Michael Jackson

If he hadn’t died, would he still be a has been and joke?

by Anonymousreply 19306/12/2021

Yes.

by Anonymousreply 105/30/2021

Yes. I wonder what his kids would’ve been like had he raised them to adulthood.

He would be cellmates with Bill Crosby.

He would currently be completely cancelled due to me too and widespread discussion of the molestation accusations. He would be done.

Considering what a mental and physical wreck he was near the end it's amazing that it was set up for him to perform a demanding series of performances called the "This Is It" tour. How could he have done it? I don't think he could have managed it and a lot of shows would have had to be cancelled, enraging his dimwit fans. Or maybe he would have died onstage. In any case, he was in no shape to go on tour. But he was in debt up to his eyeballs, so I guess he thought the money he made from the tour would make him solvent again. But I doubt it. Considering his spending habits his finances would have always been in the red.

by Anonymousreply 605/30/2021

Like said above, he would be completely eviscerated in the public sphere and may even be in prison like Cosby over the molestation allegations.

by Anonymousreply 705/30/2021

As a popular music artist, he was in serious trouble at the time he died. He had not released an album in about 8 years, and his albums had sold less and less well since the early 90s--the last time period that anyone could seriously claim he was a major force in music outside of legacy material. Had he lived, I doubt his fortunes would have turned around. His image was tarnished beyond repair by his bizarre behavior, lifestyle, plastic surgery, and the allegations of child abuse. I could see him releasing some new music now and then to minimal fanfare (I'm pretty sure it would have sounded very dated, even if newly recorded), but mostly he would be living as a complete recluse a la Greta Garbo in her later years, or, even more likely, Howard Hughes.

I’m not so sure he would be eviscerated. Even after the LN documentary and all the obvious evidence, he still has a ton of defenders. Hell, Hollywood stars defended him when he was alive and some still do. He benefitted from being (biologically) black because the racism card has been tossed around and, unlike R. Kelly, his victims were non POC so...

Obvious evidence? If you read the evidence, the credibility of Safechuck and the other one falls apart quickly. EeeeHeee was a freak and mentally ill, but I don't think he diddled those kids. And it was proven that Jordan and the other one were grifters. Staff that gave testimonies were previously fired for theft and sold stories to the tabs.

Not a fan of his music but I do think he put himself in a position to be setup.

R15 = bullshit. Where is it proven that Jordan or the others were grifters? Don’t post some fruit loop site whose only existence is to defend him either.

Jordan was smart to take the money because no jury would convict MJ as we later saw. At least it tarnished Michael a bit and Jordan got some form of justice. There are still dipshits like R15 out there that think Michael was ‘set up.’ Even after he was caught with Jordan, his compulsion and ego were so big that he still couldn’t stop it with the boys.

I think he would be a total recluse if he wasnt cancelled by metoo. His music would continue to be influential however. Michael Jacksons catalog and body of work is a product of not just Michael, but also Quincy Jones, Teddy Riley, Berry Gordy and ton of other brilliant people who made him what he was.

I agree that MJ would probably be a recluse if he were around today, he was already heading in that direction anyway. He would have his defenders, but most people would've cancelled him if he were still around. He was one sick freak.

"Obvious evidence? "

He would take little boys into his bedroom, into his bed, and close the door (which had an alarm on it). I think that's pretty "obvious evidence." What man who is NOT a child molester does that?

I actually have a funny story to tell you about Michael. I had a friend that worked at Wacko years ago. Kind of a novelty store in Hollywood. They closed the store so that Michael could shop. My friend was remembering there was this book that was full of pictures of children. He said I kept thinking to himself, I wonder if he’s going to grab that book. Said he was very nice he looked at the perfumes and things. But when he checked out he had that book of children.

Jackson was a nasty pedophile and he was deeply mentally unstable, drug addicted and had become a laughing stock caricature through his plastic surgery and insanity. He also died nearly broke.

