The jury deliberated about 32 hours throughout the course of seven days before reaching its decision.

Go to Guiness records or that kind of source. Michael is the one entertainer who donated the greatest amount of money to charity in his career to this date.
A third of profits from MJ's music, film etc. still go to charity according to his will.
Never read tabloids.So you may be speaking for yourself, since you can only believe that others do. Who knows?
J.C****
Prove it. Back-up what you say. His Will may have been written prior to his foundation going under. What are the amounts he gave vs other celebrities? Some celebrities quietly set up various foundations outside of the spotlight. The only Guinness record he holds is the most charities (39). Guinness never quoted the most money given.

He not only did not break down any racial barriers, he blurred racial and gender barriers by starting out as a young black man and ending up as an old white woman.

Judging from what I've seen in the Guinness site, MJ only holds four records and the charity record isn't even included anymore, I don't think. Besides from the Thriller record, the highest annual earnings for a pop star in one year ($125 mill in 1989), most hit UK singles in one year and the largest poster (or something), there's no other MJ record. I'll google to see if he still holds the charity record.

He was still a pedophile. You can foam at the mouth all you want, but the legal documents, at the Santa Barbara County website, prove it. What a tragedy he got away with child molestation.

Thanks. It never did say how much he gave to each charity. All I know is that HTW foundation went belly up with Michael Jackson as the sole trustee.

Not only the HTW foundation but also another one he started with a rabbi titled Heal the Kids (smh). From those who were close to MJ, he would start something but wouldn't continue work on it and if he didn't feel like working on it he would abandon the project.

I appreciate your fact finding. I always have question marks in my head, about his so-called generosity, given his love of PR.

Oh believe me, the generosity was for show most of the time. Remember when right after MJ and Lisa Marie married, MJ had her going to hospitals of sick children with him to give off the humanitarian vibe in spite of the abuse allegations?

Sometimes, MJ wouldn't go to awards shows unless someone would give him an award for humanitarian purposes (that can only explain why he was at the American Music Awards and Soul Train). I'm sure a part of him was partially generous but not as much as people would like you to think. So 85% of that was for show.

It was clear about MJ's PR moves during his concerts. He used children as a reason to go on tours he didn't wanna originally do (Bad, Dangerous, HIStory, This Is It, etc.) It was a pattern.

I respect people who quietly give to charities.

I didn't realize he would not go to awards shows, unless he was going to receive an award for humanitarian purposes.

Yeah. MJ went to the Jackson Family Honors for that purpose. I think MJ had requested to be given awards just so he can show up and not necessarily have to do anything else besides that. So it wasn't just for humanitarian purposes. Everything was a PR stunt with him in regards to the awards he received. MJ refused to perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice after he was inducted. I don't know the reasons to why in 1997 (besides bad blood between the brothers) but in 2001 he injured himself and from the looks of his face he looked "doped up".

Posting a news article is hardly "foaming at the mouth". It's you that seems to be having a problem. So, are you saying that all those jurors who found MJ NOT GULITY on ALL COUNTS are stupid--lying--manipulated- received the wrong information...bought off OR WHAT? Care to speculate on how/why all the jurors (It was a unanimous decision) found MJ NOT GULITY? I went to the Santa Barbara County web site. I didn't see anything concerning MJ. Post a link! Fact is... MJ was found NOT GUILTY ON ALL COUNTS by a jury of his peers.

Have a nice day..

That was Britney Spears that gave him some award/b-day cake lol and yeah Michael's drugged up butt came onstage thinking he was accepting a Nobel Peace Prize or something lol others basically mocked him afterwards.'N Sync did perform with MJ at the MTV Video Music Awards like a year before. In both instances, MJ was high as a kite. He looked surely out of it while performing with 'N Sync.
