Happy Independence day!

Here's some BI reaveals for you, courtesy of ONTD:

Technically I guess this film actor is a B lister but he is definitely A list when it comes to name recognition. Our actor got in some well publicized trouble awhile back. What wasn't made public is the real reason the cops were called. Seems he called a clerk the N word.


Want to know the difference between celebrities?
Let's see how they are treated by the same fashion designer for the same infraction.
Both of our actresses in this item have the annoying habit of getting dresses and other items from our designer on loan and never returning it. Even when asked repeatedly by the designer, neither actress ever returns anything loaned out.
#1 is a C list actress with A list name recognition and does not have the most stellar reputation. She has been banned from ever receiving anything on loan again from the designer. #2 is a B list film actress who stars in "important" movies but is best known for one huge franchise and is loved by everyone (mostly). She usually borrows more items at a higher value, but because she is nice and friendly to the designer he keeps unbanning her and keeps loaning out items.

Now, I know there are some bad dates out there, but you would think that if you are in your 20's you wouldn't have to have your teenage girlfriend pay for all your dates and your clothes and if you get cash from the parents it is the same thing because she is earning all the money anyway.

What Academy Award nominated actor has been taking every opportunity to try and recruit for his new church? Oh, it isn't a church he started attending. It is a church he just recently started for himself based on an entirely new denomination that he has created out of his head. He feels that he has a lot of wisdom and teaching he can pass along. So, far, despite handing out hundreds of cards and brochures, attendance at the church which he holds at his house has averaged about 2. Besides the fact it is strange, apparently he believes church should start promptly at 5am.

Personal news...

If you care...somehow a friend at work talked me into trying to run a marathon in January. 12.5 miles. We'll see how this goes, I've never done this before! Anyone have running tips? Especially on the stories I've heard about bleeding nipples?

The dealbreaker was: "We'll get skinny..." Ok, sold.

Know what the fastest what to lose weight is? Run. For reals.

Neverland update

Basically, not gonnna happen. The neighbors were like. "aw, hell no." Sorry for all the MJ stuff, but I'm a fan. I promise it'll be normal after July 4th. anyway, from yahoo news:

LOS ANGELES – A plan to bury Michael Jackson at his sprawling Neverland ranch fizzled Wednesday, leaving details about his funeral undecided as another mystery was solved: His newly unveiled will says his mother should raise his children, or failing her, Diana Ross.

The changing funeral circumstances disappointed many Jackson fans who had descended on the estate in the rolling hills near Santa Barbara with the hope of attending a public viewing.

"We're terribly disappointed," said Ida Barron, 44, who arrived with herhusband Paul Barron, 56, intending to spend several days in a tent.

"We were going to listen to music and watch Michael Jackson DVDsand party all night long, not just to have fun, but in memory of Michael Jackson," Paul Barron said. "Now we're going to have to just go home."

Jackson's 7-year-old will, filed Wednesday in a Los Angeles court, gives his entire estate to a family trust and names his 79-year-old mother Katherine and his children as the beneficiaries. The will also estimates the current value of his estate at more than $500 million.

Meanwhile, newly named Jackson family spokesman Ken Sunshine said a public memorial was in the works for Jackson but wouldn't be held at Neverland. In addition, it appeared more likely that a funeral and burial would take place in Los Angeles, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.

But the person, who is not authorized to speak for the family and requested anonymity, said nothing was planned for Neverland, at least through Friday.

"The family is aware a Neverland burial is not possible. They are expected to make decisions about whatever funeral and memorial service" will take place, the person said.

Heavy construction equipment and workers were seen passing through the wrought-iron gates of Neverland on Tuesday. It wasn't clear what they were doing. The property is about 120 miles northwest of Los Angeles

In Los Angeles, Jackson's lawyer John Branca and family friend John McClain, a music executive, were named in the will as co-executors of his estate. In a statement, they said the most important element of the will was Jackson's steadfast desire that his mother become the legal guardian for his children.

The will, dated July 7, 2002, gives the entire estate to the Michael Jackson Family Trust. Details of the trust will not be made public.

The documents said Jackson's estate consisted almost entirely of "non-cash, non-liquid assets, including primarily an interest in a catalog of music royalty rights which is currently being administered by Sony ATV, and the interests of various entities."

MJ Updates

His funeral for the public is to be friday. Authorities expect a huge traffic mess.

