Can't wait to get it however the Cash Cow is now beginning to MILK for the family.

"Michael Davis, general manager of Universal Motown Enterprises, says the spotlight is on the adolescent Michael Jackson's remarkable voice, which was sometimes overlooked once he became a superstar."


I'll pass! although the spotlight is on MJ, I'll rather support MJ's solo music

Mara   October 6th, 2009 12:11 am ET

Larry I LOVE the picture J5 was HOT back in the day! Love the AFRO's. Alot of memories are attached to J5's music. I am definately going to have to grab some of these just in time for Christmas.

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   October 6th, 2009 12:13 am ET

How very interesting.


Lori - Justice For Michael   October 6th, 2009 12:17 am ET

I am so excited to go back and remember the time....I loved the J5.


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   October 6th, 2009 12:18 am ET

A lot of deals are being cut, and a great deal of money is being made.

All I want to know is: Who really killed Michael, and when will justice be served?

Forget about the movies, concerts, TV shows, book deals, etc.

When is someone going to be held accountable for killing Michael Jackson?


Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 12:19 am ET

Wonderful! Best news all day!

Idzan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia   October 6th, 2009 12:22 am ET

Sincerely I love Michael best when he was Jackson 5.
Loved his songs Ben and I'll Be There.
Really captured the innocence of his boyhood.
Definitely a must-buy for a nostalgic listening.

Patty Anderson   October 6th, 2009 12:24 am ET

This is great just in time for the holidays. I hope they release all unheard music from the J5 and Michael for years to come.
We will buy buy buy and keep Michael's music alive for years to come

Patty Anderson   October 6th, 2009 12:25 am ET

Amen Nicole. How are you? haven't seen you in awhile

Lori - Justice For Michael   October 6th, 2009 12:27 am ET

@Nicole. So true. Let's have some news on the investigation.


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   October 6th, 2009 12:31 am ET

Hi Patty. I'm well, and I hope you are.

You're right, I haven't been on here much.

I want to see some results. Michael's children need to know that their father didn't die in vain. People must be held accountable, and prosecuted for the roles they played in his murder.

Looks like certain individuals are more interested in making money for themselves, rather than getting to the bottom of this tragedy.

I am thoroughly disgusted. Michael's death continues to create financial gain for those who do not deserve it.

I love Michael, but I will not buy anything else until some heads start rolling.

(I mean that both figuratively and literally).


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   October 6th, 2009 12:32 am ET

Hey Lori. How are you tonight?


Lori - Justice For Michael   October 6th, 2009 12:35 am ET

I am fine Nicole, thanks for asking. The full moon is beautiful, it's cold and crisp, the leaves area turning. I love fall. I just can't believe that when this whole mess started it was high summer, and now it's been a whole season and still we know nothing more than we did at the beginning. I wan't to know what happend to Michael... I want to know who is it? Who is responsible?


Patty Anderson   October 6th, 2009 12:36 am ET

Nicole I agree with you completely heads do need to roll and soon, although I feel it's going to be awhile before we here anything. Look how long it took on the Anna Nicole case they just filed charges what 2 weeks ago.
Michaels case has become very complicated because of the different names used and all the people involved.
I'm expecting that pharmacy to take some heat as well that shipped the drug that killed Michael.
I myself am praying for a bombshell right before the movie is release, just a feeling I have.
I will keep buying because Branca is making deals to support the estae and the children.

Lori - Justice For Michael   October 6th, 2009 12:38 am ET

And still no word from our friend Gene, I see. Gene, please come back.


still me just a new name   October 6th, 2009 1:01 am ET

Patty Anderson

I feel it too. I get to thinking...I have my ticket and my day planned out. I get so excited knowing that I will be able to see Michael in "concert" and then, this strange feeling that something is going to happen right before, that is going to throw everyone into a loop. I don't know what it is going to be or even if anything does happen..just a feeling, you know? I am thinking of buying the Christmas album even though I just order a Celtic one !

Cindy   October 6th, 2009 1:01 am ET

I adored Michael and I've bought every album from him, but I'm sorry to me this is just using Michaels death to their advantage. Sorry but it sickens me. Joe Jackson will never quit trying to profit off his kids.

Patty Anderson   October 6th, 2009 1:02 am ET

Oh Nicole there's a new blog It's about Jermaine meet ya there.

Patty Anderson   October 6th, 2009 1:08 am ET

@ Still me
Yes I do know that feeling. Well hopefully people will quit messing with you so you can keep a name this time.

I've had this feeling for awhile now. It's been just way toooooooooo quiet.

Lori - Justice For Michael   October 6th, 2009 1:16 am ET

@Patty ... I have that feeling too..

I can feel it coming in the air tonight...


Patty Anderson   October 6th, 2009 1:21 am ET

I can't put my finger on it Lori but it's there for sure somethings brewing

Lori - Justice For Michael   October 6th, 2009 1:37 am ET

"By the pricking of my thumbs,

still me just a new name   October 6th, 2009 1:44 am ET

Whatever that something is does not frighten me, it like something strange is to come, but I just don't know what. It just doesn't seem like...doom. I just can't put my finger on it.

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 1:50 am ET

hi everyone

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 1:51 am ET

i love to hear the single from michael

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 1:57 am ET

i wish we all coult blog like befor whitout atacking eachother this is not what michael wanted no way

Lynn-IL   October 6th, 2009 2:21 am ET

Hey guys! I was gone for the weekend and was unable to post, but I saw that the blogs were busy and kind of volatile in the last couple of days=( I am really sorry to see Toni and Mariau leave. It is really a shame that people have been attacked for sharing their thoughts. I feel that we are all searching for truth and no one person has the answer that it why it is important for everyone to have open ears, eyes, and most importantly an open mind. Hopefully we will band around Michael's ideals of unity and respect and not let the pressures of this all break us apart!!

Lori - Justice For Michael   October 6th, 2009 2:47 am ET

@Lynn-Il 🙂 How are you tonight? Totally agree with you. Hope all is well.


Lynn-IL   October 6th, 2009 3:05 am ET

@Lori- I'm doing well. I was without computer access for a couple of days so I didn't get to see the blogs until tonight. It took me most of the night to catch up on everything that has been going on!! It seems quiet now though.

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 3:07 am ET

hi lynn and lori
lynn you are so right about the fights

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 3:09 am ET

it is quiet i rally miss the good old days when we where togeter find
some cleus

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 3:11 am ET

this is not what michael wanted

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 3:11 am ET

are you two still here?

Lynn-IL   October 6th, 2009 3:13 am ET

Hey Jacqueline!
It made me so sad to see some of the stuff going on in here in the last couple days=( I'm sure alot of it is rooted in the deep passion that everyone has for their beliefs and of course their allegiances to Michael, but in the end everyone wants the same thing. . .TRUTH!! I pray we find it soon!!!

Lynn-IL   October 6th, 2009 3:15 am ET

I wonder if the others are on that site with the whole hag language thing. I think alot of people go in between the two so maybe they are there now?

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 3:15 am ET

i really hope it
i wish that gene toni and mariau comes back too they have good answers
and we all have to respect eachother

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 3:16 am ET

i dont undre stand any off it i dont like it at all
but i think the dont like the imposters around here

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 3:18 am ET

why not here it started here

Lynn-IL   October 6th, 2009 3:22 am ET

Very true respect is the most important thing!! Like I said before I don't know the answers and I doubt that many people here have a connection to the family or police or someone that has the absolute truth on these issues so all we can do is piece together the bits of truth we do find and keep questioning until we get some answers. I have no reason not to believe someone that says they have known Michael, or are speaking for him or whatever. and even if I question what someone is saying it is there right to do so and not fear attack. Until we have some conclusive evidence and or arrests from LAPD, FBI etc. anything could be the truth if we close our minds to possibility we may find we are closing it to truth.

Lynn-IL   October 6th, 2009 3:22 am ET

Whoa, I got a little long-winded sorry!!

Susan62509   October 6th, 2009 3:25 am ET

12:18 a.m. Nichole are absolutely correct.

Why are these albums being released now? Why weren't they released 10 or 20 years ago? I need someone to convince me that these releases aren't playing off MJ's name and death !!!!!!! Even the written article is playing it up by listening to MJ, not the brothers. Makes me sick.

Lynn-IL   October 6th, 2009 3:30 am ET

Yes I do think the "imposters" rub people the wrong way. but I have two thoughts on that.

The first is if someone doesn't like it, then ignore it and if the imposter is just out for 15 min of fame they will leave when they don't get it.

