Hard Times Just Don’t Go Away

On this 25 November , exactly 4 years 5 months since we lost Michael, as the fan community once again goes into battle mode, my thoughts turn to this time 10 years ago, 25 November 2003 and the trauma that we were heading into.

18 November 2003

In the evening of 18 November 2003 I was on the bus home. I had finished work and before I started my bus journey home I had been to HMV to buy Michael’s new CD single ONE MORE CHANCE.  I had forgotten to bring my CD Walkman so to pass the time on the bus I excitedly opened the CD and was reading the song credits.

My phone rings and I look to see who is ringing me. I see the name, its my friend Jenny phoning me from Ireland. That’s strange, Jenny always only texts or emails due to International phone charges. I answer the phone and Jenny is crying…. OMG what has happened…

I quickly put the CD back in my bag and try to make sense of what Jenny is telling me… I had been in work all day and had not been online or seen any news… In between sobs Jenny tells me something which makes my heart stop…. A boy has accused Michael of abusing him, police are searching Neverland , there is an arrest warrant for Michael and no one knows where he is.

I just cant believe what Jenny is telling me. I am sitting on a bus, Jenny is crying on the phone and my head is spinning , trying to process the information.

It is nearly 9 pm when I get home. My flatmate had been trying to phone me but as I was on the phone to Jenny she couldn’t get through to me and was worried I didn’t know. She was a Michael fan too. We don’t have internet in the flat, this was before the days of laptops and smart phones, so we had to wait for the 10 pm BBC news on TV.

The 10 pm news just repeated what we already knew. My flatmate and I just sat there in shock, trying to process what we were seeing on TV.  After the news we sat there in tears, so isolated  just the two of us, our world crashing down, so scared and worried about Michael, where was he, what was happening in California.

That night I couldn’t sleep. I left the TV on and every hour throughout the night waited for any new information.

I think I got about 3 hours sleep, maybe less. The next day I had to go into work and pretend nothing was wrong. No one at work knew I was a fan. All day long, I had to go about my work, while inside my heart was breaking. How could this be happening again, I was sick with worry but I couldn’t show it.

This went on for 4 days. My work schedule meant I couldn’t check fan sites, as the internet cafe was closed by the time I finished work. Sick with worry I didn’t sleep or eat for nearly a week. All I had was text updates from my friends and the TV news reports. Finally the TV stations started reporting that Michael had been found and when the images of him being led into the building were shown, I broke down.

I knew then that it was not over and the worst was yet to come….




The PR fiasco that was The World Music Awards London 2006

I was also there at The World Music Award at Earls Court London 15 November 2006

1. Michael was NEVER going to perform. This was a story put out to the media in the days before the award show by Raymone Bain. It is HER which is to blame for the huge PR fiasco. The day before the award show fans asked Michael about performing and he had no idea what they were talking about. He denied that he was performing and said he was just collecting the awards.

This circulated in the fan community, both online on the forums and among those of us at the hotel. We were not expecting Michael to perform and we were disgusted by the news reports the next day from so called fans disappointed about Michael’s lack of performance.

2. The Booing Story & where it came from
It was actually Rihanna who was booed.The stage was divided in two parts, the awards podium and the performance area. Michael was presented with the Diamond Award and The Guinness Book of Records Award at the podium on the right side of the stage. He had finished his speech but was still on at the podium when Rihanna came onto the performance side of the stage and the opening bars of music from her song Unfaithful started. THAT’S when the booing started. Michael was still waving and interacting with the crowd but Rihanna had started her performance. The boos and jeers rang out through the arena. No one wanted to see Rihanna, everyone just wanted to see Michael.

After Rihannas performance, that was when the choir came onto the stage and Michael came back out. I was front row and saw a microphone being shoved into his hands and him being told go and sang. He was very confused and just went along with things. He had no idea what he was meant to do. He just went along with the momentum in the crowd. He walked across the stage right in front of me and I saw him ask the stage manager at the side of the stage, “do I go back this way” as he pointed to the curtain at the very end of the performance area.

I must admit, it was brutal that night. EVERYONE got booed, During every performance everyone was screaming for Michael, during every award presentation everyone was screaming for Michael. It was Michaels night and everyone knew it. We didnt care about any other performer or any other award recipient. You have to understand that Michael had been in London for 2 days at this stage. There were about 400 fans at the hotel. He had been out and about in London, and playing peek a boo at the hotel with us. Fans had flown to London from America and all over Europe. It was classic Michael mania and the award show people had no clue how to handle it.

