Clip: 'Love Story'. 2. SOT Bushwacka: "We've been making tune after tune as 12 inches for a long time and it's just a vibe that we hit on in the studio without any intent whatsoever. We had a funny feeling when we finished it that something different had happened, but it wasn't any conscious attempt to get into mainstream at all whatsoever. " 3. Clip: 'Love Story'. 4. SOT Bushwacka: "Believe it or not the first half, which is not the bit that everyone goes mad to, is the bit that took the most work and the most crafting, getting all the drums. Getting the build up right took a long long time to get right and that is just part of the progress that leads into the second half which is of course the breakdown, the fat bass line, very uplifting, very warm piano and it's just a build up and a build up and a build up. It is a very warm, very happy and when we finished it it was very 'is this going to work? This is a piano house track man. This stuff is just not really going on any more.' " 5. Clip: 'Love Story'. 6. SOT Bushwacka: "I used to engineer in Mr C's studio years and years ago. That is where I first met Layo. I was working in there and Layo came in to write some music with a friend of his and I did the session. I got to know him through Richard as well for Mr C and we did a couple more things where I was engineering where we decided to collaborate a little bit. That is how we started working together. We built up a relationship ever since then. " 7. Clip: 'Love Story'. 8. SOT Bushwacka: "There will be moments but there are so many amazingly rewarding moments as a DJ that I don't think it will ever take away from that. It is an amazing thing to do, be a DJ and getting to give people a good time, give them a party and do what you love." 9. Clip: 'Love Story'. 10. SOT Layo: "what changes is your status. instead of playing at a certain time you get to play the headline slot, and things like that change. I think since the first album about 3 years ago things have been building and building, and building and building. And so what has shifted is the opposition within that. It is almost that we don't really notice until when you come to these places you are suddenly playing at a better time which is obviously a lot better. " 11. Clip: 'Love Story'. LAYO AND BUSHWACKA GET LOVED UP British techno duo LAYO AND BUSHWACKA! are filling dance floors with their new single 'Love Story.' The pair - Layo Paskin and Matthew 'Bushwacka!' B - are known in London for their links with tech-house club the End, founded by the Shamen's Mr. C. Layo is the co-founder, Bushwacka a resident DJ. The two in fact met through Mr C - Layo was an engineer at Mr C's studio when Bushwacka! came in to work on some music. They began writing together, and have since released two albums together on End Recordings, the spin off label from the club - which was itself fast becoming among the most highly rated venues in the country. The first album, 'Low Life' came out in 1998 - including the single 'Deep South'- while the second album 'Night Works' was released in July 2002. The new and broader collection includes the new single, and while fans are voting with the feet on the dancefloor, the duo insist they did not create the tune to win a wider audience. Layo explains they could feel they had created something different while they were still in the studio, but had not intentionally gone in a mainstream direction. He adds the first, slower, half of the single was the hardest to write - the second, dancier section came more quickly. The pair insist even wider-still success won't take them off the decks. Speaking at the highlight of the MTV summer tour, the Isle of MTV in Lisbon, they both say DJing is the most rewarding part of their musical life, albeit higher up the bill these days.

B-roll of Victoria and David Beckham MACCA NAMED WORLD'S RICHEST MUSICIAN, OZZY AND ROBBIE RAKING IT IN In these uncertain economic times, Britain's music millionaires are raking it in. Paul McCartney, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne and Robbie Williams have been named among the biggest earners of the last year, in the Sunday Time Rich Rich List, published on 27th April 2003. The list of the richest 1,000 people in Britain and Ireland reveals that the 52 music millionaires on this year's rundown are worth a total of £5,656m (sterling). That is £330m more than the combined value of the 48 music millionaires who made it into last year's Rich List, making the overall rise in British music wealth more than 6% in a year. Top of the pops is 60-year-old Sir Paul McCartney who, now worth £760m, becomes one of the 30 richest people in Britain. Sir Paul, who is also the richest musician in the world, moves up to 29th place in the overall list of the richest 1,000 people in Britain and Ireland. Last year he was placed at number 34, when he was worth £713m. McCartney spends modestly but earns heavily from royalties and touring and is well on his way to becoming the world's first billionaire entertainer, Fellow wrinkly rocker Sir Mick Jagger, 59, gets into the top 200 richest people in Britain for the first time, placed at 180 on the list. Largely on the strength of the Stones' Forty Licks tour, Jagger has jumped 23 places up the overall list of Britain's richest 1,000 - he is now worth £175m, up £20m . Earnings from records, royalties and tours have also increased bank balances for David Bowie, 56, and Eric Clapton 58, who have each seen their wealth rise by 20% in the past year. The rise in Bowie's £120m fortune is largely due to the success of his Heathen album released last June. Clapton has earned at least £20m from touring in recent years to put him equal 14th on the music millionaires' list with Bowie and Phil Collins. Robbie Williams, a new entry in 2002, has proved his staying power with a £33m increase in his fortune. Thanks to the new record deal Williams signed with EMI last October, Robbie has become the richest performer under 30. He jumps from 46th position with £35m in 2002 on the list of music millionaires to 28th position in 2003 with £68m. Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have also shot up the list of the top music millionaires, doubling their wealth over the past year thanks to the success of MTV's 'The Osbournes'. The reality show has become the most popular show in MTV's 21-year history in America and has made stars of the Black Sabbath front man, his wife Sharon and their two squabbling teenagers Jack and Kelly. They jump from 40th place among the music millionaires in 2002 with £43m to 23 rd position in this year's list with £85m. Simon Fuller records one of the most dramatic rises in the music millionaires' list. Holding steady with £40m in 2001 and 2002, the runaway success of his Pop Idol concept on both sides of the Atlantic has propelled him to £90m this year and a rise of 20 places in the music list to number 21, and a rise of more than 500 places from 874 to 359 in the overall top 1,000. The former manager of the Spice Girls gets a 20% cut of all contestants' earnings and owns the rights to all the shows' songs. His total earnings in 2001-02 alone were £30m, mostly from American Idol. The full list of music millionaires is as follows: The Sunday Times Rich List Music Millionaires 2003 music ranking, 2002 music ranking, Name Source of Wealth, 2003 money, 2002 money 1 1 Sir Paul McCartney £760m £713m 2 2 Lord Lloyd-Webber Composer £400m £420m 3 3 Sir Cameron Mackintosh Theatres £335m £400m 4 4= Madonna* £227m £200m 5 4= Robert Stigwood Producer £199m £200m 6 7 Sir Mick Jagger The Rolling Stones £175m £155m 7 6 Sir Elton John £170m £160m 8 8 Sting £165m £150m 9= 18 Tom Jones £150m £110m 9= 13 Keith Richards The Rolling Stones £150m £130m 11 11 Jamie Palumbo Ministry of Sound £136m £135m 12 12 Sir Tim Rice Lyricist £133m £132m 13 14 Roger Ames CEO, Warner Music Group £125m £125m 14= 19= David Bowie £120m £100m 14= 19= Eric Clapton £120m £100m 14= 15 Phil Collins £120m £120m 17 16 Ringo Starr The Beatles £115m £115m 18 9=* Olivia and Dhani Harrison The Beatles £110m £140m* 19 21 Roger Waters Pink Floyd £100m £95m 20 9=* Barry and Robin Gibb The Bee Gees £94m £140m* 21= 41= Simon Fuller Pop Idol £90m £40m 21= 17 Chris Wright Chairman, Chrysalis Group £90m £112m 23 40 Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne £85m £43m 24= 22 Dave Gilmour Pink Floyd £75m £75m 24= 23 Englebert Humperdinck £75m £72m 26= 24= Mark Knopfler Dire Straits £70m £65m 26= 24= Charlie Watts The Rolling Stones £70m £65m 28 46= Robbie Williams £68m £35m 29= 26= George Michael £60m £60m 29= 26= Bryan Morrison Music publisher £60m £60m 29= 26= Jimmy Page Led Zeppelin £60m £60m 29= 26= Robert Plant Led Zeppelin £60m £60m 29= 30= Rod Stewart £60m £55m 34= 30= Brian May Queen £55m £55m 34= 34= Ronnie Wood The Rolling Stones £55m £50m 36= 32= Simon Draper Virgin Records £52m £52m 36= 32= Tony Smith Hit & Run Music/manager £52m £52m 38= 46= Victoria Beckham* £50m £35m 38= 34= John Deacon Queen £50m £50m 38= 34= Nick Mason Pink Floyd £50m £50m 38= 34= Mickie Most RAK record label £50m £50m 38= 34= Roger Taylor Queen £50m £50m 43 41= Van Morrison £45m £40m 44= 41= Ken Berry Virgin Records/EMI £40m £40m 44= New entry Robert Devereux Virgin Records £40m N/a 44= 41= Bernie Taupin Lyricist £40m £40m 47= 41= Sir Trevor Nunn Musicals £35m £40m 47= New entry Sean O'Brien Telstar Records £35m N/a 47= New entry Neil Palmer Telstar Records £35m N/a 47= 46= Sade £35m £35m 51= New entry Annie Lennox £30m N/a 51= New entry Pete Townshend The Who £30m N/a * Madonna and Victoria Beckham's wealth both include family money; Dhani Harrison was not included in the entry for his mother Olivia in the 2002 Rich List; The Bee Gees wealth figure for 2002 included the late Maurice Gibb CLEARANCE DETAILS: Title: "Brown Sugar" Artist: Rolling Stones Composer: TBC Publisher: TBC Label: Virgin