Secondly, this is the internet. I do not know anything for sure about the people I talk to on here, no one does, anyone can be anybody; and this is a free site open to the whole world to blog on so how do I know that someone who claims to be an insider is not an insider?

What is the point of being rude cause if it is a fake then you just egg them on to continue and if it is for real then you are seriously hurting another human being. But I think that is where the passion comes in. People are passionate about Michael and about defending him and that is good, but everyone should do it from a place of love!!

Lynn-IL   October 6th, 2009 3:31 am ET

Susan- I agree. The day that Michael passed they released a compilation of early material through Itunes. It does seem opportunistic to say the least.

KAY PHX   October 6th, 2009 4:19 am ET


Maria   October 6th, 2009 4:46 am ET

Of course these releases are playing off MJ’s name and death. But this is how business work. 5, 10 or 20 years ago, the demand for such unreleased songs would have been lesser.
Besides, there is the Motown aniversary, which can justify everything. Most Motown artists have searched their vaults or have released new albums for this year's anniversary. If there are unreleased songs in the vaults, let them be released.

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 5:06 am ET

lynn i agree with you all the way
beiing rude is not good makes someone angry

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 5:09 am ET

or sad some come here with good intantions like mariau toni and gene and unbreakeble whe have to respect all of them

Samantha - South Africa   October 6th, 2009 5:46 am ET

I can't wait for the new J5 release but I have to say I agree with MaryR's comment.Had it not been for the events in recent months,I wonder when they were planning on releasing these songs,if ever!

MaryRM   October 6th, 2009 6:42 am ET

What an incredibly appropriate name – I Want You Back!

I've struggled with the ethics of buying J5 and MJ music since Michael died, but I will support his family and I will also support Motown, so bring it on.

Maybe my husband and I can do mainline and background together for the songs on this album too – he'll have to do background – he always gets the mainline lyrics wrong 🙂

Just so everyone notices – I'm MaryRM, MaryR is someone new.

jacqueline\nl   October 6th, 2009 6:47 am ET

hi maryrm how are you

Laura   October 6th, 2009 6:55 am ET

Though I love Michael, I will not be buying any of it. I feel that this is sooooooo wrong!


MaryRM   October 6th, 2009 7:00 am ET

I'm well Jacqueline – and how are you?

I was telling everyone on the blog last night that I had a headache from the Free the Children's Me to We day in Toronto. I was a volunteer but got to see some of the performers. My eardrums nearly split when the Jonas Brother appeared on stage as the surprise guests. 16,000 youth at the Air Canada Centre to learn how to make this world a better place. Speakers like Bobby Kennedy Jr. Hedley wrapped up the day – they really rock! It was soooo good seeing all these kids pumped, I couldn't stop smiling, the energy was so positive. They played at least 5 Michael songs during the lunch and afterward – smooth criminal twice – I haven't heard this much MJ music in public in many years. It was really fabulous. I can't wait to volunteer next year!

Irene   October 6th, 2009 7:05 am ET

DId you guys also read Dr. Klein has no rights to claim the kids..? A judge ruled.

Irene   October 6th, 2009 7:45 am ET

I Joe behind this, you think, guys?
@ Pat:
I agree: It is not MICHAEL. I adored little Michael. But fell in love with adult Michael. Personally, I think its a little inappropriate to put out another J5 album so soon after his death. Why now…?
The same for this Schmuley guy.
Today, just after his death, THE TOPIC IS HOT, so they want to get the most out of it – it seems.
If I were them – all of them – I would have waited a little, if you desperately want ‘to be in it’, feel you have something to say. In a year time from now, it will still sell….. Perhaps not on scale from 1 to 10 as a “9″, but as a “7″. Apparently, other things are more important, than elegancy.
But then again, I am not them, and perhaps I cannot judge. (Its always difficult….!! To form an opinion, I feel!).
One thing I know for sure though, I do love Janet, Elizabeth, Debbie (she is so courageous!), Katherine for staying a little low profile.
I think thats the correct way to go.

Susan62509   October 6th, 2009 8:16 am ET

Mary RM:

Thank you for clarifing that you are not Mary R. I was confused and not sure it was a typo.

The Rolling Stones and Beatles (Paul) also went through their archives last month. Is the music industry hurting due to the recession or does the music industry feel MJ will monopolize the field this year?

denise   October 6th, 2009 9:12 am ET

good morning everyone,

I second that too - MaryRM thanks for clarifying your name, I thought was the same pers.

Lynn-IL - wish the blog would be like how it used to be, more pleasant.

Judie   October 6th, 2009 9:14 am ET

Hi everyone,

denise IHUG you hag lol

Guys what happened to mariu?

Yoda where are you?

Susan62509   October 6th, 2009 9:27 am ET

This was posted in the media Sept. 16:
Jackson homicide case will be presented to the L.A. County District Attorney in 3 to 4 weeks.
We are now in the 3rd week. Hopefully something will come forth shortly.

denise   October 6th, 2009 9:35 am ET

Hey Judie, hag are you today? I saw Toni's posts but me2 I would like to know what happened to Mariau. IHUG2

Anne   October 6th, 2009 9:39 am ET

MaryRM The concert sounds awesome! Thanks for sharing. I will try to find your posts to read from last night.

This album is made up of songs that were not good enough to be released back in the heydey of the Jackson 5. Motown is just hoping people want to buy all things MJ. It is not Joe behind it. The Jackson family got very little money from albums released by Motown.

I have been patient all along assuming that justice would be served but now it is starting to feel like if they had the goods on Murray they would have arrested him already. Maybe it is because they are going to charge him with several crimes related to prescribing not just manslaughter. If it doesn't happen by Oct 28, I will think that it never will happen.

Lora Ottawa Canada   October 6th, 2009 9:41 am ET

Hi all

Back from my 3 week holiday to Vancouver Island and not happy to see that some regular, faithful and positibe bloggers are gone! What happened!

Still no justice for Michael damn!

Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   October 6th, 2009 9:43 am ET

Jacqueline, just for the record, I don't think Mariau is staying away because of me. We don't click together but after our hudge clash we got on speaking terms again (for 5 minutes) after I told her my cat is on FB. She said she liked it, so I guess the last time she was here we talked.

Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   October 6th, 2009 9:45 am ET

Mary RM, I like what you said about the name of the album.

Patty Anderson   October 6th, 2009 9:50 am ET

Welcome back Lora how was you venture sown the highway

Hi Eli how are you I haven't seen you in a long time.

Lora Ottawa Canada   October 6th, 2009 9:50 am ET

Hey Mary RM

It is a good title....sad in a way.....we all want him back!

Did everyone get their movie tickets?

Lora Ottawa Canada   October 6th, 2009 9:52 am ET

Hey Patty

Our adventure on the highway was made so much fun while listening to MJ cd's the whole husband even got in the groove and kept Woo Hooing with MJ songs.....hillarious!

Maria   October 6th, 2009 9:53 am ET

@ Susan: the music industry is hurting, and it's hurting badly.
From Rolling Stones – Oct 5:

Album sales are down 11.1 percent in the third quarter of 2009 compared to the same period last year, Reuters reports based on figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan. That decline comes even with the influx of sales after Michael Jackson’s death and the release of the Beatles remasters, as both artists’ respective catalogs have combined for about 6.3 million in sales this quarter. Even with the unexpected push from the catalog albums, total sales are still down 13.9 percent from 2008, a year which itself saw its sales drop 14 percent compared to 2007. If the trend continues, this will mark the eighth time in nine years that the record industry has seen a decline.

According to Reuters, 2009’s biggest seller so far has been Michael Jackson’s Number Ones compilation, which sold 1.8 million copies since the King of Pop’s death on June 25th. Sluggish sales can’t be blamed on a lack of marquee releases, though, as artists who have generally gone multiplatinum in the past — like Green Day, Eminem, Dave Matthews Band and U2 — have all put out high-profile releases this year. Eminem’s Relapse has lead the charge with 1.4 million copies since its release in May. After 30 weeks on the Billboard chart, U2’s No Line on the Horizon reached platinum two weeks ago, while Green Day’s 21st Century Breakdown and DMB’s Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King have yet to pass the million copies sold mark.

Welcome back, how was BC??

Lora Ottawa Canada   October 6th, 2009 9:57 am ET


BC was great.....the weather sun, sun back to rain rain rain!

