Michael Jackson:

Death vs. Sony - Let´s not let it be

Dear friends,
some of you know what Sony did to Michael, some aren´t. I´m sending you this message, and I´d like to ask you to send it to as many youtube friends as you have. After the court with Murray, Sony will be pure for analysis because they are professional corporation enough to arrange the murder, if they weren´t they´d never do it. The world will never know what are they about. and we all know how it will turn out, the court is just a harlequinade, but we can tell as many people as we know what is Sony about and what they did.

Only 5 months after Michael's Invincible album was released is Michael Invisible... World charts doesn't contains his new album anymore. This is very unusual situation for the king of pop. His albums was always successful many years after it's release.
Only 5 months after the release Invincible become Invisible... Though it sold over 5 million copies in the first three months and that's great success. Bat than Invincible was succesfull no more. What's the prablen??
Why did Michael's fastest selling album stopped, fall down in such a short time?
Here is the truth:
The reaseo why Sony Music stopped promotion of Invincible only 5 months after it's release is the struggle between Michael Jackson and Sony Music regarding some business matter.
Several years ago Michael lend from Sony Music money, which he wanted to return soon It is normal operation between artist and his company. Michael had to warrant the loan with his part of ATV catalogue (including 251 songs from Beatles).
Michael bought ATV catalogue in 1985. In 1995 he merged this catalogue with music catalogue from Sony Music and created ATV/Sony Music catalogue. In this way Michael earned 95 million USD. In 2001 Sony Music insisted on Michael to return the loan. That's nothing wrong, the problem is, that Sony Music simultaneously forbidding Michael to return them the money, because they sabotage the propagation of Invincible and profit from sale of Invincible was Michael's main source to return the
Invincible sold 5 million copies all over the world in 2002. But Michael wanted to sell 7 million copies to be able return the money. That means, that Michael didn't earn any money from Invincible. He wanted to sell 7 million copies, which wouldn't be problem for the King of Pop. His last albums did sell very well - Thriller 52 milion copies, Bad 26, Dangerous 25, and double album History sold 14 million copies (28 million discs). Regrettably the sell of Invincible had stopped in 2002. Sony Music got from all countries a lot of parcels with Invincible back since January.
Trades from German, France, Great Brittain and other countries were returning thousands pieces of Invincible. Nobody expected that the promotion of Invincible will finish in such a short time. But why would Sony sabotage album, they payed for? Why would they destroy their best selling artist? Because in this way they can steel Michael's part of ATV catalogue. If Michael won't be able to cover his load, Sony Music will poll his part of ATV catalogue. Sony/ATV was third biggest catalogue all over the world in 2002. Money which it constitute are much much higher than, Michael's loan or profit from Invincible. It's much more easier to keep a music catalogue, then an artist who has his ideas about his path.
That's why Sony sabotaged Invincible. But it's very important for them to keep it in the closet. For Sony Music is important that media and public don't know anything about it. Naturally they don't need to damage their image.
In contradistinction to other broils between artist and their company (Prince vs. Warrner, George Michael vs. Sony Music) broil Michael vs Sony music is different. Michael want advertise his album, but his company forbid it.
So Invincible was the last Michael's album with Sony Music. Sony Music beggar him and stolen his part of ATV catalohue. (MJ sold them part of it in 2007)
Here are some more detailed informations:
Jun 2001
Sony Music changing the first single from Invincible for You rock my world. But Michael wanted to release Unbreakable as the first single and he started to work on an impressive and shocking video for it. Sony stopped this project and prescribe Michael to work on You rock my world project. So he had very
short time to create a proposal for You rock my world video. Sony Music contacted a producer Hype Williams who put his personal proposal. Michael is not content with it as well as with the budget for the video. So Sony Music leased another producent, Paul Hunter, after many disputes about budget for the video, Michael started to film You rock my world video - boring project which didn't interested him.
August 2001
Michael Jackson is working on his on-coming concerts in Madison Square Garden. Sony Music didn't know anything about it, they learn about it from media. They are angry that Michael didn't cooperate with them on this project and they boycotted it. Sony Music's affiliates over the world received a message which forbid them any promotion for this concerts. But both concerts were sold out anyway, and become very successful TV programs in the USA. Sony Music have no interest to get proprietary rights for this concert (Invincible promotion). Consequently the concert is screened in less than 5 countries in the world. The amount which David Gest demands is too high, that noone can afford it.
September 2001
You rock my world - the first single from Invincible is a great radio hit in the USA. Analysts from Billboard magazine and other specialists says that the single would be No1 in Billboard 100, if it had been released in stores (nor radio only). But Sony Music abandoned it, so this single wasn't released in US at all. Sony said, that if they
release single YRMW in the US, it would damage the whole Invincible project. Naturally that's poor excuse only. Every fan known, that if this single was released in US, it would help Michael be more succesfull. Raper Jay-Z, who remixed You rock my world asked Sony Music to release his remix om YRMW single,
Michael himself asked him to do it. Sony Music refused to use Michaels vocals on Jay-Z's hit Girls, girls, girls, which he recorded with Michael. After You rock my world Sony released another single from Invincible - Cry. As a producent of the video was chosen Nick Brandit. Unfortunately Michael is malcontent with the low budget for the video that Sony Music loosened for it. Michael is not delighted at the situation about the video, as well as the Sony Musics behavior, so he decided to not conduct in this video. Than Sony released the video without Michael.
October 2001
Invincible is released worldwide. In the USA is album released with very little promotion only. But Invincible was very successful anyway, so Sony Music said, the no promotion was their business strategy. (how poor)
November 2001
Michael Jackson is finishing his work on What more can I give charitable single for victims of 11. September. Stars like Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, Britney Spears, Carlos Santana they all took part in this project with many other famous singers. Sony Music refused Michael to release this single.
Michael couldn't release this single with any other company, because he was bound with contract with Sony Music. Sony Music are trying make difficult situation for Michael, because they are ni hard struggle with him, so they refused to release charitable single that would help many people as well as Michael.
So Michael eave up this project, he recognized that his career is in Sony Music hands and there's nothing to be done about it.
Butterflies - was the third single from Invincible. But this single was released in radio stations only, noone can buy it in stores. Though Butterflies is radio hit anyway, but not able to reach no1 in Billboard hot 100 without official single release. Michael is not content with budget for Butterflies video, than Sony Music refused to make any video for this song.
February 2002
Sony Music amplify financial constraint on Michael Jackson. He can't get finance his project or return the loan. 3 TV performances are abandoned, due to the broil between Michael and Sony Music.
Producer David Meyers is working on Unbreakable video for Sony. But Michael isn't content with this project. So Michael wants to working on the video himself as a producent. In the end of march is Michael frozen out from the list of Sony Music's preferences. Only 5 months after the Invincible was released Sony Music don't need to promote this album. Though they promoted Michael's last album History for 2 years. Sony Music is trying financially destroy Michael Jackson, which they did in several years. Michael can't propagate his album and they got his part of ATV catalogue. It was 100% sabotage of Invincible - the fastest selling album in music history.
April 2002
During April 3 biggest Michael Jackson fanclubs (MJ News International, Planet Jackson and Angel - they are all destroyed by now, maybe by Sony Music)
communicated together. Soon many others fanclubs all over the world joined them. Fans all over the world are making demonstrations to support Michael. They need the public to know what Sony Music did to Michael.