He sports a tanned glow and a shaggy head of highlighted hair, and is artfully posed. The actor-comedian's 2006 movie, "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," was a surprise box-office hit. His new film, "Bruno," is scheduled for release July 10. Baron Cohen staged an elaborate prank at the recent MTV Movie Awards. In character as Bruno, he descended from the ceiling on a wire in a fake mishap that ended with his bare hindquarters in rapper Eminem's face. Eminem stormed off in a huff, but later said he was in on the joke.

Setup shot Keith Urban speaking to reporter 26. SOUNDBITE (English) Keith Urban/Musician, on the increasing about of musician crossing over to country and collaborating with country artists: "I think it's wonderful, because I grew up listing to all kinds of - a mix of music. FM radio in Australia when I was growing up was a real mix. And as much as I was playing country when I was growing up, I was also hearing everything at the same time. So, I think a lot of people, they just want to hear great music. If it's country, great. If it's rock, great. If it's hip hop, they don't care. And I think what hip hop and country have in common is that we tell stories. And it's stories that people relate to." Country Music Association/ABC 27. The Judds performs "Love Can Build a Bridge" 13 June 2009 at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Tenn. AP Entertainment Nashville, Tenn., 17 June 2009 28. SOUNDBITE (English) Naomi Judd/Musician, on reuniting with daughter Wynonna Saturday at the CMA Music Festival, and performing their classic "Love Can Build a Bridge": "What was so neat is that on the bus beforehand Wynonna and I are sharing makeup again, and her son, who is 13, Elijah, was our gopher. And my husband was literally driving the bus. And it was one of those moments where, because now we have boundaries, we have very appropriate, healthy relationship. And, I was sitting there and all of a sudden, I just, felt like my life is like it's supposed to be. Because then I got to do what I love, which is communicate, and to sing that song that I wrote. It was kind of like, 'Beam me up, Scotty.'" 29. Wide arrivals line GENRES COLLIDE ON CMT CARPET If you don't know your ACMs from you CMAs to your CMTs, listen up to country-music legend Alan Jackson as he offers the lowdown on the 2009 CMT Music Awards. "It's about honouring the videos that go along with the music," Jackson said. "You know, when I first came along they were just getting to be pretty hot. And I've made about 45 videos since my career first started." Rodney Atkins said the CMT red carpet is unique, too. "You know, this one is a little more wild," he explained. "It's a little more of the live, what you want out there with folks on the road when you're playing shows. This one just feels like it's got a crazy kind of energy all over the place." Much of the arrivals-line buzz was about Taylor Swift's award-show performance with rock band Def Leppard, as well as her anticipated show opener with rapper T-Pain - a digital short, "Thug Story," in which Swift spoofed her fresh-scrubbed image. "The video was hilarious," T-Pain said. "Just working with Taylor Swift in completion. It was just another experience for me. It was something that I never thought I'd do. It was something that I thought was a joke at first. It was fun, man, and she has a sense of humour that nobody has." Swift and Def Leppard were CMT nominees for their collaboration on Leppard's classic "Photograph." "Haven't done too many of these," said Leppard's Rick Savage, as he looked around the arrivals line. Added band mate Joe Elliott, "No. It's just unusual for us, but it's fun, you know. Savage: "It's like, we feel like we're gate crashing somebody else's party, but in a really nice way." Elliott: "You know, rock and roll started in Memphis, didn't it? You know it's like we just hopped over the fence and joined the party in Nashville to have a look around." When asked about country's expanding acceptance of performers from other genres, Keith Urban replied, "I think it's wonderful, because I grew up listing to all kinds of - a mix of music. FM radio in Australia when I was growing up was a real mix. And as much as I was playing country when I was growing up, I was also hearing everything at the same time. So, I think a lot of people, they just want to hear great music. If it's country, great. If it's rock, great. If it's hip hop, they don't care. And I think what hip hop and country have in common is that we tell stories. And it's stories that people relate to." Naomi Judd walked the red carpet with music exec Scott Borchetta, her fellow judge on CMT's music-competition show "Can You Duet." Judd reflected on Saturday's reunion performance with daughter Wynonna at the CMA Music Festival, in which they performed The Judds' classic, "Love Can Build a Bridge." "What was so neat is that on the bus beforehand Wynonna and I are sharing makeup again, and her son, who is 13, Elijah, was our gopher," Naomi Judd recalled. "And my husband was literally driving the bus. And it was one of those moments where, because now we have boundaries, we have very appropriate, healthy relationship.