Vancouver Island is a very nice island with lots to do if you want to hike and walk long sandy beaches on the west coast.........the trees in the rain forest are humoungous!!!! (is that a word LOL)

We missed you. BC is beautiful isn't it...I enjoyed my visit there2. btw I will add "Humoungous" to my post-its.

Lora Ottawa Canada   October 6th, 2009 10:06 am ET

Thanks Denise

Planning my next trip....hopefully California! for next spring!

I have missed a lot of blogging going through the previous articles......Michael is still up there in the news.....don't think it will stop anytime soon either!

Make sure you include Arizona, the Grand Canyon is breathtaking. Oh you might want to include Vegas2 check out lindfromnewyork's posts [@Jermaine's blog].

Maureen (UK) -

Thanks for the posts. MJ is indeed the "King of Pop", the CDs will be flying off the shelves.

Patty Anderson   October 6th, 2009 10:24 am ET

Maureen thanks for that. He's gonna top everyone out there
But why do they have to call him Jacko his name is Michael!!

Victoria J   October 6th, 2009 10:24 am ET

@ Anne at 9:39 a.m.

I hope you are right about the Jacksons. I am always leery of their ulterior motives because their stories/comments never quite add up for me. My gut feeling is that the family no longer has the financial support of Michael and they need to make money. I won't hold that against them, but I will not participate in adding money to their pockets with a purchase of this.

I read you all discussing that Michael and Jermaine were at odds but they made up years ago. What was that about?

Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   October 6th, 2009 10:26 am ET

Hi Patty, I have been to Italy. I am still in Holland now.

Maureen (UK)   October 6th, 2009 10:41 am ET

Hi Denise, Patty, Lora, Victoria, Maria, Eli & All. 🙂

Have you all seen the J5 tribute Michael used to do in his concerts e.g. Live in Bucharest ? Loved the J5 dance (not to mention the rest).

Patty Anderson   October 6th, 2009 10:46 am ET

Well it's good to see you Eli
Hi Maureen. Thanks for the article on the other blog. He will top everyone out there.. But like I said, Why do they have to call him Jacko? His name is Michael

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 10:46 am ET

I love that Bucharest DVD

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 10:49 am ET

Is the This is it single only going to be avaialble on ITunes? hope not

Lora Ottawa Canada   October 6th, 2009 10:49 am ET

Hi Maureen

Yes did see that MJ acknowledge his brothers during the concert and I think I saw another time also where he did the same thing. So shows that they were close even though the media says otherwise!

Anne   October 6th, 2009 10:50 am ET

Celebrities seem to cash in on any and all publicity personal or professional whether it is positive or negative. It is just sad to think it would happen after a tragic death. But everyone is doing it to MJ – everyone.

If any footage from his funeral shows up on that A&E Jackson family show, that will be very telling about the family.

Clearly Latoya and Jermaine have received tv show offers because of their recent exposure after MJ's death.

Live from Bucharest is absolutely awesome! Everyone should own it.

Lora Ottawa Canada   October 6th, 2009 10:51 am ET

Have to go for garden needs a clean up the leaves are falling!!!!

Catch up later!


denise   October 6th, 2009 10:52 am ET

Maureen (UK) - I know what you mean, especially MJ way 2cute and so charming.

Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   October 6th, 2009 11:03 am ET

Linda, wait till you see Bad from Yokahama!

Anne   October 6th, 2009 11:12 am ET

I wish Sony Epic would remaster and and rerelease some MJs music video dvds especially the ones that are not readily available like "Another Part of Me."

Maureen (UK)   October 6th, 2009 11:13 am ET

I've just bought Live in Japan. Is that the same as the Yokohama DVD you mentioned ?
Did you have a good hol in Italy ? My husband is Italian.

Anne   October 6th, 2009 11:18 am ET

There is a Bad Tour Live from Japan from amazon and a Bad Tour Live from Australia from that I am trying to decide which to get. I have the one from Japan from netflix. At one point they mention Yokohama.

Victoria J   October 6th, 2009 11:21 am ET


Have you all seen the J5 tribute Michael used to do in his concerts e.g. Live in Bucharest ? Loved the J5 dance (not to mention the rest).

Yes, I have seen this and that is sooooooo Michael. Let me just say that families squabble all the time and they make up all the time. I don't doubt the Jacksons' are not like any other typical family except that they grew up in the spotlight and Michael (from the J5) went on to continue to shine very, very bright. I just wish they had laid a bit lower during the months after Michael's death. I also understand how "working the media" is in their blood for their own gain – I think this is true of most celebrities.


I also agree with you about A&E and the funeral. I said it way back and I'll say it again...the funeral should have been private. I was appalled with the picture feedback. I actually wonder if this may have been why Katherine was so upset...that she had a change of heart about having that there knowing Michael had a private life and a public life. Just speculation on my part.

Maureen (UK)   October 6th, 2009 11:22 am ET

Anne-I think mine must be the Yokahama one, as there's a reference on the back. I'll watch it tonight !

Maria   October 6th, 2009 11:25 am ET

Most probably Stringer was speaking about the past fiscal year.
Now it seems the big restructuring was already done, because they talk about smaller profits, not about net losses.

Sept 23 (Chicago Tribune):
Howard Stringer, chairman and CEO of Sony's U.S. operations, changed some senior managers this year to put greater emphasis on cost cutting and software. Consensus rating on Sony stock from analysts is "buy," according to Thomson Reuters, consisting of one "strong buy," two "buys" and one "hold."

Sony earnings are expected to decline 17 percent in the fiscal year ending in March and rise 187 percent the following fiscal year.

Anne   October 6th, 2009 11:34 am ET

psygno83 has the whole Live from Yokohama concert on her page on You Tube. I sure wish I could download all that. The picture quality is the best available with the lastest technology.

Maureen (UK)   October 6th, 2009 11:49 am ET

Maria, thanks, I'm not sure but I suppose all sectors of Sony have some impact overall on the company as a whole, when it comes to profit or lack of it.
I was thinking about how they followed Michael around (like circling vultures) to pressurise him into selling/ borrowing to keep the catalogues.
So will I buy a Sony TV, DVD, etc. next time I need one ? It would probably effect too many people at the end of the line e.g. Like the workers in the factory in France, (post above).

The DVD I've got is a 1997 Greatest hits performance, in Yokahama. Is this the one on youtube ?

Maureen (UK)   October 6th, 2009 12:02 pm ET

Victoria J
I think they got on well especially when as you say, they were in the spotlight so much. Most bands squabble & fall out. Oasis (brothers), The Beatles, Queen, in fact not many stay together.

Anne   October 6th, 2009 12:04 pm ET

I think they are two different dvds. The Live from Japan was in Sept and the LIve from Yokohama was in January. Yes I think that is the one on you tube. It looks like it has better picture quality.

Anne   October 6th, 2009 12:10 pm ET

I have been waiting for lots of dvds to be released from live concerts and now I am thinking that it is not happening because they are available for free on file sharing websites. People are just downloading them off the internet. : (

Victoria J   October 6th, 2009 12:11 pm ET

@Maureen (UK)

a very good point @ 12:02 pm. I don't think Michael ever forgot from whence he came. Those early years of his included 4 other siblings. I am sure they were all quite close.

Thanks for keeping me level headed. :o)

Maureen (UK)   October 6th, 2009 12:22 pm ET

The DVD I got is from September 1987, Yokahama, Greatest hits Performance. Fingers crossed, I'll watch it tonight & let you know tomorrow what it's like.

Victoria J
I wish I could keep myself level headed 🙂

Maureen (UK)   October 6th, 2009 12:25 pm ET

I read on a blog recently that Michael still held the rights to some live concerts that haven't been released. Not sure who posted it.

That would really make him happy for sure!

Anne   October 6th, 2009 12:31 pm ET

As the less well off sibling of a very rich and famous brother, life does not always seem fair. I am sure Latoya's infamous statement about the checks was because he was giving away so much money to sick children and orphanages that she herself may have thought she deserved.

That is a great point! He could get into the Guiness Book again. How great would that be! I am also hoping for an Oscar nom for the soundtrack to This Is It! Wouldn't that be awesome?

One of 9 ! Where are you in line, michael was the 2nd youngest. Do you know which brother looks like Michael in some of the group photos. He looks similar in age.

MourningMJ   October 6th, 2009 12:55 pm ET


I just visited This-is-not-it dot com. I am absolutely appauled. You should see this side by side picture of Michael- One from 1997 (gold pants Linda) and one taken shortly before he died- I had to wonder if it was the same person- it is. It's our Michael. I think it's worth the 15 minutes to read about it. I believe this article. IT MAKES SENSE.

