Michael Jackson's New Album -- Now Prince Free

11/7/2010 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Prince has always been a strange and mysterious man -- but now he's found a way to magically appear and then disappear from the cover of the new Michael Jackson album.

The cover to the album, "Michael," is a copy of a painting from 2009. If you look closely  ... you can see Prince's unique symbol inside of a circle (upper right). But now, when you go to Sony's website to buy the CD, Prince's glyph has magically disappeared.

The website DrFunkenberry.com,  which first took note of the symbol, claims to have spoken to Prince's people, who told them, "No permission was granted. Sony Entertainment has removed the symbol."

This is what it sounds like ... when Prince's lawyers send you a takedown notice.

The did they purposely leave off the final image of MJ from the cover. You know the pasty skin white woman looking MJ.

I hate the masonic/illuminati portrayal of MJ on this CD cover. MJ did not promote 666 and was no longer a puppet for the NWO........

After he changed his life and accepted Christ MJ was strictly 777. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein."--Mark 10:15 (Christ's words not Michael's. MJ only repeated and promoted the verse).

Unless you become childlike you shall not enter in!!!

I asked my daughter. She believes its a satanic symbol or an illuminati symbol for the NWO. If this is true, this CD cover is in direct contrast to everything Michael Jackson belived in during the latter years of his life.
Sony/mottola is devilish according to Michael in 2001. Looks like Sony is going to push their NWO agenda using MJ without his consent of course to promote their BS NWO!!! Now this would make MJ turn over in his grave (IMO)

Prince has never wanted to be like MJ whom ever thought to say that. Prince is a musical genius, a real musician and artist. MJ was an all around entertainer, so don't try and make it seem like Prince isn't just as important. Prince would never try and still MJ's shine. He could care less about MJ's fame and over-exposure, which is why he hasn't spoken to the press about MJ anyways. Prince is a GREAT ARTIST (hands down), so is MJ, they can't be compared, they'll never be another MJ and they'll never be another Prince. So stop trying to disrespect PRINCE, because he has millions of fans who have and will continue to support his music and tours!!! Which is why he's still relevant and still one of the most fascinating people in the business. Just because ur radio or ur mtv doesn't spin PRINCE music/videos, doesn't mean he isn't important. He doesn't want to be apart of this era of disposable music.

that was a great post. all of my life, i never thought about Prince and MJ competing with each other. it's silly. They were both successful and loved for their own unique style and music. No feud or jealousy among them.
I think prince has not said anything about MJ since his passing because MJ denounced his JW upbringing. Prince is still hanging in there.

Wacko Jacko ws overrated. His album 'thriller' was the result of many talents. Jacko did not play any instruments of note on it. He used the best session players. He only wrote 4 songs for it and he needed Quincy Jones to produce it. His new album 'Michael' is a collection of incomplete songs which have used the best musicians, arrangers, producers to make it sound half decent. All you have is Wackos voice. And that might be fake. All they have done is try to copy what Wacko might have wanted. It will not be original.

I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FRIGGIN SICK SICK SIIIIICK of hearing about MJ!!! ENOUGH alreay! WHO THE HECK CARES!!!!????? I am so tired of hearing about this whackjob that I want to scream! I will NEVER understand why this man was ever so popular. Yes, his music was cool (in the 80's!!!), but ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! I just wish this Michael Jackson mania would GO AWAY ALREADY! But sadly, alas, it never will...especially now that he's dead! It's just like Elvis. I am seriously going to STOP reading TMZ because of all this garbage. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH HARVEY!!! Let it rest! UGH!
