You know what one of the benefits to somebody dying is? You can say whatever you want about them and no one can sue you because you can’t libel a dead person; libel only applies to the living. So normally when we talk or write about something someone did, even when we’re sure they did it, we have to use weasel words like “allegedly” because saying someone is a rapist leaves you open to a lawsuit but saying that they’re “allegedly” a rapist means you’re just talking about allegations. But when they’re dead, you can say whatever you want.
Ronald Reagan couldn’t ride a horse, the only reason he had so many is because he had sex with them. Margot Kidder was a sad whackadoodle who had a Google alert for her name and she consisted on a diet of cat food and live rats. Eazy-E was actually a white guy from Brentwood in blackface. See, all of those are half-truths at best and no one can do anything about it.
So you know how Michael Jackson used to fuck little boys? Well, somebody made a documentary about it that’s airing at Sundance. It’s called Leaving Neverland and follows two men who were abused by Jackson and how it impacted them and MJ’s family is pissed about it. Here’s what they had to say, via CNN.
“Michael always turned the other cheek, and we have always turned the other cheek when people have gone after members of our family – that is the Jackson way,” the statement said. “But we can’t just stand by while this public lynching goes on, and the vulture tweeters and others who never met Michael go after him.”
Yeah, he turned the other cheek and then put his dick between those cheeks. I mean, I say that, but I’m not sure that he actually did anything he’s accused of. I’m just saying it because I can, because he can’t sue me for libel. I actually lean towards believing he’s innocent of anything.
Dan Reed, the director of the four-hour documentary, (which seems way too long, honestly) shot back at the Jacksons in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
“It is a four-hour documentary by an experienced documentarian with a long track record in investigation and telling complex stories and this is a complex story,” says Reed. “So I’d say it’s beyond doubt a documentary. Anyone with any knowledge of that form would recognize a documentary. A four-hour piece, is that a tabloid? I didn’t characterize Jackson at all in the film — I think if you watch it you’ll have noticed that it’s a story about these two families and Jackson is an element of that story. But I don’t seek to characterize him at all. I don’t comment on Jackson. It’s not a film about Michael. … The film itself is an account of sexual abuse, how sexual abuse happens and then how the consequences play out later in life.”
I mean really, four hours? You couldn’t cram enough human suffering into two hours? You had to have a movie with an intermission in it to really get your point across that molesting kids is bad? Those Lord of the Rings movies were only 3 hours long and they had Orcs.

There’s a lot of talk about who should play James Bond once Daniel Craig retires, but you know what would have been hilarious? Michael Jackson playing James Bond. Imagine how that movie would have played out.
INT EVIL LAIR
Bond is restrained on a table as GOLDFINGER’S laser slowly burns a line between BOND’S legs, getting closer and closer.
Do you expect me to talk, Goldfinger?
No, Mister Bond, I expect you to die.
That could have actually happened, because an excerpt from Hollywood agent Michael Ovitz’s memoir Who is Michael Ovitz? obtained by Page Six, Jackson told the agent he wanted to be James Bond. But it didn’t happen until after an unfortunate guacamole accident.
As he talked, his hat fell into the guacamole in front of him, and he picked it out and put it back on – unfortunately, with a blob of guacamole attached, which began to slide down the brim. Ron Meyer tapped my leg to draw my attention to it, and we all watched in horrified fascination as it slid lower and lower while Michael was pitching us hard on how he was America’s next action hero. Then the blob fell off, and Ron totally lost it. I cracked up, too, and Michael stalked out.
I went and found him and explained for fifteen minutes that we hadn’t been laughing at him, but at the incident. … Finally, Michael’s face cleared. ‘Okay, Ovitz. Okay,’ he said. ‘But I want to play James Bond.’ I am proud to report I didn’t laugh, this time.
I think this would have been an amazing movie. Woody Allen played Jimmy Bond in Casino Royale, and Jackson is only marginally less believable as an action hero than Woody Allen.