He took a total 360 after they announced it a homicide. It was just sickening some of the things he use to say about Michael and us bloggers
OMG you would've had a hay day with him. Now he hardly ever posts. He claims he's a lawyer

Ok Maureen. yeah I just saw that a bit ago. Thanks

Anne   October 6th, 2009 1:54 pm ET

In March when he got out of the van to go into make the This Is It announcement he was walking abnormally like he was wearing extra large boots that did not fit. Then he looked towards the golf cart like he wanted to get in it instead of having to walk. He was not walking normally. His legs must have been weak from inactivity. I would like to know why he was going around in a wheelchair in pjs last fall in Las Vegas?

MourningMJ   October 6th, 2009 1:56 pm ET

Patty, Hi, My haggies have mentioned Gerald Holly to me and what a jerk he was. I'm still confused though- he was FOR Mike and then took a 360 after the homicide announcement or the other way around? I'm thinking the other way around. So, he claims he is a lawyer huh? Sounds as if he alredy prosecuted him in this blog. Also, Patty, go to this-is-it dot com. Go to the testimonies, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page- there you will find a sickly side by side picture of Michael- It's absolutely crippling to look at- I'm still in awe. I'm still saying "WTF!?"

@LINDA- Hi Lin. I absolutely am convinced that this picture is in no way photoshopped. This was posted by genuinely concerned fans/friends in Michael's life who have ultimately and absolutely nothing at all to gain or lose by posting this picture and their accounts with Michael. Multiple testimonies not only in this -is -not -it but other accounts after his death support this entirely. I'm enraged and outraged that this human being, this person was considered nothing but a money machine. Linda, Michael was literally dying before their eyes- I mean literally dying. What is wrong with these people? I am convinced without a shadow of a doubt, CONVINCED that the autopsy reported "leaked" is completely fraudgelent. If it comes out otherwise, then clearly this is indeed nothing short of a massive cover up by the legal authorities to protect the integrity of the investigation. THEY KNOW something they do NOT want the public to know. That includes us Michael fans. 136 pounds and no other "illegal or legal drugs found in his system". Yeah, I'm not interested in that bridge, can you sell me another one?

@MAUREEN- in the beautiful UK-
Maureen- I attempted to go back and failed again at the link you gave me but I successfully viewed the this-is-not-it link today. Again, I am stunned to witness this slave to AEG literally die before their eyes. And I'm left to wonder if this is a poor, miserable attempt to cover up AEG's gross negligence in the treatment of our Michael, or, if they really believe that how he was treated was..... acceptable. They can't believe that, can they? No, that's just not possible. I'm stunned, Maureen. Usually, I can express myself and communicate very effectively. I cannot now. I'm, for the first time..... well, speechless. Unbeliebable.

Victoria J   October 6th, 2009 2:01 pm ET

I went to the This Is Not It website briefly to look only at the pictures per Anne's suggestion. I believe someone posted those long letters this past weekend? I did not take the opportunity to read the letters – at work on the site today. :o)!

This is what I have been seeing all along. Michael was much thinner before the gold pants days, too, but the difference...he looked healthy. These pictures on the This is Not It are heart breaking. This is why I have been did anyone near him ignore this?

Anne   October 6th, 2009 2:02 pm ET

Well I found a site that said he was doing the wheelchair because it was a disguise. There are plenty of other photos of him doing perfectly normal things last fall in Las Vegas.

Anne   October 6th, 2009 2:08 pm ET

Who owns the AP? Is Sony is powerful enough to control the AP? They said his weight in 2003 was #120.

I have been watching In the Closet every night on the short films dvd. It also has a short part of the making of the video. I love it because his hair is pulled back and you can see his whole beautiful face and he only has on the t shirt.

Ioana - Romania   October 6th, 2009 2:12 pm ET

Jan   October 6th, 2009 2:13 pm ET

MourningMJ   October 6th, 2009 2:15 pm ET


Great question (Regarding Sony/AP) No, Sony did not own AP. I didn't know the answer so I went straight to the source: AP THEMSELVES. This is posted on their website:
The Associated Press is a not-for-profit cooperative, which means it is owned by its 1,500 U.S. daily newspaper members. They elect a board of directors that directs the cooperative.

Yep- THAT EXPLAINS alot. 1,500 news sources? yeah- which one is credible?
Additionally, I have said this ALL along- When Michael was arrested in 2003, His weight WAS 120 according to the "official legal arrest report". When did Michael GAIN almost 20 pounds in the past 5 years?
HE DIDN'T. The autopsy is a LIE. Why are so many people celebrating the autopsy results? What the hell are they celebrating? He's dead.
ihmj xoxo

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 3:00 pm ET

AHHH!!!! This whole thing is so confusing. He is much thinner now for sure...but he admitted that.

His style is so elegant though. Why can't more men take a tip from Michael and get some style. ELEGANT!

We need justice! Murray needs to go down for this. He overdosed the man and failed to notice he stopped breathing because he was making phone calls. I have never heard of such malpractice and negligence. It is completely shocking. Any doc in their right mind would NOT use that drug and leave a patient alone. He has to pay for this TERRIBLE and DEADLY judgement.

Gosh Michael...come back!

Stu,Hungary   October 6th, 2009 3:00 pm ET

Where do you girls see,he was look good in march?I think,he was same thin.

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 3:02 pm ET

I know Michael adored his fans....but these followers are taking it to the next level. I know it's out of love for him. It just seems stalkerish. Do they realize they are kind of stalkers? I would be a little afraid of them.

Samantha - South Africa   October 6th, 2009 3:03 pm ET

Hi Stu & Marmoura

Samantha - South Africa   October 6th, 2009 3:07 pm ET


A friend who is also a fan and I were talking earlier about it.I told her that even though I would've loved to have hung out with Michael,I don't think I'd wanna follow him everyday from 5pm – 9pm,that's kind of crazy and plus,I have a life and things to do too.

I appreciate the fact that the fans have shared their testimonies but does anyone know if these people had lives that they had so much time on their hands???

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 3:08 pm ET

stu-me too–I hardly recognized Michael in March– and after seeing that side by side picture–I wanted to cry-MY GOD-I loved Michael but he looks skeletal -like there is no meat on him-Like if you hugged him he would break in two-maybe it's a bad shot–but he still doesn't look like he is in great shape to me.

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 3:10 pm ET

but–in the previews even though he looks thin-he looks a little stronger–I don't know what the hell is going? which one is real and which one is fake? I don't know?

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 3:11 pm ET

Hi Samantha! yeah...i thought that to be strange. it's not healthy for those people, that level of obsession. Not that they would do anything to him, but it's just scary and kind of worshiping. makes me kind of worry about their sanity and mental health.

And frankly, that isn't healthy for Michael to be followed around.

Samantha - South Africa   October 6th, 2009 3:11 pm ET


The camera is a form of deception,nothing is what it seems.

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 3:14 pm ET

well Michael didn't seem to mind–as he use to go out and talk to them and buy them dinner. I am not saying that is something I would do.

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 3:16 pm ET

the camera usually adds weight to you–that is why the actresses have to be so thin. Like I said he looks better in the previews–like maybe he added a little weight.

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 3:18 pm ET

he looks a little better–but he still looks thin.

Stu,Hungary   October 6th, 2009 3:18 pm ET

Exactly Linda,thats why somany peaples thoughd,it was not Michael.I think,hes nurves got realy fu...d in this lost few years.

Stu,Hungary   October 6th, 2009 3:20 pm ET

I think,he look exactly the same in march and juni.

Samantha - South Africa   October 6th, 2009 3:21 pm ET


I actually meant to state that I meant as in relation to the previews and I know that the camera adds on at least 10 pounds but that's exactly what I mean!Can you imagine just how thin Michael was in person during the filming of this footage?

lex   October 6th, 2009 3:28 pm ET

i think michael looked his skinniest in the movie previews

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 3:29 pm ET

That's true Linda. He was so nice!

If I end up being famous one day lol,I'd love to get to know my fans too but I would only allow 2-3 hours each week for them to join me.


Hey,how are you?

Anne   October 6th, 2009 3:38 pm ET

He was also very lonely.
It must have been very heartbreaking for him to leave his beloved Neverland after it was tainted by the raid. In the Private Home Movies he said it is him and he would never leave or sell it. It must have been devastating to him for it to never be the same again.

