Michael Jackson sick

While is typically the punchlines of all sorts of jokes, he is now in a very serious condition, if InTouch sources are to be believed. The magazine is reporting that Michael Jackson is suffering from the rare genetic disease Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency.

award-winning investigative journalist Ian Halperin tells In Touch that he believes that the King of Pop is fighting for is life. “Michael has a very severe lung condition called Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency,” Halperin, a New York Times best-selling author, tells In Touch exclusively. “He’s had it for years but it’s gotten worse. He needs a lung transplant but may be too weak to go through with it. He also has emphysema and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding, which his doctors have had a lot of trouble stopping. It’s the bleeding that is the most problematic part. It could kill him.

Needing a transplant, but being too weak to get one done, is never a good combination. Couple that with chronic bleeding, and there is cause for much concern. And, of course, there is more on the actual disease itself.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music, Sports, Legal Issues, Rumors,

Michael jacksonDespite coming narrowly close to losing his Los Olivos home, has managed to stay on as owner of Neverland Ranch.

The 2500-acre property was set to go on the auction block next week due to unpaid taxes.  Luckily for Jackson, his lawyers were able to work out a private agreement that would allow him to refinance his $24.5 million debt.

It’s unclear at this point whether the singer will opt to hang on to the home or attempt to sell it on his own terms.  Michael has not actually lived on the estate since the whole 2005 child molestation scandal.

David Beckham - Victoria’s better half - is one of the parties rumored to be interested in the property.

No More Neverland for Jackson

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Music, Legal Issues,

Michael Jackson's Neverland RanchUnless fallen icon can pay off a $24.5 million loan by March 19th, the infamous Neverland Ranch will be auctioned off to the public.

On top of that, it’s not just the house that’s being auctioned off—it’s everything in and on the property, according to FOXNews.com. They report that Jackson may even let the Santa Barbara estate be sold, as he has not lived there for nearly three years.

Although has been giving Michael competition for the Most Mentally Unstable Celebrity Award, Jackson is still quite the oddball who just might fight at the very end to keep his beloved ranch. Then again, it could very well go in the opposite direction by falling into the hands of a very crazed fan. Some people are even speculating that it may even be best to leave as a museum, since Jackson’s international fan base is still very strong.

Listen to New Michael Jackson Track

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music, Videos,

Michael Jackson Thriller 25For years now, I’ve made the habit of adding asterisks to my age.  (I’ll just say that I’m somewhere around 30****.)  Now the release of a special album has forced me to address my declining youth once again.

Tomorrow, Thriller 25 will be the latest CD to hit the stores.  This means we’ve now hit the classic album’s silver anniversary.  (Technically, it was released in December 1982.)  I swear I can see his protruding wrist bones splashed inside the cover like it was yesterday…

Tuesday’s deluxe edition will not only include remixes of the classic tracks (contributing artists include Akon, will.i.am and ) but several bonus songs as well.  One of those new additions, “For All Time”, is a record that never made the original cut.  It has since been tweaked for the 2008 update.  (You can listen to it here.)  While I would not consider the song memorable, it does bring back fond memories of a less freakish era.)
