Michael Jackson Justice: We Know What's Going On . . . Don't We?

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

We Know What's Going On . . . Don't We?


November 4, 2010 – “We Know What’s Going On”


Patience . . . Spelled “B-R-E-A-T-H-E”

First I want to thank Jackie Jackson for the inspiration for the theme of this blog update because this is going to be the focus for the next few updates.

I opened this word document to type my blog and before I began, I shook my head and looked down.  This move has been one delay after another, after another, after another.  Welcome to life in the south, where if you are a high strung individual, change or be perpetually frustrated.

I have learned something new about myself during this move.  I am a high strung individual.   All kinds of excuses and explanations can be constructed on my behalf, but ultimately I am responsible for my own blood pressure.

But we are here, and although our work is LONG from being done, there were many hidden blessings in the delays we’ve endured.  This is God’s way of telling us to slow down, pace ourselves because all prayers will be answered and all tasks will eventually get done. 

I have missed a lot but I have also been getting updates via phone from various people.  Where we moved to, we had spotty cell phone coverage at best, and for some strange reason our order for phone and internet hook up was deleted, so we were two days late getting hooked up.  The blessing?  We paid less than 50% of what the normal hookup charge was because of their error.   This was God’s way of saying, “You’ve got to face the clouds to find the silver lining”.

Things are happening and it is and will be important to keep your eyes and ears crisp.  Listen to what is being said (and what is NOT being said) in the upcoming interviews.

I missed the Oprah interview with Jackie Jackson (or the date . . . depending on how you look at it)  Apparently Oprah once wanted to marry Jackie Jackson.  Of course the way she treated Michael on her show probably put any possibility of that on the back burner.  Tip for Oprah, since she probably doesn’t do her own research;  Jackie Jackson is Michael Jackson’s brother.  Let me repeat  - Jackie Jackson and Michael Jackson are immediate family to each other. 

Of the news that stampeded over me as I opened the doors of the internet once again, was the Sony Album titled “Michael”, the looming interview with Oprah and Katherine Jackson (with children present during part of it), The Cirque du Soleil with Michael’s music, and Jackie’s new single “We Know What’s Going On”.

Jackie also has a web site where you can get more information on what he is up to here:


Jackie Jackson


Story on Jackie’s single with words from Michael included in the lyrics:


The lyrics to the song, as much as this person could get from the single released on ITunes:

We Know What's Going On
by Jackie Jackson

Have you heard the news
The choice is up to you
It’s time for us to come together now

What are you waiting for?
We can’t take no more
We got to chase the dream
??

We can make that change
I know you feel the same
Call all your friends and shout it out

We’re going to take the lead
We’re going to make history
We’re not goin’ hesitate (?)\
We’re going to celebrate

Everybody
See, you know what’s going on
But together, we’re too strong
And the sun is going to shine
If we open up your eyes (yeah, yeah)

Gotta listen to your heart
We can make a brand new start
Cause today, we’re going to fly
Even higher than the sky (yeah, yeah)

Cause we know what’s going on
Now we understand
Let’s go hand in hand
I know we can build a brand new day

What are you waiting for?
We can’t take no more
We’re going to chase the dream
??

To build on your own
But you’re not alone
Together, let’s unite
And fight away

We’re going to take the lead
We’re going to make history
We’re not goin’ hesitate (?)
We’re going to celebrate

Everybody
See, you know what’s going on
But together, we’re too strong
And the sun is going to shine
If we open up your eyes (yeah, yeah)
Gotta listen to your heart
We can make a brand new start
Cause today, we’re going to fly
Even higher than the sky (yeah, yeah)
Cause we know what’s going on

Oh!
Everybody
Everybody
Everybody
Have you heard the news
Everybody
Everybody
Everybody
Have you hear the news

Everybody

MJ’s voice from a 2002 speech: “Today, we can make a change in the world. Together, we can help stop racism. Together, we can help stop prejudice. We can help the world live without fear. “

Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
“It is our only hope and without hope, we are lost.”
See, you know what’s going on
But together, we’re too strong
And the sun is going to shine
If we open up your eyes (yeah, yeah)

Gotta listen to your heart
We can make a brand new start
Cause today, we’re going to fly
Even higher than the sky (yeah, yeah)
Cause we know what’s going on

Come on! Cause we know what’s going on
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

Gotta listen to your heart
We can make a brand new start
Cause today, we’re going to fly
Even higher than the sky (yeah, yeah)

Cause we know what’s going on
Cause we know what’s going on
“Together we can make a change in the world…”
Cause we know what’s going on
“..without fear…”
I know you feel the same
Cause we know what’s going on

“Funny that we didn't hear anything about this before today. The first solo single for Jackie in 21 years...featuring Michael...and no one knows about it until the day it's released on iTunes. And of course the title. We definitely know something's going on!”

This for me, is another prayer answered.  Those on Twitter, squawking about the family profiting from Michael’s death, those sending hate-twits to the brothers, berating Randy or Jermaine, calling them names, talking down to Miss Katherine over the Oprah interview, please realize that this song is a message.  As much as I would like all the answers up front, we can’t have them.  Not if they are going to do what they need to do and not if justice is going to be served.

There is Justice at Work, Behind the Scenes, For Michael 
 

I want to point you back to a couple of blog updates I did back in the spring and summer:

and part 2
and also this one:

We are going to start putting some of this information together.   Seeing the lyrics (or what is close to the lyrics) of Jackie’s song reminded me of some of the lesser know songs of Michael’s and how much we just did not get what he was saying when some of us first heard his albums when they came out.  (I didn’t hear them at all.  Was not fan material and never paid attention to his music then).

Posted by MJonMind –

looking4truth, thanks for writing down the lyrics. And yes Jackie does look very good in this pic. According to Wiki, Jackie is currently single, but Oprah has a partner. I suppose Oprah can do what she pleases.

Just a few things more I noticed in the song:
"We’re going to chase the dream" relates to TII's trailer--
"his dreams inspired the world, but there was still one dream he wanted to share with everyone"

"Cause today, we’re going to fly
Even higher than the sky (yeah, yeah)" relates to MJ Air and the blimp, the the set list saying "leaving on a jet" (don't know what that all means though)

"And the sun is going to shine
If we open up your eyes (yeah, yeah)relates to Cry and the words
"Will the sun ever shine in the blind man's eyes, when he cries"

"Shout" relates to MJ's song "Shout"

The songs that were haunting me on the drive down here:

Cry
Superfly Sister
Speechless (cried again, driving in the dark.  Got aggravated digging for tissues)
Will You Be There (cried, even listening twice in a row)
Keep the Faith
You Are Not Alone (cried)
Morphine (Michael, I hate this song. Wish you didn’t have to write it)
Is it Scary

I was drawn to Michael’s later songs as I drove down and some of it put me in a very dark mood.  This is not good.  Especially when you are the only one with the GPS in your vehicle, your husband is following, GPS is wrong (because you can’t POSSIBLY be) and you end up barking at your husband when you have to pull into a parking lot in a town you’ve never been in before, like it was HIS fault! (I did say was sorry later, then blamed it on Michael . . . just kidding).

I do want to begin digging back into Sony, Branca, Mottola, Bandier and that lot.  I don’t believe all of Michael’s songs were about Tom Sneddon.  I want to make the connection between Michael’s later songs and what he was discovering was going on around him and I believe he suspected as early as the early 1990’s, even before Lisa Marie. 

This is why Jackie’s song bears some paying attention to.  After hearing the song and seeing the lyrics, I believe  there is much more Michael’s family is not only aware of but controlling.  The interviews with Oprah, the Lisa Marie interview and I have to tell you, I am open to the possibility that Oprah may not be the pariah we thought she was.  We won’t know until we see the interview.  Please watch with eyes and ears crisp.  Pray for discernment because we will need it.

About Jackie’s song and the bolded lyrics:  What song is playing at the end of “This is It”?  (Man in the Mirror) and at the end, “Make that Change”.  Cry is a song that reverberates with me because of Michael’s plea for some help in “making that change.”  How many times have you just looked up and asked God for that same assistance?  “I can’t do it by myself . . .”, “It’s gonna take somebody’s help . . .”, “I’m gonna need some kind of sign . . .”

I can’t Do This Alone

In a prayer to God for help, those are some of the loneliest requests you can ever make.  God does not give you more than you can handle, but he does expect you to need him and recognize that need.  He does NOT expect you to do it without his help.  Michael was hard-wired on this.

As Michael’s 2005 trial was approaching, I believe Michael did get the help he needed.  He got it from family, from his true friends and from some people who finally believed him.

