Did Michael Fool Us?

Was That Really Michael Jackson? There have been numerous rumors cascading across the internet. Namely the fella you saw make a five minute speech was not Michael Jackson but a convincing lookalike. They point out to us that he seemed taller with a hunched posture and a deeper voice(not to mention running over an hour behind schedule). Yet all these claims can be easily debunked.

First off Michael got stuck in rush-hour traffic somewhere deep within the tunnels of London(that would explain making a late entrance). Second, microphones are notorious in making certain peoples voices seem lower then in person(and I'm one of those fellas too). Common sense tells us wearing any kind of boots would inflate your height(heck girls do it all the time to not feel awkward in front of their boyfriends). Lastly, Mr. Jackson has always been known to hunch while he walks. If you could recall the documentary"Living With Michael Jackson", you'll clearly find instances where he hunches while strutting through the mall.

So as you can tell, this is just another fancy story invented by a yellow journalists hoping to cash-in on his rumor weeds. Here's what Navi(Michael's official decoy) and AEG have to say about this...

"If that wasn't Michael Jackson, I might as well give up - because it means there must be someone out there who's better than me."
-Navi

"It's completely ridiculous. We can categorically guarantee it was Michael Jackson on stage. Maybe Elvis was at the press conference too."-Randy Phillips

The story can be found at Mail Online(from the U.K.).

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…
