Janet Jackson Vs. Michael's Estate!

Always so much dramz with the Jacksons!

Janet Jackson's latest album, Number Ones, was released yesterday and sources close to Janet confirm to us that the estate of her late brother Michael Jackson is challenging her rights to a particular lyric in the song Make Me.

The lyric up for debate reads "Don't stop ’til you get it up," which the Estate is claiming could be too similar to Michael's song Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough.

Janet's camp has yet to publicly respond to the claim.

We think this is kinda ridiculous!

We're pretty certain Michael would have no qualms about his sister's lyrics, even if they were meant as a nod to his song.

What do U think?

    I don't think the estate has a right to question it. Its like a memior of Michael she is repeating behind.

    bloodsuckers, the whole lot of them

    I think they should just let her have the lyrics.
    They were siblings, and I doubt he would have minded in the least.

    So what???? It's not like she's going to make any money off of it anyway! I love me some Janet (trust me) but her album sales sink more and more with each new release. Let her have fun with her song. I like it and cant wait for the video. Go JJ.

    With all the horrible crap going on in the world and MJ's estate is concerned about this? Sad.



  7. 7

    …brother and sister, both in the music industry. One is dead. I can't seem to 'relate' to that!

    stop spreading rumors, Perez.
    This story was reported last week and it has been denied by Michael's estate.
    They have said on the record - they have no problem with Janet's song
    "The truth will prevail….michael jackson"

    It's not as much drama as you make it out to be…



  15. 15

    Six words from her big brother's song? Not worth suing over.

    THIS IS NOT TRUE.

    YESTERDAY THE EXECUTORS SAID THESE REPORTS WERE RIDICULOUS.

    Give me a break, that's beyond sick. Janet is the only sane one in that entire family and should have received custody of MJ's kids. Who gets the $ anyway if the Esate wins, MJs kids? That entire family is so messed up, there is NO way Michael would have let this go down.



  18. 18

    THIS STORY IS NOT TRUE - ANOTHER TABLOID LIE
    AND PEREZ YOU KNOW THIS IS A LIE!



  19. 19

    what the hell???? I just cant understand this, it was HER brother. She is the ONE Jackson that doesnt need a cent from her deceased brother. Whomever from his estate claims that is SCUM.



  20. 20

    this was denied by the estate. perez why u posting old gossip



  21. 21

    that is so wrong on so many levels, so for the rest of forever, nobody can ever sing the words "don't stop till you get enough????" Michael Jackson does now own sentences, so fucked up!

    As knowledgeable MJ fans have pointed out this is a non story.
    Even if it was true Janet would have every right to use those 5 words in her song as the phrase ends with a different word and a different meaning. You can own the lyrics of a song but not to this extent, especially without some added musical infringement.



  23. 23

    If this is true it's total ridiculosity.



  24. 24

    I LOVE THIS SONG! It's a cheeky nod to her brother, that's all. It's very sweet. Rock on JJ!



  25. 25

    pedophile.



  26. 26

    really! michael wouldnt even question this, he let her take some of her moves for rythem nation and he used her lyrics in some of his performances. these guys are taking it too far, they have a lot more to deal with. this is just stupid

    It's a typical copyright type formality. Industry people are used to this stuff.

    Opportunist….Opportunist….Opportunist….She looks more and more like her father in a wig every day and all you Janet FANATICS are determined to pretend that its just coincidence that she is speaking out when she has an album to promote. ABC paid her good money to grieve publicly and state the things that her sister Toy stated a LONG TIME ago.

    What the hell? Does this mean any word's that Michael had in his songs can't ever be used by another artist? That would be ridiculous and almost impossible to avoid doing. Who are the dumb-ass's making these stupid claims on behalf of his estate anyway? Michael himself has used lyric's that had been introduced in other artist's music so what's the difference is it because he is dead? What difference would that make? It is okay that Michael has plastic surgery to make himself look like Diana Ross and Liz Taylor so what's the difference? He can steal their face's but a person can't use his lyric's how ridiculous!!

    STFU about Michael. Let him RIP; his family is only trying to grab money from all the publicty over his death. And everyone keeps talking about the trashy family so that means they will only be getting more money. Just leave it all the hell alone.

    Michael looks so happy and beautiful in this picture with Janet. Actually he looks better than Janet with his makeup on.