Margaret Maldonado’s book JACKSON FAMILY VALUES part 2

My summery continued

After Hazel filed for divorce and moved out, Jermaine moved in with Margaret. Margaret starts to realize that Jermaine is not very good with money. She falls more and more into the role of Jermaine’s manager. She finds that Jermaine owes the Inland Revenue a huge tax bill and starts sorting out his finances, hiring new accounts and firing the previous ones.  Not only did Jermaine owe the Inland Revenue, he also had alot of debts from his tour and album. He thought he would generate on his solo tour the same huge money that Victory brought in, so he had mortgaged his house to finance the tour. When this didn’t happen he was left with huge debts.

Jermaine thought he was a big star who could earn huge amounts from record sales and concerts but everyone  including his agents knew he wasn’t. Jermaine’s lifestyle far exceed his income and as a result his finances were a mess.

As part of sorting out Jermaine’s finances, Margaret downsized their rented home, getting a small 2 bed-roomed condo in a complex opposite Randy’s large extravagant home on Wiltshire Boulevard.

Jermaine was now recording his second album for Arista and also working with Tito, Jackie and Randy on what would become 2300 Jackson Street which was being recorded at Tito’s home in Encino.

Margaret slowly starts to meet the rest of the Jackson family. Her first meeting with Katherine at Hayvenhurst does not go well and it takes many months for Katherine to accept Margaret.

With Margaret now looking after Jermaine’s finances she sees that Jermaine can’t keep up with child support payments to Hazel . Hazel starts to come after Jermaine for the money, her father Berry Gordy hires attorneys to force Jermaine to pay child support.

Margaret ends up dealing with Hazel, sorting out the payments and makes sure she gets regular cheque’s.

In October 1987 an earthquake hits LA. Jermaine and Margaret are living in a high rise condo complex and don’t feel safe after the earthquake. By now Katherine has warmed to Margaret and even though they are not married, Katherine allows Jermaine to move back into Hayvenhurst with Margaret and the two children.They move in early 1988. Margaret and the boys use Janet’s old room.

Margaret and boys settle in at Hayvenhurst, which is a big step up from the small condo they had previously lived in.

(the next few pages describe the house routine, the layout of the house, the animals etc. Michael and Latoya are still living there)

About 3 weeks after Margaret moves in an incident with Jack Gordon and Joseph occurs. They had been talking in a room when it escalates to an argument which Katherine goes to diffuse. While the argument continues Margaret comforts Latoya who starts talking about Katherine. “you don’t know this family Margaret. My mother is behind all of this, You think she is just the sweetest woman, but she is the one who is pushing Josephs buttons” . The argument eventually ends but after this Latoya starts to confide in Margaret.

Latoya said she had spent months on the road with her father, performing shows with two other girls. Whichever one he was sleeping with is the one who got the best treatment, got the best room and sang the leads. Latoya told Katherine about this but Katherine did nothing.

These were Latoya’s last days Hayvenhurst, she moved to New York with Jack Gordon.

“You Can’t Win” From The Wiz Sung by Michael Jackson

You can’t win, you can’t break even
And you can’t get out of the game

Margaret Maldonado’s book JACKSON FAMILY VALUES part 1

Just started reading Margaret Maldonado’s book JACKSON FAMILY VALUES. The first chapter tells her background story, how she came from a dysfunctional family in LA, brought up by her stepdad, her troubled teenage years when she became addicted to drugs, her many overdoses and finally her time in rehab.

It was after she came out of rehab in January 1986 aged 21 that she met Jermaine in a restaurant. She was with her friend when Jermaine saw her, came over to their table and introduced himself. She was at a venerable stage in her life, after years of hard partying & drug abuse, just out of rehab & Jermaine swept her off her feet.

A few months into their courtship she found out that Jermaine was married & confronted him. He gave her the typical cheating man story, that they were separated & getting a divorce, which she found out later was a lie.

page 17 In May 1986 she finds out she is pregnant. at last my life was on track, I had put drugs behind me & found a gentle stable man with whom I could raise a family.

page 18 Jermaine seemed delighted with my pregnancy & went around telling everyone. We had been togther for 7 months & his legal separtion from his wife was well under way or so I thought. page 19 she finds out thats not the case, Jermaine is still very much with his wife & has been lying to her. At 8 months pregnant she confronts him with his lies,tells him to back to his wife. He insists the marriage is over&he will divorce his wife. He says he will take care of her & the baby & sets her up in a condo in Pacific Palisades near his house in where he lives with his wife.

