feel MJ News should be given to the public with accurate and honest, editing. And I'm NOT the Man.
Satan was once a good man too, but like Michael, he lost it.
Quit following Jackson, he's a sick ,sad nasty person.
The man (child in head) needs to get mental help, he is not well at all, and his music career has been over for years, get a life f'loon.
Trying to put this washed up sicko in the same class as Sinatra is a waste of time, Mikey is a pop singer and nothing else.
Yes Mikey is the king of pop, right next to Madonna and Brittney Spears, POP !

Actually he has sold more records than any other solo artist. He had the biggest selling albums in history, the biggest tours in history, the biggest contracts and endorsments in history, the biggest tv ratings in history, he set many chart records, hes won over 410 awards and over 161 records and achivments (making him the most awarded and achomplished artist in history), and he is the most famous person on the planet.

Hes way better tham Sinatra.

Those alligations were never proven.

And he is way more than a "pop" singer. He is an Icon and a legend.

I love proving you people worng.

How true, they know nothing of the music business. Michael Jackson is well respected among
his music peers and is indeed the second Best Selling Artist in the World. Those haters that want to tear him down are vultures feeding off of slime-journalism. A leopard will not change it's spots;and as you know donkeys like InDaHouse are stubborn. So I doubt they will ever come around
to our way of thinking.

Spoken like the leader of a cult.
"Our way of thinking"...... You're way, not intelligent people.

Michael is the pied piper , only those who follow a sickie, could be a sickie.

Wacko is the butt (no pun intended) of more jokes in the music biz than any other artist. Is that what you mean?

If thats the case, then why dose everyine in the buissness want to work with him. And why do they all publicly cite him as their influence, and immitate him in there stage performances and music and videos?

Wikipedia is not a reliable source. The list I gave was from the IFPI and was pread through out the internet. These are the facts.

Also if you know anything about the music buissness, you would know that no artist sold over 500 million records, and this list is quite in fact very accurate.

The IFPI releases info like that all the time. And they don't always put it on there website.

Just recently they released a statment about music piriting, but its not on their website.

They do it all the time.

Indeed. Quincy Jones is known to refer to him as "Stinky" which, as I understand the ghetto/gansta reference, means, "One who shites himself and doesn't bathe."

Way cool, huh?
