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"

to all the mj fans... regarding the song "Breaking News" i am so sorry you have to deal with this. my Uncle loved you so much and would not want it this way. however there are songs that ARE my uncle singing on the upcoming album and I will support those 100% but I will not support "Breaking News" and a few others because it simply is not him. they tried to fool me and they tried to fool you. i told them it would never happen.

If you question the validity of a professional photo you can ask the photographer for more pictures from that photo shoot. If it is authentic the photographer will turn over different shots. Some with different poses, some even with eyes closed. I questioned the validity of the vocal's on "breaking news" and several other songs of theirs that I've heard and they told me no other takes or tracks exist. They claim my uncle was so happy with the performance he instructed them to delete all the other files. I had the honor to learn and watch my uncle record my entire life and that is NOT how he worked. No outtakes, no other tracks, no backups, no proof. roughly 10 songs they turned in… same story for all of them. I asked for the computer it was created on... they said it broke. I asked for the original hard drive... they said it was destroyed. One dubious excuse after another.

We are still waiting for confirmation that the statement yesterday by Howard Weitzman (on behalf of the estate) is real and official. There are many blatant inaccuracies and omissions which makes me think it is not. I'm waiting on a phone call or the statement to be posted on an official site (such as michaeljackson.com) before I respond.

In regards to the statement, I tried calling Howard's cell but couldn't reach him. (I wanted to hear from him directly). After calling his office, somebody confirmed that the statement did come from Howard. As I said before, there are many inaccuracies and omissions in that statement. For one, I was also in that meeting and that was not the outcome. Saying that, I don't want to go into further details and take away from the attention "Hold My Hand" truly deserves. You will hear my story because this is way too important for my Uncle's legacy. The truth will prevail.

Out of the 10 songs listed only 7 of them are Michael Jackson. Someone just asked me," is 'Keep Your Head Up' real or are we being lied to again? Sorry, but you won't like my answer…. Let's enjoy Hold My Hand.

When I listen to "Hold My Hand" so many memories come to my mind. I think about some of the most treasured qualities… loyalty, unity and love. One of his favorite moments on stage was performing "I'll Be There"…he said, "when they turn the lights on you can see the crowd swinging their arms, singing along… it's like a sea of love. It doesn't matter what country, it's the same all around the world." Please listen to the message. Hold My Hand... I will forever.

"Much Too Soon" - At a very early age my Uncle taught me to appreciate and study all types of music. I remember going to the music stores with him and he would pull cd's for me "Do you know this? (Carole King... Tapestry) have you heard of them? (Bread) oh I love this...(Jim Croce's.. I have to say I love you in a song)" we would walk down the aisles of every section... it was like homework for me. He gave me a little at a time and when I was ready for more he would give me a whole new list. "There's so many styles... study it all, don't limit yourself." - I would leave the store with a wide variety with anything from Tchikovsky's Nutcracker to Queen. When we got home or in the car we would listen to it. Some songs would weaken him and touch his heart while others would make him sing and dance!! He was always teaching me and I am so thankful for all of his lessons in both music and life. - this is what came to my mind when I first heard "Much Too Soon." I love this style of music and I can appreciate it because of you. I love you MJ

I've always admired the talent of Teddy Riley, but after hearing him lie on Oprah I am terribly disappointed. 7:43 PM Dec 6th via web

I remember when Teddy and I were at Encore listening to KYHU. We both knew it wasn't my Uncle. He stopped working on it because (and I quote) "it didn't sound enough like Michael. Michael doesn't swing like that." He also said he was only working on the Cascio records in hopes that he would eventually be given a "real Michael Jackson song." As he knows, I never agreed with that logic. I'll never forget when Teddy called me telling me, "I'm so excited, I finally got a 'Michael record.' It's called Hollywood Tonight and it's him."

Frank hurt and betrayed my Uncle years ago, so when I learned about Eddie I wasn't completely shocked. The names are different but the story's the same. People taking advantage of my Uncle and now his legacy. I wish Oprah would have asked about the ridiculous amount these FAKE songs were sold to the estate for.

Furthermore, it is people like you and MiMi who keep all the fans away. Anybody who has a sense of dignity would not be acting like a queen bee in heat. Only you and MiMi!

Why don't LMP talk about how she was an addict, wild and out of control, I maybe wrong buy why didn't Oprah ask her about her addiction and yet she had the nerve to talk about Michael, Mama always said people who live in glass houses shouldn't cast the first stone.

