  1. Sony’s Michael Jackson Bet Gets Complicated Michael Jackson had been one of Sony Music Entertainment’s brightest stars before his 2009 death. And the seven-year, $250 million deal it struck with Jackson’s estate in 2018 to continue distributing his recordings was one of the biggest the industry had seen in some time. But now, following the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, Sony’s Jackson bet is looking like a risky play, the WSJ reports. The two-part film (which was the third-largest premiere of any HBO doc in a decade) details the claims of two men alleging Jackson sexually abused them as boys. And in the era of #MeToo and #MuteRKelly, sales, streaming, and commercial use of Jackson’s music could fall... Which means lost business for Sony. Several radio stations in Canada and New Zealand have stopped playing Jackson, and (believe it or not) radio is still a big moneymaker for music companies—Deloitte estimates global radio revenue will climb to $40 billion this year, with more than 85% of adults listening to radio once a week.
  2. In the new HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, both men accuse the late singer of sexual abuse. On Sunday, HBO will debut its two-part documentary Leaving Neverland, featuring interviews with two of Michael Jackson's former child companions. The documentary focuses on James Safechuck and Wade Robson, who filed lawsuits claiming they were sexually abused as boys at the Neverland Ranch. It also follows their families, who speak at length about their entanglement with Jackson, in the aftermath of the scandal. According to Slate, Safechuck and Robson both say in the film that Jackson promised them jewelry in exchange for sexual favors. The men also allege that Jackson, who died in 2009, told them they could go to jail if they spoke out. These accusations weren't new. On two other occasions, Jackson was hit with lawsuits alleging abuse. But in 2005, Jackson was acquitted of criminal molestation charges, which did not involve Robson or Safechuck. Robson testified at the trial, saying he had slept in Jackson’s room many times and nothing happened. Safechuck gave a similar statement to investigators when he was young.

  3. One of Mercury’s longtime idols was the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson. Mercury had admired Jackson all the way back to his Jackson 5 days, and in 1983, barely a year after Jackson’s Thriller had become the biggest album in the world, Mercury got the chance to collaborate with Jackson. They began recording three demos that were, sadly, never completed. Asked in 1987 why things didn’t work out, Mercury evasively blamed the fact that the two stars were never being in the same country long enough and commented that Jackson had “retreated into his own little world.” Another story emerged wherein Jackson had allegedly picked a fight with Mercury after catching him using substances during the recording session. A third explanation, from Queen manager Jim Beach, stated that Jackson brought his pet llama into the studio, which astonished and frustrated Mercury’s attempts to record. Turns out you shouldn’t ever meet your heroes.
  4. Robson was only 5 years old when he met Jackson after being called up on stage at a concert in Brisbane, Australia. The boy was a fan of Jackson and impressed the crowds with his spot-on “Smooth Criminal” dance performance. Jackson invited Robson and his mom up to his hotel room after the concert. Nothing happened that night, but Jackson told the Robsons to get in touch if they ever came to America. In January 1990, when Wade was 7, the Robsons went to the U.S. for the first time to visit Disneyland. Wade’s mom, Janet, found the number for Jackson’s personal assistant, who said Jackson remembered Wade and invited them to his recording studio in Sherman Oaks. Jackson then invited the family to Neverland for the weekend. Wade stayed at the residence with Jackson while the rest of his family left to tour the Grand Canyon. Robson says that’s when the sexual contact began—and it continued for four years. Read more:

  5. Prince and Michael Jackson were both Midwesterners born in 1958: Prince in Minneapolis, on June 7, and Michael Jackson in Gary, Indiana, on August 29. If you can't tell from this picture, both blew up in the 1970s.
  6. Early tweets I saw were unusually vicious, as in "Welcome to hell, Joe" SOB though he was said to be, though, nobody would have heard of Michael Jackson without him. Raising eight kids in gritty Gary Indiana, where many men walk away; it is not nothing. One wonders whether his son would have been happier had Joe followed another course. It is one of those "which is better off, a live dog or a dead lion?" deals of Bible verse. I wrote something of this long ago:

