Just In: Joe Jackson Says “I’m Not Encouraging Michael’s Kids to Be Entertainers”

Despite earlier comments to ABC News that Michael Jackson‘s kids could be stars, Joe Jackson now says has no plans to turn them into entertainers.

“I’m not encouraging them to do nothing. They have to be what they are, kids at the moment,” he said on Monday’s Larry King Live

He said the “Jackson Three” rumors are “a bunch of jive.”

He also denied ever abusing his late son, who died June 25 at age 50 after suffering cardiac arrest, despite previous accusations from the King of Pop himself.

“I never abused my son,” Joe insisted. “Michael was never beaten.”

Joe revealed that he didn’t know the location of his son’s body.

He also said that although he hasn’t seen any results from the family’s private autopsy, he still suspects “foul play” in his son’s death.

Speaking of the singer’s private physician Dr. Conrad Murray, Joe said: “The doctor gave him something to make him rest and he don’t wake up no more. Something is wrong.”

Just In: Michael Jackson’s Body Moved

Michael Jackson’s body has been moved amid fears fans would break into the crypt where it was stored.

The late ‘Thriller’ star’s coffin was taken to a private tomb belonging to Motown records founder Berry Gordy after the memorial service last week, but thousands of people have flocked to the spot since the location was leaked last weekend.

The Jackson family have now moved the coffin to the basement of the main building at Forest Lawn Cemetery – where the singer’s private funeral took place – until his final resting place is decided.

A source said: “The Jackson family was not pleased and ordered the casket to be placed in the basement for security reasons.”

Michael’s sister LaToya Jackson – who supplied information for the star’s death certificate – was reportedly responsible for choosing what he wore to be buried in.

The 50-year-old star is believed to have been dressed in black studded trousers, an oversized gold belt and two black gloves. His trademark single white glove was also placed in the coffin with him.

It is believed that Michael’s family want him to be laid to rest in his Californian ranch Neverland.

However, his mother Katherine is said to be blocking their wish because she believes it is not what the late star – who moved out of the property when he was acquitted of child abuse charges in 2005 – would have wanted.

Katherine has failed in another bid to be “treated like a third trustee” of the singer’s estate, after originally being refused to be legally named as co-administrator last Monday (06.07.09).

Documents filed at Los Angeles Superior Court Monday(07.13.09) contained details of the dispute but Judge Mitchell Beckhoff signed off papers for the singer’s two existing trustees – attorney John Branca and music executive John McClain – to begin doing business on behalf of the estate.

Katherine had been named temporary administrator in the aftermath of Michael’s death last month.

A new court date has been set for August 3.

Meanwhile, toxicology results that could help establish the cause of the ‘Bad’ singer’s death may be available this week or early next week, an official from the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office has claimed.

It is expected the office will announce they have the results and then release the details the following day.

Music News: Rihanna’s New Album Plus Jamie Foxx Gets Her Angry

New Rihanna album will feature Kanye West, Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z, plus Jamie Foxx Gets Rihanna Angry…

Rihanna is growing up, and she’s invited the big boys to play on her new album.

Among the heavy hitters slated to lend their voices to the new album are, Kanye West, the obvious Justin Timberlake, Soulja Boy, the beautiful Shontelle, Jay-Z, the talented Pharell Williams and many others …

Rihanna made a further statement about her music and the “Good Girl Gone Bad” album which is now behind her.

“I do not intend to give up anything, said the singer. Good Girl Gone Bad did that time in my life. It represented who I was. My next album will be a notch above. I want to continue to grow … I am not stuck. I want to change. “

First, it is important to know that no name has been determined at this time, therefore forget the rumor of the “Dark Angels”, the “Karma”, the “Good Girl Gone Bad” and all that follows. Rihanna has chosen the name of her new album for several weeks but want to keep secret until the last moment to avoid any leaks.

Many artists are working on this album that will certainly be a great board that will get Rihanna a successful comeback worldwide. Among the army of employees, include for example the famous leader of the band OneRepublic, Ryan Tedder, who composed two songs for Rihanna, which he played entirely on a piano.  At this stage, we will no longer speak of “planetary tubes”, but songs that should “mark the minds forever,” to cite Def Jam. Words certainly exaggerated but at least the die is cast.

Rihanna never was as much a perfectionist and selective in the choice of songs and their interpretation. Also, it participates actively in the writing of words and the selection of instrumental moods. The album is more rock than the previous one and a bit more pop, while keeping many songs tones and rhythms of R&B, where the singer excels.

