Glee creator Ryan Murphy snubs Eminem

'Lose Yourself' proves too costly for musical series

Glee creator Ryan Murphy has snubbed plans to use a track by Eminem for the show after the rapper’s record label demanded $200,000 (£126,000).

Eminem meanwhile is set to feature on Dr Dre’s forthcoming single ‘I Need A Doctor’.