A Song close to my heart, with the same message:

Brandon Heath – I love this guy


Dedicated to Michael – A good explanation of how I feel about the past year plus:


And this one (following links and singing at the top of my lungs . . . poor hubby) I dare you to listen to this without joining in.  You will be compelled.  This is a beautiful song.

And last but not least (I hope you will listen to these), a month ago last year, THIS is how I felt when lay in my bed in prayer, asking God to help me understand the draw to Michael.  This is EXACTLY it .

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06AgY5Xoavw&feature=channel   And now that I’ve managed to accomplish another blog typed through tears, I will close.  God bless you, everyone reading.

Michael, we will never forget your pain, nor abandon your fight.

  1. Question: What is your opinion on the new SONY album "Michael" where Katherine says that Michael's voice was faked on at least 7 of the tracks?

  2. I agree with your synopsis and explanation of the lyrics to Jackie's newest (and long overdue) song. They ALL know "What's Going On", and they have for a VERY long time. It was (and still is) their worst possible nightmare, and even worse, they were powerless in stopping it. But, like Michael... Jackie has found a way to work some similar word magic by telling people what he thinks, and so forth, and he's using his music as a way to speak to the fans wise enough to truly listen. It's obviously a little "magic trick" he picked up from his baby brother. ;)

  3. Question: What is your opinion on the new SONY album "Michael" where Katherine says that Michael's voice was faked on at least 7 of the tracks?

    My answer: I think it's all hype. PHONEY uh... uhm... I mean $ony supposedly brought in voice authenticators to verify it was MJ. I hate to say this but I believe $ony on this one. Why? There is NO WAY that they would have bought these recordings for an unprecedented $250,000 only to be stiffed with fakes. That's point one.

    Point two: This is where all of the fan bashing and hoopla surrounding the entire "boycott $ony" crap is actually going to pay off and in spades to $ony. Why? They are using the whole "is it really Michael?" as a sales gimmick targeted DIRECTLY at the boycotters in the sense that they are turning the proverbial tables on them. Sorry, payback's a _itch as they're all thinking and saying. Especially since many of the boycotters and others have been "feeding" paparazzi with their public temper tantrums and varied antics. This in turn has played directly into the hands of the $ony advertising department, and it has given them an effective tool to use against the boycotters in order to sell "Michael" come December 14th. Anotherwords? If there is one VERY important lesson that we as MJ fans should have long learned from our beloved is this: CONTROVERSY sells.

    I'm now getting off my soapbox.

  4. I haven't heard the tracks or any tracks for that so how would I know. My understanding is that Jackie was working on the new album and that is why he was or still is on the estate's payroll.. I am just having a problem with Prince and Paris saying it is not their dad's voice if this is true. My reasoning is; they were almost 4 years younger than they are now. I read Prince said he was upstairs. Upstairs from where?? Wouldn't Michael be in a recording studio? Was there a studio at the home? I am just not able to put all of this together yet. Katherine is being manipulated by those around her, or is she? What I have observed, read and concluded, she is capable of putting her own projects together, some scheming, and not listening to her advisors at all times. I can not imagine another 'Hoax' theory, now with the release of he new album, that it isn't MJ. Maybe Samantha DeGosson knows, as she was such a follower! No, that was facetious.. sorry.. Of course this has given Taaj another platform to jump into. Seriously, I, as the general public have No idea what went into putting this new release out. I would very well doubt it would be a sham.. Michael left to much behind and there is NO reason to not use his own recordings. $ony and the estate can't be that naive.. Any Opinions? The estate is only going to continue to grown with the anticipated release of MJ's music in the future, his recordings were his gold mine for his children, that is why I just don't believe any of the gossip. I could be wrong, but I don't think on this.

  5. CORRECTION: Where I state: "There is NO WAY that they would have bought these recordings for an unprecedented $250,000 only to be stiffed with fakes. That's point one." It should read: $250,000,000. Sorry.

  6. One more...

    Point three: Remember that Jackie and Marlon Jackson assisted with this "new" release in some fashion. They would've definitely long since screamed "FRAUD!" if they ever seriously doubted Michael's voice on ANY of these tracks.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I have to say, that the family would do anything to ruined the new sales of the new album 'Michael'. They're not profiting from it so of course they will say it's not Michael. The estate and Mike's three kids are the only one's who makes a profit from it. They did the same thing with the This is It film claiming it was doubles, when in fact it was Michael.

    I lost a lot of faith with this family to be honest. Sorry to sound harsh. I think as soon as MJ fans hear the songs they will know if it's him or not like second nature.

    Nice to see you back Bonnie :)

  8. One more tidbit for thought, as I had recently included in my blog... IF they are indeed fakes (which I truly doubt), then John Branca and the MJ Estate had better stick their heads between their legs and kiss their sweet patooties gooooodbye!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Bonnie - if Katherine said Michael's voice is faked I think it might be easy to verify by involving his voice couches he had for many years. They will definitely know more to identify his voice than any fans.

    I remember one song I found on youtube(I forgot the name) that sounds just like Michael to me until someone says it's not. I believe Sony will do anything to fake his voice since they are about to make money. But his mom should contest to be verified by those who worked with him as his voice couches.

  10. Lady, yes, music is a powerful communication tool and Michael was very in tune with that. Although most of his fans may have taken a while to catch on to the fact that he was saying something important, not just trying to make a catchy song. The very fact that Jackie hasn't released anything in decades is very meaningful and clearly not simply a tool to make some cash. That's too obvious and I don't think Jackie is that shallow. Like you said, Lady, he is using a "magic trick" from his baby brother...:-) Hopefully most of the fans get it and don't accuse him of doing this for profit. (If I'm interpreting this correctly.)

    I am very intrigued by your statement and despite my difficulty with Oprah, I will keep an open mind about this.

    Also, I was thinking about the MJ-Air reference. I don't know what the blimp is all about but could the MJ-Air reference have anything to do with TII? At the end of each TII concert, Michael was supposed to leave the stage through a door atop a ladder in the video screen. The real door lines up with a virtual door on a jet airliner on the video screen. Once the door closes, the animation rolls showing the air craft taxiing and taking off, with Michael "aboard," so to speak, his "virtual" jet. In the video, if I remember correctly, they state that this was a convienent tool to distract the audience so Michael could leave the theatre w/o the audience realizing it.

    I'm curious to know what you've been thinking since you wrote this post.

  11. First, I could totally see Cascio and Michael planning a "snookered" on Sony. Why would Cascio give these up to Sony so easily? Makes no sense does it? The possibility exists however, I also believe that this could be rumors put out by Michael's side, to keep Sony from earning on this video. It's possible.

    Something else I posted to someone in a message and I want to state here in regard to some of the renegade video clips of the pieces of the interview with Katherine Jackson and Oprah:

    these pieces of this interview are taken out of context so please don't get upset about them. This interview is planned. No way Katherine would be allowed to be interviewed unless it was planned. The drugs issue is probably true. Katherine heard more about her son in the press then Michael wanted her to hear and that included the rumors about drugs. Katherine probably believed them because he did go through rehab for pain med dependency in 1993. He went WILLINGLY at the request of Liz Taylor.

    The rest is P-R-E-S-S! Remember . . . control the emotions and look at this and the source. Stories spinning already and the doggone interview has not even aired!

    >>>>>>>>>Yes, the Cascio's put a recording studio in their home for when Michael would visit. This is where they recorded these songs in 2007 when Michael spent some time there. It's important to remember that Michael did A LOT OF WORK between 2006 and 2008. Not just with Cascio. I don't think Michael did much "playing" during his travels abroad. Katherine is not a dumb woman. Neither are those around her. Try to have some faith that this family knows what is going on (not facetious) :o)

    That is pretty harsh. Why? The children are getting NOTHING of this at the moment. Branca/McClain and Sony are the only ones profiting off of anything going through the estate right now. Michael's family have taken a big beating in the press and from half of the fan base thanks to other Twitter-profiteers and their TINI-DEGOSSON connection.

    Try to take a step back and look at the whole picture. Look at the timing of everything. There is a battle going on and Michael's family needs the help and support of his fans. Without it Sony wins.

  15. Bonnie, I could have read your mind tonight. This blog was everything I expected it to be, and more! My dear friend, I was riveted to your commentary, because...I get it, do you hear me? I GET IT! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, for allowing Michael's faith to shine through you.