It is clear that Rihanna wants to be recognized as being now a mature woman who requires both its own musical style and its own originality. Rihanna loves her image trendsetter and wants now to exploit it to its songs. So this is a true melting pot of musical styles that appear on the new album, which will mark a remarkable 180° turn for Rihanna and the fans, who should not be disappointed with the result.

Namely, several duos should appear on the album. By “several” means two or three. At the moment none have been recorded with the exception of those with singer Chris Brown who have been canceled and will not appear on the album. Needless to say why, as everyone knows (at least, hopefully).

In short, this album promises to be Rihanna’s best album and certainly the best in the league of artists produced by Def Jam.

Jamie Foxx Gets Rihanna Angry At Tao In Las Vegas…

JAMIE Foxx is at it again. The actor, who recently ridiculed Miley Cyrus on his radio show, laid into Rihanna during a party at Tao in Las Vegas the other night.

Jamie took over the microphone and started doing a show. Halfway through, he asked Rihanna to join him onstage,” said sources. She was there with Jay-Z and looked “annoyed” at the request, said our tipster.Rihanna declined, but Foxx continued to badger her.”

The deejay played “Umbrella” and “that was the last straw” for the Barbados-born beauty. “She got up to leave, and Jamie told the deejay to stop the record,” said our source. Foxx shouted, “You can’t go while your song is playing. Relax.”

Our witness said, Rihanna stayed and pretended to enjoy herself, but it was so obvious she was fuming. As soon as the song was over, she got the hell out of there.” Rihanna’s rep declined to comment and Foxx’s rep didn’t return calls and e-mails.

Music News: Jay-Z Tops Forbes’ List

Jay-Z

Forbes‘ annual list of Hip-Hop’s Cash Kings for this year has been unveiled, and it witnesses music mogul Jay-Z on the very top spot. Over the past 12 months, between June 2008 and June 2009, he has been pulling in an estimated $35 million, an amount which is $47 million less than his earnings in 2008.

Last year’s winner, 50 Cent, drops to the 4th place. He is reported taking in $20 million, down from $150 million a year ago. The earnings are said coming from his Vitamin Water deal, G-Unit clothing line and numerous licensing deals.

In between Jay-Z and 50 there are P. Diddy and Kanye West, who secure the 2nd and 3rd slots respectively. P. Diddy rakes in $30 million over the past year from his expanding business that includes a brand of premium vodka and his Sean John clothing line. Kanye, meanwhile, earns a total of $25 million, thanks to his multi-platinum album “808’s & Heartbreak” and his sold-out Glow in the Dark Tour.

“Despite the economy, hip-hop is just as powerful as it’s ever been in the endorsement and licensing world,” says Ryan Schinman, chief of Platinum Rye, the world’s largest buyer of music and talent for corporations when commenting on Forbes’ Hip-Hop’s Cash Kings 2009 list. “Tween stars and rock legends are very reliable, but the impact of hip-hop on pop-culture and fashion continues to lead the charge.”

The music mogul’s earnings over the past 12 months, between June 2008 and June 2009, are listed as much as 35 million dollars.

Just In: Joe Jackson Says Michael’s Kids Have Bright Futures

The elder Jackson praises Michael‘s daughter Paris, saying that he believes the young girl wants to do something in Hollywood show business.

On Friday, July 10, Joe Jackson had an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” during when he expressed his strong belief that Michael Jackson‘s children could have bright futures should they try their hands in showbiz. The elder Jackson especially made a reference to Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, who delivered a touching eulogy during Michael‘s memorial service earlier this week.

“I don’t know – I keep watching Paris,” he said in a statement, before then adding, “She … wants to do something.” Joe, moreover, also has his eyes on Prince Michael Jackson II a.k.a. Blanket, revealing “As far as I can see, well, they say Blanket, he can really dance. That’s what they’re saying. He can really dance.” Joe, however, made no mention of Michael‘s eldest son, Prince Michael Jackson Jr.

On the same interview, Joe was asked about whom he thinks should get the custody of Michael‘s children, and his response was, “The grandmother, Katherine, and I. There’s no one else to do what we can do for them. We should keep them all together and make them happy. And feed them like they’re supposed to be fed. And let them get rest … and grow up to be strong Jacksons.”

Since Michael‘s sudden death on June 25, his mother Katherine Jackson remains the children’s temporary legal guardian. Custody of Prince Michael Jackson Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, and Prince Michael Jackson II will be determined on a court hearing scheduled for July 20.
