King of Pop Rules the Ladies’ Room
Sony moves Jacko’s pics to the women’s lavatory—but it beats the boys’ room.
Between his personal legal issues and the fact that his last album, Invincible, cost a reported $30 million to produce but sold just 2 million copies, Michael Jackson is not particularly in favor with his record company at the moment. So it’s maybe not surprising that at Sony’s West Side recording studios, where pictures and records of artists line the walls, the Gloved One’s likenesses were recently relocated to the ladies’ room (better that, one supposes, than the little boys’ room). “I have no idea why those pictures are there,’’ says Tony Drootin, director of audio operations for the studio. “That’s where they ended up being hung. Jessica Simpson’s picture is outside my office, and that’s by chance, too.’’
