Tommy Mottola details rise to the top

Feb 10, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Toledo Blade

Behind Mariah, Michael, and the constellation of stars at arguably the most successful record label in history stood a man who didn't often talk to the media or explain his motivations.

I love this pairing of sentences, in the review.

"As for Jackson’s legal troubles, Mottola said the label played the role of supporter without forming an opinion about the charges.

"'It wasn’t our position to pass judgment,' he said.'It was really our position to support Michael and that’s what we did. We were there and we supported Michael to the best of our ability.'"

He sounds a bit noncommittal about what he thought of Michael's child obsession. Do you think f'loons will try to bury this book?

You obviously haven't heard a "not-guilty" verdict doesn't mean "innocent."

P.S. Michael was a pedophile.

That's only your word, which means absolutely nothing. All so pointless.

It's the legal documents that reveal Michael was a pedophile, who got away with it. All other arguments and attempts at intimidation, on your side, are pointless.

The legal documents prove Michael was a pedophile who got away with it. No f'loon has been able to explain away their contents. Namely, why would a grown man keep a nude photo of one of the special friends he slept with?

You lose, again, stubborn f'loon.

And you obviously haven't heard,(or just don't want to hear), that being accused doesn't mean "guilty", either.

Now, go pour your sad self a glass of wine and have another long gawk over your il-legal documents. I think they actually turn you on, to be honest.

Mottola kept Mariah on lock down from her partying with friends. He never mentions his pal Morris Levy, a Genovese non made member. Jackson was buried in owed advance money, Tony & Walter were happy to advance....somebody had the gold from Liverpool if he went under.

" there was one single defining moment that ran through me like a bolt of electricity when I was eight years old . That was the first time I heard " don't be cruel " blasting . The beat and the rhythm of that song branded me forever and was everything that motivated and inspired me to become what I became . Elvis Presley , the King .

I'm going to repost the sentence you chose to overlook. "The legal documents prove Michael was a pedophile who got away with it."

If you ever got over your worship of a drug-addicted peophile, you would be embarrassed you refused to see what the legal documents prove. They're not illegal, either. But that was a very interesting way to try to explain away their contents.
