Why does KJ say she never lost a child before MJ?
Marlon's twin doesn't count?
 
Anyway, this looks amazing. Can't wait!

A new film on Michael Jackson promises to reveal "the many different facets of his personality".
'Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon' directed by Andrew Eastel and produced by Michael's close childhood friend David Gest, involves interviews with more than 50 of his closest friends and family members and is set to reveal what his family went through during his molestation trial in 2005.
Along with a rare interview with Michael's eldest sister Rebbie, where she speaks about his difficult relationship with their father Joe, the movie will also provide insight into the singer's early years with the Jackson 5, his solo career and his life up to his sudden death from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009.
Michael's mother Katherine said: "'Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon' is a truly remarkable film that captures the true character, wit and sensitivity of my son. Producer David Gest takes you on an emotional roller coaster that will bring people to tears as well as really understand who the man behind the music was and is."
David added: "I have tried to show Michael in a truly unique light. I have spent the past fifteen months travelling the world interviewing people who were most important in his life. I believe this film will entertain and educate in equal measures about who the real Michael Jackson was. I hope this will serve as a lasting testament to the compassion and love that he had for all mankind. He was a very complex individual and this film reveals the many different facets of his personality."

Most of the DVD/Video releases are on Tuesday. October 31st 20011 is a Monday! Kind of odd.

Omer’s new song appears to go perfect with this movie, as does the timing of the video release.  I wonder if the two are related. :?:

Don't cross his way, He's part of the plan
I am that child, but so are you

Listen to Katherine at 2:07.

She says "I NEVER lost a child."  So is she really saying she never "lost" a child - meaning she has not "lost" Michael, she knows where he is?  Brandon was never a "child" - he died as an infant.

She does not say "I never had a child that died. "

She does not say "Micheal is dead."


And then, perhaps totally unrelated to this statement, she makes this other almost cliche, yet true, statement "Children supposed to bury their parents, not parents bury children."

SEMANTICS:


"the language used (as in advertising or political propaganda) to achieve a desired effect on an audience especially through the use of words with novel or dual meanings"

Yes I don't know why Ms. Katherine says "I never lost a child".
Maybe she means she never lost a child before Michael confused/

I'm not one of those who believe Brandon is still alive. How would they know to hoax a baby's death before they were even famous?! When Katherine talks about losing a child, or burying a child I immidiately think of Brandon. Not Michael. Even though he was an infant when he passed, he was still her CHILD. I think her saying 'I never lost a child before' she is talking about Brandon. Not Michael. IMO
