Why does MJs music continue to get air time but Rolf Harris is banned?
Many musicians such as Elvis, Jim Morrison etc slept with youngsters but their music is not banned. MJ in particular. Rolf Harris was tame compared to Elvis and MJ. Why ban the music of Rolf Harris but not MJ or Elvis?
You're kidding, right? Surely you're aware that Rolf Harris was found guilty on multiple charges. Michael Jackson was subjected to the full force of prosecution but found not guilty. To the best of my knowledge, Elvis was never charged with that kind of offence.
And who exactly are you to claim that Rolf Harris was 'tame compared to Elvis and MJ'? Is there something you know that the rest of the world doesn't?
Lisa Marie was well under age when involved with Elvis. MJ had numerous under age court settlements. Jerry Lee married an underage girl. Jim Morrison slept with countless under age girls. The list is endless.
MJ had only one court settlement. Lisa Marie was Elvis's daughter! Elvis met Pricilla while in Germany. The legal age of consent in Germany is 14 It's said he did not have sex with her until after they married (8) years later when she was 22
Priscilla was 14 when Elvis met her and not 13. In Germany their legal age of consent for sex is 14. As for MJ, legally settling out of court does not mean a person or a company is "guilty"! They just want to avoid an expensive protracted fight.
Oztinato, Your original question was: Why does MJ's music continue to be played? I stated the more popular a person is odds increase that people will separate their life from their art. Director: Roman Polanski rcv'd an Oscar and he's a rapist!
Yes you did. However I stand by explanation of (why) there is so much hypocrisy. If Rolf Harris sold 100 million albums and won multiple Grammy awards my guess is (his music) would still be played. My assertion is (popularity) seems to matter.
I along with many others have never heard of Rolf Harris! Even without any charges against him I don't believe most people would mention his name in the same breath as Elvis, MJ, or even Jim Morrison. How many millions of albums/CDs has Rolf Harris sold? If he were a true "superstar" everyone would have heard of him.
No one said it's okay to molest children. My point is very few people ever heard of Rolf Harris! The bigger a star is the more people are likely to separate their life from their art. This is very common throughout history. Do you get my meaning?
Dscorp That is getting close but also proves what I am saying. The law does not agree with you. There is huge hypocrisy involved. People who love Elvis would literally murder anyone else who did the same thing.
Except in MJ's case he was never found guilty. Not only that, but after he died one of the kids he supposedly slept with, now an adult, came forward and admitted his father put him up to the whole thing in an attempt to get money out of MJ.
