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.

Whenever I hear about Michael it saddens me that he couldn't bring himself to get help for his sleeping pill/substance issues. Obviously it's a common problem, but I just wish that he would have thought with clarity for his children, who are now with wolves only looking for money and stardom. Of course MJ's docs had responsibility in the matter, too, but MJ really needed to look within himself and get help.

Our whole vilification of drug addicts/dependents in this country is sickening... we need to stop vilifying, stop stigmatizing, and get people help. Stop with this AA and NA 12 step bull****, and use programs like SMART recovery instead, where it teaches and trains to empower addicts to learn how to cope with real life without drugs. If we do that, people can stop hiding their secret addictions/dependencies and get the help and recovery they need - end these substance tragedies.

God bless you for posting that beautiful article which vindicates Michael so beautifully. He knows of you kindness and goodness in doing so.

I concur with every positive sentiment expressed therein about Michael.

We await the January, 2011 trial and pray for justice for Michael, his family and all those of us who love him.

Requiscat in pace Michael.

I am shocked that things have gotten this far. This is ridiculous. I was at the studio when these questionable files were delivered. I heard these "so-called" Michael Jackson songs raw and without the distraction of the well produced music by Teddy Riley. How they constructed these songs is very sneaky and sly. many people who have worked on this project either have strong doubts and questions while others KNOW the truth yet decided to turn and look the other way with their hands out for $$$. I will NEVER look the other way. Right is Right, Truth is Truth, Facts are Facts and it will all come out!!! I tried so hard to prevent this craziness, but they wouldn't listen. I KNOW my Uncle's voice and something's seriously wrong when you have immediate FAMILY saying it's not him. Don't you have to wonder why? I have strong, undeniable points. They can't give me answers, yet continue to move forward with lies and deception. Sounding like Michael Jackson and BEING Michael Jackson are two different things.

"If you know it's a lie then you will swear it, If you give it with guilt then you will bear it, If it's taking a chance then you will dare it… you would do anything for money"
