I just saw a special on msbnc, which was an interview with Michael Jackson before he died. He said his father always insulted him about his nose so he was self-conscious about it. That is why he had the surgery done on his nose.
That is why I don't believe everything I hear. Some stories get distorted. I have heard that he wanted to be white, too. All along, it was a skin disease.
I also do not believe those molestation charges against him and I will tell you why...
1. Any parent who feel a person is a pedophile would not send their children to that person's home. When these people kept sending their children after all the speculation, I felt that they either were not good parents or looking for a cash cow. I have a feeling, some kid will step up and admit he lied on Michael Jackson.
2. Anytime there is speculation that someone did something, some people will take it to the limit and use it to their advantage. He was never found guilty of this and in this country everyone is innocent until proven guilty. He settled out of court because he got tired of the sideshow act depicting him as a pedophile and just wanted to get pass the rhetoric and get on with his life (per his interview on msbnc). So, I cannot say that I blame him.
3. Michael loved children and would do them no harm. Mentally, he was a child himself, which is probably why he didn't make the brightest of decisions.
