Peter King Republican Congressman of New York tells the media to stop covering “low-life” Michael Jackson and start talking about the sacrifices of average citizens like police officers, firefighters and teachers.

Rep. King makes some interesting points about media coverage & the glorification of celebrities, yes the the Buzz really said that, pretty open minded huh? considering this blog covers celebrities!

We agree that the contributions of everyday people like  teachers, soldiers, firefighters are extraordinary and should be celebrated, however, our agreement with  King stops there.

King is very narrow minded & short-sited in his commentary.  Consider this post from our partner Hip Hop Spy, “Our grief shows Michael’s star power transcends gender, culture, race, geography & age.”

The global reaction to Michael Jackson’s death shows Michael’s contributions united the real people “aka the firefighters, teachers, shop keepers” of our world, across cultures, races, generations and countries in a way no government can ever hope to do.

Monday, June 29th, 2009

http://hostphotofree.comMichael Jackson’s family secured temporary custody of the superstar’s children today.

The children – Prince Michael, 12; Paris Michael, 11; and Prince Michael II, 7 – will now stay with the Jackson family until a further hearing on August 3.

The hearing will take place at the Los Angeles Superior Court where Mrs Jackson filed guardianship papers.

Jackson’s mother is reportedly also taking legal steps to gain control of her son’s estate. The Jacksons’ lawyer said the family had not yet heard from Debbie Rowe, the mother of the two older children. The youngest was born to a surrogate mother.

A lawyer for the family, Londell McMillan has said that the family have not seen a copy of the star’s will.

Members of the family are expected to meet activist Reverend Al Sharpton at the family compound in Los Angeles today to finalise plans for a fitting memorial for Jackson.

Michael Jackson has Strange Requests for 02 Arena Concerts

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

http://hostphotofree.comMichael Jackson has reportedly made a series of strange demands for his comeback shows at London’s O2 Arena.

His latest demands? A children’s choir made up of little ones who can sing while using sign language with exact equal representation of white, black, mixed race and asian children.

The request also includes six marching drummers who are “young adults and clean-cut”.

Sources close to promoters AEG said: “Normally when we cast choirs for acts, it’s quite a laborious task – but in this case it’s proving a near impossibility.”

“Promoters are desperate to keep Jacko happy and their pulling out all the stops to make it happen, but it’s a race against time.”

Earlier in the year Jackson was forced to postpone some his shows at the O2 Arena this summer. Jackson’s camp stressed the delay was not due to health reasons.

Fans with tickets to three of the initial concerts will have to wait until Spring 2010 to see him.

Jackson’s 50 date residency in London will run from July to February next year.

Michael Jackson adding Magic to his upcoming Concerts

Friday, May 15th, 2009

Despite the current legal threat to Michael Jackson’s ballyhooed comeback, the King of Pop is pressing on with his $20 million production.

With Billboard estimating that Jackson’s 50 shows this summer at London’s O2 Arena could end up taking in more than $100 million-plus another $15 million in merchandise sales-Jacko is in the process of adding even more bells and whistles to what promises to be one heck of a spectacle, whichever way the ball bounces.

E! News has confirmed that magician Ed Alonzo, who most recently helped trick out Britney Spears’ Circus tour, has come aboard to fashion some magical moments for Jackson’s shows.

“I met with Michael Jackson a couple of days ago and am now officially creating magic and illusions for his concert,” Alonzo said Friday. “I will not be performing in the show as I do with Britney. I’m just creating the magic that Michael has requested in his vision.”
