The fans finally have a book that expresses what they know to be the truth about The Icon of Music Michael Jackson. The Author takes you through Michael Jackson life from the viewpoint of a fan. Backed by intense research and interview from noted film-maker and defense witness for Michael Jackson Larry Nimmer who also wrote this about the book. "You've done excellent research and there were some things that I learned that I didn't know. It was interesting what you had to say about the accusers and about his dad, Joe Jackson. I liked your comparison that Americans will sleep with animals in their bed but they are not accused of bestailiaty... good comparison... You've presented a convincing story about people who fabricated stories for personal gain, including the media, at the expense of Michael Jackson... great job and very interesting." Larry Nimmer

MJ: The Genius of Michael Jackson

The definitive biography of Michael Jackson, a “vivid…gripping...authoritative account of a world-changing force of nature” (Rolling Stone), celebrating the King of Pop’s legendary contributions to music, dance, and popular culture. From the moment in 1965 when he first stepped on stage—at age seven—in Gary, Indiana, Michael Jackson was destined to become the undisputed King of Pop. In a career spanning four decades, Jackson became a global icon, selling over four hundred million albums, earning thirteen Grammy awards, and spinning dance moves that captivated the world. Songs like “Billie Jean” and “Black and White” altered our national discussion of race and equality, and Jackson’s signature aesthetic, from the single white glove to the moonwalk, defined a generation. Despite publicized scandals and controversy, Jackson’s ultimate legacy will always be his music. In an account that “reminds us why Michael Jackson was, indeed, a ‘genius’ entertainer” (New York Newsday), Rolling Stone contributing editor Steve Knopper delves deeply into Jackson’s music and talent. From the artist’s early days with the Jackson 5, to his stratospheric success as a solo artist, to “Beat It” and “Thriller,” “Bad” and “The Man in the Mirror,” to his volatile final years, his attempted comeback, and untimely death, Knopper draws on his “critical and reportorial savvy in assessing Jackson’s creative peaks and valleys,” (USA TODAY) exploring the beguiling and often contradictory forces that fueled Michael Jackson’s genius. Drawing on an amazing four hundred interviews—ranging from Jackson’s relatives, friends, and key record executives to celebrities like will.i.am and Weird Al Yankovic—this critical biography puts his career into perspective and celebrates his triumph in art and music. This is “a thoughtful look at an artist who grew up in a segregated mill town and who, for the rest of his life, made music to bring down walls” (Chicago Tribune).

Otherness and Power: Michael Jackson and His Media Critics

Otherness and Power: Michael Jackson and His Media Critics is an innovative study of the cultural impact of Michael Jackson. Jackson had millions of ardent fans around the world, but from the early days of his adult career many in the media mocked and reviled him. How did such divergent attitudes come about? This book examines the origins and psychological underpinnings of the media's hostility by closely analyzing some of the most harshly critical writings about Jackson. While racism and discomfort with Jackson's "otherness" have previously been recognized as the elements that fueled media criticisms, Susan Woodward reveals another important factor: the perception that Jackson was extraordinarily powerful, in ways that went beyond celebrity and wealth. Through research and careful analysis, Woodward explores the ways in which Jackson's power was seen, the largely unconscious response to his power, the functions of the media's criticisms and the origins of the perceptions of Jackson's power.

The first question to ask in any homicide is "What was the motive?" For Dr. Conrad Murray the real motive should have been to keep Michael Jackson alive. That way he could get paid. But it wasn't Dr. Murray that was the only person in Michael Jackson's life at the end. There were other people too. Other people who did have a motive to kill. Working backwards from information personally received, discoveries have been made as to who the real killer of Michael Jackson was. This recounting of the events as they happened, is a personal testimony to the discoveries and evidence supporting the conspiracy and cover up of the murder of one of the greatest entertainers and humanitarians in world history - Michael Jackson.

Wir alle kennen ihn - aber wer ist Michael Jackson? In ihrem eleganten Essay nähert sich Margo Jefferson der spannendsten und widersprüchlichsten Figur der Popkultur, einem Star, den Hits wie Billie Jean und Thriller unsterblich machten. Sie analysiert das Phänomen Jackson, wie er erst als schwarzer Kinderstar, dann als exzentrischer Freak und schließlich als Verdächtigter vor Gericht von sich reden machte - und zur zerbrechlichsten Ikone der Postmoderne wurde. Eine brillante, pointiert gefasste Studie, die Publishers Weekly mit Susan Sontags frühen Aufsätzen zur amerikanischen Popkultur verglich.

Drawing on never-before-seen material, this definitive biography exposes the true extent of the Jackson family's dysfunctionality -- evidence of which is still in the public eye as they dispute the star's will Jackson was the most talented, richest, and most famous pop star on the planet. But the outpouring of emotion that followed his loss was bittersweet. Dogged by scandal for over fifteen years, and undone by his own tendency to trust the wrong people, Jackson had become untouchable in many quarters, a fact that wounded him deeply. Now, drawing on unprecedented access to friends, enemies, employees, and associates of Jackson, Randall Sullivan delivers an intimate, unflinching, and deeply human portrait of a man who was never quite understood by the media, his fans, or even those closest to him. Untouchable promises to be a profound investigation into the enigma that was Michael Jackson.

