As you all know, Today marks the beginning of the Trial of Dr. Conrad Murray. The physician who gave Michael Jackson the fatal dose of Diprivan (propofol) which resulted in his death. We will try to bring you up to date information and recaps on the trial proceedings and we welcome all comments.
I guess it is safe to say that Diana Ross was Michael's first love. I don't think that anyone can dispute that. Whether or not that love was unrequited seems to be the question. Diana Ross was born in 1944 which makes her 14 years older than Michael. She was also a member of the '60's singing group The Supremes which was also on the same label, MOTOWN, as Michael's group The Jackson 5. Michael was introduced to Diana at the age of 10 (8 in Hollywood years). Michael lived with Diana for a few months and she was sort of his mentor /surrogate mother. Diana encouraged Michael and taught him about Superstardom. He watched and studied her while soaking up everything that he could learn from her. It's only natural that Michael would have a crush on someone he admired such as Ms. Ross. The thing is, this crush seemed to have lasted well beyond boyhood for Michael. He made no secret about his feelings for Diana, even stating once in an interview for Ebony Magazine, that he loved her (not as a sister or mother figure but as a man loves a woman) and that he would like to marry her. Looking at the two of them together at various functions such as Diana's tv specials, Her concerts, and their Grammy Award appearance, it is clear to anyone that Michael just lights up whenever he is around her. People tend to come down pretty hard on Diana for not having some type or relationship with Michael and marrying someone else when it was apparent that he was so in love with her. While we would have loved to see this pair as a couple, there would have been so much scandal involved that I really couldn't see it happening, at least not back then. Cougars weren't "IN" during that time and for Michael and Diana to have been in a public relationship most certainly would have been viewed as scandalous and borderline abusive. When it comes to Michael and Diana one tends to hold on to either 1 of 2 belief:
1: Michael and Diana had a sexual relationship with Mrs. Ross being his first
2: Michael had a Crush on Diana and nothing ever came of it.
We all have our opinions but because no one is talking, we'll probably never know for sure. Some people tend to think that Dirty Diana was written about Diana. Michael has said that the song is about groupies and while listening to the lyrics, One can most certainly deduce that, but some still tend to believe that subliminally, Mike had Diana in mind while performing that song with his heart wrenching cries of 'Diana " in the middle of the song. Mrs Ross has also helped pen a song that most certainly appears to be about Mr. Jackson. The song entitled "Drop The Mask" appeared on the Japanese Version of her Lp "Every Day Is New Day" Take a listen and tell me what you think?
When it comes to Michael Jackson and his loves, it is hard to come to a consensus. True, Michael exuded sexuality through his performances on stage, but off stage, he was seemingly shy, quiet, and reserved. It's hard for some people to believe that Michael was a normal, red blooded man who did normal redblooded male things and that includes sexual intercourse, dating, and most likely juggling women. Much of what is known about Michael's love life is the result of speculation. People go by who they have seen him with and some may choose to believe the numerous women who have recently( and not so recently) come forth to say that they have had a relationship with Michael. Now I have no idea who Michael was involved with but I can say for certain that it wasn't children (little boys) for all the haters that love to throw that in there. I have my opinions as I'm sure you all do, but I'll post a little bit about each lady (and in some instances, I use that term loosely) and you can decide for youself.
I don't understand how anyone who considers themselves a fan of Michael's can honestly say that it is not his voice on these audios. It's obvious that it is indeed Mr. Jackson on these tapes and anyone who doubts it. needs to study on on Michael Jackson some more before considering themselves a true fan.
I have more audio but I am trying to decide whether or not to post them here, I am trying to determine how time consumig it would be for me to transcribe them in the youtube format so that you can read along as you listen.(which makes it extremely easy to follow along. Otherwise, I'll just post the audio and the transcripts separately. Haven't decided yet.
As you can seen Kizz has been MIA like a muhfugga but the good news is that I am here running shit now. lol The truth is Kizz has been swamped with work and life and she really doesn't have the time to spend online like she used to. Personally, I don't think she even wants to anymore so I contacted her about updates and when I could expect some new ones and she said she's too busy and asked if I would like to take it over. Of course I jumped at the chance so Here I am. Hi guys (waving hard).
I love Gossip, Gossip, and more Gossip but I love Michael Jackson even more! Right now, I'm stanning for him hard and I miss him so much . His death is all I can think about which prompted me to learn any and everything that I could about him. So until further notice, 99.9% of my posts will be about Michael Joseph Jackson...If you don't like it, feel free to leave now. I don't want to alienate any of Kizz's loyal readers but this is where my head is at right now. Please bear with me. Looking forward to chatting with you all and making this blog the best on the net! Kizz gave me a few pointers and I'm new at his so don't stone me if I screw up. *smile* I will try to keep it in the same format as Kizz did while at the same time putting my spin on things.

A lawyer who allegedly terrorized on-and-off-again girlfriend Nova Henry for two years was charged Sunday with two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of Henry and her infant daughter.
Fredrick Goings, 36, of Chicago has been a chief suspect for police since the slayings on Jan. 24, which, according to court records, was also Goings' birthday. Henry , 24 and her 10-month-old daughter Ava with former Chicago Bulls player Eddy Curry were found shot to death in their South Loop apartment. Henry's 3-year-old son, Noah, (also Curry's child) was found asleep on a chair with blood on his feet and hands.
Her family said Henry moved into the upscale apartment and installed a security system a week before her death in one of her many attempts to flee Goings, whom she met when he represented her in a paternity case against Curry, who now plays for the New York Knicks.
But the relationship was unstable from the start, said Yolan Henry, Nova Henry's mother.
Yolan Henry has said that during the couple's roughest patches, Nova Henry told her parents of frightening run-ins with Goings, such as going to the grocery store or her children's school and finding him there watching her.
In April 2007, Nova Henry obtained an order of protection against Goings that prohibited him from having contact with her and her son after he was alleged to have threatened them, according to court documents. Goings was also charged with domestic battery for allegedly trying to push Henry down the stairs and with phone harassment. Henry got an order of protection, but she dropped both the battery case and the protection order within a month.
When she and Goings were not getting along, Nova Henry talked to her mother about renewing the order, but she never did.
According to court records, Goings appeared in court as a lawyer for Henry in a paternity suit as recently as September. At the time of her death, Nova Henry was receiving $15,000 monthly in child support from Curry. Police said Curry is not a suspect and has been cooperative.
Chicago police at a news conference Sunday would not discuss the dispute that led to the killings.
"Part of the motive was domestic-related," said Detective Lt. Denis Walsh.
Investigators have forensic evidence and surveillance video linking Goings to the "heinous" crime, Walsh said.
After Yolan Henry found her daughter and granddaughter dead, police traced Goings' cell phone to a hotel in LaPorte County, Ind.
Police went to see him the day after the killings but found their attempts at an interview to be unsuccessful, sources said. Goings was charged with trespassing after he refused to leave the hotel. Police said Goings has been spotted in court in his capacity as an attorney several times in the past month.
Walsh said Goings was "partially surprised" by his arrest Friday near a relative's home.
Yolan Henry has had custody of Noah since Jan. 24. She said she has been concerned about the child's safety because he was in the apartment at the time of the killings. Since the slayings, Noah has not been able to attend school or follow his daily routine, she said Sunday.
