Michael Jackson's 'Breaking News' Contested

The controversial song is finally released. What do you think?

The late Michael Jackson

There has been mad drama over Michael Jackson's posthumous single "Breaking News," which the Jackson family initially stated was fake to such an extent that the singer's mother released "Opis None," supposedly from Jackson's personal music vault. Mrs. Jackson's business partner Howard Mann subsequently issued a statement suggesting that "Opis None" may not be "authentic," with fans going crazy, shutting down fan sites in protest of how the singer's music is being handled. Perhaps Mrs. Jackson will be able to clear up the confusion during her interview on the Oprah Winfrey Show today, which will also be the first time that Michael Jackson's kids are interviewed. In the meantime, check out the songs "Breaking News" and "Opis None" and tell us what you think. Is it the King of Pop or not?
