Filed under: Music MinuteMichael Jackson

We're glad that this is the direction that they took with this!

Check out the just-released music video for the latest posthumous Michael Jackson single, Hollywood Tonight (above)!

The clip was directed by Wayne Isham, who was responsible for the late icon's 1995 video You Are Not Alone!

Nice! We think this is a pretty solid tribute to him, and also tells a story that we think that many can relate to in this town!

What do U think?? Do U like the new MJ video??

Randy Jackson Continues To Question The Authenticity Of New Michael Jackson Album!

randy-jackson-continues-to-question-the-authenticity-of-new-michael-jackson-album

We wonder if we'll ever know the truth about this.

Michael Jackson's brother, Randy, was answering questions for fans via his Twitter page, and when the topic of the authenticity of his brother's new album, Michael, came up, he re-affirmed what many of the Jackson family are alleging: that many of the vocals are done by an impersonator!

He wrote:

Me and my nephew were the first to say that it wasn't his voice on some of the tracks

The family and the executers of the Estate, Branca and Mclain are not on the same page

We don't see eye to eye

John McClain insisted that no family members were allowed at his studio where the project was being completed

I became suspicious about the album, when I heard when armed guards were involved since my brothers passing, May he rest in peace.

My first thought was, what are they trying to hide

Teddy Riley was brought in just to mix and insisted on switching studios

At which he called me to come down and hear my brothers music, may he rest in peace.

I heard the music and I immediately said it wasn't his voice

Now McClain points the finger at Sony, when he got the tracks before it even went to Sony

But I think they all know all now it is not him

In fact, when I heard about the Sony deal, it made me sick

Sony has 250 mil reasons to convince the public that it is his voice, if you know what I mean.

Like AEG, they were cutting deals with the Estate before I could get my brother in the ground. May he rest in peace.

Okay, after this Sony deal was inked, McClain went to work putting together the first album

Calling all over the place looking for music with my brothers voice on it

From what I heard, he didn't care about the quality or how complete the vocals were.

Why would Sony sign a 10 album deal over a period of seven years and

McClain couldn't find enough product for one album

If they don't even have enough product for one album how are they going to make 10 albums?

And as to the vocal authenticators, they work for pay. And I wasn't there when they did their analysis

Some of the songs are him, and some aren't. I would be my life on that.

Since my brothers passing, over one billion dollars has been profited.

I want his legacy to be respected as if he were here.

My brother was a perfectionists, and they are paying no regards to quality

Wow! Those are some serious allegations!

And we hate to think that people would be so disrespectful of Michael's memory that they would knowingly release music under his name that he did not perform, but Randy argues a pretty strong case for himself!

So sad and unfortunate.

What do U think?? Are the MJ vocals legit??

Akon Disagrees With will.i.am's Stance On Michael Jackson's New Album!

akon-disagrees-with-williams-stance-on-michael-jackson-posthumous-album-release

will.i.am recently spoke out against the new, posthumous Michael Jackson album, Michael, claiming that the pop icon would not have wanted material that he hadn't given his okay on released, but now Akon, who is featured on the new single, Hold My Hand, has publicly disagreed!

He says:

"I don't see anything disrespectful about it … these albums would have come out if [MJ] was alive or dead so I think this helps to keep his legacy alive."

Inneresting perspective!

What do U think?? Is it appropriate for Sony to release a new Michael Jackson album without his consent??

Will.i.am Speaks Out Against New Michael Jackson Album!

Filed under: R.I.P.Michael JacksonSad SadBusiness Blitz

william-speaks-out-against-new-michael-jackson-album

He makes some very valid points!

will.i.am was lucky enough to have worked with Michael Jackson before the pop icon's tragic passing last year, and recently spoke out against Sony Music for releasing an album of his previously unheard material, because he believes it to be in poor taste!

He explained:

“Whoever put it out and is profiting off of it, I want to see how cold they are, to say that what [Michael] contributed during his life wasn’t enough. He just wasn’t any ordinary artist. He was a hands-on person. To me it’s disrespectful. There’s no honoring. Michael Jackson songs are finished when Michael says they’re finished. Maybe if I never worked with him I wouldn’t have this perspective. He was very particular about how he wanted his vocals, the reverb he used…he was that hands-on.”

We definitely agree with this one - especially after hearing "Breaking News!"

There's obviously a reason that this material wasn't released in the first place, so why do it now, when the man behind it can't be around to give his approval?

Such a shame!

What do U think?? Do U agree with will.i.am??

Michael Jackson Recorded Portions Of New Album Over The Phone?!

michael-jackson-recorded-portions-of-posthumous-album-over-the-phone-to-producers

Wow! This could explain why his kids and mom didn't think that it was him!

Source close to the production of Michael Jackson's posthumous album, Michael, claim that the singer was apparently so concerned about his new material being leaked before it was released that he sang a portion of the songs over VOICEMAIL directly to his producers!

The insider explains:

"A large chunk of the album came from voice mails. Michael was certain new stuff would get out so he decided to sing lyrics down the phone. After Michael's death last year there were question marks over whether the messages would be able to be used. Record bosses were worried whether it would come off at all. Luckily it did, but it hasn't been an easy process."

WTF?

Well no wonder there's so much confusion over authenticity!

We're surprised that they were able to salvage as much as they did!

Unbelievable. Couldn't there have been an easier way to record the vocals privately?

Just another reason they should have never tried to release any new material to begin with!

What do U think?? Should Michael be released??

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

wenn2940904jb.jpg

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?

Joe Jackson Wants Michael's Earnings To Go Public

wenn2724535269.jpg

Can Joe Jackson just STFU already??

Now he wants son Michael Jackson's posthumous earnings to go public because he thinks Michael's estate administrators "are being too secretive" and that "the public has a right to know what the estate is doing in his name."

Since his passing, Michael Jackson's estate has earned around $900 million and an insider has said that "no other artist has ever made that much since they died. It should ensure Michael goes down in history as the greatest artist of all time."

And Joe just wants a piece of the pie!! Get over it!! Your son obviously didn't want you to get a single penny from his estate!
