Michael Jackson and the Safechucks on a Trip To Hawaii

August 29, 2015

FOREVER YOUNG

August 29th is Michael Jackson’s birthday and today he could have turned fifty seven. Already fifty seven!

What a strange feeling it is – all of us are getting older and he remains young. Though we would have very much preferred it to be different and him staying along and aging together with all the rest of us.

Imagine him being fifty seven and what a thrill it could have been. He would have still been very thin but strong and tough – of course only in case he was spared by the media and was able to sleep. Sleep and leaving him alone was all he needed to make him happy and enjoy the comfort of his private life.

If they hadn’t run him into the ground he would have devoted his life to his kids and would have surely involved himself in more affairs with women. And he would have probably even married again and had more children. And how much fantastic music he could have created! And there would have surely been no cases like Robson and Safechuck – they would have simply not dared to lie looking him in the eye.

But none of it will ever happen. Michael gave us his very best and burned across the sky as if a comet. And here we are – lost, bewildered and still not understanding why so big an injustice could take place. And why there seems to be no end to it considering the tons of mud thrown at him by those who contributed to his death and the lies of his haters who are now doubling their efforts to portray him the person he never was.

And what seems to be especially wrong is that the public still doesn’t know the true Michael and is still feeding on misconceptions about him.

First the media ridiculed him for everything he did and didn’t do progressing from a mere “eccentric” to “weird” and then to an outrageous “freak”, and never apologized for it and pretended that it was nothing much, and now on top of the old lies they are piling up new ones – with the help of someone who is hoping to profit from the success of Michael’s estate and turn his money into an endless source of their income.

And with every new wave of hatred towards MJ his real self is getting dimmer and dimmer and turns into a flicker that risks to completely fade away and never to be known to people at all.

Guys, this won’t do. It is simply a must to restore the truth about Michael Jackson and the real man he was.

‘UNIMPORTANT’ DETAIL 

A recent occurrence that took place in the comments section to this post about Jimmy Safechuck’s allegations where we discussed with Alan Light (who made photos of MJ and Safechuck in Hawaii) the reason why they were there at all, showed to me once again that there is simply no such thing as an “unimportant detail” in establishing the truth about Michael Jackson.

Every detail matters. One small omission of fact and a false assumption arising from it can take us in the wrong direction and make even Michael’s supporters jump to wrong conclusions about him. With an omission here and there his detractors don’t even need to tell many lies about Michael – it is just enough to drop a hint, and people’s own imagination will do the rest of the job.

In the Hawaii case the false assumption made even by Michael’s supporters was that it was Michael Jackson who took Jimmy Safechuck on a short trip to Hawaii in February 1988 where MJ, the boy and his mother stayed together at the Kamala Hilton hotel (in separate rooms though).

However the truth of the matter is that it wasn’t Michael Jackson who took Jimmy Safechuck there – both of them were invited there by Pepsi who naturally covered all the expenses on the visit too.

Pepsi was holding a convention in Hawaii that featured a commercial where MJ and Safechuck had taken part in a year earlier, so it was a sort of a business trip for each of them.

In this new context all Safechuck’s talk that he was invited there by Michael and he covered the Safechucks’ travel and accommodation expenses turns into a flat lie. It was an official visit organized by Pepsi, so it was naturally not Michael who paid for the Safechucks’ visit.

The most Michael could do was reminding Pepsi not forget to invite the other co-star of the commercial or passing on their invitation to the family, but as regards the expenses since Michael didn’t pay for his own visit to their convention, there was absolutely no reason why he should pay for their other two guests.

In the context of this discovery Safechuck’s statements in his lawsuit that he was taken by “a limousine to the hotel” and “enjoyed a V.I.P. treatment throughout the visit” no longer produce the impression they were intended for.  Michael could offer Safechuck and his mother to pick them from the airport by his limousine so that the organizers didn’t have to arrange for them a separate car, but it conveys to us nothing but the fact that despite all his fame Michael was a very polite and considerate young gentleman.

If you read the respective point of Safechuck’s lawsuit you will see how well structured and sly his lie is – it starts with an age difference between the boy and MJ (as if it matters) and ends with the limousine and VIP treatment all of which is meant to produce the impression that Safechuck was Michael’s  “special friend”,  though there was nothing special about him and his visit there, and it was nothing but a usual business trip.

In 1988, when Plaintiff was 10 years old and Decedent was 29-30 years old, Decedent invited Plaintiff to a convention in Hawaii at which the Pepsi commercial they had both appeared in was being featured. The Plaintiff attended the Pepsi convention with Decedent and appeared with him on stage. Decedent and/or Does 2 and 3 made all the arrangements and paid all the expenses for Plaintiff and his mother to fly first class to Hawaii, travel by limousine to the Kahala Hilton Hotel and for all of their accommodations and expenses during the convention. Plaintiff and his mother travelled together with Decedent’s entourage. Plaintiff stayed with his mother in her hotel room on that trip. 

