    Of course Michael is a businessman. There's no way for anyone to know the scope of all of his business deals, and what's involved, the worth, etc...it's not our business anyway. I'm sure there are people that think Michael's a terrible businessman because of lawsuits, etc., but you know, every businessman makes a bad decision at times....that doesn't make them a bad businessman though. Some things work, other things don't. Like I said...there's no way for any of us to know what all of Michael's business affairs are. There could be tons of them that we haven't or won't hear of. The only major ones we hear of are the beatles catalogue and his lawsuits, etc. It's best not to judge what you don't know...shouldn't judge anyway. Michael doesn't have to, and shouldn't, tell everyone or broadcast each and every business deal, etc. he has ever made. It's his life, his money, his career.

    yep. that's why there are rules on this site to govern that.

    we're talking about being around a long time IN the business.
    a lot of good entertainers are no longer in the business, because they don't have the smarts to remain.

    You are kidding, right? Technically, every recording artist is an independent contractor. Any artist who starts or owns a production company, publishing company or incorporates their name in order to profit off of it is in business.

    It's not called 'music business' for nothing.

    He a good businessman with stocks on musical publishings, he was great with some deals he made with companies to promote their products and such.

    Other than that, he hasn't had any other successful business ventures, really.

    l've just post french MJJ forum that Michael is a businessman for me it's not something new l always see him as a businessman and when he sold Neverland he has his reason for that maybe he wants to make something better for his children more interissting than Neverland.
    Michael Jackson is my drug. I'm addicted to him. He's very important to me. It's hard to explain how someone whom I have never met before can mean so much to me. I guess Michael won't be Michael if he's not that magical. MEHDI

    He's an amazing businessman. He knows how to make the biggest deals ever and manipulate things and come out on top with just about everything. He's got smarts. I think he learned this from Joseph and from Barry Gordy, and applied it to how he does things. Best part is, he's so quiet about it. Someone above said he thinks talking about those things is tacky. So, okay. That makes sense, especially whenever he makes business deals that turn out to be a flop (like LA Gear, and whatever clothing line he tried to put out). If the public doesn't know about them hardly anyway, they go away quietly with no fuss.

    Selling Neverland was a business deal.

    If Michael's not a good business man then how the heck did he end up owning 50% of Sony music publishing?

    He's very smart. Most business men have an area of expertise. Donald Trump, for example, is in hotels and resorts, etc... Bill Gates is in computer software. Michael is in music. He's a good business man. And any successful business man will tell you that there are a few good business ventures and many failed ones along the way.
