Is Brandon Howard The Son Of Michael Jackson?

1797392_680253612016687_1648488902_n

According to TMZ, up and coming singer Brandon Howard might be Michael Jackson‘s long lost son.

Howard, 31, who has previously been called the “reincarnation” of the King of Pop, is reportedly the son of Jackson. The news was revealed during a live press conference broadcast on FilmOn.com attended by the doctor who gathered the DNA.

According to the test results, there is a 99.9% chance that Howard is in fact Jackson’s son. However, TMZ appears skeptical of the results as they were provided by Alkiviades “Alki” David and his production company, FilmOn. Although, Jackson’s good friend Corey Feldman was involved in announcing the DNA results.

Howard spoke out about the reports in a video posted to his official Facebook page.

“Number one, I did not call TMZ or anything like that. Didn’t put out a story, nothing,” he shared. “Number two, I’ve never self-proclaimed to be Michael Jackson’s son. Number three, I’m definitely not suing the estate. I’ve been taken care of very well. Number four, it is true I did do a DNA test but it had nothing to do with any of this.”

Brandon’s mother is Miki Howard, a gospel singer who toured with Jackson.

According to reports, Brandon was born one year before Jackson wrote and released his hit song, Billie Jean. Miki supposedly went by the nickname “Billy.”

Interestingly, Jackson released his hit song Billie Jean one year after Howard’s birth, which included the lyrics, “Billie Jean’s not my lover,” and, “The kid is not my son.”

Check out a video of Jackson’s alleged son – who professionally goes by the name B. Howard – singing below and judge for yourself:

Katherine Jackson Disappointed By AEG Not Being Held Liable For Michael Jackson’s Death – “She Is Doing The Best She Can”

Michael Jackson Court Case

We feel for Katherine and the kids.

Katherine Jackson Disappointed Over AEG Verdict

The jury ruling AEG had no liability in Michael’s death has many fans upset…where is the justice?

Katherine Jackson is a “strong woman” who won’t just beat it after losing her bid to collect $1.5 billion in damages from the King of Pop’s last concert promoter, her lawyer said Thursday.

“She’s obviously disappointed, but she’s a very strong woman,” lead plaintiff’s lawyer Brian Panish told the Daily News in an exclusive interview Thursday.

“She’s been through a lot in life, and she’s doing the best she can. She only wants what is best for Michael’s children, who are her No. 1 priority.”

He said the five-month wrongful death trial was “a search for the truth” that likely didn’t end with Wednesday’s verdict.

“There’s going to be more to this story. I don’t think it’s over yet,” Panish said. “We’re not giving up all hope yet.”

He said Katherine, 83, was heartened by the jury’s unanimous vote that AEG Live did in fact hire Dr. Conrad Murray.
AEG Live argued during the trial that it was Michael who hired the doctor now serving four years for providing the anesthetic propofol that killed him in his bedroom on June 25, 2009.

“AEG denied it all along, but the truth was that AEG hired the doctor who killed Michael Jackson,” Panish said.
He declined to give specifics on how he might file an appeal, but said he believes the wording of the verdict form question that decided the case in AEG’s favor was possibly faulty.

Good thing she is being strong.

The form had 16 questions total. But jurors were instructed to stop at the second question and award no damages if at least nine jurors voted “no” on the query, “Was Dr. Conrad Murray unfit or incompetent to perform the work for which he was hired?”

Jurors who spoke after the verdict said Murray was qualified to act as Michael’s general practitioner — not an anesthesiologist — at the time of his hiring.

“Conrad Murray had a license, he graduated from an accredited college, and we felt he was competent to do the job of being a general practitioner,” said jury foreman Gregg Barden.

“Now that doesn’t mean that we thought he was ethical. Had the word ‘ethical’ been in the question, it could have been a different outcome.”

Panish also said some jurors expressed annoyance over the length of the trial that started last April — possibly leading to a bias against Katherine as the plaintiff.

