Michael Jackson exhibit to open in LA


A new exhibit dedicated to late popstar Michael Jackson is to open later today in Los Angeles.

The singer's brother Jermaine will attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Madame Tussauds Hollywood this afternoon in honour of the grand opening of the Michael Jackson Experience.

The Michael Jackson Experience features wax figures of Michael as well as multimedia clips which highlight his journey from his childhood in Gary, Indiana to his multi-platinum recording career.

Attendees will be allowed to take photographs next to three Jackson wax figures and a collection of the popstar's memorabilia.

The $55m (£34m) exhibition will be open the general public until Labour Day (September 5).

Later this week, the legendary leather jacket that Jackson wore in the 'Thriller' music video will go up for auction in Beverly Hills.

Debate over Michael Jackson's death ...

#3  Сообщение Trueamore » 26 июн 2011, 18:53

http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/Music/0 ... ss_showbiz

Debate over Michael Jackson's death clouds his legacy

Two years after his death, music legend and celebrity icon Michael Jackson's legacy remains clouded by the debate over how he died and who, if anyone, is to blame.

A Los Angeles coroner ruled that a surgical anesthetic called Propofol killed the then 50-year-old Jackson, in combination with several sedatives found in his blood, on June 25, 2009.

Ever since, there have been ongoing efforts -- from awards to statues to new songs -- to keep his memory, and music, alive. Still, much of the talk about one of the world's most celebrated singers has occurred in courtrooms, centered around a host of cases related to his untimely death.

Authorities claim that his personal doctor, Conrad Murray, administered the fatal dose. He has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the singer's death. The doctor's defense attorney, Ed Chernoff, contends Jackson was "a desperate man in many respects" and gave himself the fatal dose of surgical anesthesia while the doctor was not watching.

One of Michael's sisters, LaToya Jackson, told CNN's Piers Morgan this week that her brother "told me that they were going to murder him" -- identifying "they" only as "the people involved in his life, the people that were controlling him."

The late singer's father, Joe Jackson, also fingered unidentified individuals in an interview with CNN on Saturday.

"We're striving for justice, because there's more to it than they're claiming," said Joe Jackson, who has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray and also said he's still fighting over who controls his son's estate. "There is somebody else involved."

The singer's mother, Katherine Jackson, has filed a lawsuit accusing AEG Live of causing her son's death by pushing him to rehearse for his comeback concerts despite poor health. In the suit, she described Jackson in his last months as "confused, easily frightened, unable to remember, obsessive, and disoriented."

Yet for all the legal entanglements, the last 24 months has also been marked by numerous attempts to celebrate, give new life to and capitalize on the singer's historic career.

According to Forbes, Jackson's estate brought in a whopping $275 million between October 2009 and 2010. The singer's good fortune is due in large part to licensing deals cut by executors of his estate, a surge in sales of his music catalog and the $250 million box office of the Sony Pictures film, "This Is It."

That documentary, focused on the singer's preparations for his world tour, came out within months of his death. Sony was under a contractual obligation with Jackson's estate to not use anything that showed the icon in "a negative light" -- though Pastor ruled that additional, raw footage could be used in Murray's upcoming trial.

In a rare public appearance, two of Jackson's three surviving children -- Prince Michael and Paris -- appeared in January 2010 at the Grammy Awards to help accept a Lifetime Achievement Award on their father's behalf. The singer's music and dance also inspired a Cirque du Soleil show, "Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour."

And for months, there's also been talk about a full-length album entitled "Michael," featuring 10 songs and collaborations with rapper 50 Cent and rocker Lenny Kravitz -- including a duet with Akon that was released online last November.

But not all such Jackson-related efforts have been directly tied to his music.

Mohammed Al Fayed, for instance, helped erect a statue of Jackson to stand outside the stadium of English Premier League football club Fulham, which he owns. The Egyptian-born businessman, who had owned Harrods department store and was a friend of the singer, told fans -- some bemused and others questioning the statue's relevance -- they can "go to hell" if they object.

Also in England (but not the United States), the Discovery Channel planned to broadcast a special early this year featuring a re-enactment of Jackson's autopsy. But the program, "Michael Jackson's Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson," was dropped before airing after repeated complaints.