Paris Jackson can sing. At least, that’s what I’m led to believe based on this video.
That’s Michael’s daughter singing “Smile” with Austin Brown. I’ve never heard of Austin Brown or heard of the song, but I think it’s pretty good. I like his voice, as well. Paris Jackson is singing, but I can’t tell if she’s good or if she’s being carried by Brown. There’s clear evidence that Brown is good on his own, Jackson never goes solo in this video.
Some are already saying that Paris sounds a lot like her father, but let’s wait until we see more evidence, ok? Michael Jackson was one of the best singers and entertainers of his generation. Paris Jackson is barely swaying and sort of contributing to a duet. Until she gives me “Black or White” I’m not ready to put her next to Tito, much less Michael.
That’s a bit unfair.
She’s definitely better than Tito. Even if she can’t sing a lick.
And are we still doing that thing where we’re not sure if Paris actually has any of Michael’s DNA? Because if we are, it’s a bit farfetched to say she has her father’s voice. She could still be a good singer and not have her father’s voice.
If you’re wondering who Austin Brown is, he’s the cousin of Paris. He’s the son of Rebbie Jackson, who was Michael’s oldest sister. Why can’t we praise him and say that he has the voice of his uncle? Because that dude is good and we should be paying attention to him, not Paris.
On The Late Late Show with James Corden, Madonna confessed that one time she plied Michael Jackson with white wine and got him to make out with her.
Why is she only bringing this up now? She told Corden:
“I haven’t had the chance to talk about it, no one ever asks me.”
That would be a weirdly specific question to ask, and kind of a weird one, considering his rape mansion full of child porn and everything.
So, how did it go down?
“I did [make the first move on Jackson] … He’s a little bit shy. However, he was a willing accomplice. I did get him to, sort of, loosen up with a glass of Chardonnay. And it did wonders. It worked wonders.”

Noses are such little things, really, but tiny nips and tucks can make huge differences! For some, a nose job can be a door opener.
For others, a nose job can be a total mess - even a career ender.

You never know what might happen at the VMAs.
Kanye might interrupt someone's acceptance speech.
Nicki Minaj might call out Miley Cyrus.
Kanye might interrupt everyone's acceptance speeches.
You really never know.

Michael Jackson was a weird guy. We loved him for it. We still love him for it. But it did make him an ever-complicated person and nearly a decade after his death, his secrets are still coming out. Dr. Conrad Murray (the doctor famous for over-prescribing medication to the late pop star) has taken it on as his responsibility to share these secrets though he promised he would never speak a word of Michael’s confessions to him as a patient.
In his tell-all book titled This Is It, the slimy physician lets everyone in on secrets Michael banked on no one ever knowing about him. It’s known that Michael was an abuse victim. It’s known that this abuse led Michael to make some of his more questionable and controversial decisions. When talking to Murray:
He began talking vaguely, seeming to have more difficulty describing precisely what happened to him. Maybe he was almost at the limit to his cathartic confession that night.
Or maybe he didn’t really want to say these things to someone who may have had intentions of betraying him. It was during this confession that Michael alluded to a number of procedures he may have undergone. Per Daily Mail:
Michael Jackson had hormone injections when he was 13 to delay puberty and keep his voice high, his ex doctor has claimed.
Fuck. I already have trust issues and now I probably can’t trust a doctor. He goes on to get petty:
It turned out he always wore socks because he was so ashamed of the way his feet looked. The fact Michael’s feet, something critical to him, were in such poor condition was a sign not only had he neglected himself but those around him were not keeping a close eye on his well-being.
This man can no longer practice medicine in three states. Do you feel any better knowing these things about MJ? Or do you feel dirty?
Even after his death, Michael Jackson can't escape his demons.
Inside the singer's Neverland Ranch in Los Olivos, CA, authorities (who carried search warrants) uncovered "filthy photos and videos of men, women, boys and girls in perverted positions, drugs to treat sex addiction, with multiple prescriptions written by a variety of physicians for people close to the star," according to Radar Online.
The raid took place in November 2003, nearly six years before his fatal overdose.
“The detectives’ report cites Michael even used sexy photos of his own nephews, who were in the band 3T, in their underwear to excite young boys," one private investigator revealed.
A witness tipped off the cops to a storage unit, where even more "materials" were moved once the investigation launched.
Inside the unit, the report reads were “notes, diaries, documents, photographs, audiotapes and videotapes.
“The documents collected by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department paint a dark and frightening picture of Jackson,” another investigator told the site.
“The documents exposed Jackson as a manipulative, drug-and-sex-crazed predator who used blood, gore, sexually explicit images of animal sacrifice and perverse adult sex acts to bend children to his will.
“He also had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.”
The reports are prettying harrowing; authorities had to record the types of photos they came across, which reportedly included images of children "bleeding, in pain and tormented."
Jackson also had a book titled Room To Play, which contained a "deeply disturbing photo of a "JonBenet Ramsey look-alike with a noose around her neck,” the source said.
“There were also photos and videos featuring sadomasochistic sex, bondage, transsexuals — ‘chicks with d–ks,'" the source added.
“Michael Jackson had truly perverse sexual appetites, and the twisted photos tell a sadistic side of him that nobody really knew.”
After Gavin Arvizo came forward to accuse the pop star, Jackson was charged with 7 counts of child molestation and two counts of providing "an intoxicant to a minor under the age of 14 in order to seduce him," all felonies.
When the charges were brought against Jackson, District Attorney Tom Sneddon noted that “The materials described … are relevant to the issues of the defendant’s intent and his method of ‘grooming’ young boys to satisfy his lewd desires.”
Ron Zonen, former Santa Barbara Senior Assistant District Attorney was involved in the case and told Radar, “A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children, and Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time.
“We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse. There’s not much question in my mind that Michael was guilty of child molestation.”
Jackson was acquitted of all charges in June 2005, and allegedly paid out around $200 million worth of "hush money" to his victims.
These celebs are not all guilty of the same things ... but we would not want them near our kids for any reason. And we doubt we're alone.