See how easy a business trip organized by others and Michael’s politeness turned into a point in a lawsuit which treats the rest of the story in the same way and twists even the most trivial matters into something sinister?

ALAN LIGHT ABOUT HIS CHANCE ENCOUNTERS WITH MJ

Alan Light who was at the Kamala Hilton hotel with his two friends and made pictures of MJ, Jimmy Safechuck and the woman who was not identified at that moment, described the seven times he met Michael within so short period of time (his full comments are provided in the post about Safechuck):

“Hi, my name is Alan Light and I took the many photos of Michael Jackson and Jimmy Safechuck at the Kahala Hilton Hotel in early February, 1988, that are posted in my flickr account.

Michael and the boy I later learned was Jimmy were staying at the same hotel I was, and I saw them together all around the hotel 7 different times over 3 days. It was funny because, for a supposed recluse, every time my friends and I turned around there he was again. They were inseparable around the hotel – running after each other, playing tag, making soap bubbles on a room’s balcony, walking closely together on the hotel’s small private beach, looking at the hotel’s dolphins, turtles and penguins together. Another time I saw them together in the hotel lobby.

The still-unidentified woman in white was with Michael & Jimmy on 2 of those 7 different occasions I saw them – once on the balcony when they were making soap bubbles, and the other time out during the daytime around the pool area talking to fans who had spotted Michael, where you say Jimmy looks bored.

Jimmy may look bored in those daytime photos but at no other time in the trip did he look bored with Michael when I saw them together.

I think Jimmy just knew to back off when Michael was spotted by fans, because that’s how he behaved when I first spotted Michael and asked for a photo with him.

When I asked Michael if he would pose for a picture with me he agreed, but said we should move farther away from the hotel so as not to attract attention.

As Michael and I stood side by side ready to take the picture it occurred to me that it would be polite to ask Michael’s young friend to join us. I didn’t want the boy to feel left out, shoved aside by a fan only interested in the star. The boy seemed happy to be invited to join us the photo. I only found out Jimmy’s name later, and that he was the boy appearing in a Pepsi TV commercial with Michael at the time.”

Well, now we know why Safechuck looks so terribly happy around Michael and why he is even embracing him in this picture. Each time fans were taking pictures of Michael he had to stand aside, but this time he was allowed to join him and he ran in with a look of happiness on his face.

So the scene we are witnessing here was actually not a routine one –  on the contrary, it was an exception to the rule though Michael’s haters will naturally tell you something different.

Alan Light continues:

“Michael was extremely sweet and nice to us, and we talked to him for about 15 minutes. He asked us where we were from and told us he was going to be touring in Europe later in the year. When I saw him and asked for this picture he said “They’d be mad if they knew I was out here” which I assumed meant he had sneaked out of the hotel away from his security and that they would be upset if they knew he had ventured out alone. But there was nobody out around the pool and animal area but he and Jimmy, myself and my friend’s Jack and Don. Just the 5 of us, so he was in no danger of getting mobbed. Still, he didn’t want to attract attention.

Later as we were talking a young girl and her parents wandered by, they saw Michael and got his autograph and their own photo with him. All I know is that they were the Butler family and from England.

I never personally saw any suspicious behavior between them, just a lot of playfulness. Michael was acting more like someone Jimmy’s age, 10, than a 29 1/2 year old man. They obviously connected on a childlike playful level.”

When our Susannerb wondered if Alan could bring together the thoughts he had at the time about the boy and the allegations now in his court documents, he said:

“I wish I could tie what I saw to the persistent allegations, but just seeing them in public together several times over a period of three days unfortunately doesn’t give me any special insight into what may have happened when they were behind closed doors, or what ulterior motives Michael may have had in mind regarding Jimmy. As I said in my original comment, I never personally saw any suspicious behavior between them.

I wish I had more to say about the allegations but really all I can say is what I saw, which was nothing suspicious or inappropriate, and that Michael Jackson was extremely nice to me and my friends. It was so surreal seeing this supposed recluse superstar seven different times during three days around the hotel. My friends and I got so used to it we’d just say “Well, there he is again.” When I had my camera with me I took pictures; other times I didn’t have my camera with me.”

Of course it was surreal to see the supposed recluse superstar seven times during those three days, because this notion is another of those misconceptions imposed on us by the ugly media – Michael was not that much of a recluse and liked very much to mix with ordinary people, only he had little chance to do so as on all other occasions except those three days in Hawaii he was mobbed.

