Relax. Unlike yours, MY opinion on the subject is qualified.
You must be looking at someone else's painting. The one I saw was of THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN...

FYI, art interpretation is something everyone is qualified to have an opinion on. And yes, you are allowed to have yours...

With that post, you've clearly indicated that you know little of either the visual or musical arts.

Don't get defensive... I remember that you work involves illustration. But does that mean folks who don't have a degree in the arts aren't allowed an opinion? BTW, I agreed the painting was not a good representation of the gorgeous man Michael really was.

How would you know what my taste is in the visual or musical arts?
If your reply has something to do with me liking MJ's music, do you think he's the only artist's music I enjoy?

For people like him, everything related to MJ is bad and wrong- his music, dance, body, hair, eyes, cheaks, lips, clothes, home,cars, money, kids, family, frinds, fans etc . EBVERYTHING! LOL!

Stop making excuses. Jacko was an idiot. His race has nothing to do
with him being attacked.
So you admit he was attacked.

Jacko was attacked relentlessly by the media while still alive.

It still has nothing to do with his race.

I'm glad that you agree that MJ (don't know who J**** is) was
attacked relentlessly by the media - and still is.

You know very well who Jacko is.

The media mostly gave him that nickname.

It stuck, so by now you should learn to get used to it.

He continues to get hammered, but not as bad.

He is not here anymore to be made fun of.

Had he kept his nose clean, he would have saved himself a lot of
heartache.

The media did not make him do the things he did.

If he wasn't Michael Jackson, he would have gone to prison.

To Michael's credit though, he did follow Tom Mesereau's advice
after the trial and stayed away from other people's kids.

1. He paid the 20 million.
2. He continued hanging with boys.
3. He had books with naked boys in his collection.

Just three reasons why he was attacked.

It wasn't entirely the media's fault. They wrote or reported what
he had given them.

They went totally overboard with it because Jacko sold Neverland as
an innocent place for children.

The british media invented that name and I'll never get used to it.
What 'things he did' are you talking about?
Why would he have gone to prison?
They didn't write or reported what he had given them, that's exactly what all gullible people like you are made to believe. Wake up. Use your head.
I guess you buy a daily paper and believe every single word they shavel down the throat of the ignorant masses.

Or indeed, if he just kept his nose - just thinking that might have been one less thing for him to be ridiculed over.

Actually, I do not buy tabloids.

It's a pointless arguement now that Michael Jackson is dead, but I
do believe that he was guilty of inappropriate desires for young
boys just by his obvious dealings and special friendships with them
over the years. I didn't exactly need a tabloid to figure that out.

He was an adult. Had he not hung out with them and had pictures
taken with them, playing, holding hands and what not, he wouldn't
have had a problem in that regard.

He just kept getting bad press coverage. It was him that continued
that lifestyle which led to those problems.

Jacko seemed to act as if it was all a joke, lying and laughing.

He obviously lied through out the whole interview on videotape.

Smiling away when asked if he molested those kids.

Claiming he never bleached his skin.

Right.

Jacko The Clown was obviously a very sick and twisted pedophile.

Guilty.