Investor Reginald Garcia said this spring that he will use cash from the sale of 130 unpublished photos he had taken of a then-19-year-old Jackson to fund testing of a motor that he claims generates more electricity than it uses.

And this weekend, the King of Pop's signature red and black jacket with "winged shoulders," which he wore during the filming of the iconic "Thriller" music video, was one of several pieces of music memorabilia up for sale at a California auction.

In his interview Saturday with CNN, Joe Jackson touted his plan to further develop his son's dream and build amusement parks -- called "Happyland" -- around the world. (In the same interview, he also publicized his new "Jackson" cologne and vodka, called "Vodka Precious.")

"I'm grieving over Michael," the late singer's father said. "It's going to take me a long time to get over what happened to him."

Katherine Jackson told CNN this past spring that she struggles each day without Michael, even as she cares for his children, whom she has legal custody over.

"There's not a day that passes I don't think about my child, and he should be here right now," his mother said.

Джексон круче всех!

Джексон круче всех!
Опубликовано 30 Июня 2011 г.
http://www.eg.ru/daily/worldstars/26312/
По опросу 10 миллионов читателей журнала «New Musical Express», вокалистом №1 в истории музыки назван Майкл ДЖЕКСОН. Поп-король до последнего бился за признание с фронтменом «Queen» Фредди МЕРКЬЮРИ. В итоге Джеко получил средний балл 9,2 из десяти возможных, а его конкурент - 8,39.

Майкла ДЖЕКСОНА 10 миллионов человек признали лучшим певцом в истории

На третьем месте рейтинга - король рок-н-ролла Элвис Пресли. Как видим, к сожалению, лучшие певцы уже отправились в мир иной. Ближайший к пьедесталу почета живой кумир - Эксл Роуз занимает четвертое место. Лучшая женщина-вокалистка не поднялась выше десятого места.

В Екатеринбурге открыли памятник Майклу Джексону

#5  Сообщение Белая роза » 01 июл 2011, 23:39

http://photomonster.ru
В субботу, 25 июня, в Екатеринбурге на пешеходной улице Вайнера, напротив торгово-развлекательного центра «Гринвич», состоялось торжественное открытие первого в России памятника королю поп-музыки Майклу Джексону весом около 500 кг. Инициатива установки памятника принадлежит екатеринбургскому фан-клубу Майкла Джексона «INVINCIBLE».

«Майкл Джексон — вдохновитель. Он изменил мою жизнь. За пару месяцев до его ухода из жизни, увидела по «Муз-ТВ» его концерт, во время которого некоторых людей уносили с него в истерике. И я подумала: «Вот это человек». Стала смотреть его видео, концерты, слушать его песни. Собираться с фан-клубом у стены Майкла Джексона, рядом с памятником группе «Битлз». И когда Майкла не стало мы поняли, что стены не достаточно, необходимо поставить памятник»,— рассказала одна из участниц екатеринбургского фан-клуба Майкла Джексона «INVINCIBLE» Юлия Прокофьева.

На открытии памятника участницы «INVINCIBLE» под музыкальные отрывки из песен Майкла Джексона в белых майках, черных пиджаках и шляпах исполнили танцы по мотивам и образам клипов короля поп-музыки. Одна из его многочисленных поклонниц Валерия Бейер исполнила песню, посвященную Майклу.

«После смерти Майкла Джексона я решила посмотреть один из его концертов. И просто погрузилась в мир Майкла. Он дал мне толчок заниматься музыкой профессионально. В 2009 сочинила музыку, а мама написала слова к песне «Майкл»,— рассказала Валерия Бейер.

Мама Валерии Вероника Лоншакова добавила, что она, не сговариваясь с дочерью, увидела одновременно с ней именно этот концерт.

«Я была в Каменске-Уральском, а моя дочь в Екатеринбурге. После него я позвонила Валерии, что поделиться впечатлениями, и узнали, что она тоже его смотрела. Очень жаль, что упустили шанс увидеть Джексона раньше. Его мало показывали, и часто не ту информацию. А на том концерте показали его общение с публикой, и я поняла какой он на самом деле человек»,— говорит Вероника Лоншакова.

После торжественного открытия памятника, пришедшие поклонники со слезами на глазах клали к его ногам цветы и фотографии со словами: «Майкл — ты жив, мы тебя любим»!

