He clearly was odd -- I just can't stand hearing about him anymore and haven't wanted to hear his music in very long time. He leased a home in my community and some spotted him out walking with couple of children -- they all wore full-faced masks. Feel sorry for any and all children ever around him.
Will You Stop Listening To Michael Jackson’s Music?
By the time these boys suffered the alleged abuse, it appears MJ was already a skilled pedophile groomer. Sooooo, my question is, where are the other victims? Could he also have been groomed? And how could there be this massive of a coverup by, well...everybody? I guess it can happen. And I'm not saying it didn't happen. There are just some gaping holes in the story that don't make sense to me.
I didn't care for how the director presented the program. The music, the editing, dunno...bothered me...can't quite describe what it is. AGain, not making light of the subject matter one bit...that is pure evil...horrible.
I agree, wacko jacko MJ is perhaps the biggest weirdo ever, and took liberties, and did things that were wrong, absolutely wrong wrong wrong. At this point, it still is the accuser's word against a dead man. And there is the money that Wade said he went for to make the Jackson family face up to who MJ really was. Okay...
I love his talent and music...don't feel like listening to it right now. .02.
Some good points made in this thread.
Simon made a good point on page 1 - his records shouldn't be played on the radio because it is actually his voice, his performance, as opposed to, say, a film made by a director accused of sex abuse. That's actually a good point that I hadn't even thought about.
I haven't seen the documentary, neither have I read newspaper articles.
I guess those of you who have seen the doc and kept up to date with this know more about it than me.
Interesting thread and discussion.
To remove his music from the radio is not a good thing. I am opposed to censorship. Was he a pedo? IMO he sure was and I was of that opinion in 93. He was a freak as most of hollyweird is. The problem is that most people can not separate the artist from the art. People tend to identify with a company, Nike, Chevy or an artist as themselves. Its a form of mental immaturity.
People tend to identify with a company, Nike, Chevy or an artist as themselves. Its a form of mental immaturity - but people make these kinds of links all the time.
Nobody in their right mind - save neo-Nazi freaks - calls their kids Adolf.
There must have been millions of people called Adolf but because of the evil things master-minded by just one, Hitler (or two if you count Adolf Eichmann), people don't name their kids or even pets Adolf. And yet the name Adolf never hurt anybody.
I wouldn't call it mental immaturity, it's a legitimate pov.
I didn't see the documentary, but I saw a clip of one alleged victim who said that he didn't understand that what Michael did was child molestation at the time.
MJ was alive to defend charges, paid some people off and they left happy. So it's a mixed bag.
Personally, I find it hard to imagine that counselors or some kind of professionals could not discover what actually happened back then. It tends to make me believe that money made everyone happy. But the money is gone now and MJ cannot defend himself. Along comes the documentary people.
If you were happy with the money at the time, then you are not really a victim- regardless of what MJ did. Or you are a victim of your parents accepting that the money was enough. Go get therapy and let the dead rest.
oops...I posted on the wrong thread...sorry!