Michael Jackson Video "Hold My Hand" (Duet With Akon) To Premiere This Week

The world has heard the new Michael Jackson single “Hold My Hand” (Duet with Akon) and fans will soon be able to see its beauty thanks to acclaimed film director Mark Pellington. A 30-second sneak peak is available now on www.MichaelJackson.com; the premiere of the full video will take place at 12:01am EST on Thursday, December 9th. Fans can view the video on MichaelJackson.com, VEVO.com, and Youtube.com.

The “Hold My Hand” video will premiere on BET at 9:30pm on Thursday as part of a 30-minute Michael Jackson special. The video will also be aired on MTV, VH1 and FUSE.

Pellington shot “Hold My Hand” in California with a diverse array of real Michael Jackson fans as its cast. In the video, Pellington tells the story of the song through a collage of images of both Michael and Akon as well as people representing Michael’s legacy, shining a light on the aura left behind by King of Pop. As he describes, “The video is a tribute to all that Michael stands for -- life, in all its permutations...love, and its power.... A video of memory, healing and joy.”

Pellington’s clip accomplishes exactly what fans love about Michael Jackson– simple but powerful messages such as that in the song’s opening line “This life don’t last forever.”

“Hold My Hand” (Duet with Akon) is the first single from MICHAEL, which will be released December 14, 2010.

You know what aq?


If you want to respond to Cher then why did you not do it on the board Cher posted it on? But no, you have to copy & paste and bring it over here so your response to it can be seen by a larger audience.

You pulling posts from that board over to this one reminds me of how one of the cloners did the same exact thing.

-#180: aq, I see you're still STALKING....do you ACTUALLY think we're OBLIVIOUS to the demons like you who lurk there? If someone looked up the word OBSESSED, your picture would be right there!
And unlike you, I don't take my cues from satan, so NO, I don't have an issue with people who have Mental Illness, I have an issue with people like YOU who try to PROJECT their own mental instabilities on Michael or anyone else for that matter....
Michael was a GENIUS, who also happened to be a VERY sensitive man--something you OBVIOUSLY have no clue about.....
And as for him being dead, I've been aware of this since 6/25/09--did you just realize this? But unlike you and your ilk, his LEGACY will last FOREVER........
BTW: I have a pic with Michael, also.....and?? A photo does NOT a close friendship make.....
Try, try again.....
-#195: Hey Mymjj5! I'm with you. As I posted aq above, having a pic with Michael does NOT mean you're close--he wasn't even that close to his own family toward the end...and I think it was more because he was busy with PPB and trying to make his final comeback. Everything the Casios have stated in the past references the year he returned from Bahrain--2006-7 or thereabouts, and who made them an expert? Michael had to take prescription meds for his back, knee and Lupus, as you alredy know. It would be easy for someone to see him taking these meds and ASSume he was back to his 90's behavior....especially when that's what they WANT to see...Oye.
-#214: Hey Nan! Another rocking post! You wrote:
i happen to feel this is not the best music they have of his.
i feel like they are putting this out cause he is hot right now and people will scoff it up.
maybe they have better tracks that will be released later..
i know plenty of people who have pre ordered it and no idea nor do they care about the estate stuff.
they will say to me ...hey what ever happened with that doctor?
unbelievable ..but true.most people just love his music..
Posted at 11:31 AM on Dec 8, 2010 by nan
And this is EXACTLY why I know the CD will be a top seller, because Sony and the Estate have most people totally in the dark as to what is REALLY going on behind the scenes....TYPICAL.....
And you are DEFINITELY my HERO tonight, you ALSO wrote:
they seem to be commenting on others impressions because they dont seem to have much first hand knowledge so i think it does mj a huge disservice addressing it as if it is a fact instead of just a possible conclusion by others..
i wish all would keep their opinions to themselves regarding that stuff until after the trial.
all these people who have said this stuff seem to pull it out if the air.
k and lmp were talking about the early 90s i believe..
i dont see what any of that stuff has to do with a doctor injecting a person with a lethal dose..
drug use or non use is not the issue. the issue is this doctor carelessness and lack of regard for human life..
people get led down the wrong path all the time with mj. its easy to do because so many people are flapping their gums about him for 15 minutes of a fame.
have to take off..
have a good day !

If you are going to quote someone then at least quote them correctly.
