Jackson On Live 8?

Hip-hop impresario Russell Simmons, a co-producer of Saturday's Live 8 concert in Philadelphia, is clearly an optimist.

He is hoping to get Michael Jackson to perform at the Saturday Live 8 show.

Jackson is currently on vacation in Bahrain.

Simmons is reportedly trying to get Jackson and Prince to join the current lineup of stars on stage, for a finale rendition of the 1985 Live Aid anthem "We are the World," which Jackson co-wrote.


"They haven't said no. Until they say no, I'll keep dreaming,".

Jackson Flies To Bahrain

Michael Jackson is on holiday in the Gulf kingdom of Bahrain, as a guest of honour of the king's son.

Jackson who arrived from Europe on a private plane on Wednesday night; it is reported that he is there to relax.

"(Jackson) wants to be away from the U.S. press and he chose Bahrain to rest after what he went through in the past few months,".

Jackson is there at the personal invitation of Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the king's son, and is staying in one of the royal palaces.

Jackson In Paris

It is reported that Michael Jackson left Neverland on 19th June, and went to Paris in order to try to restart his career.

He is allegedly in discussions with a number of directors, including Mark Stewart (son of Jackie Stewart), regarding the possible production of a documentary.

Why did Jackson only issue a thank you message a few days ago, when he had already left the country?

Joe Jackson's Money Worries

Joe Jackson, Michael Jackson's father, is reportedly worried about his son's finances following the trial.

Joe is reportedly worried that Michael Jackson has been left physically and financially crippled by the stress of the trial, and the poor advice from those close to him.


"Am I worried about his financial problems? Yes, I am! If he didn't trust the wrong people, he wouldn't have been in this situation."

A cynic might suggest that part of his fear is based on the realisation that Michael will not be making as much money for him (Joe) as he did in the past.

Jackson To Give Interview

Michael Jackson is reportedly going to give a US TV interview, for a $10M fee.

Needless to say the networks are trying to outbid each other, for the rights to interview him.

If the interview goes ahead Jackson, mindful of the Bashir debacle, will lay down the rules about editorial control.

Jackson Starved Himself

Michael Jackson starved himself during his trial, he allegedly only drank water for 30 days.

This caused his weight to drop to 94 pounds.