If he had have lived he would have been socially ostracized and turned into an unspeakable subject. It is only because he died and that his music has survived. Had he lived and his pedophilia/other insane activities been properly investigated and him prosecuted and imprisoned, his music and any other legacy would have been withdrawn from play/mention.

There is a lot of money at play in this situation which is why the Jackson family and hangers on are so vicious in their attempts to discredit and vilify his child pedophile victims and deflect Jackson's crimes. Millions of dollars are at stake. The Jackson's are a family of grifters and liars because they all knew exactly what was going on and what he was doing. The rabid fans who defend him (they are like Scientology clams) hang on steadfastly to the younger, more innocent, untarnished Michael Jackson that had long gone towards the end of his life.

A lot of bad and critical things can be said about Madonna but one thing that should never been forgotten is that she refused to have anything to do with Jackson after she worked out what he was doing to kids.

Nobody had the chance R43 because Jackson died. Most pedophile cases come out years later when the children are grown adults and are able to properly understand and function through the prosecution process.

Too many credible people knew. There was too much credible evidence from victims and witnesses. Too many victims whose lives have been visibly destroyed.

There are so many people on Twitter and Tumblr who defend Jackson, it's really disheartening. I remember watching the Batman Lego movie which featured a Michael Jackson song and being shocked by that, yet when I looked on Twitter for what I assumed would be a ton of snark about it, saw nothing. Reviews talked about how sweet it was that a lovely Michael Jackson quote was the basis of the important message in the film. So gross.

Actually, I think MJ would have done ok if he lived. His large and rabid fan base disbelieves ANYTHiNG negative about him. He could have transitioned into more of a singer/performer and continued to earn money.

The child abuse thing would always be out there, but there was no way to get at him legally. Some folks might cacnel him, but his rabid fanbase would have kept him in cash via live shows. I believed Jimmy, but not the other one. Jimmy is a bit more timid. I don’t think he would have said anything if MJ was still alive.

His appearance would continue to get more bizarre as he tried to fight aging. Truthfully I thought his rock bottom problem was gender identity. Because he knew that would never float socially or in His wacky Jehovah Witness family, he got feminine surgeries one time and a big square chin the next. This would have continued until he would look even more like the Joker. The trans thing also got mixed up in his sexual orientation and acting out with children. I don’t think he was bright enough to figure out what was wrong on his own. His attraction to young boys struck me as him perhaps reliving his first sexual experience in some twisted way. He was really a sick person-not really competant. Hopefully as he got older his sex drive would diminish anyway and hopefully less parents would send their boys for sleep overs.

by Anonymousreply 5105/31/2021

R44 I think because of the circumstances there were few credible witnesses and no corroborating evidence. The cases against him came down to he said/he said. Just like in the Casey Anthony case these days a jury will not be able (smart enough) to piece together fragments/threads of circumstantial evidence. Unless there is a smoking gun sex tape (gross!) of Jacko having sex with some boy he would have beaten the charges every time.

There's no way he'd be alive in 2021 if he hadn't died in 2009. In the This Is It movie he looked emaciated, and I don't think he could have coped with old age. I'm surprised he even made it to 50.

R55, he often went after kids that had problems at home. Jordan’s parents were divorced and I think there was some acrimony. The dad was a Beverly Hills dentist and wrote some screenplays, so hardly a poor family. I think more than anything MJ was able to manipulate and frankly buy the parents off with the rich and glamorous lifestyle. My sister is wealthy but do I think she would have been one of these parents jetting around the world and allowing her son to ‘spend time’ time with MJ? Unfortunately, the answer is yes.

It’s interesting because in 1990s I would have thought his star power waned, you’d think that younger kids wouldn’t have been so enamored by him, but he was still getting the kids and parents in his web. If he was alive today I doubt many kids would be interested in hanging out with a 63 year old man.

On a side note, this is supposedly a fairly recent picture of Jordan. He grew up to be quite gorgeous.

by Anonymousreply 5905/31/2021

He really did all of this is in plain sight as we just looked the other way or just brushed it off as him being kooky.

