Big beautiful dark eyes that told a story and gleamed like liquid honey in the sunlight
Strong, structured jawline, perfectly chiseled cheekbones, full lips with a smile lovely as the moonlight.
Lean muscular body, narrow hips, strong back, broad shoulders, a dancer’s body.
Long elegant hands that rival works of art, tender and strong. And depending on the time period, a body covered in either ebony, caramel or the perfect flush of smooth alabaster skin.
A beautiful man with a heart to match. Long flowing ebony curls, legs for days, and a voice that sounds like rainfall.
Yes, all this with a golden heart wrapped in the perfect packaging. That’s how I see MJ.
Okay so I finally got to sit down and watch this wonderful documentary after waiting for months to watch it (I had to find my DVD player and then fix it). Then I kept fretting because I didn’t know how the film would make me feel. I knew that it was about the media having the cameras turned on them, and their mocking/harassing fans during the trial, however I didn’t feel like I was emotionally ready to experience that. After deciding to stop this procrastination, I can say that I am glad I did. After the movie ended I sat there in shock staring at the black screen as it flashed ‘THE END’. I didn’t want it to end. This film takes you inside the perspective of the fans waiting outside the court house everyday during the 2005 trial. I was shocked at unprofessional news reports and revolted that they made the life of one man into a lighthearted joke and that they joked about pedophilia in the first place. Secondly, I saw how some members of the media mocked and harassed Michaels fans in an effort to make them appear delusional in supporting an innocent man. I was floored by the amount of blatant disrespect and contempt these so called ‘journalists’ had for the fans.
The film was touching, as it showed the amount of devotion shared between Michael and his admirers, the heartfelt efforts of support to help keep him going and motivated everyday. I came to a realization that the fans struggled as well, with bullying, racism, and concern for Michael’s well being. They struggled as a family. Furthermore it took me back to when I was a casual observer of the trial as a child, only twelve years old and rooting for Michael Jackson to be found not guilty. I had no idea in 2005 just how biased the media was towards Michael and just how severe this whole situation was. I can only describe how I feel now, present day, as an aching sadness that I had not been there to cheer for Michael and give him support directly in front of the courthouse and at Neverland. I’ve always had fire in me to see justice done, but the flames are now spitting higher because of this film. It sparked a change inside that I cannot explain. I want to make sure everyone knows about this film and about the truth behind these trials because Michael deserves that. He deserves truth because he was about truth. I am so angered that he had to go through anything like this in the first place, angered that the media contributed to his passing in a major way, breaking his heart and spirit. I’ve said it before on Twitter: why has this film, which has been released in 2010, not received national acknowledgement, and awards of recognition? This film is a must see for all fans of the King of Pop.

WHERE TO BUY:
#mjfam please question what is going on. I know you wanna hear MJ and I’m not judging you for getting the xscape album. But learn about MJ and Sony. Learn about the wrongdoings of Michael Jackson’s estate executors. Be aware of what MJ was trying to tell us all along. People are trying to cover the truth about what happened to mj but we must be informed as a fan base. The hash tag #thebestyouveneverheard cannot be any more false. The majority of tracks on XSCAPE were leaked and heard years ago when mj was alive and he was outraged. I don’t know why SONY is trying to pull that #bestyouveneverheard hashtag off because fans have already heard those songs on xscape album. SONY pulls the leaked tracks off the Internet knowing fans have heard those versions and puts them on this album. Then you have fans who are saying mj only had a problem with Tommy Mattola but it just wasn’t mattola he had a problem with SONY too. Michael was treated so badly by the companies that promoted him, namely SONY and AEG. Read Leonard Rowe’s book. He was treated like a machine and cash cow. Record companies need to realize that it’s the ARTIST who makes the company, not the other way around. Michael was manhandled and treated with contempt at the mercy of AEG. Randy Phillips slapped & screamed at him and forced him to attend rehearsals even though the contract did not obligate MJ to rehearse. They called him “freak” and …”creepy” behind his back, tied him up financially just like SONY did to mj. They didn’t care about his health first, only money. I’m not trying to dictate what anyone should or should not buy, I only ask that mj fans look at the truth like they would if they were researching the truth behind media conspiracy or the truth behind false allegations. I humbly ask that you share this with as many fans as you can.
