I was disturbed recently by the biography I read of Michael Jackson on iTunes while I was waiting to download MJ Immortal. It is a very lengthy biography and it discusses Michael’s life in-depth but not in terms of what he did do for the world; his humanitarianism, his love for children and his craft but focussed on the turbulent times of his life, the 1993 allegations and the 2005 trial, plastic surgery and other nonsense. It is disappointing that one cannot download music of Michael without reading the negative. This is not a biography but another witch hunt and tabloid scheme to make people who are unaware of Michael’s life believe the worst. Below is the link to the iTunes biography.
UPDATE: Thank you to Qbees for providing the information on who wrote this biography. Steve Huey, from AllMusic wrote this cookie cutter biography that is used on many websites including iTunes, Yahoo, MTV and Artist Direct. Please find below the link to the sites that use this biased and untrue biography and comment where possible.

Would appreciate an accurate bio of Michael Jackson on iTunes. Please edit.
Please keep retweeting and emailing this out. (Please remember to change the name of the website that the biography is on i.e. change tweet from iTunes to MTV).
I urge you to tweet and email them all. We need to stop this abuse of Michael and change this biography to show his philanthropy, his music and his love for human kind. We must “raise our voice as one” to speak for Michael who can no longer speak for himself.