She goes into labour on Christmas Day, goes to the hospital with her mother, while Jermaine is at home with his wife & other kids. On Christmas Day Jermaine made no secret of what was going on, getting regular phone updates from the hospital.

page 25 as the new year progressed Jermaine came to the condo more &more to see his son. Hazel , Jermaines wife was now pregnant. Maraget knew that other members of the Jackson family would be there but she didnt know Hazel, Jermaines wife would be there. Jermaine brings Margaret’s baby to the restaurant & proudly poses for the cameras with his son. The next week the photos appear in the media with an article how Jermaine shows up to a family event with his lovechild accompanied by his 8 months pregnant wife!!! Jermaine at a family event, has his 8 months pregnant wife looking after his mistresses child!!! When Margaret confronts Jermaine about it, he blames Carol , Marlons wife for selling the photos to the media!!

page 27 not long after that Jermaine wants to bring the baby to a family softball game, Margaret agrees. as the day goes by, she gets worried that Jermaine is gone longer than the agreed time. She gets worried about her baby so decides to phone Jermaines house. Hazel Jermaines wife answers & says the baby is with HER. Jermaine didnt bring the baby to the softball game, his wife was looking after the baby at their house!!! Margaret & Hazel start talking & it turns out that Jermaine has convinced his wife that Margaret didnt want to keep the baby.  Jermaine had talked Hazel into raising the child & they had bought new baby things in preparation for this!! Jermaine wanted Hazel to adopt Margaret’s baby & raise it as her own. Hazel was 9 months pregnant & due to give birth at any day!! this time when Margaret confronted Jermaine, he blamed the older children, saying how happy they were having a baby in the house!!

Hazels baby is born on 17 March 1987 but Jermaine spend more time with Margaret & her baby. Now that he has two baby sons, Jermaine often brings Hazels baby to Margarets house & brings Margarets baby to his home with Hazel. Jermaine never told the two women where he brought the babies but Hazel & Margaret used different brands of diapers so it was obvious what was happening & where the babies were spending time.

Hazel eventually has enough of the whole situation and files for divorce in October 1987

My Review of Latoya’s 1991 Book

After reading Katherine’s book I decided to re read Latoya’s book, her original book from 1991. Reading both books you get to see a complete picture of Katherine & Joseph & how they raised their family. The carefully constructed facade they put out to the world since 2009 is far far from the truth. Latoya’s book shows how situations can be seen differently depending on whether the person is a child or adult. For example  the beatings and Joe’s strict rules. Katherine didn’t seen anything wrong, she believed in corporal punishment whereas we all know Michael and others were traumatized & it deeply affected them.

I haven’t read these books for at least 10 years, its amazing how the Jackson’s have completely installed the happy family facade since 2009. How they want everyone to think they are such a close family, that Katherine is a quiet timid woman when the reality is very different. after reading both Katherine’s & Latoya’s books, I seriously wonder how anyone can question the real motives of the recent civil case, it glaring obvious that what Katherine wants, Katherine gets & the family listen & obey her without question.

page 62 ,during a trip to Africa,Joesph tells the boys they have a new baby sister,born around the same time as Tito’s son Taj. Joseph was all proud of his new family, the boys were sickened & told Latoya when they came home. Katherine eventually found out a few months later,her way of dealing with it was to ignore it& to forbid anyone to acknowledge the child. Joesph moved the child & her mother into a house near Havenyhurst & was often see out & about holding hands with his mistress.

page 97 Latoya describes how the 4 wives, Hazel, Carol, Dee Dee & Enid did not like her. there were always calling family meetings complaining about her. Around this time Michael was writing songs for THRILLER. One day he called Latoya aside to hear a song he was working on called WANNA BE STARTING SOMETHING.

page 98 Latoya writes the song is not about Michael.Its about the friction between her & her sisters in law. she quotes the lyrics someones always trying to start my baby crying,talking,squealing lying,you just wanna be starting somethin. basically the 4 wives did not like how close Latoya was with her brothers. Michael wrote this song for Latoya.

