He’ll do anything to smooch on to his son’s death… Michael Jackson’s father is set to launch a fragrance collection dedicated to his late son!!

Joe Jackson has teamed up with a French perfume company to create the male and female scents, called Jackson’s Tribute and Jackson’s Legend, which are inspired by plants grown at the late King of Pop’s Neverland Ranch.

The fragrances will be released on March 7 in the U.S. A portion of the proceeds will given to a number of the late singer’s favourite charities.

A representative for Jackson’s estate has confirmed the project has not been authorised by them, branding it “a Joe Jackson deal”. Ya–not surprising! At least, it won’t smell like Joe Jackson… rotten!

Micheal Jackson’s 1987 “The Way You Make Me Feel,”  girl-chasing video clip was updated in Ne-Yo‘s new video for “One in a Million” (Ne-Yo is a self-described M.J. fanatic). Instead of following a pretty lady through an alley in the middle of the night with a posse of dancing goons, Ne-Yo and a gang of gentlemen prance through city streets clean in shirts, slacks, and wingtips. It’s a few beats slower than Michael’s classic, but you can definitely see and feel the influence!

Micheal Jackson apparently spent thousands of dollars trying to get throat specialists to make his chimp Bubbles speak!!!

It’s said that MJ pestered surgeons for 4 years for advice on how he could achieve his dream of having a conversation with his monkey friend and constant companion during the mid-80s (often sharing his bed & even going on 1987’s Bad World tour).

His sister La Toya told a British tabloid: “Michael was always wanting to know how to make Bubbles speak and talk. They definitely communicated. One morning Michael called me and said ‘You have got to see this – he mimics everything I do.’ “He wanted to give him vocal chords and asked doctors ‘Can I given him an operation so I know what his thoughts are’.”

But the plan was dashed because surgeons said Bubbles might not survive the surgery.

Michael had to give Bubble (now 26 years old) to a monkey sanctuary in 1988 because he had become too big.

Ahhhh if only technology had come that far! I’d love to know what Bubbles has to say now!

Bidders from around the world bought up Michael Jackson memorabilia worth nearly $1 million at an auction on the anniversary of his death, including $190,000 for the Swarovski-crystal-studded glove he wore on his 1984 Victory Tour.

The bidding that began Friday on more than 200 items was “unlike anything we’ve ever experienced,” said Darren Julien of Julien’s Auctions, which ran the auction at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

Some items, like the glove, brought 10 times more than their estimated value, he said.

“It just shows you Michael Jackson is the most sought after and most collectible celebrity of all time. It was just phenomenal. People flew in from Asia, Russia, all over. Now that he’s gone, we now realize the true legend we lost,” said Julien.

The glove had been expected to sell for between $20,000 and $30,000. The winning bidder was Wanda Kelley of Los Angeles, who also bought a number of Jackson’s albums at the auction. She said she was prepared to go higher if necessary.

“Let’s just say I wasn’t walking out of here without that glove,” she said.

A pair of Jackson’s stage-worn loafers that were listed as worth $2,000 to $3,000 went for $90,000.

The custom jacket that the pop singer was wearing during his interview with Barbara Walters was listed at $6,000 to $8,000. It sold for $120,000.

A white Fedora sold for $56,250. One of the last autographs Jackson signed, and dated June 24, 2009, in his handwriting, went for $21,000.

Wow!

I was sent this link this morning… apparently, it’s a very rare footage of an interview with Michael in the 70s! It won’t be so rare now that we are all posting it, but I have to admit that it is quite nice and raw and simple and just plain young Michael Jackson cuteness!

Michael Jackson’s kids are getting the sweetest allowance ever!

Paris, Prince and Blanket just got their allowance upped — from $60,000! Really??? Apparently, the accounts guardian and lawyers underestimated their monthly expenses & requested the increase! What are they spending on!!! That’s 20,000$ each a month!!! Can you imagine?!

What happenned to working for your allowance?! Washing cars, slinging newspapers on front porches?! lol What did you have to do for your little allowance?! Among your friends, who had the highest allowance and how much was it?!

***** In other news, Prince and Paris are rumored to be making an appearance at this Sunday’s Grammys’ Special Merit Awards ceremony to accept a Lifetime Achievement Award for their father. A video of the award presentation is expected to be shown at the Grammys.

egyptian-bust-jackoIt’s been at the Chicago Field Museum since 1988, but only recently has this 3000 year old limestone Egyptian bust has started drawing attention. Why?! Isn’t it obvious?!?! It’s the dead ringer for Micheal Jackson’s face!

It even has the disfigured nose!!!!!

Unfortunately the bust, which was carved sometime between 1550 B.C. and 1050 B.C., is of a woman and MJ likely never had the chance to see the statuette.

The Pharaoh of Pop doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as King of Pop!!! lol

Don’t you think it’s his spitting image!!!!????