“They were upset about how long it took. They told the judge that in her chambers,” he said, referring to a 20-minute closed-door session the judge held with the jurors and lawyers for both parties after the verdict.

Katherine was “taking a break” Thursday and not giving any direct media interviews, her personal lawyer Perry Sanders told The News.

He released a statement on her behalf late Wednesday that slammed AEG for repeatedly calling Katherine’s lawsuit “a shakedown.”

“Such a statement is a slap in the face of the entire judicial system that allowed this case to get to a jury,” the statement said.

First, this verdict and then Conrad Murray is scheduled to be released soon? The Jackson family is going through a lot.

GTFOHWTBS: AEG CEO Randy Phillips Testifes He Spoke To Michael Jackson’s Ghost,”It Wasn’t Dr. Conrad Murray’s Fault”

Michael is turning over in his grave as we speak.

Come on now, his ghost? If Michael’s ghost could say anything it would be to get his children away from his money grubbing family.

Michael Jackson’s Ghost Testifies At Trial

According The NY Post

Jurors at the Jacko trial heard testimony from a surprise witness yesterday — the ghost of Michael Jackson!

Randy Phillips, CEO of concert promoter AEG Live, testified about a chat he had with his longtime friend Brenda Richie, who claimed to have talked to a medium who had channeled the spirit of The Gloved One after his 2009 death.

In the supernatural tête-á-tête, Jacko’s ghost allegedly absolved Dr. Conrad Murray of any guilt in his death and admitted he “accidentally killed himself,” Phillips said.

“Brenda called me to tell me that she was in communications with Michael either through a medium or directly,” Phillips told jurors about his talk with Richie, the ex-wife of singer Lionel Richie.

“She said Michael told her that it wasn’t Dr. Murray’s fault, that he had accidentally killed himself.”
Brian Panish, a lawyer for Michael Jackson’s family, objected to Phillips’ ghost story, calling it triple hearsay, since Phillips was relaying a chat from Richie, who had heard from a medium, who — allegedly — spoke to a dead Jacko.

Remarkably — over the laughter of courtroom spectators — LA County Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos allowed Phillips’ explanation to stand.

We hope for the children’s sake this trial ends soon and in their favor.

Rihanna Gets Thug Life Tattoo and a Shhhh…

Sometimes you see a tattoo and think to yourself, “What were they thinking?”  Apparently Rihanna was thinking of paying tribute to the late rapper, Tupac Shakur.  I get it.  What I don’t get is why across your knuckles?  I think tattoos are sexy if done tastefully and if they are an extension of who you are…Thug Life across your knuckles Rihanna?  Again, I don’t get it.  I do love the “Shhhh…” tattoo.

Speaking of stupid, Chris Brown also has a slew of ridiculous tats,  like the happy face on his back and the rest of the garbage he’s got randomly inked across his chest and arms.  How does this guy even still have a career?  I don’t care what you say, he’s nothing more than a Michael Jackson wanna be who likes to hit girls.

Anyways back to Rihanna,  I hope you enjoy your knuckle tattoos when you’re 60.  Just sayin.  Ok, well I hope you enjoy her tats in the gallery below along with a few other stupid tattoos I found.

The Weirdest Celebrity Baby Names!

