  • Michael Jackson: Seine Kinder haben Spaß in Las Vegas

    Die Kinder von Michael Jackson haben das vergangene Wochenende (22./23.08.) in Las Vegas verbracht. Begleitet wurden Prince Michael, Paris und "Blanket" von ihrer Großmutter Katherine.

    Wie die US-Zeitschrift "People" berichtet, vergnügten die Drei sich mit Freunden im Poolbereich des Palms Casino Resorts. Abends waren die Kids dann mit Oma und Onkel Jermaine im exklusiven Steakhouse "N9NE2" essen. Michael Jackson starb am 25. Juni in Los Angeles. Das Sorgerecht für seine drei Kinder hat seitdem seine Mutter Katherine.

    • MADONNA - MICHAEL JACKSON 'TOO SHY' FOR MADONNA

      'Revolver' singer Madonna never recorded a duet with Michael Jackson because he was scared of her ''provocative'' music.

      Madonna thought Michael Jackson was "too shy".

      The 'Revolver' singer spent weeks working with the 'King of Pop' several years ago, but never recorded a duet with him because Michael was scared of Madonna's "provocative" music.

      The 51-year-old star recalled: "We spent a chunk of time together, and became friends, but it never happened. I wrote a bunch of words and presented them to him, and he didn't want to go there.

      "He didn't want to be provocative. And I said, 'Well, why come to me?' I mean, that's like asking Quentin Tarantino to not put any violence in his films. I felt like he was too inhibited, too shy."

      Madonna paid tribute to Michael - who died in June of acute propofol intoxication - in an emotional speech at the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this month.

      Even though she used the occasion to "say goodbye" to her old friend, the star admits she can't stop thinking about Michael, and the torment he faced at the hands of the media.

      She told Britain's Times newspaper: "When I heard he had died, the first thing that came into my head was the word 'abandoned'. I feel like we all abandoned him and put him in a box and labelled him as a strange person.

      "And it used to pain me to see people go write such horrible things about him, accuse him of being a child molester, and all these things that nobody had any proof of because I've had plenty of things I've been accused of.

      "When I adopted David, I was accused of kidnapping him, for God's sakes; and it's very hurtful, and people love to jump on bandwagons. The lynch-mob mentality is pretty scary."

      • MICHAEL JACKSON - JACKSON'S ESTATE SUED BY SECURITY FIRM

        JACKSON'S ESTATE SUED BY SECURITY FIRM

        MICHAEL JACKSON's estate is facing another creditor's claim from a Las Vegas security firm over an outstanding 2008 bill.
        The late King of Pop is accused of failing to pay Steven Echols DBA Security Measures $261,169 (£174,113) after company bosses provided round-the-clock assistance to Jackson and his three kids, reports TMZ.com.
        Legal documents recently filed in the late singer's probate case state Jackson racked up a bill of $119,000 (£79,335) in September 2008 alone, while he reportedly owed another $99,000 (£66,000) for the following month (Oct08).
        The security bill is the latest financial matter the pop star's estate has had to deal with - last week (ends18Sep09), Jackson's personal hair stylist, Lynda Parrish, also lodged a claim for unpaid wages.

          Michael Jackson: Ein King of Pop zum Nachtisch


          Seit dem Tod Michael Jacksons taucht eine skurrile Geschichte nach der anderen auf. Da kommen Neuigkeiten an der musikalischen Front gerade recht.

          "You and I must make a pact. We must bring salvation back. Whenever you need me, I'll be there." Schon eine Weile ist es her, dass Michael Jackson diesen Song mit den Jackson 5 performte. Seit seinem Tod im vergangenen Juni könnte man das Wort "salvation" auch gegen "money" austauschen. Denn er ist mehr denn je für alle da, die an seinem Namen verdienen wollen: An jeder Ecke billige Michael-Shirts, sein Gesicht wird mittlerweile gar auf Crêpes abgebildet. Is this scary?

