Well, if you click here you can read how Michael Jackson has apparently lost his mind, once and for all.

Selected juicy quotes:

"'The recording companies really, really do conspire against the artists – they steal, they cheat, they do everything they can,' Jackson said in a rare public appearance. '(Especially) against the black artists.'

"He also singled out Sony Music chairman Tommy Mottola, saying he was 'mean, he's a racist, and he's very, very, very devilish.' Jackson also accused Mottola of using 'the n-word' when speaking about an unidentified black Sony artist.

"Sony produced Jackson's last album, "Invincible," which has had disappointing sales despite an estimated $25 million in promotion. The singer's fans say Sony didn't do enough to launch the album. Others in the industry say sagging sales were indicative of Jackson's declining appeal.

"'If you fight for me, you're fighting for all black people, dead and alive,' Jackson said, adding: 'We have to put a stop to this incredible injustice.'

"Outside Sony's Manhattan headquarters, about 150 fans gathered later Saturday, hoisting signs reading "Please Sony, stop killing the music," "Terminate Tommy Mottola," and "Invincible is Unbreakable".

"(After he showed up at the 'protest') Jackson held up a poster with three boxes marked "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" – with an image of himself in the "The Good" box and Mottola's face with devilish horns in "The Bad" box, while Mottola's real image adorned "The Ugly" box."


I usually hate to make fun of those with mental illnesses, but Michael Jackson has to be an exception. $25 million to promote a shitty album that didn't sell squat and he blames his record company? Fighting for MJ is fighting for all black people? The break with reality has become complete.

This media circus is going to be entertaining, to say the least.

This is funny, since Jackson owns the music catlog for the Beatles, Bob Dylan and has/will soon acquire a huge chunk of Nashville stuff.

It's too bad, he really was great when he was young. The cutoff point for me is Off The Wall, although Thriller had it's moments.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone who hates themselves as much as Michael Jackson. He's carved every black out of himself the almost every human aspect. He's lightened his color, no all the sudden he's Malcom X and the blackest man on the block. It's a shame.

What I've also heard is that in order to leave Sony, Mitolla is forcing Jackson to give up all the rights to all of his albums (Off the Wall to Dangerous) and half the rights to his Bettles collection. In essence, this would leave Jackson with nothing since he used the other half of the Bettles music to build his ranch.

I'm not a huge fan anymore, buy forcing someone to give up their life's work over contractual differences seems a bit much. MODO, of course.

Well... Jackson puts out a crappy album and then blames his record company for not promoting it properly?

If that's true, he deserves the legal hassles, in my book.

Anyway... “very, very, very devilish”? Is Michael sure he only wants to use three verys? *sigh*... It's like listening to a child speak.

Edit: And you ever notice how certain preachers won't stand up for anything unless it's a black person claiming to have been discriminated against? I'm not racist by any means, don't get me wrong. But as a twenty-year-old white male, if I were suddenly viciously attacked by a black man and left for dead, I guarantee you Rev. Jesse Jackson wouldn't give a damn. Hell, he'd probably excuse me of trying to start something with my attacker. And that's sad. Reverse discrimination.

I think the funniest thing of all is that only 150 people showed up to see Michael. 20 years ago if he made a public appearence in NYC, thousands and thousands of people would come to see him. I also still think its funny that Michael guest voiced the Simpsons but wouldn't let them use his name in the credits thinking it would hurt his public image, thats funny because since then like everyone has been on the show (The Who, all the living Beatles + Linda, Aerosmith, nearly every actor/actress living)

I think he now relizes that N*Sync,Britney Spears,people trying to be popular and people stuck in the 80's are the only ones that care about him.

The Bettles? Who the hell are the the Bettles? I KNOW you are not talking about the BEATLES. Because calling the Bettles the BEATLES would be grounds for a flogging.

You disrespect the fab four you disrepect the Ffej. Now can you dig it?

Wow... a has-been superstar artist bitches about a crappy album and a record company? THIS IS HUGE NEWS! I BETTER RUN HOME RIGHT NOW AND MAIL ANGRY LETTERS TO SONY!

Feh... Michael Jackson is a rich, rich, rich man [3 riches], or at least he should be considering how many records he's sold. If he's stupid enough to NOT save his money, or make sure he got all that was owed to him, he's a freakin' moron...and deserves these hassles.

From what I understand, let's just say Michael is a freakin' moron...and deserves these hassles. I guess it shouldn't be too surprising. I mean, a man who buys his own amusement park and Elephant Man bones is not exactly frugal with his money.

He's worse than desperate - he's become irrelevant.

I say he deserves it for outbidding Paul McCartney for the Beatles' catalog two decades ago.

This is an urban legend. Michael Jackson never did buy the Elephant Man's bones.

But if a Black male was viciously attacked by a white man and left for dead, would the great Rev. Fallwell give a damn? Or how about Billy Graham? Or the Pope? And THAT'S sad... Reverse discrimination... HA!

Oh, and FUCK Paul McCartney. He's such a pompous asshole, and didn't have half the talent that John did. Read John's letters to Paul and vice versa, and you'll have a whole new perspective on "Sir Paul".
