Based on the best-selling book, Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days, and told through the eyes of Jackson’s trusted bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard. The movie will reveal firsthand the devotion Michael Jackson had to his children, and the hidden drama that took place during the last two years of his life.
First time I ever heard of vitiligo was from Micheal Jackson.
WITH his rippling muscles and classic good looks, this aspiring male model should have no problem finding a date. But shy Darius Vernon has spent the past fourteen years avoiding the opposite sex after a chronic skin condition left his self-esteem in tatters. Darius, from Willesden, North London, suffers from vitiligo – a condition that causes the skin to lose its pigmentation creating white patches on the body. Darius spent years trying to hide his condition, but after being noticed by modelling scouts on Instagram, the 30-year-old is hoping to show that diversity is beautiful.
This was obviously filmed before Bill Cosby was formally charged with sexual assault.
During our hilarious – albeit serious – interview with comedian Eddie Griffin, the established Hollywood actor decided to share tales of his personal bouts with both Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson. Griffin was (and continues to be) a supporter of the two men who have faced an onslaught of ridicule for sexual allegations in numerous separate cases. “There is a systematic effort to destroy every Black male entertainer’s image,” Eddie told DJ Vlad. “They want all of us to have an asterisk by our name.” Griffin believes, like Michael and Bill, that most African-American male entertainers are singled out for their illicit behavior. “Nobody leaves this business clean,” he stated while pointing out the cases of others. “You’re not going to die clean.”
This is a fascinating story that I hope you guys are paying attention to because this is just the beginning of impending cyber warfare against corporations the world over. They have made their demands known and will continue to pull off the veil of these multi-national corporations who have wielded unbridled power for far too long. I got my popcorn. Lastly, I hope that Amy wakes up and realizes that Al Sharpton’s influence is waning and doesn’t speak for us. Burn Hollywood burn.
DEADLINE: Did you apologize to the president?
PASCAL: I don’t know Barack Obama. I worked really hard for him in both of his campaigns. I am inspired by him. I…I’m embarrassed, deeply.
DEADLINE: Rev. Al Sharpton just came out with a statement highly critical of your comment. How do you react to that?
PASCAL: I know I screwed up. So I called him and we spoke. And we are going to try to use this as an opportunity to make things better.
It was no way I could post this story without using that headline which has been all over the net. Dr. Conrad Murray has done his first interview and says some shocking things to say the least when talking about his relationship with Michael Jackson.
The jury has spoken and has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter. He was remanded until Nov. 23rd when he is sentenced. Accordin g to Harvey Levin of TMZ Murray will only serve half of whatever time he is given. Story Developing…
Still trying to figure out why this show was made in the first place, just seems really weird that anyone would want to see this. With the news that Dr. Conrad Murray’s defense will be that Michael injected himself with Propofol which lead to his death, it seems the legacy of our greatest entertainer is being tarnished and pillaged for the world to see.TMZ got the scoop:
via TMZ Co-Executors John Branca and John McClain fired off a vitriolic letter to the Prez of Discovery — obtained by TMZ — in which they accuse the network of operating in “shockingly bad taste … motivated solely by your blind desire to exploit Michael’s death, while cynically attempting to dupe the public into believing this show will have serious medical value.”
The family claims that some of these songs are fake. Even his kids are saying it. What is a rabid worldwide fanbase to do? Regardless to what any of us think this is going to be released on Dec. 14 to much fanfair.