    The inspirational songs you posted for us were incredible, and the only way to listen to the lyrics is with an open heart. Our connection to Michael is so clear, and when words fail to describe it, we can trust our heart to simply "live" it. Bonnie, Michael was the "chosen one!" That pensive little 8-year old sitting backstage at the Apollo Theater had already been touched by divinity. As we live and breathe, God lived inside this angel. And He could not have chosen a more loving and beautiful "home" than Michael to carry his message to the world. More than twenty five years ago, Michael humbly referred to himself as simply the "tube" through which God channeled his creative energy and guided his purpose in life. Michael's pure and innocent heart never ceases to touch my soul, and my love for this beautiful human being grows stronger with each day.

    Brandon Heath's "Give Me Your Eyes" was so moving, and while I know he was asking to see humanity through God's eyes, one can't help thinking of Michael, who saw everything through God's eyes. His burden was great because he felt the pain and suffering of others, especially children. So much so that ignoring it was not an option for him - and knowing he couldn't help them all, unbearable. For one man, Michael single handedly did more to heal the world during his lifetime than anyone before or after him can ever hope to achieve.

    As you mentioned above, I also think it's best to reserve judgment of Oprah for the moment until we see the interview with Katherine, even though I'm still sharpening the tip of that boot! But I didn't like when she confronted Joe about being at the Encino home, as if he had no rights. Like it or not, Oprah, this is HIS family and Katherine is his wife. However, the fact that so many of us are obviously angered by the few segments we've seen so far begs the question:

    Could there be something else going on here that we don't know or see that Oprah is aware of, that the Jackson family is aware of...and in TOTAL CONTROL of?

    We really need to wait and see, especially regarding Prince, Paris and Blanket. Knowing how protective Michael was and how much they are loved by the entire family, I just don't see them being subjected to a situation that would upset them or make them vulnerable to the media. I think we need to practice a little faith here and trust that Michael is "watching" over his three angels. Oprah, this is your last chance to redeem yourself. You better not let Michael down!

    Thank you, Bonnie...for one of your best blogs to date. Love you so much! :-)

    >>>>>>>>His vocal coaches would probably be able to tell. I think if Sony suspected that it was not Micheal's voice, they would release the album anyway with explanations that they tested the vocals with some device to save face and (gasp!) lookey! That sounds almost exactly like what was said in the press!

  18. Spotlight - Wow, what a comment! I admit it. I confess. Michael's songs are NOT the only ones that make me cry. Brandon Heath, Casting Crowns, Sidewalk Prophets, Chris Tomlin can do me in also.

    Michael was never shy about giving credit where credit was due. His humility before God was an example to follow. I want to post something that Michael would particularly appreciate as I can see this as him.

    This is actually every child who lets God work through them.

  19. @ Bonnie...

    >>>>>Do you believe that Cascio and Michael could have planned an "imposter" on the recordings?

    Nope. My gut hunch says "No." It just wasn't in Michael's nature to be that devious, at least that we know of anyway. Personally, what I think about Michael's recordings that had been vaulted if you will, just think of "This Is It" and how Paul Anka threatened to sue the pants off of $ony and the Estate for Copyright violation because of that song! Now...THAT sort of thing would be soooo Michael!!! How many OTHER previously unreleased songs could be like that??? Hmm... (insert a wicked tongue in cheek grin)

    I know... the thought of Branca and company having to do that really DOES amuse me with delightful wickedness too! I'd love to be a spider on the wall somewhere if and when that would ever happen. Worse, I even heard a faint little "Hee-hee!" from the ethers of the other end of existence as I typed it out. Muahahaha...

  21. Well I've read everybody's comments here on your blog Bonnie and as always it's a vigorous and wide discussion of all issues raised.

    I just don't know what to make of Jackie's new release after so long. I saw some episodes of him and the brothers on their reality show which I wasn't very impressed with. Jermaine seemed to dominate the others as always.

    I think I'm going to sit on the fence about the new album and Winfrey's interview. I'm trying hard to keep an open mind. Most of all, I shall wait to see Winfrey's interview but I really am not happy that the children have been dragged into it to be honest. Michael went to great lengths not to expose the children to the media and the paparrazzi. I truly doubt that he would be happy to see this happening and I wish that his desires and wishes were being respected. I really wonder if Winfrey would have been that keen on interviewing Katherine without the children. Realise that sounds cynical but I can't help myself.

    Wow!!!!! Absolutely speechless!! What incredible talent and insight from someone so young!! Thank you for sharing that Bonnie!!

    An interesting observation I'd like to make that is VERY, VERY off topic is how this girl invisions Jesus. No one knows what Jesus looked like of course. This truly brilliant young girl paints Jesus using a very traditional image of him; a northern European white male. I'm sure this image is driven by traditional artwork she has seen in books combined with her own brilliant imagination. Certainly Jesus was not a northern European white male, but since we don't know what he looked like, he could represent any race since the Galilee region of his day was essentially the cross roads of the world. As she gets older, it would be fascinating to see how her perceptions of his physical image evolves. Please know that my observation is not meant to diminish her amazing talent and insights, which are very mature for her age.

    As Bonnie said, she is definitely a "Michael" of paintings!!! Michael as a child was universally concidered a prodigy concerning his talent and maturity of presentation. God worked through Michael, but I also remind myself that God works through ALL of us. He doesn't give each of us the same gifts, but He does give us the same opportunity to get to know Him and allow Him to work through each of us using the talents He gave us, no matter how humble (me) or profound (Michael & this young girl) those "talents" may be.

    Thanks again Bonnie!

    Peace and love to all!!

    SandyK - I know what you say about the northern European Jesus. One of the dreams I had when I was a teenager (I had two where I actually saw Jesus's face) and he had brown hair and blue eyes in the one dream but his eyes were incredibly deep. I remember when he faded his eyes were the last to go and you just fell into them. Nothing else existed. There was a lot of meaning in the focus on his eyes in the dream which I will go into when I have more time. It was a looooooong dream, at least in telling because of the detail. I want to post that one of these days but I will have to clean up the writing.

    One thing I will make note of in that particular dream, Jesus's eyes were PEACEFUL. So much so that his eyes had almost a feminine look to them. They gave you a sense of being nurtured.

  24. Next installment of "just for fun"...:-)

    Some wonderful "new" images of Michael have become available and have been included as part of another blog. It's a very different photoshoot than the Arno Bani pic's. The Bani pic's were aweful except for the Blue Eye image. The "new" images are from a different photographer and shot in the early 2000's for some Invincible photoshoots. The classy black and white images feature a mature Michael rocking long straight-ish hair and dancing around a pole....sounds risque but I assure you it's not!

    Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' about!!!

    Enjoy!

  26. SandyK - You know what, looking at these photos, he does not look happy . . . at ALL. Look at his face/eyes in these photos.

    These are beautiful pictures of him, but something doesn't sit right with me about these and it's not just the pole thing. Does anyone else notice that in these pictures?

    YES! That's exactly what I was feeling when I looked at those incredible images, while crying non stop! That little girl was so perceptive, to explain her painting as, "God was explaining himself to me." Just as God explained himself through Michael. I'm speechless.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Bonnie and SandyK, I'm pretty sure these pix were from a photoshoot for the Invincible album. The album jacket I have has photos nearly identical to these (minus the pole and with Michael in a different jacket), but with the same expression as in those SandyK posted. "Invincible" wasn't a happy time for Michael, some songs reflected his mature approach and reaction to what was going on around him, and the pix appear to depict that. However, pretty great pix for a 43 year old Michael Jackson!

  30. Bonnie, what do you think of this "news" which appears in many places today that Gayle King is saying on her radio show that Oprah did not initiate the upcoming interview with Katherine, that Marc Schaffel contacted Oprah stating that Katherine wanted to be on Oprah to promote her book, and when Oprah turned down the deal, Schaffel approached Oprah again saying they would sweeten the deal by allowing a short interview with the children?

    In this context, Marc Schaffel is claimed to be Katherine's "business partner". Have you heard of this guy being Katherine's business partner? Schaffel sued Michael after being fired when Michael discovered Schaffel had a questionable background. I recall seeing a photo of Schaffel with Debbie Rowe at Forest Lawn.

    Have you heard about this and do you think for one moment that Katherne would associate with this individual, Marc Schaffel?

    Her business partner, according to her book, is Howard Mann, who bears some resemblance to Marc Schaffel. Do you think Oprah/Gayle would have come up with this story to take the heat off Oprah for seemingly pursuing the Jackson family?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Bonnie,
    can I say I had the same feeling about those photos (pole-dancing Mike)? Not happy looking at all, I agree.

