"Extra's" Michael Corbett visited the lavish, $25-million Bel Air palace Michael Jackson was negotiating to buy right before his untimely death in June 2009.
The 20,000 square foot, 15 bedroom, 16 bathroom mansion was modeled after the White House and Versailles. Coldwell-Banker agent Sally Forster Jones said Jackson "just walked in and gasped. He heard about it the property, came to view it and loved it, loved every aspect of it."

On the third anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, daughter Paris paid tribute via her Twitter account Monday morning.
Paris switched from homeschooling to attend high school, and encountered some bullying. "People have tried [to bully], but it doesn't always work," Paris told Oprah in the interview that aired on "Oprah's Next Chapter.” "At school… and some people try to cyberbully me. They try to get to me with words, but that doesn't really work."
When asked by Winfrey if she thought her peers were jealous, Paris said: "Maybe, I don't know."
Mostly, a very cool and poised Paris talked about her dad and how much she still thinks of him. "I just like, remember something, and I smile," the teenager said.
Oprah Winfrey scored a sit-down with Michael Jackson’s only daughter, Paris, in which the teenager talks about life without her dad on “Oprah’s Next Chapter.”Oprah has an intimate conversation with the 14-year-old, who at one point tells the talk show queen, “It never gets easier,” in dealing with the loss of her father.

A personal, handwritten letter sent by Michael Jackson to ex-wife Lisa Marie Presley has been taken off the auction block.
The letter, written sometime between 1993 and 1996, read, "Smell here [arrow with box] Lisa I truly need this rest I haven't slept litterally [sic] in 4 days now. I need to be away from phones and Business people. I must take care of my health first Im' [sic] crazy for you Love Turd." (See the letter here).
According to the Wall Street Journal, the nature of the promotion will vary by country, but will include a TV commercial, special-edition Pepsi cans featuring Jackson's image, and chances to download remixes of his biggest hits.
Jackson first partnered with Pepsi in 1983. In 1984, his hair caught fire while filming a commercial for the brand.
Matt Fiddes, Michael Jackson's former bodyguard, is launching a legal bid to prove he is the later singer's son Blanket's biological father, reports the Daily Mail.
Fiddes, 32, announced in the British newspaper that he's headed to Los Angeles to demand visitation rights with the 10-year-old, whose legal name is Prince Michael II. "I am going to lodge my DNA and formally ask the Jacksons for access. I want visitation rights," said Fiddes. "Michael is their father and I do not want that to change, but I want the children back in my life... I think Blanket is mine, but I want final proof," he added.
"Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" was the top weekend film, earning $70 million in the biggest opening weekend this year.
