Jacksons vs AEG day 15
LOS ANGELES (AP) — AEG Live LLC did not conduct any background checks or supervise Dr Murray, a corporate attorney testified Tuesday (May 21st) inthe lawsuit claiming the concert promoter was negligent in hiring the physician. AEG Live General Counsel Shawn Trell told jurors that no legal or financial checks were done involving Conrad Murray or anyone else who worked as an independent contractor on the "This Is It" shows. Katherine Jackson is suing AEG claiming it failed to properly investigate Murray, who was deeply in debt when he agreed to serve as Michael's tour physician in 2009 for $150,000 a month. Trell said he thought a background check would be appropriate for people working in financial roles, but not tour personnel who weren't employees of AEG.

Jacksons vs AEG day 14
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael's doctor was not the only person working on his "This Is It" tour without a fully executed contract, a corporate attorney for concert promoter AEG Live LLC testified Monday, May 20th. The tour's director Kenny Ortega was being paid based on an agreement laid out solely in emails, AEG General Counsel Shawn Trell told jurors. In court, attorneys for Katherine Jackson displayed emails sent a month before the death of her son in which Murray's contract terms were laid out. Trell said those emails did not demonstrate an employment relationship — a key element of the case that will be decided by a jury of six men and six women.

Janet talks about "janet" album and new album
Billboard has an exclusive interview with Janet in celebration of her "janet." 20th anniversary today, May 18.