Film clip: "Dim Sum Funeral" DIM SUM AND DYSFUNCTION "Dim Sum Funeral" tells the story of a dysfunctional Chinese American family who reunites after the "Dragon Lady" mother dies. The funeral seems intermitable lasting seven days in accordance with Chinese tradition. For the five siblings - seven days is just too long but slowly, they begin resolving their dislikes for each other. Chinese native Anna Chi directs a cast that includes one of China's biggest star, Bai Ling who says the "Dim Sum Funeral" is a beautiful story of relationships. "People overcome their own selfishness and cross the boundary of what they learn to give so much more love and kindness." Director Chi, who was known in her homeland as a poster child for the Chinese Cultural Revolution, came to America as a teen at the urging of her friends who lived in LA. She was searching for artistic freedom. "They said you have to come to Hollywood. That's the land of a filmmakers dream. I said 'OK.' I came here without knowing anybody and didn't have any money, no connections, and most of all I didn't speak a word of English." Despite her preparedness for Hollywood, she made a snap decision and decided to be a director. Chi says she found the movie industry was a far cry form her life in Communist China where her profession was chosen for her. "They announced my job as film editor. You will be a film editor. I had never been exposed to filmmaking at all." Film veteran Talia Shire, who co-stars in "Dim Sum" as the deceased mother's caretaker revealed that she was anxious to work with Chi because of the director's life experiences with oppression in China. "Anna is an artist who has used oppression in a way that stimulates her inner world and her imagination," Shire said. "I wanted to work with a woman who had a great sensitivity in terms of those energies of emancipation." Bai Ling, who stars as the lesbian lover of one of the put-upon family members, says she is hopeful that her latest movie will be shown in her homeland. And she admitted learning a bit more about her country's culture just from starring in the movie. Anna Chi's next project will be called "A Dream of Red Mansion" about an American photojournalist in China who falls for an idealistic revolutionary in 1949. "Dim Sum Funeral" is now in limited release. APTN APEX 06-17-09 0329EDT ------------------- END -- OF -- ITEM -------------------

At about 14 or about 2.30 in the afternoon Mr Jackson was pronounced over at UCLA Medical Centre. About four o'clock this afternoon Robbery Homicide Division was notified of this incident and directed by the Chief of Police to come out and handle the death investigation. Currently the LA County Coroner's office is taking possession of Mr Jackson's body. They will handle any other inquiries into the type of death or anything that relates to that at that point in time." 5. Police Captain Rube DeLaTorre speaking to reporters: 6.

(Reporter off cam: Any idea how long this investigation will take tonight?) We'll got through the night. We'll take, like any other case, as much time as we need to complete a thorough investigation so we can find out exactly what happened. (Reporter off cam: Is the family cooperative?) Very much so. Everybody is very cooperative and this case, it's very tragic. You have an iconic superstar and certainly a lot of people are very unhappy. (Reporter off cam: If he was pronounced dead at the hospital can you explain why the LAPD has to investigate at the home?) Well, we do that in a lot of cases. Again, it's department policy and procedure. We do this every single day. We investigate cases all throughout this city and we're not doing anything different here than we would not do for anybody else.

Like I mentioned before, if any scene, uh, evidence of foul play and the evidence of trauma, all of those things are taken a look at with anybody that would die suddenly, unexpectedly, we do this every single day." 7. Wide shot of house JACKSON DIES, POLICE SPEAKS Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the "King of Pop" and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, has died. He was 50. Jackson died on Thursday (25JUN09) at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he said the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Jermaine Jackson said his brother's personal doctor and paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his rented home in Holmby Hills. A team of doctors at UCLA Medical Centre also tried for more than an hour, Jermaine said. Los Angeles police Lieutenant Gregg Strenk said at a separate news conference that police robbery-homicide detectives have been ordered to investigate, which is common in a high-profile case. Strenk said the coroner's office, which will handle inquiries into the type of death, is taking possession of the body. Across the United States, people reacted in stunned disbelief as word spread of Jackson's death. Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. Overhead, news helicopters whirred noisily and TV trucks clogged streets. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the medical centre, which is near Jackson's rented home, was roped off with police tape. As word spread a few minutes later that Jackson had died, several people burst into tears. Others stood silently, looking pensive, as they waited for official word from the hospital. Angela, one of the fans gathered outside the medical centre, said Jackson's death would affect an entire generation. Another fan in tears said she was in disbelief. A similar scene played out just a couple miles away, in front of Jackson's tony Holmby Hills home, where a Fire Department ambulance had arrived earlier to take him to the hospital. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions. -- APTN APEX 06-26-09 0236EDT ------------------- END -- OF -- ITEM ------------------- AP-APTN-0600: US Jermaine Jackson Friday, 26 June 2009 STORY:US Jermaine Jackson- REPLAY Jermaine speaks about brother's death LENGTH: 01:51 FIRST RUN: ready RESTRICTIONS: Check script for details TYPE: English/Nat SOURCE: Pool STORY NUMBER: 610863 DATELINE: Los Angeles, 25 June 2009 LENGTH: 01:51 Pool Los Angeles - 25 June 2009 1.

Group of students STORYLINE: Throngs of people gathered at New York's Times Square on Thursday, stunned by the news on big screens that the "King of Pop", Michael Jackson had died. Gasps could be heard as newcomers read newsflashes that Jackson was believed to have died of a heart attack at age 50. People could be seen relaying the news to friends and family, making calls and sending text messages. Some in the crowd danced to Jackson's song and called his name. Others stood in stunned disbelief. "I will always remember being in Times Square when Michael Jackson died," Michael Harris told AP Television. At the Apollo Theatre in New York, where Jackson first performed with his brothers at age 9 in 1969, the billboard was cleared for the message, "In Memory of Michael Jackson. A True Apollo Legend." The Rev. Al Sharpton spoke to a crowd outside the theatre, many of whom clutched Jackson's pictures, played his music and imitated the singer-dancer's signature moonwalk moves. The civil rights leader remembered how Jackson called him in the middle of the night to ask to view James Brown's body after the soul legend's death in 2006. He said he last spoke with him a few months ago. In Washington DC people reacted with sadness. A tourist from Texas, Helen Moyo, described the news as "devastating." "He's one of those people that you never thought of dying so soon," she said. Jackson, the former child star who became known the world over as the "King of Pop" before his life and career deteriorated in a freakish series of scandals, died on Thursday in a Los Angeles hospital, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The person was not authorised to speak publicly and requested anonymity. The circumstances of his death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home, Captain Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. The paramedics tried to resuscitate him and took him to UCLA Medical Centre, Ruda told the newspaper.

HUNDREDS OF MICHAEL JACKSON FANS CONVERGE ON HOSPITAL Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at UCLA Medical Center people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. As word spread that Jackson had been pronounced dead, several people burst into tears. Others simply stood in disbelief. Still others whipped out cell phones and began calling or texting friends. During Los Angeles' notoriously slow-paced rush-hour commute, Jackson's music could be heard blaring from several cars along busy Wilshire Boulevard. As the crowd at the hospital increased by the minute, police and security officers in plainclothes quickly blocked off entrances. When word spread that a news conference was scheduled for a hospital auditorium hundreds of people tried to rush in and police had to quickly shut it down. Jackson, the 'King of Pop' who once moonwalked above the music world, died Thursday (25JUN09) as he prepared for a comeback bid to vanquish nightmare years of sexual scandal and financial calamity. He was 50. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his rented home in Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him.