They really could not wait for MJ to die to wring every dollar out of his name and legacy. Well here is the latest check out ‘The Michael Jackson Experience’ which allows you to bust dance moves like MJ from the comfort of your home.
Buckle your safety belts butter beans and prepare for a shit storm of publicity because the Los Angeles mansion where Michael Jackson met his untimely death in June of 2009 is back on the market with an asking price of $28,995,000.
A kingdom that was on the verge of collapse from more than $500 million in debt now looks to be able to support his three children and his mother and donate healthily to children’s charities.
The estate has earned more than $250 million in the year since he died. Executors used some of that to pay off $70 million in debt, including the $5 million mortgage on the Jackson family compound in Encino, part of Los Angeles. The interest payments on the remaining debt are now covered by a steady flow of cash.
According to Usmagazine Michael Jackson’s children will each receive $33 million via trust fund. Prince, 13, Paris,12 and Blanket, 8 will have access to over 30% of their father’s estate, currently valued at $300 million dollars.
I think Michael’s legacy is priceless but this is the music business so the gravy train must continue. I wonder how much money has been made off the Jacksons in total. Would we even have a music industry without them?
LOS ANGELES — The estate of Michael Jackson has landed the late King of Pop the biggest recording deal in history: a $200 million guaranteed contract with Sony Music Entertainment for 10 projects over seven years, according to a person familiar with the deal.
The record-breaking contract through 2017 could be worth up to $250 million if certain conditions are met. One of the albums will be of never-before-released Jackson recordings that will come out in November, the person said.
We definitely need some vocals from Michael Jackson in this song. It would be only right knowing his constant concern for the world’s poor throughout his life.
EXCLUSIVE: This column has learned that Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie are planning a massive 25th anniversary re-recording of “We Are the World.”
The timing couldn’t be better, sadly enough.
The duo is summoning lots and lots of talent from Grammy weekend to stay an extra night — Monday Feb. 1 — and come to the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. There, they will celebrate a quarter century since Ken Kragen, Richie and Michael Jackson organized the original “We Are the World” with Quincy.
MICHAEL JACKSON: The King of Pop reclaimed his crown after his death, towering over the year in music. The surreal saga began in March, when Jackson, mired in debt, accepted AEG Live’s proposal that he perform 50 shows at London’s O2 Arena, as handicappers placed odds on how many of the shows he’d actually do, or whether he’d show up at all.

The theme park announced plans Friday to bring back the 3-D sci-fi film starring Michael Jackson next February, over 23 years after the attraction debuted in Anaheim, Calif. The 17-minute film starred the late King of Pop as a singing-and-dancing intergalactic commander. It was directed by Francis Ford Coppola and executive produced by George Lucas.
In the film, Jackson leads a goofy alien and robot crew as they battle a wicked queen played by Anjelica Huston. “Captain EO” originally opened in Disneyland’s Tommorrowland in 1986 and ran for more than a decade. Identical versions later opened at other Disney theme parks. They were all closed by 1998.
Really don’t know what to say about this. Michael surely had some very weird taste in art. via NY Post
In a 1999 painting he commissioned, Michael Jackson strikes the same pose as Michelangelo’s statue of David with rippling abs, bulging pecs and smooth, marble-white skin — surrounded by a bevy of male cherubs.

NEW YORK – The shimmering, white glove Michael Jackson wore when he premiered his trademark moonwalk dance in 1983 was auctioned off for $350,000 — plus tax — on Saturday.
Winning bidder Hoffman Ma of Hong Kong will pay $420,000, including taxes and fees, for the rhinestone-studded, modified golf glove Jackson wore on his left hand for his moonwalk on Motown’s 25th anniversary TV special.
The glove was the top item in a collection of Jackson memorabilia on the block at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square. Its pre-auction estimate was $40,000 to $60,000.
“It was a fairly good discount,” said Ma, a 36-year-old Jackson fan who bought the pop-music treasure on behalf of the Ponte 16 Resort Hotel in Macau.
As the price of the glove soared, fans roared and squealed — echoing the kind of frenzy that accompanied the late pop star when he toured the world.
“That’s what death brings upon celebrity,” said Brendan Doyle, a college student munching chicken fingers from a plate in his lap. “Jackson’s death was such a tragedy at such a young age that it pushed up prices.”
This dude is absolutely off his rocker. He actually believes this makes him look better? The untold story is how many Black people of Latin descent are discriminated against in Spanish speaking countries such as his Dominican Republic which has a large black population.
“I use a cream to keep my skin smooth and soft. I apply it before I go to bed. When I was playing for Chicago all those years, I was in the sun a lot for 1 o’clock games,” said Sosa, who turns 41 tomorrow. “The flashes (from the cameras) also made my skin look lighter. I’m surprised with the controversy this has caused.”
Sosa, who would not tell Dandrades the name of the cream he uses, did say that it is European and that he is in negotiations to market the product. He added that he wears colored contact lenses because he wanted to “try something different. I’m not trying to be superficial.”
Asked by Dandrades if Sosa was trying to be like Jackson, the 1998 NL MVP laughed.
“Not at all, I respect him very much,” said Sosa, who gave the interview at his Miami penthouse apartment on Monday. “I’m not a racist. I’m not like that. I’m just a happy person.”
“South Park” returned last night with an episode called “I See Dead Celebrities,” in which Billy Mays, David Carradine, Farrah Fawcett, Ed McMahon, Walter Cronkite, DJ AM, Michael Jackson, Bea Arthur and more are trapped in purgatory, waiting to enter Heaven.
Once again to all the tabloids and media outlets who professed that Michael Jackson couldn’t sing and had lost it. Take that. This will be a great movie and is due in theaters next month for two weeks only. Buy your tickets starting September 27th.
