An FT article about Sony's record-breaking $250 million settlement with Michael Jackson's estate says:
Unlike other headline-grabbing deals with artists from Madonna to Robbie Williams, it will not offer Sony any future revenues, such as those generated from merchandising and touring.I had not expected Michael Jackson to be doing any more touring in the circumstances.
But - unless the cadaver is to be carried around Europe like some kind of medieval saint's relics - there is an explanation. And that explanation can only be this:
Jackson donated his body, before he died, to Gunther von Hagens' Body Worlds (Körperwelten) exhibition.
You want more evidence? Remember the famous O2 Centre concerts Jackson was about to perform when his death was announced? In July and August 2009? Just look at this little snippet.
"The Mirror of Time" indeed...