Celebrities are known for giving their babies bizarre names, and just recently Beyoncé and Jay-Z continued the trend. As we all know they named their kid, “Blue Ivy” which sounds more like a bar of soap. But, they are not the worst offenders; I have looked back and found some really horrible celebrity baby names. “Pilot Inspektor” Yeah, actor Jason Lee named his kid, “Pilot” are you freaking kidding me? Is the next kid going to be named, “Co-Pilot?” I mean, where does the madness stop? That poor kid. “Apple” What a fruity name, huh? Gwyneth Paltrow named her kid APPLE! That just doesn’t make any sense. What could possibly make you want to name your kid apple? Do you know how confusing that is going to be? What if the kid is at school and hears, “Apple” and the kid turns around, only to find out they were talking about an actual apple! You don’t make your kid’s name edible! “Memphis Eve” Only Bono could think of such a horrible douchey name. It’s bad enough having to be the child of Bono, but now you have to deal with that name, too? Life is just not fair. “Blanket” Why not? We have a freaking apple on the list, why not add a blanket? As most of you know Michael Jackson named his kid Blanket. If we ever find a kid named, “Snuggie” I think it would be safe to assume it is Michael’s long lost child. “Tu Morrow” Are you serious? Actor, ‘Rob Morrow’ named his kid Tu Morrow…just think about that for a minute. Do you get it, yet? He just punned the hell out of his baby’s name! There has to be some sort of law against that, arrest that man! “Moxie Crimefighter” What kind of crime is Moxie fighting? The crime of parents giving their kids horrible names? Moxie Crimefighter? What were you thinking, Penn Jillette? Teller could have come up with a better name, and he doesn’t even talk!
 

Tuesday’s Miscellaneous Junk You Might Like — 1/10/12

Hello there, my junkie friends! I’m back for the third time with the Miscellaneous Junk You Might Like! So… let the fun begin!!! Dr. Conrad Murray, as we all know, was found guilty for causing the legend Michael Jackson’s death because it was he who prescribed the medication Propofol to the star. Now, Dr. Murray is basically being sued in a civil court by MJ’s fam for $100 million dollars. But, Dr. Murray is saying that he may have prescribed lethal meds to Michael, but it was Michael himself who administered the medication and therefore MJ is responsible for his own death. You know what? I agree. Just because a celebrity is a celebrity and they get whatever they want from whoever they want doesn’t make them any less responsible for their own actions. That Dr. was WRONG, but in the end, it was Michael who was responsible for his own actions — that’s what being an adult is all about. Enough with the heavy… So, do you guys remember that mega WWE star named Stone Cold Steve Austin? Yes, I figured you would. Well, those who are WWE fans — and even those who aren’t — will remember his saying ‘Austin 3:16 says I just whooped your ass!’ Well, TMZ caught up to Stone Cold and asked him if he would consider relinquishing his hold over the numbers to Tim Tebow. After finding out that Tebow threw a … miraculous… 316 yards in this last game, Stone Cold said that he would gladly give them up… if Tebow could do it again. Wow… so now, 3:16 isn’t associated with its original place, but with the saying of a WWE wrestler and now a football player?! Okay… I’m not going there… Baby Blue Ivy has been taken home! Beyonce and Jay-Z took their multi-million dollar bundle of joy to their multi-million dollar Manhattan apartment. Something you may not have known? At least part — or even most of — that million dollars was spent on renovation to the hospital itself! This included a swanky — and of course, private — recovery area, as well as a damn bulletproof door for Beyonce’s room!!! All of this for a three day stay! Wow… Kelly Rowland, former member of the Beyonce led group Destiny’s Child, stopped by the Lucky Wang baby boutique. For what exactly? To buy baby Blue Ivy a green Bob Marley onezie of course. That. is. just. stupid! You wanna know the really sad thing? I bet that scrap of material probably cost her — not just one — but a couple pretty pennies. As my friend and fellow Daily Fix author, Zachary Row reported to you all a few days ago, Russell Brand was Banned from the People’s Choice Awards. Why? Because, they didn’t want Katy Perry to feel uncomfortable around her estranged husband. Yeah… like that building’s not big enough for the two of them. But, no worries now, because Katy Perry has announced that she won’t even [...]
 

