Jackson Source Exclusive - Austin Brown Interview in Paris

Austin Brown played his first two European gigs on July 1st and 2nd in a jam packed Théâtre de la Contrescarpe in the artistic Quartier Latin Paris. Austin totally killed and rocked it on stage with just a mic and a guitar showcasing his talents, his amazing personality, his love for music and premiering and a lot of his new songs. In the very up close and personal shows, Austin brought love peace, harmony and unity to Paris. Just minutes before the second gig, Jackson Source was fortunate to ask Austin a couple of questions about his new music, his upcoming single and about the chance for him to ever collaborate with any of his family members.

Billboard debuts Debuts Prince Michael Jackson-Produced "Automatic" Video

Rapper/singer Omer Bhatti plays super hero in the clip for his latest single "Automatic," making its debut on Billboard. Shot in less than a week, the video -- directed by Chris Perez and produced by Michael Jackson's son, Prince Michael Jackson -- was a collaborative artistic vision. "Automatic" serves as the full-length production debut from Prince Michael Jackson's King's Son Productions. Prince Michael, who stars in the clip, says, "It’s inspired by the cinematic music videos that my dad made back in the day. It's hard to describe what it was like working on this video. It didn't feel like work -- I was learning so much from all the crew members as well as having the good fortune to be working with close friends of mine." He continues, "Working on this project felt like the beginning of a dream come true. I remember being on set and seeing the magnitude of the set and realizing, 'Wow, we're really doing this.'"

  • Unfortunately negativity will always sell. I urge you all to ignore the trash & the parasites who make a career trying to slander my father.
  • The most pure people are always torn down.. It will continue to be proven that my beloved dad has always been and forever will be innocent
Jermaine Jackson on Twitter (22 June 2016)
  • RT 1: Sadly typical of imbeciles @RadarOnlineCom to recycle 'police report' story containing lies about Michael DISPROVEN long ago.
  • 2: What's more shameful in this age of 'clickbait' is how other media rushed to echo the recycled lie. Research & integrity be damned.
  • RT 3: All available evidence, reports & exhibits shown to jurors in 2005. Found him not guilty. Unanimously.
  • 4: FACT: RT @CEThomson Judge Melville signed off a press statement before trial which said prosecutors had confirmed no child porn was found.
  • 5: FACT: D.A. allowed one of Michael's accusers to handle adult mags at Grand Jury hearings...then bagged them for fingerprint analysis.
  • 6: FACT: One accuser, when shown porn mag, sd yes, that's what Michael showed him. Mag date: Aug 3rd... 5mnths AFTER boy left Neverland.
  • 7: The stitch up lies kept coming in court. Each one dismantled by defense Tom Mesereau. But media didn't trumpet his cross-examination.
  • 8: Thankfully, intelligent jurors scrutinised police's sloppy face-value case & found nothing criminal. Clowns @RadarOnlineCom more gullible.
  • FACT: Example of how the police made 2+2=100. But jurors in 2005 saw through it...

  • Who you going to trust more: the FBI or the low life @RadarOnlineCom? #facts

  • In death, Michael still suffers trial by media but his exoneration is enshrined in court transcripts 'journalists' are too lazy to read.
  • Let Michael rest in peace. Leave. Him. Alone.
Jermaine Jackson on Twitter (23 June 2016)
  • Michael's defense atty Tom Mesereau in : 'It's dated, outrageous, ridiculous information...completely rejected by a jury 11yrs ago"
Taj Jackson on Twitter (21 June 2016)
  • Looking into our legal rights as our band @TheReal3T was mentioned in a malicious article recently for a tabloid website.
  • Not only is there absolutely no truth to this story whatsoever, but I'm truly sick of this crap. #getalife and stop living off ours.
  • What happened to journalistic integrity and the truth. Is it all about making money and selling lies now.
  • Fake news travels fast. The world picked up this trashy story. There's such a race to be first, only a few checked to see if it's even true.
Taj Jackson on Twitter (22 June 2016)
  • A well-timed and planned out smear campaign targeting my uncle’s name. This is cyber bullying at it’s finest. The eagerness and willingness of world media outlets to copy and paste a headline and story from a click bait gossip blog is irresponsible and shameful. No one wishes this done to them, so why is it ok to do this to us?
  • MJfam, I need your help. Lets show the world our love for MJ on June 25th with the hashtag #MJforever. Spread the word now.
Taj Jackson on Twitter (24 June 2016)

While @radaronline is doubling up on its lies after being exposed, we are currently doubling up on our litigation.

TJ Jackson on Twitter (24 June 2016)
  • Lie+Lie+Lie = $$$ Shame on you @radar_online. My bros & I have the GREATEST UNCLE EVER. Leave Him Alone! #MJforever
  • You want to ignore it as it's so obvious they just want clicks for $ but it's incredibly difficult to allow my Uncle's legacy to be lied on.
  • You'd be surprise how "reputable" outlets recycle this garbage & sread to millions hiding behind the reasoning that we didnt directly refute.
Lies run Sprints, but the Truth runs Marathons.
