Michael Jackson’s Estate Is Closing In On A Deal To Sell Half Of Its Stake In His Music Catalog For Almost $1 Billion
In news that’ll make you stand on your toes and scream “HEE-HEE!” Michael Jackson‘s lengthy music catalog is about to be sold for a whole lot of money. Now, whether or not that means any of this cash will go to his children has yet to be determined. But I’m sure Detective La Toya will find a way for her family to get their hands on some of that cash, which could bring in anywhere between $800 million to $900 million. If there was ever a time for Michael to rise from the grave and dance his way to the bank with the rest of the zombies from Thriller, this is it, I guess.
Deadline reports that director Antoine Fuqua has signed on to direct Michael, an upcoming movie about the extremely fucked up life of Michael Jackson. The question is, what kind of biopic will this be? A (truly) white-washed “he was the King of Pop!” version? Or a no-holds-barred portrait of a guy who (allegedly) did some really horrible shit? Sources tell Deadline that Michael will “deal squarely” with the pedophile accusations, but I’m not expecting much. After all, this shit is co-produced by the executors of Michael’s estate. And those guys weren’t exactly fans of HBO’s documentary Leaving Neverland.
The 2021 Tony Awards were as novel as the COVID-19 coronavirus which resulted in a truncated season that left Moulin Rouge star Aaron Tveit as the only actor nominated in his category. *Spoiler alert* He won. But this year, Broadway told that bitch Rona, “we’ll do it live, fuck it!” and came back swinging for the 2022 season. Today, the Tony Award nominations were announced, and sadly, Neil Patrick Harris was snubbed for his role in Inside Inside Edition: The Bill O’Reilly Story: The Musical. But that’s probably because A Strange Loop, the Pulitzer-Prize winning musical by Michael R. Jackson, that has an entire number devoted to reading Tyler Perry for filth, gobbled up 11 nominations including Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Book of a Musical, Best Performance in a leading role for newcomer Jaquel Spivey and Best Performance in a Featured role for John-Andrew Morrison. So really, Madea should be on her hands and knees thanking Michael R. for getting her as close to a Tony Award, and a Pulitzer, as she’ll ever get.
Aaron Carter, father. Words I never thought I’d be typing. Aaron Carter being a father to a human baby is bizarre enough. But let’s make it just a bit weirder, shall we? The baby has been named Prince, and named was picked in honor of Michael Jackson.
HotNewHipHop says that Drake is getting heat for a new song of his which features a Michael Jackson reference. You’d think people would avoid such a thing considering the way a reference of Michael has shifted from positive to quite negative over the years. Well he’s taking those child abuse allegations and turning them into Top 40 rap music, honey! Which is a good look for him considering how often Drake himself texts with teenage girls.
Macaulay Culkin Still Insists Nothing Happened Between Him And Michael Jackson, And Adds That James Franco Is A Nosy Pest
Don’t feel sorry for Macaulay Culkin, some child stars turn out just fine (eventually), even the ones with supremely shitty parents. While Mack, as he’s known, went through a period of heroin adjacent tabloid drama, he now spends his days positively chilling, according to a recent Esquire profile. He barely works (BY CHOICE!), and spends his time goofing on the internet, smoking cigarettes, chilling with his cats and “keeping his lady fed” which is not a euphemism for butt stuff. The lady in question is his girlfriend, fellow former child actor Brenda Song (The Suite Life of Zach & Cody), and Mack says they are trying for a baby. A real one this time! In the interview, Mack (I hate it so much, but he insists) also talked a little bit about his relationship with Michael Jackson, reiterating that nothing sexual ever happened between them. More delightfully, Mack talked about the time he dunked on James Franco for getting nosy with him on an airplane.
