So, is there anybody out there who’s not making some cash off this poor guy?
For those of you who didn’t notice, Jermaine Jackson is making the media rounds pimping his new book about his younger bro, Michael Jackson. The book is titled “You Are Not Alone: Michael, Through a Brother’s Eyes” (autographed copy available here). Even though his intentions with the book might be good, but I still think he’s whoring out his brother like everybody else.
By far, the most shocking revelation in the book was that Jermaine had an elaborate plan (or so he claims) to kidnap Michael if he was convicted & jailed at his 2005 child abuse trial. Truth or pure fiction conjured up simply to sell the book? Who knows.
Anyway, here’s an excerpt from an interview he did w/ ABC:
A music video for (murdered) Michael Jackson’s single “Hollywood Tonight” was shot in the wee hours earlier this morning outside the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles. The lead role was taken by a female dancer who successfully performed the King of Pop’s signature moves—including his patented Moonwalk as cars whizzed by!
Once again, it’s very sad how Michael Jackson’s legacy is being hijacked and raped by lawyers, “friends” of the family and even financially motivated family members. I guess that’s the painful price of fame & fortune.

These were snapped last night at the Nokia Theater in Hollywood.
So, who’s gonna watch one of the most popular flicks out this weekend?
“Michael Jackson’s This Is It” will only be in theaters a two week limited release, so make sure you catch it on the big screen. I’m pretty sure the estate will wring every penny out of the footage, so a DVD release is definitely in the future.
Anyway, here’s what film’s tour director Kenny Ortega has to say:
The footage that was captured from the early stages of the production to our technical rehearsals at the STAPLES Center in L.A. will show Michael as he truly was, creatively involved with every aspect of the production, from the staging and choreography, to the music, lighting, production design and conception of the original short films and video backdrops. This Is It was Michael’s last theatrical work and although it was still a work in progress, I think the footage will show that the process was something that Michael deeply enjoyed. [Source]
One thing’s for sure though, the background dancers are gonna make out big with this release. If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to befriend the following dancers in L.A. (they’re mentioned in the credits): Daniel Yao, Nicholas Bass, Daniel Celebre, Mekia Cox, Christopher Grant, Misha Hamilton, Shannon Holtzapffel, Devin Jamieson, Charles Klapow, Ricardo Reid, Danielle Rueda Watts, Tyne Stecklein, and Timor Steffens.

The movie hits theaters on October 28th, but to help set the world ablaze in insane amounts of buzz, the tickets are being sold a month in advance to the film documenting Michael Jackson’s rehearsals of the concert series of the same name from April, 2009 until his unfortunate passing/murder in June.
The movie will only be shown for only a two week period, so taking into consideration the sheer number of fans who’ll watch each & every engagement, we highly recommend staying up tonight to Fandango your tix at 12:01AM. Just in case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer:
And in separate news, Michael Jackson’s former friend & confidante (ya right!), a money-grubbing, fame-whore who likes to call himself “America’s Rabbi,” Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, appeared on Dateline NBC last night to pimp his latest book “The Michael Jackson Tapes.” For some f’d up reason Rabbi Boteach taped his convos with Michael back in the late 80s through early 90s with hopes that one day he’ll make millions. That day is finally here.
When asked why he’s cashing in on these tapes, the Rabbi looked straight into the cameras and coldly claimed that Michael would’ve loved for this to happen. I have to admit, 2009 is turning out to be a shitty year for Judaism. First Madoff and now this dude. What the fuck?
You’d think there would at least a marble statue of the king, but there’s nothing. There’s just a life size statue of Jesus and the poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling carved into a marble back. Here’s more info from the photo agency…
This will have “Made in Japan” stamped on it, so you know it’s quality shit. I’m pretty sure MJ’s music is loaded into the mask so that when you put it on, all you hear are his chart topping hits! Those Japanese people have everything figured out!
The same company that brought us Barack Obama masks is creating 100s of Michael Jackson masks in an attempt to capitalize on the “King of Pop” buzz. For legal reasons the Tokyo-based Ogawa Rubber claims the masks only resemble Michael Jackson. Officially, the company calls the masks ‘A Nice Man’ and only coincidently has them available in two colors: Black & white.
After leaving the ranch back in ’05 following his acquittal from child molestation charges filed by white supremacist whorebags, it appears as if Michael has finally detached himself from his once famous California residence which sits just north of Santa Barbara. The buyer is the same private equity firm that helped him refinance his debt of roughly $24mil when the property was up for auction due to financial negligence on Michael’s part.
I have a feeling investment firms don’t just go around buying up wildly mysterious assets of world superstars just so they can throw crazy, kinky parties in them, so we’re gonna assume Michael’s Neverland Ranch will be open to the public within a couple years. It’ll be like California’s other Disney Land w/ a slightly tainted past and far better background music. Let’s hope Michael worked out some juicy terms so he can continue to get some kickbacks from the theme park.
For those of you who don’t know much about the ranch, it’s pretty much the ultimate pad for throwing crazy parties. It contains, among other things, a zoo and a theme park, with a Ferris wheel, merry-go-round, zipper, spider, sea dragon, wave swinger, super slide, dragon wagon kiddie roller coaster, and bumper cars. And of course, it is named after Neverland, the fantasy island in the story of Peter Pan, where children never grow up—one of Michael’s many personal tragedies. Above the entrance, there’s a sign that reads, ‘Abandon Virginity All Ye Who Enter Here’. Very tasteful, Michael.
Sorry if this is kinda old, but these photos were supposed to go up last week while our servers were down.
Anyway, as you guys know, The Bastardly has always supported Michael Jackson in his fight against the racist bastards who tried to put his ass behind bars. Big props to the people in the U.A.E. for allowing Michael to live in peace.
Here are a few more pics of Mr. Jackson from his recent trip to Japan.
