So glad to hear that the show is (so far) a commercial, critical, and fan success.
For those who aren’t familiar with Broadway, the show is currently in “previews,” meaning that it’s basically not 100% finished. Between now and the official opening in January, the show will go through revisions...

I know people have been critical of the Estate’s licensed merch (and for good reason, since most of it sucks), but the brand-new collection is actually pretty great in my opinion. The Invincible t-shirt, the chromatic blue shirt, and the white crew neck are all pretty dope.
Meeting the Chandlers.
I firmly believe that Michael would still be here with us had they not so utterly ruined his life. Had they not been around, his drug dependence wouldn’t have exacerbated, meaning June 25, 2009, wouldn’t have happened. I’d gladly sacrifice everything on HIStory to save MJ...
Of course. Trust me, I’m not someone to say that contemporary artists are comparable to those who had to rely entirely on physical sales. I just had to note that Adele is a commercial force, and to release anything in her shadow almost guarantees disaster. I’d rather them finally get MJ another...
Exact quote from TIFF 2017, when asked about a project celebrating Dangerous: “Well, it might not be Dangerous 25 at this point, it might be Dangerous 30. But yeah, we definitely wanna get to that.” Obviously it’s a bummer, but let’s not pretend they said something they didn’t say.
It’s a bummer for sure, but there was never an official announcement for D30, or even any credible rumors, so it’s not like I had any expectations for it. Plus, I’m honestly bored of these corny anniversary reissues. Just do what McCartney’s been doing and choose an album to celebrate every now...
Let’s say you’re invited to participate in a famous vocalist ranking, and you’re appearing on MJ’s behalf. You’re allowed to bring one piece of media that you feel represents Michael at his best. It could be a song, a live performance, a rehearsal sound bite, whatever you wish, from any era you...
I don’t have a full list, but it’s my understanding that the vast majority of post-trial songs aren’t finished. There are a few that could come out with some polishing, but most would have to be repurposed as duets or features.
Not defending them for issuing fraudulent songs, but this won’t happen. It’s not about doing the right thing, it’s about the multi-million dollar withdrawal process, PR nightmare, and floodgate of lawsuits that would come their way if they pulled the Cascio tracks from circulation. Obviously...
I have very, very little interest in anything by the J5 or the Jacksons. Some songs here and there are great, and I like most of Triumph, but I can’t be bothered with everything else. I think being introduced to MJ first really spoiled my perspective, because I just don’t find any of the other...
