60 Minutes tours Michael Jackson items, May 19th @ 7 pm EST

60 Minutes looks in Michael's closet!

Oh boy this should be great to see, but oh so bittersweet.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In life, Michael Jackson earned hundreds of millions and spent even more, accumulating an estimated half-billion dollars in debt towards the end of his life, when a tarnished image curtailed his earning power. In death, the King of Pop is doing just fine, however. He's never been more popular, with almost 60 million Facebook "friends," and music sales and business deals made by his estate have earned more than enough to repay his debt. Lara Logan reports on this unprecedented turnaround and gets a private tour of some of the personal items that meant the most to the late star for a 60 Minutes story to be broadcast Sunday, May 19 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.


While the Jackson Estate amasses millions through The Michael Jackson Immortal Tour, an acrobatic performance to his music by Cirque Du Soleil, iTunes and album sales, his possessions sit in storage. Nobody knows what they are worth. It's anybody's guess at what they could bring at auction with the right people biding.


Karen Langford, a friend of Jackson's who worked with him since 1981, is the archivist for the Jackson estate. She takes Logan for a tour of a warehouse full of Jackson's memorabilia.


The tour begins, appropriately, with the Neverland sign sitting on the floor of the 20,000-foot warehouse. It once sat atop the gates to his famous compound that included an amusement park, zoo and his mansion.


Inside, Logan sees Grammy awards, a fleet of cars, antiques, video games, and some of the clothing he wore on stage. The sequined glove he wore on the Billie Jean Tour, worth an estimated $80,000, is kept in a safe on premises.


Other things may not have obviously high value but were priceless to the star, including the wooden rocking horse given to Jackson by one of his closest friends, Elizabeth Taylor. "To MJ, Love ET," reads the inscription.


The items will be stored until Jackson's children come of age and decide what they want to do with them. Meanwhile, the revenue machine that has taken in over $600 million since the entertainer's death in 2009 -- more than any other single living artist has earned over the period -- is predicted to hum along for many years to come.

Sunday evening after the program, 60MinutesOvertime.com, the 60 Minutes web show, will present an even deeper look into the memorabilia few have ever seen since Jackson's death.

Note: These items are the pieces that MJ had predetermined (hence the archivist) would be saved for the kids to decide what they wanted to do with them. Finally this is disclosed so the millions that freak out everytime there is a couple MJ pieces auctioned calm down all the hysteria about this topic.

I plan to be go to the after show on the web tonight too Smile

When 60 Minutes' Lara Logan and producer John Hamlin toured a secret warehouse where Michael Jackson's personal effects are stored, they found a surreal collection of statues, arcade games, and crystal-encrusted clothing-- but the most fascinating item they found was a simple handwritten note.

"At the age of 21, he wrote a manifesto," explains Hamlin, "scribbled to himself on the back of a tour itinerary in 1979 that described his mission statement for what he wanted to become." The document is folded and worn, and it appears to be hand-written by Jackson in ballpoint pen during a moment of inspiration.

The document reads:

"MJ will be my new name. No more Michael Jackson. I want a whole new character, a whole new look. I should be a tottally [sic] different person. People should never think of me as the kid who sang "ABC," [or] "I Want You Back." I should be a new, incredible actor/singer/dancer that will shock the world. I will do no interviews. I will be magic. I will be a perfectionist, a researcher, a trainer, a masterer [sic]. I will be better than every great actor roped into one."

Logan, who reported on Michael Jackson's estate for 60 Minutes this week, said the letter was the most personal find in the vast warehouse of belongings she toured with archivist Karen Langford.

"One of the things that I discovered is that it was very hard to get a sense of who Michael Jackson was by the end of his life," says Logan. "Because under this siege of accusations and stardom, the real Michael Jackson kind of disappeared. I was hungry for a sense of who Michael Jackson was as a person, and what could be more personal than something he wrote like that when he was so young."

In the note, Jackson also expressed a desire to improve himself by studying the work of great entertainers. In the margin of the document he added this promise: "I will study and look back on the whole world of entertainment and perfect it, take it steps further from where the greats left off."

Hamlin, a music industry producer as well as a 60 Minutes producer, says about the letter: "It's not unusual for young artists, musicians, actors, to daydream about how big a star they wanna become, but for someone to write it down at age 21 and actually execute it almost to the T is remarkable. He set his goals, and he did exactly what he said on the back of that piece of paper."

Mad Guys you're not going to believe this, I completely forgot to watch this and just remembered a couple minutes ago! I was studying for finals this week and it never even occurred to me to put it on cbs at seven, should have set a reminder. I'll try to look for a video of it on youtube or something later- if anyone else finds one can you please put it in here?

Hi my friends.. well I get the coward award today because honestly before 60 minites MJ section came on I decided to get some food. I had all day to get something to eat but I waited right before MJ's segment, why? I don't know. I left the TV on and when returned and walked into the room MJ was moonwalking - I swear I got the chills- it was a shock to my system I can't explain it.. and then THIS IS IT part came on and i laid on my bed and had a meltdown.. Ok I'm sure I will find the broadcast on-line and watch it at some point, but a few hours before the show aired, a feeling came over me and I knew it was too soon. I've become stronger as this fourht anniversay is coming upon us, but certain Michael related things - like 60 minutes show - couldn't do it guys and I posted the dag on thing lol! . I hope you all enjoyed it though.

@Admin, honest I was one of those people that freaked out every time there an auction of MJ stuff and yes, now my spririt is calm because I know (from comments) that our dearest left so many things for his children. YAY! And those archived treasures are more special than anything else ever auctioned I'm sure. And that note... my gosh he is spectacular.. that man is amazing. He set his goals and he surpassed them..and isn't it something he mentioned "magic" and is very magical indeed. Michael is an inspiration

On the upside as I walked to work this morning - Don't Stop til you get Enough blared out of a car window at a stop light - the light stayed red for so long as I walked I could hear the song still ...
(Thanks for understanding my dilema Michael - you are MAGIC)