Here’s a long post I put on an CNN article regarding this new Album of his. The response had nothing to do with the album because a lot of ignorant people have commented, saying some pretty sick things. So here is my response:
Okay, for all the ignorant people posting disgusting things in the comments section of this article, I have something to say to you and all others like you. The truest statement of all is: if you don’t know something about a subject, don’t pretend to. For instance: if you know nothing about Michael Jackson’s court cases or his resulting vindication in the 2005 trial, or his character, don’t come on here with your filthy descriptions, fantasies, and jokes about pedophilia. You all have a hate obsession with someone you know nothing about. I am starting to think you all are really the delusional fanatic ones, who may even be secret admirers. If you don’t like MJ, what I don’t understand is why do you feel the need to talk about someone you don’t like? Save yourself the time and embarrassment of coming on to harass mj fans with random, delusional, and inaccurate comments please. The man was a victim of crime. Point blank. Everyone seems to forget he was proven not guilty of 14 counts. 14. Not 1, 5, but all 14. The jury were set to convict if the proper evidence were produced, however the prosecution witnesses were not credible, and had a history of asking money from celebrities (Chris Tucker, George Lopez, Jay Leno for example), fraud, etc. The FBI investigated Mr. Jackson from 1993 to 2005, aided the Santana Barbara DA Tom Sneddon in their investigation against MJ, and wrongfully assumed him guilty. Not to mention Sneddon tried to make the things they found in Never land out to be sinister, when in actuality they were not. The jury looked at the evidence siezed, and saw nothing wrong. There is proof that Evan Chandler was trying to extort money from Michael Jackson, there is proof that the settlement in 1993 was for negligence ONLY and not for anything criminal because insurance companies cannot settle with anyone over a supposed committed crime (that is illegal). There is a document stating that whether or not Michael Jackson agreed to settle with Jordans family, he would not have had control over the settlement anyway because the obligation to pay was on his insurance company. The media is also to blame and is an example of how things can be taken too far. The media is responsible for some people being confused or unsure about his innocence because there were over 4,000 media outlets for the 2005 trial, and not ONE of them sought to tell developments from both sides in the courtroom. They all only reported on the prosecution, incredibly biased in order to convict Jackson in the court of public opinion. Theie attitude was “hes weird, not normal, so he must be guilty”, their attitude was “it doesnt matter that he was aquitted, he got away with it.” Sneddon should have been fined or had some disciplinary action against him for wasting taxpayers dollars and building cases out of thin air in order to have one of the greatest convictions that could possibly go on his resume, or what he would be known for ( the DA that nabbed Jackson). Michael Jackson repeatedly said “no its not sexual…you’re making it sexual.” The media always wanted to tie Michael’s innocent relationship with children to the word “sex”, and that’s what I find sickening. Michael said he was denied love from his father as a child, and that’s why he would never deny a child love. There was never a sinister motive for building Neverland, it was first off for his enjoyment because he did not get to have the normal pleasures of childhood that we all take for granted. He had to work, work, work with little time for play. Secondly he said that to enjoy his place by himself, to roll around in his wealth would be selfish, he was a very giving person. He is in Guiness Book of Records for most charities supported by a pop star (39 charities), and donated over 300 million plus during his lifetime. And what’s more is he did not publicize giving to charity, he did from the heart. He was able to help and even heal children with the simple principle of love. Let’s all not be stuck in 2005 because the Internet is not here for us to remain blissfully ignorant of the truth. Do your research and stop slandering an innocent man. The FBI files are public information. The court transcripts are public info. The truth is out but people are getting lazy. The media has the power to make anyone look guilty. Oh, and a quick lesson about the characteristics of pedophlies: 1) they are not capable of feeling genuine love towards children, they see them as just objects for their satisfaction. 