Quote

"I'm not one to sit back and point the finger and say, 'Oh, I feel bad for what happened to them.' I want to do something, to give to help those who lost their parents, who lost their mothers and their fathers. Those are our people. Those are our children. Those are our parents. "I want the whole world to sing [What More Can I Give], to bring us together as a world, because a song is a mantra, something you repeat over and over. And we need peace, we need giving, we need love, we need unity."

- Michael Jackson

Celebrities Talk MJ!

Uri Geller:
This, I promise, is how you will react when you meet Michael Jackson: you'll stare, you'll start, you'll step up and you'll freeze. Everyone does the same thing - fans, celebrities, journalists, children, parents, shoppers, waitresses, prime ministers, prime ministers' bodyguards ...

Eminem:
Of every album I have listened to, the best of the year by far has been Invincible. Michael Jackson deserves a lot more credit than he is getting, one of the most influential performers of all time.

Ricky Martin:
All that I know comes from Michael Jackson.

Prince:
Asked by a reporter if he could take Michael Jackson in a fistfight Prince laughed and quipped "Michael's not a fighter, he's a lover."

From a personal perspective, the events since Michael Jackson's death have appalled me. Despite the shock of his early demise, at first everything seemed OK, the media were being nice, the Jackson family appeared to be united in grief and even the morons who would normally chastise Michael were unusually quiet.

Now in the real aftermath of his death, all we see is greed, selfishness and people trying to get their piece of Michael even though he isn't here any more. The last 'official' album was an insult to him, some of the tracks were simply just not him singing and he would never have released that album. The trial of his 'doctor' (I refuse to say his name) is another media circus and yet again things have been said about and done to Michael which shouldn't have. The release of the autopsy picture was disgusting, there was no need for it to go public. The only we thing we have to hope for is that the so called 'doctor' gets thrown in jail but it won't make up for anything because Michael is dead and the guy who contributed to his death plus the other hangers-on who were manipulating him have already gained from it all.

In the end Michael was a sincere and caring person who was used and bullied by a vindictive world. The media say he died as a sad junkie. I say he died of a broken heart because despite all of his efforts, he couldn't get past the disappointment of being misunderstood by so many people when all he ever did was do good.

I remain a loyal fan to Michael, I stay committed to spreading the positive word about him and I remain actively involved in the Michael Jackson community. I hope fans will stand together and show that even though Michael has gone, he will never be forgotten and most importantly we won't forget who he really was.

best wishes

This Is It Album / Movie / DVD

The movie 'Michael Jackson: This Is It' played in Cinemas for a limited time worldwide but has now been released on Blu-Ray and DVD.

It offers fans a rare, behind-the-scenes look at Michael Jackson as he developed, created and rehearsed for his sold-out concerts that would have taken place beginning this summer in London's O2 Arena.

Chronicling the months from April through June, 2009, the film is drawn from more than one hundred hours of behind-the-scenes footage, featuring Jackson rehearsing a number of his songs for the show. Audiences will be given a privileged and private look at the singer, dancer, filmmaker, architect, and genius as he creates and perfects his final show.

"I have never been partners with a more creative, innovative or groundbreaking entertainer than Michael Jackson," said Randy Phillips, President & Ceo, Aeg Live and producer of Michael Jackson This Is It. "While the concerts would have been the greatest shows in the history of music, our film will provide a historic event for Michael's fans to see for themselves the genius that he was and the creativity, talent and imagination that the entire cast devoted to create the ‘greatest concert that never happened'."

If you missed out on seeing the movie at the Cinemas then you can buy it on Blu-Ray or DVD.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson

latest.jpg


As a Michael Jackson fan for most of my life, having to face that he is no longer with us is difficult. I think about the difference he has made in my life, I became a fan overnight after watching him in concert at Leeds Roundhay Park in 1988 during the Dangerous Tour. The concert was sensational, he was incredible. I remember waking up next day and it was almost like I had been given a special gift.

The thing is, I had noticed Michael's music because I had bought Thriller many years previously but that was because I liked Van Halen (Eddie Van Halen played the guitar solo on Beat It). Unfortunately though I hadn't progressed to Michael's music so yes I had heard songs from Bad and Dangerous but I hadn't bought the albums. The night at Roundhay Park changed everything, I went out and bought all the albums and I have been a fan ever since.

