Conrad Murray Trial

Michael Jackson Video

Proves Singer Was a Wreck

9/20/2011 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray want to show jurors just how worn down Michael Jackson was in the weeks leading up to his death -- and their proof ... MJ's blowout announcement for the "This Is It" concerts.

MJ held the news conference on March 5, 2009 ... announcing he would perform his last 10 concerts ever in London that summer ... insisting, "When I say this is it, it really means this is it."

Murray's defense team filed legal docs, claiming the video shows Jackson was rapidly deteriorating, both mentally and physically, when he made the announcement.  They're asking the judge for permission to show jurors the video, to prove Michael was literally on his last leg ... several months before his death.

Murray's lawyers also think the video is relevant because Jackson was "adamant" about performing only 10 shows, and that subsequently adding 40 dates to the schedule may have been the straw that broke the camel's back.

As for this video....I don't know who this man is but it's not MJ and if it is, he's higher than a kite. He even slurs his words in one part. MJ was never ever know to be arrogant and this person is...I think the idea of doing 50 shows was the breaking point for him. AEG needs to be sued for manipulating him and contributing to his early demise. Everyone took advantage of MJ all his life and sadly people still are in death. RIP MJ

The world is a safer place with the child molester dead. Dr Murray should be getting an award, not put on trial.

Look, he was an addict and he died because of it. So many celebs die of prescription drugs, and no one goes after the doctor that was foolishly supplying them. Why now?

Get the F*** out of here. LOL. They kidding. Where in this video does he say 10 concerts? He don't look like he on his last leg to me. He is smiling & laughing & seems to be enjoying the attention from his fans. Murray, really?

Dr. Murray's team is grasping at straws and seem to be getting more desperate by the minute. It doesn't matter if MJ was dancing in his mansion in a tutu, and sucking his thumb at night. The bottom line is Dr. Murray was the one who was medically in charge of MJ, and Dr. Murray was the only Dr. in the house at the time of his death. MJ might not have known the dangers of using Propofol as a sleep aid, but Dr. Murray should have. The minute MJ said, I'll pay you this amount to do this for me, he should have turned around and walked out the door. It doesn't matter how many other Dr's aided MJ with prescription meds, what killed him was acute Propofol poisoning. It's unfortunate what some Dr's are willing to do for the right price. Yes, I have my opinion on this just like everyone else. It doesn't make my opinion right or wrong. It is just an opinion. I say let all the facts come out in the court and let the jury decide who has blood on their hands.

I have watched Michael's interviews since day 1.
(about 40 yrs of interviews)
It is quite apparent here that he is under some sort
of substance influence.
a true fan can tell and will tell it.
But Con Rat Murderer still does not have any defense,
because if you do the math, this is around the same
time Con Rat was giving him Propfol and other drugs.

Even if this was true, you still don't pump somebody up with narcotics.

Michael was a great Artist, one of a kind. He enjoyed making beautiful music and he loved his FANS. SINCE HIS CHILDHOOD, HE GAVE IT ALL to please his Audiance.Really, I never noticed him having a real private life.Never I saw him flip out or lasch out or being mean to anyone. He was a kind loving soul.All he did was work work and work.It takes its toll on a persons body did anyone of you had to take on 2 Jobs to earn a living? He looked tired because of the Time diffrences between USA and Europe (They are 5+ Hours ahead )When I travel to europe I am done from the long Flight and tean to top it off, time diffrence. It takes a few days to be ok.Anyone who Flighs a lot will know that and no you cant always sleep on an Airplane.Poor Michael.You are in the Air on a Bussness trip worring about your child (children at home )and you miss them some times cry and feel guilty for leaving them.It all makes you stressed. Who knows what Bussiness talk or Telephone confrences he had to deal with and the Newspapers and Interviews,Paparazis,and us fans ??Then who knows what his Manager told him.Stress Stress Stress that all can make you be different.Anyone who worked stressful Jobs one time or another can sing a song about that.How sick you can get before you go to work and all worked up and worried.But the truth in all is life is too short to deal with that.And you can never please everyone I learned that,and they lay you off, it doesn't matter if you were once the best from the rest.Michael was a little stressed and really no wonder why.

He seemed fine to me when he did this announcement. It was a typical MJ "speech", he was himself... as always not very comfortable when he had to talk.

He was very thin, though... poor guy.
