Michael would be rolling over in his grave if he heard this…or maybe moonwalking:
Hackers have attacked the Sony Music archives and stole the entire [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Michael Jackson[/lastfm] back catalog of songs, including unreleased material from the Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad sessions, sources told UK’s Sunday Times.
Cyber thieves reportedly made off with over 50,000 digital files. The record company has since plugged the massive leak. Sony paid Jackson’s estate $250 million in 2010 for the King of Pop’s entire library of recordings.
Meanwhile, you can scratch [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Janet Jackson[/lastfm] off the long list of female singers whose names have been rumored to be in consideration to replace two of the ex judges on NBC’s singing talent reality series The X Factor.
Jackson’s baby sister told TheInsider.com that she’s “very flattered that X Factor let me know that I was being considered for next season, but it just wouldn’t be possible.” ~JZ.