    May I step in with my humble twocents about the whole "the family and the kids say it ain't Michael singing on those songs"?? Personally, very personally I repeat, are we sure that this is actually something the family and the kids are saying? How and why should we believe everything Tmz or the likes of them tries to sell us? There's no factual source, nothing reliable - it's just one of those things that we, of all people, should have learnt to deal with...... I am not believing tha kids or Katherine really have a problem with the authenticity of the songs until I hear them say so or I have some reliable source for it.
    We must not forget that not all we read is true, not all we read has actually taken place or been said. And sadly this goes for too many things, even when Michael is not concerned.

    Of course you may all disagree with me, lots of love!

  32. Hi, Bonnie.
    Glad to see you back and with a great post as always.
    Regarding the Invincible Photo Shoot, I found another picture who shows us the actual movement of it and Michael's moves around the pole.
    I think he was only interpreting a character, he was not sad.
    Here is the photo link
    http://s3.amazonaws.com/twitpic/photos/large/184727985.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=0ZRYP5X5F6FSMBCCSE82&Expires=1289070204&Signature=UpFy3uOie4aVM%2B%2FpZiP%2FLz%2BJgi8%3D

    Regarding Oprah interview with the children, I think we have to wait and see.
    Someone posted somewhere that it was Marc Schaeffel who contacted and insisted with Oprah to do the show, because the Jacksons wanted publicity for them (she wasn't eager to do it and they told her she could interview the children and then she accepted).

    This is what was posted somewhere

    "According to Gayle King (on her satellite radio show) Oprah did NOT “court” or seek out the Jackson’s in any way, it was Marc Schaffel (teenporn producer/KJ biz partner) who CONTACTED the Oprah team. Oprah & her team were planning an episode on “Teen Heartthrobs” (which coincidentally aired today) and when Oprah was a kid her “crush” was Jackie Jackson. The ONLY call Oprah’s team made was to Jackie to see if he would participate.
    Days later the Oprah producer assigned to the Jackie Jackson segment received a phone call and faxed letter from Marc Schaffel on behalf of Joe & Katherine Jackson pitching an interview for KJ’s book about MJ. THE OPRAH TEAM REJECTED THE PITCH FROM MARC SHAFFEL, JOE, & KJ saying thanks but no thanks.
    A few days after Oprah’s team turned them down Marc Schaffel contacted them again to say that “Mr. & Mrs. Jackson would ‘sweeten’ the deal and allow Oprah an ‘exclusive’ interview w/ the children of MJ if she would agree to feature KJ on her show.” According to Gayle, there was MUCH debate between the producers whether or not to do the show. Gayle said the Oprah team is taking great care in the way they are featuring the kids. She said Schaffel made it clear to producers that the Jackson’s were willing to leverage the children to promote their biz ventures to other outlets".

    I tried to find out if this was true on Gail King page but I couldn't find it.

  33. @ SandyK: I had a few of those photos saved to my computer for about a week now! While I thought they were way better than the Bani ones, and I really do enjoy them... my intuitive senses told me that the whole concept of the "pole dancing" was because he felt that he was "prostituted" by $ony. After years worth of media abuse, he may have also felt like an unwilling "media whore." I'm not arguing either one of those possibilities. I couldn't blame him if that's how he felt.

  34. From Bonnie *>>>>>>> Karin, this is for you - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3VE5BK-2v4 Keep the faith girl!

    & for me ! to pray more than ever for Michael's justice : he needs it.

    THANK YOU-THANK YOU so much Bonnie & you all for the beautiful song videos & the incredible one from The Christian Faith Book : the magical beauty of this young girl's painting impressed me most. The Beauty of God is there.

    Oprah 8/11: I see at least something positive: the pleasure to see Mr. & Mrs. Jackson as great grand-parents together with the lovely MJ3; with Oprah in the middle ? No! but what can we change? I already hate in advance some of the things she will say BUT she has the largest audience in the US (or am I wrong?) & IMO Joe & Katherine Jackson - as long as they live - are the ONES who may at best & on a large public scale defend the name of their son Michael. The contributions of Michael's siblings (Jackie lately) are certainly a plus but the personality & dignity of Mrs. Jackson in particular should be most effective in the process & Oprah cannot (as I hope) afford to direct the same type of vicious questions as she did to LMP (although I disliked the way she addressed herself to Mr. Jackson in the first place).

    Just hope I'm not wrong ...OK-OK,.... Keep the Faith !

    God Bless you all.

  36. From SandyK : "http://allforloveblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/pole-dancer101.jpg"

    Many thanks Sandy. Interesting & beautiful new photos from Michael, decent of course though a bit disturbing to me : a seductive but sad "androgyne" figure reminding people of the night exploited for their seduction but whose heart is broken inside. Michael should not have accepted to be pictured that way. The great artist he was deserved better. OK, he accepted, all eccentricities are allowed to an artist after all & any possible sort of picture was already taken from Michael. But on a not comparable scale, wasn't Michael exploited all his life ? as to some photographs who insisted on Michael's androgyne" side on pictures, didn't they exploit Michael & midlead the public - especially after 1993 - on the man he really was ?

    Sorry - I don't mean to be tragic all, it is only my humble opinion.

  39. Bonnie, I agree that the pole thing doesn't sit right with me either and tends to imply other types of ideas that Michael doesn't represent. But because it's Michael, the questionable side of the entire pole concept is removed.

    I agree with your observation about Michael's demeanor. Although there are more pictures from this photoshoot on the blog I referenced. I'd be interested to know your thoughts on the other images. In fact none of the images show Michael laughing or smiling, however one of the pictures does show a more playful animated Michael.

    It would be interesting to know the exact date of the photoshoot and how it aligns with Michael's issues with how Sony was not promoting his Invincible album.

    The blogger gives more background for the images although I have to note that I don't agree with all of her observations.

  40. Bonnie, it's me Karin keeping the faith. Anyway, I was reading from another board and saw a link to Michaeljackson.com which we all know is a Sony promotional board. However, it has a large forum and the blog I was reading took me to the release of that Opus None song alleged to have been released by the secret fault site by Mrs Jackson.

    Whilst reading some of the blogs about it, I came across this threat entitled We've Had Enough:

    Great observation. I agree with the idea that he may have felt that way. Although, I'd be curious to know if the pole thing was his idea or the photographers? Although I imagine it probably was the photographers. Speaking of pole dancing, there was a segment in TII that featured a pole dancer (not Michael) for the song Dirty Diana. The day he died was the day they were to start rehearsing that segment.

    Despite the pole, these images are definitely better than the Bani photoshopped mess! These images drew me in and made me think, the other images made me go "yuk! This is NOT Michael!"

    BTW, I like your revised blog!!

    Very true. I do see what you're seeing, beautiful yet disturbing. Oddly enough your observation draws me to the images that much more to see his facial expressions and wonder what he is feeling and thinking at that moment. Certainly there's alot going on behind those amazing eyes.

    There are a few more photos than the ones I posted and many don't include the pole. I'm glad of that! Despite the questionable prop, I decided to post the images here for many reasons, one being his facial expressions and the other reason is more superficial...Michael simply looks amazing in his early 40's!! (No reason why he shouldn't of course...:-)

  45. June : comment on Gayle King/Oprah/Schaffel

    To read Marc Schaffel's name around the Jackson family made me *see red". I found a 2006 link from his past business with Michael (I'm not sure of the quality & integrity of the source). Below the article itself (1st link), it's worth reading the "Additions & updates" on Marc Schaffel & other conspirators :

    http://www.jacksonaction.com/index.php?page=search.php&id=5264&search=tommy%motolla

    http://bighollywood.breitbart.com/tag/marc-schaffel/

    More recent link :
    http://www.tmz.com/person/mark-schaffel/

    So could it be true that M. Schaffel is still around making business on MJ's name ? If so, Michael would turn in his grave, especially because of his children who should avoid this man when they grow older.

    That is why I signed the MJFUL Petition maybe too quickly : the name M. Schaffel convinced me to sign it before I really ponder on some abusive statements on that petition.

    ReplyDelete
  46. @Lady,
    I read your blog and I agree with some of the points that you made. I saw the letter of petition on another site and chose not to sign.

    I believe that all the hype and contraversy is all part of the marketing plan. It is creating interest flat and simple. Everyone and anyone with interest is talking about any and all things MJ related.

    As for the Oprah interview with Mr and Mrs Jackson and MJ's children, hmmmm. Mother J is promoting her table book and may be trying to clear rumors in regards to her son. I cringe at the thought of what Papa Joe may say. We will see Monday. As for the children....I think they are being introduced to the public and media gradually. Actually it is not a bad idea. They will be hounded the rest of thier life and allowing them to speak is an opportunity for them to learn how to deal with the media. They can learn just how vicious and manipulative the media can be and how thier words can be twisted. Its an ugly reality but something that they will need to deal with through out life.

