Dr. Conrad Murray will testify in the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit filed by Katherine Jackson, who is looking to collect damages from AEG.
Michael’s mother wants Murray to testify about comments he made in his documentary, in which Murray said AEG honchos told him MJ was on “death skid row.”
AEG, Murray claimed, boasted in 2009 that it owned “the toilet paper he wipes his ass with” and “the f**kin’ popsicles that his children are sucking on.”
Referring to his ill-fated This Is It concert dates, the promoter allegedly told Murray, Jackson’s physician, “if he doesn’t getMore >
A couple new Breaking Dawn Part 2 photos have hit the Internet, with one being especially apt.
It depicts Edward Cullen, seemingly alone, confused, lost in his thoughts. If Robert Pattinson had to reshoot this scene right now, we have a feeling he’d easily be able to summon those emotions.
Take a look below at Edward soliciting the help of the Denali coven to fight against the Volturi.
In the other just-released image, Edward and Bella are joined by a few Amazon friends, as trouble is clearly afoot and forces are gathering on both sides:

The 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton, celebrates his birthday today. The Big Dawg is now 66 years young. Happy birthday, Bubba!
William Jefferson Clinton, the pride of Hope, Ark., remains the only Democrat to win two full White House terms since Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Clinton presided over the largest peacetime economic expansion in U.S. history, and left office extremely popular, despite the whole impeachment thing.
Hey, no one’s perfect, right?
His wife, Hillary Clinton, is currently U.S. Secretary of State, and their daughter, Chelsea, says she’s consideringMore >
Bill Clinton was spotted mingling with his core constituency last night.
He also posted for a picture with a couple of porn stars. Obviously.
Across the pond for a “Night in Monaco” celebrity-filled gala at the Casino in Monte Carlo, which was also attended by actual stars like Diane Kruger, Joshua Jackson and Rose McGowan, our 42nd president met these ladies of adult film:
The porn goddesses flanking Bubba are Tasha Reign, 23, and Brooklyn Lee, 22. The latter won the 2012 AVN Award for Best New Starlet! Awesome!
Fortunately, despite the unusual pic, it was all for a charitable cause.
A month after Kony 2012, the documentary about the crimes of indicted Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, took the Internet by storm, a sequel has arrived.
A sequel that’s more of a follow-up to capitalize on the success of the original, which drew more than 100 million views on YouTube, but a sequel just the same.
The non-profit Invisible Children released a new film, Kony 2012: Part II – Beyond Famous, today. You can watch the 20-minute expose in its entirety here:
Kony 2012 drew attention to the reign of terror by Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army andMore >
Kirk Cameron’s recent comments to Piers Morgan on gay marriage and homosexuality in general – he’s not a fan, to put it mildly – are causing quite a stir.
Cameron, a born-again Christian, said on Friday’s show that he does not support gay marriage, and when it comes to homosexuality in general, he said:
“I think that it’s … unnatural. I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Piers then noted that if one of his sons told him he was gay, he’d say it’s great as long as he was happy, and askedMore >

Despite its role in earning him a four-year prison sentence, Dr. Conrad Murray doesn’t regret for a second filming the now-infamous documentary about his trial.
In said documentary, he said he didn’t regret his actions because he didn’t do anything wrong … a jury disagreed and convicted him of involuntary manslaughter.
The making of the film, which was released after Murray’s conviction but before his sentencing, in the Michael Jackson death trial, infuriated Judge Michael Pastor.
Murray’s lawyers freely admit he needed the money, but the Conrad Murray documentary was made primarily soMore >
Dr. Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years behind bars today, the longest possible prison term for involuntary manslaughter. Needless to say, Michael Jackson’s family is adamant that he deserves every day of that sentence, and then some.
His mother, Katherine Jackson, made that abundantly clear in recent weeks.
In Murray’s official Probation Report, Katherine lashes out at Murray for his documentary, in which he lays blame on Michael and denies any wrongdoing.
Katherine feels Murray’s four-year sentence is “insufficient.”
The report says, “During filming, he repeatedly stated that heMore >
President Barack Obama pardoned a turkey named Liberty at the White House today. But, as you know, most birds are not so lucky, even when politicians are nearby.
Just a few years back, in fact, one committed a major party fowl.
In this classic video from Thanksgiving 2008, then-Governor Pain pardoned a turkey and gave an interview with a local news station … during which things went awry.
Watch what happens in the background in the clip below:
The literal deathbed where Michael Jackson passed away is no longer for sale.
Incredibly, the bed where Jackson died actually was for sale until recently.
Julien’s Auctions has removed the queen-sized headboard from its auction of items from 100 North Carolwood Drive in Los Angeles, Jackson’s last residence.
“This item is the only portion of the bed that had been listed for auction, and no part of the bed remains for sale,” company president Darren Julien said.

In an interview conducted shortly before he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, Dr. Conrad Murray says he doesn’t feel guilty about Michael Jackson dying.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” the cardiologist insists.
The Today Show aired portions of an intense sit-down interview with Murray that was conducted before the guilty verdict was reached by a jury earlier this week.
In it, he completely contradicts what he told police.
During the interview, Murray says he put Jackson to sleep that fateful day, then left the room to talk on the phone,More >
La Toya Jackson is irate over the documentary featuring Dr. Conrad Murray to air on MSNBC. She’s demanding it be pulled out of respect for her brother Michael.
The late pop singer’s sister says the controversial documentary, which will air tomorrow, essentially gives “a murderer and convicted felon … celebrity status.”
Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, not murder, but MJ’s estate and fans are still understandably upset about the Conrad Murray documentary.
La Toya fired off a letter to MSNBC, claiming it’s outrageous that Michael cannot defend himself against Murray’sMore >
The jury has returned a verdict of in the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter trial. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson.
After less than two days of deliberation, the jury reached a verdict for the man who worked as MJ’s personal physician leading up to his ill-fated This Is It tour.
The panel buzzed the L.A. Superior Courtroom three times from the deliberation room this morning, signaling it had made a decision after the six-week trial.
The verdict was just announced, and Murray was found guilty.

Former political figure and current professional celebrity Sarah Palin is asking an Alaska judge to extend the restraining orders against her two stalkers.
Shawn and Craig Christy, a father and son from Pennsylvania, were jailed in Alaska back in August for threatening to kill Sarah, her family and friends.
Sarah Palin had obtained restraining orders against the men, but they will expire in November. Thus her formal request to extend the order into 2012.
For now, she has nothing to worry about. Craig and Shawn Christy are still awaiting trial and will remain behind bars until a court dateMore >
