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.

This CD cover is better. No butterfly or hand over the chest (very masonic). The crown and naked demonic fairies are gone too. MJ hated Neverland and got rid of all the animals and rides. MJ did not worship the sun nor the sun god ra. the goons were a part of thriller but look horrible behind such a gorgeous image of MJ.
therefore there's still a lot of imagery that speaks volumes against what MJ stood for. Greedy Sony is still trying to forge ahead with their agenda of using MJ for their NWO purposes.
MJ could not stand the Sony company anymore. MJ's number was 777. Sony did not respect MJ in life and they are using him for their own freemasonry agenda in death.
Michael was right. Sony is a racist sick devilish organization. Puke on Sony for using, hurting and killing Michael Jackson!!!

btw: if they are going to use a crown on MJ they should use one from his personal collection other wise just drop it.

Even if it is all "marketing" it is a change because it is marketing in a positive light instead of marketing bad news about MJ. Unfortunately MJ had to "die" for the world to realize how much we love and miss him.
