, Eminem -- mockingly dressed as Jackson -- reportedly ridicules plastic surgery done on Jackson's nose and an accident in which his hair caught fire, and mockingly refers to Jackson's child molestation allegations. BET has already pulled the video. "Michael feels the video is disrespectful and offensive," said Jackson spokesman Ramone Bain . . .
All you Beatles completists, take note: Capitol Records has bundled together the group's first four U.S. albums -- "Meet the Beatles," "The Beatles Second Album," "Something New" and "Beatles '65" -- as a boxed set titled "The Capitol Albums, Vol. 1," to be released Nov. 16. The set will feature remastered stereo and mono versions of each song, the original album covers, and a 48-page booklet chronicling 1964 -- the year the albums were released in the States . . .
Free-jazz pioneer Ornette Coleman will be awarded the Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize -- a silver medallion and a check for $250,000 -- at a ceremony tomorrow in New York. The annual award honors those who have made extraordinary contributions to the arts . . .
If you happen to be in Tempe, Ariz., tonight, and you want to see the Foo Fighters in concert, you're in luck.
