The New York Post reports LaToya Jackson’s ex-manager/husband Jack Gordon is making shocking allegations against her and brother Michael Jackson in a book titled ‘The Jackson Family: The True Story of the Most Powerful Family in the Music Industry’, which Gordon is having problems finding a publisher for. Amongst the claims against Jacko are that he abused his pet chimpanzee, Bubbles, that he paid former wives Debbie Rowe and Lisa Marie Presley money to marry him, that Jackson injected himself with “some kind of fluid” that whitened his skin, and that he saw a monkey set ablaze as part of a voodoo ritual in the backyard of the Jackson compound in Encino in 1986.

‘What More Can I Give’ Played On NYC’s KTU Sunday
September 30, 2002 – Contributed by Jerseline: New York City pop/dance radio station KTU had announced on Sunday a ‘worldwide exclusive’ and then played an introduction with names as Ricky Martin, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, and others. Then they played the much delayed all-star charity song ‘What More Can I Give’. This means either a deal must have been reached between Michael, the ‘porn producer’, the other artists involved, his record label, and the radio station. I heard it twice under the span of two hours Sunday afternoon, sending it in the top ranks of their playlist and requests. Check out the KTU website if want to request the song or see some of Michael’s videos they have to stream at KTU.com
The song sounds great. I loved it, like a ‘We Are The World’ for a new generation, but without that awe behind it. This song may do well if other radio stations get the rights to play the song.