Der Superstar in SEINEN Worten - Michael Jacksons einzige und einzigartige Autobiografie "Ich habe mir immer gewünscht, Geschichten erzählen zu können, Geschichten, die aus meiner Seele kommen. Ich würde am liebsten an einem Feuer sitzen und Geschichten erzählen – meine Zuhörer dazu bringen, Bilder zu sehen, zu weinen und zu lachen, sie gefühlsmäßig irgendwohin zu entführen mit den so täuschend einfach wirkenden Mitteln der Sprache. Keine Kostüme, kein Make-up, nichts, nur du und deine Stimme ..." Michael Jackson in Moonwalk. Am 25. Juni 2009 steht die Welt kurz still. Michael Jackson ist tot. "Moonwalk" nimmt uns noch einmal mit zurück in sein Leben: von den Anfängen der "Jackson Five" bis zu seinen größten Hits als Megastar. Ausführlich erzählt Michael Jackson von den Jahren in seiner Heimatstadt Gary, dem Verhältnis zu seiner Familie und späteren Freunden wie Diana Ross oder Paul McCartney. Erstaunlich offen gewährt er Einblicke in seine Arbeitsweise und spricht erstmals auch über die Schattenseiten seines Erfolges. Über die Angst, zu scheitern, die rufschädigenden Gerüchte und seine fast unerträgliche Einsamkeit. Mit „Moonwalk” offenbart Michael Jackson den Menschen hinter dem Star – und trifft damit mitten ins Herz. Der Mensch hinter dem Megastar – außergewöhnlich offen und sehr berührend.

Would British scientists really test sarin nerve poison on young volunteers and tell them it was research for a cure for colds? Would they really release Ecoli in Swindon and Southampton to try out germ warfare techniques? Even 50 years on, no-one's telling the whole story. Conspiracies and cover-ups, real or imagined, have shaped our world. Now leaked cables and declassified papers are rewriting the history of our times. More information must be good, but how do you tell truth from fiction?In this fresh, readable look at 50 conspiracy theories, Ian Shircore cuts through the fog and misinformation to deliver a balanced analysis of the key facts behind unsettling suspicions that litter our recent past. Today's new evidence - from WikiLeaks, freedom of information requests and declassified archives - has solved some classic mysteries. Yet it raises more questions than ever about the assassinations of the 1960s, the dirty secrets of the late 20th century and the earth-shaking events of recent years. Once you've seen what WikiLeaks has revealed about the radioactive poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko, you won't be so sure about the British secret service. Once you've weighed the evidence yourself, you may well decide there was a Second Yorkshire Ripper, that cricketing hero Bob Woolmer was murdered and that rock icon Jim Morrison's death in Paris was anything but straightforward.

For many years, conspiracy theories have been among the most popular story elements in Hollywood films. According to the “conspiracy culture,” Government, Big Business, the Church, even aliens—all of which, bundled together, comprise the ubiquitous “Them”—are concealing some of the biggest secrets in American and world history. From The Manchurian Candidate (1962) to JFK (1991), The Matrix (1999) to The Da Vinci Code (2006), this decade-by-decade history explores our fascination with paranoia. The work paints a vivid picture of several of the more prevalent conspiracy theories and the entertainment they have inspired, not only in theatrical films but also in such television series as The X-Files, Lost and V.

Talking at Trena's

Everyday Conversations at an African American Tavern

Author: Reuben A. Buford May

Publisher: NYU Press

ISBN: 0814756727

Category: Social Science

Page: 210

View: 7606

Talking at Trena's is an ethnography conducted in a bar in an African American, middle-class neighborhood on Chicago's southside. May's work focuses on how the mostly black, working- and middle-class patrons of Trena's talk about race, work, class, women, relationships, the media, and life in general. May recognizes tavern talk as a form of social play and symbolic performace within the tavern, as well as an indication of the social problems African Americans confront on a daily basis. Following a long tradition of research on informal gathering places, May's work reveals, though close description and analysis of ethnographic data, how African Americans come to understand the racial dynamics of American society which impact their jobs, entertainment—particularly television programs—and their social interactions with peers, employers, and others. Talking at Trena's provides a window into the laughs, complaints, experiences, and strategies which Trena's regulars share for managing daily life outside the safety and comfort of the tavern.

In Outrageous Invasions: Celebrities' Private Lives, Media, and the Law, Professor Robin D. Barnes examines the role and nature of privacy in Western democracies. Celebrities are routinely subjected to stalking, harassment, invasion of privacy, and defamation. These occurrences are often violations of their constitutional rights. Professor Barnes addresses growing concerns about the widespread immunity from liability enjoyed by United States tabloid publishers. Outrageous Invasions chronicles these experiences and the legal battles waged by celebrities in both the United States and European Union against a press corps that continuously invades their private lives. Professor Barnes analyzes doctrinal developments in cases from the United States Supreme Court and the High Courts of Europe. These cases demonstrate that American celebrities are entitled to, but not receiving, the same protections as their European counterparts. In Outrageous Invasions, Professor Barnes explains the value of the rights of the individual to democratic nations. She notes the importance of insuring appropriate protection for freedom of expression and associational freedom through meaningful regulation in the instances when speech rights collide with equally important values such as privacy and equality.