Still image: Berry Gordy at press conference GORDY REMEMBERS JACKSON Motown Record Corporation founder Berry Gordy said he was shocked at the passing of pop star Michael Jackson, who died Thursday at age 50. At just age 11, Jackson became a star as frontman for his family's group The Jackson 5, which went on to become one of Motown's all-time selling artists. "It's like a dream, a bad dream," Gordy said, in a press conference at his Bel Air home late Thursday afternoon, just hours after getting word of Jackson's death. "He was so much like a son to me. It's just hard to realise that Michael Jackson is not here." Gordy sat in a den surrounded by dozens of photos of himself with Motown and other notables. "There is a picture back there where we played baseball every week when Michael was a kid," Gordy noted. "He was a catcher and my son was the pitcher, and they're back there doing it together. He just grew up under the Motown banner. And while most people think he had no fun in his childhood, he did a lot that brought joy to him." Gordy said he was at first reluctant to sign The Jackson 5 to his label, coming off the complications of dealing with another one-time child star, Stevie Wonder. But he was impressed by young Michael. "He always wanted to be the best and was willing to work as hard as it took to be that," Gordy recalled. "And we could all see that he was a winner at that age. I've believed that winners are winners long before they win and picking them out before they win was very easy with Michael Jackson." By the late '70s, both Michael Jackson and his brothers parted professional ways with Gordy, who was hoping they'd nonetheless reunite for a 25th-anniversary Motown celebration. "We were doing the TV show and the word came back that he couldn't do it because he was doing too much television," Gordy said. "I called Michael up and I said 'Michael, I know you and you know me and this television is not a television show. It is Motown 25.' and he said 'I'll be there.' He came there and then he did the moonwalk." Jackson's "Motown 25" performance of "Billie Jean" would help propel Jackson to his all-time popularity, with the best-selling "Thriller" album, and his being crowned the "King of Pop." Jackson would eventually be dethroned, both in terms of record sales and image. In recent years, he battled a variety of health issues. "I've been concerned about it all the time," said Gordy, 79. "I've always been concerned about it. In fact, I was always concerned about his health even when people felt that he wasn't as sick as he really was. But I always felt that he had problems and I would always -- I'm into health myself, so I was telling always to take care of himself, do things that would change his lifestyle from a health standpoint." "Michael was and will remain one of the greatest entertainers that ever lived," Gordy concluded. "One of the greatest entertainers that ever, ever lived."

Jackson, who was 50, died at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for Los Angeles County, confirmed his office had been notified of the death and would handle the investigation.

Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m., Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times.

And he went through hell. Anyhow he is in heaven now. He is definitely in a better place." Pool London, 5 March 2009 13. Various of Jackson on stage WORLD REACTS TO JACKSON DEATH People around the world reacted with sadness to news of the death of the "King of Pop" Michael Jackson, who passed away on Thursday (25JUN09) aged 50. Uri Geller said Jackson once told him he was a "very lonely man" and that was because "nobody really understood Michael Jackson." "I think he was a happy man when fans were around him," added Geller. "He drank their love. He knew how to absorb their affection; the energy that they were emitting to him." Elsewhere, fans expressed their sorrow across Latin America and in Asia, where he was especially popular. Fans in Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong and the Philippines woke on Friday to the news of Jackson's death and spoke of their shock and sadness. Takeo Kawamura, the Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary, said he was "sorry" that Jackson has passed away. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for Los Angeles County, confirmed his office had been notified of the death and would handle the investigation. The circumstances of Jackson's death were not immediately clear. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure - a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions. Jackson was preparing for what was to be his greatest comeback: He was scheduled for an unprecedented 50 shows at a London arena, with the first set for July 13.

HBO celebrated the premiere of its latest addition to the line-up, "Hung" on Wednesday (24JUN09) in Los Angeles. The offbeat comedy is about a well-endowed schoolteacher-come-escort named Ray Drecker. "It's about a guy trying to survive the times, you know?" said the show's star Thomas Jane. "Here's a guy who's an all American guy. A relatively good looking guy, talented, baseball player, played a season for the Braves. Married his high school sweet heart, home coming queen, had a couple of kids, travelling around the country, he's got it made. This is America for God's sake." As the economy gets tougher and tougher to survive, the underpaid teacher decides to supplement his income by capitalizing on his generous physical gift. With the help of a former-acquaintance-turned-pimp, Tanya (Jane Adams), Ray attempts to earn extra cash. "It's a little empowering. I'm selling his ass. Selling his ass," jokes Jane Adams. "It's going to go for a pretty penny, we hope." The extra money helps to counter the financial drains caused by his divorce from his ex-wife (Anne Heche), the needs of his teenaged twins, a lapsed fire-insurance policy, and a stubborn inability to take control of his life. "Jessica is a girl who, you know it's kind of little bit of the story of Jack and Diane, she is an American kid in Detroit, and fell in love with a boy named Ray and then they grew up," explained Heche. "And then things weren't as wonderful as she thought they were and not as wonderful as she would continue to like them to be. So she lives a little in that bubble." For those living in caves, "Hung" does not refer to anyone's last name. It's a description of Drecker's sole useful asset. Because, you know, he's hung. It leaves one to wonder what the audition process was like for Thomas Jane. Quick to admit to the process, Thomas Jane shows no shame. "I don't know, I'd say it was a little bit of type casting," smirks Jane. "But I try to avoid it, but in this business it just keeps getting harder and harder...I don't know." "Hung" debuts on HBO, Sunday, June 28.

The Nick asked me to take her out for the night and we just went out for like four hours and laughed and really opened up to each other and from that point on we didn't even really have to build the chemistry. It was just there." New Line Cinema 22. Clip film: 'My Sister's Keeper' DIAZ TAKES ON NEW ROLE IN "MY SISTER'S KEEPER" Hollywood superstar Cameron Diaz admits she didn't think twice about becoming a mom - in her latest film that is. "I didn't worry whether it was something believable or that I hadn't played it before," she says. "It was something that I really enjoyed." And though she's not a real-life mother, Diaz plays the bulldog matriarch Sara in director Nick Cassavetes' latest drama, 'My Sister's Keeper.' The film premiered Wednesday (24 June) in New York City. Based on the Jodi Picoult best-seller, the film focuses on the Fitzgerald family, and the drastic decision they made in medically engineering a child (Abigail Breslin) as a perfect genetic match to help save the life of their older daughter Kate (Sofia Vassilieva), who has leukaemia. Diaz says working on such a heart-wrenching movie takes its toll on the actors. "It does take its toll on you. But that's what we do, you know? It's like how policemen go into a crime scene or a fireman comes out of a fire, you know? It's just sort of what we do emotionally," she says. In the film little Anna provides blood, bone marrow, whatever Kate needs. She does it because she loves her sister, and because it's all she'd ever known. Now at 11, with Kate needing a kidney, Anna says no for the first time - and beyond that, she files a lawsuit seeking medical emancipation from her parents to keep them from making further decisions about her body. Diaz says she was "amazed" how courageous her young co-stars were during filming: "Sophia shaved her head and her eyebrows at fifteen, you know. That's a really formidable time when kids really have their identity with their hair. That's who they are. And she just did it. She had hair down to here. And Abigail was just sort of fearless in everything. She's a warrior." Vassilieva admits that shaving her head was a scary prospect at first, but credits her colleagues for helping her through. "It was such a great team to support me through and I remember when I was shaving my head Nick was there. Nick Cassavetes, our incredible director. Nicole Schultz who's a girl who was actually our support. She's gone through cancer and she knows all the steps. She was there and we chanted fuzzy wuzzy was a bear, fuzzy wuzzy had no hair and I shaved some of it off. So it was fuelled with energy but of course it was scary up until then. The eyebrows were the worst. Hair can be a fashion statement, but your eyebrows, that automatically labels you with an illness," says the star of TV's "Medium." Breslin says she was able to draw on real life experience for the role. "My grandpa died of cancer, so you know, I know that anybody in my family would have given anything to make him feel better and that's sort of what's going on in this family too," she says. In the film Kate shares her first love with a fellow cancer patient, played by Thomas Dekker ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles"). Dekker says portraying their romance was a challenge at first. "The first day that we were shooting together is when we met," explains Dekker. "We'd had no time previous. And Sophia and I are both people who don't really open up to anybody. We're kind of?and so there was no chemistry there. Shot this really short thing fortunately so it didn't really matter. Then Nick asked me to take her out for the night and we just went out for like four hours and laughed and really opened up to each other and from that point on we didn't even really have to build the chemistry. It was just there." "My Sister's Keeper" opens in US and UK theaters 26 June 2009.

