    Default MJ's a "businessman"?

    What the hell... I was just reading up on his wiki and it said:

    Michael Joseph Jackson (born August 29, 1958) is an American recording artist, entertainer, and businessman.
    Since when was he a businessman? Surely it should be replaced by singer-songwriter? :/

    oh yeah..right co-owning one of the biggest music publishing companies in the world..is not really business..
    Sony/ATV, a joint venture between Sony Corp (6758.T: Quote, Profile, Research) and pop star Michael Jackson, expects more music catalogues to be put up for sale this year as people look to cash in profits in a slowing economy, said CEO Martin Bandier in a telephone interview.

    "To the extent that large acquisitions become available, Sony/ATV is in a particularly good place," he said. "It's hard to overpay for a great Picasso...if you're buying quality music that will last for generations. Great songs are a rarity."

    Sony/ATV is a traditional music publisher which makes money every time a piece of music is used on a variety of outlets including radio, movies, live performances, advertising as well as a share from recorded music sales.

    Michael P. Schulhof, president and CEO, Sony Corporation of America, said: "Michael Jackson is not only the most successful entertainer in history; he is also an astute businessman. Michael understands the importance of copyrights and the role they play in the introduction of new technologies. In joining us for this new venture, Michael recognizes Sony's leadership in developing and realizing new technologies that serve to expand the creative horizons of artists such as himself.

    He added, "To have Michael Jack son's song catalogues joined with ours will enable both Sony Music and Michael Jackson to aggressively build on a publishing portfolio filled with songs that are acknowledged as the cornerstones of popular music today."

    The fact is that great businessmen never talk about their businesses that much. That's how it is with Michael, too. He wants to separate his businesses from his music career.

    Also Neverland has actually nothing to do with his music career so I'm not wondering why he thinks he doesn't have to give any statement of it. He has hardly ever given any statements if it hasn't anything to do with the music.

    i totally agree. i remember it being recorded that MJ once said that talking about these things is 'tacky'. that was his word he used. MJ has been noted to be better than steel when keeping his word. so...what he says about talking about business will never change. so..it's safe to say, that whatever we think about what's going on in his life is offbase from what's really happening. we're only guessing. all that matters that we know is, he's still going strong. also..people in the media tend to be envious of someone who is able to be so secretive, so the media tends to paint the worst case scenario for him cus people tend to hate secrets. and they're envious. people don't sue people this way and this often unless they're envious. and they have to have something they're envious of. and MJ has something they're envious of.

    That is so true.... I'm glad they have the businessman on there. If you owned part of a music catalog that is worth billions, I say you are a bonafied businessman.... Go ahead Michael with your BAD self...
