What If Michael Jackson Was Alive, What Would You Want To Ask Him


What would you do or say if Michael Jackson was still alive today? If Michael Jackson was alive today, would he still be making music, and still be the king of pop?

At the time of his death, Jackson was still a huge draw, particularly in Europe. He was still an active performer, and his last album, Invincible, had been put out in 2001, eight years before he died. It was a huge seller around the world at the time.

And his health was not good-had he not died, he in all likelihood might have been too ill to continue to be an active touring, working musician. Touring and public appearances are a lot of work, and Jackson just wasn’t well. And as we now know, his This is It tour was controversial because the sponsors of that tour basically put pressure on Jackson to commit to a heavy schedule while knowing he wasn’t in very good health.

Understanding Michael Jackson and R. Kelly's Hit

Michael Jackson Is Being Banned All Around The Globe

Understanding Michael Jackson and R. Kelly's Hit "You Are Not Alone"


We need to teach our youth the true on were music they listen to comes from. I know Michael Jackson and R Kelly true fans know which song I am talking about. "You Are Not Alone" was one of Michael's greatest hits that was written by R Kelly himself.

The R&B ballad was written by American R&B singer R. Kelly for Michael Jackson in response to difficult times in his own personal life. Kelly sent a bare demo tape to Jackson, who liked the song and decided to produce it with him in Chicago.

The song was a commercial success. It holds a Guinness World Record as the first song in the 37-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 to debut at number one, and was later certified platinum by the RIAA.

Although the song was written by Kelly, Jackson was adamant that the production should be a collaborative effort among the two musicians. The tape sent to him had no harmony or modulations, so Jackson added a choir in the final portion and added a sense of climax and structure to the final piece.

R. Kelly recorded his own version of the song and put it on his critically acclaimed 2010 album Love Letter, he recorded it as a tribute to Jackson following his death. The song was a hidden bonus song on the album, shown as the final song on the album's track list. The song starts with Kelly paying tribute to Michael Jackson, saying "In loving memories of my hero... MJ".


Michael Jackson’s “You Are Not Alone” is creepier and sadder than you think. The majority of Michael Jackson’s 13 chart-topping solo hits are more than mere songs. They’re audio companions to videos etched into the hearts and minds of those old enough to remember The King Of Pop during his mighty reign.

Lounging semi-nude on a temple set that looks like something out of a porno, or maybe an orientation film at a discount day spa, MJ and his bride cuddle and giggle yet never actually kiss. There’s obvious affection but zero sexual chemistry.

R. Kelly wrote “You Are Not Alone” especially for Jackson, and he even went so far as to imitate Jackson’s quavering vocals in his demo. But the most shocking allegation came from a woman named Lizzette Martinez, who said that Michael Jackson’s hit “You Are Not Alone,” written by Kelly, is based on the sexual relationship she and Kelly had when she was just a teenager.

Backup singer Jovante Cunningham didn’t confirm Martinez’s account, but she did say that Kelly’s songs are grounded in reality. “In hindsight, all of the songs, they’re real stories,” said Cunningham. “They’re about different people during those times and different situations that were occurring with him. So, ‘Your Body’s Callin’, ‘Sex Me’, those are real stories. ‘Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number.’ He meant that.”

Understanding Why Michael Jackson Wore A Single Glove

 


Michael Jackson's single glove characterized a certain time in the singer's career. His hands, it seems, had a journey of their own, going from bare to a single glove, then white tapes were placed on his fingertips in the Dangerous era. But the single glove became as legendary as the moonwalk and the Thriller red jacket, though few have truly known the reason why it became part of Michael's 1980s look.


Why did Michael Jackson wear a single glove?

There are various differing accounts for why the glove was worn.


Some have suggested it was due to necessity over Michael Jackson's medical reasons, while others have suggested he used it to 'manipulate' the press.

Michael Jackson Is Being Banned All Around The Globe


This is big for the music industry in the case of Michael Jackson. Who would have thought in a million years that they would be trying to lock Michael Jackson up in 2019.

