I'm not sure he's crying, he probably has a migraine or something.
Since this was at the eve of when the Chandler allegations broke it is safe to say he was in severe emotional pain because of that. Whether he is crying or has a migrane or both is besides the point.
I'm surprised that Michael even went on tour after this. I think that the whole 93 leg of the Dangerous tour should have been cancelled
Well, he had to. He had a contract with promoters. I'm sure he didn't want to go. But you saw what happened later with the cancellation of the remaining of the tour. More legal and money problems. Just like This Is It Tour cancellation.
It may also be from scalp surgeries he had at the time. A balloon procedure. That also happened at the time. I didn't watch the footage.. just saying.
Why can't it be both? If the date is correct on the tape then yes, he already knew what was coming re. allegations. Do you think he just shook that off as if it was nothing and it was all just about a scalp surgery?
I am sure emotional problems can have an effect on one's physical well-being including the strengthening of otherwise existing physical problems.
I am not sure why some of his fans are so dismissive of the effects of the allagetions on his emotional and physical well-being. No one shakes something like that off. It DOES have an effect on you. It's no rocket science.
Exactly. Of all the horrible things that had been written and said about Michael up to that point, this one literally knocked me off my feet. I thought about him all the time, hurt for him, cried for him and now seeing it for real is worse than ever.To re-iterate what Respect is saying.... Imagine being in a position where you have been around children for a large part of your life doing charity work and generally doing extraordinary things for ordinary children.
Now imagine someone has gone and said that you had sexually molested a child.
Now imagine having to go to work.
There are many ways to handle something like this and Michael did it with complete class by going on tour and trying to fulfill all his prior commitments.
He always said that he felt at home on stage, but I dont think singing a Motown Medley and creating a mass singalong is ever going to erase the fact that you have been accused and being investigated for quite possibly the worst thing on earth you can do.
Maybe Michael thought it would be better to get away from it and just concentrate on what he loved, but in hindsight it was a horrible decision. He was already home, he could have stayed and properly recovered from the scalp surgery and properly fought the allegations, instead of leaving it to others.
A lot of that decision came because the judge allowed the civil trial before charges were even brought. A clear violation of civil rights.Jordan father had this all setup plain and simple he knew what he was doing his plan was not to return Jordan back to June yet and that the part that get me. And another thing Michael lawyers want to settle this out of court that why their told Michael he must move on
Super Star or not if somebody is lying on you you want to clear your name you want to set the record straight and imo Michael did not get that chance and it cost him because it brought along another person to do the same thing.

They should have thought it through better and appealed, demanded a new judge, whatever the hell they could do.
Typical. A persons health and well being is not important, but what is important is $$$$$$$$$
It makes me sick
