    Default If there was evidence that Michael ever harmed a child,would you still be a fan?

    This is purely a discussion, nothing more.


    I've always wondered how I would feel if anything incriminating ever came forward about MJ and as a fan if I would still like his music. I think we can all agree Michaels life wasn't normal and he wasn't a normal person, however, that being said I'm still torn on a couple of things.

    Given the impact he had on pop culture anything damming or incriminating brought forward about him would totally destroy anything good he did. It's an interesting dynamic. I think with all the sycophants in Michaels life and his lack of awareness outside his bubble, he was taken advantage off and people just looked at him as a cash cow. But as a fan I honestly don't know how i would react if anything incriminating was presented about MJ. I think we can all agree his behaviours weren't exactly normal but that's not to say that anyone who behaves different is a criminal. I dunno man, i'd just like to see his name cleared once and for all about all this stuff.

    There's no such thing as normal. BUT if Michael did do anything (which he didn't) he would need to go to jail and get some serious help. love Michael but if he did anything wrong i will call him out for it. he may be one of biggest superstars in the world. but if he did a crime he deserve the time.

    Its weird this thread popped up. I recently found this YT channel of a "former fan" who now believes the lies.

    At first I was confused because of all the pro mj videos in the past. I thought it was an anti mj page. Feel free to give her some facts/report her nonsense videos. Its just sad that even fans can be flipped. To answer your question I would not support MJ at all. No excuses.

    Be wary of people who claim to be “former fans”. In reality, they are haters who were never fans and just pretend that they are now former fans and believe the scam. I have had many debates with these so-called “former fans”. In the end I exposed them as not being fans at all. I would bet anything that this so-called former fans was NEVER a fan. Don’t let people like that trick you into believing their AGENDA.

    This is just the thing. Why wasn't he normal?
    I mean, sure...he had an abnormal talent for music. And he had an incredible sense of empathy. And he didn't get along with most people because he was too honest and good. But, uhm...that actually also describes me very well. Besides the music talent, of course If I had his money, I would act exactly the same.

    He was ahead of its time and destroyed by the media. He wasn't weird. Let's list some things that supposedly make him weird;

    - He secluded himeself on his ranch
    We all do that. We find our safe place which is our home with our family. But most of us try to fit in with the general population. Because we have to. We have to go to our jobs, to the store, to the post office. He didn't. There was no need for him to do that. And even if he did, which he wanted, the media would just swarm him and ruin everything.
    So when you don't get along with most of the people and are disabled on the street by the media...what else do you have left? I would also build myself my own safe world. With arcade machines and animals. I love animals and so did he. I love videogames and so did he.
    I honestly and objectively see nothing weird with his ranch.

    - He looked weird
    Well, uhm...do we really need to go into that? He had a disease. Let's just move on please.

    - He hanged around with children
    You see...I'm more an animal than people guy. If I was in his place, I would surround myself with animals, not humans. But he loved the human race and he loved every single person. But grown ups are idiots who just want to use him for his money. Who do you turn to, then? The children of course!
    Children were his friends because they had fun, not because he was Michael Jackson. I mean...you gotta have SOME human contact, right? I personally like children only to a certain extent. I like to play with them, but that's it. They can quickly get on my nerves. So I wouldn't spend my free time with them. I would go with animals.
    So is it weird for a regular person to hang with kids? Probably, yes. Is it weird for Michael Jackson? I say no.

    - He dressed funny
    He was a star. A king. A self-made royalty. Of course he dressed lavishly. He made sure that every one of his public appearences was in style. And I absolutely LOVE that! He created his own style and set his own trends. Do you really want him to walk around in jeans and a sweater?


    So please...list some more things that make him strange and not normal. I would really like to hear some reasons why people perceive him that way...

    Michael Jackson intentionally wanted to be perceived by many people as a not normal, but instead a weird, strange figure when he started to plant fake, weird stories in the press about himself in the mid/late ‘80s (with the help of Frank Dileo).

    Many of those fake stories appeared also on his ‘Leave Me Alone’ music video in an effort to enforce them even more to people's mind.

    Also, his increasing use of wearing a surgical mask in many public occasions (as a way to establish a new trademark) made many people consider him even more a weird figure.

    But it was not just that peculiar fixation he had with that mask.

    For example, his public appearance in court one time wearing his pyjamas and slippers (2005) raised eyebrows.

    Especially, during his final years, certain things that Michael Jackson did they fueled even more people’s opinion about him being a weird figure.

    Three examples just off the top of my head:

    In 2008 (December), he appeared publicly wearing a Zorro mask.

    In 2008 (July), he appeared publicly wearing pyjamas and moving in a wheelchair.

    In 2007 (December), he appeared publicly with his face covered in sticking plasters.

    Michael Jackson was desperately trying to be in the limelight for the biggest part of his life, not just by means of his art but also through other unconventional ways like all those that I mentioned above.

    It was mainly about him creating mystery and attracting attention.

    So what you're saying is MJ is a classic case of you reap what you sew? If he planted fake stories of himself and then complained about media treatment then that's his fault nobody elses. Of course the media treated him horribly but he wasn't doing himself any favours either.

    I'm sorry, but this is most likely completely wrong.
    Yes, he did tease the media with a couple of fake stories, but that was not because he had a grand scheme behind it. He was just poking fun at them, something he liked to do in general. He was just naive and didn't predict the terrible consequences that would follow.
    Yes, that stuff was in the Leave me Alone video. But I don't think for the reason that you mentioned. It was a culmination of headlines that the media had already been portraying about him. There was no need to do it further, your reasoning is just absurd.

    Surgical mask as a trademark? What? have you ever been to Japan? People wear them everywhere over there. It's something you do to protect yourself from the germs.

    That time in pyamas? Wasn't that the same time he fell under the shower and showed up all confused with a dislocated shoulder? You actually think he wanted to show up in pyamas?

    How do you know the story behind the wheelchair? Did you talk to him?

    Oh wow, he had a Zorro mask. Yeah...that's super weird, mhm

    I mean we are talking about a man who was super sophisticated, was meeting almost every important person on this planet, was trying to keep his art on the highest possible level of quality...you really think he would want to do that?
    He wanted to get away from it all, why would he seek such twisted media attention? It makes no sense. He didn't NEED that kind of attention. It was enough for him to walk down the road and people would be all over him.

    I'm really struggling to makes sense of your way of thinking

    Being around kids is okay. yeah some people may think it's weird but it's not. as long the person is kind and don't want to hurt them. a lot of psychologists claimed michael behavior was normal. i like kids too and my psychologist says it's fine. while me and Michael are different in some ways this topic maybe kind of different for both of us.

    I like i said in a thread earlier this year. Michael should of got help. when i say that people thinks i'm being rude. and no i'm not. he went though some serious trauma and should of just went. i heard that the family was gonna go to family therapy but Michael didn't want to. if this true he should have. i understand Michael family is crazy and he probably didn't want to go to family therapy. that's understandable but for his own sake he should of went by himself. they claimed Michael had depression by the middle of his life and that's no surprise due all the crap he when though during that time. i feel so sorry for him.

    Agreed. I'm skeptical this person was ever really a fan also. These people will do anything to sound credible.

    I still be a fan, but I’d become a very different person like I would’ve been in 2005. A very dark person.

    If Michael was guilty I would have been done with him and his music a long time ago.

    I have to agree with that as well, but thankfully he isn’t guilty, my son asked me the very same question a few days ago.
