Let's Shut Up & Dance'Let’s Shut Up & Dance’ Tribute to Michael Jackson. 22-02-'19

As announced last August, The tribute project to Michael Jackson is now out!

Global Pop Superstars Jason Derulo, Lay Zhang (EXO) and NCT 127 Collaborate to Tell the World ‘Let’s Shut Up & Dance’ with new single, video.

7SIX9 Entertainment releases first single and music video Inspired by and Dedicated to the Art and Genius of Michael Jackson.

7SIX9 Entertainment today announced the release date for the single and video 'Let’s Shut Up & Dance' by global pop music superstar Jason Derulo, Lay Zhang (EXO) and NCT 127. On February 22, the video will have its broadcast premiere on MTV and will be available on YouTube. Written by Derulo, Ant Clemons, and written and produced by Bongo ByTheWay, Ali Prawl, Ray Key and Robot Scott, this is the first single from a four song EP and box set entitled 'The Greatest Dancer', inspired by and dedicated to the art and genius of Michael Jackson. The box set is scheduled for June 25, the 10th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s untimely death.

The song and accompanying video may serve as an homage to Jackson, but don’t be mistaken, it does not imitate. 'Let’s Shut Up & Dance' acknowledges and draws inspiration from many of the greats, and Derulo and his team morphed it with his own unique sound and style to create something fresh and new.

 

The video for 'Let’s Shut Up And Dance' was produced by FREENJOY, directed by Daniel Russell, choreographed by Danielle Polanco with assistant choreographers Jeremy Strong, Andrew Carter, with featured dancing by Derulo, Lay and NCT 127. It encompasses sweeping locations from dark alleys to lush international locales, evokes the mood of 'Black Or White', 'Bad' and even 'Smooth Criminal' and yet, those that have never seen those iconic Jackson works will still see innovative, infectious choreography to a song that has the same rhythmic sensibility and artistry that Jackson demanded.

Created as a short film, Derulo said, “I want people to get up and dance when they see this video. A lot of the dance and movement is intricate and showcases the talent that was pulled together for this – from Lay and NCT 127 to the amazing dancers.” The intricacies come from the dancers who were choreographed by veteran Danielle Polanco and span across the globe. “They all brought this crazy energy to each shoot – energy that I get inspired by; they’re the most incredible talents on the planet,” Derulo said.

The producers’ goals were to keep everything as authentic as possible: From the award-winning crew, to hiring the best underground street dancers and professionals, shooting in locations from South Korea, Ethiopia, Jamaica, London and Los Angeles, the video is meant to capture the marriage of music and dance on an epic, gritty and authentic cinematic scale.

Together, Derulo, Lay and NCT 127 have collaboratively put their own stamp on pop music and the enormity of visuals to celebrate the mastery of Jackson’s global, musical influence.

Michael Jackson Estate Hits HBO With $100M ‘Leaving Neverland’ Lawsuit. 21-02-'19

The Estate Of Michael Jackson
The Estate Of Michael Jackson

The burgeoning battle between the estate of Michael Jackson and HBO over the controversial 'Leaving Neverland' sex abuse documentary is moving into a full-scale legal war that could cost the premium caber up to $100 million.

“The Jackson Estate will seek all damages proximately caused by HBO’s reprehensible disparagement of Michael Jackson, which could exceed $100 million should HBO succeed in the damage it is intending to cause to the legacy of Michael Jackson,” said an injunction and arbitration seeking breach of contract complaint filed today by lawyers from Kinsella Weitzman Iser Kump & Aldisert LL and Freedman + Tailtelman LLP in L.A. Superior Court.

“Petitioners further pray that the arbitrator award punitive damages in the maximum amount permissible if and when Petitioners show their entitlement to such damages,” the 53-page filing adds.

Having premiered under a heavy police presence at the Sundance Film Festival last month, the Dan Reed directed 'Leaving Neverland' is set to debut on HBO on March 3 and 4.

“HBO breached its agreement not to disparage Michael Jackson by producing and selling to the public a one-sided marathon of unvetted propaganda to shamelessly exploit an innocent man no longer here to defend himself,” Jackson estate attorney Howard Weitzman told Deadline Thursday.“

“HBO could have and should have ensured that 'Leaving Neverland' was properly sourced, fact checked and a fair and balanced representation,” he added in language similar to a letter sent to HBO CEO Richard Plepler over a week ago. “Instead they chose to fund and produce a film where they knew the two subjects had for many years testified under oath and told family, friends and law enforcement that Mr. Jackson did nothing inappropriate to either of them.”

HBO did not respond to request for comment on today’s legal move.

However, HBO execs asserted earlier this month that they stood by the film and nothing was going to stop it from airing in early March. “The one thing I would say about this documentary is I would ask everybody to watch it and make their judgments after seeing it,” the premium cabler’s programming chief Casey Bloys asserted on February 21.

