It’s a story that is going semi-viral today, but something that I thought was known already: Michael Jackson DID NOT sing during that one episode of The Simpsons when Homer does some time in a mental hospital a la One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Apparently Jackson DID voice the character, but his record label wouldn’t let him sing, so Jackson hand-picked an impersonator named Kipp Lennon.
Of course, all of this is via Yeardley Smith, the voice of Lisa, so maybe she doesn’t know everything? But this did come from the respected media outlet TMZ, so there’s that. But unless this comes from Matt Groening himself, I’m not sure what to believe. [TMZ]
