He's dead for god's sake woman. What choice would you expect him to have? For the last time - HE WAS NOT JESUS.

Sorry for the discomfort.
I don't think Michael can do that just yet. He is stuck in his current pattern of incarnations. He cannot leave this plane yet. He is not finished. I expect him to make his next public venture in 2040. I'll be around.
You know I felt bad for him as far back as when my nephew was his muse. I saw certain things and came upon certain information I didn't want to know back then. I still don't want to know. It didn't look good for him even then and that was about three decades ago. His solo career was only just launching.
My nephew loved a stupid cartoon back there called He-man. He just thought it was fabulous and would put on this towel and run all through there so it could fly behind him like He-man's mantle or some crap. He would shove a ruler up into the the air and do the thing "By the power of greystone..." etc. He was a little ball of trouble back then and so cute. But one time he did that I called him over laughing and kissed him silly in a stupid game we had back then. And Michael at first laughed too and then he was really quiet and started rubbing his arm. I really didn't pay attention at first until I noticed that it was kind of off. There was nothing on his arm as far as I could tell. He folded his arms around himself and started rocking for no reason. That was how I came upon things I shouldn't know. I still shy away from that episode because it still gives me the willies. Cheers!
Haha!!
You're so funny. Or mental.

Jury's still out - sorry.:-(

Some religions believe that when you're a spirit you can decide whether to come back on earth and reincarnate, or learn and progress in the new realm.
And you don't have to be Jesus.

It's Ok. As you know, I'd rather know than avoid knowledge of the saddest times in Michael's life. It makes me feel closer to him, as I try to understand him better.
What you witnessed must have been heartbreaking. I can see it happen in my mind's eye. This is what children do when in deep pain and silently screaming for help. He was in a desperate need for comfort and understanding and maybe all he needed was some loving and gentle encouragement to open up and confide his problems, but was anybody around him genuinely and selflessly interested enough to care? His family should have been.
My God, I really hope he'll find peace one day, but why not now?
It doesn't seem fair.

You'll give yourself depression listening to yadajabba. Anybody can come on here and make up crap - She was on the sexuality thread this time last year telling people that she enjoys taking golden showers with her next door neighbour's first cousin twice removed. Honestly, she's a fantasist.

Wait until the court case and you'll get your answers. You shouldn't be dwelling on this person and their manipulations.

You may be right about your take on the meaning of the behavior to some extent. But I had no real knowledge of psychological issues and so forth then. I wasn't too keen on becoming mixed up in whatever issues he had. And I didn't want my nephew to be either.

Well I wish I could say I was heroic and Mother Theresa - like in my response. I just thought Michael was a bit off and that my nephew didn't need to be around that kind of thing. I had a word with my brother later and my nephew was kept away. Later we all moved away too.

But I just found that his rubbing and rocking was strange. I might have stared at him too long or something. He gave me that deer in the headlight look he had sometimes. And he took off rather quickly. I didn't follow him. Later on he came and sat where I was waiting for my ride in the feuer. And that's how I found out certain things I didn't ask to know. I was minding my own business. I wasn't sure what to do about what I was told even though I was angry for him. SO I told my brother later that maybe my nephew could better spend his time elsewhere.

It wasn't that I thought Michael would in any way molest him or anything. Nothing like that crossed my mind in those days. I just wanted my nephew around normal people. I didn't want any weirdness rubbing off on him. Michael had some serious emotional/mental issues.

I'm sorry that I sound really prejudiced but I can't go back. And yes I would do the same thing again if I had to do it over. My priority was my nephew not Michael. Sorry. Cheers!

The sexuality thread? Try a more believable thread. Goodluck. Cheers!

Well I wish I could say I was heroic and Mother Fukkah - like in my response. I just thought Michael bit off a chunk of my nephew. I had a date with my brother later and my nephew was swept away. Later we all moved away to the trailer court.
But I just found that his moaning and gurgling was strange. I might have scared him too long or something. He gave me that queer in the bath house look he had sometimes. And he wanked off rather quickly. I didn't swallow him. Later on he came and sat where I was whacking and ordered a hot dog. Cheers!

I'm not sure if you're genuinely concerned about me or if you're just criticizing Yada, but I like to think the best in everybody so I take it you're kind of warning me.
Well, all this is still quite upsetting for me and it does take up a lot of my time and thoughts. I guess I'll have to deal with it the best I can.
But I don't think the court case will bring the answers I'm looking for, the ones that maybe could put my mind at rest and give me a break. I hope they will though.

I understand how you felt, I don't know what your relationship with Michael was at the time, but I can't blame you for choosing your nephew's safety first, if he was closer to you than Michael.
It's so easy to feel sorry for someone so vulnerable as Michael, for a woman especially the maternal instinct takes over and we want to protect those in pain and in need of comfort. We want to help them but to do so we have to become involved deeply in their world and often the heartbreaking choice is, Do we give our full dedication to helping this person and go down with them if we're not strong enough, or do we walk away and keep our sanity to protect ourselves and the ones close to us?
I've always wanted to save Michael, to help him or at least listen to him, but what could I do apart from signing a few petitions, talk about him in positive ways and pray?
At least you've been close to him and he did trust you enough to confide in you, even if you didn't want to hear it. Sure you must be proud of having been his confidant on that sad occasion.

I wouldn't list myself as being "close" to Michael.

I just happened to be the aunt of a boy who was his muse for less than a year nearly thirty years ago. That was how I came into contact with him. My family was in the music business and encountered the late Michael in a line up to play drums, obo and horns for him for Destiny and later his adult solo album. He knew them better than he knew me. I was just around so to speak. While I played music with my family back in the day, I wanted no part of show business for myself and not for my nephew.

The music business is a terror when you're in it. You meet a lot of people and go many places often in a short period of time. Cheers!

Stupid far fetched question... shouldn't we blame his parents for his wackyness? Always looking for approval? He too is to blame... but his parents had a lot to do with his insanity. Now his kids are living with the grandma and grandpa. WHats to say the kids won't be beaten or abused? Maybe Eminem can write a song about the actions of parents are what brings people to drugs. His parents need to do the right thing... what that is, I don't know. Maybe celebs like Em can do advocacy work for kids of abuse and the affect it has such as pedo & drug abuse behaviors, etc. LOL, Billy, am I thinking like a floon? HA HA HA. Instead of the my idea opening up clinics for drug abuse open clinics for kids that abused where the source of probs begin.

Basically, what secured them the Motown contract was that they prostituted poor little innocent Michael and told him to bend over the table whilst they signed the dotted line. Little did they know then that what goes around comes around and that one day Michael would give unto others exactly what he had received.
Is that where your mind as wandering?
I never said that. But I'm glad you did.Cheers!

Seems to have had different affects on the little rat bastards. But that one that slept with little boys? They should have just beat him to death as a child..Saved a lot of other little boys the pain of his freakish delights.