It was expected that the explosive details set to be revealed in the recently aired Leaving Neverland documentary would have some requisite fallout. Stations In Canada and New Zealand took songs from its playlist after the documentary aired in the States.

Michael Jackson isn’t currently on any MediaWorks Radio stations’ playlists,” Leon Wratt, the company’s director for radio, said in a statement. “This is a reflection of our audiences and their preferences — it is our job to ensure our radio stations are playing the music people want to hear.”

A spokesman for Radio NZ, a publicly-funded broadcaster, said it would only play Jackson if it was “part of a news story or to provide color around a commentary piece.”

In Canada, three major Montreal-based radio stations have also stopped playing Jackson’s music, according to Canadian news outlet CBC. Other stations in Canada are reported to be monitoring the situation.

Macaulay Culkin Speaks Out About Michael Jackson


The Home Alone star maintained a close friendship with the music legend from the early 90s, and spoke at Jackson’s trial on charges of child molestation, calling the allegations against the star ‘absolutely ridiculous’.

And nearly ten years after Michael’s death, Macaulay has shared an insight into his friendship with the star, who was 22 years older than him.

‘He reached out to me because a lot of things were happening, big and fast with me and I think he identified with that. At the end of the day, it’s almost easy to say it was weird or whatever but it wasn’t because it made sense. At the end of the day, we were friends.’



Macaulay – who shot to fame in 1990 when he played Kevin McAllister in Home Alone – continued: ‘I was a peerless person. Nobody else in my Catholic school had even this much idea of what I was going through and he was the kind of person who’d been through the exact same frickin’ thing and wanted to make sure I wasn’t alone.’ Culkin told Rosenbaum that he would often prank call people with MJ, saying: ‘He was fucking hilarious. He was charming, fucking funny, silly.’

Chris Brown Talks Michael Jackson

What do you think about this? I know my opinion doesn't matter, but still it's a little too far for a grown man and a child. The former child star appeared in Jackson’s video for Black or White in 1991, and went on to support the singer in his trial in 2005 where Jackson was charged with molesting a 13-year old boy.

Bobby Brown Talks Michael Jackson And The Moonwalk


Brown hit Instagram live to talk with Fat Joe aka Joeprah and revealed that he was the true creator of the Michael Jackson's moonwalk, reflecting on his entrance to the music industry.

“When we first started out I had just came from Alabama learning how to do the Moonwalk, the real Moonwalk, where you put the sand on the ground and do it from the sand on the ground and it was like soft shoed,” Bobby Brown shared. “And Michael asked me to show him how to Moonwalk.

“This is a true story you could ask Michael Bivins, you can ask Ronnie Devoe, Ricky Bell, I showed Michael Jackson how to Moonwalk. I’m not insinuating, I’m letting you know that this is what happened. This is how the Moonwalk was formed,” he added.

Why Oprah Is Being Attacked By Michael Jackson Fans


Oprah's interview with Jackson accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck is set to air Monday night on HBO after Part 2 of "Leaving Neverland." Oprah Winfrey is getting inundated with hate-filled messages from Michael Jackson fans ahead of her big interview.

She doesn't say whether she believes Robson and Safechuck, both of whom have previously testified MJ never molested them.

Here is a clip Oprah released that actually asks a hard question of both Wade and James -- why did they keep associating with Michael if he had, in fact, abused them? On its face, the question shows Oprah's objectivity.

Madonna Says Michael Jackson Is Innocent


Madonna has broken her silence on the sexual abuse allegations against Michael Jackson, saying her one-time music rival is “innocent until proven guilty.” Madonna said she hadn’t seen the film, and that she didn’t want to take the claims at face value.

“I don’t have a lynch-mob mentality, so in my mind, people are innocent until proven guilty,” she said in the interview, excerpts of which were published Tuesday in The Independent. “I’ve had a thousand accusations hurled at me that are not true. So my attitude when people tell me things about people is, ‘Can you prove it?”

