Everyone talking about his legacy, when what they really mean is they hope the money stays rolling in.

Not a fan of his music and certainly not of his aesthetic.  Surely must be some fire given the amount of smoke.

I never paid much attention to Michael Jackson. He was never my taste. And I was not very interested in the whole scandal/accusation thing either. Papparazzi and leeches everywhere plus a fickle public that wants its monsters as bad as its heroes and whose adoration will turn on a dime so it can casually slander someone. Without even doing a web search, I can take it back to Fatty Arbuckle...god the public love their sex scandals..and I know it goes back to ancient Rome and beyond. We also had accusations of communism, being gay and know its all about who is supposedly a pedophile. And the public, a world full of jealous nobodies, always ready to run with accusations so they can pretend they are better than someone else. And they are scarcely even aware of what they are doing, not far from a herd of animals really.

So I was not so interested, but long after it was over and Elizabeth Taylor died, I first learned how close a friend she was to him. And I remembered her being chastised for protecting him. And then I found out his principal accuser was the son of a known con artist. But the public will believe the worst, not because they have solid evidence, but just because they want to tear others down for their own amusement and to get a false sense of mattering.

Another privileged sex pest who got away with it for years.

That kid crying as the police officer asked him what Michael did...you just can’t coach that. If you’re a father you’d know how a boy 12-14 years old cries. It was a police video, not the documentary itself but in the documentary.

I watched the documentary and am quite convinced the man abused children, he was sick and it probably happened to him. He died in his own self created hell and is probably in real hell now. Sad reality that should wake wveryone up. I am no longer a fan of his music....

I never liked him or his image, even before all the stuff from the closet came out

over hyped. But he did have talent, but a few sandwiches short of a picnic

Michael Jackson was victim of medias and greedy former friends.
