Michael Jackson used to spy on U2

March 22, 2017 • By

It has been claimed that Michael Jackson used to be obsessed with Irish rock group U2 and became so concerned that they were going to overtake him in the success stakes that he even sent a private film crew to spy on them.

The music icon was apparently rocked by the monumental success of U2’s 1987 album ‘The Joshua Tree’ and was determined to uncover their secrets.

The private film crew that he ordered attempted to record the band in the studio in Dublin, however, the band’s manager, Paul McGuinness, found out and admits that he found it more than a little bit weird.

A new attraction to come with some MJ Exhibits

March 14, 2017 • By

One of the Media we love so much (sarcasm), National Enquirer will open a themed attraction in Pigeon Forge in Eastern Tennessee.

Along with visitors creating their own tabloid headlines to share on social media, the attraction will also have celebrities exhibits and of course Michael Jackson is one of them!

It is said that the actual hyperbaric chamber used by Michael Jackson will be on display.

The rumor of Michael Sleeping in a chamber started  in 1986 when the National Enquirer (AKA the Least Reliable News Source Ever) published a photograph of Jackson laying inside an actual hyperbaric chamber. While the photo IS real, this was a piece of medical equipment inside the Brotman Medical Center’s Michael Jackson Burn Unit, where he was treated for severe scalp burns in 1984. Jackson donated vast sums of money to the Burn Center, making the purchase of this piece of equipment possible. The photo was taken when he crawled inside, being a perpetual joker, and pretended to be asleep.
