Will.i.am Speaks Out Against New Michael Jackson CD


A posthumous Michael Jackson album is expected to be released in November. Like many other musical artists who have passed away, the King of Pop had a ton of  unreleased material which will soon be heard by the world.  Though this may sound like very exciting news, not everyone is thrilled, including Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am.

The "imma be" singer is very angry. "I don't think that should ever come out. That's bad," he said. "He was a perfectionist and he wouldn't have wanted it that way. How you gonna release Michael Jackson when Michael Jackson ain't here to bless it?"

The singer probably has a unique insight as he and MJ worked together on the re-release of  "Thriller" back in 2008.  He witnessed first-hand how involved Mike was in the whole process from the vocals to the instruments used on the records.

He continued, "Now that he is not part of the process, what are they doing? Why would you put a record out like that? Because he was a friend of mine, I just think that's disrespectful," he said. "What's wrong with what he already contributed to the world?"

Will.i.am is fully aware of the demand for more MJ music but he doesn't care: "So what? You don't disrespect someone when they're gone. ... How much can you suck from his energy? ... Freaking parasites!"

We can't imagine fans being upset over getting more Michael Jackson.  Anything that was created by the icon is still considered sacred to millions of people globally.
