Michael Jackson Marriage 'Was My Attempt To Save Him,' Says Lisa Marie Presley. 21-02-'20

Lisa Marie PresleyLisa Marie Presley claimed that her marriage to Michael Jackson was her 'attempt to save him' in an unearthed interview from 2003.

The daughter of Elvis said that she was 'sucked in' by Jackson's 'poor me' persona and took it upon herself to try and turn his life around.

Lisa Marie revealed that Jackson was first in touch with her when she was a teenager but at the time she was in a relationship with Danny Keough, who would go on to be her first husband.

She claimed that she had no interest in Jackson at the time but years later a mutual friend put them back in touch.

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, Lisa Marie said: "He was very real with me off the bat.

"He immediately went into this whole explanation of what he knew people thought of him and what the truth was."

Lisa Marie said that Jackson’s explanation had been persuasive: “You get sucked into the, ‘You poor, misunderstood person, you…’ I'm a sucker for that.”

She went on to say that after her first conversation with him, her perception had changed as he was funny and full of swear words.

The different persona in public seemed to work for Jackson, with Lisa Marie saying: "I think it worked for him to manipulate that image for a little while.

“The hyperbaric chamber thing and all that monkey s*** and the elephant s***. It made him mysterious, and I think he thought that was cool. But then it backfired, like it always does.”

The allegations of child abuse were to be made soon afterwards but Lisa Marie said that he was convincing in saying that it was an 'extortion attempt' and not something that had any base in fact.

She continued: "I believed him, because he was so convincing. I don't know... I just believed everything he said, for some reason.”

Lisa Marie said that Jackson only allowed a few people to see the 'real him' and that he struggled to keep up the persona.

She continued: “But when you do… He didn't get where he is because he's an idiot. You see a real person who's very much the opposite of what he was presenting.”

She married Jackson in 1994, amid the allegations by Jordan Chandler about sexual abuse, which was settled out of court with Jackson flexing his financial muscle.

Lisa Marie began to think that she would be the one to help him through this. She recalled: "I got into this whole, ‘I’m going to save you' thing.

"I thought all that stuff he was doing - philanthropy and the children thing and all this stuff - was awesome, and maybe we could save the world together.”

She then added: “OK. Hello. I was delusionary. I got some romantic idea in my head that I could save him and we could save the world.”

Lisa Marie split from Jackson in 1996, citing irreconcilable differences in their divorce but she claims that there was nothing that she saw that suggested he had been abusing children.

She said: "Otherwise I would have been the first one out there going, ‘You motherf*****, I’ve got children. But I never saw anything like that.”

Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch Has Been Pulled Off The Market. 18-02-'20

Michael Jackson’s famed Neverland Ranch has been pulled off the market after almost five years of price cuts, renovations, and a new name, Compass confirmed to Business Insider.

The rebranded Sycamore Valley Ranch was last asking $31 million – less than a third of its original asking price.
Jackson’s former ranch boasts a 12,598-square-foot main residence, two guest houses, a lake, a 50-seat movie theater, and a Disney-themed train station.

The seller declined Business Insider’s request for comment on whether they were planning on relisting the ranch.

Originally listed for $100 million in 2015 under a new identity as Sycamore Valley Ranch, the ranch was discounted to $67 million two years later, and then relisted again for $31 million in 2019.

National Rhythm & Blues Hall Of Fame Museum
Michael Jackson’s Neverland Valley Ranch – 5225 Figueroa Mountain Road, Los Olivos, California.

The 2,700-acre property in Los Olivos, California, where Jackson lived for more than 15 years, includes a French-Normandy style main residence, two guest houses, a lake, a 50-seat movie theater, a 14-foot lagoon-style pool, a dance studio, barns, staff facilities, and a Disney-themed train station.

Kyle Forsyth of Compass, one of the former listing agents for the ranch, told Business Insider that the agents representing the ranch found interested potential buyers, but no deal could be reached with the seller, Colony Capital.

Colony Capital, the private investment firm that manages the ranch, “has not re-listed and recent inquiries for showings have been declined or gone unanswered,” Forsyth said. Colony Capital declined Business Insider’s request for comment for this story.

