Jacko Says Record Industry 'racist'

The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, who is facing downward on his music career, criticized the record industry for being racist to black artist, especially his current company, Sony Records.

Jackson quote: The recording companies really, really do conspire against the artists -- they steal, they cheat, they do everything they can, (Especially) against the black artists.

Jackson, 43, who began his recording career as a child, spoke at the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network in Harlem. Sharpton and attorney Johnnie Cochran Jr. recently formed a coalition to investigate whether artists are being financially exploited by record labels.

Jacko criticize Tommy Mottola, Sony Music chairman, as "mean, racist, very, very, very devillish." He also accused Mottola saying "N" word when talking about unidentified black Sony artist.

He also used several examples as "black artists victim of the industry", including James Brown, Mariah Carey.

About 150 of Michael Jackson's fan protested in front of Sony's Manhattan HQ, calling "Please Sony, stop killing the music," "Terminate Tommy Mottola," and "Invincible is Unbreakable." Jacko later joined and chanting "Down with Tommy Mottola!"

Jacko even made a poster with 3 boxes marking The Good (Michael Jackson), The Bad (Mottola) and The Ugly (Mottola's image).

Sony Music issued a statement calling Jackson's comments "ludicrous, spiteful and hurtful. It seems particularly bizarre that he has chosen to launch an unwarranted and ugly attack on an executive who has championed his career ... for many, many years."

Jacko's latest album "Invincible" shows dissapointment in sales, despite Sony has spend USD$25 million for the promotion. He criticize Sony did not do ENOUGH for the promotion.

I guess this is another Jacko's move to promote his poor-selling album. It's his problem, not Sony.

Michael Jackson?

Let's see......
1. white skin pigment
2. dozens of nose jobs
3. an overtly effeminate persona
4. an out-of-court settlement over allegations of sexual abuse of young boys
5. a pet giraffe
6. best friend is Elizabeth Taylor
7. sleeps in an oxygen tent
8. wears one glove

Oh ya......his opinion carries weight with me, for sure.  Yeah sure

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Uh is it just me or ... Oh never-mind the punch-line just left me

Yyz717, isn't everyone's best friend Elizabeth Taylor and to be honest I've actually had more reconstructive surgeries than Jacko

That fool looks older than I and I don't have his money.

Michael Jackson at an Al Sharpton rally? Anyone with Al is a joke, mush less a "man" that tries to look white, whatever that is.

I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.

hmm, 2/3 or so of all new artists are non-whites. 90% of the artists that are one day flies are non-whites.
Yes, the record industry is racist allowing artists that have a greater chance at failure to give it a try...

Jacko is probably not happy that he doesn't get as much in royalties now that his sales are dropping...

I wish I were flying

I heard that he tried a similar protest in London. He arranged for loads of fans to turn up outside Sony Records with their banners. Unfortunately it was arranged at the same time as England was playing football in the world cup so one turned up.

When Jackson is penniless, and singing on streetcorners in order to scratch together lunch money, then I might believe him.

Ungrateful little shit.

If this was true, why not boycott Sony and start your own record company?

His last couple of albums have been big flops. When everything was well you never heard of these things. Now all of a sudden he wants to complain.

The unmitigated gall of Michael Jackson. Wih all the real problems going on in the world (war, famine, homelessness, unemployment) he chimes in with a selfish tantrum. Perhaps he has himself to blame because his last record was a bust.It was so uninspired and no amount of PR could save it. Gee, maybe he is actually a thing of the....gasp...past??? Instead of shreiking and screeching about some sort of wrong done to him, why doesn't he just fade into obscurity with dignity....God, he even made "Reverend" Al wince!

now lets all sing a chorus of....

"As long as your're my baby doesn't matter if you're white or white...."

(PS, if he has a so called disease which causes "white spots", why didin't he just have the spots dyed to match his natural hue instead of dying his whole body to match the spots??)

celebrities=no clue in today's world....

The man felt that being black wasn't good enough, so he was made white. Now THAT'S a racist!!!!!!!

Perhaps he ought to take a look in the mirror before criticising others (although it would scare the sh!t out of him!).....

Jackson is a child molester, who changed his skin colour because he was ashamed of being white. He is a disgusting monster.