          Das Musical "Thriller - Live" gastiert momentan in Köln. Innerhalb von zwei Stunden werden 33 Hits von Michael Jackson zum Besten gegeben. Vier Schauspieler schlüpfen dabei in die Rolle des Megastars. "Thriller" scheint da noch zu den ehrlichsten Hommagen zu gehören.

          Doku-Soap und neues Doppelalbum
          Verantwortlich für die posthume Ausschlachtung ist auch Jacksons eigene Familie. Nach peinlichem Tribute-Heckmeck von Jermaine Jackson etwa planen die Brüder laut dem Kölner Express nun eine Reality-Soap mit dem schlichten Titel "The Jackson Dynasty".

          Ebenso erscheint der bisher unveröffentlichte Song "This Is It" am 12. Oktober, zwei Wochen später folgt der gleichnamige Film. Der Streifen, der um die Probeszenen für das ursprünglich geplante Comeback gebaut ist, läuft nur zwei Wochen in den Kinos.

          Parallel zum Film erscheint ein Doppelalbum: Die erste CD enthält bekannte Jacksons-Hits, die als "This Is It"-Soundtrack fungieren. Auf CD zwei finden sich bislang unveröffentlichte Versionen seiner Klassiker sowie das von Jackson vorgetragene Gedicht "Planet Earth".

          150.000 Dollar für ein Michael-Abbild?
          Neben den bisher unveröffentlichten Aufnahmen steht nun auch ein Bild von Andy Warhol zur Versteigerung bereit, berichtet Undercover. Darauf zu sehen: ein Bildnis des King of Pop. Es ist das erste Mal, dass das Porträt zu einer Auktion frei gegeben wird, weswegen man mit einem Umsatz von 125.000 bis 150.000 Dollar rechnet. Die Dollar-Zeichen im Auge

          "Jackson bejubelt Adolf.H als Genie"
          Schmutziger gehts immer: Der britischen Sun zufolge existieren Tonbandaufnahmen, auf denen Jackson Adolf als "Genie" bezeichnet. Obwohl Jackson "nur" erklärt, dass es faszinierend sei, wenn ein einzelner Mensch so viele andere auf einen falschen Weg führen könne und sich demnach in keiner Sekunde auf die Seite Adolfs stellt, reicht für die Schlagzeile "Jackson bejubelt Adolf.H als Genie in einem verlorenen Tape" natürlich aus.

          Über 30 Stunden weiteres Material stehen angeblich noch zur Verfügung - die ein oder andere Headline steht wohl noch bevor.

          Ein Jackson zum Vernaschen
          Künstler der Biennale Lyon lenkten die Aufmerksamkeit jüngst auf ihre Kreationen, indem sie nebenher Crêpes mit Jacksons Konterfei aus Schokolade anboten, weiß der Spiegel. Wems schmeckt.

          Da interessiert uns schon eher, dass Janet Jackson und Madonna offenbar ein Duett zu Ehren des von uns gegangenen King of Pop planen. Fortsetzung folgt.

            • "Verdanke Jackson mein Leben" (Johnny Hallyday)

              Samstag, 26. September 2009

              "Verdanke Jackson mein Leben"
              Krebs-OP nach Popstar-Tod

              Der französische Rockstar Johnny Hallyday konnte frühzeitig wegen Darmkrebs operiert werden, weil Versicherer nach dem Tod von Michael Jackson einen vollständigen Gesundheitscheck verlangten. Das Problem sei ausgestanden, sagte der 66-Jährige der Zeitschrift "Télé Star". "Ich verdanke mein Leben Michael Jackson".
              Nach dem Tod der Pop-Legende Michael Jackson hätten die Versicherer seiner Abschiedstournee "Tour 66" diese Kontrolle verlangt. Dabei hätten die Ärzte den kleinen Krebs am Grimmdarm entdeckt. Hallyday: "Man hat ihn entfernt und es ist vorbei."