Michael Jackson, who passed away tragically and long before his time on June 25, 2009, would have been 57 years old this Saturday.
Without a doubt the defining entertainer of his generation and beyond, his groundbreaking music and pop cultural impact are peerless.
He changed the music landscape forever, inspiring countless, and breaking every record in the books and leaving a legacy like no other.
Long before Michael Jackson died, but even more so after he did, his work became iconic, and his personal eccentricities unparalleled.
If you're looking for scandals, controversy and crazy stories that are uniquely, well, Michael Jackson, you need not look very far at all.
Fans remember him for his music and his compassion, however; MJ's charitable contributions were almost as numerous as his #1 hits.
Most of all, he would surely like to be remembered for raising Prince, Blanket and Paris Jackson, all of whom feel his loss most deeply.
Here's wishing his family and friends the best on this somber occasion, which has given way to celebrations of his life for seven years.
In the hopes that they find peace and think fondly of the man, we hope he may find peace in the way fans come together in his honor.
It’s not Jesus on toast anymore, it’s Michael Jackson dancing on the clouds.
The people of central Virginia witnessed a vague form of Michael Jackson seemingly dancing in a cloud formation during a lightning storm on June 23 nearly an exact six years after his death on June 25, 2009.
The photographer, originally unaware of his spiritual capture, only took the picture to capture the lightning storm for his storm chasing app and later uploaded it to the WTVR CBS 6 Facebook page.
“The image that you see of Michael Jackson just happens to be there,” The photographer John Plashal certified clarifying he did not alter the photo. “It’s pretty wild.”
Did anyone think it was altered…? It’s pretty Rorschach-y. I mean, I guess it’s there, but it’s mostly just a fuzzy two-tone cloud, right? Have I lost all my childhood fantasy?
Apparently, Pashal is a Michael Jackson fan which in no way influenced his vision in these clouds.
According to many who have viewed the video above, the weather report in Central Virgina this week was cloudy... with a chance of moonwalking!
Photographer John Plashal captured a picture on Tuesday of a cloud formation over Goochland County that does look eerily like Michael Jackson.
The King of Pop, of course, died six years ago, nearly to that day (on June 25, 2009).
"The image that you see of Michael Jackson just happens to be there,” Plashal tells a local Fox affiliate, insisting he did not doctor the photo in any way, shape or form.
What do you think, readers? Is The Man Above sending us a message here? Is He paying homage to The Man in the Mirror?
Watch the footage closely and then join us in remembering Michael Jackson.
Death is another surprising way to earn moolah.
Just ask Jackson’s kids, Prince, Paris, and Blanket, who will all be inheriting $100 million if they choose to “liquidate the estate” today, as a source dishes to TMZ.
From being on the brink of bankruptcy during his final days, the estate has now grossed to nearly $2 billion due to the movie “This Is It,” the Cirque Show “Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour,” posthumous albums, and other business ventures.
That’s enough to cover the estate’s past debts… and so much more. Seems like revisiting MJ’s legacy every now and then still yields that much money, huh?

Fans around the world are remembering the late, great Michael Jackson (1958-2009) on June 25, the anniversary of his untimely passing.
A man whose personal eccentricities matched his incredible talent in terms of sheer amazement, he remains controversial to this day.
Gone but not forgotten, his unique legacy lives on through his music and his children, though not without sizable bumps in the road.
Here's a short photo tribute to a true entertainer, and an individual, who was as close to peerless as a human being ever has been.