    We all know that AEG does business with the Oprah show so really it is no big surprise that all the interviews are happening with those connected to MJ. Oprah is a smart business woman and this is all about business...Lets remember MJ was a very intelligent man!!!! One stone is killing several birds...

  47. Bonnie,
    I have been reading the posts on this blog and watched the ad for Oprah's upcoming Interview with Katherine and I don't know what to say.

    This is way over my head! Fake or Real, I won't be buying the "Michael" album, either way.

    Once again, I am shocked by all that is being said by Katherine and the children. I never saw this one coming!

    So, I am just going to keep on reading your blogs and all the posts and wait til after the Interview, before I comment.

    I just wanted you to know, I am still here.

    Intriguing!

    I personally think Katherine would know better than the kids if Michael's voice has been faked. But as has been said...until we hear that from their mouths it's all hearsay.

    Interesting.

    MJ Photos Collectors, the ones with the watermark on some of those pole photos, charges to view them by locking them behind VIP/VIP+ membership - $29.95/$39.95. Gotta love how "donation" has become synonymous with "required" to 'get past this point'. Why not just be honest and say 'We're chargin' ya for access to photos that don't freakin' belong to us"?

  49. Everyone - We are online at the hotel. This is weird. I'm on my husband's computer (mine is home . . . new home) and all my Michael pics/links/resources and references are on THAT, so I am commenting from scratch. Also the internet is much slower here in the hotel, in the city, then it is at our hew home, in the country. I am going to address some of these questions.

    Also, I have had to delete comments from certain individuals who feel compelled to post to month's old blog updates asking questions about resources posted in the very blog they are commenting on while inserting a link to their own blog.

    Well, I read their blog and there is no way they are using my blog to advertise their own. It's an old internet marketing tactic. If they want to repost without their link stuck in there that is fine, but I'm not approving blatant attempts to use my blog to promote derogatory blogs about Michael.

    June said - "Bonnie and SandyK, I'm pretty sure these pix were from a photoshoot for the Invincible album."

    That explains alot. You look at most of the songs on the invincible album and what are they about. Michael during his speeches about SONY, as well as other artists (Cobain for one) talked about the industry "prostituting" them or or their work, and about being cheapened and boxed in by the marketing machine within the industry. I get the idea behind the pole but I still don't like it and he still does not look very happy in these pictures.

    >>>>> June, you do not agree with me on one issue regarding Michael and because of this you probably will not like my answer. Yes I do believe that Katherine is or could be working with Mark Schaffel. I believe there are several people we never suspected that are working with the Jackson family. Mark (Marc?) Schaffel owns the copyright to a drug deposition taped in 2007 in reference to the Deiter Weitzner lawsuit. Marc Schaffel was fired by Michael and sued Michael in 2006, so you tell me what is going on? I wrote about this in a previous blog.

    June, either scenario that you described would fit. Oprah covering or the Jackson's putting forth a plan. That is why I say keep all eyes and ears sharp during this interview tomorrow. I thank you that you caught that because in travel I have not had time to see this.

    Yes Simo I have entertained that TMZ is lying through their teeth, but they are also playing a part in this. Their timing is impeccable in the appearance of certain news items. But yes, I have considered that TMZ's story is just a story. But for Sony to come out and try to defame it is unusual as well. Usually concerning a tabloid? They wouldn't bother.

    I read your comment and whoever posted it have their facts wrong, which makes me question the whole source. Marc was never involved in "teenporn" it was "gayporn" according to another taped deposition of Michael. Also this is written to give the impression that the Jackson's are "leveraging" the children? Please! This kind of stuff is so SONY-journalism and another stab at trying to make the Jackson's look bad and get the fans all riled up.

    Please, when you see this kind of thing, KNOW THE TACTICS OF THESE PEOPLE! Yellow journalism is not just for the papers. It takes place on Youtube, the blogs, and even Michael Jackson sites.

    I will lay you odds that Marc said no such thing. We are going to look further into this garbage when I get home. SONY . . . WE WILL NOT BE FOOLED!!!! By you EITHER BRANCA!!!

Yes you are right about Oprah having the largest U.S. audience on television. Neither Miss Katherine nor Joe have ever done their son wrong on camera. I have watched both of them interact during interviews around the trial and both of them acted with class and restraint. Joe is rather outspoken but Miss Katherine does an excellent job and coaching him back. For some reason I am not worried about this interview. I believe everything is under control.

    Just pray Josie and pray for discernment. Try to look at everything from the standpoint that there is a plan in place and people are following directions.

    Gina - Thank you. And you're right. Ron Sweet is marketing some pictures/rare pictures and collectables and TINI was telling everyone to join his site . . . DOES THE ESTATE KNOW?

    probably.

  61. @ Everyone who visited and enjoyed my blog page and my artwork too... THANK YOU!

    The reason for my "big stink" regarding: "ATTENTION!!! MJFans have OVERSTEPPED their bounds!!! Read about it here: http://ladyaquarius62.blogspot.com/2010/11/mjfamtwitter-news-nov-6-2010-edition.html" is because these "bozos" went to TMZ, and it's now on their site too: http://www.tmz.com/2010/11/07/michael-jackson-jacksonsecretvault-website-katherine-jackson-breaking-news-opis-none-howard-mann/

    While I DO support a number of issues within their petition, I DO NOT support some of their "tweeted gang tactics" being used on Taj Jackson, and other Jackson family members. WORSE... (yes, it gets worse) I've noted that many of these people are affiliated with none other than Taaj Malik!!! Is anyone surprised???

    Now...as for the upcoming release of "Michael", here's my thoughts...

    a.) IF this CD does NOT sell (now take a VERY close look at all the controversy-- plus and minus that's been generated regarding it), how fast do you think it possible that John Branca and the Estate will end up selling MJ's half of the ATV?

    b.) With point A in mind... do you see an effective $ony gameplan here? In fact, perhaps THIS is the real moment where the TINI gang earn their paychecks...

    c.) "Michael" fails. The Estate is then "forced" (cough...cough...) to sell MJ's remaining half of the ATV. $ony wins, and the Jackson Estate goes BANKRUPT.

    d.) The Jackson family loses the support of the fan base. And, here's "psycho group" (MJFUL: Michael Jackson Fans United for his Legacy) at the root cause of that ruination. Hmm... Now we can understand the areas (that I had highlighted in red on my blog page) as reasons for concern.

    So... is $ony being devious? Absolutely. They are playing both ends toward the middle, controversy will either sell or it will destroy. The TINI gang (after all Taaj Malik IS one of them now.) is also very much "alive and well" so to speak. My bet? They're hoping on the destruction so they can take over MJ's half of the ATV from the Estate. If they do this, Branca is able to take his head off of the chopping block and peacefully ride off into the sunset as a "good guy" on top of it all. THINK!!! This is why I do NOT support a "boycott." Sorry... This is what I have feared would happen, and it IS!!! Wake up!!!

    Does any of this ring any alarms here yet??? It SHOULD. But, this is my line of thought. TMZ isn't the only one being "snookered", nor is the Jackson family. Michael's FANS are!!! After all... WE are their "bread and butter" and without us... Well... now you are hopefully seeing what I am.

  62. Bonnie, this is going to sound really strange but, I was thinking. (and this how crazy minds are with all the suspicion)...................'OK, Jackie hasn't released anything in over 20 years. The Jackson reality show was kind of a flop, they couldn't get together to get anything done professionally.. Ok, remember when MJ passed and it was reported La Toya was in the home and she took all kinds of things out, including MJ's music.. etc. could it be possible MJ had materials in there that he had written and La toya has kept this stuff, and maybe MJ wrote the song Jackie is now promoting, especially the way it has been promoted and his son is this siggy person and that is who produced it, or whatnot.. I know it sounds crazy, but we ALL know that LaToya is less than credible and has in the past done and said things for one purpose only, and that is for money. She obviously does not work, I have no idea where she gets money. It was said MJ always kept alot of cash around. She apparently ransacked the Carrollwood home, but of course that is after Murray had all that time in there alone hinding items and most likely stealing items that belonged to MJ. I am sure Mj had a few rolex's and other expensive items and $$$$ hidden. Sorry, but they are a group of loosers who would do anything for money because they all have in the past. Last year LaToya had her LVegas home foreclosed on.. So, I have No idea where she gets money from.. selling MJ photos, photos of the kids.. ??? just being a little mistrusting, especially after reading the Post by MJJ-777 and Howard Mann/Marc Schaffel connection, which we already knew about Schaffel. I am not exusing Katherine, I think she teamed up with those her son would not approve. I wrote this awhile ago, but, I feel this; Katherine only has her allowance and any money she can make from the side. She has bankruptcies, judgements, etc. along with Joe, Jermaine and the other brothers on record. When Katherine passes her money trail from the estate stops. She needs to make money to leave to her other children and grandchildren as the will be out of luck when her pocketbook is no longer open. I think she has stepped in deep doo doo and is not doing what is in the best interest of Michael's Legacy, but what is in the best interest of her needs and desire to make money from MJ's name. His kids should be the only family members who can benefit from his name and likeness and I thought that is what the estate said, too.??? I think the estate has cut her a lot of slack, including the Children's lawyer who is there to look out for their Interest and their Interest only.. Maybe I am rambling, but this hookup with Mann/via Schaffel is disturbing. Schaffel and Rowe are attached literally at the hip. I believe Rowe also makes money funneled thru Schaffel's no good deeds.. I did read that Rowe cannot write a book in regards to MJ and it is in the divorce/pre nup.. Quite different from LMP.. I don't ever really except LMP will indulge and write a Tell All.. she has no need to, but thankfully, Rowe can't because I believe she would, it is all business where she is concerned..