Being a fan gave me chance to meet other fans and this is how I met my wife. It was chance encounter in a fan chat room which turned into phone calls and then I met her. We have now been married 8 years, she is my soul mate and we have a beautiful 2 year daughter. I count everyday with them as being a blessing and I thank Michael for the inspiration in his music which not only changed my life but made me a better person.

His loss to the world is a tragedy, we need people like him but we are lucky because he will still live on through his music. I think about what we can do and the best thing would be to celebrate his life, his music and let’s remember not only the greatest music artist of all time but also a remarkable caring person.

We will miss you Michael but you will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace

love
Sean

Michael Jackson Acquitted of All Charges

latest.jpg

Michael Jackson has been acquitted of all charges regarding the recent case. This fully vindicates the pop star who was the victim of mother-and-son con artists and a personal vendetta against him by the prosecutor Tom Sneddon

Despite the not-guilty verdict, the Michael Jackson trial was a huge travesty of justice from beginning to end. The District Attorney Tom Sneddon was totally obsessed with getting vengeance and he tried everything he could to get it. He manipulated the witnesses and invented a story filled with lies and innuendo. He had no evidence but he attempted to humiliate Michael Jackson and to bully everyone around him. The Police "investigators" were biased, they didn't even look into the possibility that the family involved in this were lying. They went on a rampage to prove Michael Jackson guilty and it was all fuelled and controlled by the D.A. The Judge in the trial also made a lot of unfair decisions which deliberately favored the prosecution and he did his best to stop the world from knowing whether Michael was receiving a fair trial.

The media coverage of the trial was diabolical, we had broad lies and exaggerations from numerous sources but the worst was from Court TV and people like Diane Dimond. Fortunately after the trial Court TV ditched Dimond even though her contract hadn't ended. They claimed it was amicable but a lot of people are saying Court TV realised they made a bad choice after numerous complaints over her very biased coverage and got rid of her.

Also after the trial the accusers mother was charged with welfare fraud and perjury - to see more - Click Here

I think that just about sums everything up!

I hope that the people responsible for the false lies and accusations will now be taken to task. I hope that there will be an investigation into the corrupt officials in Santa Barbara. Sneddon himself has been accused of racketeering, witness tampering, conspiracy and malicious prosecution

Please read the superb interview on Larry King Live with Michael Jackson's Attorney Thomas Mesereau. He gives a big insight into the case, how the prosecution basically concocted the whole thing and what a wonderful kind person Michael Jackson really is.

Quote from Thomas Mesereau: "I'll tell you what celebrity injustice was in this case. It was sending 70 sheriffs to raid Michael Jackson's home in a search. It was putting more experts, more sheriffs and more investigators on this case than they do with serial killers. That's what I call celebrity injustice. "

Please also read Jermaine Jackson's interview with Larry King

Quote from Jermaine Jackson: "And I have, an 18-page thing of this ongoing charities and things he's done around the world in every corner of the globe, helping people, giving, giving so much. The world needs to see this. They need to know who he really is. When you look at the song "Childhood," and you listen to that song, you listen to what he's saying. We're not ready. We have so far to go, and we're in the year 2005. That's what saddens me, because we should be proud. America should be proud to have someone like a Michael Jackson."

And a Comment from Geraldo Rivera prominent Legal Analyst and Victims Rights Advocate (please note - this was made before the trial verdict)

Quote from Geraldo: "So eager has Sneddon been to nail the prey that eluded him in 1993, that he was more than willing to forgive the accuser's mother her patent welfare fraud and other cons, and in every other way suspend his professional skepticism. He ignored every statement the accuser and his family made exonerating Jackson, including their testimony before the Los Angeles social workers. Additionally, by allowing testimony from her, like that concerning the infamous bikini wax she got during her supposed kidnap ordeal, he has suborned perjury."

Full Comment from Geraldo ~ Click Here

Michael released the following message thanking fans:

"Without God, my children, my family and you, my fans, I could not have made it through. Your love, support and loyalty made it all possible. You were there when I really needed you. I will never forget you. Your ever-present love held me, dried my tears, and carried me through. I will treasure your devotion and support forever. You are my inspiration."

