Will.i.am Against Posthumous Michael Jackson Album's Release

The man makes a very good point!

As we all know, a posthumous Michael Jackson is set to be released in November, and there's been a lot of discussion about whether or not the late singer's estate is taking things a little too far!

One such opponent is Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am, who collaborated with the King of Pop, and he explains:

"I don't think that should ever come out. That's bad. He was a perfectionist and he wouldn't have wanted it that way. How you gonna release Michael Jackson when Michael Jackson ain't here to bless it? Now that he is not part of the process, what are they doing? Why would you put a record out like that? Because he was a friend of mine, I just think that's disrespectful. What's wrong with what he already contributed to the world? You don't disrespect someone when they're gone. … How much can you suck from his energy? … Freaking parasites!"

We definitely understand where he's coming from! There is certainly a lot of demand for any music that Michael may have been working on, but we're not sure we're comfortable with it coming out without his blessing, either!

What do U think?? Is it wrong to release new Michael Jackson music without him being around to give his approval?

    Yes, parasitas Freaking! Leave Mihael Jackson alone!!!!



  2. 2

    …who cares, maybe it will actually sound good if MJ didn't have anything to do with it….

    …and where is this guys neck…ewww…..



  3. 3

    are we kissing some ass now Perez?

    Maybe Will should pay MJ estate's debt



  5. 5

    who f'in cares



  6. 6

    Isn't this the guy who gave you the beating you so richly deserved?



  7. 7

    I completely agree! They should not release those unless Michael Jackson said they could. That's like taking someone's personal journal and releasing it to the world AFTER they die without them even knowing. This is not okay.



  8. 8

    I agree with Will I Am b/c Michael was a perfectionist and that music more then likely wasn't released because he wasn't satisfied with it from the beginning. However, some of us fans just want to hear everything he had. Speaking for myself it's a little selfish for feeling that way when I know how much of a perfectionist Michael was but I just love hearing any and everything from him. He was a genious! and even the things that he might have felt wasn't good enough, I think us fans will love. Also I just want to hear his voice again *tear* I know I could easilly hear his voice on any of the other records he personally put out but hearing something new of his is a totally different feeling. Alot of people weren't happy with This is It being released b/c it showed Michael rehearsing and not going full out (though he looked like he was.) Will I Am makes some very valid points though. Perez, you should just shut up! If Michael hadn't passed away and had done those shows and released new music you would have attacked him like always.



  9. 9

    That's a tough one for me. On one hand I totally understand what Will is saying, and MJ was undeniably a perfectionist and I'm guessing hadn't released this music before for a reason. However, I am a huge fan and really would like to hear new music from MJ. So which way do I lean…I guess I just wish that he was alive to be able to work on it himself. Michael Jackson would have wanted nothing but the best not cheap, hastily produced versions of his songs.



  10. 10

    IMO it makes him sound bitter that he has nothing to do with this new album. what there doing with MJ is no different then what they do with 2Pac.
    besides if i remember right…doesnt MJ have some debt? releasing new music isnt a bad thing here.



  11. 11

    What's wrong with releasign his music. They do that with plenty of artists. He stored all thsi music away for the world to hear one day and to be a financial safety net for his children to ensure they would always have money. There are milions of fans that want to hear this music. Will.I.Am is wrong. This is what M.J. would have wanted.



  12. 12

    Dont like him or his music but he has a point. Michael Jackson was a perfectionist, its just a way for them to make $. That ain't right people!



  13. 13

    This guy has been on my bad side ever since he 'punched' Perez.



  14. 14

    i would love to hear new music…

    but when i think of it like that will.i.am is so true!
    michael jackson has done enough! keep them for his kids!



  15. 15

    He has a point but the estate also needs a way to clear up all of Michael's debt as well. It's a catch 22 situation really. damned if they do. damned if they don't

  16. heyo! says – reply to this


    16

    I mean yeah I want there to be another Michael Jackson album, but Will.i.am has a point. If this isn't what Michael would of wanted, then I respect that. I'm not looking to take advantage of him.



