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.

Reta-MJ didn't buy any kids,if you don't like him or his family then stop reading stories about them.
@george clooney-Mike wasn't a pervert,the media is.

Harvey,you are included in the "media" Mike hated! You/tmz have never shown him,his kids,nor his family any respect. You/tmz have lied and spread rumors about them.

I do not know if I'll have the courage to listen to these songs, as I have not had the courage to see the movie "This Is It." I accepted the fact that he died in the flesh, but I still can not accept how and why this occurred, as well as millions of people worldwide!

There are tons of people who can impersonate people and you'd never know it wasn't the actual person. Is it possible that someone sounds so much like Michael Jackson that no one would be able to tell the difference? Yup. I guess we'll never know. Hope away, folks. By the way, he's singer and a dancer. Not the second coming.

@Dee: aaaahm... millions around the world do care! ;)
So if you don't, turn around and don't pay attention! I don't care about so many things as well, and have to live with it
