Michael Jackson 411 News Update!

 I am happy to report two things about Michael Jackson this evening. "Off The Wall 30"(I know...Rehash) and "a settlement over the Sheikh suit".

             A 30th Anniversary In Favor of "Off The Wall"

 Sony BMG(the U.K. division) has just confirmed a launching for "Off The Wall 30". Set to premier for February 9th next year! Other then a handful of rarities, demos, and outtakes nothing else has been confirmed on what we'll be getting.

 I just hope we don't wind up with another plethora of rubbish mixes(like "Thriller 25"). Now don't get me wrong. I think the remixes are O.K.(for today's music generation). However, I couldn't quite feel the soul Michael lavished upon the original, twenty five years ago. I sure hope he doesn't make the same mistakes for this project.

The MJ Vrs. shiek Case Appears Dismissed

 

 Well, after getting fixed to board for London this morning, his layers gave him the settlement gesture. Nothing has been leaked beyond these tid bits. But an agreement has been established between both party's, which could mean it's over! Just waiting for more confirmation.

 Had Michael gone to court, I firmly believe he would of embarrassed the crap out of this Prince(assuming Emjay's innocent). Not to mention a counter-suit where he'll be forced to cough-up the amount he demanded as an award to Michael(not sure if the high courts of England work like that).

 If this case is truly over, that means Michael Jackson can focus on the future without any distractions as there would be no more trials to divert his mega comeback(it's been a long time)!

[Update: Now the case is truly settled!-Source...and now I will close with a quote from Michael Jackson's New York Attorney(regarding his rumored conversion to Islam)...

"Jackson's New York lawyer, Londell McMillan, took the opportunity to trash a British press report that Jackson has become a Muslim. 'That's rubbish. It's completely untrue,' McMillan told reporters."
From the New York Daily News.

Stay tuned for another MJJ Report.

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…
