It’s been a year since Michael Jackson‘s death and not only have the rumors not slowed, they’ve gotten even more bizarre.

Where Were You When You Heard Michael Jackson Died?

Today marks one year since the King of Pop died. I remember — as I’m sure almost everyone else does, too — exactly where I was when I heard the news. I’d just walked into a jewelry store in the East Village with my now-husband to pick up our wedding bands. Our wedding was less than a month away and we were excited to cross off another big item from our ever-growing to-do list. As we walked into the shop, the owner, a funky woman covered in tattoos, said, “Michael Jackson‘s dead!” Farrah Fawcett had died earlier that day, of course, and we wondered if maybe she was confused or something. But how do you get Farrah and MJ mixed up? Soon enough, the news was confirmed and it wasn’t long before the whole neighborhood was filled with Michael Jackson music blaring from apartments and car windows. So, where were you when you heard the news? And can you believe it’s already been a year? Keep reading »

LaToya Jackson Reunites With Michael’s Chimp


This clip from an Animal Planet documentary shows LaToya Jackson reuniting with Michael Jackson‘s former pet, Bubbles. The chimp basically just stared at her from behind the bars of his Florida sanctuary while LaToya got all emotional, making us feel a tad sorry for both parties. Bubbles used to go everywhere with MJ, but in 2003 he got too large and aggressive for the star’s lavish lifestyle and was taken away. Hi Bubbles! Keep reading »

Michael Jackson Had Skin-Whitening Creams In His Home

Detectives found an array of skin-whitening creams and medications in Michael Jackson‘s home, according to recently unsealed search warrants. A cupboard in Michael’s bedroom contained 19 tubes of hydroquinone and 18 tubes of Benoquin. It is suspected that Michael used the skin-whitening creams to remove the pigment from the patches of his skin that weren’t affected by the skin condition vitiligo. Benoquin is the brand name of monobenzone, which the American Academy of Dermatology lists as a permanent treatment of vitiligo. Hydroquinone is a bleaching chemical typically prescribed to treat freckles, blotches and other pigmented spots in order to give the skin a more even tone, but it is also found in OTC products. The FDA has had hydroquinone on its cancer watch list for decades. [Fox 411, Web MD] Keep reading »

Should Prince And Paris Jackson Have Spoken At The Grammys?


Can we talk for a minute about Michael Jackson’s kids, Prince and Paris Jackson, accepting the lifetime achievement award on behalf of their father at the Grammys last night? First, they’re gorgeous kids who seem healthy and well-adjusted and it’s heartening to see them no longer hiding behind veils like they did when their dad was alive. But just because they aren’t hiding anymore, I’m not sure it’s the best idea to parade them in front of millions and millions of viewers only months after they lost their father. Speaking on a stage like that is hard enough for a seasoned professional, but these are young kids who aren’t experienced performers. Poor Paris could barely get the words out, and what she said didn’t really make any sense. Can you imagine the mix of nerves and grief in a situation like that? I don’t know … maybe there’s an argument that accepting the award and publicly expressing the love they have for their father is therapeutic. I just hope they have people who are more concerned with their emotional well-being than turning them into public figures in Michael’s memory. What are your thoughts? [via YouTube] Keep reading »

Gerard Butler Does A Not-So-Flattering Michael Jackson Impression

What exactly is Gerard Butler doing in this photo? He’s recreating that insane moment in 2002 when Michael Jackson dangled baby Blanket—with an, uh, blanket over his head—out of a window while the paparazzi snapped pics. Instead of a baby, Gerard has opted for a potted plant and towel. What do you think—is he hilarious for reminding us of a bizarro incident that’s been forgotten in the wake of Michael Jackson’s death? Or is this just tacky? Keep reading »