And sorry for having to correct Alan Light here, but for this particular case he doesn’t need any special insight about “what happened when they were behind closed door”. It is Safechuck himself who says that nothing happened behind closed doors and even his lawsuit says that he simply came to know Michael Jackson much better during those three days.

The news that Michael was in Hawaii at a Pepsi convention was reported by a local newspaper and this is how Alan Light and his friends knew the reason why he was there, however the fact that the boy was another of Pepsi’s guests evidently escaped them (and the media). Alan is writing:

“The fact that I knew Michael was in Hawaii to make an appearance at a Pepsi bottlers convention was printed in this local newspaper article (in my hometown newspaper) at the time, from February 14, 1988. The writer says that Michael told me he was there for Pepsi, but I think that is the writer’s inaccurate conclusion. I don’t recall Michael telling me that, I remember reading in the Hawaii newspaper about the Pepsi convention and put two and two together – or perhaps the Hawaii newspaper article mentioned Michael made an appearance. 27 years later, my memory isn’t perfect on small details.

Here is the article about meeting Michael that was written up in my local Moline, Illinois newspaper on February 14, 1988. I put this article on flickr at the same time I put the MJ photos on flickr long ago:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/alan-light/2212371350/sizes/o/

You’re right that my original captions to the MJ photos did not say why he was in Hawaii, and I regret that lack of detail in my first hastily-written captions led some people to believe that Michael just took Jimmy there for a sort of personal vacation. So I added the information about the Pepsi convention a little while back.”

THE MEDIA COVERAGE

The article Alan Light is referring to is very interesting.

The article was published on February 14, 1988

The article was published on February 14, 1988

On the one hand it is a typical media product which starts with a standard enumeration of every rumor about MJ that existed at that moment but had nothing to do with the trip to Hawaii. The list included every so-called “eccentricity” of Michael Jackson which (even if true) look so innocent today that it is even funny.

In addition to that a couple of things were also made up – the author, for example, claimed that Michael wanted to add the bones of the deformed John Merrick to his “collection of deformed skeletons”.

First of all, Michael didn’t have a collection of deformed skeletons, and second, even if it had been true, how on earth did the reporter know the reason why Michael allegedly wanted to buy the bones of a disfigured man? What if he simply felt sorry for the fate of the poor human exhibit who had to show his deformities to earn his living and wanted to have him buried as any human being deserves it?

But fortunately, in addition to the standard (obligatory?) part of every Michael Jackson story, its other part contained the impressions of three Moliners  – Alan Light and his two friends, all from Moline, Illinois – of their chance encounters with Michael and this is where the article begins to get interesting because it is where we begin to see Michael the way he really was:

Moliners say Jackson is ‘very shy’

By Jackie Chesser

Staff writer

There’s always a lot of hype and mystery surrounding famous people. Some of it’s accurate, while some is just rumor or speculation. Often, it’s hard to separate fact from fiction.

Superstar Michael Jackson is one celebrity who’s as well known for his eccentricities as he is for his musical talent.

There’s the one about him spending several thousand dollars on a hyperbolic chamber because he believed sleeping in the chamber would retard the aging process.

And then there’s the one about his futile bid to buy the remains of John Merrick, England’s famed Elephant Man, to add to his collection of deformed skeletons.

Jackson also supposedly has had nearly a dozen plastic surgeries to streamline his figures and reportedly received shots to lighten his skin.

He’s also known as a recluse who rents amusement parts in the off-hours.

But, despite his reputation, Jackson actually is a very nice and friendly person, say three Moline men who stayed at the same hotel as the superstar on a recent trip to Hawaii.

Jack Viviani, Don Liggitt and Alan Light saw Jackson seven times while vacationing with friends at the Kahala Hilton. “He was a very shy person basically,” said Mr. Liggitt.

“He kept putting his hand to his mouth when he talked.”

When they first saw him, Jackson was walking along the beach with a youngster who turned out to be the 9-year-old co-star of one of Jackson’s Pepsi commercials.

One of the group jokingly remarked that the man looked like Michael Jackson. Another friend insisted it was the star. A closer look verified it.

“It was a funny sight because, while it was about 85 degrees and very hot in the sun on the beach, this guy was wearing a long-sleeved red shirt with long black pants and shiny black shoes, along with a cap and sunglasses,” said Mr. Light.

When Mr. Liggett told him how much he liked his music, Jackson took off his sunglasses and said “in a high voice, “Thank you very much”, said Mr. Light.

Hoping to see the superstar again and get a picture of him, the men began carrying a camera with them. They were in luck. Later that night they saw Jackson and the youngster watching the live turtles, penguins and dolphins the hotel keeps on display in its lagoon.

