Michael Jackson New Album Rodney "Dark Child" Jerkins

Michael Jackson left producer Rodney "Dark Child" Jerkins with a lot of unreleased material when he unexpectedly passed back in June of 2009. Rodney Jerkins was a long time producer for Michael Jackson and the two had a strong personal relationship as well. Now, Rodney Jerkins is compiling a new Michael Jackson album using the unreleased tracks of new material that he produced with Michael Jackson. In a current interview, Rodney Jerkins spoke about the project and the politics involved in releasing it. “You know there is a lot of red tape, but it's definitely going to happen.” Dark Child also discussed the different sides of Michael Jackson in the interview. Not very many people got full insight into the business mind of Michael Jackson as well as experience his personal side. “Michael was quiet with people he didn't know,” Jerkins said. “But Michael and I used to kick it in Miami and we kicked it in New York all the time...I knew a little about publishing when I came into the game at 16, but when I started working with Michael I was 20 and he taught me about buying publishing and acquiring a catalog at a young age."

Michael is survived by three children, Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and eight year old Prince Michael II, known as ‘Blanket’. The kids are now looked after by the star’s mother Katherine Jackson, and his brother Jermaine says they are thriving.
“My mother raised nine kids, so she definitely knows how to raise them,” he explained. “They love the film business, and they love being behind the scenes. Blanket loves to dance and sing. Prince and Paris love movies. They can tell you about directors and producers and all that stuff.”
Jermaine explained the whole family are pulling together to care for the children, and help them cope with their grief. Regular dinners are set up so the kids see all their aunts and uncles, and they also get taken on lots of holidays. The trio spent the first anniversary of Michael’s death, on June 25, in Hawaii.
Prince, Paris and Blanket love being with their cousins, and relax by playing video games and going to look animated films.
Jermaine was speaking at a dinner celebrating the fifth annual Children Uniting Nations conference in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, and his brother Randy was also there. Randy echoed Jermaine’s sentiment that Katherine is looking after the kids well.
“I feel Michael everywhere,” he told People magazine. “I know Michael's spirit is so much alive. He's guiding me ... us to just keep things going and keep things the way they're supposed to be.”

Michael Jackson: Michael Jackson's Home To Become Open To Public

If you're a Michael Jackson fan you might be in luck his former home aka Neverland Ranch might become a state park which means you may be able to visit his home. According to reports, plans have been made to make the land, which is co owned by the Jackson family and a private equity firm Colony Capital, available to the public. Residents have previously protested against making the site a tourist attraction, but if all the plans go ahead fans will be able to visit the King of Pop's former residence. California assemblyman, Mike Davis, told Associated Press: "Given that we have an economic shortfall... I suspect it would be difficult for the State Parks Department to purchase the property alone... I am committed to finding out all details possible to make this a good proposal". Although it was his home, Jacko did move out of the house in 2005 after it was raided for evidence after his 2003 arrest for child molestation charges.

Michael Jackson: Neverland To Become A State Park

Michael Jackson’s former famed residence Neverland may become California’s newest state park.
A resolution is in the works that has state park officials examining whether the 2,600 plus acre estate could in fact be converted in to an attraction, that could result in profitable revenue for the cash strapped state.
The plan to convert the property is being rallied by California Assemblyman Mike Davis and the state’s NAACP. Davis firmly believes that the Santa Barbara County estate would draw millions of visitors from around the globe. California’s NAACP President Alice Huffman, who is also on the board of the state’s parks commission, says, “I think Michael’s history is world history, and I think it would become the No. 1 attraction for the state parks if we could pull it off.”
Huffman also thinks that in addition to celebrating Jackson’s musical and cultural contributions, Neverland could join the ranks of state parks, which would honor African Americans like Colonel Allensworth State Historic Park in Earlimart, Calif.

Michael Jackson: Wanted His Monkey to Talk!

MICHAEL Jackson wanted his pet chimp Bubbles to talk — according to the tragic singer’s sister, LaToya.
LaToya claims the Thriller hitmaker — who died last year after suffering a heart attack following an accident drugs overdose — spent a fortune trying to get leading throat specialists to implant vocal chords into his furry friend.
Michael always wanted to know how to make Bubbles speak and talk,” she told Britain’s News of The World.
“They definitely communicated. One morning Michael called me said ‘You got to see this — he mimics everything I do’. So Michael starts brushing his teeth and Bubbles looks up and gets a tooth brush and starts brushing his teeth too.
“Then he wanted to give him vocal chords and asked doctors ‘Can I give him an operation so that I can know what his thoughts are’.”
Michael had to let Bubbles move out of the family home in Encino, California, when he got too big in 1988.
“The trainers who came to the house felt the situation wasn’t normal and he shouldn’t be there,” said La Toya.
“Bubbles became extremely strong. When he was younger he would slap you and it would not hurt. But now they could knock you out. Sometimes he would swing on a chandelier and fly onto a table, and Michael would scream ‘no, no’.”
