Black Or White - The Black Or White Remixes Maxi-CD CoverRecently Added To My Collection. 14-05-'17
Black Or White - The Black Or White Remixes (Maxi-CD)

'Black Or White' is the first single taken from Jackson's album 'Dangerous', released on November 8th, 1991 in the USA on the Epic label.

Written, composed, and arranged by Jackson with the rap lyrics by Bill Bottrell, it is a song promoting interracial romance, i.e. the lyrics "if you're thinking about my baby, it don't matter if you're black or white." The song features an introduction on guitar by guitarist Slash.

First single by an American to enter the UK singles chart at no.1 since Elvis Presley’s 'It’s Now Or Never' in 1960. Spent two weeks in pole position.

"For me, the best thing about 'Black Or White'," said Bottrell, "was that his (Michael's) scratch vocal remained untouched throughout the next year (of work on 'Dangerous' album), and ended up being used on the finished song."

The maxi-cd contains 5 remixes of 'Black Or White', remixed by Robert Clivillés & David Cole.

My maxi-cd is printed in Japan with the series number: ESCA 5581.

Track list:

1. Black Or White (The Clivillés & Cole House Club Mix) - 7:33
2. Black Or White (The Clivillés & Cole House Dub Mix) - 6:27

While Supreme’s IG post confirms the drop of this collection, apparel pieces and accessories from the capsule, details have yet to be released by Supreme. Expect the brand to announce more news of this release as well as detailed images of the collection in the coming days.

Gottfried Helnwein Photo Of Michael Jackson On Auction. 11-05-'17

A photo of Michael Jackson taken by artist and photographer Gottfried Helnwein is currently on auction for €4,000.00 and the auction will take place on June 9. The picture was taken on July 3rd, 1988.

Gottfried Helnwein (born 8 October 1948) is an Austrian-Irish visual artist. He has worked as a painter, draftsman, photographer, muralist, sculptor, installation and performance artist, using a wide variety of techniques and media.

His work is concerned primarily with psychological and sociological anxiety, historical issues and political topics. His subject matter is the human condition. The metaphor for his art is dominated by the image of the child, particularly the wounded child, scarred physically and emotionally from within. His works often reference taboo and controversial issues from recent history, especially the Nazi rule and the horror of the Holocaust. As a result, his work is often considered provocative and controversial.

Helnwein studied at the University of Visual Art in Vienna (Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Wien). He lives and works in Ireland and Los Angeles.

'They're Trying To Murder Me': Michael Sent Chilling Letters To A Friend Just Weeks Before His Death.

Michael Jacobshagen
Michael Jacobshagen

Michael Jackson predicted he would be murdered in handwritten notes he gave to a friend weeks before his death of a drugs overdose in 2009.

The letters will bolster the belief of many, including Jackson's daughter Paris and sister LaToya, that the King of Pop was unlawfully killed.

In the 13 messages he declared: 'They are trying to murder me' and 'I am scared about my life.'

Their existence has been revealed for the first time by German businessman Michael Jacobshagen, 34 – who maintained a two-decade-long friendship with the star – in an interview with broadcaster Daphne Barak for Australian TV show Sunday Night.

Jacobshagen tells Barak how a tearful Jackson called him from a Las Vegas hideaway. The star was preparing for a tour at London's O2 but begged his friend to fly from Germany to the US to be with him.

'He was in emotional meltdown saying, 'They are going to murder me,' Jacobshagen recalled. After he flew out and spent three days with the troubled star, Jackson handed Jacobshagen the notes. Jacobshagen said that the notes kept telling him 'they' were trying to murder Jackson.

The singer never clarified who 'they' were but some notes refer to concert promoters AEG, which was organising concerts in London that he was shortly due to perform.

One said: 'AEG. Make so much pressure to me… I'm scared about my life.'

The 'Thriller' singer was found dead just weeks later.

