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.

Is Harvey still Dating Howard Weitzman? That would explain a lot. Harvey will say only nice things about: The Special Administrators of the Michael Jackson Estate; John G Branca, and John Maclain. Someone let me know when those guys break up. Don't you guys know that the estate doesn't own the trademark "Michael" class 009-- music, nor any of its other trademarks.How fun the future is going to be. Watch and you will see.

really?    

#70 has a good point. Sony advertises on TMZ so perhaps that is why Harvey is over the top with the MJ stuff.

The optimist would still view the relationship as something deeper, and that Harvey via the Sony relationship knows things we do not know, if you catch my drift.