“So I always say, ‘What’s the agenda? What do people want out of this? Are there people asking for money, is there some kind of extortion thing happening?’” she added. “I would take all of those things into consideration.”

Madonna’s comments on Michael Jackson are similar to those of another female pop icon. In March, Barbra Streisand apologized after she appeared to sympathize with Jackson in a Times of London interview and said Robson and Safechuck “were thrilled to be there.”

Chris Brown Talks Michael Jackson

Chris Brown voiced his disappointment over actor, Joseph Fiennes, nabbing the role of Michael Jackson. The movie, Elizabeth, Michael, and Marlon, is reportedly a true story about Jackson's cross-country ride with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando. The film, which will appear on British TV, gained widespread outrage after casting the white actor to play the African-American icon. Fiennes tried to defend the film's casting choice saying, "[He was] probably closer to my color than to his original color."

Brown, who has paid homage to Jackson during his performances throughout the years, tweeted, "I DONT SUPPORT THAT CORNY A** S***!" He added, "Y'all know y'all dead wrong to have dude play MJ. If that's the case LET ME BE SUPERMAN. Da f*** they do that at? Is that blackface?"

Michael Jackson Accuser Changes His Story


Although he was recently one of his most staunch supporters, Aaron Carter was just approached by TMZ where he appeared to do a complete 180 on his previous defense of Michael Jackson.

"In regards to that situation, I actually have my own experience that happened with Michael so I'm going to be talking about that," Carter said to the surprised reporter, who then explicitly asked him if he was referencing abuse.

"You're just gonna have to find out," Carter replied while plugging an autobiography that he's currently writing, adding that "he'll always have [MJ's] back, however, he will tell his truth." From there, he stated that his family has known about what he's about to reveal for years but have never talked about, though the Jackson family was apparently left in the dark.

Kobe Bryant Talks Quitting Basketball

Could this be a rumor that +Kobe Bryant may be quitting basketball? The L.A. Lakers’ Kobe Bryant has been contemplating life after basketball since he was 22. Now that he’s 36, out due to injury and close to retirement, he says he’ll play one more season and finish his two-year contract, which will net him $25 million. But his recent experience as the subject and executive producer of the intimate doc Kobe Bryant’s Muse — produced by Gotham Chopra (Deepak‘s son) and airing Feb. 28 on Showtime — has opened up the possibility of a career behind the lens. “There are so many other stories to be told,” he says, adding that he’d like to profile Phil Jackson and Apple designer Jonathan Ive.

Chopra began filming Bryant more than a year ago, before Bryant suffered a devastating Achilles injury — and the film chronicles his recovery efforts. But it also finds him at a crossroads in his life and questioning some of the choices he’s made, including putting so much time and energy into basketball at the expense of the relationships in his life. Bryant sat for nearly 20 interviews with Chopra. The result is a surprisingly revealing introspective film about an NBA star who has been under the microscope almost since the day he entered the NBA straight from high school in 1996. “It was 100 percent therapeutic,” says Bryant. “The goal from the beginning was to make a truthful film.”

You were very candid about the dark periods in your life. Was that difficult?

BRYANT It was very difficult. But there’s beauty in that process.

You were arrested in 2003 on sexual assault charges, but the case was dropped. How difficult was that to revisit?

BRYANT Those were dark days for all of us. We all kind of dreaded that day.

Gotham, what were your conversations with Kobe like before you interviewed him?

CHOPRA We didn’t talk beforehand because we didn’t want it to feel scripted. It had to feel raw and honest. It was not easy for him. It was not easy for us because you feel like you’re prying into someone’s most personal stuff. But his willingness to go there just made it feel like, now we’re doing something special.

BRYANT Probably during my second year [in the NBA]. It takes more time to keep those relationships going. I was just really obsessive about becoming one of the all-time greats. I just loved playing the game so much that everything took a back seat. But I had to make a choice. Once I made that decision, the game became everything to me.

Do you regret that?

