Will.I.Am Tries to Get the Anti-Posthumous–Michael Jackson–Release Movement Going

Black Eyed Peas member Will.I.Am has been caught totally off guard by the news that a new Michael Jackson album will be released in November, and now he's speaking out against it: "I don't think that should ever come out. That's bad. He was a perfectionist and he wouldn't have wanted it that way. How you gonna release Michael Jackson when Michael Jackson ain't here to bless it? Now that he is not part of the process, what are they doing? Why would you put a record out like that? Because he was a friend of mine, I just think that's disrespectful. What's wrong with what he already contributed to the world? ... Freaking parasites!" "And wouldn't you guys rather hear a new Will.I.Am solo album?" he did not add. [AP]
