Right now you can go see our first ever video on my YouTube channel (link in bio) we know that this is a very rough first video but we want to take you on the journey with us as we improve and develop the show." Prince, 22, wrote. "As usual all input is welcome here or in the YouTube comments. Expect more to come y’al." The first video reviews Avengers: Endgame also features special guest James Sutherland.

The eldest child of Michael Jackson is a college graduate! Prince Jackson, 22, whose real name is Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., graduated with cum laude honors from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles Saturday with a bachelor’s degree in business administration. "I met so many people and learned so much that the experience alone is worth it," he wrote alongside graduation pictures with his loved ones, including grandmother Katherine Jackson. "I wish I could thank everyone that helped me make it to the end but I can’t and unfortunately they’re not all pictured here." Prince added: "Honestly I can’t tell you if all of it was worth it yet but I am proud of my degree as I believe it is a testament to my dedication and discipline."
The graduate gave a special shout-out to his cousin T.J. Jackson, who served as his guardian with Katherine after his father died. "The biggest thanks goes to @tjjackson9 and his brothers (Taryll Jackson) and (Taj Jackson) who kept pushing me to graduate and finish up my degree when I wanted to quit," he wrote. Prince continued: "I’m thankful for LMUs education of a whole person and the implementation of Jesuit values because I believe they inspire graduates like me to continue to change the world for the better." Prince's proud cousin was at the commencement ceremony. T.J. wrote a touching message to the graduate alongside a picture of Prince decked out in his cap and gown.
"Prince, it’s been a long road but you did it," T.J. wrote Saturday. "Keep learning, keep growing and keep giving back! So so proud of you." La Toya Jackson and younger brother Prince Michael Jackson II, who is nicknamed Blanket, as well as grandmother Mrs Katherien Jackson were also by his side. Prince's younger sister Paris Jackson shared a picture of her brother on her Instagram Stories, simply writing, "I'm so proud."

Afgelopen dinsdagochtend werd in alle vroegte het iconische beeld van popster Michael Jackson verwijderd bij het McDonald’s filiaal in Best. Hiermee stond Best in één klap op de wereldkaart. De actie van McDonald’s heeft geleid tot duizenden woedende reacties van Michael Jackson fans, niet alleen in Nederland maar over de hele wereld.
Het beeld stond er al 23 jaar. Opvallend is dat tijdens de rechtszaak van 2005 – waarin Michael Jackson werd beschuldigd van kindermisbruik maar op alle 14 punten volledig werd vrijgesproken! – het beeld gewoon is blijven staan. McDonald’s geeft aan dat de aanleiding om het beeld nu wel te verwijderen is dat ze vrezen dat door de film Leaving Neverland Michael Jackson ook onprettige gevoelens bij klanten op kan roepen. Deze film is echter ongelooflijk eenzijdig, alleen gebaseerd op verklaringen van twee mannen, en juridisch niet hard te maken. Het tijdstip van het verwijderen van het beeld is extra vreemd, omdat de afgelopen weken juist steeds meer onwaarheden en tegenstrijdigheden van Leaving Neverland aan het licht zijn gekomen. Dit heeft er zelfs toe geleid dat Dan Reed, de regisseur, afgelopen week heeft moeten toegeven dat er inderdaad fouten in zitten. Dus waarom juist nu het beeld verwijderen vragen de fans zich af?
De fans hadden liever gezien dat McDonald’s met hen in gesprek was gegaan om gezamenlijk een oplossing te zoeken om eventuele ongemakken bij klanten weg te nemen. Bijvoorbeeld door McDonald’s te faciliteren met de inmiddels gevonden feiten en (on)waarheden van Leaving Neverland, zodat deze bij de vestiging in Best verspreid konden worden. Helaas heeft McDonald’s er voor gekozen het beeld in alle stilte te verwijderen.
Het beeld werd jaarlijks bezocht door duizenden mensen die hiervoor speciaal naar Best kwamen, ook vanuit Duitsland, België en Frankrijk. Ook werd het beeld veelvuldig door buitenlandse toeristen bezocht. Bij het team van MJ INNOCENT NL* zijn van over de hele wereld vele verontwaardigde reacties binnengekomen, o.a. uit de Verenigde Staten, Groot Brittannië, Frankrijk en zelfs China!
Onderling spreken de fans al over een wereldwijde boycot van McDonald’s. Dankzij social media verspreidt dit bericht zich razendsnel. In Nederland zullen de fans – naast een boycot - hun verontwaardiging kracht bij zetten door op maandag 8 april tussen 10.00 uur en 11.00 uur een auto met billboard van Michael Jackson, waarop wordt verwezen naar de informatie website mjinnocent.com, langs het hoofdkantoor van McDonald’s in Amsterdam te laten rijden. Het mobiele billboard doet daarna op de route tevens Paradiso aan, die onlangs een tribute voorstelling rondom Michael Jackson annuleerde.