After discussing the animals with him, they asked if he minded posing for a picture. Jackson agreed, but asked that they go to a more secluded area so the camera flash wouldn’t attract attention.

He posed for several photos, volunteering to pose for an extra one after blinking because of the flash in one photo.

“Jackson was very soft-spoken and polite,” said Mr. Light.

When Mr. Liggitt commented that it must be difficult for someone of his fame to go out in public without being mobbed, Jackson said he was used to it, that it had been like that ever since he could remember. Then he said, “if they knew I was out here now, I would be in trouble,” apparently referring to his bodyguards.

While they were chatting, an English teenager approached Jackson and he posed for several photos for her. Then he gave her and her parents an address in England where they could get complimentary tickets to a concert he will do there later in the year.

Wanting Jackson’s autograph but not having any paper, Mr. Liggitt asked him to a sign a $20 bill. Jackson declined, saying he’d gotten in trouble once for signing money. The English teen gave Mr. Liggitt some paper for Jackson to sign.

When a crowd started to gather, Jackson said he had to leave and he and the youngster raced over the walking bridge that connects the hotel to the lagoon.

Later that night the Moliners saw Jackson again and he told them he was in Hawaii for a Pepsi bottlers’ convention.

Although they saw him four more times in the next two days, they didn’t talk to him again. “Several times we looked up from the beach or the pool area and saw him standing on the balcony of his room, “said Mr. Light.

One time while watching Jackson sign autographs, they chatted with his bodyguard, who told them Jackson had reserved an entire amusement park that evening for himself and his young commercial co-star.

The guard, a hotel employee, said he’d guarded many stars, but that Jackson was one of the nicest he’d met so far.

When asked how Jackson looked after all his plastic surgeries, Mr. Liggitt said, “He looks just like a woman. He’s beautiful. And he has a very high pitched voice.”

Well, the media rule is evidently to start with a rumor and close with it too, so if they open with “nearly a dozen of plastic surgeries” and “shots to whiten his skin”, they should end with it too.

The truth is of course different – now everyone knows of Michael’s vitiligo and by the way this was the reason why he was on the beach in a long-sleeved shirt and long pants. And as to his plastic surgery, let me remind you of Dr. Richard Strick, a doctor who was helping the prosecution in the 1993 case and had access to all Michael’s medical records, who said five years after the above story that Michael actually had little plastic surgery per se.

For those who don’t know it: besides the cleft in his chin he had a nose job twice – first after he broke his nose during a fall from the stage, and the second was when the breathing problems arising  from the first operation had to be corrected (and this is when it was combined with cosmetic surgery). All the rest done to Michael’s head and face was a medical necessity – at least until 1993/94. Due to a discoid lupus diagnosed already after the surgery healing of his scars was a problem – the scars would turn into keloids and spread over the burned area of his head and apparently the same was true for his nose.

However accurate information about Michael was never the media’s strongest point, so out of the whole article it is only the Moliners’ account which is worthy of attention.

And the first thing that strikes us when we listen to these people is that Michael was very normal – very polite, very shy, very sweet and soft-spoken, very patient with others and even obliging to them.

He would run about the hotel and have innocent fun, and if someone wanted to have a photo with him he would agree to pose for the picture again and again, and only asked to move to a place where the flashes would not attract attention, and if he blinked he volunteered for another shot, and he readily associated with everyone and even took care of complimentary tickets for a girl from England whom he had just met and saw for the first time in his life.

Imagine him giving complimentary tickets to Jordan Chandler on the first day they met – oh, they would have written volumes about it and it would have certainly become a separate point in the list of horrible accusations against MJ.

So the marvel of this article is that without really knowing it, it shows a huge contrast between the man Michael really was and the distorted picture standardly made of him by the media.

If the media portrayal of MJ had been true the three Moliners would not have been so amazed by the real Michael they met in Hawaii.

5The local newspaper in Hawaii was a little more accurate in telling their story about Michael Jackson  – they even reported that his visit there was arranged by Pepsi:

By Wayen Harada

HE’S BAD: Michael Jackson raced through Kahal Mall yesterday morning with a bodyguard and a youngster in town – and those who saw Mr. Bad (a.k.a. Mr. Thriller and Captain EO) weren’t certain if it was, indeed, the rock superstar.

Jackson whisked through Liberty House, among other stores, and Richard Natto (a Liberty House employee when he’s not performing with Toma/Natto) not only got Jackson’s autograph, but managed to chat with him too.

“Real nice guy – tall, and with big feet,” is the way Natto remembers the quickie exchange.

Jackson was clad in a red shirt, black jacket, black pants, and red socks – his hair with the pomade look, his face whitish with makeup.

