Michael Jackson's 'Breaking News' -- The Real Deal

11/7/2010 8:07 PM PST BY Harvey Levin

Hey, it's Harvey. We usually don't write first person on TMZ, but I gotta tell you what I just heard.

Michael Jackson Breaking News song:

Someone has played me the song "Breaking News." I'm not a music expert, but I am a Michael Jackson music fan ... and it's definitely Michael Jackson. The song -- which is awesome -- is a pretty harsh look through Michael's eyes at the media. In essence, he is saying ... You've treated me shabbily and you've hoped for my demise, but I'm back!

One of the lyrics:
 "They want to see that I fall,
cause I'm Michael Jackson.
You write the words to destroy
like it's a weapon."

In another part of the song, Jackson sings:
"Everybody wanting a piece of Michael Jackson.
Reporters stalking the moves of Michael Jackson.
Just when you thought he was done,
he comes to give it again."

The song is vintage Jackson. The initial beat will remind you of "Billie Jean" and there are all sorts of MJ trademarks throughout.

When you hear it, you will not be able to suppress the image of Jackson dancing to the song.

The song was recorded at the home of music producer Eddie Cascio, when Michael Jackson was living there for four months in 2007.

As good as the song is ... it's not the first single that will be released. We're told we might be able to post a copy of  "Breaking News" on TMZ as soon as late tonight.

really?    

After his "death", TMZ has loved MJ..they stopped calling him "Jacko" and no matter what the family says against TMZ, looks like they gave Harvey access to the "Breaking News" song.
WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU EVERYONE!! OUT OF ALL THE MEDIA OUTLETS, THE ESTATE ALLOWED TMZ TO HEAR THE SONG!!

If this isn't good for the hoax I don't know what is...I mean Harvey personally commenting on what may be one of the biggest songs of MJ's career; the start of one of the greatest albums of all time.

I sooooooooooo know how MJ felt about people ``wanting him to fall/ fail!
I deal with this **** in my life as well! Too bad I don't have the $$$ he had `` b/c then `` I would tell most ppl in my life to FO and die```````` truly!! Unlike MJ``` I'm not addicted to drugs or alcohol `` So I'll be around for many years and still ``` have haters!!