I still remember in 1993, before the allegations broke, when Jackson was at the World Music Awards and Jordan was sitting on his lap. Someone was performing - I think it may have been Taylor Dayne or Whitney or someone else - and there was Michael bopping to the music as Jordan sat on his knee. It was bizarre. And the cameras kept cutting back to the two of them. Creepy.

It also annoyed me how Jackson always portrayed himself as some victim. "I didn't have a childhood". Yada yada yada. We get it. Many of us had shitty childhoods. I may still buy toys as collector items. But I have no desire to hang out with kids. I can't really understand a grown man wanting to hang out with young kids on a regular basis. And every six months, there seemed to be a new kid. It was creepy.

But MJ has so many defenders that I don't know if he would have been cancelled by #MeToo. It's like what Oprah said on the HBO special post-LN, she knew she was going to hear from the MJ loons and sure enough, she did. And still does.

And he used that excuse for years. How many years do you need to hang out with kids to make up for the childhood you supposedly lost?

by Anonymousreply 6005/31/2021

I think he would have gone to college and got a degree in early childhood education then opened up a chain of day care centers. “Uncle Mike’s Tender Touch Day Care”

One of the things that gets me about MJ and the African American community is that most of the ones I knew growing up hated him. They said he was a sellout, a freak, and tried to be white. But, the moment he died they changed to he was a great artist and the molestation should never be spoken about again and the skin whiting was just because he suffered from vitiligo, though that doesn’t explain the nose.

by Anonymousreply 6205/31/2021

Whilst the court of public opinion would have found him guilty of kiddy fiddling, a court of law, on the other hand, wouldn't. Twitter may have cancelled him, but no court would have found him guilty.

Would he of worked again? Hard to tell, given that his mental and physical health would continue to dog him though. He wouldn't have been short of fans, but whether his body would have been up to it, I have no idea.

That leads me to believe that he would of continued to lead a reclusive lifestyle. Living out his fantasy lifestyle alone in a big house. Dogged by pain and mental health issues.

That’s pretty much par for the course, R62. OJ was also disliked especially by black women since he married a white woman after leaving his black wife. Any other man would’ve been found guilty of those murders. Not OJ with a majority black women jury. Years later one had the audacity to say she might not do it again (acquit) if she could go back because she thought he’d do more for the black community after they let him walk and he didn’t.

His loony mega fans would have provides him with a handsome income attending his Vegas shows and buying his tacky souvies.

Supposing Jackson survived his OD, he likely would have been a Betty Ford resident for a bit. His supply of boys may have dried up when the OD showed how sick he really was.

Amazing how the parents of the boys he molested just handed their kids over to him, this very strange celebrity who wanted to have "sleepovers" with them. But greed is a powerful motivating force. The mother of Jordie Chandler received diamond and ruby jewelry from Jackson as a "token", he said. A bribe was what it was. One of the mothers in "Leaving Neverland" gushed about meeting celebrities like Sean Connery (swoon!) and partaking of the fine wines that Jackson provided at Neverland. In return for all these perks she gave her son to Jackson as a playmate, and supposedly unbeknownst to her, a lover. I always thought charges should have been brought against the mothers of these boys. They instigated their son's molestation; it was child abuse. They were as responsible as Jackson.

A lot of Black people did not and do not defend Michael Jackson's actions or any of the other Jacksons. Sure, we enjoyed his music and see him as someone who broke boundaries in the music industry and pop culture as a Black man back in the 80s. But plenty of us knew he was sick and self-hating. Stand-up comics were mocking Michael back in the 80s. The plastic surgeries, wigs and skin whitening went way beyond wanting to make himself look more attractive. He wanted to change his entire racial makeup. Joe Jackson really instilled some self-hate into his children. Majority of the Jacksons got nose jobs and have non-Black spouses. Jackson hopped on the Afrocentric "woke" trend in the 90s to get acceptance back from the Black community with music videos like "Remember the Time" and "They Don't Care About Us" but all of that just came across as pandering and superficial. The fact is Michael chose to have a white woman have his children (and a mestizo woman in Bigi's case) and used a white man's sperm to have white children under his name. All of his abuse victims are white or Latino boys between the age of 10 to 13 too. No Black parent would let their child spend the night with a strange man (even if it was Michael Jackson) especially let them share the same bed. The only people I actually see vehemently defend Jackson are white women who are obsessed with him. He hated being Black and had an unhealthy attraction to young white and light-skinned brown boys.

