Sony to Katherine Jackson: You're Wrong About MJ

11/4/2010 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sony Music isn't buying the claim of Katherine Jackson and two of Michael Jackson's kids ... that some of the tracks on a soon-to-be-released MJ album are fake -- because one of the tracks in question is about to be released on michaeljackson.com on Monday.

1104_mj_cover_BN_01

The song -- "Breaking News" -- was recorded in 2007, at the New Jersey home of Eddie Cascio.  Jackson and his kids lived in the house for 4 months while Michael was recording.  We're told Prince, Paris and Katherine now believe the Cascio tracks are fake -- not Michael's voice.

But Sony has done a bunch of voice authentications, and the record company is convinced it's the real deal.  So a teaser will be released tomorrow, and the full song will be on the MJ website for one week, beginning Monday.

We're told 3 tracks recorded at the Cascio house will be included on the full album, which will be released on December 14.

Oprah Winfrey "Demands Money To Appear On Michael Jackson Album Cover"


"OPRAH Winfrey refused to appear on the cover of Michael Jackson’s new album of never-released material — because she wasn’t getting paid!

According to American tabloid the National Enquirer, billionaire Oprah — who has previously interviewed tragic Michael, sister Janet Jackson and recently recorded a special with mom Katherine Jackson and children Prince, Paris and Blanket — was asked to appear in a group photo on the cover of the new record.

Oprah apparently agreed — but then decided she wouldn’t pose after Sony balked at her demands to be financially rewarded.

“Oprah’s always positioned herself as a confidante to the Jackson family, coming off like she cares deeply about Michael and the welfare of his children,” a source said. “So when Sony executives asked her to appear in a group photo on the cover of a soon-to-be-released album featuring songs Michael’s fans have never heard before, you’d think she’d jump at the chance to promote a project that will ultimately benefit his fatherless children, but…WRONG!

“Oprah said she’d appear on the cover — along with dozens of other people who were influential in Michael’s life — ONLY if she received financial participation in the album!”

Sony is totally right. And Katherine should learn to live with it!! She cannot do anything to hinder the release of the album! Not even the manipulation of her grandchildren can serve, she should be ashamed only, but, evidently, for her it's not a problem!!! SHAME ON YOU!!

they have been so many versions. some media said it was the 3T who contested the voice. another said it is Prince and Paris. How do you know who questionned the authenticity off the track?please, leave this family alone. the more the haters tried to trash them, the more they will succeed. By the way, most of the monney will go to MJ's estate. the Cascio will get a small percentage. so I don't know why TMZ is so happy about Katherine being wrong?She has the right to protect his name.

mimi...he didnt perform it ,he said he had been working on it and it would be out soon.
i had heard the cow talking about it to her special friend gail and she said her producers surprised her with this although i dont know y she wouldnt wonder y someone was filming in her office.

he gave the cow flowers ,.. cornmeal might have been appreciated more,,lol
then they went to the restaurant next door to put on the old feedbag..:)
she asked blah questions etc, because she had told gail he was very shy and just kept asking her how she was doing..
she then asked who handled fame best of all of them or something like that and he said michael always handled it the best ,something like that ..
i thought the fact that she left that pretty much alone was interesting..
he seems like a very nice man ..
and she seems like big ornery cow..that was my take on it..

Haven't we learned yet how fast these false stories circulate and very adeptly get around stating facts? "Sources" or "insiders" claim that someone in the family has protested that its not MJ's voice. Really? The media has been spinning MJ life story for 25 years...and yet you all are ready to believe the first story that comes out about his new music. Please remember who is writing these stories!!

I'm sure Katherine, Paris & Prince knows Michael's voice better than any machine or authenticator, so if they're saying it's fake, it's fake!