He was believed to be ensconced at the Kahala Hilton – and his quiet visit was arranged by Pepsi Cola, for whom he does those commercials…

If the other Michael also was here – that’s Michael J. Fox, also a Pepsi spokesman – he certainly maintained a very low profile.

Judging by all we’ve read about that visit to Hawaii the weekend was a busy one – MJ and Safechuck attended the Pepsi convention, explored every corner of the hotel including its beach and animals in the lagoon, posed for the photos with other hotel visitors and gave autographs to them, went on a trip to town and whisked over some shops there, toured an amusement park and even took a helicopter to see the area.

So it is no wonder now that Safechuck says in his lawsuit that “during the convention, the Plaintiff spent a great deal of time with Decedent and got to know him well, and their friendship deepened”.

Of course they got to know each other well, only the very same statement is speaking of another thing too – before that trip Safechuck didn’t spend a lot of time with Michael and didn’t know him well, and this even despite all Safechuck’s claims that Michael allegedly stayed in the Safechucks’ home prior to that!

THE DATE

The above information is also helpful for determining the exact date of the Hawaii event which may come in handy one day.

The newspaper article about the Moliners is dated Sunday February 14 according to Alan Light and we know that the trip to Hawaii was on a weekend and lasted for 3 days. In 1988 the closest weekend to February 14 was February 12-14 (Friday-Sunday), and though of course the trip could take place a week prior to that I highly doubt that the excited Moliners would wait a whole week before sharing their story.

If the weekend really fell on February 12-14, then only four days remained for Michael to finish up his rehearsals in Florida and on February 23 he was already performing in Kansas City on the next leg of his “Bad” tour.

Somewhere in between those four Florida days Safechuck claims to have stayed with Michael in a separate house he rented there, but a closer look at his lawsuit does not in the least support this statement and let me once again repeat why.

When it comes to details Safechuck’s story becomes a disastrous mess – in Hawaii his mother allegedly didn’t allow him into Michael’s room even when the boy was taken ill, however a couple of days later she allegedly okayed his separate stay in Michael’s house, and several weeks after that, during their March visit to New York the mother allegedly said no again to a possibility of him staying with Michael.

The timeline is totally unnatural, but all these illogical yes-and-no in the alleged behavior of Jimmy’s mother made me really wonder about this woman – and this is where Alan Light helped us a lot.

THE WOMAN

I found on the Internet a couple of pictures of Jimmy Safechuck’s mother and Alan Light confirmed that she was the mystery woman he saw together with Michael Jackson and Jimmy Safechuck in Hawaii:

Jimmy Safechuck's mother and father

Jimmy Safechuck’s mother and father

  • “After 27 years we know who the mystery woman is. Yes, that is definitely the same woman. Thanks.”

So what was previously a guess is now an established fact – the woman in all the pictures below is Jimmy Safechuck’s mother.

In the first photo she is with her husband. Her maiden name is Anderson and this name has something to do with the company where her husband is working.

Jimmy Safechuck’s mother (right) together with Michael Jackson and Lisa Minelli in March 1988. New York

In the next photo she is photographed with Michael Jackson and Lisa Minelli. This is when all of them attended the Phantom of the Opera on Broadway in New York on March 11, 1988.

And according to Alan Light’s pictures the very same woman accompanied Jimmy and Michael Jackson on that weekend trip to Hawaii.

Don’t know about you but my impression is that she is a very confident, determined and a no-nonsense woman who knows what she wants, and is far from someone crazy and psychotic like, for example, Janet Arvizo was.

And this means that the inconsistent stories of her no–yes–no again behavior are simply a not too talented attempt of James Safechuck to invent another of his lies.

Hopefully all of the above restores another short fragment in the life of Michael Jackson. Another true fragment of his life.

Now we can be definite about it - this woman is Jimmy Safechuck's mother

Now we can be definite about it – this woman is Jimmy Safechuck’s mother

    Maybe Pepsi woud be curteous enogh to look into their Records.Maybe not,, as this trip dates far back in time.–And sorry to mispell a word 3 times. It was 3hrs past my bedtime.Anyway it seems more approprate that Pepsi invited the performers for advertising separately.But Helena is the Super detective in these kind of things.And one has to ask how important is it really. Though a lie has to be investigated.,that is her motto.

    Do we know when that picture of the Safechucks was taken?
    Is it a recent one?
    They don’t look too bothered to say the least. If I learned that my kid was molested for 4 years and is now suing his molester I sure wouldn’t smile lot.

    In this case how the heck can Safechuck claim that MJ paid for everything? What is HIS evidence of that?

    Whoops..! once you press submit you can no longer correct..It should be eccentics or eccentrticities. My mother sighed saying to me oh,why do you have to be so eccentric.
    I think of myself as pretty ordinary ,but sure making my own choices. Sure there is nobody like Michael Only many who learned to dance like him. This was but one of his talent and one aspect of his essence.

