The real Slim Shady stood up and made fun of Michael Jackson by dangling a baby doll over a hotel balcony in Glasgow. Rapper Eminem also wore a surgical mask over his face yesterday (June 24) in an obvious swipe at Jackson, who caused a furor in November when he held his baby son, Prince Michael II, over a balcony railing in Berlin.

Eminem, who was staying at the Art House Hotel in Glasgow, went further than Jackson by tossing the doll into the air and catching it.

"Empersonator," said a headline in the Daily Mirror tabloid, which published three photos. The New York Post's front page blared: "Oh baby! Eminem does his best Jacko."

Scotland's Daily Record tabloid said the incident occurred as fans and photographers gathered outside the hotel before Eminem's concert there last night. The artist is on a U.K. tour but has kept a low profile between shows.

Also featuring Xzibit, Cypress Hill, D12 and Obie Trice, the tour will close with a pair of shows tomorrow and Friday at the Punchestown Race Course in Naas, Ireland. Eminem will stage what are said to be his only U.S. shows of the year July 12-13 at Detroit's Ford Field.
