Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ jacket is probably one of the most famous jackets in history. The Thriller music video has found it’s way onto millions of TVs and computer screens. With about 90 million views on just one of the many Thriller music videos posted on Youtube, it’s one of the most popular music videos ever.
So who bought Michal Jackson’s Jacket?
The jacket was sold for $1.8 million in Los Angeles this past Saturday. The man who bought Michael Jackson’s Thriller jacket is named Milton Verret. From Texas, he is a gold trader who intends on using the Thriller Jacket to help raise money for Children’s hospitals around the world.
Michael Would Probably be Happy with his Jacket’s sale
I’m sure Michael Jackson would be happy that his jacket is going toward raising money for sick kids around the world. The jacket is autographed by Michael, but it is one of only two of it’s kind. The other Thriller Jacket worn in the Thriller Music Video one is still owned by the Jackson estate.
Chris Brown, who is infamous for beating up his then girlfriend, Rihanna, has lived in the shadows ever since. Well, until recently. When most would have thought Chris Brown had no chance of making it in music ever again, it appears – based on the recent BET award buzz – that Chris Brown is back.
What did Chris Brown win at the BET Awards?
Chris Brown made some huge moves by winning the Best Male R&B Artist award at the BET Awards show. The first award handed out of the night, and in our opinion, it went to an unlikely winner. Though Chris Brown is obviously an amazing singer and artist, we would have never thought he’d be praised in the public eye again – after his Rihanna incident. Not to mention Chris’ recent gay-slur fiasco.
Chris also won Best Collaboration for his song with Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne… And he moved the crowd at the BET awards with his onstage performance of several of CB’s hits.
What now for Chris Brown?
Chris probably isn’t 100% over his shadowy past. But this is definitely a big move. If Chris can keep his act together for a few more months, he may be set to be remembered as one of the best music artists of his time.
Upcoming music artists have it hard. The music industry is probably one of the most saturated entertainment markets there is. Millions of music artists are out there trying to get their songs heard. Meanwhile, most of the music listening audience are ignorant.
Most people listen to whatever songs are on the radio or whatever songs show up on the first page of Youtube. Therefore, upcoming music artists are left hungry. Hungry for people to listen to their music. Hungry for feedback on their new songs.
Who makes the best music?
When you consider who makes the best music, signed musicians with an endless music production budget, or upcoming music artists who are scrapping for studio time, who do you think makes the best music?
Those without a true appreciation for music, might say that signed artists with large production budgets come out with the best songs. But those who truly appreciate music and the heart put into every song, would say otherwise. Upcoming music artists by far put more heart and soul into their songs.
We’d love to hear others’ opinions on what music is better… Music from signed artists or music from new music artists. What do you think?
ElevenEleven will be the new record label started by Ellen Degeneres. And her first music artist will be Greyson Chance, the kid who blew up on Youtube with his performance of “Paparazzi” by Lady Gaga.
American Idol finally featured Lady Gaga this year performing her hit song, “Alejandro” – which is eerily similar to San Pedro by Madonna.
Lady Gaga Performs AI Style
As always, Lady Gaga performed like an all-star. Gaga really knows how to take over a stage. Even a stage that features naturally hungry performers like the American Idol stage. Lady Gaga really did her thing out there.
Lady Gaga took the American Idol stage, performed her hit song Alejandro, and everyone was left amazed at how good she sings while putting on an amazing show.
American Idol Gaga Performance Reactions
The American Idol crowd (and probably the television viewers) must have been blown away by Lady Gaga’s American Idol performance. What did you think about the show when Lady Gaga performed on American Idol?
Not Afraid is Eminem’s new song that debuted as #1 on the music charts. More serious than many of Eminem’s past songs, Not Afraid has a militant drum roll and features Eminem hitting some musical notes as he sings the chorus of the song.
Not Afraid by Eminem – Youtube Song
Listen to Not Afraid by Eminem on Youtube. The song debuted at #1. The last song to debut at #1 was “3″ by Pop Music Artist, Britney Spears.
Reactions to “Not Afraid” by Eminem
The bloggers (and commenters) have had mixed reactions to Eminem’s Not Afraid song. Of course, the die hard fans are in love with it and the haters are calling it garbage. There were points about the song made by each side (Eminem haters and Eminem lovers).
Haters of “Not Afraid” by Eminem
Eminem haters are claiming that it’s a sub-par song with an “ok” flow, but since it’s Eminem, everyone just gets all crazy about it and treats it like a hit. If someone else had released the song, would it have still been a hit? Also, why is it that every song he comes out with it said to be “his come back” and he’s done with the garbage. You can’t have every song be a come back song.
Lovers of “Not Afraid” by Eminem
Eminem supporters argue that Eminem haters are hating on him when he does silly songs like “my name is” but then turn it around and hate on him when he does something serious like the Not Afraid song. Eminem has a wide range of talents and can reach many different audiences. He should be praised for his amazing music success. Not Afraid by Eminem is yet another hit song.
Kesha Parody videos are all over Youtube. This music video of a parody of Tik-Tok by Kesha is one of the best – and by best, we mean funniest. The girl in the music video definitely has the same “swag” as Pop Superstar, Kesha.