A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Jackson died Thursday in a Los Angeles hospital. The person was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity. The circumstances of his death were not immediately clear. Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times that Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m. local time (1930 GMT). Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s.

The biggest bouquet came from The Hollywood Historic Trust, which maintains the Walk of Fame. Fans paying their respects at her star remembered her for her fight against cancer, her compassion, and of course, her hair. "I actually garner a lot of strength from her, because I'm a liver cancer sufferer," said one. "And I once met Kate (Jackson), I worked for her once. I don't know, I have this bond with them and they don't even know me." "I just saw her love for other people," said another, "what a compassionate person she was." "She had nice hair, yeah, lovely hair," said another fan. "She was always the tall, sophisticated looking in 'Charlie's Angels.'" Fawcett burst on the scene in 1976 as one-third of the crime-fighting trio in TV's "Charlie's Angels." A poster of her in a clingy swimsuit sold in the millions. Her full, layered hairstyle became all the rage, with girls and women across America adopting the look. She left the show after one season and turned to more serious roles in the 1980s and 1990s, winning praise and an Emmy nomination for playing an abused wife in the TV film "The Burning Bed." She was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006. As she underwent treatment, she enlisted the help of longtime beau Ryan O'Neal, who is the father of her now 24-year-old son, Redmond.

Clip - 'Charlies Angels' FARRAH FAWCETT DIES AT 62 Farrah Fawcett, whose luxurious tresses and blinding smile helped redefine sex appeal in the 1970s as one of TV's "Charlie's Angels," died Thursday after battling cancer. She was 62. The pop icon, who in the 1980s set aside the fantasy girl image to tackle serious roles, died Thursday shortly before 9:30 a.m. PDT in a Santa Monica hospital, spokesman Paul Bloch said. She burst on the scene in 1976 as one-third of the crime-fighting trio in TV's "Charlie's Angels." A poster of her in a clingy swimsuit sold in the millions. She left the show after one season but had a flop on the big screen with "Somebody Killed Her Husband." She turned to more serious roles in the 1980s and 1990s, winning praise playing an abused wife in "The Burning Bed." She had been diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006. As she underwent treatment, she enlisted the help of actor Ryan O'Neal, who had been her longtime companion and was the father of her son, Redmond, born in 1985. This month, O'Neal said he asked Fawcett to marry him and she agreed. They would wed "as soon as she can say yes," he said. Her struggle with painful treatments and dispiriting setbacks was recorded in the television documentary "Farrah's Story." Fawcett sought cures in Germany as well as the United States, battling the disease with iron determination even as her body weakened. "Her big message to people is don't give up, no matter what they say to you, keep fighting," her friend Alana Stewart said. NBC estimated the May 15, 2009, broadcast drew nearly 9 million viewers. In the documentary, Fawcett was seen shaving off most of her trademark locks before chemotherapy could claim them. Toward the end, she's seen huddled in bed, barely responding to a visit from her son. Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith comprised the original "Angels," the sexy, police-trained trio of martial arts experts who took their assignments from a rich, mysterious boss named Charlie (John Forsythe, who was never seen on camera but whose distinctive voice was heard on speaker phone.) The program debuted in September 1976, the height of what some critics derisively referred to as television's "jiggle show" era, and it gave each of the actresses ample opportunity to show off their figures as they disguised themselves in bathing suits and as hookers and strippers to solve crimes. Backed by a clever publicity campaign, Fawcett - then billed as Farrah Fawcett-Majors because of her marriage to "Six Million Dollar Man" star Lee Majors - quickly became the most popular Angel of all. Her face helped sell T-shirts, lunch boxes, shampoo, wigs and even a novelty plumbing device called Farrah's faucet. Her flowing blond hair, pearly white smile and trim, shapely body made her a favorite with male viewers in particular. A poster of her in a dampened red swimsuit sold millions of copies and became a ubiquitous wall decoration in teenagers' rooms. Thus the public and the show's producer, Spelling-Goldberg, were shocked when she announced after the series' first season that she was leaving television's No. 5-rated series to star in feature films. (Cheryl Ladd became the new "Angel" on the series.) But the movies turned out to be a platform where Fawcett was never able to duplicate her TV success. Her first star vehicle, the comedy-mystery "Somebody Killed Her Husband," flopped and Hollywood cynics cracked that it should have been titled "Somebody Killed Her Career." The actress had also been in line to star in "Foul Play" for Columbia Pictures. But the studio opted for Goldie Hawn instead. "Spelling-Goldberg warned all the studios that that they would be sued for damages if they employed me," Fawcett told The Associated Press in 1979. "The studios wouldn't touch me." She finally reached an agreement to appear in three episodes of "Charlie's Angels" a season, an experience she called "painful." She returned to making movies, including the futuristic thriller "Logan's Run," the comedy-thriller "Sunburn" and the strange sci-fi tale "Saturn 3," but none clicked with the public. Fawcett fared better with television movies such as "Murder in Texas," "Poor Little Rich Girl" and especially as an abused wife in 1984's "The Burning Bed." The last earned her an Emmy nomination and the long-denied admission from critics that she really could act. As further proof of her acting credentials, Fawcett appeared off-Broadway in "Extremities" as a woman who is raped in her own home. She repeated the role in the 1986 film version. Not content to continue playing victims, she switched type. She played a murderous mother in the 1989 true-crime story "Small Sacrifices" and a tough lawyer on the trail of a thief in 1992's "Criminal Behavior." She also starred in biographies of Nazi-hunter Beate Klarsfeld and photographer Margaret Bourke-White. "I felt that I was doing a disservice to ourselves by portraying only women as victims," she commented in a 1992 interview. In 1995, at age 50, Fawcett posed partly nude for Playboy magazine. The following year, she starred in a Playboy video, "All of Me," in which she was equally unclothed while she sculpted and painted. She told an interviewer she considered the experience "a renaissance," adding, "I no longer feel ... restrictions emotionally, artistically, creatively or in my everyday life. I don't feel those borders anymore." Fawcett's most unfortunate career moment may have been a 1997 appearance on David Letterman's show, when her disjointed, rambling answers led many to speculate that she was on drugs. She denied that, blaming her strange behavior on questionable advice from her mother to be playful and have a good time. In September 2006, Fawcett, who at 59 still maintained a strict regimen of tennis and paddleball, began to feel strangely exhausted. She underwent two weeks of tests and was told the devastating news: She had anal cancer. O'Neal, with whom she had a 17-year relationship, again became her constant companion, escorting her to the hospital for chemotherapy. "She's so strong," the actor told a reporter. "I love her. I love her all over again." She struggled to maintain her privacy, but a UCLA Medical Center employee pleaded guilty in late 2008 to violating federal medical privacy law for commercial purposes for selling records of Fawcett and other celebrities to the National Enquirer. "It's much easier to go through something and deal with it without being under a microscope," she told the Los Angeles Times in an interview in which she also revealed that she helped set up a sting that led to the hospital worker's arrest. Her decision to tell her own story through the NBC documentary was meant as an inspiration to others, friends said. The segments showing her cancer treatment, including a trip to Germany for procedures there, were originally shot for a personal, family record, they said. And although weak, she continued to show flashes of grit and good humor in the documentary. "I do not want to die of this disease. So I say to God, `It is seriously time for a miracle,"' she said at one point. Born Feb. 2, 1947, in Corpus Christi, Texas, she was named Mary Farrah Leni Fawcett by her mother, who said she added the Farrah because it sounded good with Fawcett. She was less than a month old when she underwent surgery to remove a digestive tract tumor with which she was born. After attending Roman Catholic grade school and W.B. Ray High School, Fawcett enrolled at the University of Texas at Austin. Fellow students voted her one of the 10 most beautiful people on the campus and her photos were eventually spotted by movie publicist David Mirisch, who suggested she pursue a film career. After overcoming her parents' objections, she agreed. Soon she was appearing in such TV shows as "That Girl," "The Flying Nun," "I Dream of Jeannie" and "The Partridge Family." Majors became both her boyfriend and her adviser on career matters, and they married in 1973. She dropped his last name from hers after they divorced in 1982. By then she had already begun her long relationship with O'Neal. The couple never married. Both Redmond and Ryan O'Neal have grappled with drug and legal problems in recent years.

