Obama on Michael Jackson

President Barack Obama called Michael Jackson a brilliant performer whose talents were paired with a tragic personal life.

"I'm glad to see that he is being remembered primarily for the great joy that he brought to a lot of people through his extraordinary gifts as an entertainer," Obama said in an AP interview Thursday.

Obama said he didn't see any controversy in the fact that he did not issue a formal public statement upon Jackson's death, and said he was unaware of any dissatisfaction in the black community with his response.

"I know a lot of people in the black community and I haven't heard that," Obama said.

The president said he grew up on Jackson's music and "I still have all his stuff on my iPod."

"I think that Michael Jackson will go down in history as one of our greatest entertainers," Obama said. "His brilliance as a performance also was paired with a tragic and in many ways, sad personal life."

Obama personally sent a letter of condolence to the Jackson family, the contents of which were not revealed.

Michael was in good shape and health the day before he died

It seems like AEG Live no longer wants to wait to show video proof of Michael Jackson’s fitness and health. Sources say the concert promoter will likely release some “live” video clips from Jackson’s rehearsals either late tonight or early tomorrow.

The release will not be exclusive but rather like a movie release—wide—to get the most impact. The clips will show Jackson dancing, singing, and directing his show, interacting with cast members as they put together the “This Is It” tour for London. Photos from the tour were distributed days ago by AEG; there’s also talk of a DVD to come.

If this doesn’t dispel the idea that Jackson was frail or incoherent, nothing will.

Reported Jackson autopsy is a fake

Michael Jackson RIPWe've learned the story making the rounds detailing the terrible condition of Michael Jackson's body is a fake.

A report in The Sun gave harrowing details of the body, but we've learned the "autopsy report" was fabricated and completely false.

The Los Angeles County coroner just released the following statement: "The report that is being published did not come from this office. I don't know where the information came from, or who that information came from. It is not accurate. Some of it is totally false."  Source: TMZ

Janet Jackson led the tributes to Michael at the BET Awards

Janet Jackson led the tributes to Michael at the BET Awards last night.

The crowd fell silent as she walked on to the stage at Hollywood's Shrine Auditorium before thanking fans for their love and support.

"My entire family wanted to be here tonight, but it was just too painful, so they elected me to be here to speak with you," said the tearful singer.

"To you Michael was an icon. To us, Michael is family and he will forever live in all of our hearts.

"On behalf of my family and myself, thank you for all of your love, and for all your support. We miss him so much."

Michael Jackson's death - A crime investigation

Conrad MurrayPolice have launched a criminal investigation into Michael Jackson's shocking death, his family's lawyer said yesterday. And the Jacksons are set to start their own legal battle if no one is charged over the tragedy. Michael's personal doctor was quizzed for three hours by Los Angeles Police Department on Saturday.

Dr Conrad Murray is suspected of giving Jacko a shot of the potent painkiller Demerol before he collapsed and frantically tried to revive the singer long after he had died. He is even believed to have plunged a syringe into the 50-year-old pop icon's heart in his efforts to save him. Homicide detectives investigating the death have insisted it is not a criminal investigation.

But family lawyer Brian Oxman yesterday told The Sun the Jacksons have been told otherwise - and they want anybody who is found to be responsible to be brought to justice. The family carried out their own private second autopsy on Saturday to give them evidence to launch legal proceedings after the coroner's examination ruled out foul play. Mr Oxman said: "I can tell you, and this is a new development, there is a criminal investigation taking place by the Los Angeles Police Department. That is the case. They have told the family.

"What they are going to do, who they are going to talk to and what is going to happen, I don't know. That is up to them. I don't want to make any accusations as to any particular people. I want to wait till the toxicology tests are completed and let the authorities do their thing. Then we will find out."

As for Dr Murray, he added: "I don't know what he did. But the reports I have heard are disturbing. A Demerol shot sure sounds consistent with what I knew." Dr Murray, 51, had desperately tried to save Jackson's life before the 911 call was made on Thursday. The Jackson family want to know what happened in those crucial minutes - and he has been criticised by medical experts for administering CPR on a bed rather than the floor.
