Last night during Randy Jackson’s gracious Twitter session with fan-mily, questions were answered, the truth was shared, and volumes were spoken. The tweets themselves were very frank and straightforward, as always coming from Randy. There was no beating around the bush; the truth and opinions about recent topics like the Oprah interview and the Michael album were addressed.
Below is the total of Randy’s tweets as of Wednesday, November 17 (my emphasis added):
Hello everyone, let me say for the record my computer has not been hacked, this is me.
I want to spend some time on as many questions as possible, Feel free to ask whatever you like, there is nothing too personal.
I want the truth to be known.
Q: How do you feel about the Oprah interview? A: I didn’t watch the interview, im sure everyone saw the show she had prior to my parents
Like I said before, no coincidence
I guess, in Oprah’s mind my brother is still on trial, even though he’s not here, may he rest in peace.
Don’t be surprised if the Oprah show with my parents air’s again during the AEG trial
Like I said, No coincidence
Q: How do you feel about the new Album?
A: I have to give you history behind the project in order to answer this question correctly
Me and my nephew were the first to say that it wasn’t his voice on some of the tracks
let me go back and say something that you, the public, may not be aware of
The family and the executers of the Estate, Branca and Mclain are not on the same page
We don’t see eye to eye
I became suspicious about the album, when I heard when armed guards were involved since my brothers passing, May he rest in peace.
John McClain insisted that no family members were allowed at his studio where the project was being completed
My first thought was, what are they trying to hide
Teddy Riley was brought in just to mix and insisted on switching studios
At which he called me to come down and hear my brothers music, may he rest in peace.
I heard the music and I immediately said it wasn’t his voice
Now McClain points the finger at Sony, when he got the tracks before it even went to Sony
But I think they all know all now it is not him
Sony has 250 mil reasons to convince the public that it is his voice, if you know what I mean.
In fact, when I heard about the Sony deal, it made me sick
Like AEG, they were cutting deals with the Estate before I could get my brother in the ground. May he rest in peace.
I invited McClain to the burial, Ironically, he didn’t show up
Neither of the executors didn’t show up to pay their respects
Maybe they were too busy getting deals done
Im sorry its taking so long I get emotional
Okay, after this Sony deal was inked, McClain went to work putting together the first album
Calling all over the place looking for music with my brothers voice on it
From what I heard, he didn’t care about the quality or how complete the vocals were.
I found this to be very interesting
Why would Sony sign a 10 album deal over a period of seven years and
McClain couldn’t find enough product for one album
I’d like to hear what they played Sony, or did Sony even care?
If they don’t even have enough product for one album how are they going to make 10 albums?
On a side note, the letter released by the Estate
I was informed by someone who attended that meeting at the studio
It didn’t happen the way it was mentioned in the letter
You must understand, Sony is a power house in this business
And as to the vocal authenticators, they work for pay. And I wasn’t there when they did their analysis
I dont know what they heard, surely not what I heard
Like I said, Sony and the executors have 250 mil reasons to influence the public.
Some of the songs are him, and some aren’t. I would be my life on that.
I know this may seem harsh, but this is the truth, as I know it.
But what’s worse then harsh is that my brother isn’t here, and all these people are more concerned about making money off his death
They could care less about why and how he died, or maybe they already know
one more question
I can’t tell you what to do, but I can tell you what I think my brother would want
Questions about death conspiracy, whether or not to buy the album, many questions.
Let me say this in closing about everything
This story has not ended, things are still unfolding.
Since my brothers passing, over one billion dollars has been profited.
I want his legacy to be respected as if he were here.
It bothers me that they can’t get the deals done fast enough.
My brother was a perfectionists, and they are paying no regards to quality
We are family. A famous family, but a family whose lost one of its members.
I will miss his laughter. I will miss his silly jokes. I even miss our arguments
Most of all I want all of you to understand that he loved all of you so much. He had a great love for all man kind
Thank you all. Goodnight.
Amidst all this confusion, not only was it refreshing to hear the perspective and truth from a family member, but it gave us fans some room to breath and something to chew on. True, some of you may have come away confused on whether or not you will purchase the album or not, but the answer of many of the outspoken family members have expressed they cannot decide for you. Yet, their advice has been given: Do what you think is morally right.
In other words, WWMJD?
