I need to address the latest Michael Jackson controversy. Let me bring you up to speed: Sony recently announced that they will be releasing a new album by Michael Jackson. It will probably be comprised of songs he recorded early that never made the cut, or songs from near the end, that have never seen the light of day. The first single is called "Breaking News" and his family is in a tizzy, denying its authenticity. There is a lot of "I know Michael, and that is not him singing" going on.

I heard some "Breaking News" today. There are parts that I'm certain are Michael, but I suppose most of it does not sound typical. If you've ever heard his Invincible album, you may notice that they had altered his voice in some songs. This may be to suit the desired key of the song, or that Michael alone just couldn't cut it anymore. So yes, it involved adjusting the pitch of his voice, which is likely what they have done with "Breaking News."

Why the hell would Sony release a song under the name of Michael Jackson if it simply was not him? I mean really, it's a shot in the foot. It's Milli Vanilli territory, it's bloody suicide. I realise that his family know him the best, but I too think I know Michael's art pretty damn well. I would not be doubting this song at all if it weren't for all of this hype.