Monday’s Miscellaneous Junk You Might Like — 1/9/12

Hello there, my fellow celeb junkies! Thank you so much for coming back for the second edition of the new Miscellaneous posts! Don’t forget… always drop us a comment and let us know what posts you like and which one’s you don’t! And, without further blah blah blah, here’s Monday’s Miscellaneous Junk You Might Like!!! Well, as I reported a few days ago, rumors were flying that Ryan Seacrest was going to get the boot from American Idol because they simply couldn’t come to an agreement for his new contract. Seacrest’s three year $45 million dollar contract is coming to an end, and both sides are playing hard ball. But, to dispell the rumors, Seacrest — along with the judges of AI — and executive producers made an appearance together at the Television Critics Association 2012 Winter Tour. Both Seacrest and execs said that they wanted Ryan to host, but it has been a ‘tough negotiation.’ And even though they seemed to make a united front… how many times have we seen this happen? What immediately comes to mind is, ‘Oh, no. Of course we’re not getting a divorce.’ Then… three days later we see some papers. So, even though they’re playing nice for the camera’s, I wouldn’t bank on it either way. Previously unreleased lyrics by Michael Jackson are to be auctioned off for at least four G’s by his friend and dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein — who has recently filed bankruptcy. The lyrics, written in black pen on white paper by the legend himself, are a mere eight and a half lines. Wow… Anyway, the auction for the poetic lyrics will be in LA on the 23rd of this month. They are heartbreaking and ironic, especially the opening line of ‘Across the sea of time, we shall meet on endless shores, counting our blessings of love’s eternity.’ RIP MJ, for you are missed… Vannesa Paradis, Johnny Depp’s babymomma and girlfriend of fourteen years, was spotted out lookin’ rough as hell! It’s no wonder though, seeing as how rumors are abounding that she and Depp are facing a nasty split. But, I’ve got a question… Did anyone else know she was this ugly?! I mean, THIS is the chick that the sexiest man alive is with? What the hell is up with that? I suppose I’ve never noticed her before because every picture she’s in with Johnny… I’m only looking at Johnny. But… eww… Oh, well, at least it gives the ugly chicks of the world hope that they too could possibly score a grade A stud. Chaz Bono — Cher’s… son — admitted to Rolling Stone magazine that he is saving up for his very own penis! He insists that his mother will not help him with the surgery, because she’s not as comfortable with his change as she pretends to be. Chaz also told Rolling Stone, ‘I’m currently leaning more towards a metoidioplasty… It’s a process that uses what you already have down there, which has grown [...]
 

Conrad Murray found guilty of involuntary manslaughter

A jury found Michael Jackson’s doctor guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of the King of Pop.

Dr. Conrad Murray appeared stone-faced as the verdict was read Monday in a Los Angeles courtroom. The 58-year-old doctor, who is to be sentenced November 29, is facing up to four years in prison. He could also lose his medical license.

Jackson’s sister LaToya screamed out upon hearing the verdict, while his crying mother, Katherine, was consoled by her son, Jermaine Jackson.

Murray’s supporters looked somber over the news, with one shaking her head back and forth, mouthing the word “no.”

Jackson fans who had gathered outside the courtroom burst into applause and cheered as the verdict, “Guilty!,” was announced.

The decision was reached after less than nine hours of deliberation. The prosecution asked for Murray to be remanded into custody immediately. “He is now a convicted felon,” prosecutor David Walgren said.

Defense lawyer Ed Chernoff argued that he is not danger to the community before Murray was escorted out of the courtroom by the Sheriff.

During the trial it was revealed that Murray was also a deadbeat dad and a compulsive womaniser.

Desperate for cash to pay his mounting debts, Murray took the lucrative post injecting Jackson – no questions asked – with nightly doses of the knock-out sleep drug that ultimately killed him.

Murray’s $1.2m Las Vegas mansion was about to be repossessed after he fell $96,000 behind with the mortgage in 2009 when Jackson asked him to travel to London with him as his full-time physician, official documents reveal.

His two medical practices in Nevada and Texas faced $631,000 in court judgments and he was late paying a $64,000 personal loan and thousands of dollars in child support.His spiraling debts were the reason Murray demanded $4.8m from Jackson when he was first offered the job, said friends. He later settled for $160,000-a-month.