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 3:38 pm ET

Samantha....yes....then they would have to go home and spend time with their people.

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 3:39 pm ET

I understand that Michael was older and that his body is not going to look the same as it did when he was in his 30's and I also understand that he had not toured in along time and was slowly building up to it as Kenny Ortega said right after Michael's death- but even as 50 year old -Michael was too thin–Even as a dancer-Michael was too thin–

lex   October 6th, 2009 3:40 pm ET

As for Kenny,well I thought he was one of the good guys but given the recent revelations,he knew that Michael had a problem and saw first firsthand yet he did NOT do anything!!!

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 3:53 pm ET

Stu–is it –come together

MourningMJ   October 6th, 2009 3:53 pm ET


Linda- I know you stated in the previews he look so good- my god, of course he does. However, I did read the entire contents of this-is-not-it. It was stated that over 110 hours of footage, they cut the best 2 hours- where is not so frail and thin- (most likely at the beginning of rehearsals). Additionally- did you read where he wore 2 and 3 shirts and jackets during rehearsals to camoflouge his frame? Of course he did- I did the research of course of This Is It photos- He is wearing lots of layers. Something not necessarily recognizable until it is pointed out to you. Of course this makes sense- this-is-not-it fans/friends demonstrate complete dedication and loyalty to Michael; they posted their testimonies, their pictures with him, the fruitless letters begging him to get help- there is no demonstration of ulterior motives. I had to ask myself- 1.) What do they have to gain/lose by advertising such alarming and, to some, "contraversial" information? 2.) Is what they are saying making sense? Answers: 1.)– Nothing to lose or gain. They clearly demonstrate an indifferent opinion- By the discription of their message- they just are requesting that we look at This Is It objectively. They are not suggestive nor do they try to influece opinion. They state what is in the movie, and simply, what is not. Answer: 2.) Of course this makes sense. All of his behaviors leading up to his death, his actual death, and the suspicious behavior, the cause of death, the evidence found in his home, and the timely investigation leads me to believe that Michael was indeed very ill and fragile, under the influence for a majority of the last days of his life, under incredible pressure to meet deadlines he could not possibly ( or NO ONE for that matter) committ to, and his poor heart just broke. Permanantely.
** Additionally, the 02 announcement was the beginning of the end. Michael is clearly under the influence. He was unprepared for the announcement, could not complete a sentence without struggle, paused many times and just laughed inappropriately without even speaking a word** This is very true and this is NOT the Michael that we know. The 02 announcement is available all over- please review and study it. Why did his parents choose to ignore their son's silent plea for help? Again, a redundant question. Of course they knew. The Michael on this London 02 stage was absolutely not the same Michael who was moonwalking across the stage 26 years ago at Motown 25. His mind, his body and his poor soul.

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 4:04 pm ET

I am not saying Kenny Ortega wasn't a good guy-it would have been up to Michael's family. When I say his family I mean his father, brothers, sisters, I don't include his mother because-I really don't think she was made aware of what was going on-just my opinion-because I refuse to believe if his mother knew about it she would not find a way to get through to Michael.

Anne   October 6th, 2009 4:06 pm ET

I wonder how much of the 2 hour movie he will actually be in. Some of it may be interviews with other people.Kenny should have known better than anybody how he was doing since he knew him so well working on their other tours with him.

I wonder what he was like in May at that 60th anniversary party.

Had it not been for the Gay Bait Klein and Quacker jack box Murray he would still be here. All the enablers

Maria   October 6th, 2009 4:18 pm ET

Re strictly the question of his weight:

Having looked with all my attention at all the pics from 2009 posted on mjjpictures and other sites, I was not surprised by what these fans say. I like skinny people, but I felt worried by his appearance and mostly by the fact that he always looked somehow lost and confused, even when he was smiling (at the O2 conference too).

And still, there were people (fans) who saw the same pics (from February, March, May or June) and said he looked "terrific" and "wonderful". The beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder.

So I may seem absurd, but I believe BOTH Unbreakable and the TINI "followers". She didn't pay attention to his frame (BUT she said his face was hardly recognizable, compared to the '90s) because she saw him at work – energetic, creative, in control about his work and willing to do his Dome project. In contrast, the "followers" had the occasion to see him in a lack of confidence mode and sometimes under the influence of drugs. And yes, drugs can melt your body and kill your appetite.

Now I'm gonna say again what I said to Céline in other blog, when she wondered if the fans' letters only just put more stress and pressure on MJ by warning him about his health:

Usually, when someone’s health deteriorates because of stress, physical exhaustion or drugs, he or she is the first to realize what is happening, and if he or she doesn’t decide to act, then all the others’ advices and complaints and friendly threats are either useless or annoying and stressful.

I remember that in May he was the one who told the fans he’s not a big eater (as if he wanted to apologize or to prevent any further questions on him being skinny). Then Lou Ferrigno said MJ tried to avoid tough physical training, saying he didn’t want to build muscles, but to remain slim. Even if Ferrigno is lying, I have the impression that MJ’s idea of being slim was slightly different from what we understand by “slim”.

If he was indeed embarrassed or worried about his own weight, then he would have avoided wearing tight clothes. But what I saw in most pictures from 2009 (when he was exiting the doctor’s office, for example) and in the TII trailer pictures is a man who wears tight clothes because he wants to. He would have avoided that Balmain red jacket or those red/orange tight trousers if he was worried or ashamed by his weight.

Not to throw gas on the fire, but I read a something online today that was written a few months ago where someone speculated that AEG realized he was not going to be able to do the the shows and ...

marguerite   October 6th, 2009 4:39 pm ET

It is said that when you dance you loose weight but also gain muscle.

lola   October 6th, 2009 4:39 pm ET

I am sure all those letters from the "followers" are accurate. Someone posted (TXmom) on another blog "reports from The Examiner." They were trashing Michael at the This is It rehearsal. They were ugly and incredibly mean, however, I think they were true regarding him vomiting, looking sickly, forgetting the words to songs, looking sickly, even breaking down and crying. Actually AEG own the newspaper, which is strange. This article contradicts AEG's claims how well Michael was doing at the rehearsals.

Anne   October 6th, 2009 4:40 pm ET

I found it. I was wrong it doesn't say they were sure, it says it was a theory.

Another guest said that Michael Jackson had been missing rehearsals. Geraldo Rivera discussed the theory that Michael Jackson had been murdered, because backers of his 50-concert tour finally realized that he would not be able to hold up his end of the deal, due to physical frailty (weighing 112 pounds) and missing rehearsals. So to get their money back, perhaps someone within the concert-backing circle devised a plan to murder Michael Jackson.

When I saw the new topic of the day, I thought of TI when he/she came around midsummer, TI said with the time and particularly this FALL it would be more and more obvious it's a publicity ... The movie, This Is It single, Jakson 5 single...

If it's not... it looks like it! LOL

Just an observation, don't state anything...

BUT! It's a good news!!!!!

marguerite   October 6th, 2009 4:43 pm ET

If you had all the stress he had wouldn't you break down and cry and yes even vomit. Stress plays he** wiuth the body. People seem to forget he is human as well.

Patty Anderson   October 6th, 2009 4:46 pm ET

You are so right Marguerite. That stress is why he wasn't eating sleeping all of the above. It's just unbelieveablewhat stress does to the human body

Sandy-Houston   October 6th, 2009 4:47 pm ET

This is on my calendar here at work..I just noticed
"Masquerading as a normal person day after day is Exhausting."
So don't even try to be sane! 🙂

(Following my comment at 4:18 pm)

Where I stop believing the "followers" is where they try to suggest that AEG or Sony had a plan to kill him if he doesn't agree or cannot do 50 shows and that in the process they have controlled and manipulated him like you do with a puppet.

I think nobody could force him to do anything. He had debts, had several offers since 2006 to do a comeback residency or a series of shows (Jack Wishna, AEG, Colony, Allgood and again AEG) and he chose the most profitable and the most spectacular one – the O2 residency. I firmly believe he was convinced he can do the shows and wanted to do his very best, for the fans, for his children, for his self-respect and for paying his debts.

I also think neither AEG, nor MJ had imagined that the "over 31 shows, according to tickets demand" clause will lead to 50 shows. But it can't be true that he agreed only to 10 shows, and I say that even if I hadn't read the contract posted by Radaronline. MJ knew very well that nobody invests "north of $20 million" (Randy Phillips) in all that spectacular technology only for 10 shows.

