A Right Old Panning

It seems that yesterday's screening on VH1 of "Man In The Mirror, The Michael Jackson Story" was not a total critical success.

Critics have universally panned the film.

It labours under the insurmountable burden of not being authorised, hence none of Jackson's music was used in it.

The film even uses footage of the planes crashing in to the Twin Towers, quite what that has to do with Michael Jackson is not clear.

The conclusion is that if you are looking for a meaningful insight into the life and mind of Michael Jackson, you won't find it in this film.

The Circus Comes To Town

In yet another complaint, filed on Thursday, Michael Jackson's attorneys have noted that they have not received lists of items seized during searches by the authorities; as they prepare for the forthcoming Michael Jackson trial for child molestation in January.

The complaint was filed last week, as with everything else, it was under seal. Judge Rodney Melville unsealed the complaint yesterday.

There are more seals in this case than in a circus!

The defence team are short of around 70 search warrants in the case, and 50 affidavits.

The prosecution responded by saying that they are providing information as quickly as possible.

Michael Jackson has won another award, this time it is not for music; instead he has been awarded Company Magazine's most sought after accolade.

He has been voted "unsexiest man of the year", in a survey of the magazine's readers.

I suppose the old showbiz saying should be applied here, "any publicity is good publicity".

The Prequel To The Sequel To The Finale

Those of you who have not had enough of Michael Jackson, can now see his life story on VH1 on Friday.

The film is called "Man in the Mirror: The Michael Jackson Story"; and will take the viewer on a journey through Michael Jackson's life, starting in Motown up to his January 2004 court appearance.

This therefore leaves plenty of opportunities for at least one follow up film. This film will either end on a high note with Jackson being acquitted, or end with him going to jail; which in turn leaves room for a third film, portraying his time in jail and his life after his release as he tries to rebuild a shattered career.

Monday started the week with another outbreak of fighting, between the defence and prosecution teams in the forthcoming Michael Jackson trial.

Michael Jackson's defence team on Monday noted that Tom Sneddon, for the prosecution, had violated a gag order.

They cite the remarks made by Sneddon to a recent district Attorneys' conference. He was quoted as saying that "We sent letters to some people saying we intended to call them as witnesses in order to keep them off TV."

Tom Sneddon denies that this broke the gag order.

So it seems, as I have already noted on this site, that the trial is going to be dominated by diversions relating to the gagging order rather than the issues that are meant to be discussed; namely, is Michael Jackson guilty of child molestation or not?

Take the gag off say I!

Going to The Dogs

It is reported that Michael Jackson's ex wife, Debbie Rowe, has put her home up for sale; apparently she needs a larger house to accommodate her 6 dogs.

If you are interested in buying her Beverly Hills home; it has 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a pool, a sauna and a bar.

Yours for $2M.

A Touch of The Verbals

Human nature reared its ugly head the other day, as Janet Jackson was subject to verbal abuse by an unknown male.

The man reportedly approached her in the Concord Club Los Angeles, and started to harangue her about her brother Michael.

Not unreasonably, Janet Jackson took this personally; and made a lunge towards him. Fortunately a security guard intervened, and removed the man from the club.