Murray, who is married, has fathered at least seven children with six women, most of them out of wedlock.

According to court records, he has also been sued more than a dozen times for claims including breach of contract and unpaid child support.

In April, 2009, Murray was sentenced to 10 days in jail for non-payment of child support and was ordered to spend 25 days behind bars for the same reason in 2007. On both occasions, he eventually paid up to avoid going to prison.

He was also arrested twice on charges brought by former girlfriends, once for fraudulent breach of trust and once for domestic violence, although he was never convicted.

Michael Jackson’s corpse shown to jury as an opening to Conrad Murray’s trial

 

The highly anticipated trial into the death of Michael Jackson opened with an extraordinary moment yesterday afternoon as the prosecutor started his opening remarks by displaying a photo of the singer’s dead body.

As Conrad Murray appeared before the jury charged with involuntary manslaughter over Jackson’s death more than two years ago, deputy district attorney David Walgren displayed the picture that appeared to show tape or tubing over Jackson’s face.

The hearing became like a circus, as opposing fans of the King of Pop and supporters of Dr Murray gathered outside the courthouse in Los Angeles waving placards and banners as the whole Jackson family made their way into court for what has been billed as the trial of the century.

Below is an account of what happened in the court room:

Later, the prosecution played a tape of a healthy-looking Jackson giving his last ever performance – a rehearsal of his hit Earth Song – recorded a day before he died.

The lights in the courtroom were turned off and the singer was shown on a screen performing Earth Song at rehearsals at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, just hours before he passed away.

Jackson’s mother appeared to be in tears watching the clip.

‘Michael Jackson’s death was a homicide,’ Los Angeles deputy district attorney David Walgren told the jury in opening statements.

‘The evidence will show that Michael Jackson literally put his life in the hands of Conrad Murray… Michael Jackson trusted his life to the medical skills of Conrad Murray.

But Dr Murray’s defence attorney Ed Chernoff told the jury that Michael Jackson caused his own death.

Dr Murray wiped tears from his eyes as Mr Chernoff said that the evidence will show that the singer swallowed 8, 2 mg pills of Lorazepam and injected himself with a dose of propofol.

This ‘created a perfect storm in his body that killed him instantly,’ Mr Chernoff said.

Mr Chernoff said that Jackson, who was frustrated because he could not sleep and frustrated because his doctor refused to give him a drug that he wanted, ‘did an act that caused his own death’

‘He died so fast he did not even have time to close his eyes.’ Mr Chernoff said.

Murray ‘repeatedly acted with gross negilience, repeatedly denied appropriate care to his patient Michael Jackson and that is was Dr Murray’s repeated incompetent and unskilled acts that led to Michael Jackson’s death on June 25 2009,’ said the prosecution.

The prosecutor played disturbing audio recorded on Dr Murray’s iPhone of Jackson apparently under the influence of propofol a month before his death.

On the tape, Jackson sounded slurred and confused as he mumbled: ‘We have to be phenomenal… When people leave this show, when people leave my show, I want them to say, “I’ve never seen nothing like this in my life. Go. Go.”‘

Mr Walgren said the audio was evidence that Dr Murray knew what was happening to Jackson and should have discontinued ordering propofol.

Mr Walgren attempted to paint a picture of the days leading up to the singer’s death.

On June 19th ‘Michael showed up for his rehearsal and he was not in good shape, he was not in good shape at all,’ Mr Walgren said.

‘He had chills, he was trembling… he was rambling.’

Kenny Ortega, the manager of Jackson’s proposed This Is It tour, expressed concerns about Jackson, but Dr Murray allegedly told him and others that Jackson was ‘physically and emotionally fine’.

‘Don’t let it be your concern, I am the doctor,’ Dr Murray allegedly said.

The prosecutor also laid out the order of events from inside Jackson’s house on the night that he died.