I also read various articles saying in fact he wasn't supposed to actually sing a lot (thanks to the O2 playback installation) and most of the dancing was supposed to be done by the dancers, this being the reason why he accepted to do at least 31 shows and such a tight schedule, for a start.

But there is no way AEG didn't realize MJ's increasing stress and panic about the shows, about insomnia, drugs and weight loss. By the way, I wait impatiently what the police will say about the medical examination done by David Slavit.

AEG and Tohme are to blame for failing to protect their investment and for having such a cynical 1950 mentality – "OK, we know he has some health problems, maybe some addiction problems, but if he takes the appropriate drugs, he can make it – we know he did it in the past, his doctors know better how – it will be another win-win situation".

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 4:54 pm ET

Oh my gosh Patty!!! WOW>>>> it is hot in here!!! Phew! I need to turn a fan on. Dirty Diana baby!

he is itty bitty here as well. look how tiny his pants are....looks the same as in This is It rehearsal footage. but...the HIStory pics they are comparing to, yes, he had put on some weight at that time.

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 5:01 pm ET

–yes you do lose weight when you dance and you build muscle-but when you think that the camera adds weight to you–Michael was too thin-think about other dancers-look at photos of Gregory Hines before he passed away–he was a dancer he didn not look rail thin-I am saying the people around Michael should have realized-It would have been much better for them to forcibly get him into some kind of treatment to help him getter than he would still be around. It really saddens me when I look at Michael in the pictures--he withered down to practically nothing–Stress does do that you I agree-but you mean the people around him did not see that. I hardly recognize Michael.

Luda   October 6th, 2009 5:02 pm ET

The picture of 1997 on the This-Is-not-It dot com site:
His legs... it is just muscles... Lovely! LOL

but the 2009 picture.... so sad....and eerie...

lola   October 6th, 2009 5:03 pm ET

Read those articles in the Examiner. They were so sad, but read through the ugliness, to realize what Mj was going through during the rehearsals.....and I am sure if MJ ever read this article back then it would certainly have killed him. No way was he going to complete the rehearsals, let alone do 50 was very clear.

Eli, Jerusalem/Israel   October 6th, 2009 5:08 pm ET


Would it be possible Rivera saying something might have went wrong after they realized he could not perform the shows?

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 5:11 pm ET

Luda-yes–huge difference

Michael always had a Gorgeous Lean Body–He does not look that way in those pictures; not to me.

Michael Jackson is about to break another record – Most Exploited Star! I'll wait for SONY to bring out previous unrelease music from MJ. It will be more current and will only be of MJ. I am not about to start supporting J4 from 40 years ago.

Judie   October 6th, 2009 5:16 pm ET

Usually, when someone’s health deteriorates because of stress, physical exhaustion or drugs, he or she is the first to realize what is happening, and if he or she doesn’t decide to act, then all the others’ advices and complaints and friendly threats are either useless or annoying and stressful.

I agree 100%, knowing that this is happening to you and there is not much you can do to help yourself it becomes even worse..

He just needed to find the right people to help him with it.

@ Eli at 3:19 p.m

Thank you for sharing The Huffington Post article. I recommend everyone read it. It is insightful and poignant and it is heartbreaking that Michael had to leave this world this way.

We must embrace each other and brace ourselves for what may come out of the investigation.

Anne   October 6th, 2009 5:22 pm ET

I think it was a guest on his show. But yes I think that is what they were implying. I think it was pretty early on and might be why AEG was so sensitive to criticism. But sometimes the most far fetched unbelievable things turn out to be true.

Judie   October 6th, 2009 5:26 pm ET

Hey bbff hag Lori IHUG,

Let's give Gene one more week...Then we go looking for him...gather up the gang and we'll be off.

I suggest that we appoint Patty as team chef. This is a volunteer mission. The team is assembled and on standby waiting for their warning order.

@Sandy – Houston - thank goodness for that quote
“Masquerading as a normal person day after day is Exhausting.”
I am just going to be my self now ... I can feel the energy returning.

@The Informer and **mj** - we are awaiting further instructions.... 🙂

Now comes the rumors that Michael was refusing to do the shows and wanted to disappear.

So many rumors and so many theorys. As well as so many questions not answered.

irene   October 6th, 2009 6:36 pm ET

Hi Mourningmj,

Gerald Jolly, was very very negative, against Michael.
Later he changed his tone. But – as far as Im correct – he was being IRONICAL and CYNICAL. It was ridiculous. He was NOT serious, just mocking us, making fun. I will look it up in my file :-D. And let you know.

Ps. If I missed some comments of "him", perhaps it was not him..? But someone who got back at him, by taking over his name? 😉

Barbara   October 6th, 2009 6:40 pm ET

**mj** I am so pleased you came back.

Will the movie give us clues about why your death had to be staged?

I also think you should have had a part in Rockwell's video, although Lori and I think that werewolf head hanging on the wall was the same one used in Thriller. Even so-it's not the same as seeing you.

Give my best to Rockwell either way.

I look forward to hearing back from you.

Love you Michael ♔

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 6:44 pm ET

MourningMJ & Irene –

I remember the Gerald Jolly posts. Yes, he was ranting in the beginning and very negative. Then, Mariau (I think) called him out and basically said that he needs to admit he was here because he too was a MJ fan.

He finally admitted it – that his real anger came from the fact that he felt let down by MJ using drugs and disrespecting his life/career/role model status.

Then, his tone changed and we welcomed him. It was good!

ps. sorry Mariau if that wasn't you...i thought it was. Whoever it was did a great job!!

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 6:45 pm ET

i am so in the dark about the Rockwell references. who is rockwell? please excuse my ignorance if this is something i should know.

irene   October 6th, 2009 6:47 pm ET

October 6th, 2009 3:07 pm ET

@ Samantha.

I agree, a bit too much.... those fans.

Was Michael really thinner than how he looked in March..? I thought he looked frail there. (The walk, indeed). He looked thin ever since 2004.
But was it anorexic, or anything.....? Im not sure.....
Theres such a grey area between being thin and being too thin....

He did say several times: "I dont eat, when I dont feel well..".

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 6:47 pm ET

One more thing about Gerald Jolly – he did have some very interesting legal facts to share with all of us. I wish he would come back and blog again.

Gerald Jolly, no excuse. Making fun about how Joe raped him *there*.... among 10000 others things. That he wanted to burn michaels body, and feed his bones to dogs..:

HE should have himself checked out, and not bother us. He should be ashamed of himself, and stay as far away as possible.

**mj** ok, please tell us something what we'll see in This is it movie or part lyrics of "This is it" song

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 7:11 pm ET

what is it about MJs voice that NEVER gets old? It's like I could listen to him sing all day and not feel like i need to change the channel.

I bought a book by his sound Engineer Bruce Swedien and it is fascinating. He talks about the process he used to record Michael to get that layered sound. Unlike most music out there – MJs records are always incredibly balanced in terms of sound. From the verses to the chorus to even the climax of the song, you feel every note and layer to the music. It's amazing. Such talent!

Barbara   October 6th, 2009 7:13 pm ET

Glad you enjoyed it! One of those little gems from the eighties that has probably been forgotton by many.

Love you Michael ♔

irene   October 6th, 2009 7:14 pm ET

I DO like La Toya when she speaks. I must admit that. She really cares.
I DO like Jermaine when he speaks. He cares too. And he DID stand by Michael many times, stood up for publicly in the last couple of years.

In the end, I have an 'ok' feeling about them, and I think theyre genuine. But they're just not so 'refined' (?). And perhaps not that intelligent. I really believe that. Some things are just not 'appropriate' and a bit 'stupid'. They put soooo much accent on THEMSELVES. (While, it is about MICHAEL).

I think thats what it is, they dont have the 'class' and the 'developedness' (?) Michael had. Michael was a WISE gentleman.
I mean, the real life soap – come on.. The photoshoot a few days ago – come on.... Aaaall the interviews... I mean, its a bit embarassing.

They seek for the Lime light THEMSELVES. (With regard to certain complaints how the media address them).

irene   October 6th, 2009 7:16 pm ET

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 7:17 pm ET

MourningMJ and Irene

Yeah, Irene, after you referenced those old posts about how nasty GJ was I got a sick feeling in my stomach. I forgot how bad that was. I was really hung up on the fact that he changed his ways and I think he said he was sorry to all of us. – i could be wrong though.

All i could see was the revelation....

you are right: hurting people hurt others. Michael doesn't deserve any of that.