Some expressed regret they would never get to see him in concert: "I was hoping that maybe he'd come to New York too. I would've paid anything to see him." The circumstances of his death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m., Capt. Steve Ruda told the Los Angeles Times. The paramedics performed CPR and took him to UCLA Medical Center, Ruda told the newspaper. Michael Jackson is survived by three children.

Various of Jackson going into court MICHAEL JACKSON HAD HIS SHARE OF FINANCIAL WOES Michael Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer. He had the biggest selling record of all time, successful concert tours, and made savvy business decisions. But Jackson lived a lavish lifestyle that eventually caught up with him later in his career. The 50-year-old singer died Thursday (25 JUNE) of cardiac arrest. A major catalyst to the singer's lifestyle came from the mounting legal costs after acquired after being acquitted of child molestation in California in 2005. He has struggled to pay his debts, and was forced to give up the deed to his Neverland ranch. Last April, he went to court to halt the sale of 2,000 items taken from Neverland by Julien's Auctions. Martin Nolan from Julien's Auctions. "All of this stuff came from Michael Jackson and from his land, Neverland in the Santa Innes Valley in Santa Barbara, California." Some of these items were on display at the Hard Rock Caf? in New York City's Times Square. Among the items are a silver and white silk jacket worn during the Victory tour, his 1984 American Music Awards for "Thriller," and "Beat It," and a variety of capes, crowns, belts, and jewel-encrusted accessories. That auction was stopped at the last minute. In 2007, Jackson settled with another auction company after a warehouse full of his memorabilia at a failed storage facility was put on the block. Items included his signature black fedora, Tito Jackson's handwritten lyrics to the hit "ABC," Michael Jackson's black crested jacket and other awards. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - remains the biggest-selling album of all time, with more than 26 million copies. Jackson also owned most the Beatles song catalog in a venture with Sony records. Jackson was set to play 50 concerts in London this summer.

Zoom out to wide of cemetery STORYLINE: The body of an Air France 447 flight attendant was buried in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday, more than three weeks after the Paris-bound flight disappeared with 228 people on board. Lucas Gagliano, 23, was the only Brazilian crew member working on the flight. A Rio de Janeiro native, Gagliano had relocated to France and had been working for the airline for more than two years. He had returned to Brazil to attend his father's funeral fifteen days before embarking on the flight on May 31st. Several hundred people attended his funeral at the Sao Joao Batista cemetery, including his mother, relatives and more than a dozen Air France employees in uniform. The Airbus A330 plane came down in the Atlantic after running into thunderstorms en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris. The Brazilian military has led the search and recovery efforts for bodies and debris, while the French are in charge of investigating the crash and the hunt for the flight recorders, or black boxes. Rescue workers have recovered fifty bodies from the crash region near Brazil's Northeastern coast line. At least eleven bodies have been identified. In a written statement on Thursday, Air France Chief Executive Officer Pierre-Henri Gourgeon said two Air France employees had been identified. According to the release, the flight's pilot and a male flight attendant were identified. The airline could not confirm Gagliano as the identified crew member. The cause of the crash is unclear. The plane's two black boxes could be key to determining what happened. French officials said this week that military ships searching for the wreckage have detected sounds in the Atlantic depths but they are not from the flight recorders. Two French-chartered ships are searching an area with a radius of 50 miles (80 kilometres), pulling U.S. Navy underwater listening devices attached to 19,700 feet (6,000 meters) of cable. A French submarine is also searching.

Wide of vigil, pan to the church STORYLINE: Dozens of protesters, many of them of Iranian origin, demonstrated in parts of Europe on Thursday against Iran's attempts to silence dissent after a disputed election result. In Paris, around 50 Iranians protested in front of the Iranian embassy and in Berlin a candle-lit vigil was held. "European governments need to reconsider the relations with Iran, and also the economic sanctions, and what is most important, the Iranian resistance needs to be recognised as legitimate resistance," said Mansour Voyond, of the Iranian Society in Berlin. The protests came as Iran's embattled opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi vowed on Thursday that he wouldn't back down from challenging what he called a rigged presidential election despite the regime's increasing attempts to isolate him. Incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, proclaimed the landslide winner of the balloting, has accused US President Barack Obama of meddling in Iran's affairs. On his Web site, Mousavi levelled unusually strong criticism at the Islamic regime's leaders, saying they were "the main factor for the recent violence and unrest and have spilled the blood of the people." His allegation came nearly a week after supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned the opposition to end street protests or be held responsible for any "bloodshed and chaos." Khamenei has refused to order a new vote despite the biggest demonstrations in the country since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Step up for this country that is in search of reforms and the change that will go down in history," he added. Zelaya fired General Romeo Vasquez as head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for refusing to support Sunday's non-binding referendum, but the Supreme Court ordered he be reinstated on Thursday. Zelaya, who sympathises with former Cuban President Fidel Castro and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, has argued that Honduras' social problems are rooted in the 27-year-old constitution. He has not specified what changes he would seek, but opponents accuse him of wanting to emulate Chavez by expanding presidential powers and allowing himself to run for re-election. The referendum asks voters if they want a formal election on whether to call an assembly to write a new charter. The president's dismissal of Vasquez prompted the chiefs of the army, navy and air force to resign. The president himself announced on Wednesday night that Defence Minister Edmundo Orellana had resigned. Vasquez said he could not support a referendum that the courts had declared illegal, but he ruled out the possibility of a coup. Attorney General Luis Alberto Rubi, who asked the court to reinstate the military chief, is also urging Congress to remove Zelaya from office. Zelaya, a wealthy ranch owner grappling with rising food prices and a sharp spike in drug violence, is currently barred from seeking re-election when his four-year term ends in January.

