    At first "the detail" looked like a cool channel dedicated to Michael. But the more videos I watch, the more it seems that the guy behind it is rather dedicated to his monetizing, not afraid to incorporate juicy gossip from unnamed dodgy sources.

    For example in this video...

    That whole Don King segment including alleged quotes from him and Michael is almost word-for-word lifted from J. Randy Taraborrelli's ultra gossipy unauthorized MJ biography.

    And Quincy Jones calling Michael "Smelly" had nothing to do with his nose (as someone doing no research could think), but with Michael saying "smelly jelly" instead of "funky". Quincy himself explained that some years ago.

    In other videos I saw him citing Matt Fiddles as if that scam artist was anywhere near a credible source.

    Etc.

    So The Detail is really The Gossip Detail.

    Yeah, they’re not really as well informed as they pretend to be. And they could have found the “Smelly” story right there on YouTube:



    Since both Quincy and MJ agree here, live on air, this is the official version, in my opinion.

    Can’t really blame them for consulting Taraborrelli’s book, though. When I started out researching MJ, I found it’s being quoted all the time as a source, in all kinds of publications, so you kinda accept it as a credible source.

    That said, they have to be called out on their mistakes, and I hope that they keep improving. They’re very pro-MJ, and I think it’s not the worst stuff a new fan can come across on YouTube.

    Remains the question... why did Michael think of "funky" as a bad word? (if so)
    Maybe someone native english speaking can explain that?
    Did it originally have a more rude meaning or so?

    Merriam-Webster has this to say:

    Definition of funky
    (Entry 1 of 2)
    1 US : having an offensive odor : foul
    a funky smell

    https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/funky

    But even then, it’s really not such a bad word, is it? Or is there yet another meaning?

    The detail.... I really don't know what to call this channel anymore. they get some of the facts right then sometimes they don't.

    When I saw the video about inside Michael's BIZARRE art collection, I thought it was the National Enquirer all over again.

    I've seen a few videos from this channel, and while I do appreciate MJ fans creating content about him, I'm not fond of some of the clickbait-looking thumbnails and "provocative" titles. It's not necessary. If the idea is to make something look a bit scandalous to grab the attention of non-fans and then present them with real facts in an attempt to open their minds, I can appreciate the thought process, but it just feels icky. Getting facts right is also crucial.

    I've seen videos from this channel recommended to me numerous times but always hesitated because of how click-baity they sounded. Seems I was right.

    Also, I recall seeing this channel start to pop up sometime last year after LN aired... does anyone else think this may be some kind of stunt? I don't know if it's a fan or if it's someone pretending to be a fan to lure fans in and then trap them with half-truths.

    I think they’re fans who want to cash in a little by making these videos. They make a couple of mistakes, some bigger, some smaller, but it’s really not that bad in the grand scheme of things. I think that they might even inspire new fans to consider looking into topics they wouldn’t have otherwise. I feel mostly positive about this channel. It’s okay, in my opinion, as long as they keep improving.

    Yes, it's just one guy. He uses some voice-artist service to have "his" texts read out properly.

    To be honest, I feel I read more BS here on this forum at times than I’ve ever seen in his videos.

    I remember last year, when I started out researching MJ, I had some major trouble telling fact from fiction – which is why I came here. It can be really confusing, and you often have to peel away a lot of layers of misinformation to get through to the true core of a story.

    Overall, that guy does a good job, and his videos are concise and interesting to watch. Yes, they are clickbaity, but that’s how they attract viewers these days. Everyone does it. The health channel I’m sometimes watching is much worse.