  63. I've had a good several listens to "Breaking News", and while there are those out there, including Jackson family members saying "it's NOT Michael", I'll tell you what... it IS!!! With Hubby's permission, I cranked my PC speakers as loud as they could go (and I could possibly stand)-- my sympathies to my neighbors, but I didn't get any complaints, and I agree with Teddy Riley and (forgive me) $ony's voice authenticators. It IS Michael!!! (At least on this particular track.)

    Now... with this in mind, I've written a blog about what I truly feel is going on here, and personally? I want NO part of it. There is a WAR going on between the Estate, Sony, and the "Jacksons". BUT... what the Jacksons DON'T realize is with they're being infiltrated by the likes of Mann, Schaffel, and so forth... these buffoons are (and WILL) destroy them if their antics don't cease.

    If you noticed, I put in quotation marks around Jacksons in my previous paragraph. Why? This family is definitely in grave and tremendous danger, and their phony "advisors" KNOW it. So, here are the Jacksons... "It's NOT Michael..." and it IS!!! Let's do some mathematics here...

    $ony, being the evil crafty webweavers that they are would in fact LOVE for "Michael" to fail. WHY??? Well, this is where the plot thickens, so fasten your safety belts, as we're all headed for a crash landing...

    "Michael" fails. Branca and his Estate buddies are then SUED by $ony for damages due to "fraudulent" recordings. Hmm... Are we thinking now??? Good...

    Branca and the Estate is then "forced" to sell MJ's half of the ATV for restitution to $ony. End of the MJ Estate. It's bankrupted.

    $ony WINS, and Branca and his pals ride off into the sunset happily.

    Are we all AWAKE and ALERT now as to the "grand plan" here??? I sure hope so.

    For now, I'm off to go puke before I crawl into bed, praying I won't have any nightmares about it all along the way...

  64. Bonnie...this blog is amazing and just keeps getting better as comments are added! I sense that we are all keeping our wits about us as we look at the developing scenarios being played out. The more we scratch our head over how Oprah managed to finesse her way into Katherine's home, the more I tend to believe there has to be a "method to the madness" (as I wrote you earlier tonight). This is a game of high stakes being fought, and when it comes to safeguarding Michael's forty year legacy, you won't find a more tenacious fighter than Joe Jackson. The world - including Sony, would have to be asleep if they think Katherine and Joe lack the savvy to put mechanisms in place to protect their son, his children and the family dynasty. Everything Michael ever achieved was on the premise of being a winner, because his father taught him that anything less was not an option. Joe Jackson still has the same drive, and though he may be getting old, he's got guts.

    As for the pole dancing session, I agree about Michael's somber expressions. He's beautiful as always, but there is absolutely no joy in his face, or to put it more accurately - no spirit. We know how skillful Michael was with his body and facial expressions in creating a seductive persona (quick...get out the smelling salts!). In happier times, Michael could become anyone he wished for the sake of bringing his music to life, and he knew how to play the sensual card - enticing, a little risque, but never vulgar or offensive. You wanted him, but at the same time you wanted to protect him. He could walk that fine line between innocent and naughty. We know how shy Michael was offstage, so performing was his escape, make believe - magic.

    Having said that, why does Michael look so detached and uninvolved in these photos? Being the consummate professional that he was, Michael was tuned in to details and mindful of how he would be perceived in images at all times. He never left anything to chance. This was not a personal mood that Michael carelessly failed to conceal. I think he set the tone, with the intention of telegraphing that he was "going through the motions," but without giving his heart and soul. Michael was a gorgeous "mannequin" and metaphorically, "prostituting" himself was precisely what he was going through with Sony at the time. We know Michael was big on "messages" and in my opinion, this was a big one! As for whose idea it was to use a pole prop, I would lean toward Michael, only because it seems to play an integral part in underscoring his message, assuming we are spot on about what he wanted to say. Michael encourages thinking outside the box and if we do that here, we would see that nothing is ever as it appears.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Something else I found revealing about the photos. Remember that stunning layout he did with Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair Magazine? He may have been ten years younger at 31, but it's the way his face and body were clearly in tune with his sensual side. He looked magnificent - so relaxed that you felt he was comfortable with that side of his personality and it made you feel equally comfortable to savor and enjoy him. He wore simple black pants, the staple white T-shirt and thin silk overshirt. Yet, you could see how he was going with the moment, giving the camera exactly what it wanted. Complete with physical motion, ripped open T-shirt down to his bared navel (oh God! And those hands! That mouth!) Michael was giving it for all it was worth. He was ALIVE inside!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lX70Z3uhrc


    Compare that to what Michael was wearing in the pole shoot. The outfit was nice enough - fresh new loafers, white socks, dark pants, T-shirt and black jacket. But with a difference. He looks innocent and very "guarded." There was no fire, no sense of play, no bare chest, no navel, no expression. Michael was being resistant, not seductive in this photo shoot, which makes the pole an unwelcome presence. He had no problem "working" a microphone stand when performing "Dirty Diana," so what's wrong with this picture? If we read it right, there's plenty wrong. The pole is SONY, and Michael wants no part of it!

  72. Lady - Sony's gameplan is not a boycott of Sony. The Jackson's are not being snookered, they know EXACTLY what is going on and they have known for long before June 25th of 2009. This is why I don't buy this Sony gameplan with promoting a boycott against themselves.

    First of all, I don't believe the ATV was ever at risk, it is in play, I will give you that, but Branca will never really get his hands on it. He only THINKS he will. This plan that is in play doesn't belong to Sony . . . Sony is playing catch-up and trying to do their best to discredit the Jackson's, split the fan base and render any allies of Michael and his industry coo ineffective.

    TINI knows that a boycott against Sony will never truly be effective. It's aimed at only one segment of their market and even then only A PERCENTAGE of that Market . . . Michael Jackson fans within the music industry. TINI mentions this on their own website that they do NOT SUPPORT A BOYCOTT because they believe it will be ineffective.

    It does not matter whether we boycott Sony or not and it doesn't even matter whether we are effective or not. The ATV was protected and neither Sony nor Branca will ever own Michael's share.

  74. Spotlight - After today's show is aired I believe we all will be able to tell who called who about setting up this interview. I wish people would give the Jackson family more credit and realize that their words and actions have been JUST AS SUSCEPTIBLE to manipulation as Michael's were. This corp has been unrelenting on this family in the industry and in the press. The lies do not end with Michael.
    In your mention of Miss Katherine and Joe Jackson's "savvy" let's keep in mind that they are not acting alone and have support. They are not acting alone and without direction and they are not flying by the seat of their pants. They have lawyers and advisors and they have allies that are not beholden to the industry.

    And Spotlight . . . STOP MENTIONING THAT MICROPHONE STAND in that concert performance of Dirty Diana. There would be no more joking about flying feathers in a car if my husband saw that video. I see people mentioning that all the time and I have seen that particular performance. It is another "cover my eyes" moment. :o]

    Good point ! honestly I did not even search before (as I thought it was a cover-up from LMP). Sofar I did not find any such interviews after their divorce. The Schmuley tapes ? that was much later anyway & they were released in 2009 . Another possibility could be Randy Taraborrelli to whom Michael (true or not) may have confided in 1996.

