---Do not believe everything they say in media, I am sure he was never a child molester, he was a person without a sense of "danger of being misunderstood", a child who never grew up. He was very talented.
I loved the way he lived his life to the extent possible the way HE wanted to - no one told him how to sing, how to dance, how to perform and how to produce - he had amazing talents and so much love. The movie THIS IS IT is very wonderful, I really had no idea who he was until I saw it.
I loved all the mystery surrounding his life. Did he have pedophilic tendencies or was it a platonic love for children? Was he gay, straight, or simply disinterested in sex completely? Did he have the capacity to love another adult human being? Was it all an act?
His life was one big question mark. I love that ambiguity.
I sort of grew up with Michael Jackson. I was around his age when the Jackson 5 first hit the music scene. Then later when he kicked out on his own I loved his music, but I did not like the man, or the man the press said he was. I hate child molestors. I watched his interview with Martin Bashir and thought his replies to be very very strange. An odd charcter indeed. Sorry he died young all the same.
no one really understands him... :-( he just wanted to be loved he's not a child-molester, pedophile or what, look what media done to him. media would do anything for money they will do a crap, and people would buy that crap.
My opinion is that Michael Jackson was a kid toucher, bottom line. I loved Jackson's music when I was a kid, but when he started bleaching his skin and wearing shin guards, I realized something wasn't quite right...
Since, Michael Jackson newest documentary is out about the late great artists departure. I became quite curious to see how the world feels about his legacy. Therefore, I'm launching this post to get feedback...
As a musician and music lover, I have grappled with an answer to this question since MJ's sad passing, if there ever will be one.To me, good music entertains us. But great music must inspire and fuel passion within us....
I think "Man In The Mirror" represents Mike best. He was about everything good. He wanted people to change their thinking and behaviors. This would change how people treat each other and the environment.