[quote] A man who had to work his whole childhood.

Child labor was common in The US until around the mid-20th Century and it's still common in most of the world. I know many teenagers who work to help their families. Many people have traumatic childhoods but they still mature, grow up and become responsible law-abiding adults especially if they seek therapy and treatment. A lot of people with childhood trauma do not grow up and build a giant theme park in their backyard and invite random kids over for slumber parties. MJ seemed to have a severe mental illness not just PTSD.

[quote] A man who was bright but uneducated, and felt shy and inferior around adults. A man who was surrounded by people who constantly wanted things from him.

He was an introvert. Big deal. Many adults are introverted and they work jobs and interact with other adults just fine. They just prefer to spend time alone or read books when they have the freedom to. Plus MJ was a ruthless businessman who was said to sabotage other competition. There is audio of him taking phone calls in his regular deep speaking voice and even in some interviews, his normal voice slips out. His high-pitched Peter Pan voice was part of his persona.

Also MJ defenders don't seem to understand that pedophiles don't see their actions as hurting a child. They even think what they're doing is good for the kid and they it's a romantic consensual relationship. Their logic (or lack thereof) is not based on reality because they are mentally ill and suffer from a paraphilia. MJ didn't love all children. He had a certain physical type, all of them were preteen boys and none of these boys were ugly, disabled or obese either.

Prince was far superior to MJ.

by Anonymousreply 9906/01/2021

Prince was an artist who wrote and produced his material, played multiple instruments and even had a better singing range. MJ was a pop performer first and foremost, he peaked artistically with Thriller and declined after that. Quincy Jones was really the genius behind Jackson because after they parted ways, it all went downhill. Dangerous was a complete step down in quality and only the singles on that were worth listening too.

Janet recognized Prince's talent and moved out to Minneapolis to try to work with him. She ended up working with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and thus "Control" was born. "Control" was better than "Bad" which came out a year after and then when "Don't Be Cruel" by Bobby Brown and "Heart Break" by New Edition both came out in 1988, this kicked off the new jack swing movement. NWA, LL Cool J and Public Enemy starting becoming hugely popular too. Michael was really reluctant to incorporate more R&B and hip-hop into his work. But you could see MJ begrudgingly started hopping on the new jack swing sound with "Dangerous" and "HIStory" and hired Teddy Riley and Jam and Lewis to start producing his work.

Her 'Donna Summer' album was terrible and nearly bankrupted Geffen Records. It cost a fortune to produce and they had to layoff several employees after it lost a ton of money. It officially ended Donna's career.

As critics pointed out at the time, Quincy's production worked beautifully with Michael's soft, thinner voice, but fought against Donna's bigger and brassier voice. It didn't work at all.

You never saw Michael hanging out with girls, you never saw him with kids of all races and age groups, you never saw him with ugly, obese or disabled children, et cetera.

Prince's music was more adult too. Michael's music was more simplistic and family-friendly. Mike had an obsession with being a brand like Disney with his saccharine wholesome manufacture image. Prince didn't have an issue working with Madonna because she wasn't afraid to take risks of make mature content. Prince was proud to be a black man too and probably felt disgusted by MJ's self-hating antics.

