This is so rad!

Owners of Michael Jackson's former home, Neverland Ranch, are considering turning the estate into a music school for teens. Much like NYC's Julliard, the school would focus on teaching kids, rich and poor, to write and perform music.

The only two things that are getting in the way is whether or not Santa Barbara County will sign off on the project and whether the owners, Colony Capital, will be able to use Michael's name to promote the property.

The good news is that sources from the Michael Jackson estate have expressed interest, saying, "it's an interesting idea and we'd be open to it."

So neat! What do U think? Good or bad idea?

    how is that like juilliard….that doesn't sound like juilliard at all. juilliard is a top performing arts conservatory…..not a "place to write and perform music"



  2. 2

    But they're only going to teach the skin flute.



  3. 3

    I hope they aren't taught to write music for paedophiles…

    Re: je veux te voir – i agree, its nothing like julliard. once again perez doesnt know what hes talking about…-___-



  5. 5

    "rad" ?



  6. 6

    perez clearly has no idea what the Juilliard school is. Its funny he is so uninformed about one of the most important cultural institutions in the world.

    Re: Phibes

    Michael was spoken free from the cases. He is not a pedophile

    wouldn't be the first time 'teens' graced the halls of Neverland…



  9. 9

    OH! IT'S A "FORMER HOME" NOW, YOU STUPID FUCK? A NUMBER OF COMMENTS AGO YOU THOUGHT HIS MOTHER AND KIDS LIVED THERE.

    Seems as though there is a bit of anger toward Mr. Hilton. Have seen a
    marked difference in tone though. Pretty straightforward article here.

    How about the Michael Jackson Conservatory of Music. Sounds about right.

    And, of course, it's not Julliard. Hasn't even been approved yet, if this
    story is in fact true.

    To the juveniles Phibes and Rim_Me_Mario: re-do, re-hash and old tabloid
    garbage spews from your need to be educated selves.

    Well, it beats turning into a Pedophile Park which what some idiotic group wanted to do



  12. 12

    Mouth organ 101 would be a requisite course one can asssume.



  13. 13

    Yeah, so I see you've finally been made aware that Katherine and the kids cannot "move home" to Neverland. LOL



  14. 14

    Michael would have perfered it be younger boys.



  15. 15

    I sure hope they nail shut all those secret hidden rooms & remove the hidden video cameras in the little-boy's-rooms….

    The Jacksons are worse than the Tupac Shakur & Bob Marley families; don't the Jacksons ever go ONE DAY without GREED OVER MICHAEL'S MONEY IN THEIR MINDS?



  17. 17

    Your stupidity never ceases to amaze me. You toss Julliard out there as if it's the name of a music class in a community college. It is so exclusive for the talent it draws you can barely walk past it without having outstanding academic credentials and mad, mad talent. Neverland will probably end up as one those feel-good welfare people places; not quite Julliard status. I'm sure if they want to use M.J.'s name the Jackson family will be perfectly glad to whore it out for $$$.

    First of all, u idiots who blame the Jacksons for greed. The Jacksons have no say in this since they are not the executors. This is NOT Jacksons idea.

    Second, Colony Capital paid of the loan, they dont own Neverland. MJ still owns 51% of Neverland so he has the final say… colony act like they run this place. smh

    @ Pam's leaking Silicone Breasts…
    "all those secret hidden rooms"?? Michael didnt have secret hidden rooms, there was 1 safe room which led from his bedroom… so what? Lots of rich celebs have rooms like this and for your information the safe room at neverland was not built by Michael! it was built by William Bone who owned Neverland (formally Sycamore Vally Ranch) BEFORE Michael.