              Auf Abschiedstour

              Der in der Schweiz lebende Belgier hatte im Sommer zehn Tage in einem Krankenhaus des Pariser Nobelvororts Neuilly verbracht. Damals wurde erklärt, Hallyday benötige eine Ruhepause. Der Rocksänger sei auf seiner Jacht gestürzt und habe sich das Hüftgelenk verrenkt.
              Hallyday gehört zu den Stars, mit denen sich Präsident Nicolas Sarkozy umgibt. Er hatte zum Nationalfeiertag unter dem Eiffelturm ein Konzert gegeben. Die Operation habe sein Leben verändert, sagte Hallyday. Vieles, was zuvor wichtig war, sei nun nebensächlich. "Ich sage mir, dass man in der Gegenwart leben, glücklich sein und Liebe geben muss." Hallydays Abschiedstournee läuft bis Februar 2010.

              • Michael jackson - jackson honoured by hindus

                Hindu fans have given MICHAEL JACKSON a belated, sacred send-off in India.
                Fans dedicated a pind-daan ritual to the King of Pop at the holy city of Bodh Gaya as part of last week's (ends25Sep09) pitrapaksh festivities.

                The peace ceremony was conducted at the 220 year old Vishnupad Temple on the banks of the Falgu River in Bihar, and led by a priest, who is a devotee of the King of Pop.

                Hindu statesman Rajan Zed tells WENN, "Several celebrities have offered prayers here in the past for the salvation of their ancestors, including the Bollywood superstar Shatrughan Sinha.

                "Hindus believe that pind-daan, performed during the fortnight long pitrapaksh period, brings relief to departed souls. Around one million people from all over the world congregate in Bodh Gaya for pind-daan annually. After taking bath in a nearby kund (reservoir), the pilgrims perform pind-daan, involving religious rites for the peace of souls of one's parents and ancestors.

                "Michael Jackson’s personal life might had been controversial, but he did provide joy to a large populace of the world through his music.

                "Furthermore, he had a special bond with India and Hinduism. According to reports, he was reading India’s first Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore’s poems during the last days of his life and he collaborated with Oscar winner A. R. Rahman. He reportedly learned how to meditate and was vegetarian."

                  JACKSON'S FORMER LAWYERS DEMAND $341,452 FROM ESTATE

                  Executives at the law firm which defended MICHAEL JACKSON during his 2005 child molestation trial are demanding $341,452 (GBP227,635) in unpaid fees from the late star's estate.
                  Los Angeles-based law firm Mesereau & Yu filed court documents on Friday (25Sep09) claiming the sum is owed for work on the case between July 2005 and February 2006, reports TMZ.com.
                  The case blighted Jackson's personal life until his tragic death in June (09) - causing many of his former friends and fans to keep their distance from the King of Pop.
                  Jackson was acquitted on 14 charges of child molestation in June 2005 - a year-and-a-half after he was accused.

                    MICHAEL JACKSON - COLLECTOR SUES OVER SCRAPPED JACKSON AUCTION

                    The bosses of an auction house forced to pull a MICHAEL JACKSON property and memorabilia sale two months before the King of Pop's death have been hit with a lawsuit from a bitter bidder who feels 170 of the items belong to him.
                    Julien's Auctions owners agreed to scrap the April (09) sale over a dispute about the ownership of the 1,390 items taken from Jackson's Neverland Ranch home.
                    Company boss Darren Julien returned all the items to the King of Pop's estate, and now collector Richard Lapointe insists some of the memorabilia should have come his way.
                    He claims to have placed the highest bids on 170 - and now he's demanding $5 million (£3.3 million) for the humiliation of not landing the items.
                    Lapointe has filed a lawsuit against Jackson's estate and Julien's Auctions, according to TMZ.com.
                    In court papers, the bidder claims Julien's bosses notified him in writing that his registration was complete and his bids had been received before they scrapped the sale.
                    Lapointe claims the $5 million he's asking for is the "true market value of the items" he was bidding on.
                    Meanwhile, Darren Julien says, "He called us the day the auction was cancelled and told us he has been emotionally damaged, and he asked what we would do to compensate for it. If he is that emotionally damaged, he can bet on the items when they come back up for auction on November 21st."