"I knew a girl named Nikki, I guess U could say she was a sex fiend/I met her in a hotel lobby, masturbating with a magazine"

"U don't need no money, U don't need no clothes/The second coming, anything goes"

"Take me baby, kiss me all over/Play with my love/Bring out what's been in me 4 far 2 long"

"If you're tired of the masturbator/Come on over 2 my neighborhood/We can jump in the sack and I'll jack U off"

"U had a pocket full of horses/Trojan and some of them used...I'm gonna try 2 tame your little red love machine"

"Look here, Marsha, I'm not saying this just 2 be nasty/I sincerely wanna fuck the taste out of your mouth"

"I'll give U head/Til you're burning up/Head/Til U get enough/Head/Til your love is red/Head love til you're dead"

Michael was severely mentally stunted. He never matured enough to handle an adult relationship. I think it's sad that he never got to experience real romantic love. I think he damaged Culkin. He's never really been all there since his abuse from Jackson.

Culkin was also being abused by his father who stole his money and would beat him if he messed up his lines. A typical greedy stage parent who exploited his son. Culkin has some type of PTSD and struggled with sobriety for years. Jackson took advantage of him but I think Culkin justified that in his mind since he had to deal with his crazy father. I hope Culkin is in therapy. At least his brothers turned out alright.

Madonna and Michael Jackson were so publicity hungry that they went to the Academy Awards together. as each other's "dates." A tabloid (an American one) said after the awards they went and had "kinky" sex; he supposedly watched her masturbate, or some silly story like that. At any rate, I think they were considering doing a musical project together, but that of course didn't happen, maybe because they were both so egotistical and disliked each other so much. Jackson would call her "that heifer." I don't what she would have called him.

I imagine if he didn't die and Katherine didn't take them in while they were still young enough. They would have been more fucked up than they already are. Prince seems the most well-adjusted and he is educated. Paris is deeply damaged. Bigi is very stoic, so it's hard to tell what he is really feeling.

I suspect by the early 1990s Prince and Madonna had heard enough rumors about what Michael was getting up to with these “sleep overs”. The rumors were in the general public for a long time.

Regarding working on Bad, Prince didn’t like the opening lyric and didn’t want to do that song with MJ. He also did a rearrangement of the song which he sent to Mj, but never heard back from him.

Prince and Madonna were no angels, but MJ by the 1990s was a full on mad man: INSANE. His face was the testimony to that.

Michael didn't like Madonna because she was a grown woman with strong opinions and was very independent. He was kind of misogynistic which made sense due to the Jehovah's Witness upbringing. I don't think he and Janet were all that tight especially when she tried to get a solo career and became successful. She also had a more pro-black and sexually liberated image. He actually piggybacked off Janet's success in the 90s with the duet "Scream" produced by Jam & Lewis. He apparently sabotaged Jermaine's career since Jermaine had success in the early 80s. La Toya and Rebbie on the other hand, were never a threat and 3T was kind of a joke but Michael didn't mind helping his nephews out for "reasons".

I've read in several sources that Madonna hung around MJ for a little while (this was during the time of their Oscars appearance together) and she was really put off by the little boys who were always around him.

Janet wasn't close to Michael as much as the media makes it seem. She was very independent and rebellious from the family likely due to being the youngest. She eloped with James DeBarge at age 18 which pissed off her parents and she fired Joe as her manager around that time too. She was already becoming independently wealthy from all the acting roles she was doing like Good Times, Fame and Diff'rent Strokes. She moved out to Minneapolis to work with Prince despite him being her brother's rival and she ended up having a very successful music career. Michael in fact just seemed to use her to promote himself like having her present him an award in 1993 during the peak of Janet's success and hiring her producers Jam & Lewis to produce a duet Scream.

