I would just like to see you fans hold MJ accountable for SOMETHING!!
The fact that he got away with things we wouldn't tolerate from anyone else and you fans continue to think he could do no wrong is why the rest of this world doesn't take you fanatics seriously!
If you hope that people that don't gaze at MJ with adoring eyes will ever want to listen to what you guys have to say, you might try admitting that MJ made some shockingly bad decisions throughout his career!!
The truth is that you fans think you're members of an ultra-exclusive club, don't you? You flat out don't care if millions of non-fans are on the same page with you anyway, right?
That's cool, but let me ask you a serious question....
It's fun to be a member of an exclusive club that doesn't care what others think but how long do you think you'll prevail?
As the generations unfold, I guarantee you that tomorrow's youth will find their own MJs. They aren't going to give a damn about what you old folks think was cool decades ago. This means that one of two things will happen, either your "loyalty" for this over pampered diva will wane or you'll be sitting in a corner somewhere, shaking your fists at people that don't think the way you do.
But one thing is certain; you sure as hell won't be "cool" anymore!
MJ was never an excluding person and neither are his fans.

No one is saying that MJ was perfect. There is no such thing as perfection. He never was a child molestor and his drug problems did not make him a bad person.

You are welcome to be his fan Krackers, but unfortunately, that is a choice that you need to make. No one can make it for you.

Elvis didn't have sold out concerts, in his final years. Priscilla wrote in her book that large seating space was cordoned off at every concert.
As the die hard Elvis fan that you are, you would be aware of that.
I researched and googled . No where ever has it been stated that the king didnt sell out . True because of his deteriorating health and drug use he concerts at the end were not his best . Priscilla never said that in her book . You are incorrect . Sammy shore is a comedian that opened up for elvis , Sinatra , Tom jones , dean Martin . He stated elvis was the most entertaining of them all . That is high praise considering the others . Moonwalker book mj stated
1) elvis was big with blacks and whites
2) it was nice to be have a review " exciting as elvis "

Mj was not fit at the end either . Aig emails released from the Jackson's
" mj is not fit to sing and dance at the same time "

Stop throwing stones bad vibrations . Only obsessive fans like you think mj fought for justice

I'm talking about the future.

MJ rejected worldwide cultural norms and this doesn't faze you fans. You think anything he did was A-OK. How long do you think this defiance of established standards of conduct that MJ brashly tossed aside so he could do whatever he felt like doing will be embraced by millions of people?

For the most part, rejecting social and cultural norms is a young person's game. The older you get, the more you tire of giving the establishment the finger and learn to work within the system. As they say, "the more things change, the more they stay the same." Do you really believe the world will turn their backs on our traditions and call unrelated adults taking other people's children to bed with them a "sweet, loving thing to do" just cuz Mikey sez so?

Being a fan is fun, being in tune with the way the real world operates is better.

Really?

I have Priscilla's book and no where in it does she say that.

With 600 active fan clubs, Elvis sold out concerts even in 1977.

The only seating that was ever cordoned off was in Pontiac, MI 1975.

It was one of Elvis's biggest single concerts he performed.

The seats were poor viewing seats so they were cordoned off.

Elvis cared enough to not sell nosebleed or backstage seats.

Still, the concert packed in 60,500 Elvis fans for New Year's Eve.

Of course, MJ floons like yourself feel the need to twist things.

Elvis never had a problem selling out concerts. He was Elvis.

At the same time, between 1970-1980 he racked up 37 gold/platinums.

You are bitter but it has nothing to do with Elvis, does it?

That's because she never said that.

Priscilla know that Elvis sold out concerts in the seventies.

Elvis was the #1 concert attraction, beating out everybody else.

Thank you for confirming that . It didnt make sense . Bad vibrations is clearly jealous of elvis sucess . With respect to mj fans , elvis achieved more with a shorter career . A poor kid from the ghetto selling more records than anyone ever on this planet is epitome of the American dream . He truly was a king

I wouldn't know why because Elvis was before Michael Jackson.

She is just bitter because Jacko destroyed his tiny legacy.

That is not my problem.

Telling tales and lies are what floons do for their tarnished idol.

