IN LV Michael and the Hiltons have a very active relationship,,,Paris J went shopping with Paris H and Mrs Hilton talked about having meals with MJ and his family !Also Frank Cacio was alwayes with Mj , Wade Roboson said he and MJ had a brabicue *spelling* party.Evan Ross talked about meeting MJ talking on the phone with him for hours....plus Akon , Teddy,William,Rushka, Ortega,and Ed Hardy designer.all these guys were with him in the cinamas and studios and resturants all the time in Las Vegas
But ,it is very strange thatthe BG seem to say that MJ was lonely all the time , and they want to paint him as a very sad person.... can any one ask them about these peoeple !
I think his sadness or loneliness despite having so many people to hang out with was because he just wanted to have some friends or a friend that looked at him as just a friend and not as the most famous man in the world. Although Kenny Ortega was his friend and hung out with him on shopping trips for instance, you can tell he was in awe of MJ aswell which might be the type of thing that upset Michael deep down. Keep praising him and saying "we love you Michael"... must have made him feel like "why do my friends have to act like fans?" "Stop kissing my ass" I want them to look at me like they would look at anyone else.
Just a theory.
^ Oh yeah, I know Kenny was trying to keep Michael's spirits up and reassure him during the TII rehearsals, but at one point it seemed like MJ was getting sick of it. Could just be me reading into it too much though.
You know the bit just as beat it is gonna start and kenny goes "We love you Michael!" and Michael's like "Yeah, I love you too" :smilerolleyes:
I thought that the title of the book would be " In defence of The King " so now it's " In Defence of Mr. Jackson " ?
I prefer with " The King "
I think that "In Defense of Mr. Jackson" is a much better title than the latter. It sounds like the bodyguards are still protecting him and doing their job... which is very, very refreshing, IMO. He was "Mr. Jackson" to them--not "The King."
Some fans may never be able to understand this... but Michael was a human-being just like the rest of us. He didn't crown himself as "The King." He was given a name at birth just like all of us were given one. He only wanted to be thought of as a normal person--even though when you're the most famous and greatest entertainer in the world, that's virtually impossible for people to even comprehend.
Sure, he loved extravagant things, but that was just Michael's taste. I have always seen and thought of him as "Mikey", "MJ", "Michael", "Michael Jackson'' and yes--even "Mr. Jackson", believe it or not. That could definitely be because of my military background, though. :lol:
Regardless... Police Officers, The Secret Service, The Armed Forces, Martial Artists, Body Guards, and any profession where one has to carry a gun, etc, etc, etc--We are all taught pretty much a very similiar code of honor. We are taught right away about a little thing called RESPECT.
With a little military background as well, I agree with what you've said. Mr. Jackson may not sound high enough to some, but the respect is still there, loud and clear. The "King" could be applied to so many others, just in different fields/types of music; king of rock and roll, king of this or that. MR. Jackson is a term of respect amongst those with certain backgrounds, and I do not take it to lessen importance or respect.