  7. The estate of deceased music legend Michael Jackson has filed a lawsuit against ABC and Disney over the special “The Last Days of Michael Jackson.” The suit, filed in federal court in California on Wednesday, alleges copyright infringement. The suit says that the plaintiffs — identified as “various companies that comprise a part of the Estate of Michael Jackson –were “genuinely shocked” when they watched the special on March 24. Also Read: Michael Jackson Estate Calls ABC News Special 'Another Crass and Unauthorized Attempt to Exploit' His Legacy Calling the special “a mediocre look back at Michael JacksonÂ’s life and entertainment career,” the suit accuses Disney of swiping the estateÂ’s intellectual property. “Unable to make a compelling presentation about Michael Jackson on its own, Disney decided to exploit the Jackson EstateÂ’s intellectual property without permission or obtaining a license for its use. After all, there is always a healthy audience for Michael JacksonÂ’s timeless music, his ground-breaking videos, and footage of his unforgettable live performances. Why not just use Michael JacksonÂ’s works if one can get advertisers to buy time on the program? But in order to use these valuable assets, a license must be obtained for it by the Estate,” the suit reads. The suit continues, “Like Disney, the lifeblood of the EstateÂ’s business is its intellectual property. Yet for some reason, Disney decided it could just use the EstateÂ’s most valuable intellectual property for free. Apparently, DisneyÂ’s passion for the copyright laws disappears when it doesnÂ’t involve its own intellectual property and it sees an opportunity to profit off of someone elseÂ’s intellectual property without permission or payment. The extent of DisneyÂ’s use of the EstateÂ’s intellectual property in The Last Days of Michael Jackson is truly astounding.” Among the allegedly infringed-on property: substantial portions of Jackson hits including “Billy Jean,” Beat It” and “DonÂ’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” as well as extensive parts of Jackson music videos including “Thriller” and “Black or White.” According to the suit, JacksonÂ’s estate reached out regarding the Jackson material, and was told by a Disney attorney that the material fell under “fair use” because the program was a documentary, a stance that the suit calls “patently absurd”: “Even setting aside DisneyÂ’s blatant hypocrisy given its notorious history regarding third party uses of its own copyrights, DisneyÂ’s argument here is one that would probably make even the founders of Napster pause.” Prior to the airing of the special, the Estate publicly, calling it “another crass and unauthorized attempt to exploit the life, music and image of Michael Jackson without respect for MichaelÂ’s legacy, intellectual property rights or his children.” The estate also noted that “ABC intends to use music and other intellectual property owned by the Estate such as photos, logos, artwork, and more in the program itself, without having licensed the rights to any such material.” However, a spokesperson for the ABC News denied that the contents of the special infringe on their rights. “ABC NewsÂ’ documentary explores the life, career and legacy of Michael Jackson, who remains of great interest to people worldwide. The program does not infringe on his estateÂ’s rights, but as a courtesy, we removed a specific image from the promotional material.” An ABC News spokesperson reiterated that stance when contacted by TheWrap for comment on WednesdayÂ’s lawsuit. : “We have not yet had an opportunity to review the complaint,” the spokesperson said. “The ABC NewsÂ’ documentary explored the life, career and legacy of Michael Jackson, who remains of great interest to people worldwide, and did not infringe on his estateÂ’s rights.”