They took out the rides???

His father, Joe Jackson, is a douche.

MJ had a will after all.

It seems MJ really didn't provide sperm for his children, Debbie Rowe and Blanket's mother were surrogates. I'm sure he loved them anyway with all he had.

Debbie Rowe is the biological mom?

The more I read about him, the sadder I get.

Some fans are too distraught to live.

Smooth Criminal

The weekend would'nt be complete without it.

I know a lot of ppl are STILL trying to figure out how MJ did the 45 degree lean. He did NOT invent the's an old Vaudeville trick/street trick, you can see it demonstrated when the Tin Man sings in the Wizard of Oz. I couldn't find a clip of that, but I can show you a clip of someone else doing it:

The trick? It's the heels in the shoes, like elevator shoes! The supported angle allows the illusion of leaning over further than one really is. No wires, heels! Now you know.

MJ's 1993 Civil lawsuit

I found this interesting, about why MJ would settle out of court. you can follow the whole article here.

Here are a few bullet points:

– Because of double jeopardy, anyone accused of a crime will never have to defend themselves for the same allegation twice unless one trial takes place in civil court and the other in criminal court. This was the situation with Michael Jackson in 1993.

- Up until that point, the alleged victim’s mother June Schwartz had maintained that Jackson was innocent of the allegations. As soon as the civil suit was filed, however, she changed her tune and joined forces with her ex-husband Evan Chandler and their son Jordan. At that point, June Schwartz’s divorce attorney Michael Freeman resigned. “The whole thing was such a mess,” he explained. “I felt uncomfortable with Evan. He isn’t a genuine person, and I sensed he wasn’t playing things straight.”

- The civil suit was filed while the police investigation was still ongoing. As a result, the civil trial was scheduled to take place before the criminal trial began which would have been a violation of Jackson’s constitutional right to not self-incriminate. Typically, when there are two trials dealing with the same allegation, the criminal trial takes place before the civil trial (i.e- the O.J Simpson case). This is to ensure that the Defendant’s defense in the criminal case will not be compromised as a result of the civil proceedings.

- Jackson’s attorneys filed a motion asking for the civil trial to be delayed until after the criminal trial was over. They cited numerous cases such as Pacer, Inc. v. Superior Court to support their request. The Federal case held that, “when both criminal and civil proceedings arise out of the same or related transactions, the Defendant is entitled to a Stay of Discovery and trial in the civil action until the criminal matter has been fully resolved.” Other cases cited include Dustin W. Brown v. The Superior Court, Dwyer v. Crocker National Bank, Patterson v. White and Huot v. Gendron.

- If Jackson had not settled the civil lawsuit, he would have put his entire defense strategy in jeopardy by revealing it to the prosecution months before the criminal case went to trial.

- Let’s pretend for a moment that Michael Jackson had gone through with the civil trial. What would have happened? He would have presented the court with all of his evidence of extortion and Sneddon would have been watching the entire thing unfold. He could have then taken Jackson’s most critical exonerating evidence from the civil trial and found ways to discredit it so that Jackson would have nothing left to defend himself with in the criminal trial.

- In civil trials the jury’s verdict does not have to be unanimous. If at least 50% of the jurors find the Defendant liable, the Plaintiff will still get money.

- The civil trial would have taken months to resolve. Michael Jackson would have been paying millions of dollars in legal fees while at the same time limiting his source of income by putting his career on hold. There was probably also a lot of pressure from his record company to settle the lawsuit because the case was affecting his career.

*From a personal standpoint, I do not deny that whatever MJ was doing with children seemed a bit shady or suspicious. Maybe he felt like he could only really trust children, that they wouldn't try to take advantage of him like adults could. Maybe he was trying to recapture his lost youth. I don't know, I wasn't there. I don't want to believe that he molested children. But then he was a grown man and I'm certain that as he was human, he had sexual urges.

I don't want to believe that those urges were used on children. At the same time, I hate liars, especially people who lie about being molested in order to take advantage of someone's celebrity. I hope that the truth will be brought to light. Let's remember that Jordan, the alleged victim of abuse, chose not to testify in the criminal case.

I do find the point interesting though, that someone would accept money from an alleged child molester instead of pursuing to the ends of the earth to have the accused put away in prison forever for touching their child. I shall always remember Michael Jackson as a Beloved Weirdo. You are truly among the stars now, MJ.*
