    Xscape General Discussion

    I haven't posted on here for a very long time, but I just wanted to say how truly happy and excited I am with this new brilliant music. It's wonderful and so well done. I'm so in awe and happy that I'm not yet able to really analyse it all. Just so thankful.

    Treacy's Thriller

    ^ Agreed. Í don't get the negative response either. I think it's a wonderful show, creative and beautiful. I love the way Michael inspires so many other artists in so many different ways.

    Music of The Jacksons

    ^ Thanks for posting that!! Great stuff. I can't believe how flawlessly and beautifully Michael sang there. He's magic, and very cute also.

    MJ Forever Tribute/ MJJC Statement / Estate statement / Fan letter pg51/ GLE put on administration

    Re: MJJC Official Statement about Michael Forever Tribute / Tribute discussion / Estate statement @p Jermaine comes across as a spoiled kid (which he did on the reality show as well), going against his mother in public and tweeting his 'concerns'. He should do something about it when he feels...

    Of course, but I meant him just blabbing away without even having talked to the tribute organisers. Just to cause a stir. But that's not really an option if the organisers said so themselves that he would perform, as seems to have been said on tape. I just can't believe it.

    ^Jmie: Yes I saw it too, but I have this small hope it was just Gene Simmons pulling a prank by saying he is in, while he is not. Just to get publicity, like he did last year over his MJ opinions. edit: I only saw it in wrting, not them actually saying it.

    Katherine Jackson looks so uncomfortable in that video. It looks odd. Is it certain that Kiss was even anounced? As it is not in this video...

    Oh yes money... I thought a tribute concert was done without fees, you know, to honour your hero. To me, it seems inappropriate to want to make money from that, but that's my naive self perhaps. And if you are disgusted by someone, it's just immoral to make money to honour that person. Twisted.

    Very unwise decision from the organisation to include Kiss, but what I really don't understand is how Gene Simmons, if he really believes Michael was such an evil man, would agree to perform. This boggles my mind. It just makes no sense.

    Kiss? The band with Gene Simmons? Colour me surprised.

    That would be so sad. Hopefully it will make Michael shine. I don't really understand the negativity about the guest list. It is quite mixed, old, new, all kinds of genres, known names that respect Michael. And it isn't finished yet, right? So all kinds of acts could still be added to the list...

    Is this adressed to me? I don't see how this is a response to my post to be honest. I never even stated I think the tribute is ok, I didn't even vote in the poll. It was not about winning or losing a debate, it was about manners, or lack thereof. You mean, by THE END, there should be nothing...

    We should keep that in mind indeed. Frustration and anger and the easy anonymous forum that is the internet make these reactions possible, but that does not make them right. I do believe words matter. It's not just an unimportant byproduct of the conversation or debate but determines the entire...

    I don't know if you were referring to my post, but I think it's a matter of proportion. Being a mass killer or deranged dictator who oppressed millions is a bit easier to 'judge' than a family organising a tribute concert for their deceased superstar family member. For what they've 'done' the...

    Uhm, the way your argumentation works is like this: THEY, the ones I feel entitled to judge although I don't know them personally, are uncivilized, that's why I, the one in place to judge that horrible behaviour, am entitled to be at least as uncivilized towards those horrible people and in my...

    Because you will by being plain rude? I wish you lots of success in life. edit: I see you added something to your reply. That illustrates you missed my point. I didn't say people do not judge and should not judge, I said it's important to not do it in harsh wording, know your place in the...

    Oprah Winfrey chosen to receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award - Does she deserve it?

    ^Me too. It's hard to compare humanitarian efforts with one another. Luckily doing good it's not really competition material. I think she made a lot of people aware on important topics. And she made America read books again, which she can't be praised for enough.

    Look, the analogy with my friend's brother was not to say I can't have an opinion about her brother because of how he treats her, but that it's not MY place as a distant bystander to judge him in harsh wording about it. My friend did not appreciate that at all. She want support but she does not...