Michael Jackson’s Forgotten Fortune

Michael Jackson’s Forgotten Fortune: Secret Art Collection Uncovered & Valued At $900M

Michael Jackson secretly left behind an almost billion-dollar secret art fortune that is now at the center of an international tug of war, Star has exclusively learned.

The never-before-seen collection would have insured the King of Pop's surviving children were looked after for life. But in a startling twist, the secret vault has been sold out from underneath them, at a 'bargain basement' price, relatively speaking.

Lawyers running the late Thriller singer's estate are moving to block the $87.7 million sale to an undisclosed international businessman, in a desperate attempt to return the incredible treasure to Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8, and their guardian, Jackson's mother Katherine.

In an astonishing appraisal of the 182-pieces, obtained exclusively by Star, the “rare intact major collection” was valued at a whopping $902.52 million, with “an invaluable pedigree for future sales in the international art market.”

“Michael’s mystique in life combined with this exposure of his wonderful fine art creations following his tragic death will escalate the value of these works and the popularity of his artistic vision worldwide,” appraiser Eric Finzi, a certified member of the International Society of Appraisers, wrote in a document obtained by the magazine.

“I do not think we have begun to see the true value of this fine art yet.”

The loot is so valuable that it’s worth almost more than Jackson’s other assets combined, including copyrights to his pop hits and the Beatles' catalog, which he purchased in 1998 for $47.5 million.

Jackson, who was once famously called “a millionaire who lived like a billionaire,” built the extensive collection of sculptures and sketches that he drew while being taught by an Australian artist, Brett-Livingston Strong, who was a close friend.

Strong and his advisors orchestrated the deal recently, Star has learned.

In a letter sent to the artist, Dr. Tohme Tohme, Jackson’s last business manager and spokesperson, paved the way for the sale, transferring over the collection of artwork -- free of charge -- "to keep, sell, copy, exhibit and to use in whatever way you wish."

"Michael wants you to know he is truly grateful for the loyalty you have shown him over the years, and he views this as a small token of appreciation for your continued friendship and artistic partnership," Dr. Tohme wrote in the hand-signed letter, dated November 17, 2008, obtained by Star.

But now legal experts are now examining the validity of the document concerned that it could be a fake.

They also have questions over Jackson’s knowledge of the purported agreement.

"Michael's signature nor his initials are inked on the document that purports to gifts hundreds of millions of dollars to Strong, at a time when Michael was swamped in debt," a source close to the Jacksons told Star.

"It doesn't make sense that he would give it up."

The insider added: "Michael's mother and his children were the dearest thing to him in his life, so it beggars belief that he would not want them to benefit from this collection, financially."

Complicating matters, the source close to the Jacksons said Dr. Tohme has refused to swear an affidavit confirming the letter was true.

He was asked to do so by Howard Mann, the controversial Toronto gambling entrepreneur who is Katherine Jackson's business partner, Star has learned.

While Mann refused to comment when contacted about the deal, it's emerged he was bidding for the collection against Guy Laliberté, the former street performer who founded Cirque du Soleil and went on to become a billionaire. Neither man was successful.

The collection is as bizarre as the rest of the singer's turbulent life and includes intricate designs for chairs, gates, sculptures and elaborate doors he dreamed of installing at Neverland, Jackson’s former home (and amusement park and zoo), located 125 miles northwest of Los Angeles.

Each item tells a story about Jackson and throw light on mysteries which have puzzled fans for decades.

Star uncovered:

