Michael Jackson’s “Breaking News”: Suffer the wrath of The Lich King Of Pop!

Michael Jackson Breaking NewsWhere to begin with Michael Jackson’s “Breaking News”—the “new” single off the upcoming, posthumous Michael—which was released earlier today at michaeljackson.com? With the fact that, from beyond the grave, Jackson still commands the attention of a desperate and vulturous media industry? That he does so with a song in which he lashes out against that very same invasive paparazzi, who dogged him throughout his career? The creepily ominous lyric that states, “You wanna write my obituary?” Jackson’s mother claiming that the vocals aren’t those of her deceased son, but some imposter? Sony Music’s stiff response, which claims that they have “complete confidence in the results of our extensive research, as well as the accounts of those who were in the studio with Michael, that the vocals on the new album are his own.” Geez. And all of that before actually listening to the song (which you can do below) and deciding whether you like it or not.