* Deze actie wordt georganiseerd door MJ Innocent team NL, een eigen initiatief dat niet handelt op naam van maar waar wordt verwezen naar mjinnocent.com. Het MJInnocent-project is een wereldwijd netwerk van mensen die ervan overtuigd zijn dat Michael Jackson onschuldig is. Zij richten zich op waarheidsvinding en baseren zich hierbij nadrukkelijk op feiten. Het publiek kan kennisnemen van deze feiten op de website www.mjinnocent.com, waarop de informatie in meerdere talen, inclusief Nederlands, wordt aangeboden.
On Monday 8 April, a billboard truck stopped at McDonald's Netherlands headquarters in Amsterdam (for an hour) as a way for Dutch Michael Jackson fans to show the outrage for the fastfood brand removing the Michael Jackson statue at its restaurant in Best last week. The truck also stopped at pop venue Paradiso (for half an hour) that cancelled a Michael Jackson tribute show.
Neverland Firsthand: Investigating the Michael Jackson Documentary is a mini-documentary by Liam McEwan which further explores allegations made in HBO’s Leaving Neverland, that the King of Pop sexually abused two young boys. Through interviews with those closest to the situation, including Taj and Brandi, the film sheds light on information that was excluded from Leaving Neverland and its original HBO’s broadcast. Sexual violence is never to be taken lightly. This film was not made to degrade victims or devalue their statements.
Taryll Jackson has announced that his new album is titled Crazy Love and will be available on 21 April. The new album contains 10 tracks and will be available on all digital music platforms worldwide. Ahead of the album release, Taryll Jackson released the single "Without Your Love" on 8 April which is available on all digital music platforms worldwide. Taryll is excited to perform his very first solo performance on June 8th at the Melkweg in Amsterdam, The Netherlands! He will be performing songs from his previous released EP’s My Life Without You and Undeniable and the new album Crazy Love.
Over the past few weeks, especially TAJ and BRANDI continued to speak truth and facts on various shows over the past few weeks, such as Nicole’s View, The Rageaholic with RazörFist, Uncensored Truth Podcast, Hollywood Unlocked, Michael Trapson, John Ziegler (Taj episode, Brandi episode), Kyle and Jackie O show KIIS 106.5, 2DayFM Breakfast and Jodie & Soda Mix 102.3. TAJ, TARYLL and TJ also spoke out in French media including TV show Balance Ton Poste. SIGGY did interviews for Beach City Radio and The Cruz Show (Power 106 FM) and on Fox News. And AUTUMN joined the Australian radio show Fitzy & Wippa (Nova 96.9) to defend her uncle Michael and she did interviews for Finnish newspapers iltalehti and Ilta-Sanomat.
Janet Jackson was one of the legendary artists to receive the honor at the ceremony held at Barclays Center in New York City on Friday night. Janelle Monáe -- who introduced Jackson and paid tribute to her with her outfit -- called her "the legendary queen of black girl magic." "She is a bold visionary, a rule breaker, a risk taker and a boundless visual artist. Quite simply y'all, there is only one Janet," she told the audience. Jackson, who joined her late brother Michael Jackson and the rest of the Jackson 5 as members of the Rock & Rock Hall of Fame, then took the stage to thank her father, the late Joe Jackson, her mother, Katherine, and the rest of her family.
"I want to begin by thanking my incredibly strong family. My wonderful mother and father, as well as my sisters, my brothers. You guys never stopped believing in me," she said, before explaining how her father took her to a record label at age 14 and helped her get signed. It was my father's dream. He wanted me to become this great performer. He encouraged me, he was the first one to encourage me, and music became my passion. In 1997, my brothers were recognized for their musical contribution by being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and I was so proud of them," Janet expressed. "Tonight their baby sister has joined them."
Jackson also gave Paula Abdul a shout out, among the other celebrated choreographers she's worked with, admitting, "I never thought I was a good dancer." The R&B star also credited Questlove as "my biggest champion." Bucking tradition, however, the "Rhythm Nation" singer didn't perform during the ceremony, as is customary for inductees. Earlier in the day, Variety reported via a source that Jackson "declined to participate in a customary musical number because the event will be filmed for later broadcast on HBO," the same network that recently aired the controversial Michael Jackson documentary Surviving Neverland. Before taking the stage, Jackson, 52, posed for the cameras on the red carpet. The iconic singer looked glamorous in a long black gown that featured draping sleeves and black-and-burnt orange feathers on the hemline. The "Feedback" crooner paired the dress with long burnt orange gloves and had her hair in big curls.
Last month, Janet announced her Las Vegas residency at the Park MGM, which will kick off in May. The show, titled Metamorphosis, will explore the hit-making singer’s decades-long evolution and boast a dazzling effects show to match her reputation as a performer.