Mid of Tatyana Golikova, Margaret Chan and interpreter leaving STORYLINE: The swine flu virus is "stable" with no mutations, World Health Organisation (WHO) Director General Margaret Chan said on Thursday in Moscow after a meeting with Russian Health and Social Development Minister Tatyana Golikova. Margaret Chan, how ever, underlined the importance of close monitoring of the spread of the virus, adding that it is "highly unpredictable." Chan arrived in Russia for official talks on the A/H1NA pandemic with the Russian Cabinet. Since the swine flu emerged at the end of April, experts have feared that it could mutate into a virus that combines the contagious nature of swine flu with the virulence of avian flu. The WHO declared a global pandemic earlier this month. In a global update on Wednesday it reported 55,867 laboratory-confirmed cases of the A (H1N1) virus in 108 countries and 238 human deaths from the disease since late March. Only three swine flu cases have so far been confirmed in Russia, with experts predicting the first wave of swine flu in November.

Young boy dressed as Michael Jackson STORYLINE Michael Jackson, the sensationally gifted child star who rose to become the "King of Pop" and the biggest celebrity in the world only to fall from his throne in a freakish series of scandals, has died. He was 50. Jackson died on Thursday at UCLA Medical Centre after being stricken at his rented home in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. His brother Jermaine said it is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, he said the cause of his death "is unknown until results of the autopsy are known." Jermaine Jackson said his brother's personal doctor and paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his rented home in Holmby Hills. A team of doctors at UCLA Medical Centre also tried for more than an hour, Jermaine said. Los Angeles police Lieutenant Gregg Strenk said at a separate news conference that police robbery-homicide detectives have been ordered to investigate, which is common in a high-profile case. Strenk said the coroner's office, which will handle inquiries into the type of death, is taking possession of the body. Across the United States, people reacted in stunned disbelief as word spread of Jackson's death. Within minutes of Jackson's arrival by ambulance at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre people began arriving by the hundreds, the crowd quickly filling a grassy entrance outside the hospital. Overhead, news helicopters whirred noisily and TV trucks clogged streets. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the medical centre, which is near Jackson's rented home, was roped off with police tape. As word spread a few minutes later that Jackson had died, several people burst into tears. Others stood silently, looking pensive, as they waited for official word from the hospital. Angela, one of the fans gathered outside the medical centre, said Jackson's death would affect an entire generation. Another fan in tears said she was in disbelief. A similar scene played out just a couple miles away, in front of Jackson's tony Holmby Hills home, where a Fire Department ambulance had arrived earlier to take him to the hospital. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller," which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance. Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie, and Jackson's death immediately evoked that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977. As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure, a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions.

People in front of White House fence STORYLINE: Throngs of people gathered at New York's Times Square on Thursday, stunned by the news on big screens that the "King of Pop", Michael Jackson had died. Gasps could be heard as newcomers read newsflashes that Jackson had died of a heart attack at age 50. People could be seen relaying the news to friends and family, making calls and sending text messages. Some in the crowd danced to Jackson's songs and called his name. Others stood in stunned disbelief. "I will always remember being in Times Square when Michael Jackson died," Michael Harris told AP Television. People danced and chanted Jackson's name outside the Apollo Theatre, where the billboard was cleared for the message, "In Memory of Michael Jackson. A True Apollo Legend." Jackson first performed at the Apollo Theatre with his brothers at age 9 in 1969. The Rev. Al Sharpton spoke to a crowd outside the theatre, many of whom clutched Jackson's pictures, played his music and imitated the singer-dancer's signature moonwalk moves. The civil rights leader remembered how Jackson called him in the middle of the night to ask to view James Brown's body after the soul legend's death in 2006. He said he last spoke with him a few months ago. In Washington DC people also reacted with sadness.

Uri Geller said Jackson once told him he was a "very lonely man" and that was because "nobody really understood Michael Jackson." "I think he was a happy man when fans were around him," added Geller. "He drank their love. He knew how to absorb their affection; the energy that they were emitting to him." Elsewhere, fans expressed their sorrow across Latin America and in Asia, where he was especially popular. Fans in Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong and the Philippines woke on Friday to the news of Jackson's death and spoke of their shock and sadness. Jackson died at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles. Ed Winter, the assistant chief coroner for Los Angeles County, confirmed his office had been notified of the death and would handle the investigation. The circumstances of Jackson's death were not immediately clear. Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album "Thriller" - which included the blockbuster hits "beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" - is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 (m) million copies sold worldwide. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters.

He surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, often wore a germ mask while travelling and kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions. Jackson was preparing for what was to be his greatest comeback: He was scheduled for an unprecedented 50 shows at a London arena, with the first set for July 13.

Redacted audio of 911 call from Michael Jackson's home on Thursday 911 CALL RELEASED IN MICHAEL JACKSON CASE A 911 caller seeking help for Michael Jackson told an emergency operator that only a personal physician had seen what happened, and an ambulance was urgently needed because resuscitation efforts weren't working. The Los Angeles Fire Department on Friday released a redacted audio recording of the call made Thursday by a person who only referred to Jackson as a 50-year-old man. It appeared that a mention of the phone number was deleted from the recording. "I need an ambulance as soon as possible, sir," the caller said urgently but politely. "We have a gentlemen here that needs help and he's not breathing yet. He's not breathing and we need to - we're trying to pump him, but he's not, he's not." The caller reported that Jackson was on a bed and the emergency operator began to instruct him to do CPR, but stopped when the caller said that the personal physician was there. "Oh, OK. We're on our way there. If your guy is doing CPR and you're instructed by a doctor, he's a higher authority than me. And he's on the scene," the 911 operator said. The operator asked if anyone witnessed what happened. "No, just the doctor, sir, the doctor was the only one there," the caller said. "Did he see what happened?" the operator asked. "Doctor, did you see what happened, sir?" the caller asked someone in the room. Only an urgent mumbling can be heard on the recording. "We're on our way. It's less than a mile away from Cedars," the operator said, referring to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Paramedics, however, took Jackson to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

The breathing mechanism stops and of course breathing is what brings oxygen to the heart muscle. This can lead to an irregular rhythm and a complete stopping of the heart such as cardiac arrest."

Various of Michael Jackson coming out and shaking hands with Japanese fans waiting at the arrival gate TIME IS CRUCIAL DURING CARDIAC ARREST A New York cardiologist says when a person suffers cardiac arrest, timing is everything. "Time is critical when it comes to CPR. Every minute of delay in getting emergency services decreases your chance of survival by 7-10% so it's absolutely critical that CPR be administered right away," says Dr. Lori Mosca of New York-Presbyterian Hospital. In a transcript of the emergency call released by fire officials, a caller reports Jackson was on a bed and not breathing or responding to cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The unidentified caller said Jackson only was with his personal doctor at the time. "I need an ambulance as soon as possible, sir," the caller said urgently but politely. "We have a gentleman here that needs help and he's not breathing yet. He's not breathing and we need to - we're trying to pump him, but he's not, he's not." The pop star died later Thursday afternoon at University of California Los Angeles Medical Center. The autopsy began Friday morning and was expected to last several hours. An official determination on cause of death was not expected for weeks or longer, until more sophisticated tests are completed. Brian Oxman, a former Jackson attorney and a family friend, said Friday on NBC's "Today" show he had been concerned about Jackson's use of painkillers and had warned the singer's family about possible abuse. Oxman claimed Jackson had prescription drugs at his disposal to help with pain suffered when he broke his leg after he fell off a stage and for broken vertebrae in his back. Dr. Mosca says, "We don't know the details of this specific case but certainly we do know that certain medications, narcotics for example, and demerol is one example of an opiate pain medication that is known if taken in very high levels can lead to respiratory arrest."

