Jacko Loves Paul -- Yeah Yeah Yeah

1/4/2009 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Those who said Paul McCartney would only regain the rights to the Beatles catalog over Michael Jackson's dead body may have been right.


Sources close to Jackson tell the Mirror Jacko wants to end his 24-year feud with McCartney by leaving his remaining share of the Beatles library to Paul in his will. Jacko snaked McCartney back in 1985 in a bidding war for full ownership of the roughly $700 million Lennon-McCartney songbook

If the rumors about Michael's health problems are true it might not be too much longer before McCartney can sing "Hey Jude" without paying a fee.

The Topic Rehab Center wishes everyone a Happy New Year and encourages vigorous high levels of self-esteem and social activism as a fundamental of democracy. In such a vision, it becomes necessary to hijack topics in forums that suffer from lack of imagination, social responsibility or commitment level. Michael Jackson stories are stories are of no value.

IF YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED IN TOPICS THAT WILL CHANGE THE WORLD TO MAKE IT A BETTER PLACES, GOOGLE THESE TOPICS: "bucky paper", "solar panels", "A Whole New Brain" (book), green jobs, hot peppers, organic food, Edward de Bono, water scarcity, Naomi Wolf, Dr. Helen Caldicott, and "Creature From Jeckyl Island".

Ok. First of all, why is Micheal Jackson so broke if he holds the full ownership of the roughly $700 million Lennon-McCartney songbook? He could have just auctioned it off and pay his bills. He would have climbed back on the top. Paul McCartney can just buy them back at auctions if he wants it back. But, It was nice of Micheal Jackson to add it on his will that Paul McCartney can inherit his songbook back after Micheal Jackson dies. End of the story.

Leave it to TMZ to read the sleaziest tabloids ever just to dig up 'news'! First, Michael Jackson only has 50% ownership of the catalog so it would not be his decision to hand over the Beatles songs even if he wanted, it would also be Sony's decision and they would be absolute fools to do such a thing. Second, the catalog contains hundreds of thousands of famous songs from all artists new and old, the Beatles represent only a very small fraction of the total songs in that catalog that Michael gets royalties from. Third, Paul has been claiming for years now that he would magically regain the rights to those songs automatically in "a few years" although that hasn't happened yet, and I doubt it will. Fourth, if Michael Jackson were suffering from all of these deadly diseases and on his final days he surely wouldn't be out book shopping and signing autographs for fans just the other day.

Avenge, revenge, whatever    

I like how you use a "z" instead of an "s". Show's that you're unconventional, original and maybe even edgy. The only thing that could make you any cooler would be if you ended words with an "a" when it really should be "er". That would be great.

hahahaha!    

There is just something so insulting about songs that are part of Paul McCartney and his legacy with the Beatles having been bought and then 'willed' back to him by some young punk who had the money at the time. I'll never understand that.
