Paris Jackson On Michael Jackson

1. I just want to say ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you can ever imagine, and I just want to say I love him so much.

2. (on Michael Jackson covering her face as a child) I was really confused. I didn't get why I was wearing a mask, but I understand it now why my dad would want our face to be covered. When we went out without him we wouldn't be recognized and we could have a normal childhood.

3. (on living with Michael Jackson) Now I see other kids and their parents and I compare them to my dad. Our dad was a really normal father when he was with us. We would get grounded if we did something bad, but he wouldn't call it grounding. He'd just say "you're on punishment." Sometimes we'd be on punishment a lot. Mostly me and Blanket because we'd always fight.

4. I have lots of memories of my father. He was an incredible father. We all loved him to death. He'd try to educate us as much as he could and was always looking out for us. He was very protective.

Michael Jackson and Mark Wahlberg: 9/11 Plane Story Is Not True !

It has been an amazing story: Michael Jackson and Mark Wahlberg fighting over a private plane in the days after 9/11! But according to sources close to Wahlberg: It's just no true...  

A new book, entitled "Untouchable," recounts the tale of Michael Jackson and
Mark Wahlberg both jockeying for a Sony private jet. The book claims that Sony finally let Michael Jackson have it.

But sources close to Wahlberg revealed to celebrity website TMZ the whole thing is a work of fiction. Mark had no need for a plane from Sony to fly back to Los Angeles because he had his own.

It sounded too good to be true, eh?

MJ Estate And Paul Anka Lawsuit Over "This Is It"

A music producer reveals he's owed at least $24 million for his work on the Paul Anka/Michael Jackson collaboration "This Is it".  Now, he's filing a lawsuit against Anka and the MJ Estate for the money.

In detail, the producer - named Michael Jonzun - filed the lawsuit in Massachusetts federal court, stating he helped remake Paul and MJ's 1983 song "I Never Heard" into what eventually became MJ's 2009 song "This Is It."

According to the lawsuit, Jonzun owns one-third of "This Is It" but he never got paid his share of the song's proceeds. 

Paul Anka told celebrity website TMZ, he has never even heard the name Michael Jonzun before today and any claims Jonzun owns a portion of "This Is It" are "BS"

43. In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.

44. I wake up from dreams and go "Wow, put this down on paper." The whole thing is strange. You hear the words, everything is right there in front of your face . . .

49. Smooth, but not a criminal.

50. I am bewildered at the length to which people will go to portray me so negatively.

52. Sorry, guys. I'm under the gag order.

53. I believe in my heart that the music community will come together as one and rally to the aid of thousands of innocent victims, ... There is a tremendous need for relief dollars right now and through this effort each one of us can play an immediate role in helping comfort so many people.

54. I have always maintained my innocence, and vehemently denied that these events ever took place. I reluctantly chose to settle the false claims only to end the terrible publicity and to continue with my life and career.

55. There's a Mother's Day and there's a Father's Day, but there's no Children's Day. It would mean a lot. World peace.

56. Hope is such a beautiful word, but it often seems very fragile. Life is still being needlessly hurt and destroyed.

57. People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.

 58. To live is to be musical, starting with the blood dancing in your veins. Everything living has a rhythm. Do you feel your music?

59. When children listen to music, they don't just listen. They melt into the melody and flow with the rhythm. Something inside starts to unfold its wings - soon the child and the music are one. 

60. Sometimes the heart is so heavy that we turn away from it and forget that its throbbing is the wisest message of life, a wordless message that says: "Live, be, move, rejoice - you are alive!" Without the heart's wise rhythm, we could not exist.

61. Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the creator. Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on. On many an occasion when I am dancing, I have felt touched by something sacred. In those moments, I felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists.

62. I become the stars and the moon. I become the lover and the beloved. I become thevictor and the vanquished. I become the master and the slave. I become the singer and the song. I become the knower and the known. I keep on dancing then it is the eternal dance or creation. The creator and creation merge into one wholeness of joy. I keep on dancing...and dancing...and dancing. Until there is only...the dance.

63. All of us are products of our childhood.

64. In their innocence, very young children know themselves to be light and love. If we will allow them, they can teach us to see ourselves the same way. 

65. When I step out on stage in front of thousands of people, I don't feel that I'm being brave. It can take much more courage to express true feelings to one person. (...) In spite of the risks, the courage to be honest and intimate opens the way to self-discovery. It offers what we all want, the promise of love. 

66. A star can never die. It just turns into a smile and melts back into the cosmic music, the dance of life.

67. To give someone a piece of your heart, is worth more than all the wealth in the world.

68. But for me the sweetest contact with God has no form. I close my eyes, look within, and enter a deep soft silence. The infinity of God's creation embraces me. 

69. They say that parenting is like dancing. You take one step, your child takes another. 

70. And that's what innocence is. It's simple and trusting like a child, not judgmental and committed to one narrow point of view. If you are locked into a pattern of thinking and responding, your creativity gets blocked. You miss the freshness and magic of the moment. Learn to be innocent again, and that freshness never fades.

71. Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?

72. We look high and low for God, but somehow He's not there. So we blame Him and tell ourselves that He must have forgotten us. Or else we decide that He left us long ago, if He was ever around."
"How strange," the little fish said, "to miss what is everywhere."
"Very strange," the old whale agreed. "Doesn't it remind you of fish who say they're thirsty?”

73. I'm going to search for my star until I find it. It's hidden in the drawer of innocence, wrapped in a scarf of wonder.

74. I love to read. I wish I could advise more people to read. There’s a whole new world in books. If you can’t afford to travel, you travel mentally through reading. You can see anything and go any place you want to in reading.

75. Human knowledge consists not only of libraries of parchment and ink - it is also comprised of the volumes of knowledge that are written on the human heart, chiselled on the human soul, and engraved on the human psyche.  

76. Before you judge me , try hard to love me , look within your heart, then ask :  have you seen my childhood ? 

77. I trembled to think of a world without stars. No guide for the sailor to trust at see, no jewels to dazzle our sense of beauty (...) But all around the globe, the air is so dirty and the lights from the cities are so bright that for some people few stars can be seen anymore. A generation of children may grow up seeing a blank sky and asking:"Did there used to be stars there?”

78. When all life is seen as divine, everyone grows wings. 

79. "The Wizard Of Oz" has secrets that are just too much. Or "Peter Pan" - the whole "lost boys" thing is just incredible. They’re not childlike at all, they’re really, really deep; you can rule your life by them. Or say "child-like", because children are the most brilliant people of all, that’s why they relate to those stories so well. Fairy-tales are wonderful.

80. Please go for your dreams. Whatever your ideals, you can become whatever you want to become.

81. I believe I'm one of the loneliest people in the world.

82. All the things I've read in my school books about England and the Queen were okay, but my eyes are the greatest book in the world.

83. I wrote a book called "Dancing The Dream". It was more autobiographical than Moonwalk, which I did with Mrs. Onassis. It wasn’t full of gossip and scandal and all that trash that people write, so I don’t think people paid much attention to it, but it came from my heart. It was essays, thoughts and things that I’ve thought about while on tour.

84. You can't hurt me, I found peace within myself. 

85. There’s a whole psychological reason for those cartoons about good against evil. We have "Superman" and all those other hero people, so that we can go out into life and try to be something. I’ve got most of Disney’s animated movies on video-tapes, and when we watch them. Oh, I could just eat it, eat it. (…) Jimmy Cricket, Pinocchio, Mickey Mouse – these are world-known characters. Some of the greatest political figures have come to the United States to meet them.

86. I love E. T. 'cos it reminds me of me. Someone from another world coming down and you becoming friends with them and this person is, like, 800 years old and he's filling you with all kinds of wisdom and he can teach you to fly. That whole fantasy thing which I think is great. I mean, who don't wanna fly?

87. My father was a management genius. But what I really wanted was a dad.

88. I wrote a song called Dirty Diana. It was not about Lady Diana. It was about a certain kind of girls that hang around concerts or clubs, you know, they call them "groupies".

89. Our parents taught us to always be respectful and, no matter what you do, to give it everything you have. Be the best, not the second best.

90. When you just look out over the stage, as far as the naked eye could see, you see people. And it’s a wonderful feeling, but it came with a lot of pain, a lot of pain.

91. They used to call me a 45-year-old midget wherever I went.

92. No, I've never taken hormones to maintain my high voice! No, I've never had my cheekbones altered in any way! No, I've never had cosmetic surgery on my eyes!

93. He was very strict, very hard, very stern. Just a look would scare you. (On his father whom he also said beat him, Oprah Winfrey interview 1993.)

94. The press has made up so much...God...awful, horrifying has made me realize the more often you hear a lie, I mean, you begin to believe it..

95. I'm trying to imitate Jesus in the fact that he said to be like children, to love children, to be as pure as children and to make yourself as innocent and to see the world through eyes of wonderment and the whole magical quality of it all.

96. I'll always be Peter Pan in my heart.

97. People think they know me, but they don't. Not really. Actually, I am one of the loneliest people on this earth. I cry sometimes, because it hurts. It does. To be honest, I guess you could say that it hurts to be me.

Katherine Jackson, Michael Jackson's Mother, Reported Missing !

According to reports, Katherine Jackson has been reported missing to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department after her grandchildren, Paris, Prince, and Blanket were unable to reach her all week.

"I can confirm that a missing person's report was filed this evening by Mrs. Katherine Jackson's nephew, Trent Jackson, after he was unable to see her or reach her for a week. The report will be referred to the Homicide/Missing Persons Unit, and they will be handling the investigation," Lt. Josh Thai claimed.

A source close to the situation stated: "The kids are being taken care of by their nanny. Paris is absolutely beside herself with worry. She lost her father three years ago, and not to know if her grandmother is ok is just more than she can bear."

