We've learned lawyers for Michael Jackson's estate went to court today and the probate judge gave permission for them to strike a deal with Sony Music for the production and distribution of a soundtrack album in connection with the "This is It" film release.

Sources say Sony and the estate have reached an agreement.

True fans knew Michael's face was ever changing and we didn't care. He was handsome at every stage of his life.
-----------------------

HAHAHAHAHAHA Michael hadn't been handsome since the late 80's! How can someone who has NO NOSE on their face be handsome??? His nose was a prosthetic, it wasn't real. And you should care, as he was constantly screwing his face up. When you no longer look human, there's a problem!
It's sad but MJ was simply a space alien looking serious drug addict. And a closet homosexual......
He went overboard in life with everything: surgery, drugs and shopping. There was no moderation for him in anything he did. And in the end, it did him in.

DN,

I've read your comment on other posts about Karen Faye. The hard thing with this is that if we don't see it then the media again will crucify Michael if fans boycott the movie. They won't print the fact that we've boycotted it but rather some stupid headline reading "The King of Flop" & how much of a failure the movie was or that he only had a waning audience or mediocre turnout. I don't want Michael's name dragged through stuff like this again.

But having said that, I understand in principal about not supporting it. If people want fans to boycott then we need to make noise and let the media know that this is our intention and why. That should happen to perserve Michaels memory and not the twisted way the media will make this out to be.

Any ideas anyone?

Here in England, we were treated to Tito Jackson as a guest on a London radio show the other day. There he was, promoting himself and some show. When asked what his favourite Michael Jackson song was..well he could have chosen so many..Man in the mirror, Billie Jean..you name it..No, dear Tito said "Anything he did with the Jacksons" At that point I turned off..Couldnt he even credit his very talented Brother with at least ONE of his classic songs?

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting:

Will Michael's M.D. flee?
L.A. district attorney's office fears Murray may leave U.S.
Comments

September 17, 2009
BY BILL ZWECKER Sun-Times Columnist

There's concern at the Los Angeles district attorney's office about the possibility Dr. Conrad Murray -- Michael Jackson's controversial personal physician, who was with him when he died -- may flee the country.

A source in the DA's office tells me Murray is considered a definite ''flight risk,'' especially now that an indictment -- or a series of indictments -- is expected to be handed down charging the doctor with culpability in the King of Pop's drug-induced death.

Reportedly, Murray is being kept under surveillance 24-7, in case there are any indications he's going to make a run for it.

It's also alleged that Murray already has quietly made inquiries about travel to Brazil -- a country without an extradition treaty with the United States.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I hope the arrest comes soon!

Kudos to you guys for your coverage on MJ, and for adding that great little pic of him in the RIP tab.

Question: what's up with Grace, the nanny? There were rumors about her over-medicating MJ back during the first trial, and rumors about her, and about Jermaine.

Thanks!
