So like most Michael Jackson fans, I’m pretty heartbroken today. For those who don’t know, another person has come out this week claiming that Michael sexually assaulted him as a child. The accuser is a guy named Wade Robinson; a kid that apparently won some contest in the 80s and got to meet Michael. From what I understand, Michael took him under his wing, and now he’s a successful choreographer. What trips me out even more is that this kid testified for Michael in his last case. My main question is: why now? Not only is the statute of limitations on that long expired, but the man’s been dead for almost 4 years.
I don’t really know what to think anymore about it. No one wants to think anything bad about someone they looked up to growing up, but this is now case number 3. It stands to mention though that all of these kids were people whose families Michael was taking care of financially for a number of years. Seems the poor man may never be able to truly rest in peace.

Now this is epic.
Freakin Tumblr geniuses.
best gif ever
but NO ONE would make stories like this national news right ?
This picture is heart breaking. MJ was on Tour, and this is when he was first told about the first child abuse allegations. He was asked if he was okay to go on stage. He insisted, saying he didn’t want to let his fans down. When he took off his glasses this is what was seen.
I don’t even know who that guy is…
Omfg crying of laughter gurl bye
you don’t understand i love adam levine and maroon 5 so much but no just no non ono
lol who are these people trying to crown other people the “New King Of Pop”? Adam Levine is fantastic but naaaah son….
Why is pop culture so insistent on trying to crown a new King of Pop? I mean, Usher and Justin Timberlake were one thing, but this? Just leave well enough alone white people
They Call him “Mr. Jackson.”
Dressed in black, a confident, mature Michael Jackson directs his staff, guides his child and peers over the reading glasses perched on the edge of his finely chiseled nose. Reading glasses? Yes, Michael Jackson, now a twice-divorced father of three, will be 50 next year, more than a quarter century after the boyish impresario moonwalked onto the world stage. And even though he still has the trim body and the dancer moves of the Michael Jackson of Thriller days, those glasses confirm the passage of time.
In his first U.S. magazine interview and cover story in a decade, the King of Pop sat down in a New York City hotel suite with EBONY magazine and offered a rare look into the life of an icon. The commander of a multimillion-dollar empire and arguably the single-most talented entertainer of a generation has not spoken since his 2005 trial and acquittal. But today, he reflects on Thriller and the struggles that put him on the world stage, and wonders aloud, where did the time go?
This is my all time favorite interview of his. It’s clear from reading it that at this point in his life, age had given him both wisdom and confidence. It’s also one of the only interviews of his that wasn’t focused on the tabloids and the headlines, but his art. If you want to really dig into his creative process during the Thriller sessions, then I highly suggest reading this; it’s like getting to sit in on a master class.