Mr Walgren accused Dr Murray of failing to call 911 as soon as he realised that there was something wrong with Jackson.

He said that an emergency call was not made until 12:20pm, at least 24 minutes after Dr Murray is believed to have discovered Jackson unconscious.

The prosecutors claimed that phone records showed that Jackson was left unattended for too long.

‘It will be clear that Conrad Murray abandoned Michael when he needed help,’ Mr Walgren said.

‘It was Conrad Murray’s gross negligence, it was Conrad Murray’s unskilled hands and his desire to obtain this lucrative contract of $150,000 a month that led Dr. Murray to not only abandon his patient, but to abandon all principles of medical care.’

Mr Walgren also showed images of Jackson’s bedroom to show how medical monitoring devices typically used when someone is under anesthesia were not there or appeared unused.

A blood pressure cuff was still in a box and an oxygen tank had no oxygen, Mr Walgren said.

But as the defence made their opening statements, Murray wiped away tears as Mr Chernoff described the doctor and Jackson as ‘friends first’.

‘Dr Murray is no celebrity doctor. He is a cardiologist. He literally saves lives. That’s who he is,’ Mr Chernoff said.

He said that on the day he died, Jackson had told Murray that he not slept for 10 hours and that if he did not sleep he would not be able to rehearse and would disappoint his fans.

Dr Murray agreed to give him a 25 mg injection of propofol mixed with lidocaine.

Mr Chernoff said that such a small dose would ‘dissipate in ten minutes’.

He said that the amount found in Jackson’s body, more than 100 mgs, was consistent with major invasive surgery and was administered by Jackson himself.

Jackson ‘self-administered an additional dose of propofol and it killed him like that, there was no way to save him,’ said Mr Chernoff.

His death was a tragedy, he added, but Murray is not responsible. Murray is ‘not perfect… but in this criminal court, we believe he is not guilty,’ he added.

Michael Jackson’s glove more precious than Albert Einstein’s brain!

jacko bad gloves
It was Michael Jackson magic at full force at the Icons and Idols auction, organized by Julien’s Auctions, in Beverly Hills on Saturday. A single-studded glove worn by the late King of pop on his “Bad” tour in the late 1980’s sold for $330,000, whereas an X-ray of Albert Einstein’s brain managed to command a meagerly sum of $38,750.

According to Contactmusic,

The items, a fedora which sold for $72,000 and a glove which reached $330,000, were part of the star’s wardrobe for his ‘Bad’ tour in 1980s and were sold through Julien’s Auctions as part of their ‘Icons and Idols’ sale. A jacket signed by the ‘Thriller’ hitmaker - who died from acute Propofol intoxication aged 50 in June 2009 - was bought for $96,000.

While the Michael Jackson collection - featuring over 100 items from the star’s life and career including a custom-made costume for his friend and companion Bubbles the chimp - took centre stage at the auction in Beverly Hills, a number of other items generated huge interest at the sale. Late Beatles legend John Lennon’s gold-braided military jacket - made famous in an iconic 1966 Life magazine photo shoot - reached $240,000, exceeding its estimated word of $150,000 and $200,000. An X-ray of Albert Einstein’s brain went for $38,750, while a pair of Marilyn Monroe’s empty prescription bottles, sold for $18,750.

Michael Jackson’s Kids To Be Called As Witnesses In Doc’s Trial

After all they've been through, it looks like Michael Jackson's kids are going to be thrown into yet another stressful situation – RadarOnline is reporting that Conrad Murray, the doctor on trial for manslaughter in the death of the pop legend, plans to use Prince, 13, and Paris, 12, as witnesses for the defense.

According to reports, the children will be questioned about specific statements supposedly made soon after Michael's death and the defense hopes they will admit their father had long-standing drug addictions.

 

Joe Jackson: ‘Spankings Kept Michael Out Of Gangs’

Joe Jackson, the father of the late King Of Pop Michael Jackson is speaking out to those who have criticized his parenting "style" while raising his children.