    I remain astounded by the hate festivals referred to by Nina in her comment August 30 2015.
    Michael was a human being who nevertheless also was a Messenger.For that he used his great musical talent and also what some may call execentricses.He needed attention to allow his messages to spread.And many have understood him. Still there are those out for money from him (now his estate after his tragic premature death)It seems to me an odd state of affairs, ie the fact that sc haters actually perpetuate the interest in Michael Jackson.Their lies call upon Helenas almost magic talents of getting to the kernel of truth of this mess. And as long as the haters go on so will the seekers of the essence of Michael and his messages.

    “Interesting, PanWise, how you lump things together. So to you being a ped…..le is the same as having flaws or being human? No, you mix things up deliberately or don’t get the point. Where did I say MJ had no flaws? I am aware of every flaw MJ had, and I even love his flaws because it makes him human. But the accusation of being a ped….ile is something completely different. And whatever you mean with a “bad person”, it is even something different than that. I very well can listen to the music or love the art of a person with flaws, because this even may be part of his creativity. But I cannot love the music of a ped….ile, it’s impossible because it is one of the worst crimes. And I am convinced that such a person would not be able to create wonderful, positive, uplifting music for the benefit of mankind, like MJ did. It’s not in their DNA.” -Susannerb

    “It is ridiculous to suggest that anyone who hates the sin but loves the sinner is somehow nefarious or immoral. The truth is, bad people do make good art and there is no way around it.” – Jamie T.

    The essence of the question is – HOW BAD should an artist be for his art to become totally unacceptable for others because they are simply unable to look into what he “created” or are totally unwilling to?

    For every stage of society the margin will be a different one, so all of it boils down to what is accepted in society and what is not.

    Now there is a social acceptance for adultery and homosexuality (though it has not always been so), and sometimes even murder – when it is self-defense or accident, for example. As soon as the society agrees that something is at least possible the art created by these people is no longer rejected either. And though their deeds may still give a certain coloring to the perception of their art, it does not make people reject it – because the phenomenon itself has begun to be accepted.

    So what if the painter was a drunkard? Many of them are. So what if the rock singer was a womanizer? In some way it only makes him more attractive. So what if the composer took drugs? Well, it might even give a new dimension to his music…

    When the society accepts something it doesn’t mean that it approves of it, but it means that it tolerates it and the deeds previously considered totally immoral now fall into the category of “things happen”.

    So when you say that an artist can be loved and appreciated even despite him being a child abuser the essence of your idea is actually making pedophilia acceptable for the society and making people tolerant to it.

    It is as simple as that.

    Will you be able to love the art of a cannibal? Or appreciate the music created by a sadist? If there ever comes a time when people “appreciate” it, it means that human civilization has come to an end and human beings ceased to be human. Because human beings will simply throw up at a mere thought of what could be the “inspiration” for this kind of art.

    Same with ped-lia which is overthrowing the principal law of nature and life in general – protection of the small, innocent and helpless and bringing them unharmed into an adult life.

    “Actually what is the evidence for this? We know Pepsi held a convention but where’s the proof they paid for the trip not just for MJ but for the Safechucks?” – Vulcan

    Vulcan, and how else could it be? Michael Jackson’s partner in an endorsement deal is arranging their convention and Michael was supposed to pay for visiting their business event? Why?

    If your business partner is inviting you to their event are you supposed to pay? Certainly not, and if it is true for ordinary people, why should it be different for Michael Jackson? Especially since it was Michael Jackson and especially since he so much suffered from Pepsi in an earlier commercial?

    And I am not even saying that the local newspaper article mentioned in the post says: “his quiet visit was arranged by Pepsi Cola, for whom he does those commercials”.

    What does “arrangement by Pepsi Cola” mean? That Pepsi just arranged a room at the hotel or that they paid for it too? Is there anyone here who thinks that Michael paid for his travel and accommodation if the visit was arranged by Pepsi? No one?

    And if he didn’t pay why does someone think that the Safechucks did? Even despite the difference in their status both were participants in a Pepsi commercial and were co-stars in it. And if they had a similar status Pepsi should have treated the Safechucks in the same way too. And even in the unlikely case they didn’t Michael would have surely seen to it that they did.

    Now if this is not enough let us recall how June Chandler and her children travelled with Michael:

    1 Q. Okay. Now, during your trips with Michael

    2 Jackson, do you recall the name “Sony” ever being

    3 mentioned?

    4 A. Yes.

    5 Q. And in what context was Sony mentioned?

    6 A. The gifts that Michael Jackson gave were

    7 from Sony. Sony recorders. We flew on the Sony

    8 jet. That’s what I remember.