  8. Sadly, they both died much too young -- Jackson on June 25, 2010, and Prince on April 21, 2016. Rest in peace.
  9. Jackson, the King of Pop, named one of his children Prince, which only fueled speculation about his feelings toward the elder Prince.
  10. "I ain't never had my nose done!" Prince announced at a March 2004 concert, while Jackson was on trial. Some in the crowd took it as a shot at Jackson, who was later found not guilty of the criminal accusations.
  11. Though Prince portrayed himself as dirty-minded, he noted the irony of Michael Jackson being embroiled in scandal in 2004. "What are my contemporaries doing now?" he said in an Associated Press interview, while Jackson was on trial accused of child molestation. "I'm not entangled in a bunch of lawsuits and a web that I can't get out of. I can hold my head up ... a happily married man who has his head in order. There isn't a bunch of scandal in my life."
  12. Michael Jackson played with the concept of revolution, artistically, by dressing like the leader of a military coup. Prince led the Revolution.
  13. Both were Jehovah's Witnesses. Jackson reportedly proselytized door-to-door near his family's home in Encino, Calif. Prince often sang about God and Jesus, including in "I Would Die 4 U." He backed away from some of his dirtier lyrics as he embraced his religion more strongly.
  14. Their race and sexuality were constantly questioned at the peak of their popularity. Both played with the clueless speculation with androgynous wardrobe choices, and their lyrics. "Am I black or white/am I straight or gay?" Prince sang on "Controversy." "Who's black/who's white," Jackson sang on "Black or White."
  15. In 1985, when Prince and Michael Jackson dominated the charts, Prince was criticized for not performing on "We Are the World," a song co-written by Jackson to help starving African children. Prince was reportedly too shy to perform with his fellow artists. Prince & the Revolution did record a gorgeous song for the "We Are the World" album -- "4 the Tears in Your Eyes."
  16. Both Prince and Michael Jackson were crossover artists who were among the only African-Americans whose videos were played in the early days of MTV.
  17. A FAMOUS HISTORICAL COVER ... Õ•Õ•Õ•Õ•Õ•Õ•• (Michael Jackson) •••••••••••••   CLARIFYING:   The American magazine TV Guide, again published in its issue of November 2001 page 20, the historical interview conducted years ago to Michael Jacksón, where still the famous singer claimed to be a Jehovah's Witness. Unfortunately when he received several Grammy awards for his album "Thriller", he was given loving advice in the congregation and he was helped to reason as to what was he most looking for? His fame or being a Jehovah's Witness? since both things could not be compatible with their faith.    Jehovah's Witnesses are not bothered by our relationship with someone as famous as him. And in fact Michael admitted several times in interviews that he had been raised by his mother as a Jehovah's Witness, and that as a child he used to go to meetings, and also that he sometimes preached with his mother from house to house, in fact when I record his album, "Thriller", used to refuse to be convinced and proud to participate in some false popular celebrations, because of his faith, and he referred to the Bible with respect. Although he was never baptized as a Jehovah's Witness.   However, when reflecting on the cost of seeking fame so hard. His sister La Toya Jacksón, older than him and also once famous, wrote in his autobiographical book that once his brother Michael realized that his fame would not be compatible with his faith, he voluntarily signed a letter of resignation to the organization of the Jehovah's Witnesses, because he did not want to lose his fame or give up his artistic career, and he was never seen again in a meeting for the rest of his life.  He was never forced into anything in that organization, only that he considered his personal interests related to his artistic career more important than serving God.   Something remarkable in: Michael Joseph Jackson (Real name) is that his own brothers and their mother affirm that he was generous with some donations for the world work. And I never speak badly or with disdain of the Jehovah's Witnesses. Apparently he never completely lost his hope because some of his successes, and what they had his authorship in lyrics and music, such as "The Earth Song" or The Song of the Earth, in that video initially appreciates the destruction of the earth by the selfishness of man and ends up being restored, and some resurections as seen in spectacular images. And it is not the only song that touches the theme of a different world, without wars, hatreds or evil.   On the other hand the young man who once denounced him for sexual abuse, and took him to court, shortly after the death of Michael Jackson revealed to the media that everything had been a fraud orchestrated by his family, to take advantage of his money and that the artist never abuse him.   In the documentary that recorded the rehearsals of his last tour, "That is it", "That's it", he did not get to perform, he wears a dark shirt with a huge crucifix on his back, which indicates that he never defined his faith. Although he had a spiritual inclination ... (Editing by: Abel Romero Novella).
  18. That brother would know the location, day and time I'm sure. Anyone know?
  19. Thriller es el nombre del sexto álbum del cantante Michael Jackson, el cual se convirtió en el más vendido de todos los tiempos, con ventas estimadas de 100 millones de copias en todo el mundo. Fue lanzado al mercado el 30 de noviembre de 1982, hace 35 años, por Epic Records después del exitoso álbum del intérprete estadounidense Jackson Off Wall de 1979. Por su aniversario de lanzamiento EconomíaHoy.mx te trae 5 datos del éxito del Rey del Pop. 1. La chaqueta roja que Michael Jackson luce en el videoclip fue vendida por casi un millón de dólares. 2. Más que una canción y álbum fue la bisagra que consagró al cantante como el Rey del Pop. 3. El presupuesto para el video fue de más de medio millón de dólares. Para conseguir esa cantidad se vendió el Making Off a los canales musicales MTV y Showtime. 4. Los rollos de la película fueron escondidos por un tiempo por el director John Landis, ya que Jackson quiso destruirlos por violar reglas de su religión, los Testigos de Jehová. 5. En la actualidad se cree que el video ha sido visto por un promedio de 5 billones de personas en todo el mundo.

  20. Alvin John Waples with cousins Crystal Jenious & Andrea Jenious-Wilson *On Saturday, October 21, at a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Woodland Hills, CA, family and close friends said good-bye to Los Angeles (KGFJ, KJLH, KACE), Washington, DC (WMMJ) and Raleigh, NC (Foxy 107-104) radio legend Alvin John Waples who passed away on October 10. IÂ’m sure we have all attended memorial or funeral services where it was obvious the person presiding over the service didnÂ’t actually know the person they were tasked with memorializing. That was not the case with AlvinÂ’s service. The person memorializing Alvin, jazz great Ronnie LawsÂ’ son, grew up hanging around Alvin and his family, since his dad and Alvin were friends. There was mention of AlvinÂ’s sweet tooth, his love of the beach, his love for his family, his declining health as well as his regrets. The talk was very warm and intimate. The comforting words confirmed what most people already knew; that Alvin had touched so many, including Rebbie Jackson, the oldest Jackson sibling and Ronnie Laws and his wife, who were also in attendance. Alvin John Waples & Michael Jackson in the early 70s (photo: George Livingston) The closing prayer was given by AlvinÂ’s son, actor Wesley Jonathan. It was hard, if not impossible, for everyone to not feel his pain as he was overcome with emotion. When the news of AlvinÂ’s passing spread across Los Angeles, although sadness and disbelief were the order of the day, common responses were “he left a legacy” and “he was a voice in the community.” AJW was loved by many. Helen WaplesÂ’ baby boy, high school choir member, talent show winner, former Drake University track star, beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend, may be gone, but heÂ’ll never be forgotten.
