“This loss has deeply saddened me, with a heavy heart I composed this statement. May God cover you Michael. We all lift your name up in prayer. I pray for the entire JACKSON family particularly Michael’s mother and all his fans that loved him so much. I would not be the artist, performer, and philanthropist I am today without the influence of Michael. I have great admiration and respect for Him and I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to meet and perform with such a great entertainer In so many ways he transcended culture. He broke barriers, he changed radio formats! With music, he made it possible for people like Oprah Winfrey and Barack Obama to impact the mainstream world. His legacy is unparalleled Michael Jackson will never be forgotten.” ~ Usher via Twitter

Michael Jackson announced during a brief press conference last month that he’ll be performing in London for his final farewell tour in July. Since he’ll be temporarily relocating to England this summer for a string of shows at the O2 Arena, he has already picked out where he’ll be crashing during his time abroad and you won’t believe how much space his lil “A”zzz requires!
Michael Jackson came out of hiding today to reveal during a press conference at the O2 Arena in London that he’s going back on tour…in London. He reveals his “This is it tour” with the following speech:
This is it! I just want to say that these will be my final show performances in London. This will be it. This is it. And when I say ‘this is it’ I really mean ‘this is it…
I’ll be performing the songs my fans want to hear. This is it. I mean this is REALLY it. This is the final curtain call OK? So, I’ll see you in July and I love you!
I love you so much…from the bottom of my heart. This is it. See you in July.”
Michael Jackson‘s former sugar daddy, Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad al-Khalifa states that he dropped mad cash for Michael to receive some mind-altering motivation:
“Mind-mapping and motivational guru” Tony Buzan came to Bahrainfor a week at the singer’s request, said Bankim Thanki, lawyer for Sheikh Abdulla bin Hamad al-Khalifa, who is suing Jackson for $7 million in a breach-of-contract case here.
Buzan “did not come cheap,” he noted in court today: Buzan charged $37,000 a session for a total of $343,000.
“Who paid for that? Yes, Sheikh Abdulla,” said Thanki.
The 33-year-old sheikh – son of the king of Bahrain – alleges that Jackson took millions in advances from him but failed to deliver on contractually agreed projects, including an album, a “frankly personal” autobiography and a musical. (Source)