In an interview via TMZ, which was reportedly filmed as part of a documentary being made by family matriarch Katherine Jackson, Joe defended his use of physical abuse,

I had to be like that because when raising him, in those days, so many gangs out there getting into trouble, going to jail. Most of them are dead now. He didn't have to worry about that."

When questioned about regretting abusing his son, Joe said, "No! They tried to make a big issue when I spanked Michael or some of the kids, ya know? Just like they didn't spank their kids when they did wrong. The media twists everything."

Joe Jackson first admitted to abusing his children in 2003, saying that he did not "beat" them, but "whipped" them as he used a belt, not a stick. He and Katherine divorced officially last month after 60 years of marriage.

The KKK Rallied Before LSU And Ole Miss Game…Too Bad No One Was Feelin’ Their Efforts



The Klan tried to pop up over the weekend at Ole-Miss College, looking for support over their protest of the song “From Dixie with Love”:

Wearing traditional red, black and white robes and carrying flags representing the infamous hate group, about 10 hooded members of the Ku Klux Klan protested on the Ole Miss campus Saturday. The protest, held on the steps of Fulton Chapel, fizzled after less than 10 minutes and faced a large counter-protest from students and onlookers.

The Klan traveled to Oxford to protest Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones’ decision to ban the Ole Miss band from playing “From Dixie with Love” because students chanted “the South will rise again” during the melody.

Shane Tate, the North Mississippi great titan for the Mississippi White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, said in an e-mail, that the ban is an attack on free speech and Southern Christian heritage.

Once escorted to the chapel by police, the Klan members were met by a wall of boos from more than 200 spectators who had gathered in front of the chapel to witness the protest.
During most of the brief protest, the Klansmen stood silently waving Confederate and Klan flags on the chapel steps, while constantly receiving jeers from hostile onlookers.

“Go to hell, KKK,” and “Take off your mask, cowards!” the onlookers chanted.

The Klansmen attempted to shout back at the onlookers, but their only audible yells were “the South will rise again” and “white power” chanted in unison with Nazi-like salutes.

Police in riot gear escorted the Klansmen down the hill by the chapel and out of sight after less than ten minutes of protesting.

“This seems so unnecessary,” said LSU biology sophomore Nilay Patel. “Nothing was accomplished by them standing out there in those costumes.”

About 200 students with “turn your back on hate” written on the back of their shirts stood with the message facing the Klan while reading the University of Mississippi creed.

“What we saw with the students and the T-shirts are what Ole Miss is everyday,” said Thomas Reardon, Ole Miss dean of students who witnessed the protests. “The few people who were on the porch of the Fulton Chapel, we don’t know who they are, but we abhor what they stand for. And they do not represent the University of Mississippi.”

Artair Rogers, Ole Miss associated student body president, took part in the counter-protest.

“The [Klan’s rally] was not pointless — they have freedom of speech and the right to express their values,” Rogers said. “But we wanted to come out and show this creed is what we stand for.”

Way to handle that students. Next time, some rocks might be in order!

Father Of Michael Jackson’s “Alleged Sexual Victim” Commits Suicide


The Michael Jackson sexual assault case that settled out of court for millions ‘they say’ was pushed by the alleged victim’s father, Evan Chandler, out of greed and wealth. Evan committed suicide yesterday:

JORDY Chandler’s dad, reportedly killed himself last night – just five months after the death of his son’s alleged sex abuser, Michael Jackson. Evan Chandler was found in bed with a single gunshot wound to his head, cops in New Jersey said. A concierge at the dentist’s luxury waterfront apartment block stumbled onto the horrific scene in Jersey City. The gun was still in the dad’s hand. Mr. Chandler’s suicide – on November 5 but which only emerged last night – was being probed by baffled cops. The 65-year-old – whose son was 13 when he claimed in the early 1990s that Jacko molested him – left no note. His dad’s body was found after he failed to keep an appointment with a doctor – who called the concierge to check on him. Police confirmed: “We have ruled it as suicide because he was found with a gun held to his body.

