The Los Angeles Times [ http://LATimes.com ] is reporting that Jackson's never-released September 11 charity single, "What More Can I Give?," was halted by the Gloved One's own advisers after they found out the song's producer had ties to the gay pornography industry.
The revelation appears to contradict Jackson's claims earlier this week that Sony blocked the release of the song as part of its alleged "conspiracy" against him. The song, featuring artists such as Mariah Carey, Ricky Martin and Justin Timberlake, was performed just once, at
the post-9-11 benefit concert in Washington, D.C., last November.
Last weekend, the erstwhile King of Pop marched through the streets of Harlem, flanked by the Reverend Al Sharpton and lawyer Johnnie Cochran as they protested the music industry's treatment of artists--most notably, Sony's treatment of him. The threesome have formed a coalition aimed at investigating whether the industry is cheating artists out of profits.
But according to internal documents obtained by the Times, the "What More Can I Give?" debacle can't be blamed on Sony. Jackson's advisers purportedly asked the music giant not to release the single after they found out the popster had hired F. Marc Schaffel [a.k.a. Marc Frederics] as the executive producer, and that Jackson also gave Schaffel the rights to the song.
Of course, Schaffel's resume also includes producing and directing "dozens" of gay porn videos.
"It's no secret that my background is in the adult film business," Schaffel told the Times. "I don't keep anything in my life hidden. I'm Michael's friend ... I think this was just a smokescreen sent to shut this single down because of a bigger fight going on. It's a shame because, in the end, so many people could've been helped."