                    • MICHAEL JACKSON - JACKSON ESTATE FACING NEW LEGAL CLAIM

                      MICHAEL JACKSON's estate administrators are facing yet another lawsuit from a disgruntled former employee of the late King Of Pop.
                      Don Stabler claims he was hired by the Thriller icon's brother Randy in 2004 to sort out Jackson's tax issues - but was never paid for the work.
                      Legal documents filed at Los Angeles County Superior Court on Wednesday (070ct09) show Stabler alleges he is owed $180,400 (£120,270) for the 632 hours of work he put into helping Jackson, according to TMZ.com.
                      The pop star's estate is also dealing with recent claims from a Las Vegas security firm over an outstanding 2008 bill and Jackson's personal hair stylist.

                      • OZZY OSBOURNE - MICHAEL LOOK-A-LIKE LA TOYA JACKSON

                        Ozzy Osbourne says La Toya Jackson looked more like her late brother Michael at the time of his death than he did.

                        Ozzy Osbourne wishes La Toya Jackson had dressed up as her brother Michael at the pop icon's funeral.

                        The former Black Sabbath rocker claims the siblings bare an uncanny resemblance to each other due to all the plastic surgery they have had, and thinks La Toya could pass for her brother in the right clothes.

                        He said: "Look at Michael Jackson by the end - he looked nothing like himself. His sister La Toya looked more like him than he did. Wouldn't it have been great if she'd dressed up as him at the funeral and really freaked everyone out?"

                        Michael passed away on June 25 of acute Propofol intoxication.

                        Despite his comments, Ozzy has no problem with plastic surgery - his wife Sharon has spent £300,000 on procedures, while he has had his double chin removed - but he warns it can be addictive.

                        He explained to Britain's Glamour magazine: "My philosophy is that if, when you look in the mirror, all you can see is the double chin or the big nose, and it makes your life easier to have them cut off, do it. But like tattoos, once you have one, you have two, you have three..."

                        • PAUL ANKA - ANKA UPSET ABOUT JACKSON'S THIS IS IT

                          Legendary singer/songwriter PAUL ANKA isn't a fan of MICHAEL JACKSON's new song - because it's "ripped off" from a tune he co-wrote with the King of Pop in 1983.

                          The administrators of Jackson's estate acknowledged This is It is a rehash of Anka's I Never Heard after the crooner went public with his feelings about the tune, which was passed off as a Jackson hit when it was leaked online over the weekend.

                          John Branca tells TMZ.com, "We acknowledge that Michael and Paul wrote this song together."

                          And his fellow administrator, John MCClain, has told Anka they'll do whatever he needs them to do to make sure the world knows the history of the track.
                          Anka tells the website MCClain knew Jackson couldn't have written the song alone, because "it's not his style".

                          The singer/songwriter says, "(He said) 'We'll give you whatever you want; whatever it takes, we'll do the right thing.'"

                          Anka wrote the song with Jackson at his studio in Carmel, California. He claims he was hoping to use the track on his duets album, Walk a Fine Line, but the King of Pop "stole the tapes" from the studio.

                          Anka contacted lawyers who ironically represented him and his songwriting partner and threatened them with a lawsuit if he didn't get the tapes back. Anka got them back but insists Jackson made a copy of the tapes and simply recorded his vocal over the original and retitled the tune.

                          The song, I Never Heard, has already been recorded by little-known artist Safire.

                          • Michael Jackson: Helen Harris-Scott fordert 50 Millionen von den Nachlassverwaltern

                            Oktober 14, 2009 | Newsman | MJackson.NET | TIK Online | Tmz.com |

                            Nicht weniger als 50 Millionen Dollar. Diese Summe fordert Helen Harris-Scott laut „TMZ.com“ von den Nachlassverwaltern des Jackson-Vermögens.