And finally, to all Michael Jackson fans around the world, be happy for him and turn your stereos up with Michael's music and CELEBRATE!!! Or be like Missy Elliot on the B.E.T Awards 2005 and show you are a fan!

New Michael Jackson 5 Disc Box Set

Sony have issued a Press Release on Michael Jackson's new 5 Disc Box Set called "Michael Jackson: The Ultimate Collection" (The picture lower down shows the cover).

Sony Press Release

Three and a half decades after an 11-year old phenomenon from Gary, Indiana and his teenage brothers forever changed the face of popular music, MICHAEL JACKSON - THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION marks the most extensive presentation of his artistry ever assembled in one package.

The deluxe 5-disc display book box set - containing 4 audio CDs (totaling 57 tracks) of hit singles, album tracks, 13 previously unissued recordings, and impossible-to-find rarities from the U.S. and U.K. archives spanning 1969 to 2004, plus a completely unreleased 1992 live concert DVD - will arrive in stores November 16th on Epic Records, a division of Sony Music. The box set was executive produced by Michael Jackson. Project Manager was Al Quaglieri.

For Michael Jackson, whose seven solo albums on Epic Records between 1979 and 2001 (Off The Wall, Thriller, Bad, Dangerous, HIStory: Past, Present and Future - Book 1, Blood On The Dance Floor: History In The Mix and Invincible) and four long-form videos (Video Greatest Hits/HIStory, Dangerous: The Short Films, HIStory On Film, and Number Ones) have sold more than 60-times RIAA platinum in the U.S. alone, THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION is the record of a lifetime. It is, in effect, the ultimate tribute to Michael Jackson's "vibrant vocal personality," as characterized in the newly commissioned 4,000 word liner note essay written by author and veteran R&B journalist Nelson George.

From the career-defining string of four #1 Pop/#1 R&B singles of 1969 and 1970 by the Jackson 5 on Motown Records that open this box set ("I Want You Back," "ABC," "I'll Be There," "Got To Be There" - the first group in history to have their first four internationally-distributed singles all hit #1), to the back-to-back hits that launched his solo career the following year ("Got To Be There," "I Wanna Be Where You Are"), to the quintet of previously unissued works spanning the '90s and '00s that are found on Disc Four ("Fall Again," "In The Back," "Beautiful Girl," "The Way You Love Me," "We've Had Enough"), MICHAEL JACKSON - THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION is truly representative of one of the most leg

endary careers in American popular music. Included are 14 more signature hits by Michael Jackson that reached #1 on the U.S. Pop and/or R&B charts between 1971 and 1995, which would be the backbone of any collection on the artist: "Ben," "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," "Rock With You," "The Girl Is Mine" (with Paul McCartney), "Beat It," "Billie Jean," "Bad," "The Way You Make Me Feel," "Man In The Mirror," "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" (duet with Siedah Garrett), "Dirty Diana," "Remember The Time," "Black Or White," and "You Are Not Alone."

In addition, numerous other signature chart hits are included -- "Off The Wall," "She's Out Of My Life," "Wanna Be Startin' Something," "Thriller," "Smooth Criminal," "Jam," "Blood On The Dance Floor," and "You Rock My World."

This ULTIMATE COLLECTION lives up to its title with the inclusion of 13 previously unissued tracks spanning more than a quarter-century of development. Among these are 9 never-before-heard demo recordings that Michael Jackson has decided to unveil on this box set: "Shake A Body" (with The Jacksons, a fascinating glimpse into the creative process that turned into 1978's "Shake Your Body"), "Sunset Driver" (from the Off The Wall sessions), "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)" (from the Thriller sessions), "Scared of the Moon," "We Are The World" (Michael's own solo demo of this song he co-wrote with Lionel Richie), "Cheater" (from the Bad sessions), and the aforementioned "Fall Again," "Beautiful Girl," and "The Way You Love Me."

