I see you think that is funny..what you do not see is that MJ was so lonely that is how he felt and thought...not funny at all...very sad how he felt...

Some people turn to books, art, or music when they're lonely. Other people become very depressed when they're. Other people spend time in bars, cafes, etc., when they are lonely. Other people seek therapy to address what has caused them feel lonely.

And you're telling me Michael had 24 manequins in his hotel room because he was lonely? What normal, fully grown man has two dozen manequins in his hotel room? And f'loons wonder why he was referred to as Wacko Jacko?

yes Len... what I am tellin you is the truth..he said it made him feel as if people were around...that is how lonely and isolated he felt. Why do you feel the need to laugh and make fun of a such a sad situation..MJ could not go out to feel better...do you not understand how different his life was because of bein famous?

You're right. It's a sad situation a grown man named Michael was so mentally unhinged, he needed manequins when he could have gone to therapy. Besides, there were years betweeh the Jacksons' last big hit and "Off the Wall" when he wasn't so famous he couldn't go into the world and meet people. Sorry, Jermaine, but I'm not going to pretend it's normal for a man to keep two dozen manequins in his hotel room.

I never said it was normal...but either was his life..Michael was very introverted and shy..he found it hard to talk to new people...you have no idea how or why he could not relate to people...

If you people on this forum really think Michael was mentally sick and needed to be in a mental hospital then why do you find it funny and laugh at him and about him? What does that say about you?

Anyway talking about MJ isn't really important.Talking about what to do about gun violence, U.S. debt. and immigration reform is! don't take status quo for granted -The times they are changing . Its the most interesting time in the history of the world . America is becoming the most divided its been since the late 1960's and early 70's.

Its because your defending his insanity! He didn't need people to go along with what ever he did and say it was ok. You need to get away from defending him and just enjoy how he made you feel with his music and dance. Why try to justify the crazyness?

Well I sure cared about watching that kid that was about my age sing and dance with his brothers on tv . I also was awed by that young man on Motown special and MTV when I was a young man. This middle age man now though thinks its sad that such a talent got lost along the way .Life is what you make it so if you want to spend your life defending his go ahead.