“He had a single bullet wound to the side of his head. “There was no note but officers did find medication in keeping with a serious medical condition.” Sources said the dad was barely recognizable from how he looked during the 13-month probe, launched by Santa Barbara’s district attorney into the abuse claims. The family also sued Jacko. Bizarrely, the dad had undergone a string of cosmetic surgery operations – mirroring those of the superstar, who died in June at age 50. Jordy, who has always been tight-lipped about his time with Jacko, had fallen out with his parents. Three years ago, he got a restraining order against his father – claiming the dentist attacked him with a dumbbell weight. Despite that, he was recently said to have been patching things up with his mum June, who got divorced from Evan in 1992. Former Santa Barbara County Sheriff Jim Thomas said: “Everybody in this whole saga was touched tragically.” Jordy, now 29, was given a payoff worth millions by the King of Pop to prevent his allegations from emerging in court.

The common theme in Chandler’s and Jackson’s death? Prescription drugs found close by… SMH

Joe Jackson Wants Money From Michael’s Estate


JoeJackson029

Joe Jackson is a piece of work. Despite Michael’s wishes, Joe Jackson has filed for a stipend:

Court records show Michael Jackson’s father is seeking an allowance from his son’s estate. An attorney for Joe Jackson filed papers…… in Los Angeles on Friday seeking a stipend, saying there was no apparent reason for the administrators of the estate to not seek an allowance for the 81-year-old family patriarch.

Michael Jackson’s 2002 will, however, only called for money to be paid to his mother, Katherine, his three young children, and various charities. A judge has approved more than $26,000 in payments to Katherine Jackson each month, and a $60,000 monthly payment for the care of the children.

Didn’t Michael specifically ask that Joe not be allowed to have his creepy paws close to any of his money??? What a lowlife!

 

Oh nose! Michael Jackson’s prosthetic schnozz goes missing

0_61_jackson_may_2006_320

Yup, we’re still not finished with all the weird Michael Jackson stories coming to light.  This one is courtesy of Fox News:

Michael Jackson wore a prosthetic nose, according a report — and it was missing from his surgically mangled face as he lay in an LA morgue.

Left behind was a small, dark hole surrounded by bits of cartilage, Rolling Stone magazine said, citing witnesses who saw the King of Pop’s body on the autopsy table.

Jackson, who was notoriously shy about his appearance, wore the prosthetic to mask the effects of decades of plastic surgery, according to the magazine, due to hit newsstands today.

Looking at Michael Jackson’s face with a nose was scary enough.  We can’t imagine what a monstrosity he would have looked without it.  But the boys behind South Park already did that for us a couple years ago, so let’s refresh our memory of what he probably looked like:

Elizabeth Taylor expresses grief over Michael Jackson’s death

eliza
Dame Elizabeth Taylor has issued a touchy statement to express her feelings over the death of her best friend Michael Jackson. Earlier, her rep had issued a statement saying that she was too devastated (by the news of Jacko’s death) to express herself.

My heart ... my mind ... are broken. I loved Michael with all my soul and I can’t imagine life without him. We had so much in common and we had such loving fun together. I was packing up my clothes to go to London for his opening when I heard the news. I still can’t believe it. I don’t want to believe it. It can’t be so. He will live in my heart forever but it’s not enough. My life feels so empty. I don’t think anyone knew how much we loved each other. The purest most giving love I’ve ever known. Oh God! I’m going to miss him. I can’t yet imagine life without him. But I guess with God’s help ... I’ll learn. I keep looking at the photo he gave me of himself, which says, ‘To my true love Elizabeth, I love you forever.’ And, I will love HIM forever.

True. Michael Jackson’s death has left a big void in our hearts. Michael will be dearly missed by all his fans and friends.