Jackson, who bought the property for $19.5 million in 1987, defaulted on a loan after financial hardships and entered Neverland into an ownership agreement with Colony Capital in 2008 for $23 million, according to ABC News.

Taj JacksonTaj Jackson's Update On His Documentary. 18-02-'20

Taj Jackson just updated his GoFundMe page with the following:

Here to clear up some minor confusion.

The project will DEFINITELY cover the allegations. What I promised in 2019, will still be covered. 🙂
That was the main reason why I first wanted to do this way back in 2009.
Without addressing these rumors and allegations, my uncle’s name and legacy will never be COMPLETELY cleared.

The media’s constant lies, bullying and 30+ year attack on Michael Jackson and his name will also be heavily addressed. The public has been subconsciously brainwashed for decades on “Wacko Jacko” and “Weirdo” and “Freak” headlines. This stops now. Time to hold the main culprits accountable and expose them and their hatred.

In Holland I said during the Square One Q&A that the project had taken a slightly different tone since last update. This is true. Originally it was just about exposing and attacking the lies. However I have also decided to focus on “what Michael Jackson was really like” and “how all these lies affected him”.

That by no means meant that I was abandoning my original idea. Both need to exist to get the whole picture of Michael Jackson and to more importantly HUMANIZE him.
I also will be including some of his major charity work and humanitarianism. Which I believe is his true long lasting legacy.

One more thing….
Let me address production and distribution.
I would like nothing more to have a big distributor like a Netlix. That has ALWAYS been the plan. To have as many people see this as possible and for it to come out this year.
What I don’t want to do however is hand over control too early and the project turns out completely different than our goal. We all saw what happened with the Martin Bashir documentary and that originally was suppose to be a positive piece.
I really don’t trust words coming from the industry anymore. And neither would you if you knew all the behind the scenes drama and politics that we are dealing with daily. This is a chess game. In some small way I now know the crap my uncle had to deal with throughout his life.

In closing…
I am 200 percent committed to this project and fighting for THE TRUTH. If you truly knew how much I love and respect my uncle, you would understand. I just want to do right by him and make him proud.

That being said… I am always listening and thankful for all the info you guys send and share with me. Although I know 95 percent of it, sometimes I don’t and I want to cover all bases.

2020 is our year so let’s keep the faith.
And remember this is a marathon, and we will win it.

MoneyA Year Of Streaming 'MONEY'. 18-02-'20

A year ago, to fight against the so called Documentary 'Leaving Neverland', the MJ Vibe team decided to stream Michael Jackson’s song 'Money'. The song was selected back then from many fan suggestions on social media.

Day after day, the team has streamed the song and counted every single time we streamed it and in a year we have streamed 'Money' 103,674 times!

Our goal was to put the song in the charts to show the world that Dan Reed’s movie is just all about… MONEY!

Unfortunately, we did not succeed to put the song in the charts but we have contributed to the huge increase of Michael Jackson music streaming and we would like to thank not only the team but also all the fans who have streamed any Michael Jackson songs during this difficult year! We have kept Michael’s artistry at the top and his music has been listen more than any artists even after the fake documentary was aired!

But we are not ready to give up on the idea to bring 'Money' into the charts! We will need obviously your help as we cannot do it on our own!

Like last year, we will ask the fans to stream 'Money' from 6-13 March 2020, a Friday to Friday basis as all the charts are counted from Fridays.

Where to Stream 'Money'?
This has to be as official as possible. Select the song by Michael Jackson. No remix, no fan-made videos, just the official song.

You can stream 'Money' at Spotify, Pandora, Google Play Music, Apple Music, SoundCloud.

Please note that you will have to play it 100 times to count for 1 sale!

For YouTube, 150 streams count for 1 sale!

Or you can purchase the song on itunes directly! Every purchase will count for 1 sale!

On the single release, 'Part 1' is an edited version of the entire album track, while 'Part 2' is an edit of the faster-tempo second section.

The song was arranged by Mel Larson, Jerry Marcellino,James Carmichael & John Bahler. Produced by Jerry Marcellino & Mel Larson.

My promo single is printed in the UK with the series number: TMG 942.
