New Michael Jackson Single Debuts, Album Cover Art Controversy

An alleged brand new single titled “Breaking News,” from the late King of Pop Michael Jackson has debut on his official website. In the track, Jackson talks about his own life, how he was living under microscope of the greedy paparazzi and media who seemed to want nothing but destroying his life. “Everybody wanting a piece of Michael Jackson/ Reporters stalking the moves of Michael Jackson/ Just when you thought he was done, he comes to give it again,” Michael sings. “They want to see that I fall, cause I’m Michael Jackson/ You write the words to destroy like it’s a weapon.” “Breaking News” is the lead single for Michael Jackson’s upcoming posthumous album “Michael” which hit stores December 14. Jackson’s mother Katherine and his children claim “Breaking News” among other songs are not Michael’s vocals but Sony Music Group insist they have done forensic studies to prove that the songs are authentic. “We have complete confidence in the results of our extensive research as well as the accounts of those who were in the studio with Michael that the vocals on the new album are his own,” Sony says in a statement. In related news, Jackson’s previously released cover art reportedly contained an unauthorized use of Prince’s symbol. A representative for Prince filed complaint to Sony Music Group and the company subsequently removed it from the artwork. Prince’s rep told, “No permission was granted. [So] Sony Entertainment has removed the symbol.”
