The Michael Jackson 411

I just wanted to take a moment and give you the Jackson 411.

On Caged Matches


 Last Saturday MGM Studio was treated with a unique spectator-Michael Jackson! Well, I see he got a new hobby.:) Glad the guy had somethin' to do this Memorial Day Weekend.
Not wanting to draw attention to himself, he wore a disguise on a wheelchair.

New Single?


Whats more! According to Los Vegas Magazine, Michael's supposed to release an all-new single in mid-June(not to be confused with U.K.'s "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' 2008" release)! Wouldn't doubt if the date gets postponed. But I'll keep you posted.:) The tidbit can be found Here. Ya might have to search real hard(wink).

*Update* I was right. It won't premier until August or September. He will also be featured on Akon's late July release "Hold My Hand.

**Update**It looks like that won't be happening either. I guess we'll have to wait till sometime in 2009.:(

Michael At the King of Fashions Birthday Party


 One day prier, the Gloved One blitzed his way to a surprise appearance on Christian's birthday bash. Arguably nicknamed the King of Fashion. Compared to the turn of the millennium, MJ's lookin' good! Despite not performing, the crowd went wild! And they weren't even his fans!



Emjay Spotted At A Movie Theater
Way in the back where only the sacred enter. Michael was seen with kids boarding an SUV. He treated the kids out to a new episode of The Chronicles of Narnia. The theater is all part of The Palms Hotel somewhere amoung the Los Vegas strips.:)



Thriller Gets Added Unto the Library of Congress
Just recently Thriller received the honors to entering the holy of holies. Here's what is said about it..."Michael Jackson's second album with legendary producer Quincy Jones attained stratospheric national and international success. Featuring outstanding performances by Paul McCartney on 'The Girl is Mine' and a metallic Eddie Van Halen guitar lead for 'Beat It,' the album’s influence on the record industry and subsequent popular music is immeasurable. The album also includes the strong post-disco-inflected 'Billie Jean' and the compelling title track 'Thriller', featuring an eerie voice-over by Vincent Price. Jackson’s keen pop sensibilities, performances by a wide range of talented musicians and Quincy Jones' expert production all contributed to making 'Thriller' the best-selling album of all time."

Ne-Yo May be featured on one of Michael's Tracks


 R&B/Soul artist Ne-Yo recently let the cat out of the bag. Both are collaborating on a couple of tracks. One of them just may make the cut for Michael's much anticipated upcoming album. Same story with Akon, Wil.I.Am, and producer Redone. Still no word on a launch date apart from maybe a release sometime during the Fall or in 2009(some even estimate March 2010). Trust me. When he's ready, look out world!:)

Possible 02/Vegas Concerts In The Making


 Michael is currently in talks about throwing off concerts in Los Vegas and the O2 Arena at London England. Nothings been confirmed yet. But I'll let you know what happens.

*Update*-March 6th, 2009 Michael Jackson announces 10 dates for London! More of the developing story Here!

Two Michael Jackson books To Be Released


 Yes. You've heard me right. June 23ed Jackson himself will release a Thriller 25 autobiography going into detail about those Thriller Album Sessions.

 Book #2 is a work of Bruce Swedien all about collaborating with the King of Pop. It's name?.."In the Studio With Michael Jackson". No word on a release date as of yet[*Update*-July 27th 2009].

Kids Spotted a Second Time Without Masks



 All three of his children were shown without masks again. This time in a book store. Michael was said to be in the music section nearby. They look like pretty normal(and cute) children to me.

...And that about wraps things up for the MJJ 411 scoop. Next I'll try to straiten the rumors and debunk the tabloids.:) Bye bye for now[New post up: Michael Jackson Tabloids].

Now back to our scheduled series-Come Together(Beatle Cover).

Little Susie

Some believe this to be based on a true story. However, it's been more or less confirmed as a fictional tale. Partly Inspired by Gottfried Helnwein's artwork. Who is famous for his emotional imagery-Especially of children(in fact, Michael used his Lichtkind(Child of Light) painting to depict this song on The History Vol. 1 Booklet).

 In this tragic tale, Little Susie took her own life because of gross indifference to her well-being. One by one, her folks passed away. Father abandoned them, leaving mother and gram-father to wither in the grave.

 Years later, she was grafted into an unloving family. Though she was adopted, they did not take her in. Loneliness seeped it's cold dead fingers upon her tender heart. Until she couldn't bear it much longer. Although it was technically an accident. She subconsciously threw herself down the stairs to escape the pain.

 Although the story is clearly fictitious, Michael was proving a point. "Neglect can kill. Like a knife …

Invincible Session Outtakes

Here is an exhaustive list of all Invincible tracks that Either was sent to production hell or never quite made the list. According to Rodney Jerkins, there are a heck of a lot of finished outtakes from this session. Enough to fill multiple albums! So I lied. This is by no means an exhaustive list.:)

Fall Again Demo-I knew something spectacular was missing from his latest album! I Just couldn't quite lay my finger on it. I'm glad Michael took time away to be with his sick son. But this track fits in this session like a jigsaw piece. This beautiful Romantic Ballad was co-produced by Walter Afanasieff and Michael Jackson.

Beautiful Girl Demo-I can just see this on a soundtrack for a Romantic movie. Claiming top chart positions worldwide. But for unknown reasons, it was cut at the last moment.

 Michael Jackson and Tito both collaborated on an instrumental take which was also shelved.

The Way You Love Me-Sounds very much like something McCartney would do. With the elegant piano a…