2) they are known to appear disinterested, or not genuine around children, 3) they CANNOT stop their behavior, can have many victims or just 1 or two, but assault them multiple times 4) they will have a stash of child por**graphy hidden somewhere, they cannot resist. People will try to push these characteristics onto Michael Jackson because of his love for children, but that is the most ridiculous thing to do because, for one, it is shown that MJ had a genuine love for all people, whatever age, from all walks in life. Children are very perceptive. They know when someone is making them uncomfortable. Now, not one child has come forward saying that he made them feel uncomfortable, except the 2 families proven to be all about the money, proven to be liars, etc. Every other child that Sneddon interviewed in regards to their relationship to MJ adamantly denied any impropriety or uncomfortable situations. Now on to another characteristic: not being able to stop the behavior, and having a stash of child po**. People will lie and say that MJ had child po** in his house when that was not true. Think logically; if it were true, would it not have been introduced to the jury? Wouldn’t MJ have been arrested and charged formally as a pedo**ile? You cannot get out of that one of they find something like that in your house. Furthermore, mj had “access” to thousands of children he helped. If the habits of a child predator cannot be helped, he would have slipped up somewhere, made someone uncomfortable. Not one (honest) child or family that he helped has said anything abnormal went on. None of the traits of a pedo**ile apply to MJ because he simply was not one. This disgusting name was pushed into him just like the disrespectful name “Wacko Jacko”.
UPDATE 04/09/2014: 6 days ago my comment was deleted, and I was infuriated. The moderator has a habit of deleting my comments for no reason if it has anything to do with defending MJ with the truth. This is nothing new and has been going on for 8 months now and I have constantly contacted the moderators, who all have given me run around answers. Clearly none of my posts violated any of CNN’s Terms of Service. Either I will just stop going to comment on CNN or pursue this until it stops.
I don’t think it’s right to label people who want to buy the xscape album as “fake fans” mjfam is waaay too judgememtal. The only “fake fans” in mjfam are the ones being paid to promote the xscape album, and they know who they are. And other fake fans in mjfam are trolls who pretend to love Michael Jackson but spread false facts about him and they know who THEY are. Otherwise, you can’t really judge other people in the mjfam unless you know them. Every one has their reasons and no one can dictate how someone feels about Michael unless they express it clearly themselves. It’s okay to educate other fans about
wrongdoings of the estate/SONY, just don’t become a bully about it.
Have you even listened to his words?
“No, It’s not sexual…you’re making it sexual”
Have you really listened to his interviews or looked at the fact that he was searching for real true love with a WOMAN? Have you looked at his childhood? Where his own father denied him love, the one true thing he probably craved all his life. He even said that since his dad denied him love he will never deny a child love. He never meant that in a sexual way.
“When I was a kid, I was denied not only a childhood, but I was denied love. When I reached out to hug my father, he didn’t hug me back. When I was scared on an airplane, he didn’t put his arm around me and say, ´Michael, don’t worry. It’s going to be OK.´ When I was scared to go on stage, he said, ´get your ass on that stage.´ … I will never deny a child love. If it means that I have to be crucified or put in jail for it, then that’s just what they’re going to have to do.”
“Children – this is my opinion – represent the purest, the quintessence of honesty, of love, of God. To me they are the God´s way of saying there is hope, there is such a thing as humanity. Be like children, be humble like them, be sweet, be innocent. It shows in the eyes, I always see it in the eyes. When you look in a child´s eyes you see just a pure innocence and it reminds me to be humble, to be sweet and to be really good.”
