  1. Poder te ido em um dos Show do Michael Jackson e no The Beatles !

  2. I started to listen to Michael a lot lately. I sometimes wish i would have done that before he died :(. RIP

  3. Michael Jackson was incredible, he was such a legend in every right. Here’s to wishing his heart and love live on forever. Long live MJ!

  4. I just don’t think Michael would want this released and through Sony… obviously many fans never listened to him when he said he hated Sony.

    I’m more interested in why he died and why the doctor made 47mins worth of calls before dialling 911.

    RIP Michael I hope justice is done for you but I’m not holding my breath, this is such a f**ked up world at times and all he wanted was for it to better – sad eh 🙁

  5. This is exciting but I wish only a disc of his unreleased material would be available too. I own all of Michael Jackson’s albums!!

    Thank you for the heads up.

  6. I am definately looking forward to this.

  7. actually he wrote planet earth before prince boo…. research … read dancing the dream … 1992……..

  8. Planet Earth was written long ago. It’s included in his book. How is it possible for someone that is dead to copy someone who is alive?

  9. Planet Earth? so even in his death he is copying Prince?

  10. Looks like it’s going to be a good documentary. Bittersweet indeed.

  11. BTW, I really like MJ’s work. He and his brothers were great and I’ve always loved their work. MJ was special though! Now, yes I’m a huge Prince fan. I think Michael was jealous (for lack of a better word) of Prince’s work/talent. So, my previous post was my impulse thougth to that…not knowing which was written first.

  12. Thanks Velo !!!! …very well said

    by the way Tabloid Junkie is one of my favs … (smile)

  13. Whoa! Jacksons, you can’t release a spoken word poem titled “Planet Earth” by Michael after Prince has already released his spoken word poem, “Planet Earth” on tv at an award show and then released it as lyrics to the song “Planet Earth”. C’mon man!

  14. P.S. to kenni

    Sorry, I usually don’t address other’s comments but… if you’re “burnt out” why read an article related to Michael, and then go so far as to comment on it? You don’t have to read it, you don’t have to feed it…

    And for those of us who are fans, the man gave us 45 years worth of music and humanitarian efforts like no other. Three months and it’s “time to move on”? Really?

  15. Thank you. It’s a bittersweet symphony.

    I miss you, Michael. Ich liebe dich mehr…

  16. I am simply “burnt out” with all the MJ hoopla. It’s time to move on.

  17. I know that poem

    “Imaging holding Planet Earth in the Palm of your hand……”


  18. Looking forward to it? YES, ABSOLUTELY. Miss him dearly.
    Thank you Doc. FB.

  19. Man I can not wait! I have been DL mj material ever since his death (even before his death)! This documentary will be just the fix I needed. And I am glad to see that Prince is gonna cover some of mj’s material also.


  20. I can’t wait to hear it I just hope the song captures Michaels essence. I still miss him….

  21. Yes !!! … I am sooooo looking forward to any new material from Michael Jackson.
