    I am a fan of Michael but I will have to say when we SHY away from 'contraversal' conversations and only speak about it when horrible things happen.. Like the Dan Reed Doc... It only sets us back to share what we think on a more legit level..

    I am suprised the stuff that people have shared (opinion wise) about Michael since the doc was announced and released! we should not be suprised to see these type of questions/comments.

    We need to learn to be more open!
    **He lives forever within us**

Michaels amazing vocal performance does lift it a bit beyond that but I still don't massively care for it, the main reason I listen to it is for the ad libs at the end which are killer.

    I'm probably going to get flak for saying this. But, I would not end a friendship with someone solely because they believe all the stuff in Leaving Neverland or that they think Michael Jackson was guilty. I would not end a friendship on that basis alone, but however I WILL end it when I see them either attacking other people or attacking me for disagreeing with them.

    I don't feel it's my duty to explain and defend the actions of someone that I've never met or spoken to (I've made that mistake in the past). Michael is my favourite artist, but his personal life has nothing to do with me.

    I wish he moved out of America like Tina Turner and never came back.
    As an American I can say our country has done such a disgraceful, despicable, pathetic, and down right horrible job towards him and his family.
    We did not deserve for him to be from our country with the way they’ve treated him.
    I’m watching clips from the 2005 trial from the media’s perspective and I am just disgusted at how they treated him.
    I understand having an open mind of possible guilt, but they never gave him a chance or even thought to see the other side.
    Their reporting is why the ones who feel he is guilty before researching refuse to see 2005 case.

    I wish he worked more with Randy on music.
    Triumph and Destiny has some of his best writing to me.
    I’m still holding out for the Triumph tour

    I’ve never liked that song and it had nothing to do with R.Kelly.

    1. I believe there were points where MJ was rude/obnoxious towards his peers, so it was rather hypocritical for him to say "great artists don't do that" (regarding Eminem). Sure, he meant to keep these entitled opinions to himself or people he trusted but it is inevitable someone would spill the beans. The following are circumstantial tabloid stories, but don't seem far-fetched in my mind. For example how will.i.am said he felt insulted by Prince playing the guitar in his face or the story that he basically trashed on Purple Rain. Another is Paul Anka claiming he would trash Donny Osmond behind his back, even though Donny has spoke of him so well on many occasions. I know Anka got a lot of flak for claiming that MJ "stole" his I Never Heard/This Is It tapes (MJ just re-recorded them), but it still seems like a poor move on MJ's part. If Anka wanted to scrap the project, MJ shouldn't have secretly recorded the song against his wishes.

    2. Jarvis Cocker - I don't agree with his actions but I can see why people hated the Earth Song performance.

    3. A lot of fans hate Barbara Walters for being seemingly condescending toward MJ during her interview, but I found her questions realistic and reasonably. MJ just played the victim card too much.

    4. Billie Jean MSG First night was far more innovative than the second one, which was comparably lazy/weak as Johannesburg.

    5. Whatzupwitu has among the best ad-libs ever.

    ^^^
    MJ's vocals on "Whatzupwitu" is everything!

    I'm a big fan of Michael but I have to say that I do feel upset at times that he made so many poor decisions and now his fans and family are left constantly having to defend him.

    I wish he had never had these sleepovers with kids or had such a fascination with children and recreating his chidhood.

    He had tons of nieces and nephews. There was no need to constantly befriend outside children and their families.

    I mean, I understand why in some ways he did the things he did because children didn't care that he was famous and they didn't use him like most adults. They just liked him for him.

    I just wish he had gotten help. I wish he had sought therapy.