    9 Q. And do you recall, around the time you were

    10 associating with Michael Jackson, that Michael

    11 Jackson had an endorsement deal with PepsiCo?

    12 A. Yes.

    11 Q. When did you go to Las Vegas with Michael

    12 Jackson?

    13 A. Around the end of March.

    14 Q. And what was the purpose of that trip?

    15 A. I guess Steve Wynn, the owner of the Mirage

    16 Hotel, invited Michael to come and stay and vacation

    17 in Las Vegas for a few days.

    18 Q. And did you meet Mr. Wynn while you were

    19 there?

    20 A. Yes, I did.

    21 Q. How long were you in Las Vegas for that

    22 trip?

    23 A. Two or three nights.

    24 Q. And again, how did you get there?

    25 A. Steve Wynn’s jet.

    26 Q. And did his jet take you back home

    27 afterwards?

    28 A. Yes.

    So if it was often Sony, Steve Wynn (and possibly Pepsi) who arranged trips for him even when he was going on vacation why was Michael to pay when he was going on a business trip and was invited by others?

    And how were the Safechucks different from Michael in that situation – if both worked for Pepsi?

    Imagining people being so convinced and in grip of the belief of MJ to be a p-f.Their absurd and strange “celebrations” on his bd, described on this blog are truly more bizarre ans strange than what was even stated in the trash “journalism about MJ.” Those who have taken some time to study his life and personality do understand that he was human, with a great musical talent.He deserves to be even more revered for his extensive and consistent thoughts and deeds for those given less, suffering from hunger and diseases.
    Peole who arranged for those “hate celebrations” on Michaels birthday carry that hate within themselves and then look to MJ for some release.I think they are sick.

    Interesting, PanWise, how you lump things together. So to you being a ped…..le is the same as having flaws or being human? No, you mix things up deliberately or don’t get the point. Where did I say MJ had no flaws? I am aware of every flaw MJ had, and I even love his flaws because it makes him human. But the accusation of being a ped….ile is something completely different. And whatever you mean with a “bad person”, it is even something different than that. I very well can listen to the music or love the art of a person with flaws, because this even may be part of his creativity. But I cannot love the music of a ped….ile, it’s impossible because it is one of the worst crimes. And I am convinced that such a person would not be able to create wonderful, positive, uplifting music for the benefit of mankind, like MJ did. It’s not in their DNA.

    It’s hypocritical that you mention Vogel, Stillwater and Fast because their “disgust” with MJ fans goes into a completely different direction and you mix up things here the same way. Stop using their good names for your agenda! We are not talking about flaws here, and you know it!
    If you love Michael Jackson, why do you defend his haters who say they “love Michael Jackson’s music .. but…”, as Terry Dutton said? Helena was talking about people who “love his music … in spite of thinking him to be a reprehensible human being” and who “think it possible to love a man irrespective of his sexual abuse of children” – and this is what you defend? Stop trying to convince us that this is normal!

    Wow, I would say Helena’s comment lured out exactly one of those she was talking about.

    Stop being so melodramatic susannerb. JamieT is no more a p..phile than (presumably) you are. A juvenile attack such as yours is sadly starting to surface as a pattern in the MJFam. It’s unfounded nasty slurs and insults which have made people like Joe Vogel, Willa Stillwater and Susan Fast become exasperated and disgusted with large sections of the fan base, and want to give up their excellent work on Michael Jackson which would be a huge shame. Just stop it.

    The point that JamieT made stands in spite of your dissembling. Bad people do make good art. Are we so afraid of Michael Jackson becoming human? Laura Miller recently wrote a post for salon.com which, even though it was about authors, applies equally well to any area of the arts. She bemoans the fact that we see in authors we love the exemplary traits of their writing, as well as believing the sanitized version of their lives presented to us.

    Still, there’s much to be said for getting past this form of hero worship. Most writers, like most people, are a mixture of the reprehensible and the admirable. Our own personal lives require that we learn to love people flaws and all. When you idealize someone, you can’t truly know him or her, and that makes real, adult love impossible.

    Most people begin figuring out how to do this in their teens. It’s not an easy transition. Suddenly, every bad quality in our parents — people who were like gods to us as children — becomes a glaring, intolerable betrayal. They must be repudiated! We don’t realize until years later that this is the first step on the long road to seeing our parents as they really are and forgiving them for being human.

    Similarly, needing to believe that your favorite author lived in an exemplary way, embodying all the virtues of his best work, is an adolescent desire, passionate but ultimately unfair. Learning the truth is disillusioning at first, but enlightening in the end. Part of the sadly underrated process of growing up is realizing that people, the world and life are no less beautiful and amazing for being imperfect.