Throughout each of the four CDs, there are rarities to be found that will satisfy the hardest-to-please archivists. On Disc One, Michael Jackson's starring role alongside Diana Ross in The Wiz (the 1978 film version of the all-black Broadway musical based on The Wizard Of Oz) is celebrated on their thematic duet "Ease On Down the Road." Jackson turned another song from the production, "You Can't Win," into a 7-minute dance opus issued in the U.K. as a 12-inch. Disc Two features "Someone in the Dark," a song created for The E.T. Storybook in 1982, which was subsequently withdrawn from the market (on MCA Records), but the song was included on the 2001 SACD release, Thriller - Special Edition. ULTIMATE COLLECTION also marks the first commercial appearance of "We Are Here To Change The World," produced in 1986 for the IMAX 3-D short film Captain Eo, that was shown at Disney theme parks.

Disc three uncovers a CD single remix of "Who Is It" (from the Dangerous album) done by Brothers In Rhythm. There is also an edited version of "Someone Put Your Hand Out," a collaboration with Teddy Riley that was distributed on cassette as a promotion by the Dangerous tour sponsor Pepsi-Cola. "Childhood," the evocative theme from 1995's Free Willie 2 movie soundtrack, surfaces on Disc Four, which also contains "On the Line," a song recorded for the Spike Lee film "Get On The Bus."

The fifth disc in MICHAEL JACKSON - THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION is the official commercial debut of a full-length concert DVD (16 selections) from the show that took place in the politically volatile Romanian capital city of Bucharest during the Dangerous tour. The concert was videotaped on September 19, 1992, and premiered October 10th on HBO.

In addition to the hours and hours of audio and video content on this box set, there is also an ample 64-page color booklet to kindle the imagination. Full discographical details of every track (timings, composers, publishers, recording dates, studio personnel and musician rosters, album references and so on) are offset by dozens of rare and never-before-seen photographs and personal memorabilia from Michael Jackson's archives. A chronological timeline covers the entire story and a complete discography are also included, along with Nelson George's essay.

"Michael Jackson made his first recordings during the Age of Aquarius," he writes, "and continues on in the era of downloading. In that respect he has no peers. Not in longevity, overall artistic achievement or plain old record sales over five decades. From The Jackson Five to The Jacksons, from Gary, Indiana to Hollywood, California, from neophyte to master. Is Michael Jackson really the King of Pop? The answer is in your hands."

If you want to see the lyrics for the following songs on The Ultimate Collection:

Beautiful Girl
Cheater
Fall Again
On The Line
Scared Of The Moon
The Way You Love Me
We've Had Enough

Official Sony Press Release on MJ "Number Ones" Album

Sony have issued a Press Release on Michael Jackson's Album and DVD both called "Number Ones". (The pictures lower down show the different covers and there is also the tracklistings).

Sony Press Release

Michael Jackson, is gearing up for another phenomenal release; Number Ones - a retrospective of his national and international No.1 hits; an undeniably thrilling collection on both CD and DVD - released on 17th November.

Since his first solo album was released in 1979, Jackson has amassed more than 2 dozen No.1 hits internationally, 17 of which are contained in one pristine collection for the first time.

The CD, Number Ones begins with a track from one of Jackson's penultimate albums, Off The Wall which was the first record by a solo artist to contain four Top Ten hits, signified the beginning of Jackson's chart domination. But unlike many of the defining moments in 80's pop music history, Jackson's magic is still electrifying over twenty years later.

Off The Wall was a run-a-way success, both critically and commercially, (certified 7x platinum with sales in excess of 20 million worldwide). But Jackson's next release, 1982's Thriller from which Number Ones culls several No.1 hits, is the largest-selling album of all time with over 60 million copies sold.

From the opening chords of Billie Jean, with its unforgettable pounding bass line, to the wild guitar riffs that open Beat It, the singles from Jackson's ultimate album are as thrilling as ever. These records were-and remain-more than just songs. They are events-the thoughts, feelings and emotions that these masterpieces conjure make them classics in every sense of the word. For an endless array of performers, these are the songs that inform and inspire.

After selling more than 60 million copies of Thriller worldwide in just the first few years after it's release, Jackson didn't slow down. He returned, in 1987, with Bad. The first single, I Just Can't Stop Loving You debuted at No.1 and was followed by several chart-toppers. Over the following year, Bad set a record for the most No.1 records released from one album. Number Ones pays homage to several of those tracks, including Bad, Smooth Criminal, Dirty Diana, and The Way You Make Me Feel, as well as the aforementioned I Just Can't Stop Loving You.

