Da The inquisitr

Intouch Weekly print edition are running a story that Michael Jackson is so sick, with a rare genetic disease that he might die. For realz, this time, not faking it to get out of some sort of court appearance, jail cell etc.

According to Intouch Michael has the rare genetic disease Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency.

award-winning investigative journalist Ian Halperin tells In Touch that he believes that the King of Pop is fighting for is life. “Michael has a very severe lung condition called Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency,” Halperin, a New York Times best-selling author, tells In Touch exclusively. “He’s had it for years but it’s gotten worse. He needs a lung transplant but may be too weak to go through with it. He also has emphysema and chronic gastrointestinal bleeding, which his doctors have had a lot of trouble stopping. It’s the bleeding that is the most problematic part. It could kill him.”

Because this genetic disease is so rare – Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency affects just 1 in 5,000 Americans – it’s been difficult to treat, says Halperin. “For years, Michael has been working with his own doctors to make sure his condition doesn’t progress. He has been on many medications that have stabilized him.” But as the disease has progressed, Halperin says that the pop star’s quality of life has diminished. “He can barely speak,” says Halperin. “Also, the vision in his left eye is 95 percent gone.”

Michael Jackson’s brother Jermaine Jackson confirmed to Foxnews that Michael was desperately ill saying. “He’s not doing so well right now. This isn’t a good time.”

I guess that puts paid to the much talked about Jackson Five tour.

See here for more information on the disease.

I can see the celebrity fundraising specials now, although it does explain a bit

Intervista di Akon

Akon has claimed Michael Jackson will never tour again, even though fans are eager to see the King of Pop on stage again.

The singer worked with Jacko last year and has suggested that fierce pressure from the media has shattered the ‘Thriller’ star’s confidence.

“If you want quality concerts and quality performances [then the media] have to lay off people,” Akon told WENN.

“Michael Jackson is the best performer ever and he can’t even focus – you will never see another tour from him.”

“[The media] plays a big role in that. It affects the people they’re writing about. It’s a lot to do with Michael Jackson not coming out and being open.”

“I think all he needs is a record, one hit record then he might get his confidence back.”

Ci teniamo a far sapere, che, in merito alla prina notizia, il giornale risulta essere un tabloid, e che la cosa non è stata nè divulgata e nè confermata dallo staff di MJ.

Purtroppo non è la prima volta che si specula sulla sua salute, e ci sembra assolutamente inopportuno tirar fuori una malattia PER FAR SCALPORE, soprattutto in rispetto per le persone CHE VERAMENTE NE SOFFRONO.

Michael Jackson To Auction Almost Everything He Owns
December 11, 2008 by Tim Saunders

Michael Jackson – the King of Pop himself – is to clear out his belongings from the Neverland Ranch and auction them for charity.

The 50-year-old will see over 2000 items – such as his famous white glove, the Neverland Ranch gates, art works, a life size bronze statue, garden furniture, and memorabilia – go under the hammer between April 21-25 in what will go down in history as one of the most monumental auctions of music memorabilia ever.

A portion of the proceeds from the auction will go to MusiCares, the charitable arm of the Recording Academy – the group that gives out the Grammys – that provides critical assistance for music people in times of need.

“He has never had one [an auction],” said Darren Julien of Julien’s Auctions. “We have been working closely with him for five months and he is in complete control of this.”

The auction is expected to raise a lot of money for the charity, with one of Jackson’s gloves selling for $35,000 in 2006, and his socks going for $15,000 in 2005.

“We have not put an estimate on the gates yet. There is a lot of history there,” Julien said.

The auction catalog will sell for $100 with a limited signed edition available for $500.

Bidding starts in February, and more information about the auction can be found at the Julian’s Auctions website

    This day in history

    Ten years ago: The House debated articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton

    •Five years ago: Michael Jackson was formally charged with molesting a cancer-stricken boy at his Neverland Ranch; Jackson was acquitted at trial.

    Today is Thursday, Dec. 18, the 353rd day of 2008. There are 13 days left in the year.

    Today’s Highlight in History:

    •On Dec. 18, 1865, the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, abolishing slavery, was declared in effect by Secretary of State William H. Seward.

    On this date:

    •In 1787, New Jersey became the third state to ratify the U.S. Constitution.

    •In 1892, Tchaikovsky’s ballet “The Nutcracker” publicly premiered in St. Petersburg, Russia.

    •In 1915, President Woodrow Wilson, widowed the year before, married Edith Bolling Galt at her Washington home.

    •In 1940, Adolf Hitler ordered secret preparations for Nazi Germany to invade the Soviet Union. (Operation Barbarossa was launched in June 1941.)

    •In 1944, in a pair of rulings, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the wartime relocation of Japanese-Americans, but also said undeniably loyal Americans of Japanese ancestry could not continue to be detained.

    •In 1957, the Shippingport Atomic Power Station in Pennsylvania, the first public, full-scale commercial nuclear facility to generate electricity in the United States, went on line. (It was taken out of service in 1982.)

    •In 1972, the United States began heavy bombing of North Vietnamese targets during the Vietnam War. (The bombardment ended 11 days later.)

    •One year ago: The White House said President George W. Bush had approved “a significant reduction” in the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile, cutting it to less than one-quarter its size at the end of the Cold War.

    •Today’s Birthdays: Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark is 81. Actor Roger Smith is 76. Blues musician Lonnie Brooks is 75. Rock singer-musician Keith Richards is 65. Movie producer-director Steven Spielberg is 62. Movie director Gillian Armstrong is 58. Movie reviewer Leonard Maltin is 58. Rock musician Elliot Easton is 55. Actor Ray Liotta is 53.