Now in 2008 Michael would like to release a new album. But how would be the album successful when he has no money for promotion? In past 10 years Sony Music financially destroyed him, so he is not able to make a comeback in 80's and 90's style.

Michael's speech in 2002
London, MJNI Killer Thriller Party 15th June 2002
Michael Jackson Speach
"I want to thank all the great, incredible talents (DJ plays "Speechless"). As long as you play the music, I want to dance! I want to thank this guy for a wonderful performance (referring to Ernest Valentino). I thought Bryton McClure was amazing, too. He's a great singer as well. Anyway, I first wanted to say, I really don't like to talk that much. I really don't. I prefer performing than talking.
I really want you to know what I say. The tradition of great performers: from Sammy Davis Junior, James Brown, to Jackie Wilson, to Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly. The story is usually the same though. These guys worked really hard, and they're crabbed, for the story ends the same. They are usually broken, torn and usually just sad, because the companies take advantage of them, they really do.
And being the artist that I am, at Sony I've generated several billion dollars for Sony, several billon. They really thought that my mind is always on music and dancing. It usually is, but they never thought that this performer - myself - would out think them.
So, we can't let them get away with what they're trying to do, because now I'm a free agent. I just owe Sony one more album. It's just a box set, really, with two new songs, which I've written ages ago. Because for every album that I record, I write - literally, I'm telling you the truth - I write at least 120 songs every album I do. So I can do the box set, just giving them any two songs.
So I'm leaving Sony, a free agent, owning half of Sony. I own half of Sony's Publishing. I'm leaving them, and they're very angry at me, because I just did good business, you know. So the way they get revenge is to try and destroy my album. But I've always said, you know, art - good art - never dies. Thank you.
And Tommy Mottola is a devil! I'm not supposed to say what I'm going to say right now, but I have let you know this. (Points to crowd). Please don't videotape what I am going to say, ok? Turn it off, please. Do it, do it, I don't mind! Tape it!
Mariah Carey, after divorcing Tommy, came to me crying. Crying. She was crying so badly I had to hold her. She said to me, "This is an evil man, and Michael, this man follows me." He taps her phones, and he's very, very evil. She doesn't trust him. We have to continue our drive until he is terminated. We can't allow him to do this to great artists, we just can't.
I just wanted to let you know, I appreciate everything you've done, you've been amazing. You're so loyal! (Scanning the audience). Diana, everybody, Waldo, all the people here! I love you all. You've been amazing, I love you!
But still, but still, I promise you, the best is yet to come!"

Michael left Sony owning half of their music catalogue, at the same time he was charged from child abuse. In 2005 he was found not guilty in all charges and he left the USA for over a year. He lived in Bahrain and Ireland, than he got back to America again. In 2009 he started first solo gigaproject without Sony - This is it, 6 months later he died. After it This is it became Sony´s project and Michael is always "their" entertainer. Do you really think it´s just a bad luck???

After the court with Murray, Sony will be pure for analysis because they are professional corporation enough to arrange the murder, if they weren´t they´d never kill Michael. The world will never know what are they about, and we all know how it will turn out, the court is just a harlequinade, but we can tell as many people as we know what is Sony about and what they did.