    Plse read Para. of following link starting with "Soon after being discharged,.." :

    No, I don't and I have looked. The only place I've even seen or heard Michael mention her is in the Schmuley tapes which were not released until after he died and one other interview in which (I believe it was with Jesse Jackson) in 2003 on the radio, none of these was BEFORE Lisa Marie's scathing interviews. I have seen, heard and read every interview available online with Michael, I have them BOOKMARKED and Lisa Marie is not discussed. Michael had strict rules about what was allowed to be asked during interviews after the dirty tricks Oprah and Diane Sawyer played on him and I can imagine one of them may well have been no questions about Lisa Marie, which could be why she was not mentioned in interviews much.

    >>>> . . . And this is assuming that it is true that Katherine and the children actually testified to that not being their daddy's voice. Like one person pointed out, Sony would not have paid $250million for songs they later wanted to sabatage, even if they were trying to side-door an attempt to drive the estate to bankruptcy. They have many cheaper ways of doing that without purchasing all of those unreleased songs only to sabatage the albums they were going on. It makes no sense.

    This is why I lean toward believing the Jackson family did actually want that statement published and they did it through TMZ. Some are also still assuming that Schaffel is still a bad guy and I don't think he is. And the reason I believe he is hanging around Debbie Rowe . . . working together.

    I agree that MJ's 50% share of the catalogue is not at risk. Yes it is in play but not in the way many may think it is. Some people need to really take thier emotions out of the mix and look at this whole situation from a different perspective....BUSINESS. The business world can be ruthless and cut throat so one has to take a different approach depending on the objective of the business plan. Truth can often be stranger than fiction.

  82. @truthbtold - The pole photos - Well, it wasn't in 2001 or 2002 that is for darned sure. Michael was heavier between 2000 and 2002. His hands were also meatier (feel weird talking about this) and if you look at his wrists especially in the one picture where is right arm is at a 45 degree angle in front of his body, you can see how thin his arm is. His hands are a giveaway too. The skin around his mouth and jawline outer corner of his eyes, the shadows under his eyes when his head is angled down and in these photos you can see the age around his eyes. I would venture to guess that these photos were taken between 2007 and 2009.

  84. Jenn - I'm sorry I missed your post. Nervously awaiting the Oprah interview? Anyway, I'm sorry but I completely disagree with you on Michael's family, Debbie Rowe and to a point Marc Schaffel (how is this guy's name REALLY spelled???) Here is why:

    The people who were helping Michael after the trial are still involved in this. None of what is going on is an accident. I strongly believe this and I will explain why and how in a later blog update. I cannot let everything go right now.

    Michael's family have been behind him and FOR HIM during and since the trial. I STRONGLY BELIEVE THIS also. That family did pull together during that time in MIchael's life. I also believe that things were being arranged during the "investigation" period of that trial and family was part of that. How much each of them knew and at what time I am not yet sure of. But I believe during the trial they were brought up to speed by those that were helping Michael.

    Debbie Rowe - Has never done anything but support and defend Michael. I will be doing a blog update on her as well in the future. The lawsuits she filed? Necessary. I will tell you why another time.

    Schaffel - He was working for Micheal even after the firing and the lawsuit. That 2007 drug deposition that he owns the copyright on is proof of that. The charges of gay porn I believe will be explained by the interested parties when the time is right.

    I do not believe that Jackson's are a bunch of losers and it is unfair and playing into Sony's hands to perpetuate that idea. The Jackson's, every one of them, are talented and have their own gifts. They are NOT Michael and were never meant to be, no more than you or I.

    The press has played quite a role in blowing up every episode with that family. There are nine brothers and sisters. Jealousies and infighting and bad judgment calls are BOUND TO HAPPEN. But they also had people infiltrating that family as early as far back as when Michael himself bought that music catalog.

    I cannot honestly say that Michael's family is more dysfunctional than mine was growing up. All I can thank my God for is that my family's faults were never in the press.

  85. Hi, Bonnie - I'm so sorry...didn't mean to make you hide your eyes about the "microphone." I only wanted to draw a comparison between Michael's total freedom of expression in that performance and the noticeably cold and empty feeling of the pole shoot. And yes, I do believe Katherine and Joe are well advised about everything they say and do. So we must keep the faith! Oprah is coming on in twenty minutes, and now that I have my mother's attention on this, she is willing to watch, so I have to see it for myself! At least my TV is not hooked up to a Nielson box, so I won't contribute to her audience measurement. Love you, Bonnie! :-)

  88. Bonnie,

    I don't get it. If this plan doesn't belong to Sony then who does it belong to and what is the point?

    I saw the Oprah interview and there was nothing to it. The information was all old hat.

    1. Joe and Katherine are NOT legally Divorced.

    2. MJ was Addicted to Pain-Killers and in Denial according to Katherine.

    3. MJ bleached his face and chest and arms according to Katherine.

    4. MJ had many plastic surgeries according to Katherine.

    BIG DEAL! This information is all OLD Stuff!

    Plus, Nothing was said about this new album coming out.

    The kids are fine, so what's all the hype about?

    I don't get it. What plan?

    Please help me understand here, as I am in the dark with all this.

    Thanks,
    Josie

  89. Lady said - " agree with one thing that came out on Twitter today over the entire "is it Michael or not" crapola and the fight between the Jacksons and $ony over it, and it makes a LOT of sense, courtesy of Teddy Riley. Enjoy..."

    Lady, who are these people twittering? Now Sony is a good guy? And you're buying it? Michael never wanted to work with Sony again. Tommy Mottola is only one of the monkeys in the bunch. Bandier works for Sony as the CEO of the Sony/ATV. Have we suddenly forgotten everything? Who did Michael have the problem with . . . Speech in 2002 in London . . . SONY, AND Tommy Mottola. Is Ted Riley one of these people who posted these twitters?

    He does not know either. He also said that the voice was processed (I heard the song today, no I do not believe that one song is Michael UNLESS vocals were SEVERELY processed).

    It was on the news today that the family does not believe it is Michael's voice. Guess who I believe?

  90. Bonnie, on this Breaking News business, you and I agree, Breaking News isn't Michael. Teddy Riley is a producer who worked with Michael many times in the past and I believe all these tweets are from him. All he did was mix what the Cascios gave to him. Says he called in many others who worked with Michael and "they" say it's Michael. Riley thinks it's Michael but can't tell for sure; he says to tweet to the Cascios for answers. I believe Michael's nephews and other family members, but if Jackie and Marlon worked on this album, as we have read, I wonder why no comments from them.

    In haste to get this album out before Christmas, IMO Sony shot itself in the foot. Peace.

  91. Spotlight, the way you expressed your thoughts concerning Michael's "Invincible" photoshoot was brilliant!!! Detached and going through the motions is a perfect description. There are some hints of joy but they seem fleeting and guarded. One of the images I included in my comments was an image I almost didn't include. It's an obviously provacative image with Michael straddling the pole. I included it because of Michael's expression. He's not enjoying this "activity." This image, more than any other, portrays him in the way that you mentioned, "metaphorically, 'prostituting' himself" in regard to Sony. Locked in a "relationship" that didn't have an easy exit due to 2 faced lawyers and corrupt businessmen.

    Another very similar comparison is his demeanor in TII as compared to the Bad tour. "I've got to do this," (TII) as opposed to, "I want to do this," (Bad).

    The comparison to the Annie Leibovitz images is spot on. You're absolutely right. Michael does not show the fire and spirit he so gloriously and freely expressed in the earlier photoshoot. These, by far, are my favorite images of him. He's in the moment and enjoying every minute of it. You don't feel manipulated. Michael knew how to flip that switch but like you said, in a way that was "never vulgar or offensive." At this time, he was 31 and moving forward in his adult journey. He was on top of the world and everything was still somewhat new. At 31, he still had the freshness of someone in their early 20's and despite his long established celebrity, he had the joyfilled freedom and drive to express himself artistically. He had yet to feel the deeply lacerating pain of looming corporate curruption and manipulation.

    Speaking of which, I'm reminded of his video for the song "Leave Me Alone." (Released February 13, 1989.) He flies in a toy plane through an amusement park themed landscape littered with tabloid stories of him buying bones or sleeping in hyperbaric chambers. None of which was true. Despite the songs title, the video has a playful mood with Michael making fun of those making fun of him. At the end of the video, he is part of the landscape a.k.a. "Gulliver's Travels," and stands to his feet to rise above everything...literally!!!...and figuratively as well. Unknown to him at the time, the wolves were lurking in the shadows waiting for their moment to bring his world to a halt and attempt, and ultimately succeed, in tearing the joy and life out of his very heart and soul. In this ultimate morality play, Michael is martyred for his art, his family, his fans and his fortune.

    Thank you, your write up was a very enjoyable read!!! You express yourself very well indeed!