“Nearly four years after Michael died they suddenly changed their recollections, sued the Estate of Michael Jackson for hundreds of millions of dollars and had all of their lawsuits dismissed,” Weitzman continued in his statement attacking Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who claim in the film that they were sexually abused by the ‘Thriller’ superstar when they were children. “Yet they are still seeking money, having appealed. HBO and the director were well aware of their financial motives and that ample opposing facts are available from numerous sources, but made the unconscionable decision to bury any evidence casting doubt on their chosen narrative. Had they made an objective film it would have allowed viewers to make up their own minds about these allegations, instead of having a television network dictate to them that they must accept these false claims about Michael Jackson.”

Since it was announced in early January that 'Leaving Neverland' would open at Sundance, Jackson fans around the world have taken to social media and elsewhere to condemn the documentary.

Lisa Marie Presley Reveals All About Wild Sex With 'Screeching' Michael Jackson. 18-02-'19

Lisa Marie PresleyLisa Marie-Presley has revealed the reality of sex with Michael Jackson and told how he 'sang and screeched' his way to orgasm.

Elvis' daughter, who was married to the singer between 1994 and 1996, told a friend it was the best sex she'd ever had.

The revelations are included in book, 'Dark Lady' by Anthony Gregoreli, where it's claimed Lisa Marie insisted on wild sex with the King of Pop before they married - because she wanted to make sure he could fulfil his spousal duties.

Lisa Marie, now 51, said she and Michael were spending a weekend at Donald Trump's Florida mansion when she first pulled him into bed.

She told a pal they romped 'all night' and that the Thriller singer preferred having sex from a standing position.

"It was absolutely wild. He was slow getting started, then he just wanted more and more," she said.

Lisa Marie added that Michael liked to sing and shriek as they got intimate , which often left her in fits of giggles.

The pair first met in 1975 when a seven-year-old Lisa Marie attended Michael's concert in Las Vegas.

But a friend of the pair revealed their 'adult friendship' began in 1992.

While Lisa Marie was still married to musician Danny Keough, she was invited to move into the Neverland Valley Ranch.

Twenty days after divorcing Danny, Lisa Marie and Michael tied the knot in a top-secret ceremony in the Dominican Republic.

The daughter of Elvis and Priscilla supported Michael through the child abuse claims that emerged in 1993.

"I believed he didn't do anything wrong, and that he was wrongly accused and, yes, I started falling for him. I wanted to save him. I felt that I could do it," she said in 'The Magic And The Madness' by J. Randy Taraborrello.

After the allegations, Lisa-Marie had encouraged Michael to settle out of court and check into rehab when the stress left him self-medicating.

In January 1996 Lisa-Marie filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. During an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2010, the singer revealed she and Michael spent four years after their split trying to reconcile.

Michael was Lisa-Marie's second husband. After their divorce in 1996 she went on to marry Nicholas Cage, (2002-2004) and then Michael Lockwood (2006-2016).

Gyles Brandreth Recalls His Awkward Encounter With Michael Jackson. 17-02-'19

Gyles BrandrethSunday Brunch was full of celebrity name-dropping from the get-go today (February 17), kicking off with host Simon Rimmer remembering meeting Prince Charles and quickly being followed by actor Luke Treadaway recalling the time he met Prince the singer.

But it was presenter Gyles Brandreth who delivered the best story, as he told today's guests and hosts all about the time he awkwardly attempted to show off his moonwalk while in a lift with Michael Jackson himself.

"I was once caught in a lift with Michael Jackson," Gyles began, which is a solid start to any story.

"He was wearing gloves, the mask, and everything. I was with Uri Geller, who knew him, and we were going up in this lift and I thought, 'I'm not going to get much opportunity to meet Michael Jackson again'."

The 70-year-old then went on to explain how he "chatted away" to the star but received no reply, so he decided to take things to the next level.

"So I then thought I'd demonstrate my moonwalk," he continued. "It was quite restricted in the lift, sort of bumping into Uri at the same time, and then Michael Jackson got out at the end and didn't say a word.

"I said to the minder, 'That's a bit rude of Michael Jackson'," Gyles remembered. "He said, 'It's a Monday, Mr Jackson never speaks on a Monday'.

"Michael Jackson apparently never spoke on a Monday – conserved his energy."

MJ One‘Michael Jackson ONE’ Salutes The King Of Pop. 15-02-'19

Michael Jackson went from being the King of Pop to becoming one of the most posthumously revered entertainers in history, rivaled only by the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley. Jackson is a perfect fit for Cirque du Soleil production 'Michael Jackson ONE', because the gloved one was practically a one-man Cirque show himself. His history and beliefs lent themselves well to a thriller of an extravaganza with no shortage of what Jackson did best: dancing.

One of the reasons 'Michael Jackson One' succeeds is the decision to have four protagonists whose lives will be touched by Jackson’s spirit. Each character—Clumsy, Smarty Pants, Shy and Sneaky—receives a gift from Jackson that leads to them to acquiring new abilities. They find they have double slackline skills, or new martial arts or dancing prowess, or encounter a spangled glove that seems to have a life of its own. The tale unfurls against a high-tech backdrop of futuristic expressionist design and culminates in a battle of light versus darkness. Don’t try to fight the moistness in your eyes that will occur during the show’s most poignant moments.

Mandalay Bay, 7 & 9:30 p.m. Thurs.-Mon., starting at $69 plus tax and fee. 877.632.7580
