Michael Jackson: Child Star Book CoverMichael Jackson: Child Star (Book)
Released: 01-12-2003

'Michael Jackson: Child Star' book written by Theresa Overbey is released in the USA by publisher Mitchell Lane Publishers.

Theresa Overbey is an author who enjoys writing for children. She has written various biographies and reference articles for all age groups. In addition, Theresa has a nursing degree and has written articles for several nursing journals. She and her husband Randy are foster parents and reside in Middletown, Delaware.

Michael Jackson was a musical phenomenon at the age of five. By the time he reached early adulthood he was a living legend. But despite all of his musical successes, he lived with many personal and professional struggles. He was born into a large family.

The Jacksons lived in a three-room home in a poor neighborhood. His father was domineering and pushed Michael and his brothers hard to make their band, the Jackson 5, succeed. Michael spent his childhood working while other kids were playing. He grew up into a shy, troubled young man whose music was his focus.

Through all of his problems, Michael never forgot his dream that the music he created would help change the world. Today, that dream is still the driving force in his life.

Number Ones (Off The Wall) CD Album CoverNumber Ones (CD Album + DVD)
Released: 17-11-2003

Sony UK have issued a new press release for Michael Jackson's forthcoming greatest hits album, 'Number Ones'. There will be four covers for the 'Number Ones' album released, a 'Off The Wall', 'Thriller', 'Bad' and 'HIStory' cover.

The press release, including track listing is below. Please note that the specified track listing does not apply for the USA.

Michael Jackson, is gearing up for another phenomenal release; 'Number Ones' - a retrospective of his national and international No.1 hits; an undeniably thrilling collection on both CD and DVD - release date in the UK on November 17.

'Number Ones' was Jackson's first proper compilation album with Sony, after the release of 'HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I' in 1995 (and after the re-release of that album as 'Greatest Hits: HIStory, Volume I'). The album included Jackson singles that reportedly reached number 1 in charts around the world.

The CD album, 'Number Ones' begins with a track from one of Jackson's penultimate albums, 'Off The Wall' which was the first record by a solo artist to contain four Top Ten hits. 'Number Ones' rounds out with 'You Rock My World', the mid-tempo winner that marked Jackson's return on 2001s 'Invincible'.

And the future begins now. Included on 'Number Ones' is the brand new single 'One More Chance' (written by R. Kelly) - release date on November 22 - a subtle return to Jackson's roots as a heart-wrenching balladeer.

The DVD, 'Number Ones' will be released with 4 different covers and contains fifteen short films that are easily the ultimate in videography since the invention of the art form.

For the discerning Jackson fan and pop music aficionado, four limited edition covers of 'Number Ones' have been commissioned. Each cover portrays Jackson, during four different eras, in a signature pose, including the glittered-socks and one-glove days of 'Thriller', and his often-duplicated tip-toe move, the four limited edition Jackson covers are each as special as the music contained within.

It is more than just a collection of greatest hits; it is a timeline, a history lesson, a journey, an escapade, and a cacophony of rich, textured, vibrant sounds. It is a lifetime of music. And at the same time, 'Number Ones' ushers in a new era for Jackson's unmatchable accomplishments.

The Magic & The Madness Book CoverThe Magic & The Madness (Book)
Released: 05-09-2003

'The Magic & The Madness' updated book of Michael Jackson will be released on September 5 in the UK by publisher Sidgwick and written by J. Randy Taraborrelli.

So much has now been said and written about the life and career of Michael Jackson that it has become almost impossible to disentangle the man from the myth. Recent revelations are only the latest instalments of a saga that began decades ago.

This book is the fruit of over 30 years of research and hundreds of exclusive interviews with a remarkable level of access to the very closest circles of the Jackson family - including Michael himself.

Cutting through tabloid rumours, J. Randy Taraborrelli traces the real story behind the Michael Jackson we see and hear today, from his drilling as a child star through the blooming of his talent to his ever-changing personal appearance and bizarre publicity stunts.

This major biography includes the behind-the-scenes story to many of the landmarks in Jackson's life: his legal and commercial battles, his marriages to Lisa Marie Presley and Debbie Rowe, his passions and addictions, his children. Objective and revealing, it carries the hallmarks of all of Taraborrelli's best-sellers: impeccable research, brilliant storytelling and definitive documentation.

Hilhaven Lodge: The Photo Booth Pictures Book CoverHilhaven Lodge: The Photo Booth Pictures (Book)
Released: 01-09-2003

'Hilhaven Lodge: The Photo Booth Pictures' book written by Robert Evans is released by publisher PowerHouse Books.

Film and music video director Ratner's ('Rush Hour; The Family Man') collection of four-panel snapshots show many of show biz's brightest as they grin, leer or vamp it up for the black-and-white photo booth in his Hilhaven Lodge (the former home of Ingrid Bergman). Naomi Watts, Chelsea Clinton, Michael Jackson and dozens of others pose happily; Brooke Shields exposes a very pregnant belly, Brendan Fraser and Don Rickles make funny faces and Paul Walker hoists his middle finger.

Britney Spears appears cutely disheveled in a pair of glasses and more clothing than she usually sports by far, while Rod Stewart looks like he's been carved out of oak. Famous folks seem pretty ordinary without all the makeup artists and airbrushing, which makes this a strangely compelling book to thumb through.

'Hilhaven Lodge: The Photo Booth Pictures' is comprised of wacky and outrageous picture strips of Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Colin Farrell, Heath Ledger, Heidi Klum, Shaquille O'Neal, Chris Tucker, Kim Cattrall, Jackie Chan, Dino De Laurentiis, Clive Davis, Aaliyah, Edward Norton, Salma Hayek, Quincy Jones, Ralph Fiennes, Rod Stewart, Val Kilmer, Liv Tyler, Harvey Keitel, Jay-Z, John C. Reilly, Russell Simmons, Nicolas Cage, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, Jack Osbourne, Paris Hilton, Tommy Hilfiger, Tony Shafrazi, Mariah Carey, Matthew McConaughey, Chelsea Clinton, Rebecca Gayheart, Norman Lear, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Robert Downey Jr., and many, many more!

Interview Special Music Issue! - Michael Jackson Interviews Pharrell Williams (Magazine)
Released: 08-2003

Interview Magazine Cover (08-2003)This interview, which took place in early June 2003, actually came about as the magazine was planning a piece on Pharrell Williams, who at the time was an upstart producer from Virginia.

This 'Interview' (special music issue!) magazine was released in August 2003 in the USA and it features interviews with Coldplay, Nina Simone, Christina Aguilera, Seal, Pharrell Williams, Mandy Moore, Ozzy Osbourne, Jewel, Sting, and Thalia, plus features on Led Zeppelin, Natalie Imbruglia, Chris Cooper, Sean Paul, Charlotte Martin, Nikki Reed, Nora-Jane Noone, and others, plus fashion, reviews, and much more!

As the editors were arranging the story with Williams, he casually mentioned that he'd always wanted to speak to Michael Jackson, who had been in the news after appearing in British journalist Martin Bashir's infamous television documentary, 'Living With Michael Jackson', which portrayed the singer at his most bizarre.

A complex chain of e-mails and phone calls ensued, messages were passed, reputations were vouched for, and a few days later, Jackson's office called to say that he would do the interview. You can tell by the art Pharrell was talking that he was very emotional to talk to Michael.