* Sketches of Jackson’s own feet doing his signature move from 'Billie Jean', the Moonwalk, now one of the best-known dance techniques in the world. Those original drawings have been valued at $600,000 each.
* His fascination with the number 7. In a series of artworks, Jackson sketched the numeral -- which coincided with the star's three biggest albums -- "Thriller," "Bad" and "Dangerous" -- each producing 7 top 40 hits. Jackson was also the 7th of 9 children.
* Recreations of the Statue of David and Dying Slave, the masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo.
* His first work of art, "We the People," on Presidential archival paper. It’s said to be worth $3 million, according to the appraisal.
* An interesting political relic: The U.S. Presidency Seal signed by President Ronald Reagan. Jackson had visited the White House on May 16, 1984.
* After that visit, Jackson sketched ‘The White House Doors’ -- a drawing appraisers have estimated is worth at $3 million.
* Sketches of Martin Luther King, President Abraham Lincoln and President George Washington, worth in all, more than $8.1 million, it’s suggested.
* A self portrait emblazoned on a plaque to be the feature of an entrance to a theater at Neverland. There’s also an image of what Jackson titled the ‘Peter Pan Magic Gate.’
* Hand-signed sepia prints of ‘The Book,’ reputed to be the only portrait he ever posed for. The portrait depitcs Jackson dressed in red velvet holding a journal of thoughts and sketches.
* Sketches of the plane with which the Orville and Wilbur Wright achieved controlled flight. Jackson was said to have been fascinated with how the Wrights were able to fly. In a 2007 visit to the the Smithsonian's National Air and Space and American Indian museums, he lingered over the actual 1903 Wright Flyer.


The collection also includes a rocking chair made by one of President John F. Kennedy’s White House staffers for the president’s use in the oval office during his term in office.

The chair was presented to Michael by Walt Disney’s brother, Roy E. Disney.

The art was created at a top secret and inconspicuous airport hanger at Santa Monica Airport in California, Star has learned.

“The successful bidder put down a payment of $37.7 million to secure the art and agreed to pay a further $50 million upon receipt of a release from the estate,” an insider close to the deal told Star.

“That’s what raised the red flag — the release has not been forthcoming and it’s ignited this tug of war."

As Star reports, the Jacksons and the estate are now working on a challenge against the document. See the disputed document -- along with sketches of the amazing art collection -- in the latest edition of Star, which is on newsstands now.

Quick quips: Jimmy Page, Bret Michaels, Michael Jackson,

#7  Сообщение Белая роза » 16 июл 2011, 14:39

A four-day cruise out of Miami that was to be for fans of Bret Michaels has been cancelled. Michaels had promised to be out-and-about all during the cruise and even would do some guest bartending.
According to the cruise line, it was because of "lack of participation" (not sure if this was supposedly on Michael's part or they just weren't selling tickets) but Michaels said he had been actively participating. "I want to reassure everyone that I have went out of my way to try and make this the best fan cruise on the high seas. Know that I am working hard to right this wrong."


Even in death, Michael Jackson still packs a huge punch in the world of social networking. He is currently fourth on the list of musicians with the most Facebook fans, behind Eminem, Lady Gaga and Rihanna. He currently has almost 38 million fans to Eminem's 43 million.
Another late artist sits at number 10 on the list. Bob Marley currently has just over 28 million fans.

Стали известны имена некоторых участников трибьют-концерта

#9  Сообщение Белая роза » 13 авг 2011, 11:34

http://www.rbc.ua/rus/digests/show/stal ... 2011144600

Названы некоторые участники трибьют-концерта памяти Майкла Джексона, который состоится в октябре в Уэльсе.

В музыкальном мероприятии памяти короля поп-музыки примут участие Кристина Агилера, Си Ло Грин, Смоки Робинсон, JLS, Крейг Дэвид, Alien Ant Farm, Леона Льюис и другие, сообщает издание Wales Online.

Опубликованный перечень еще будет дополнен несколькими именами.

Список вызвал неоднозначную реакцию у поклонников творчества Майкла Джексона. По мнению некоторых из них, в шоу могли бы принять участие артисты с более громкими именами.

Кроме того, билеты на шоу нельзя назвать дешевыми. Так, стандартные сидячие места обойдутся в 87 фунтов стерлингов (почти 100 евро), а места в центре с хорошим обзором сцены - в 240 фунтов (274 евро).

Билеты можно будет приобрести на официальном сайте концерта. Для этого необходимо зарегистрироваться в системе, и только после этого пользователь получит доступ к форме заказа билетов.

Концерт памяти Майкла Джексона состоятся в Кардиффе на стадионе Миллениум 8 октября.

Ранее сообщалось о том, что не все члены семьи Джексона поддерживают этот концерт. Против него выступают братья покойного, Джермайн и Рэнди, а также сестра Дженет.

Они недовольны тем, что запланированный на октябрь концерт будет проходить в те дни, когда в США начнется суд над врачом Конрадом Мюрреем - именно его подозревают в непреднамеренном убийстве Джексона.