He knew all about sex, as he was a mature adult, and he also expressed awareness of abuse of children, sexually, emotionally, mentally, and physically. Listen to the song Do You Know Where Your Children Are. He knew all about how children were being exploited all over the world. So the theory that he could have been in love with children romantically is out of the question, I don’t meant to sound rude but even though it is a legitimate question to ask it doesn’t apply to Michael. You have to look at his character, how he was raised and also evidence, as that that is most important. The reason why he surrounded himself by children is because he believed in their pureness, he empathized with their struggles of wanting to be heard and cared for, and he wanted to help in any way possible. I was not 100% sure of Michael’s innocence at one time in my life, but that is only because I did not know many facts. Now that I have done research I can say I am 10000% percent sure that this man was a victim of the one of the highest scales of bullying and extortion ever because there are people STILL making money off of his name.
I don’t understand. Most people will say he is a pedophile based on how he looked, most will say “because he was always around children”, or because he “slept” with children, implying it in a sexual way when that was never the case. MJ repeatedly said he didn’t think it was wrong, he didn’t think it was inappropriate because that was how he was raised. He expressed that he didn’t get to have sleepovers and all the normal experiences of childhood, so he was making up for it in adulthood. The only thing on his mind when the children were in his room was going to sleep. And then you have to realize: firstly, Michael didn’t invite people into his room. They asked to be in there. He even had grown people staying and sleeping in his room. Second: his room was two stories. it had an upstairs and a downstairs. it’s in court transcripts. So there was extra space in his room, and he would take the floor and let the children have the bed. The children asked permission and Michael would only let them come in there if their parents are alright with it. It may have not been normal for an adult to sleep in the same room as children, but nothing went on but sleep. If Michael was a female (let’s call him Michelle lol) I wonder if anyone would have a problem with that (random thought)) but anyway, let’s move on.
1993: Michael was accused by Evan Chandler, who had become jealous of Michael’s relationship with his son and daughter and his wife, June. To sum this case up, Evan threatened to accuse MJ of molestation if he didn’t get what he wanted: money to produce a movie. When Michael refused to pay, Evan went public with the allegations. they chose a civil case instead of a criminal one first. Michael planned to fight the case in court all the way to the end, but he was very badly advised by his lawyers to pay a settlement. This was not a wise decision on Michaels part but also consider his insurance company forced him to pay the settlement. More information about that here: http://vindicatemj.wordpress.com/2009/11/21/the-questions-asked-about-the1993-settlement/
http://www.sbscpublicaccess.org/docs/ctdocs/032205mjmemospprtobj.pdf <–THAT is the actual court document
Consider this also: if someone had molested your child would you seek money first? or would you want that person prosecuted put in prison and charged formally as a child molester? Why didn’t the Chandlers first off go to the police? More information about the 1993 case can also be seen in the books by Geraldine Hughes (Redemption) and the GQ Article “Was Michael Jackson Framed?” by Mary Fischer And if you want to hear a recording of Evan Chandler plotting to extort money from Michael, go here: http://musicalloafers.tumblr.com/post/76893761213/mj4lyfe-filmcityworld-93-proof-michael
Next, let’s talk about the 2005 trial, which was a result from the Martin Bashir interview that aired in 2003. Basically, Bashir tricked Michael into thinking he would be fair and honest in his portrayal of Michael’s life and the truth, when in actuality he lied about working with Princess Diana (who Jackson admired), and he didn’t portray him fairly at all. Bashir sought to portray Michael as a self mutilated freak who could possibly be a child molester. He completely twisted the program to his own agenda and edited out parts that would not have made MJ look guilty.