page 100 Latoya talks about Jackie’s affair with Paula Abdul which started around 1980 when she was a Lakers cheerleader. She would go to Havenhuryst to meet Jackie. The affair lasted until around 1988 when Paula’s singing career took off. Paula’s affair with Jackie was no secret, everyone from those living in Haveynhurst, to Jackie’s wife Enid & his children knew Paula.

what a surprise Jermaine wasn’t supportive of Thriller. page 129 During a family meeting Jermaine remarked sourly he is wasting all this time on Thriller and its not going to do anything. Jermaine says I think this album sounds like a bunch of junk. Page 130 Jermaine’s negative comments were not confined to the family, he also made his feelings know in the press. At the same time Jermaine was discrediting Michael publicly over Thriller, he was trying to get the brothers to reunite and tour again.

I think I might have stumbled across the origins of Jackson’s not liking Branca & all the anti Estate stuff. Katherine & Joseph have inherent issues with outsiders & over the years have displayed a hatred of whites & Jews. This was very much in evidence round the planning stages of Victory tour, when Katherine & Joseph only wanted to work with black promoters. During this time Michael had brought in John Branca as part of his team which Joseph did not like Branca was the one looking after Michael’s interests during VICTORY, advising Michael AGAINST all the dodgy decisions. it is not surprising therefore, that Katherine & Joseph harbor a long standing negative view of Branca & have created all this anti Estate conspiracy stuff, which has filtered into the fan community. It is Katherine & Josephs deep distrust & racist views of white outsiders interfering in family business which caused all the fake will controversy & started all the anti Estate negativity.

Overall this book tells the story of child who grows up in a very strict and controlling family who through fear and family obligation goes into the family business. The story is of a child growing into an adult, and breaking away from something which they did not agree with. Remember though, this book was written BEFORE the 1993 allegations. This book details Latoya’s very close connection and love for her brother Michael, which makes what she did in the years after even more disgraceful.

Unfortunately Latoya in trying to escape and become her true self made the ultimate mistake. In her desperation to seek a world far removed from the controlling and manipulation of the Jackson family, she ended up  in the exact same with Jack Gordon….

Katherine Jacksons 1990 book THE JACKSONS MY FAMILY

only read the first few chapters at the moment but already some very interesting quotes.

page 40 ” I favour corporal punishment, even for a 15 year old”

page 55 ” after J5 won their first local talent show & got their first press write up, Joesph said these boys are going to take me out of the steel mill

page 22 ” quote from Rebbie talking about Jermaine as a child “If Jermaine happened to be the one at fault, he would put it on everybody else. Thats when you know he is the culprit ”

The first 5 chapters of the book, up until the Motown audition,all focus on escape from Gary. Katherine & Joseph tried to escape from Gary in 1960, but their attempt to go to Seattle didnt work out. So once they saw the boys performing in the house, they focused on using their childrens talents to escape from Gary instead. and that folks is how the lifelong obligation for Michael to provide for the family began. and where the current fight for Michaels money stems from.

page 15, Katherine talking about when she first met Joseph, he was 20, she was 19.. It was Jospehs dream to move to California, when he & Katherine first met he told her this was what he wanted. ” like me he, he envisioned a new life one day in California, Kate one day I’m going to take you there.

reading this book, the overwhelming feeling I get is that Katherine & Joseph wanted to get to California by any means possible. and that when they did, they fell in love with the celeb lifestyle. They were living their dream , using their kids to make it happen.

page 71 Katherine describing arriving in LA for the first time in 1970 ” driving along Sunset Strip had been a lifelong dream”

page 72 Katherine describing arriving in LA for the first time I cant believe I am in California I thought,finally I made it,finally I am here

page 85 Katherine details what she & Joseph did with the money they received from Motown around 1970 ” so what did we do with our money? The majority of the income went into the boys saving accounts, some of it went into ” the pot” a fund from which the boys could draw on when they got married and wanted to put a down-payment on a house, The rest of it went to Joe as their manager & to themselves as a weekly allowance. Regarding the pooled funds, Joe & I didn’t want the money to just sit around in savings accounts, so we made a few investments on behalf of the family. One of our investments was in apartment houses We bought x2 212 unit complexes in West Covina & in Tarzana x1 212 unit complex & x1 196 unit complexes. When we sold them in the late 70s we realized a handsome profit”

bet you didnt know Katherine was part of the Victory Tour preparations meeting with attorneys & helping choose promoters, details page 140 Joe brought her in to help him as co promoter, to make sure things went HIS way. in addition to Don King & Joseph, part of Katherines deal with the attorneys for Victory tour was that SHE would get a % of the tour profits.

