Going back to Indiana
Will you be there
The girl is mine
They dont really care about us
I’ll be there
I want you back
Man in the mirror
I just cant stop loving you
I cant help it
Do you remember the time
Keep it in the closet
I wanna rock wit u
Black or white
Say Say Say
Dont stop until you get enough
Off the Wall
Wanne be startin something
Earlier, the Los Angeles Times said that the singer had been rushed to a Los Angeles-area hospital by fire department paramedics who found him not breathing when they arrived at the singer’s home.
The newspaper said paramedics performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation at the scene before taking him to the UCLA Medical Center hospital.
Jackson had been due to start a series of comeback concerts in London on July 13 running until March 2010. The singer, whose hits include “Thriller” and “Billie Jean,” had been rehearsing in the Los Angeles area for the past two months.
The shows for the 50 London concerts sold out within hours of going on sale in March.
Jackson started out as a child star in the band “The Jackson 5” more than 40 years ago.
He has lived as a virtual recluse since his acquittal in 2005 on charges of child molestation.
There have been concerns about Jackson’s health in recent years but the promoters of the London shows, AEG Live, said in March that Jackson had passed a 4-1/2 hour physical examination with independent doctors.
If you’re a fan of MTV’s non-music related programming, or in other words,if you’re a fan of MTV here’s a look at some new shows they’re currently developing:
There’s a half-hour animated series called “The Awesomes” . . . about a group of lazy superheroes. It’s being written by “Saturday Night Live” star SETH MEYERS.
MTV is also putting together a series based on the MICHAEL J. FOX classic, “Teen Wolf”. The movie if you can believe it . . was released 19 years ago.
There aren’t a lot of details on it yet but MTV says it’ll be a “reinvention of the classic ’80s movie for today’s audience.” That doesn’t sound good. But who knows, maybe it’ll be the next “Buffy”
There’s also a sketch comedy show in the works, starring JAMIE FOXX. There isn’t a title for that yet.
It sounds like it may end up being similar to the old show, “In Living Color”, which Jamie did for three seasons back in the early ’90s.
Also, you know that new HBO show, “Hung” which debuts Sunday) .about a guy who’s, uh, well-endowed??? Well MTV is working on a similar show called “Hard Times”, about an unpopular 15-year-old kid with a gift.
And if you haven’t heard, MTV is producing a spin-off of “The Hills” starring AUDRINA PATRIDGE.
BUZZ ALDRIN HAS RECORDED A HIP-HOP TRACK . . . AND RECEIVED PROPS FROM SNOOP DOGG AND TALIB KWELI:
Old-school astronaut BUZZ ALDRIN,the SECOND man to set foot on the moon,has recorded a hip-hop track called “Rocket Experience”.
And on top of that, SNOOP DOGG and TALIB KWELI are sending it up.
But first, there are two things you should know:
1. FunnyOrDie.com is behind this . . . so it was all done in fun.
(Probably to indirectly promote Buzz’s new memoir, “Magnificent Desolation: The Long Journey Home from the Moon”, which hit bookshelves yesterday.)
2. It’s AWESOME regardless.
“Rocket Experience” is available NOW on iTunes. And Buzz . . . going by his dope rap alias DOC RENDEZVOUS, even stars in a video for the song which was shot by “Charlie’s Angels” director McG.
Snoop and Talib make cameos in the video. They didn’t have anything to do with the song . . . but they did give Buzz some props.
In a separate “making of” video (which is also a spoof) Buzz says, quote, “I have only two passions: Space exploration . . . and hip-hop.”
Talib says, quote, “People in the rap game, we’ve known about Buzz for years . . . he had those orbital rendezvous techniques that he developed at MIT.”
SOULJA BOY is quoted saying . . “You know the person who had the biggest inspiration on . . . everything I do, as far as music, and production, and just everything . . . has to be Buzz Aldrin. The best that ever did it.”
Elsewhere in the video, Buzz disses Auto-Tune, Talib talks about Twittering with Buzz, Snoop lays down a remix and QUINCY JONES makes an appearance.
The new BEASTIE BOYS album, “Hot Sauce Committee, Part One”, will drop on September 15th.