Man puts Jackson records on display, pan over to display BRISK SALES OF JACKSON MUSIC, MEMORABILIA Michael Jackson's death has led to skyrocketing sales of his music and videos, with major retailers like Amazon.com Inc. and Barnes and Noble Inc. selling out of products that have regained immense popularity overnight. Bill Carr, Amazon's vice president of music and video, said Friday that once the world learned that the pop icon had died Thursday, the Web site sold out within minutes all CDs by Michael Jackson and by the Jackson 5 - the group Jackson and his four older brothers formed out of Gary, Ind., in the late '60s. Sixty percent of Amazon's CD orders Thursday were for Michael Jackson music, something Carr called "stunning." He said he'd "never seen anything like this" before at Amazon after the death of a pop culture icon. As of Friday afternoon, Jackson's albums accounted for all 10 of Amazon's "Bestsellers in Music" list, with the 25th anniversary edition of the celebrated "Thriller" album taking the top spot. Meanwhile, Barnes and Noble's Web site and retail stores are currently sold out of most Jackson CDs, DVDs and books, Chief Merchandising Officer Jaime Carey said. Like Amazon, its 10 bestselling CDs were Jackson titles. Both companies said they were working to get the products back in stock. Even boutique stores are doing a brisk business. Alan Grossbardt, the co-owner of Colony Record and Radio Center in Manhattan, said Jackson himself was a very good customer. "Over the years he would come in, and he would be buying the stuff for his fans, for his family, for his own collection," he said. "So I would say that the biggest collection in the world is somewhere where he has it." Apple Inc. would not describe the level of demand for Jackson's music at its iTunes online store, but his dominance of iTunes' top-seller lists Friday speaks for itself. Around the time of Jackson's death, only one of his albums ranked in the top 100 on iTunes in the United States. By Friday morning, eight of the top 10 albums were Jackson's. An "Essential" collection of Jackson's songs compiled by Apple's iTunes music team was the top-selling album, followed by "Thriller." Five of Jackson's singles made it to iTunes' list of most-purchased tracks - "Man in the Mirror," "Thriller," "The Way You Make Me Feel," "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," and "Smooth Criminal" - in what may be one of the best barometers to gauge his most popular songs.

Jackson, 50, died on Thursday after suffering cardiac arrest. "Michael Jackson was one of the most creative and influential recording artists of the last 40 years," said Terry Stewart, president and CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. "He was uniquely gifted with his talent as a songwriter, dancer and performer. While we deeply mourn the loss of any Inductee, few have generated the response from fans like the tragedy we learned of this week. His legacy will live on for a long, long time." On Sunday, 28 June 2009, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will honor Michael Jackson during its annual Rock and Soul festival with video presentations in the 4th Floor Theater, including footage from his induction with the Jackson 5 in 1997 and his induction as a solo artist in 2001.

Clip, 'Zeke and Luther' DISNEY ROLLS OUT NEW SUMMER SITCOM ABOUT TEEN SKATEBOARDERS The Walt Disney Company has found a lure for 'tween' girls with Disney Channel shows like 'Hannah Montana' and 'Sonny With a Chance.' So, what about guys of the same age? 'Zeke and Luther' is one a summer sitcom Disney has on its new Disney XD channel, (formerly the Toon Disney channel), that aims for that very market. In fact, Disney XD's target market is young guys, aged 9 to 14, who won't watch the Disney Channel because it's so closely associated with - ick! - girl shows. 'Zeke and Luther' is a fast-paced buddy comedy starring Hutch Dano as 'Zeke' and Adam Hicks as his zany sidekick 'Luther.' Hicks says, "The show is about two kids who strive to be professional skateboarders. It's a buddy comedy and it pretty much - it has a moral to it, which is, follow your dreams and friendship." Hicks describes his character as "this 15-year-old zany, outrageous kid, always getting into mischief." Dano says 'Luther' is the perfect foil for his character. 'Zeke,' he says, is "the straight man. He wants to be the best skate boarder in the world. He eats, sleeps and drinks skateboarding." They both say they met while waiting to audition, just clicked and auditioned together. "We were waiting outside because the casting director went in and was talking to the producer," Hicks says. "So were just waiting outside pacing and we were like 'Let's just go in and kill this. Let's do it. Let's go in.' I didn't even know him at that time and we went in and did a great job." 'Zeke and Luther' airs Mondays on the Disney XD channel.

And so we reached out to as many people as we could who were influenced by Michael or who are peers of Michael who can talk about him during the show." 16. BET Awards '09 sign BET AWARDS TO HONOR JACKSON Artists such as Beyonce, Wyclef Jean and Ne-Yo are scrambling to change their performances for the Black Entertainment TV Awards Sunday (28JUNE) to honor the late Michael Jackson. And others who were going to skip this year's show -- Justin Timberlake, Usher and Omarion -- are now scrambling to get back to Los Angeles to participate. The awards show, hosted by Jamie Foxx from the Shrine Auditorium, will be dedicated to Jackson because of his influence on music and pop culture, said Stephen Hill, an executive producer for the awards. Jackson died Thursday afternoon at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at Los Angeles home. Artists who have worked on their performances for weeks are changing them last-minute to honor Jackson, Hill said. "To change it up in three days is something that's not easy but they're all willing and looking forward to it," he said Friday. "There's a direct line from Ne-Yo to Michael Jackson. There's a direct line from Beyonce to Michael Jackson. There's a direct line from Jay-Z to Michael Jackson. I think they'll want to pay tribute in their own way." The O'Jays, who will be receiving a lifetime-achievement award at the ceremony, share Jackson memories during their Friday-morning rehearsal. "Well, they said Sammy Davis was the best entertainer ever," said O'Jays member Walter Williams Sr. "I put Michael up there right with him. Michael worked hard. You could see it when he hit the stage. When I heard it, I felt pain. And that's going to take a long, long time to go away. I met him when he was nine year old, at the Uptown in Philadelphia. So, a lot of love for Michael and family. And our prayers go out to Michael and family." Hill said he expects acceptance speeches to be dedicated to Jackson's memory and the influence he had on the artists. BET Networks CEO Debra Lee said the telecast will be expanded from its originally scheduled three hours to at least three and a half. "And I wouldn't be surprised if it goes even longer," she noted. "So, we're the first big awards show out, since the tragic news yesterday. And we want to make it special for MIchael. I know he would want us to celebrate his life in addition to paying tribute to him." Hill said seeing the Jackson 5 perform in 1971 inspired him to go into the entertainment business. He still keeps a poster of the group in his office, he said. "I don't think that this first public outpouring could be left in better hands," Hill said. "I'm caring, responsible and passionate about the Michael Jackson legacy. I'm glad to be able to take this challenge." "There will be another awards show, so if this one changes, that's fine," he said. "There will not be another Michael Jackson."
