Most of us got the nether tingles when word came out that Idris Elba and his maybe-maybe-not giant trouser snake were in negotiations to play 007 and double-oh-how-many-inches-is-it, respectively. Idris would have been the first black James Bond, but word is coming out that the role could have had just as momentous a turn years earlier had Michael Jackson gotten his way. Michael wanted to play 007. Alas, the audition sounds like a disaster. I’m shocked!
What you are looking at above are two German Michael Jackson impersonators. That’s probably not exactly a shock to you, but it turns out those fake Michael Jacksons might be about as real as some of the Michael Jackson music Sony has been releasing in the nine years since his death.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your day so far, because it’s about to get gross and dark. Happy Thursday!
Conrad Murray, the shady doctor who served two years for manslaughtering Michael Jackson, is back with a message. And it is not a pleasant one. As you may be aware, the patriarch of the Jackson family, Joe Jackson, recently died. Well, Conrad heard about the death and he had some words to say about it. Continue reading
Prolific poet Ludacris once said, “I’ve got hoes, in different area codes (area, area codes..codes).” Well, 84-year-old Quincy Jones is living that piece of eloquent prose and has even taken it international.
Quincy did an interview with Chris Heath for GQ, and it’s a wild, messy ride (like the scene after Quincy and his 22 pieces have a group meet-up) from start to finish. Horny Ole’ Q gets into how he bought drugs from Malcom X , turned down Marilyn Monroe (uh huh), watched Ray Charles shoot heroin into his own nutsack (Ray’s not Quincy’s), always thought Elvis was a shit singer and was supposed to be at Sharon Tate’s house the night of the Manson Family Murders. (Why does every celebrity from the late-60s have a story about how they were supposed to be at Sharon Tate’s house that night?).
Quincy doesn’t only talk about the past, he talks about the now too, like how he hates Taylor Swift’s songs and how he’s got the United Nations of pepaw dicks.
It involved Zac apologetically turning down a Jesus Juice get-together. I kid! Tom Cruise’s favorite pole dancer, Zac Efron, made a return appearance on The Graham Norton Show and had a heartwarming MJ story to tell. Michael Jackson was a big fan of High School Musical, Zac was a big fan of Michael Jackson, and tears were shed when the two got on the phone together.
Jermaine Jackson smiles today, because he’s not living in fear that a lawsuit settlement will cut into his precious monthly spray-on hair stipend.
In 2013, choreographer Wade Robson filed a lawsuit against Michael Jackson’s estate alleging that MJ had molested him as a child at Neverland Ranch for nearly a decade. In 2015, a court rejected his claim against the estate itself, so he was allowed to sue two companies controlled by the estate, MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures. Four years later, and that lawsuit is done. The Hollywood Reporter says that a judge ruled on Tuesday that the companies controlled by the Michael Jackson Estate aren’t liable for Wade’s alleged childhood sexual abuse.