The official cause of death was an overdose of the sedative propofol. His personal doctor Conrad Murray served two years of a four-year jail sentence after being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for administering a lethal dose of the drug.

But Jacobshagen claims Jackson had been using propofol for more than a decade to treat his insomnia.

He says he has gone public with the notes now to support Jackson's daughter Paris, 19, who recently claimed her father was murdered. The interview will be broadcast next month in Australia, the US and other markets to coincide with the anniversary's of the star's death.

Teddy Riley Talks K-Pop And What He Learned From Michael Jackson. 05-05-'17

Teddy RileyThere are few people who can claim to have birthed a genre. Teddy Riley, the man behind New Jack Swing, is one of them. The 49-year-old music producer is behind some of the biggest hits from the late 80's and 90's including Keith Sweat‘s 'I Want Her', Johnny Kemp‘s 'Just Got Paid', Bobby Brown‘s 'My Perogative' and Doug E. Fresh and the Get Fresh Crew’s 'The Show'. Not to mention, he also co-produced Michael Jackson's 'Jam', 'Remember The Time' and 'In The Closet'. As a member of Guy and Blackstreet, Riley was also able to show off his singing talents in songs like 'Don’t Leave Me', 'No Diggity', 'I Like', and 'Take Me There' with Mýa and Mase.

You’ve started working with more K-pop artists as well. What made you decide to do that?

Yes. I decided to do that when I was introduced to K-pop back in 2008, 2007. I happened to go to Korea just to check out the scenes and I did a press conference and people really enjoyed it and it just kind of gave me a presence out there to where I said I want to go out and make some music. And I did it.

You mentioned Michael Jackson… in a Billboard interview, you said that when you were around him it felt like going to college because you were learning so much. What was the most important lesson you learned from Michael Jackson?

Well the most important thing that I have learned is how to write to piano more-or-less than a drum machine and synthesizers and all of that stuff. So the traditional way of writing is you get to a piano or you get a band in the room and you just come up with ideas and you tell the guitar player or the bass player to play this, let’s go this way or the singer will sing a few lines and the guitar player or the keyboard player would come up with something that will accompany the lines and the idea and that’s the traditional way of writing. Most times, people, have it already done and they start writing to it. That’s not traditional, it’s not organic. It’s still writing but it’s not as organic as how the traditional folks did it back in the day with just a piano or just writing it to frets and I’ve seen and I’ve witnessed all of that. I’ve witnessed having a session with forty to sixty to a hundred piece orchestra.

I’ve been there when they did 'Heal The World', and they had the whole full orchestra and when I saw that I said man, “I want that too Michael. Which song can we do that for?” And we wound up doing that for the song that we did called “Someone Put Your Hand Out.” And it was just amazing having the composer, Jeremy Lubbock, just write the string parts and the whole orchestra parts for that song. We also did it again on the 'Invincible' album, song 'Don’t Let Go Of My Hands' and there’s another one, 'Don’t Walk Away'. These songs, you know, that’s college, working with an orchestra. You can’t get no better, you can’t get more organic than that.

Navi GoldLifetime's Michael Jackson biopic will no doubt get people once again talking about the King of Pop.

In the first-look trailer for the upcoming film 'Michael Jackson: Searching For Neverland', we get a glimpse of the last few years of MJ's life.

The movie, which will be told through the eyes of his bodyguards Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard , is based on the two men's 2014 best-selling book 'Remember The Time: Protecting Michael Jackson In His Final Days'. According to People , it will highlight Jackson's role as a father.

In the biopic, Jackson is played by Navi , a prominent Michael Jackson impersonator. Chad L. Coleman plays Whitefield and Sam Adegoke will play Beard.

"People had no idea the kind of stuff Mr. Jackson's been through all his life," Coleman says in the trailer while talking to Beard. "He didn't want to be the King of Pop. He just wants to be Mike."

Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland is set to premiere on Lifetime on Memorial Day.
