PETA Demands A Dairy-Free Butter Sculpture Of Michael Jackson

I have a confession to make. I love PETA. I disagree with some of their campaigns and their incessant harassment of the Olsen twins, but they hardly ever fail to amuse with their marketing campaigns. Kentucky Fried Cruelty? The Unhappy Meal? Ha! PETA’s latest campaign is pretty chuckle-tastic, too. They’ve requested that the Iowa State Fair, which has announced that they’re commissioning a butter sculpture of Michael Jackson, use non-dairy spread instead of actual butter for the tribute. Last week, the fair’s marketing director made an online ballot for people to vote to butter or not to butter…and at one point there was a surge towards the latter. PETA recommends using Earth Balance “natural buttery spread,” instead. Cue me spending 20 minutes trying to figure out if Earth Balance is owned by PETA—no luck. Now to go eat a stick of butter and play dress-up with the “Trollsen Twins.” [AP] Keep reading »

Advertising Gaffe In Michael Jackson Catching On Fire Video

Today Access Hollywood and US Weekly share exclusive, never-before-seen footage of Michael Jackson’s hair catching on fire during the infamous 1984 Pepsi commercial filming. The pyrotechnic disaster is significant not just because Jackson sustained some very serious second- and third-degree burn injuries, but some insiders claim it was the catalyst for the painkiller addictions that would later cost him his life. While I do believe that posting this seriously disturbing video is tasteless and tawdry, I’m actually kind of an a-hole because once I knew it was there I couldn’t resist taking a peek. While I waited for the video to load, I was treated to a commercial about new Dove products where the narrator cooed, “Repair your hair.” Next, MJ’s hair caught on fire. Yeesh. To be fair, the commercials they show in this video rotate and I’m sure this was totally inadvertent, but just sayin’… Might wanna yank that one guys. [Access Hollywood] Keep reading »

The King Of Pop News Drop: Was Michael Murdered? And Gay?

  • La Toya Jackson is certain that her brother was murdered. She told the Daily Mail that Jackson “was surrounded by a bad circle” of people who weren’t on his side. She also mentioned that her own personal autopsy of Jackson’s body revealed four fresh needle marks in his neck. [Daily Mail] — Guess we’ll have to see what the actual autopsy concludes.
  • Ian Helperin, the writer behind an unauthorized Michael Jackson biography which is being rushed to print as we speak, claims that “virtually everybody” knew Jackson was gay.

Casting The Michael Jackson Movie

A biopic about Michael Jackson is a Hollywood must. The potential film has A-list and Oscar written all over it. The story of the pop icon is full of highs, lows, success, drama and a climatic ending. Well, of course we need a cast and here is what I propose for the MJ story — I am sure the movie is already in the works and Steven Spielberg is trying to buy the rights!