  17. 17

    uhm i dont care about michael he is a pedofile but why not share the music rather than let it stay in the vaul. wil i am is a stupid ngger



  18. 18

    LOL! This is all too funny. Even in "death" MJ CONTINUES to be media fodder.

    Ask will.i.am if MJ is dead or alive.

    Who REALLY is behind the scene now and silently calling the shots?

    Think about it.



  19. 19

    They know he wouldnt want them to, they clearly do not care.

    The people in control, his family and the lawyers etc., obviously want money…

    He was a perfectionist, and if it was unfinished stuff, that is really ridiculous. Firstly, how good could it be if he didn't finish working on it??
    Second, he wouldn't want people to hear something he wasn't finished with and satisfied with. It would be improper to do so.



  20. 20

    Oh please, like Will.I.Am cares. He's just afraid a Michael Jackson album will keep the BEP off of the number one spot. Will is a selfish piece.



  21. 21

    would someone please close the blinds on his face?



  22. 22

    OMG he totally has a point, let him rest in peace and stop sucking everything out of his memory, this isnt tupac or biggie we're talking about, christ



  23. 23

    It sucks that we have to decide that we will buy MJ's music and keep his legacy a live or to ignore his unreleased material and let his legacy deminish , so to speak. For starters, MJ is OUT of debt, and that was 4 months after he died, his estate made over a billion dollars in less than a year after his death, so, they aren't exactly hurting for money. Secondly MJ unreleased music is just as good as his released songs. Just because it's unreleased doesn't mean it isn't any good, MJ just over recorded songs for his albums, that's all. Mj is God)

    Freaking parasites when he was alive and still are when he died. Off course I would like to listen to MJ's music, his music was like **** even when it's bad it's still good. But if he didn't want it to be released we should respect that! And btw Sony/Mottola sucks!!!!!



  26. 26

    Re: cozmo
    That's a lie. MJ was never broke. Don't believe everything you read in the media..



  27. 27

    I don’t agree with Will on this one. Michael has well over a 100 songs left over from sessions he recorded from the Thriller album and other records. As a huge fan of Michael’s, I want to hear that music. At this point, it’s about keeping Michael’s legacy alive and what better way to do that then to release new music? I am so excited about hearing it!

    Yo're a racist and you don”t know the facts. Anyway karma will hit you soon. Read my typed words…

    Re: me0101
    Illuminati, yes. MJ hated them. His Dangerous and Blood On The Dancefloor cover say enough with all the symbolism he used. Like he sang in ”Money”: They'd Kill Me For The Money.

    i didnt think about it before but i think that they should not release it and respect what he has already given to this world. if michael wanted to release it, he would have done it



  31. 31

    Hey Perez, remember when you got all up in Will's face and sniveled something like "OH YEAH?? WELL YOU'RE A FA@@OT. Remember then someone knocked you upside the head? Remember right after that you put up your stupid video of you crying like a little puzzy? That was funny. I hope someone beats the shit out of you next time and you can cry on the internet again. That would be really funny.



  32. 32

    I do not agree with Will.i.am. because Michael Jackson's voice was precious and I do want to hear all of his new songs.



  33. 33

    Re: MJfanaticRe: MJ fan59 – ha ha ha ha
    ha ha ……You two little Micikey Jackson FREAKS!!!! MJFan59, you are insane, you act like you knew him ha ha ha keep on dreaming. and MJFuckedantic, you are torn between buying it or not? ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha hah h aha

    JUST ANOTHER DEAD PEDOPHILE, THANKS FOR THE MUSIC, ASSHOLE



  34. 34

    I agree with Will.i.am



  35. 35

    Let's get a crew together, wedge that vault open and drag that dead pedophiles lifeless 119lb 'bad' ass around behind a car. A FAST car.



  36. 36

    Re: Jazz-hands Chaz – "Let's get a crew together, wedge that vault open and drag that dead pedophiles lifeless 119lb 'bad' ass around behind a car. A FAST car."

