Listen to the mysterious new song from JB & MJ below:

Minds? Officially blown. So what's the deal here?

“Slave to the Rhythm” was a little-known Michael Jackson song that made its way online after his death. Michael’s vocals and lyrics remain intact here.

A heavier dance beat and Justin Bieber's contributions have been added, of course, making for a monster collaboration of unknown origin and authenticity.

Debbie Rowe, the mother of Paris Jackson, wept while talking about her on the witness stand Thursday at the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial.

"Their father is dead," Debbie Rowe lamented.

"I almost lost my daughter! She is devastated. She tried to kill herself. She is devastated. She has no life. She doesn't feel she has a life anymore."

Paris, 15, attempted suicide in early June.

She is still being treated in a facility for her emotional problems, ones Rowe believes have left her a shell of her former self, and at a loss for everything.

Debbie Rowe took the stand at the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial today, making for an insightful and profoundly emotional experience.

Jackson's ex-wife was ordered to testify by AEG Live, who the icon's family is suing for billions, citing the concert promoters alleged liability for his demise.

The Jacksons say AEG was negligent by ignoring warning signs, pushing MJ more than he could take, and hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to oversee his health.

On the stand, Rowe found herself explaining Jackson's relationship with his doctors, and with drugs, which turns out to be the centerpiece of the case.

Through tears, she lamented his longtime battle with addiction, saying, "His fear of pain was incredible and I think the doctors took advantage in that way."

"Michael expected doctors to do no harm. Unfortunately, some doctors decided when Michael was in pain they would try to help him, and so he listened."

Debbie Rowe is expected to testify at the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial that her ex-husband was addicted to Propofol 12 years before he died.

At least twice in the '90s, doctors misused a drug similar to Propofol, enabling MJ to sleep through the night - or so TMZ reports she'll tell the jury.

Debbie Rowe will be called to testify by AEG Live, though she views herself as a hostile witness, as she feels AEG is largely responsible for MJ's death.

She is expected to say that in 1997, doctors administered Diprivan (an anesthetic and form of Propofol) to Michael in a Munich, Germany hotel room. 

Rowe will say the drug was administered specifically so Michael could sleep.

Together!

Michael Jackson and Freddy Mercury

Three unearthed tracks Michael recorded with Freddie back in 1983 in what was supposed to be collaborative effort are apparently set to be released.

Initially, the collaboration fell apart due to the "constraints" of the two music superstars' busy schedules, as well as creative differences (so to speak).

Gene Simmons has rekindled his feud with Michael Jackson fans, refusing to dial down his previously-expressed belief that MJ was a child molester.

A fan group supporting Wade Robson - the dancer-choreographer who recently accused Jackson of child sex abuse - reached out to the KISS rocker.

Their Twitter exchange drew the wrath of Jackson fans, but Simmons, who was booted from an MJ tribute concert in 2011, would not back off.

The glam rocker retorted, “In 80s, i went out w/Diana Ross, we visited Michael Jackson. You don’t know me. Don’t make up things about me.”

Wade Robson, who accuses Michael Jackson of molesting him, says a big part of coming forward was that he wants to help child sex abuse victims.

The 30-year-old dancer/choreographer is launching his own foundation to help child sex abuse victims through new age healing, according to reports.

Robson founded a non-profit organization called "Hearts in Our Hands" on July 1.

His rep says the group will be dedicated to preventing abuse, and taking a holistic approach - meditation, therapy, yoga - to treating abuse victims.

Debbie Rowe will testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death case, and what she has to say about his drug use certainly won't help his family's cause.

Rowe will be called by AEG Live Tuesday or Wednesday, according to TMZ, and will say that as early as the 1980s, MJ was abusing prescription meds.

Debbie blames Jackson's good friend Dr. Arnold Klein - the rumored biological father of Prince and Paris Jackson, incidentally - for feeding the habit.

According to Rowe, Klein had a standing order from Michael. When he came to the dermatologist's office, he would be injected with Demerol and Vistaril.

The latter makes the former stronger, apparently, and turned Jackson into an addict, which Rowe said he tried to keep secret from her for years.

Dr. Conrad Murray really, really does not want to testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death case. That's just the impression we're getting lately.

In a voicemail to a friend, he threatens to drop a nuclear bomb on the entire case (so to speak) if he's forced to testify, and he says he's not bluffing:

It's the second time Murray has threatened AEG and the Jacksons with potentially destructive testimony, suggesting he has only BAD things to offer.

Curiously, this threat appears directed at both sides, so it's unclear exactly what secrets he's harboring ... but in any case, this is one scary dude!

The promoters of Michael Jackson's ill-fated comeback concerts watched him waste away and should have reached out to his family, his mother says.

Clutching a tissue, Katherine Jackson said she didn't know the extent of her son's weakness until after the start of her trial against AEG Live LLC.

"They watched him waste away," she said after her attorney cited several emails from workers preparing for the planned 2009 "This Is It" shows.

Jackson is suing AEG for billions, and the messages described her ailing son's condition as deteriorating and cited his inability to even rehearse.

"They could have called me," Katherine, 83, said. "He was asking me for his father. My grandson told me that his daddy was nervous and scared."