BRYANT It depends on what day you ask me. Certain days, when things are going really well, I feel like I have everything. But on days where things are not as good, I question that.

Some of your NBA peers have dabbled in acting. Do you have any interest in a career in front of the camera?

BRYANT No, I don’t enjoy being in films. It makes me uncomfortable.

You went to the NBA directly from high school. What was it like to be thrust into this grown-up world and suddenly making a very grown-up salary? 

BRYANT It’s really hard, especially for a 17-year-old. You’re having all this money thrown at you, all this attention thrown at you. And there are a lot of leeches. It teaches you a lot about focus. What are you focused on? What are you trying to accomplish? All right, let’s weed out everything else that gets in the way of that. But at 20 years old, I was dealing with a lot. It was crazy.

You have never worked with Gotham before, but I understand you had a mutual friend.

BRYANT Yeah. He knew Michael [Jackson] very well. And Michael is one of my mentors. When I was 18, he introduced me to his muses. I had never seen a Fred Astaire film.

You watched Fred Astaire movies with him?

BRYANT Yeah, I wanted to know how he sold 50 million albums, so he walked me through how he prepares, how he trains, how he writes, how he studies.

What was the most important lesson you learned from Michael Jackson?

BRYANT That everything is connected. Whether you’re a writer, an actor, a singer, a composer or an athlete, the common thread is there. Everything around us is an opportunity to be inspired.

Top 5 Hottest Janet Jackson Photos

The Wrap-Up Magazine has just released the top 5 hottest photos of +Janet JacksonJanet Damita Jo Jackson is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Known for a series of sonically innovative, socially conscious and sexually provocative records, as well as elaborate stage shows.
 Beyonce and her daughter Blue Ivy dressed up as Janet Jackson for Halloween 2014. Janet Jackson hasn't watched television since her brother Michael died suddenly in Los Angeles on June 25. She has blocked herself off completely from the hysterical media coverage.
 Ten years ago, 90 million people watching Super Bowl XXXVIII saw Janet Jackson's breast for nine-sixteenths of a second. Our culture would never be the same. It would seem like a simple thing to do after listening to Janet Jackson's album and looking at her videos. Sex is the theme. Sex is obviously on her mind, on my mind, on the worlds mind.
 Janet Jackson is officially a billionaire. The Jackson family singer may have just married Qatari tycoon Wissam Al Mana, but according to some calculations from Variety, Janet was already worth a pretty penny.

Will The Show ‘Leaving Neverland’ Be A Disgrace To Michael Jackson?


I hope this show HBO is about to premier don't bring tears to both me and my kids eyes. In the letter to HBO’s CEO Richard Plepler, the estate’s counsel deem Leaving Neverland “an admittedly one-sided, sensationalist program—referred to as a ‘documentary'” and defend Jackson against the accusations brought forth by the film’s two accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck.

“The Estate spent years litigating with Robson and Safechuck, and had four different lawsuits by these two men dismissed with prejudice,” the estate said. “Today, Robson owes the Estate almost seventy thousand dollars in court costs, and Safechuck owes the Estate several thousand dollars as well.”

Read Full Article on RollingStone

The letter states that, two years later, after the estate turned down Robson, a noted choreographer, for a Michael Jackson-themed Cirque de Soleil show, Robson came forward with his “fabricated” allegations against Jackson.

In response to the 10-page letter, HBO said in a statement to Rolling Stone, “Our plans remain unchanged. The two-part documentary, Leaving Neverland will air as scheduled on Sunday, March 3rd and Monday, March 4th. Dan Reed is an award-winning filmmaker who has carefully documented these survivors’ accounts. People should reserve judgment until they see the film.”

The letter to HBO continued, “As for Safechuck, by his own admission, he did not ‘realize’ that he had been abused until after he saw Robson on the Today Show in May 2013 being interviewed by Matt Lauer about Robson’s newly-concocted story of abuse. All of a sudden, Safechuck realized that he had been abused."
