PARTY TIME: IT'S MICHAEL'S BIRTHDAY

Today is Michael Jackson’s birthday. While there are celebrations around the world, Sony Music and Jackson’s estate are focusing on a shindig in Las Vegas and a new release from Mark Ronson.

Sony Music and the Estate of Michael Jackson have released Michael Jackson x Mark Ronson: Diamonds are Invincible, Ronson’s take on some of Jackson’s biggest hits.    

“It was such an amazing, awe-inspiring and insanely intimidating task to put this together, although you’d need hours and hours to fit all of Michael’s classic tunes into one track,” Ronson said. “I wanted this to feel like being on the dancefloor at a sweaty, wild NYC club getting down to as much MJ as possible in five minutes. And I can’t wait for you to all hear the extended version coming soon.”

 Tonight in Las Vegas, after a performance of Cirque du Soleil’s ONE Michael’s children, brothers Jackie and Tito, and other celebrities will be on hand for the Diamond Birthday Celebration at the Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay, hosted by Sony Music and the estate. Ronson will be spinning the music and a surprise performance is in store.

In addition, BOSS will release a collection that includes a new edition of the suit Michael wore on the cover of Thriller and three unisex T-shirts, and Giuseppe Zanotti will release a limited-edition sneaker collection.