Bad News Mounting For Dr. Murray

MJ(5-10-09) According to TMZ, it has now been reported that the Propofol, which has been identified as the cause of Michael Jackson's death, was sent repeatedly to an apartment in Santa Monica where the girlfriend of Dr. Conrad Murray lived.

Murray, who is the main target of federal and state police investigation into the death, arranged for a Las Vegas pharmacy, Applied Pharmacy, to deliver a steady supply of Propofol to his girlfriend's Santa Monica apartment. Allegedly, Murray had the Propofol sent via Fed Ex to his girlfriend, Nicole Alvarez, who is also the mother of the doctor's seventh child.

Alvarez was not being cooperative with investigators and was legally compelled to give testimony in front of the L.A. County Grand Jury last month.

This news comes on top of other recent bad news for Murray as Jackson's autopsy report, which was released last week, is filled with good news for prosecutors. The coroner has ruled that Jackson's death was caused by acute intoxication of the aforementioned propofol with other sedatives being a contributing factor. In addition, the coroner found that the propofol was administered without any medical need and that the recommended resuscitation equipment was not present at the time. The report also indicates that Jackson's physical condition was that of a healthy 50 year old man whose death appears to have been directly caused by the administration of drugs.

The coroner's report supports the belief that the superstar's death was caused by an overdose and will not only be helpful for prosecutors, but it also helps to enable the Jackson family to successfully pursue a civil lawsuit.

Source: MJFC / /

A little news for everyone.
I knew Murray was under investigation. But I didn't know he was under federal investigation. I thought they were going after all the pharmacies and prescription happy dr's.
Step by step Federal charges would be excellent.

Luda   October 6th, 2009 7:46 pm ET

But I'm convinced on the blog here there is an authentic **MJ** and TI but it's not always the original that come each time... there are impostors...

MourningMJ   October 6th, 2009 7:47 pm ET


Michael's voice, like his soul.. is Timeless. It will never grow old, and neither will he.

@IRENE- Irene, I do have to agree with you. I strongly believe that LaToya and Jermaine have Michael's best intentions- that makes sense. They just lost the most loved human on Earth. LaToya has been appointed in charge of Michael's P.R. on behalf of the family- this is not a secret. Jermaine, I believe, will continue to reinforce what a beautiful human Michael really is. LaToya just tells it like it is and keeps it real. She has no shame when it comes to Michael; Jermaine, well, I still think he is living in the Land of Denial. And, unfortunately for him, it's not that populated.

DWTS did ask LaToya, she declined due to the ongoing investigation. However, she is a temporary correspondent with Access Hollywood for DWTS. Maybe next year- I think she would kick some a**- After all, the Jackson blood does run through her veins...

@**mj** baby, we are all on the jax chat...come on in, the door is open...just let us know it's you... 🙂


carie   October 6th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

That family will continue to attempt to profit off MJ's death for as long as they can-gotta keep the $$$$$$ flowing into the compound!! They make me sick! $$$$$ is all they ever cared about-that's why MJ was pimped out at age 5!! He was so gifted and they exploited it, and crushed his sensitive soul-shame on them!!!

Lori - Justice For Michael   October 6th, 2009 9:12 pm ET

@**mj**, honey



L.O.V.E.U. Michael

Barbara   October 6th, 2009 9:19 pm ET

*mj** on a personal note, I am trying to write an essay and am experiencing "writer's block."

Do you have any tips on how to get those creative juices flowing so I can create a good piece of work?

I figure you are the expert on these things.

Thank you,

Love you Michael ♔

There was special on tonight.... Michael and Family when they preformed then and where they are at now..... Jackson 5.... ....I glad that i live in this times to see the Jacksons grow up and to see where they are today... to see Michael grow up into an incredible Man. That will continue to bring HAPPINESS & LOVE to the World

lindafromnewyork   October 6th, 2009 9:37 pm ET

Michael, Sweeheart-since you didn't answer me–I take it is ok to call you Michael

marguerite   October 6th, 2009 9:51 pm ET

mj said the Rolls Royce "phantoms" were not a coincidence.


Ok now think of this it is well known fasct that Michael liked to take bits and pieces of various performers and incorporate those bits and pieces into his act.

The only phantom I can think of is Phantom of the Opera. Any ideas anyone what he could use from Phantom of the Opera?

lex   October 6th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

@marguerite michael couldve took the disguises

still me just a new name   October 6th, 2009 9:54 pm ET

Ok the clip is gone but if you can find it:

I just watched Latoya's clip and it is so strange to hear her talk about Michael in the present tense. I guess it is hard for her to think of Michael as being gone. Listen to the clip at the 5:44- 6:19 mark.

mjpyt   October 6th, 2009 10:03 pm ET

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

wheres the beginning wheres the end
Times arrows so difficult to bend
Those broken promises what they meant
Those love letters that where never sent


blanketparis   October 6th, 2009 10:04 pm ET

Ok, obvioulsy my last post regarding the symbols was not allowed and maybe it was because of the embedded here I will try my question again without the embedding


There were a lot of symbols during the “We Are The World” at the memorial. Can you tell me why they were so evident and why possibly they were added to your memorial?

Lori - Justice For Michael   October 6th, 2009 10:04 pm ET

@margureite - I think "Phantom" is a reference to "ghosts".

@Barbara –did the Rockwell video disapear?


marguerite   October 6th, 2009 10:12 pm ET

Lori- Phantoms can also be someone who is there but not noticed.

marguerite   October 6th, 2009 10:13 pm ET

You know, someone that blends into the scenery, to speak.

Barbara   October 6th, 2009 10:16 pm ET


Yes it has gone to the land of the unknown, with Gene and TI 😦

TXmom   October 6th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

They are under the blog from yesterday...the blog that talks about his kids.
Someone had posted a not nice quote from Colin Firth re: MJ and a question was asked about the newspaper that had the quote..The Examiner. The connection between AEG and this newspaper came out, others asked if that paper had been printing good or bad things about MJ. The newspaper is basically owned by affiliate of their parent company (AEG).
The newspaper name sounded familiar to me as I read the I dug back into the history of my computer surfing and googled some.
There were article links that had surfaced elsewhere back in July, I believe, that were horrible. I had seen them and purposely chose to not post them elsewhere cuz they were downright hateful.
I posted the links on the other blog here when the question came up about the AEG/The Examiner business link and their coverage. At the time of reading the articles back then, I had no idea that the hateful coverage was coming basically from was one of their columnists who was spewing crap back in April. So on one hand back then there was part of AEG trying to make $$ off of the concert and MJ, and the "other" hand was trashing him quite publically in multiple articles...basically saying that he wouldn't make it thru the concerts and how badly things were going in rehearsals, the writer went on and on and on in several articles. Not just one random article, but a series of them. He kept referring to his "source".
I was hestitant to share the actual links but I thought posters needed to see just how much hate AEG allowed , and I was not sure that me just saying "they were being haters back in April" gave a real picture.
I apologize if any posters here got upset at reading what AEG allowed to be in those article links...NOT trying to keep their hate going, just tried to answer the questions posted at the time about the AEG/The Examiner connection and their coverage.
I'm really surprised they didn't try to scrub that site clean of any evidence of what they allowed to be written back then.

mjpyt   October 6th, 2009 10:19 pm ET

i was born to never die to live in bliss and never cry
To speak the truth and never lie
To share my love without a sigh
To stretch my arms without a tie
This is the dance this is the high

Its not a secret cant you see
Why cant we all live in

AnGeLs AmOnGuS   October 6th, 2009 10:36 pm ET

@ angel wings the other day Anne asked you if you read her comment she wrote about your dad, and you was confused ,she got the names mixed up. I am the one who was on here talking about my dad. I think she thought you was me . I just wanted to let you know so that you didnt think someone was posing as you.

Morty M   October 6th, 2009 10:50 pm ET

For those that don't know...**mj** is talking about Kennedy William Gordy also know as "Rockwell" (the guy that sang "Somebody's watching me") Ken is the son of Berry Gordy (Motown founder).

Emmy Lalonde, Belgium.   October 6th, 2009 11:00 pm ET

Michael Jackson was great and will always be the greatest one however.
We love you MJ, even more, hope you are good there to watch all of us. GBU

Marina   October 6th, 2009 11:16 pm ET

@**mj** Michael
Please be careful. There are many true believers but many haters as well.
I pray everyday that you are safe.
I have faith in you and trust that we will all see what you mean when you say "everything".

