The truth behind Michael Jackson’s death.
Whether it’s by getting them into trouble, ruining their image, or slandering their name, the U.S. Music Industry giant will always find a way to rid the thorns at its side. This article is only one example – helping expose the truth behind Michael Jackson’s death.
If you’ve read anything about Sons On The Pyre, you’ll know that I’m a big Michael fan. That’s no surprise; Michael had ‘big’ fans, all over the world. However, I’ve always kept an eye on Michael and the unfair treatment he’s received throughout the decades, and something always seemed off: His uncredited work on Sonic the Hedgehog 3’s Soundtrack, the Child molestation scandal & propaganda, & the events leading up to his death.
After reading the article, you’ll gain a better understanding of Michael Jackson’s death; why he died so young, and why some believe he was flat-out murdered. Be sure to watch the videos below, if you wish to see him explain things in his own words. Many of us didn’t get the chance to see.
“They never thought that this performer, myself, would out-think them. We can’t let them get away with what they’re trying to do, ‘cause now I’m a free agent.”
From the year 2000 to 2001, Michael Jackson had worked on his album “Invincible”, under his record label, Sony Music Entertainment. Shortly before the album’s release, Michael had a disagreement with Sony over the licenses to the masters of his albums. Despite the release date of 10/2001, Sony didn’t revert the album licenses to Michael until many years later. Michael opened his own investigation and discovered that his attorney was also representing Sony. This presented a conflict of interests.
Michael was also concerned about his music catalog. Sony was doing everything in their power to cause Michael’s fall, ultimately affecting his personal life, reputation and, more importantly, sales. Low sales meant that Michael would have to sell his share of the catalog at a very low price, in the future.
So, in 2002, Michael Jackson announced publicly that he was leaving Sony Music. Mind you, Michael had been a slave to Sony Music Entertainment for 30 years, generating billions of dollars for them. Needless to say, Sony didn’t appreciate such a valuable talent and asset leaving. But wait! Here are more quotes by Michael.
“I just owe Sony one more album – it’s just a box-set, really” …” So I’m leaving Sony, a free agent; owning half of Sony.”…”I own half of Sony’s publishing… and they’re very angry at me because of it.”
Michael Jackson was not only leaving Sony, he was taking 50% of Sony/ATV Music Publishing with him. What about Invincible? It proved to be a hit – making the original release date, topping the charts in 13 countries and selling over 13 million copies. Due to the lack of promotion, and the lack of an accompanying world tour, Invincible didn’t have the same success in the United States.
Sony went on to claim that their $25 million promo plan failed because Michael refused to tour in the U.S. Michael was found innocent of these charges. After the trial, he decided to sell half of his 50% stake in Sony/ATV Music Publishing to its co-owner, The Sony Corporation.
“Tommy Mottola is a devil”
Thomas Daniel “Tommy” Mottola was head of Sony Music Entertainment, at the time. Michael accused him of being racist and exploiting blacks to his own benefit. In the video above, Michael also tells the audience about Mariah Carey, who was married to Tommy Mottola from 1993-1998. After the divorce, Mariah still had to deal with Mottola stalking her and tapping her phone lines. This was probably no surprise to Michael, who had been working with Tommy Mottola since 1991. Michael stated openly that his relationship with Mottola dissolved due to Mottola’s corrupt working practices. Tommy Mottola is currently married to telenovela actor and singer, Thalia.
“The recording companies really, really do conspire against the artists.” Michael said.
In the video below, you’ll see Mottola express his point of view on The Today Show, with Matt Lauer. During the interview, you’ll learn that Mottola’s intentions are to take control of Michael Jackson’s music catalogue. Why would this man – someone that Michael was trying to keep his music away from – appear suddenly after his death, claiming to be the “shepherd and gatekeeper” of Michael Jackson’s music catalogue?
“Good art never dies”, Michael says. But, evidently, good artists do.
On June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication after suffering cardiac arrest. His personal physician, Conrad Murray, said he had found Michael in his room, not breathing, with little to no pulse, and that he administered CPR on Michael to no avail. “Dr.” Murphy alleged that he couldn’t contact 911 in time, because there was no landline available; that he couldn’t use his cell phone because he didn’t know the exact address; that he tried to phone security, but got no answer. What kind of physician doesn’t know his patient’s address? How did he get there in the first place?
Michael was treated by paramedics at the scene and was later pronounced dead at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Shortly before his death, Michael had reportedly been administered propofol and three anti-anxiety benzodiazepines, lorazepam, and midazolam – drugs known to cause addiction, withdrawal, death and other side effects.
Keep in mind, Propofol is not a sleeping pill or painkiller; it’s a general anesthesia, administered intravenously to place patients in semi-comas before surgery. How is it possible that Michael developed an addictioni? More importantly, what kind of physician prescribes and administers known dangerous drugs for such frequent use?
Let’s assume that “Dr.” Conrad Murphy’s other allegations are true, that Michael had been experiencing withdrawal; that he was so addicted, he pleaded for a last dose of propofol, even moments before he died. Either way, what kind of physician places the judgment of an addicted patient over his own? And why are we to believe his word?
Around 6:30pm, June 24th (the day before his death), Michael arrived at the Staples center, where he’d been rehearsing for his London concerts, according to Ed Alonzo, a magician who was there at the time. “He looked great and had great energy”, he added. Rehearsal ensued ‘till well past midnight.
August 29th, 2009, Michael’s would-be 51st birthday. The Los Angeles County Coroner concluded that his death was a homicide. His personal physician was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 and only served a two-year prison sentence.
In 2010, Sony Music Entertainment signed a $250 million deal with Jackson’s estate to retain distribution rights to his recordings up until 2017, and to release seven posthumous albums over the decade following his death.
Is it me? Or does this make no sense to you, either? There’s nothing we can do about Michael Jackson’s death. Personally, I only regret that he died without realizing how much people really loved him – and accepted him, whatever his color, whatever he looked like.
There’s no reason to let things like this happen to other artists in the future. But if word doesn’t spread, situations like these will inevitably continue unchallenged.