page 163 ” I first encouraged my daughters to pursue a showbusiness career in the early 70’s,

Page 163 I didnt like the idea of some of my kids making alot of money while the others were not making any

page 164 During Janets stint on GOOD TIMES, Joe & I kept thinking about how we could help launch entertainment careers for Latoya & Rebbie

page 165 in 1980 Latoya recorded her first album, it was Joes idea, she was reluctant but he persuaded her

now things are getting interesting,you will never guess who was responsible for introducing Janet to Jam & Lewis & help relaunch her career.old family friend John Mclain, A &M Records new vicepresident for A& R, the same guy who Michael chose to be his Estate executor!!! very interesting how Katherine & the family has known him since approx 1985 but turned against him now he is in charge of Michaels money!! he was trusted enough back in 85 to relaunch Janet’s career but when its Michael’s money he is looking after, the will is fake & they want him & his partner removed as Estate executors!!

page 178 after seeing Michael’s BAD tour concerts in Japan, Frank Dileo asked what did Katherine think of the show. “I thought it was good, Michael is always great I replied but it would have been a better show with the brothers”

she didn’t like the fact that Michael was against taking the VICTORY tour to Japan, but on his solo tour he did. she says” I was watching the identical show plus a couple of songs from BAD that Michael had performed with his brothers 3 years before. Victory had so much that Michael didn’t like,BAD was his chance to do things his way, but of course Katherine only saw the collective not the individual.

oh wow,so get this Bianca the maid,mother of the Michael tickled me boy Jason ,originally worked at Encino & moved to Neverland when Michael bought it.

page 201 in 1988 “While I enjoyed listening to their records, I hadn’t been thrilled to see the brothers spending so much of their energy on their solo work Your focus should be on keeping THE JACKSONS going, you are so much stronger as a group, than as solo artists ”

so after reading the book, it is very obvious Katherine is & always has been the force behind the family. She may put across a frail timid shy persona but behind the scenes she is very controlling, making sure everyone follows the family line. From investment decisions when the money started coming in in the early 70’s, to being a co promoter for Victory, to making sure her daughters followed a career in show business like their brothers and so much more. Make no mistake this is a lady who knows what she is doing and is not afraid to make hard decisions.

The Boy Who Cried Wolf


letter B

There once was a shepherd boy who was bored as he sat on the hillside watching the village sheep. To amuse himself he took a great breath and sang out, “Wolf! Wolf! The Wolf is chasing the sheep!”

The villagers came running up the hill to help the boy drive the wolf away. But when they arrived at the top of the hill, they found no wolf. The boy laughed at the sight of their angry faces.

“Don’t cry ‘wolf’, shepherd boy,” said the villagers, “when there’s no wolf!” They went grumbling back down the hill.

Later, the boy sang out again, “Wolf! Wolf! The wolf is chasing the sheep!” To his naughty delight, he watched the villagers run up the hill to help him drive the wolf away.

When the villagers saw no wolf they sternly said, “Save your frightened song for when there is really something wrong! Don’t cry ‘wolf’ when there is NO wolf!”

But the boy just grinned and watched them go grumbling down the hill once more.

Later, he saw a REAL wolf prowling about his flock. Alarmed, he leaped to his feet and sang out as loudly as he could, “Wolf! Wolf!”

But the villagers thought he was trying to fool them again, and so they didn’t come.

At sunset, everyone wondered why the shepherd boy hadn’t returned to the village with their sheep. They went up the hill to find the boy. They found him weeping.

“There really was a wolf here! The flock has scattered! I cried out, “Wolf!” Why didn’t you come?”

An old man tried to comfort the boy as they walked back to the village.

