MJと王子の合意内容は … confidential

Details Of Settlement Remain Confidential (24-11-2008) A lawyer for Sheik Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa of Bahrain says the details of his legal settlement with Michael Jackson are to remain private. Attorney Bankim Thanki says the two sides have come to a confidential agreement that they will sign soon.
合意内容の詳細は秘密だそうです!
王子の弁護士によれば、マイケルとの訴訟和解金についての詳細は秘密だそうです。双方は極秘合意に達したので、すぐにも署名することになっています。

Neither Michael Jackson nor the sheik attended Monday's brief High Court hearing in London (UK).
そういうわけで、マイケルも王子も、ロンドンにある高等法院で月曜日に行われた短い聴聞会には出席しませんでした。

◆YouRockMyWorld 大好き



もともとマイケルの"You Rock My World"が大好きだったのだけど、去年このリミックスTag Team Remixを聴いて以来、 ヘビロテが止まりません。
だいたい好きなものにはしつこくて、全然飽きないわたし。
そこだけが、マイケル(ディズニー好き etc) との共通点です ^^

マイケルのこの歌詞は、もう英語そのままがステキなのですけど、いつか自分でも訳してみたいなぁと思います。素直でかわいくて正直なんです! マイケルのこういう素朴で飾り気のない愛に溢れた歌詞が好きです。わたしが好きな万葉集の歌と同様の感動を与えてくれます。

ボーカルの言葉の切り方、息継ぎの絶妙さとか震えるんですけど、そんなテクニックを超越して、温かいハートを感じさせます!

Grace was flabbergasted !

UKでのマイケルの裁判についての記事です:

Grace Rwaramba Testifies
(21-11-2008) Today, Michael Jackson's former personal assistant and nanny to his children Grace Rwaramba testified in London (UK) as a defense witness. She said that Sheik Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa, who is currently suing Michael Jackson, was a generous friend, eager to give Jackson money and other gifts. She also said that the sheik referred to Michael Jackson as his brother and frequently offered the singer gifts and money.


グレース・ルワランバが証言台に立ちました。
今日ロンドンで、マイケル・ジャクソンの元個人アシスタントで子どもたちの乳母を務めていたグレース・ルワランバが弁護側に有利な証言をする証人として証言台に立ちました。グレースによれば、マイケル・ジャクソンを訴えているシーク・アブドラ・ビン・ハマン・アル・カリファは気前のよい友人で しきりにお金やプレゼントをマイケルにあげたがっていたそうです。また、シークはマイケル・ジャクソンを自分のブラザーだと言い、ひんぱんにプレゼントやお金をあげていたらしいです。

"He would say, 'What can I do for my brother?' 'What can I give the children?' Mr. Jackson had a back pain and he told me to get Tiger Balm for him."

グレースは、シークがよく「僕のブラザー(マイケルのこと)に何をしたらいいだろう?」とか「子どもたちに何をあげたらいいだろうか?」と言っていたと述べました。

Rwaramba said she considered the sheik's behavior "sweet."

グレースは、シークのふるまいを親切だと思っていたそうです。

The money at issue includes sums of $35,000 and $1 million paid into Rwaramba's bank account by the sheik. Rwaramba said the money was intended for Michael Jackson, who did not have a bank account of his own. Rwaramba said she was "flabbergasted" when she received the first payment of $35,000, which she considered a large sum. She said the sheik "apologized that it was a little. He said next time it would be more." The court also heard that Al Khalifa paid for hotel rooms for Michael Jackson and his entourage and trips to Toys R Us to buy Christmas presents for the singer's guests.

問題のお金のなかには、シークからグレースの銀行口座に支払われた3万5千ドル(約350万円)と100万ドル(約1億円)も含まれています。グレースによると、そのお金は自分自身の銀行口座を持たないマイケル・ジャクソンのためだったということです。グレースは、最初に3万5千ドル受け取ったときには大金なので仰天したそうです。シークは金額が少ないことを謝ったそうです。そして、次回はもっと渡すと言ったそうです。法廷ではほかに、シークがマイケルと側近のホテル代金と、一行がお客のためのクリスマスプレゼントを買うためにトイザラスに行ったときの代金も支払ったことが語られました。

Rwaramba said the sheik never suggested any of money would have to be paid back.

グレースは、お金を返さなければならないなどとはシークにまったく言われなかったと語りました。