Garvin Arvizo comes into play when his mom Janet Arviso realizes that her son is in the Bashir documentary without her permission. at first she wants to sue Bashir for having her son in the program, but nothing comes of it. Garvin first met Michael through a request to see him before he died. He was diagnosed with cancer and wanted to visit Neverland. To sum this all up, Janet Arviso and her family started to take advantage of Michaels kindness just like the Chandlers and they started acting like they owned neverland, trashing everything, Janet spent thousands of Michael’s money on spas, facial treatments, jewelry, etc. Not to mention Chris Tucker warned Michael about the Arvisos when they first met, that their was something off about them. When Michael started to push them away, that’s when the allegations came out. The Arvisos sought money before a criminal case, They went to the SAME lawyer the Chandlers went to for the civil case, but this time it went to court. Cops raided Michael’s ranch, and NOTHING was found (proof here:) Do you seriously think that if Michael had ANY indication of child porn, he would have been found not guilty? Everyone was so eager for him to be guilty, yet nothing was discovered but a stash of adult pornography and art books. The art books had some photos of nude children in their, but their was nothing to indicate that the books were sexual. The prosecution tried to use these art books as evidence, but that was impossible because some were sent from fans and secondly, are books are just that. Art. There were no children in provocative poses, nothing disgusting like that. Michael had thousands of things sent to him and he kept every single thing that fans sent and cherished it. Maybe he didn’t get a chance to look at all of it, but compare all the adult heterosexual porn to a couple art books where you are not sure if they even belonged to him and that is a shaky foundation for a prosecution to base the accusations off of. They even implied that he used the hetero sexual porn to groom children, when it is documented that he never showed anyone the stuff. Even his friends didn’t know Michael was into that and he kept it locked away for a reason. Another point: here is a great post on a very common question: did Michael only hang out with boys? here: http://musicalloafers.tumblr.com/post/77115772910/why-was-michael-only-friends-with-a-few-boys-like-he

I am tired of all these ignorant people saying Michael was a pedophile based off of false claims and tabloid magazine reports. Tabloids aren’t even a reliable source. Don’t try to disprove a Michael Jackson fan by stating we will defend him because of his celebrity. Don’t try and disprove us by saying that we worship him because that is NOT the case. I only worship one god, but I am sensible enough to see the logic in everything and use it as well. So are Michael’s fans, and even non fans! He was investigated for 20 years by the FBI and they found nothing but false claims! You cannot pay off the FBI! Michael could not pay off the DA Tom Sneddon because they strongly disliked him in the first place! Do you really think they would do him any favors when they were so blood hungry and eager for their reputations to soar? Give me a break please.The FBI files are NOT what the tabloids like the Daily Mirror and the Sun, etc. have been reporting. They are fabricated. The real ones are located here: http://vault.fbi.gov/search?SearchableText=Michael+Jackson Really all it takes is a little knowledge, common sense and the use of logic, but people are too blind by prejudice and an unwillingness to find out things for themselves. They do not want to accept the truth when it stares them in the face. Some are jealous. Fans have actual COURT DOCUMENTS, and even if they are on a blog, no major news station has taken the time to broadcast Michael Jackson’s innocence around the world because the truth DOESN’T SELL. WE have taken the time to do the research and haters have not.
And then you have the disgusting haters who say they wish children had been molested by Michael, they make jokes about child abuse, which isn’t even funny. If you have the nerve to even wish that on someones child, maybe you are the monster. Maybe something isn’t right with you. Michael had an innocent love for children, not the obsessive kind that real pedophiles have. Real pedophiles see children as objects and show no genuine affection for them. Michael was more than genuine to everyone. Real pedophiles have up to hundreds of victims in there lifetime because they can’t stop, not 2 or 3 who have a history of making up false allegations for money. Michael wanted to help the children of the world after seeing the poverty stricken ones in Africa in his youth and he vowed he would help to make things right and he did that. That’s all I will say on the matter because it is so easy to do research, it was merely a click and type to find the FBI files that the media claimed that he abused 24 boys (FALSE). The media has the power to make anyone look like a monster, look bizarre, etc. They know people won’t take time out of there day to know more about a story and they take advantage of that. That’s why it’s good to not believe everything you hear and think critically. If you live your life believing everything that is not much of a life don’t you think?
