Randy Jackson has insisted that several tracks on Michael Jackson’s new album do not feature his vocals.
In a series of posts on his Twitter page, he said:
“Me and my nephew were the first to say that it wasn’t his voice on some of the tracks. The family and the executors of the Estate, Branca and McClain, are not on the same page.
“I became suspicious about the album when I heard [that] armed guards were involved. Since my brother’s passing, John McClain insisted that no family members were allowed at his studio where the project was being completed.”
“My first thought was, ‘What are they trying to hide?’ Teddy Riley (producer) was brought in just to mix and insisted on switching studios, at which [point] he called me to come down and hear my brother’s music.
“I heard the music and I immediately said it wasn’t his voice. Some of the songs are him, and some aren’t. I would bet my life on that.”
Jackson also insisted that music bosses were being “harsh” and “more concerned about making money off his death”.
He also added:
“They could care less about why and how he died, or maybe they already know.”
Michael Jackson’s posthumous album Michael is released on December 14.

After receiving some backlash, Lloyd has taken to his blog to clarify some remarks he made about Chris Brown’s performance at Sunday’s BET Awards.
He’s back with a vengeance,” Lloyd told Rap-Up.com after the show, where he was nominated in the Viewer’s Choice category for his hook on Young Money’s Bed Rock…..I think that they’re gonna find a place in their heart for him again. … I told him, man, you gotta get up there. You gotta cry, you gotta really show your heart to the world.”
The statement above fuelled rumours that he told Brown to cry during his Michael Jackson tribute, so in response, Lloyd stated “I consider Chris a friend. He’s been through a lot in the past couple years,” Lloyd wrote.
“I never told him to go onstage and cry. We spoke recently, and I told him as a friend that people hadn’t really seen him be vulnerable about his situation last year (with Rihanna). I thought he was holding back and needed to let that emotion out. Him crying at the BET Awards was real, I could feel it.”
He also speculated about the possible source of those tears, saying Brown may have cried “about the fact that he thought people would hate him forever because of one mistake.
“Feeling that love on stage was probably overwhelming. Plus MJ being gone and him performing Man in the Mirror, that song is powerful, especially for his situation. It pushed him over the edge.”
Lloyd also lashed out at the “many blogs and fans” who saw his original statement as a negative comment on Brown. “To say that he was faking or that I’m hating on him, that’s some bullsh**t,” he said.
“Last week Essence.com asked me what artist most embodied MJ. I told them it was Chris. I never saw MJ perform live, but Chris is the closest thing I’ve witnessed. Chris is back, and I’m just as excited as his fans are.”

Michael Jackson’s make-up artist, Karen Faye has released this never before seen clip of the King of Pop on the one year anniversary of his death.
The behind the scenes footage was shot on the set of his Speed Demon video from his 1988 film Moonwalker.
Micheal Jackson will always be remembered as one of the greatest that ever did.
It was a shock to me, as I’m sure it was a shock to you when he passed away . I remember when I got the call from a friend who asked “Have you heard the biggest news right now? Go to TMZ and check it out.”
I didn’t think it was true as Micheal is the King of PR, he’s has openly always said he was, I just thought it was only of those and so i just fobbed it off. I later realised, when the family made the official statement that he had passed away and it changed everything.
Micheal Jackson seemed like a man that would live forever. His music definitely will. He was so great.
I recently went to a youth centre back home and i discovered that while Michael was in the UK preparing for the ‘This Is it’ tour, they received some money from him , for the kids and for the centre, to help them buy equipment to develop the children’s skills.
This to me showed true greatness as it wasn’t about anyone else – it was just about him giving – he simply gave.
Micheal we thank you and love you. Thank you for inspiring the world.
Here’s one of the 12 unpublished portraits from an “Invincible” album photo session.
Captured by French photographer, Arno Bani , the images will be auctioned off later in the year by Pierre Bergé & Associés.
Michael Jackson fans will be moonwalking next to the King of Pop in no time – thanks to the new video game set to be released by Ubisoft Entertainment.
The unnamed game will be among the first to use new motion-detecting camera systems to be available later this year for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s PlayStation 3. The announcement was made Monday at the E3 video game show in Los Angeles. The game will also work with hand-held controllers on Nintendo’s Wii and on the smaller Nintendo DS and PSP portable console from Sony.
The game’s launch will roughly coincide with the planned sale of a new album containing unreleased Jackson recordings in November.
Ubisoft marketing vice president Tony Key says as part of the game, players will learn how to mimic the late Jackson’s signature moves. Key says, “You are going to learn to moonwalk.”
Michael Jackson’s father Joe Jackson is blaming his wife for Michael’s death.
In a video interview with the News of the World, Joe claims his wife could have saved her son’s life if she had kept a closer eye on him. Prior to Michael’s death, his dad told Katherine that their son was “looking kinda funny and frail,” but says his wife refused to approach her son.
Randy Jackson is hoping to allow people into the private mausoleum in California’s Forest Lawn Memorial Park to mark the anniversary of his death next month.
He tweeted: ‘I’m meeting with Forest Lawn and the City of Glendale. Although they have strict rules, I’ll do my best 2 see if fans can visit & pay their respects beyond the gates of ForestLawn, on the 25th. I will inform you all soon. (sic)’ The area where Michael – who died of acute Propofol intoxication aged 50 on June 25 2009 – is buried is normally off limits to non-family members and Randy’s intentions have infuriated the families of other people laid to rest there. Legendary actor Clark Gable’s grandson, Clark Gable III, told gossip website TMZ the mausoleum “wouldn’t be as sacred” if just anyone could go inside.
Recently, Michael’s ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley appealed to fans to send silk sunflowers to the cemetery to brighten up the singer’s final resting place. The brunette star wrote on her website: “Greetings MJ Fans.
“While visiting him a few days ago at Forest Lawn, Riley and I couldn’t help but notice that, while there are a few bouquets, candles and gifts there is a very large empty space around him and in front of him that could use a whole lot more…..I know how much he loved and appreciated being showered with Gifts and flowers by his fans, I thought if whoever wants to bought just one silk sunflower each and sent it, the whole area around him and in front of him (As well as the two large empty vases that sit on either side of him) could be filled up in no time, which would be much more appropriate than what the current status is right now. (sic)”
After Lisa’s request, flower grower Jason Levin delivered around 2,000 sunflowers to the massive marble and concrete mausoleum which house Michael’s remains.