Theres a beat for you in my heart
Be safe.
love always

mjsheerbrilliance   October 6th, 2009 11:18 pm ET

Rolls Royce "Phantoms" ? Got me with this one???

Kim from MN   October 6th, 2009 11:24 pm ET


Not sure if I should call this a coincidence or not, but it seems that a question that I asked to you on another site has been answered on here. And I'll take the bait on the 'pulling the strings' statement and assume I would be correct in my thinking it is CG-S?

The usheres at the funeral represent that we are indeed in a movie. I'm not sure when this stopped, but at one time when you would go to a movie you were actually escorted to your seat by an usher wearing similar attire as your ushers. Haven't figured out the dancers except maybe they were to perform with you on stage and this represented that. I'll have to dig for the 'phantoms' – don't know.

Countdown starts, huh? Countdown to what? The movie? Yes – I just thought of it! The 33 clues in the movie explain your disappearace so this is the countdown! Even if that isn't right, I thought it was reasonable.

Love you Michael.

mjsheerbrilliance   October 6th, 2009 11:34 pm ET

@Kim from MN

Good thought on the ushers...

Marina   October 6th, 2009 11:36 pm ET

@mjsheerbrilliance....Perhaps Ghosts? MJ's Ghost video IDK?

@**mj**.......Goodnight sweet Michael.

mjsheerbrilliance   October 6th, 2009 11:50 pm ET


Maybe that could be a possibility???

mjsheerbrilliance   October 6th, 2009 11:55 pm ET

Can't wait for the new release on the 12th 🙂

Goodnight to all 🙂

Kim from MN   October 6th, 2009 11:55 pm ET


I had to look for the phantoms and found something that is so simple. Since phantom means 'something existing in appearance only' the Rolls Royce Phantoms could represent an illusion – we saw the vehicles so we saw what they represented (the last ride) but in fact they weren't representing this at all.

Probably wrong, but had fun!

Marmoura   October 6th, 2009 11:57 pm ET


Thanks so much for answering my questions. That is very interesting. AEG seems to be everywhere. I don't think I will look for those examiner articles. I want to stay in a pleasant state of mind.

I also read your summary about the drugs posted on the other blog. You post was very helpful in understanding how drugs react in your system. thank you for that.

Mara   October 7th, 2009 12:06 am ET


My late night hagamama I just got done reading up on the blogs and going out to dinner now, yes I know it's late but that's how we do it in LV.

Enjoy your Hagablogging tonight. If you see Lori give her a hag hug for me. IHUG

Trust no one

mjpyt   October 7th, 2009 12:21 am ET

With one person a very special person
A feeling deep in your soul says your half
Now your whole

Michael Jackson You Rock My World

Barbara   October 7th, 2009 12:36 am ET

**mj** one more question, and then I promise I will ask no more.

I am having temporary difficulties writing a paper this evening and I would like your expertise.

When you wrote music, did you get your inspiration from being out in nature? Sitting alone in a quiet room-or listening to other artist's masterpieces?

I would be interested in any bit of advice you could offer.

Thank you.

Love you Michael ☞ you da man!

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   October 7th, 2009 12:44 am ET

The Jackson 5 will always be connected with MJ........ whether anyone likes it or that is where he started from. It is a part of history.

Jessie from Auckland, NZ   October 7th, 2009 1:04 am ET

The interview MJ did with Geraldo Rivera in 2005 is one of the best. He looked so relaxed there – like he was enjoying it. I think they both did.

mjpyt   October 7th, 2009 1:11 am ET

Immortality playing my game from bliss i came
In bliss im substained to bliss i return
If you dont know it now its a shame
Are you lisening i appear and dissapear
Playing hide and seek in the twinkling of an eye


Lori - Justice For Michael   October 7th, 2009 1:19 am ET

@Barbara ...I wonder when Larry will give us a Rockwell blog? 🙂


Marina   October 7th, 2009 1:23 am ET

This has been the best Agatha Christie like experience in my life. The effects have been life changing in terms of the world unity between fans.
Unity without prejudice, judgement and hate all for one purpose.

All for LOVE and for Michael

Barbara   October 7th, 2009 1:28 am ET

I think he should Lori.
And just for the heck of it-post the video.
Then no one will ever have to wonder who Rockwell is.
Because Larry and **mj** will have enlightened us.

Love you Michael☞ You're it!

Elly   October 7th, 2009 1:50 am ET

@ **mj**
I can't believe how many people actually believe you are the real deal. All I can say is that MJ is dead for the following reasons:

1- His body was taken to coroner's officer and two or three autopsies were performed on it!!!!!! (Which means somebody died and if it is not Michael then who the hell died and why does not the poor guy's family or friends say something!) Unless you are saying that the coroner's office is in on it and that is just insane.

2-The police are investigating his death

3- Michael was buried and 200 people attended his funeral, and there is a death certificate

4-Faking death is a crime and you can't just fake your death then comeback and expect everything to be ok!!! Anybody who does that will go to jail.
And many more reasons..................

So my recommendation to you is:


Barbara   October 7th, 2009 1:56 am ET

Is that you again René? Sheesh...

Lori - Justice For Michael   October 7th, 2009 2:41 am ET

@GENE!! Please come back to the bloggy. It is not the same without you....


Elly   October 7th, 2009 2:49 am ET

@ Barbara
do not sheesh me and no I am not Rene or whatever. I love Michael jackson too but I can't deny reality just because I hate it.

Stu,Hungary   October 7th, 2009 5:12 am ET

Huhú!i see **mj** was here.Peaples go crasy...

I dont believe,if he would be a life,he would came here,and claim,he is a life, to us in a blog,without any pruve.Why would he doo that?But if it will come true by some mericle,i will be very happy!

Stu,Hungary   October 7th, 2009 5:14 am ET

I dont understand,why peaples argueing here!Everybody have a wright to believe,what ever thay whant to believe,and everybody have the wright to wrighd them though...

MaryRM   October 7th, 2009 6:07 am ET

TXmom October 6th, 2009 10:16 pm ET

that is very interesting, AEGs ownership of a tabloid and the awful things that were printed.

If they made a movie of this, no one would believe it, it is more complicated than any fiction could possibly be.

jacqueline\nl   October 7th, 2009 6:56 am ET

stu you are right evryone thinks what she\he wants to think
as long it is reallety

Luda   October 7th, 2009 12:01 pm ET

I think those who don't like **MJ**'s visits should just ignore it, and those who wants to talk with him or she do it...


mjpyt   October 7th, 2009 3:20 pm ET

There are times i wonder should i give in
Then the answers i get they come from with in

My friend my friend watch carefully where you stand
Are you treading on hearts throughout the lands

I hope my dreams they will come true my only wish
is to rock with you


MaryRM   October 8th, 2009 4:56 am ET

Luda – it was easy to ignore them before, just skim over them, but the hoax people have taken over the website and it is almost impossible to have blogs that discuss the case, restoring his reputation and securing his legacy anymore.

And that is very sad.

Patty Anderson   October 8th, 2009 10:53 am ET

Good Morning is this where everyone is?

Patty Anderson   October 8th, 2009 11:25 am ET

Hey MJ this one's for you. And I have contacted Larry KIng and CNN about you.
Hey MJ I see your post up there. How about I contact Larry King and let him know you are Michael Jackson and posting on his blog.
He would be extremely excited to interview you.
Oh and by the way. Michael never told his fans he loved them that was. He always said from the bottom of his heart “Ireally do”
Take your crack pipe and go back to grade school MJ.

You are messing with peoples emotions. I am sending an email to Larry kING to have you investigated. They can trace you on here MJ.
What do you expect to gain here by tormenting these faithful fans of Michaels.
You are a very disturbed person.
Since you claim you are MIchael Jackson then the world needs to know you are alive and then you can also go to jail for fraud and everything else you caused by faking your death.
But I know you are not Michael Joe Jackson
You are a fake a liar and an imposter and it’s time to put a stop to you.

Maria   October 8th, 2009 1:43 pm ET

Everytime you see a mj here, please refrain from responding to him (or her) and paying attention to what he says. All trolls feed off our attention and enjoy making us curious, angry and sad. Ignore them completely. There's a basic rule: DON'T FEED THE TROLLS.

Brigida, Italy   October 8th, 2009 5:36 pm ET

santa pazienza....

What's going on on these blogs? Don't understand you anymore...
Yes, don't feed the trolls. You only will feel bad and the trolls are laughing.
And why so many of you seems to believe a TI or a *mj* but not an Unbreakable? Why?
I'm so sad reading those things :/
