    Disney removes statue inspired by Jackson

    http://msnbc.msn.com/id/4433491/

    The Walt Disney Co. has quietly shelved a life-size statue of Mickey Mouse inspired by singer Janet Jackson, who was roundly criticized for a risque Super Bowl halftime performance. ... The statue inspired by Jackson was clad in a tight black outfit similar to one she wore in 1990 after the release of her album, Rhythm Nation 1928. It was replaced by a spare statue designed by Luis Fernandez, an in-house Disney artist.

    They had replacements sitting in the wings? Or did they quickly scramble to get a new one made?