    (BTW, the smelling salts came in handy...:-)

  92. @Josie - you said "Michael bleached his face and chest and arms according to Katherine". I saw the interview and, respectfully, that's not what Katherine said. In discussing Michael's vitiligo, Katherine said he used something (paraphrasing here) but Katherine did not use the word "bleach". The issue of whether or not Michael "bleached" his skin has been tabloid fodder for many years and has been disproven. Michael used various makeups to even out his vitiligo in areas not covered by clothing.

  93. What I don't get, is why would Sony try and sell a Fake album when they have the Real album in their hands?

    Even if Michael made a fake album with someone else voice on it, does that mean ALL the music in THAT VAULT is Fake? I don't think so.

    That music was suppose to be for MJ's kids. So it must be the Real Thing. Right?

  94. Josie said, "3. MJ bleached his face and chest and arms according to Katherine."

    I wanted to add to this particular item. I'm sure we are all aware that this "bleaching" Katherine mentions was by necessity not choice on Michael's part. Michael had always denied bleaching his skin, but in fact he was, but not for the reasons people accused him of. 2 types of creams were found at his house after his passing. The creams he was using are routinely prescribed to vitiligo patients to even out patchy skin. Michael had a lot of patchy skin to even out due to the type of vitiligo he had.

    Anyway, just wanted to add this.

    Thanks for your insight Josie!

  95. Is it possible that Sony is mixing some fake songs with real song in order to make more money off Michael's name?

  96. Josie, June, SandyK, Spotlight et al. My husband is now asleep in the same hotel room and I therefore have to go to bed. I cannot type anymore tonight.

    FYI, saw a post by Karen Faye bashing the Cascios. I guess they are now Sony's next target of attack on Twitter.

    Interesting developments. June, You are right. It is not Michael. And the pole pictures? NOT Invincible era . . . at ALL. Blog part 2 tomorrow.

    Love to all and nitey nite. Darn!

  97. Interesting point about the pole pictures perhaps not being of the Invincible era. I assumed they were due to another blog identifying them as such. But you're right, they may be of a different time. In 2001, Michael was wearing his hair short and somewhat messy. It's hard to know exactly when, but sometime after 2001, Michael started to wear lace wigs/hair extensions more often. His hair line had changed and became much straighter as well. During the Bashir trash-u-mentary, the texture and length of Michael's hair changes over the 8 months that Bashir was following him around (just that thought is creepy and we're only a week past Halloween!). At times it's shoulder length and other times it's just below his ears. The pole photo shoot shows him with long straight hair. Certainly, hair extensions can be added and removed at any time but his hair in the pole images looks like his hair at least on top. O.k., I'm rambling now, so I'll stop and look forward to reading your thoughts on the issue.

  98. I like the song. Yes the voice is processed but I think the vocals are meant to have a processed sound.

    Teddy Riley is a accomplished producer who had worked with MJ on many projects in the past and he mixed the tracks out of respect and love for MJ. I remember when he was interviewed on CNN after MJ's passing and he could not hide his emotions and Don Lemon was quick to point it out.

    The main things I learned from the interview today was that Mrs Jackson said Murray informed her that MJ did not make it. Remember Dileo said he told her and the children that MJ had passed while Randy Phillips was outside the door of the room. Randy P said the same thing in a interview he gave. MJ did not trust anyone after the trial but his mother. With all respect to Mrs Jackson, she mentioned that she had been told things or had heard. She did not believe MJ when he told her that he did not have a addiction problem although she wanted to believe him. Mother love is a strong love, I could relate.
    Papa Joe was not that bad and admitted that he whipped his children, which was no surprise.
    The children are typical children and seemed to have adjusted well to thier reality. They are intelligent and gave me the impression that they were very aware of thier unique lifestyle and they had a clear understanding of why certain decisions were made. Paris is a sharp young lady and I think she will be a very successful actress as well as Prince as a producer and director. Blanket, the baby as Mrs Jackson referred to him is a doll.

    I admit I would love to see the outtakes.

  99. Bonnie: I agree with Riley in the sense of Michael had issues with Mattola. I also believe that Michael had issues with Bandier. But, I don't think he had issues with everyone affiliated with Sony. Why? I think Michael believed that Bandier was the puppet master to Mattola being the puppet. Mattola is also known to have (and possibly still have) mafia ties. Yeah... he's a rather scary dude for all intents and purposes. But also note how quickly and easily that Mattola was "fully expendable" once Michael was released from his contract. That in itself is a big clue that Bandier had his own little band of hoodlums, and obviously was bigger than Mattola.

    Let me also say this... I don't believe that everyone Bandier has as hoodlums if you will are directly linked to Sony either. So yeah... that gives me pause in agreement with Teddy Riley as far as "not all" of Sony was Michael's enemy. I hope that now you understand. There is something here that really concerns me, and it goes even DEEPER than the Sony/Bandier connection. On that note, I suggest a bit of research going back to the "Moonies" (Koreans) that wanted the Jacksons to perform including Michael. The "Moonies" pre-paid for those concerts and Michael refused to perform with his brothers. A lawsuit, ensued because of it.

    In any case, these "Moonies" are also a rather dangerous bunch. In any case, just how many people wanted Michael dead??? Hmm... quite a few. You may be wise to do some checking on those people. Why? They're the ones who want to sue Joseph and Katherine for non-payment on her lawsuit related to that whole botched concert deal now that she is seemingly making money off of Michael's death.

    Lastly, I do believe that this whole issue and feud over the authenticity of Michael's voice on the upcoming release is yet another round but a more vicious version of "smoke screen" to keep the fans busy and it's intentionally meant to draw them off course.

  100. Oooh, Michael in the Vanity Fair Shoot - was it circa 1989? Beautiful - perfection.

    Double oooh, Michael in Dirty Diana tearing the white tee shirt? The stop/rewind/pause button on my remote suffered overuse syndrome because of that video.

    Absolutely two of my all time favourites. Sorry, off topic I know but what can I say? I'm still a woman in love.

  101. Bonnie - about the interview (and I am sure you will get into the PPB part), Michael's children are so impressive, even little Blanket, such a testament to their father's love and care. There is at least one scene where Prince's vitiligo is visible, in the same area of his upper underarm as was depicted in the photo taken this summer. Paris has grown so much; looking forward to your blog on this aspect.

    About the "pole" pictures, I'm not the only one who thought they were from Invincible era; I believe SandyK first mentioned it when she posted them; your observations are interesting in that Michael does look somewhat facially different from the jacket cover I have with his Invincible pix. I'm going to check this again.

  102. Like June, I'm also looking forward to part 2 of your post on the most recent Oprah interview. I just finished watching part 3 with the kids and was impressed with all of them. They're great kids and I wish them the very best. Oh, by the way, it was great hearing Paris talk about how her dad made the best breakfasts, especially french toast. Prince shared how he enjoyed walking on the beach with his dad. Activities that most anyone can relate to. In so many ways, Michael, an extra-ordinary man, was a normal guy who did normal dad stuff. And why not!...:-)...:-)...:-)

    Another moment that stood out is when Oprah asked Paris what she would miss most about her dad, she gave the best answer that could be given, "I'll miss everything."

    I also noted how Prince's voice has lowered since his appearance on the Grammy's last January with Paris. At 12 years old he was very poised and composed during that event as he and his siblings accepted an award for their dad.

    Thank you Paris, Prince and Blanket fot letting us get to know (even if it's only a little bit) the Michael, I mean dad, that you knew so well. The 3 of you are a blessing to him and to his legacy. God bless each one of you!!!!...:-)

  103. My take on these pictures of Michael and that Pole are as follows.

    1. There is No Life in them.

    2. Michael looks like he Hates posing for these pictures. He doesn't smile in ANY of the pix.

    3. He looks like he's just going through the motions but, his Heart is not in it.

    I personally Do Not Like ANY of these pictures.

  104. I want to point you back to a couple of blog updates I did back in the spring and summer:

    http://michaelsguardian.blogspot.com/2010/08/michael-jackson-know-about-transitional.html
    and part 2
    http://michaelsguardian.blogspot.com/2010/08/transitional-and-michael-jackson.html

    We are going to start putting some of this information together.
    ----------------------


    Hi Bonnie:

    Since Wells Fargo took over Michael's loan from Barclay during September of this year, did they forfeit their option to get 25% of Michael's half of the Sony/ATV catalogue?

    Also, did Sony excersise their option to purchase 25% of Michael's half of the Sony/ATV catalogue?

    What I am trying to find out is does Sony have control of the catalogue or is their option still on the table?

    When you start to put the peices together, can you address this area as well?