Everything Elvis did is documented.

You could ask me the concert attendance on a certain Elvis concert.

I'd know it because it is in a book called "The Concert Years"

Floons are clueless. Their lies fail every time.

Its amazing how big demand is for everything concerning Elvis. I know there are books like Elvis Day by Day and series of Books called the Elvis Chronicles with each book documenting a few years. Elvis news.com is a good source of Information of whats going on in Elvis world today. Elvis rythymn guitarist John Wilkerson just died -also they reported that Red West was in the hospitol.

I read Priscilla's book, too, and nowhere did she say anything Goofvibrations claims. Then again, she tends to say things that are not factual.

Besides Octo ,me and alot of other fans on here were alive in 70's haha! 1976 year before his death was Elvis busiest concert year . He did more shows that year than any other year. I think it should of been a year that he took off and regrouped and got healthy. So anyway unlike Goodvibrations we were also alive to witness MJ at his best and then watch him fall all apart and turn into wacko. It was very strange to witness in real time- what were the tabloids suppose to do ? ignore his strange transformation and weird behavior ?

Stop lying.

Elvis was a pedophile, he had a penchant for young girls and the magic age for him was 14. He called them cherries.

Among the first was Jackie Rowland, Frances Forbes 14, said, Elvis didn't pay attention to me till I hit 14. Frances was invited to private pyjama parties in Presley's bedroom. During 1960, he dated Sandy Ferra, the 14-year-old daughter of a nightclub owner in Los Angeles. n 1974, just two years after their divorce, he began seeing 14-year-old Reeca Smith, a friend of his stepbrother Ricky Stanley.

Let me get this strait , you love to reply that any negative about mj from a book is here say . Yet we are supposed to Beleive a book about elvis based on here say ??? I skimmed that book , none of those people mentioned even stated a sexual relationship . So you are misquoting your own source . 2) Linda Thompson states she lived in Graceland for 2 years ( every night )3) ginger Alden his fiancée in 77 states she was always around elvis . 3) Priscilla never stated intimacy until marriage 4) the press knew about Priscilla when she escorted elvis leaving Germany . The press directly asked elvis about her and made no big deal 5) no parent or girl ever ( even now ) stated anything improper if u choose to Believe it

You can't try the king and go back in the past just bc mj was accused of it , alarming evidence was found , and chandler accurately described his junk

Sour grapes bad vibration !
Get a life ( it's even embarrassing on your profile )

Michael Jackson liked 12 year old boys ! photo's showing him with young boys out number any showing him with women. Elvis loved women -he might of messed around some with under age girls but of the thousands of women he fooled around with only a few were underage. Elvis was dating Linda Thompson and Sheila Ryan in 1974 -two gorgeous women who were in their 20's

Goodvibrations is digging for dirt on Elvis but Rock stars have always flirted with danger when it came to teenage girl groupies. Michael Jackson shocked public because he desired 12 year old boys.MJ fans liked to think he was innocent but I think he was guilty .

Sandy Ferra was Wink Martindale's wife and obviously older than 14.

She was an Elvis fan that once wrote a fan strapbook on Elvis.

No evidence that Elvis slept with Wink's girlfriend/wife.

I've read that Elvis once slept with Rick Stanley's girlfriend.

She was 18 or 19 at the time, goofy.

About the others...never heard of them.

Again, keep lying and twisting things around. Big fail.

Jacko the clown was a pedophile and it will never go away.

Too bad, isn't it?

You are so fortunate to have seen Elvis in concert.

I was not quite old enough and missed out.

But some of my Elvis fan friends did get to see Elvis.

They recall it as being awesome.

That is how stupid she is.

Over 35 years in the ground and not one credible accusation on EP.

It is obvious Elvis kept his nose clean.

Where are the women that claimed that they were molested by Elvis?

They do not exist outside of Goodvibration's imagination.

Yet, Jacko paid Jordan Chandler a 20 million dollar settlement.

The clown was hanging out with boys for countless years.

Zero.

The floons obsession with Elvis is quite amusing.

His life has been picked through with a fine tooth comb since 1977.

And all the man did was work non stop until his early demise.

Wacko however...