With Bad, Jackson elevated his sound and expanded his fan base, going even deeper into hard rock and dance and simultaneously smoothing it out with adult-contemporary and R&B.

Number Ones tells a fascinating story of an artist's growth and development. And the education continues with the seminal, Black or White, the first single from Jackson's 1991, Dangerous. Black or White, was not just a national No.1; the single blasted to the top of the charts in essentially every country, from Austria and Norway, to Spain and Italy.

In 1995, when Jackson released HIStory, a two-disc set featuring one greatest hits collection and one album of new material, he ended up setting yet another record: You Are Not Alone, the uber-ballad, written by R.Kelly, became the first single in Billboard history to debut at No.1.

Number Ones rounds out with You Rock My World, the mid-tempo winner that marked Jackson's return on 2001's Invincible. With it's infectious beat, the track is both a tribute to Jackson's unparalleled greatness and a prelude to what the future holds.

And the future begins now. Included on Number Ones is the brand new single One More Chance (written by R.Kelly) - released on November 10th - a subtle return to Jackson's roots as a heart-wrenching balladeer.

Jackson, with the help of such noted directors as John Landis, Herb Ritts, John Singleton, and Martin Scorcese, has single-handedly invigorated the world of music videos, which he has always viewed as short films. As one of the most visually influential artists of the past twenty years, it is only fitting that Jackson's short films are also represented. The DVD, Number Ones contains fifteen short films that are easily the ultimate in videography since the invention of the art form.

From the trippy, disco-flavored Don't Stop Til You Get Enough to the lush, epic flavor of You Rock My World, Jackson's video collection is simply sublime. Look for the controversial Man in the Mirror, with it's striking imagery and social commentary. Also included is Black and White, the first video to use the morphing technique that is so popular today. And of course, there are all of the amazing dance sequences, of which Jackson is the pioneer. The West Side Story tribute in Beat It; the hardcore hip-hop inspired choreography in Bad, and the amazing precision and technique showcased on Smooth Criminal and Thriller.

With exclusive bonus tracks, and Jackson's newest material, Number Ones is without question, a can't-miss acquisition for any and every music collection.

For the discerning Jackson fan and pop music aficionado, four limited edition covers of Number Ones have been commissioned. Each cover portrays Jackson, during four different eras, in a signature pose, including the glittered-socks and one-glove days of Thriller, and his often-duplicated tip-toe move, the four limited-edition Jackson covers are each as special as the music contained within.

It is more than just a collection of greatest hits; it is a timeline, a history lesson, a journey, an escapade, and a cacophony of rich, textured, vibrant sounds. It is a lifetime of music. And at the same time, Number Ones ushers in a new era for Jackson's unmatchable accomplishments.

Wisdom

Dancing The Dream

Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the creator. Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on. On many occasion when I’m dancing, I’ve felt touched by something sacred. In those moments, I’ve felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists. I become the stars and the moon. I become the lover and the beloved. I become the victor and the vanquished. I become the master and the slave. I become the singer and the song. I become the knower and the known. I keep on dancing and then, it is the eternal dance of creation. The creator and the creation merge into one wholeness of joy.

I keep on dancing and dancing . . . . . and dancing, until there is only . . . . . the dance.

- Michael Jackson

Poem

Breaking Free

All this hysteria, all this commotion
Time, space, energy are just a notion
What we have conceptualized we have created
All those loved, all those hated

Where is the beginning, where's the end
Time's arrow, so difficult to bend
Those broken promises, what they meant
Those love letters, never sent

- Michael Jackson

Killer Lyrics

Heartbreaker

Deceitful eyes, she's got those come get me thighs
She only knows how low that she can go
She speaks the lines that can control my mind
Wherever she goes I know my eyes follow
She blew a kiss, I swear that it was meant
Only for me, then spoke with her body
Her only goal is just to take control
And I can't believe that I can't tell her no

Chorus:
That girl I can't take her
Should have known she was a heartbreaker
That girl I can't take her
Should have seen right through her she's a heartbreaker
That girl I can't take her
Should have seen it coming heartbreaker
That girl I can't take her
Should have seen right through her
She's a heartbreaker