When Michael Jackson was maybe the most popular entertainer in the world Brooke Shields aggressively pursued him. She called him and called him, begging him to take her with him went he went to the Grammys (he won a shitload of them that year). He demurred; he did NOT want to take her. He told his sister LaToya to tell her to back off but LaToya told him to handle it himself. Milquetoast Michael finally acquiesced and took her to the Grammys as his "date." He also took along Emmanuel Lewis as his "date." He carried Lewis around in his arms, although Lewis was way past the baby/toddler stage. It was such a strange sight, Michael Jackson and Brooke Shields and Emmanuel Lewis in Jackson's arms, that people were laughing at them. Brooke, exasperated, cried out "They're making fun of us!" Although the idea of Brooke Shields and Michael Jackson as a "couple" was ludicrous, both Jackson and Shields made like they were, um, very close. It dawned on Michael that it might be a good idea for him to have a high profile girlfriend" and Brookie just loved the publicity she got from being Michael's "girl." She bearded for him for quite a while. Then the child molestation accusations started heating up and she distanced herself from him. When previously asked about him she'd say "I love him dearly" but later would not comment at all when asked about him. They hadn't seen or spoken in years, but when he died she popped up at his memorial service to eulogize him and their "relationship." But their "relationship" was just a Hollywood scam.

Michael Jackson gave Elizabeth Taylor expensive jewelry. In fact, he bought her jewels so she would show up at some event he wanted her to go to.

The first time that MJ had an interest in women other than Diana and Elizabeth was when he needed Lisa for PR during the child abuse scandal. Besides as a straight guy why did he have to employ surrogates to have children? A straight superstar who couldn’t find a hot chick to have a baby with? His fans are deluded.

But it was during her time with “I’m a Celebrity…” that she dropped some juicy gossip. While chatting with her co-stars during an episode of the show, McCormick casually let it slip that she dated Michael Jackson as a teenager.

“Do you guys like Michael Jackson?” Maureen McCormick asked her co-stars. Of course, everyone said “Yes.”

“We used to go roller skating in Woodland Hills [California], I used to go over to their house all the time,” said McCormick. “We held hands and kissed on the cheeks, never on the lips. It was so cute, he loved our show – they all did though. We used to go over and hang out and watch them rehearse.”

McCormick added that she thought the basis of their relationship was mutual admiration.

“We would talk a lot and dream a lot and just, I think we admired each other and, yeah,” said McCormick.

HBO only lost a contract case concerning a non disparagement clause, R188. The court didn’t find that the documentary was false.

It was and it is. They lied about him just like they lied about Woody Allen.

190- Put a sock in it, especially if you are Black. Michael Jackson hated being Black and any Black person with sense couldn't stand his bleached ,duppy looking arse by the time the 1990s began. He was just somebody to regard as a poppyshow who was very weird around too similar looking kids, with the odd less and less Africanized hit tune. Thank fuck for any white person who can't stand the dead freak. As far as I am concerned there are too many white and Black people giving the nonce that was Michael Jackson regard. Stop it with the "Black famous man accused of being a sex offender....oh look, white people are racist" fuckry. We got a whole music genre full of overt homophobia, misogynoir, misogyny, celebration of murder and a whole disapora, religious or not that minimises sex offending and for whom children are super disposable , at least from the point of view of the men( as a group), but that same group, whatever the sexual orientation or gender presentation expects the women to fight on their behalf when they are stuck on stupid or in schtuck with the police. You can afford to calm your tits about your support of Michael Jackson on Datalounge by accusing any supposed white person of racism because they haven't fallen for the okey doke. Black gay men have far more urgent things to attend to as a group, such as the self loathing and lack of self control that means that getting HIV is being seen as a rite of passage and not something that is wholly avoidable. Or is that Whitey's fault, too? Mi shame fi yuh. Do better. Whining is not manly ( as in being adult , not how masculine or not somebody is). Whining on behalf of the dead , self loathing paedophile Michael Jackson is even less so. Go and be a man and set up your own Black website where you can inhibit censure over Michael Jackson to your heart's content. Lipstickalley has a Michael Jackson forum that is so deluded that there are many threads on his imaginary, heterosexual love life. Go there, but beware that even there, is negativity.

I'm glad Janet ended up being very pro-gay despite being raised as a Jehovah's Witness. It's unfortunate that PRince became homophobe as he became more religious. I'm sure Michael was homophobic and even more afraid of adult gay men than he was of women.

Ha ha! Those photos of him and Brooke Shields "kissing" are funny as hell. So posed, so fake. How could anyone in their right mind think those two were having a "romance?"