It has to be mentioned that Katherine Jackson was blindsided by news a letter had been written by several of her children to the executors of Michael's estate, demanding their resignation. The letter, allegedly from Janet, Rebie, Tito, Randy, and Jermaine, demanded that executors John Branca and John McClain resign immediately because they (the Jackson siblings) believe that the late singer's will was a fake.

This comes after three failed legal challenges in the matter already. The letter also alleged that Katherine Jackson was in bad health and had recently suffered a mini-stroke. Katherine's lawyer told CNN she is in good health and did not suffer a mini-stroke.

Katherine's attorney Sandra Ribera told CNN that Katherine left her Calabasas, California, home on July 15, to fly to Albuquerque, New Mexico to attend a Jackson Brothers concert two days later.

Her grandchildren, who have lived with her since Michael's death, have been trying to reach her ever since.

"The kids were trying to get a hold of their grandmother and they haven't been able to reach her for almost a week," Ribera told CNN. "They are told she's unavailable. I'm concerned that she's not safe."

Katherine's lawyer went on to reveal that she has never gone 24 hours without talking to the children.

It has to be noted that Paris Jackson wrote on twitter: "
if anybody sees my grandmother , please call the authorities or this number— (818)-876-0186 it's the security number .. thank you so much"

Let's all pray for Katherine Jackson to be found as soon as possible!!!

Michael Jackson Tribute: Beyonce's Letter To Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson died over three years ago, but his influence on the Entertainment industry is still felt.  

On June 26, one day after the official anniversary of his death,  Beyonce took to her website to express how much his music has influenced her as an artist.

"When I was just starting out, my first producer used to make me listen to Michael Jackson’s live performance of "Who’s Loving You." He would have me watch that for hours back to back to back. What he wanted me to learn was was his soul. You could hear his soul. And he was this little kid who hadn’t experienced love but he was a vessel. For whatever reason he could evoke more emotion than an adult. It was so raw and so pure. It was these little things that he did that were just swag It’s something that’s God given," Beyonce wrote.

"Michael taught me that sometimes you have to forget technique, forget what you have on. If you feel silly, you have to go from the gut and just let it go. Michael Jackson changed me, and helped me to become the artist I am – Thank you Michael." Beyonce added.

There will never be another Michael Jackson. He is still a legend and he will live in our hearts forever!

Michael Jackson Estate Sued For $1 Billion In Bogus Lawsuit !

Michael Jackson owes a convicted criminal $1 billion for exploiting personal information about her life in his music according to a bizarre and undoubtedly bogus lawsuit.

In detail, Kimberly Griggs filed the case in San Diego, claiming she and Jackson had an intimate relationship beginning in 1979, which she states he chronicled in his albums "Off the Wall," "Thriller," "Bad," "Dangerous," and his greatest hits album "Number Ones."

Griggs, who spent years in prison for burglary and robbery,  reveals she was pissed that Michael exposed her personal secrets in his tunes, so to make things nice he promised to give her the rights to the songs.

Griggs insists she was stunned when Michael Jackson passed away and she was completely left out of his estate.

According to the handwritten lawsuit, Griggs wants $1 billion in damages.

What do you think of it?

Griggs waited for so long to file a lawsuit. The question is: "Why didn't she file a lawsuit when Michael was alive?" It's obvious that now Michael can't defend himself...

Michael Jackson's Death House Finally Attracted A Buyer !

The house where The King of Pop passed away, a house that the owner has been trying to sell for 3 years, finally has attracted a buyer, but it's not a done deal yet.

Real estate sources reveal that an L.A. businessman has written an offer for around $17 million for the Holmby Hills estate. The problem is that Michael Jackson's house is listed for $23.9 million, so the buyer and seller are in the process of negotiating to see if they can find a middle ground.

It has to be noted that the businessman who made the offer "couldn't care less" that Michael Jackson lived and died there.  He just likes the house !

The owner has had problems selling the house in the past, partly because it has been overrun by tourists eager to sneak a peek.

Just for the record, Mauricio Umansky has the listing on the house.  He's married to "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kyle Richards.  Mauricio is having a good week. One of his listings just closed today and it broke a record for prices on Sunset Blvd: $35 million !

That sounds nice, eh?

Michael Jackson's Desperate Letter To Lisa Marie Presley On Sale !

It has always been well known that The King of Pop was leading a traumatic existence before his death.

But a newly released letter to his ex wife Lisa Marie Presley casts even more light on how he was struggling with the pressures of being one of the world's favourite celebrities.

Michael Jackson revealed that he had not slept for days and needed to "take care of my health first" in the document, which has been put up for auction.

In a schoolchild-style scrawl, Michael wrote: "I truly need this rest. I haven't slept literally in four days now. I need to be away from phones and business people. I must take care of my health first".

It has to be noted that Michael also told his lover he was "crazy'" for her and signed off under his pet name "Turd".

Readers are given a sense of the warmth between the couple during their marriage, which lasted from 1994 to 1996, from the letter.

It has to be mentioned that the highly personal message is predicted to fetch up to $1,200 when it goes under the hammer at the "Julien's Auctions" sale in Beverly Hills next month.
