Fair warning: we’re coming up on the anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death from a physician-administered overdose, and that means Hagiography A Go-Go for the next five days. For example: Michael Jackson would be a billionaire if he’d lived - but he would have also had to die to get the money.
Michael Jackson's estate has generated at least $1 billion in revenues since the singer died a year ago, thanks in part to a lucrative new record deal with Sony Music and the most successful concert film of all time, according to Billboard estimates.
It’s a ten-record deal that includes hours of unreleased material. But what of the children? Everyone wants to know when we can start hounding them, you know:
LONDON – Michael Jackson's mother Katherine is quoted as saying that the late pop star's children will attend school for the first time later this year.
The 80-year-old told Britain's Mail on Sunday tabloid that Jackson's three children — Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8 — have had private lessons up until now.
The paper quoted Katherine Jackson as saying that the children would go to an unidentified private school starting in September.
The children have been in their grandmother's care since the singer died in June.
It had better be a school with free-roaming monkeys and a headmaster who dresses up as Peter Pan, sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber and talks in a whispery giggle, or some adjustment may be required. Unless the kids have been instructed by stern English teachers who took the job on the condition they be allowed to give the kids a proper education, I have the feeling they were brought up to believe the Constitution was written by Tinkerbell, and Elizabeth Taylor was the model for the Statue of Liberty.