“We’ll help you look for the lost sheep in the morning,” he said, putting his arm around the youth, “Nobody believes a liar…even when he is telling the truth!”

steady laughin’, while surfacing


Now I’m just wondering why you think
that you can get to me with anything
seems like you’d know by now
When and how I get down
And with all that I’ve been through,
I’m still around

Don’t you ever make no mistake
Baby I’ve got what it takes
And there’s no way you’ll ever get to me
Why can’t you see that you’ll never ever hurt me
’cause I wont let it be, see I’m too much for you baby

You can’t believe it, you can’t conceive it
and you can’t touch me, ’cause I’m untouchable
and I know you hate it, and you can’t take it
You’ll never break me, ’cause I’m unbreakable

Now you can’t stop me even thought you think
that if you block me, you’ve done your thing
and when you bury me underneath all your pain
I´m steady laughin’, while surfacing

Don’t you ever make no mistake
baby I’ve got what it takes
and there’s no way you’ll ever get to me
Why can’t you see that you’ll never ever hurt me
’cause I wont let it be, see I’m too much for you baby


You’re fearing me, ‘cause you know I’m a beast
Watching you when you sleep, when you’re in bed
I’m underneath
You’re trapped in halls, and my face is the walls
I’m the floor when you fall, and when you scream it’s ‘cause of me
I’m the living dead, the dark thoughts in your head
I heard just what you said
That’s why you’ve got to be threatened by me

You should be watching me, you should feel threatened
While you sleep, while you creep, you should be threatened
Every time your lady speaks she speaks of me, threatened
Half of me you’ll never be, so you should feel threatened by me

You think you’re by yourself, but it’s my touch you felt
I’m not a ghost from Hell, but I’ve got a spell on you
Your worst nightmare, it’s me, I’m everywhere
In one blink I’ll disappear, and then I’ll come back to haunt you
I’m telling you, when you lie under a tomb
I’m the one watching you
That’s why you got to be threatened by me


The unknown monster is about to embark
From a far corner, out of the dark
A nightmare, that’s the case
Never Neverland, that’s the place
This particular monster can read minds
Be in two places at the same time
This is judgement night, execution, slaughter
The devil, ghosts, this monster is torture
You can be sure of one thing, that’s fate
A human presence that you feel is strange
A monster that you can see disappear
A monster, the worst thing to fear.

Makes Me Wanna Scream

I’ve kept my silence about recent events hoping things and certain people would remove themselves from our fan community now that the Jackson V AEG court case has finished. Seems I was wrong.

I am absolutely horrified and disgusted by the actions of Taaj . Since 2009 she has caused nothing but destruction , confusion, spread false information and so much more. There are numerous blogs, including here written about her disgusting actions over the last few years. This time though, she has crossed a line and her actions MUST be denounced and people need to once and for all cut all ties with this despicable woman.

Her latest stunts are focused on posting private information about people she does not like. Many fans, including myself do not use their real name in the Michael Jackson fan community. This is for many reasons. For me I keep my real life and the Michael Jackson world separate. In this digital age, people are so used to posting everything about themselves online that they don’t realize the consequences. Employers routinely GOOGLE new employees. What you post online can make the difference between you getting a job and not, or losing clients. In the worst case, posting private personal information like a real name or address or other personal information could result in a rape, mugging, or even child abduction.

What Taaj  is doing is very very wrong. Sure we have all had people online who don’t agree with our views. We have all had people who don’t like us. But the difference is online disagreements stay online. We block people, we don’t go to certain websites, we take steps to remove those people from our online world.

Taaj  is crossing a very dangerous line. She is maliciously digging to find specific peoples personal information with the sole purpose of using it against them to remove them from the fan community. She takes pleasure in exposing those she does not like, bullying people into silence. When Michael was alive fans were fans, yes there were disagreements & arguments but until Taaj  appeared fans did not report each other to the police, fans did not get restraining orders against each other, fans did not take each other to court!! Seriously people come on, when did it become acceptable to maliciously uncover and make public peoples real life private information all because you don’t like their views and opinions???

Where is Michael Jackson in all this?? In the years since 2009 I have never seen Taaj  have a conversation about Michael Jackson, his music, his his concerts, the gold pants, his hair, his eyes, rare songs, favorite memory, favorite song, favorite era and all the thousands of topics real genuine Michael Jackson fans talk about.

Take back OUR fan community. Stand as one and bring MICHAEL JACKSON back into this fan community. No more “justice fighters” no more “justice seekers” no more whatever the hell these people call themselves, no more people thinking they are legal experts,no more of crap that that blighted our community since June 25 2009

Michael called us his fans, time and again he spoke of his love for his fans. Lets remember that,& get back to what we once were, people from all over the world with a simple love for one man. The man, the music, the person, the concerts, the humanitarian, the magical being who was Michael Jackson.
