Damn, that's disgusting. I didn't know MJ was photographed partially nude with his nephews, but I sure don't doubt it!!! Wonder if he molested his nephews, hell I even wonder if he touched his own sons. I wondered from day 1 why he didn't want them to have a mother. That freak was out of his mind.
I think he did. He used to have one-on-one sleepovers, with his cousin's children Simone and Rijo. Their testimonies were quite shocking. The defense brought them in to discredit the Arvizo boys. Under cross-examination, the D.A. got them to admit they had each slept alone with Michael. Simone was eight years old when she repeatedly slept alone with Michael. Rijo was around ten years old when he slept alone with Michael and an open bottle of jesus juice. Only god knows how many family members's children spent "quality" time alone with Uncle Mike, in the same bed.

Oh God, when Al Charlatan went on about MJ being the "ultimate" barrier breaker, I remember groaning, thinking "how would Bill Cosby, Sammy Davis, Jr., Louis Armstrong, Joe Louis, Jackie Robinson, Ray Charles, the Supremes, Sidney Poitier, Diahann Carroll, Stevie Wonder, the Four Tops, Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin feel hearing this?"
I know Sammy, Louis, Joe, Ray & Jackie are dead but still...
And MTV don't even play videos anymore so it's a moot point. Also how would Prince have felt hearing that? The dude practically was a rock and roll musician anyway and not only that but he was able to get play on R&B, pop, new wave, dance and rock stations and was also on MTV before MJ.
But apparently to some, he played "second fiddle" to MJ? Please.
Have any of those people ever said anything about Michael's claim? After "Thriller", I didn't like any of Michael's work. In addition, the years between each recording became greater and greater. In the meantime, Prince put out recording after recording. He's still creating work.

To answer that question about any of them saying anything about MJ's claim, it's silence lol

Very interesting! Publicly, they probably thought it was a waste of time. Privately, I'm sure they had plenty to say...and then got on with their work.

Diana Ross has said some interesting things about MJ. For instance, she didn't believe his explanation for why he wrote "Muscles" for her. In fact, fans are stuck trying to explain that song. Michael's explanation didn't make sense. I think he said something about "what Diana wanted". Another story was that he was "inspired" to write the song after playing with his boa constrictor (who was also called "Muscles" for some reason). Diana also couldn't understand why MJ was using plastic surgery. When she was told Michael wanted to look like her, she said, "I LOOK LIKE THAT!?!" In 1993, when the allegations broke, I remember this, they approached her for a comment and instead of saying "I love Michael, he would never do this", she just laughed, said "no comment" and kept on walking lol

His f'loons are always out to make superfluous statements to appear like MJ pioneered the entire music industry. Little do they realize so many more had a much more bigger impact then their precious MJ.

Yeah. Which disappoints me when his Wikipedia article has mentions of him being some pioneer of something musically. Maybe music videos. But that's about it. And even then, it was something we already had seen before in Bob Fosse movies and the West Side Story. He never evolved past that after the "Thriller" era. His last great video was "Smooth Criminal" and then it was really downhill after that. The breaking barrier story is revisionist crap.

The Wikipedia articles are so biased in favour of Michael Jackson. Don't ever rely on wikipedia to give you neutral information about Michael Jackson or anything related to him. F'loons have had a heavy influence, particularly in regards to the two criminal cases against him. You can tell it all comes from f'loon perspective. I'm very skeptical when I go into wikipedia, especially if a f'loons recommends it. Because they know it's a free site anyone can edit it.

Perhaps it's time to end their influence. They've done enough damage.

I wish it were that easy Len. I've tried and the effort is in vain. There are too many f'loons editing that stupid site, that's why I don't count on anything from Wikipedia. Be it Michael Jackson or any other controversial topic or figure in the mainstream media. You will find people from both sides are engaged in edit wars and it's a huge massive headache if you involve yourself with these articles. F'loons are closed-minded and they gather more f'loons to muddy up an already tumultuous place, which was originally meant to be educative.

Who set up Wikipedia? Perhaps that person(s) need to be approached. Of course, I don't take Wikipedia seriously. It's too easy for anyone to add or delete information.

I believe his name is Jimmy Wales. The site is mostly run by a committee of administrators who have extra editing tools then regular users. I believe many f'loons are likely administrators and likely plays a role in why the Jackson articles are one-sided in his favour.

I think he did too. The more I discover about him, the more I see he really had no regard for anyone but himself. It really is sick for him to have had "sleepovers" with his own nieces and nephews, in addition to everyone else. Hard to understand what his siblings were thinking by allowing their kids to sleep with him! I got kids of my own and if one of their uncles expressed interest in sleeping with them, hell no would I allow it and nobody in my family ever been accused of child molesting! No sick perverts in my family, just sayin if a grown man- relative or not-*wants* to sleep with a child, something's not right. Let alone a grown man accused multiple times of molesting kids. Some sick stuff!!!

^ It makes me think Tito's son was lying when he said a maternal relative molested him. I'm starting to think a PATERNAL relative molested him and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out who it was!

Right on! I read Wikipedia's version of events and it's obviously been edited by f'loons. That site can only be taken with a grain of salt. I was stunned in college to see the number of classmates that didn't know that anybody can add information to Wikipedia, be it factual or not, and that was years back. Shoot, my professors would immediately fail papers that used Wiki to cite research info. Whoever added the info on MJ conveniently left out all evidence that reveals his guilt. YouTube f'loons actually use Wiki as a source of "facts", lol.

I mean why wait all those years to say you were molested? It seems calculating. Even Tito was shocked by that. Tito's son is over 30. Who knows how many brothers Dee Dee had but he was always around his father's side of the family, not his mother's! That should tell you all you need to know about his statement.

There's also that story that Michael molested Jermaine's son Jourdynn and authorities had even wanted to interview the boy's mother (Margaret) who denied it because of what Jourdynn had told her. I think Michael slept with Jourdynn (and younger brother Jeremy).

He obviously wasn't close to his darker-skinned relatives (Rebbie's kids - one of them, Stacy, was seen trying to run away from MJ when MJ was grabbing her trying to get her to talk, it was from one of the Jacksons' home videos when they visited Rebbie in her Tennessee home; Jermaine's other kids didn't recall MJ being that affectionate; Jackie's son Dealz; Randy's kids, Marlon's kids, etc.) but the lighter-skinned mixed ones (Jourdynn, Jeremy, all of Tito's three sons, Simone, Rijo, and possibly Brandi - there's a shot of "uncle Michael" bouncing a 7-year-old Brandi up and down his knee, ironically enough Brandi looks like she could be Joe's child with another woman and Jackie adopted her to cover up a possible scandal) caught his fancy.

Yeah, MJ surely wasn't too interested in darker skinned kids and he made that brutally obvious. MJ hated being black and that's been clear since the early 90's. Hell, even one of his staff members stated how MJ said he didn't care what people thought of him having "little white boys" always around him. It's baffling how anybody can say he "broke down racial barriers". I got to check out those home movies you mentioned, sure doesn't surprise me though.

MJ was certainly told to bleach his skin and undergo plastic surgery to appear with white racial features since at the time black music was not pop.

Then once rap or hip hop took off and the white kids started dressing and acting like the blacks, MJ was no longer politically correct. He had to be eliminated.

Same was earlier true of other entertainers including Elvis. He was partially a Gospel Singer.

Thru pop-culture society has been social-engineered to bring in president Obama, and subjugate the majority white American population who happen to be Protestant.

There's a death cult running Hollywood. There are many films about this. One of the more popular: They Sold Their Souls for Rock n Roll.
