So much for resting in peace. Forbes magazine even wants dead celebs to work hard for their money. They just released a list titled “Top Earning Dead Celebrities.” Of course, the primo place is not filled by anyone predictable. Apparently, the most valuable “deleb” is designer Yves Saint Laurent. Earlier this year, an auction of this dude’s belongings raked in about $443 million in three days. The duo Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein hold down spot number two for creating musicals like “South Pacific,” “Oklahoma,” and “The Sound of Music.” Michael Jackson is number three and Elvis Presley, who usually secures the top spot, is at #4. But the list gets weirder … Keep reading »
Back in July, when we heard that Sony Pictures had plunked down $60 million smackers for 120 hours of footage from Michael Jackson‘s rehearsals for the “This Is It” tour that never was, we wondered if they were geniuses or crazy people. Yes, with MJ love flying high, it seemed like huge numbers of people would pay $10 to $12 for a peek inside the final rehearsals. But then again, 120 hours is not actually a lot of material when it comes to making a feature film—and they paid half a mill per hour. Well, “This Is It” finally opened yesterday, with simultaneous premieres in 16 cities across the globe. Directed by Kenny Ortega, who created the tour with Jackson, it is part concert movie and part documentary. The flick is now showing in 18,000 theaters, but it will only be playing for two weeks. So, should you walk to the theater, run to the theater, or stay at home and ignore the movie’s existence? That really depends on whom you ask. Keep reading »

“My brother’s movie ‘This Is It’ is truly riveting. Michael is electrifying! We get a glimpse of a true genius at work. His passionate message for healing the world, saving the planet and our children’s futures is something he was always striving for in his lifetime.”
— Jackie Jackson, one of Michael’s older brothers, gushes about “This Is It,” the movie about Michael’s final days, which opens late tomorrow night.

Michael Jackson did his best to shield his three children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket, from prying eyes and the media, even when dangling an infant Blanket over a balcony railing. When he was alive they often wore scarves or masks in public. So, I wonder how he would feel about his children appearing in an upcoming A&E reality show, the latest Jackson family sideshow act.

“People can have rhinoceros skin, but there’s a point when something’s going to hurt you. Not everyone is stone. I haven’t watched the news in weeks. I had to ask my chef, ‘How’s Obama doing?’ I haven’t read a newspaper…Now at least I know that I can step up to the plate and not crumble when I’m needed. When it comes to something like this that is so, so serious, so painful, so traumatic, I can handle it.”
Oh lordy, how’s this for crazy back-from-Labor-Day-weekend news? There’s a scary rumor circulating that our fashion nemesis, Christian Audigier of Ed Hardy fame, has purchased Michael Jackson‘s Neverland Ranch. Um, yeah.
According to an interview with Agence France-Presse, Audigier said, “I bought the Michael Jackson house. It’s something I’m gonna open just for the birthday (sic) of his death every June, where the media is gonna be able to come in and we’ll do exposes, etc.”
Of course entertainment bloggers are having a field day with this, but we’re more concerned with the sartorial side of things. It’s not as if Neverland is known for being a tasteful setting per se, but plop some Ed Hardy crap in there and it’s officially the tackiest place on earth. We just hope this rumor is false.
