Michael Jackson died three years ago today, so here's my favorite remix of my favorite of his songs, done in the mid-90's by none other than the godfather of house, Frankie Knuckles. I love how Frankie keeps all of the elements in that matter (the strings, the horns, the bubble-keyboards) and emphasizes some to make them matter more — I never realized how gorgeous this vocal performance was until I heard the stripped-down intro.
The Michael Jackson estate is reportedly in talks for the inevitable film about the life of the King of Pop. Ivan Reitman's Montecito Picture Company – which has brought us Old School and Up In The Air, but also EuroTrip and The Pink Panther – might produce. According to Variety, "The project would only cover certain periods of the late singer's life." So none of the gross stuff.
We wouldn't be surprised if Frankie—the impressively coordinated, dishwasher-loading young dancer seen here—now wants to ground his father until the end of time for revealing his Michael Jackson moves to the YouTubeniverse. At least that's how we would feel if our dad surreptitiously filmed us doing our "Smooth Criminal" routine (we don't actually have one).
That terrible bottom-feeding tabloid called the Los Angeles District Attorney is at it again: At the manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray today, prosecutors displayed a second Michael Jackson death photo, this time showing the King of Pop naked "at the time of autopsy." The photo is here, if you're so inclined. [Image via Getty]
