Michael Jackson’s album Bad is set to be re-released and will include new songs and a never-seen-before concert video, reports thecelebritycafe.com.
Bad 25 commemorates the 25th anniversary of the original, Grammy-winning album with hits like “The Way You Make Me Feel” and it will include demos and songs that didn’t make the final cut of the original version.
The new songs were recorded in Jackson’s studio while he was making the album, and the package also offers a DVD of Jackson’s performance for Britain’s Prince Charles, Lady Diana and 72,000 fans at London’s Wembley Stadium in 1988.
The video was discovered in the singer’s personal collection, and thought to be the only copy of the performance, taped for Jackson’s own use.
MJ wanted to marry Brazil’s TV show host?
Meanwhile, in other news, Brazil’s children’s television show host Xuxa has revealed that the King of Pop wanted to marry her, reports AFP.
Maria da Graça Meneghel, better known as “Xuxa”, made the surprise disclosure in a television interview that shocked the country late Sunday. “The entourage of Michael Jackson wanted him to marry and have children. They were looking for someone. At that time, I was working in Spain and they invited me to see his show several times,” she told TV Globo’s Sunday programme “Fantastico”.
“Later they called me to invite me to Neverland (Jackson’s ranch) where I had dinner with him,” Xuxa said. “And then came a proposal from his impresario asking me whether I would consider living with him because he wanted to marry and have children.” She further added, “For me Michael was an idol, but from idol to something else, there is a difference. My answer, obviously, was ‘no’.” (With additional information from REUTERS)