                            Ihre Forderungen begründete die Dame damit, dass Michael Jackson mit ihr durch seine Musik kommuniziert habe.

                            Harris-Scott ist in der Jackson-Familie keine Unbekannte. Bereits 2006 verklagte sie den King of Pop, weil er sie angeblich verfolgte und mit Wanzen abhören ließ. Jackson hätte sogar Berufskriminelle engagiert, um sie überwachen zu lassen. Damals forderte sie schlanke 100 Millionen Dollar.

                            • David gest holding jackson auction

                              David Gest is putting 18 pieces of rare Michael Jackson memorabilia up for auction to raise money for two children's charities.

                              David Gest is auctioning a collection of rare Michael Jackson memorabilia.

                              The 56-year-old star, who was good friends with the late pop icon, has decided to part ways with a series of items he has collected over the years and will donate proceeds of the sale to charities Liverpool Unites and the Variety Club.

                              David said: "I am delighted to donate this rare Michael Jackson memorabilia from my personal collection to two very worthwhile charities that I strongly support - I wanted to do something special for children that are in need.

                              "Liverpool has become a second home to me and that is why I have chosen Liverpool Unites alongside the national Variety Club charity, and my best friend Michael Jackson would have agreed."

                              Among the items David is selling is an original vinyl 'Thriller' album which has never been played.

                              A never-before-seen photograph of the 'King of Pop' - who died of acute Propofol intoxication on June 25 - is also being sold-off.

                              The picture in framed with a veil, and is signed "Michael Jackson 1998".

                              Another picture of the Jackson family, including all their autographs, is also being made available.

                              David added: "If I can even put a smile on one child's face, then I am a better man today than I was yesterday. I hope you will all join in and bid for these one-of-a-kind items that will help raise the much needed funds these charities so richly deserve."

                              The auction of 18 items began last Friday (09.10.09) and runs until Monday October 19.

                              Liverpool Unites aims to improve the lives of underprivileged children and young people in the UK city, while the Variety Club - which has been running for 60 years - helps sick, disabled and disadvantaged children and young people.

                                The memorabilia collector suing California auction house Julien's over a scrapped MICHAEL JACKSON auction has now filed legal action against the King of Pop's estate.
                                Richard Lapointe claims he placed the highest bids on 170 items, and last week (ends09Oct09) he demanded $5 million (£3.3 million) from Julien's boss Darren Julien for the humiliation of not landing the items.
                                Now he's asking for another $5 million from Jackson's estate.
                                Julien's Auctions owners agreed to scrap the April (09) sale over a dispute about the ownership of the 1,390 items taken from Jackson's Neverland Ranch home.
                                Company boss Darren Julien returned all the items to the King of Pop's estate.
                                In initial court papers, the bidder claims Julien's bosses notified him in writing that his registration was complete and his bids had been received before they scrapped the sale.
                                Lapointe claims the $5 million he's asking for is the "true market value of the items" he was bidding on.

                                JACKSON HEARING POSTPONED OVER EXECUTORS' DECISION-MAKING

                                A California judge has postponed a hearing over the administration of MICHAEL JACKSON's estate, to clarify family matriarch KATHERINE JACKSON's ability to challenge executors' decision-making power.
                                The Jacksons mum was awarded temporary administration in the days immediately following the singer's death on 25 June (09), but she lost her fight to remain in charge of the Thriller hitmaker's estate weeks later when a Los Angeles judge handed over his affairs to the star's attorney John Branca and veteran music executive John MCClain, who the King of Pop named as his executors in a 2002 will.
                                Branca and MCClain's lawyers claim they have already been given court permission to make day-to-day decisions about the estate without requiring them to go to court.
                                However, challenges from Katherine Jackson have prompted the pair to ask a judge to restate their powers.