    Perfect example as to why I told you on the last MJ post that you trolled on to go seek help. You have just been waiting for Perez to make another MJ post haven't you? I will still hold firm to the believe that you are more of a (fan)atic of Michael then any of us fans put together. Your obsession is sickening.



  37. 37

    Re: MJfanatic – "Jazz-hands" called us out because they get a kick out of replying to us fans. I don't know if you saw the last MJ post but this weirdo really showed out. I guess me and other fans overwhelmed "Jazz-hands" with more facts then their brain could handle because all of the sudden "Jazz-hands" replies detailed irrelevent things like Bank of America, mushrooms, Britney Spears, and Milli Vanilli. Not to mention the psychotic laughing (As you can see) and repetitive closings. This troll seeks constant attention and if you decide not to reply back to them or in their eyes take too long to reply, they will bombard you with contant jibberish.



  38. 38

    Re: ScreamVengeance

    Uhh Anne Frank? LOL. But I do agree with you, so I mean no offense.



  39. 39

    stop sucking up perez



  40. 40

    Gee Will, why dont u tell Tupac's, Elvis's and The Beatles eatate to stop releasing stuff?



  41. 41

    Oh My Fucking Go Perez, don't you understand that Michael Jackson willed it to open his secret vault to make his estate rich for his kids and his debts.

    Jesus Fucking CHirst, Michael Jackson Wanted this.



  42. 42

    The industry doesn't care they just want the money in the end. They shouldn't be releasing it but their going to anyway so…

    I think he is right but wasn't MJ killed for that?

    Wooooooo gooooooooo will i am!!! at least he is not afraid to say it!!!
    i can see where he is coming from but i would still be first in line to buy any of michaels music, and i guess that is why they are releasing his music because they know that myself and millions of other fans will buy it.
    however, as for the music not being good enough by mj`s standards to be put out, im not sure thats the case, it was well known he recorded lots of songs when he made an album, but obviosly only 10 or so songs can go on an album, he had to choose which ones he wanted, im sure this wasnt an easy choice, the other songs may have been up to his standards but just wasnt room for them perhaps?! but then i suppose one could argue that if they were up to stratch then he would have released other albums with them. i dont know. but whatever, im buying it :D



  46. 46

    Re: Jazz-hands Chaz – awww here you are again!! typing michael jackson into your search bar! and clearly "guarding" his page.
    and yes, keep thanking him for the music, and like i said before, bow down to the one and only undisputed king of pop and kiss his arse! :D



  47. 47

    I thought you hated Will I Am for allegedly beating you up. Yet you are always kissing his/black eyed peas ass now.

  48. Moron says – reply to this


    48

    I agree with Will,but unfortunately that is why MJ was killed for…



  49. 49

    Isn't this the same asshole who was trying to force people to adopt Haitian kids? Who in the hell does he think he is? I don't care one way or another if any new MJ records are released, but this guy seems to think he has control of the world.



  50. 50

    "Will I Aint" SUCKS!!!!!!!!…He isn't fucking worthy of working with MJ!!!!!!!
    Everything he has put out is mediocre crap….makes me puke



  51. 51

    I'm with will.i.am. If there weren't any clear-cut instructions from Michael with regards to the release of this material after his death, then people should just let it go. I have my This Is It video and Thriller on CD, so I'm happy with that.



  52. 52

    i essentially agree with him but he has a lot of fans who just want to hear SOMETHING



  53. 53

    I do have to agree…Michael knew exactly what he wanted his music to sound like…..let him rest.

  54. npc25 says – reply to this


    54

    what a dick, it was in his will to his kids…the unrleased music was part of the trust fund he put in place for his kids.
    clearly Will I wish i WAS, was NOT that close a friend



  55. 55

    Shut the fuck up Will no1 cares what u have to say. I for 1 want to hear everything MJ ever recorded!



  56. 56

    even without MJ's final "blessing" of the mixed tracks, you know that's going to be some good shit. it might not be the second coming of Thriller, but the MJ vaults have got to have some serious gold in them. besides, didn't he record music that he didn't want released until after he was dead, so that the profits would go to his kids?
