Leaving Neverland

Quote:
It only takes about two minutes into the four-hour documentary Leaving Neverland to realise that Michael Jackson’s legacy is never going to be the same again. After a brief introduction, praising him for his indisputable talent, one of his accusers looks into the camera and lists the ways in which the singer helped him. He then states: “And he sexually abused me for seven years.”

I would not put it past many of the parents pushing their kids on to Micheal Jackson, knowing (or even not knowing) the way he was, so they could hopefully get large sums of money from him at a later date, via presents, or blackmail, or taking him to court or getting payments to stay out of court.

if they were caring parents they would not have let their kids out of their sight in this modern world, no matter who it was.

Funny that the 2 guys featured in the film, who give no evidence for their stories whatsoever, already testified in the past, under oath, that nothing happened. Guess the prospect of interview cash was too good to pass up.

I think it's easy for people who loved MJ to dismiss allegations, and it's easy for people who already thought he would do such a thing to believe anyone who says he did such a thing.

According to this article, both the men in the documentary state they have not received any money for the interview:

True, as a fan it is easy, i would rather remember his brilliant music through the decades, than what he got up to in his personal life. Most of these people just want cash, as MJ was loaded.

Don't get me wrong, i can see the other side of it as well, but in the long run the music is what will be remembered.

Unless media decides to remove all trace of it from broadcasts and the internet. When did you last hear a Gary Glitter song anywhere?

Seen part 1, that was quite depressing.

Dunno about innocent or guilty, haven't seen the documentary. But I did the whole art is bigger than the artist thing when that Jordy Chandler case, and the early 2000s court case happened.

But this time for me, the taint is sticking. Stuck a mix tape on a day or so ago, and it had some early Jackson stuff on it, Off the Wall stuff and Jackson Five stuff, back when he was 'normal', and I just had to leave the room or fast forward. I couldn't listen to it.

It's really difficult, having watched it.

I honestly don't know how, other than just being in total denial, you could watch Leaving Neverland and come away thinking they are lying and Michael Jackson was not abusing children.

I haven't watched it, don't think I will, but I saw a link to this article:

https://talunzeitoun.com/2019/01/30/michael-jackson-and-me/

Quote:
I was a boy in Michael Jackson’s life, and nothing of what he’s being accused of in this documentary happened
a reply to the person who posted it was interesting:

Quote:
And John Wayne Gacey has neighbors he didn’t kill that doesn’t mean anything


it' a bit like the recent Louis Theroux - only  hearing 1 side of the story at a time, it's hard to know how much is truth, how much is half truth, how much mis remembering, and how much is lies :(
