Audiences are far too splintered to fall in line -- and in love -- en masse with a single recording artist today the way they could for Michael Jackson in the eighties and nineties.

I came in contact with the Jackson 5 in 1971. Berry Gordy insisted that we take this new group -- these kids out of Gary. But Rev. Jackson didn't want these "kids" interfering with the main show.

Jackson would have been better off if "I Want You Back" wasn't in our iTunes libraries. He would have been better off if Off The Wall had never come out. If no one had ever heard of Bad or Thriller.

State of Play is the sort of movie that "they just don't make anymore." Despite its attempts to include newfangled ideas regarding journalism, it is a refreshingly old-fashioned star-driven thriller.