    My love for Michael is realistic. I won’t take away his humanity just because it’s politically incorrect in the fan base to admit to his many flaws. That is not me saying that Michael was a bad person, far from it. He was human.

    To all these hates they don’t have to like Michael Jackson we can except that its okay but to hate someone that much its just wrong.Is it because these people don’t trust themselves around children or are they so easy to believe everything they hear.You do not have to change your mind just open it and don’t judge this man if you haven’t walk in his shoes tune out the gossip listen with your heart and put your self in his place listen and search and you will hear the better person in you.How many pedophiles you know who are saying (i will help children till i have no penny left in my pocket)Everything it was out there he never deny his love for children and the good of humanity and how degrading for the parents of all these children the way these hates talk its like they no good enough to protect their kits they hates know better.Till his last breath he was all about helping who ever need it help.He was a little boy when he so what we all so those horrible images from Africa and he said to his mother one day am gonna do something about that he made it his mission he went around the world he witness the suffering and it did more then any body else he saved millions of lives.How many of us can we say we did something for some body else all we do try to harm each other.I don’t get it how is it wrong for an adult to be in the company of children.When i was groin up it was the normal think to do for all of us to have a male adult for protection you can sleep you can eat you can work and wash and go away together especially for boys there was no issue no dirty thinking and the man dint have to be relatives.Remember it does not matter who you sharing you bed with if they heart its not there nothing but nothing will ever happen you can share you bed with your father or brother and get molested and you can sleep with the sexiest woman or man and if your heart its not there again nothing will happen.My god his own mother would have abandon him if if she had the tiniest doubt.Look at him get to know the man that he was the way he was touching and kissing all these sick children with out a worry in the world not knowing what they were suffering from.It is so wrong and cruel the way we treated that special man with the heart of gold a man who had a portrait of Jesus on the wall on top of his bed in Neverland.You that you want his money go and work for your own with these money his children will continue his legacy and help the children of the world.This the voice of many we love MICHAEL JACKSON and we believe in you.

    @JamieT: Oh come on, your examples are ridiculous and absolutely far-fetched and fallacious. Most of your examples are 1. just allegations and/or 2. no crimes.

    Picasso may have behaved immoral, but flirting and adultory are no crimes. Mankind is used to it.

    Rudyard Kipling was a freemason and had a very conservative world-view, but experts don’t regard him as a racist. T. S. Eliot didn’t see any justification for this allegation.

    In Woody Allen’s case most people don’t believe in his guilt, so why should they reject his work? He was never convicted, though the media should have looked at the case more carefully.

    Oscar Wilde was a homosexual, so what? This is no crime nowadays, so why shouldn’t people appreciate his writings? And he was not embraced by his contemporaries – he was thrown in jail where his health was ruined, and he died as a poor man at 46.

    R. Kelly was never convicted as well, he was acquitted from his charges, his alleged victim denied abuse.

    Richard Wagner is a controversial composer who may have been an anti-Semite, but anti-semitism is widespread on earth and not a crime like many other political and social views. I personally don’t listen to Wagner for exactly that reason (and because I don’t like his ostentatious music)

    Flaubert had relationships with women. He apparently told himself about relationships with female and male prostitutes, but there is no proof they were underage.

    Charles Dickens may have left his wife and kids, but we know that he always took care of her financially and provided her with an allowance in his will.

    Michelangelo a ped….le? I never heard that and there is definitely no such evidence. Even if part of his art is regarded as homo-erotic, this has nothing to do with ped……lia.
    In addition, I assume that you mistake Michelangelo Buonoarroti (who created the famous ceiling in the Sistine Chapel) for another Michelangelo: Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio is the one some people suggest to have been homosexual and have had an interest in young boys (he created for example the painting “Amor Vincit Omnia” ). But this is also rejected by experts because there is no proof of it. And he is a different artist, not the famous Michelangelo our MJ loved because of his art.

    Wow, I would say Helena’s comment lured out exactly one of those she was talking about. Your speech makes clear where you come from: You only use words like “vicious”, “vile” and “despicable” for bad human behavior and opinions, but not for a crime like sexual abuse or ped…..lia. You call it a “sin” and the “sinners” possible allies? We call it a “crime” and “criminals” and we regard them as the scum of the earth. And none of it has any connection to Michael Jackson.

    For every normal person there are only two options – either we agree that Michael is an innocent man and we accept both him and his music, or if we think differently due to our ignorance (or stupidity) we accept neither him nor his music. There are only two options. I for one progressed from one to the other.

    But this is the choice for normal people only.

    Now who are the people that suggest the hybrid variant? The variant when they love his music (and suggest that we do the same) in spite of thinking him to be a reprehensible human being?

    If you give it a serious thought, you will realize that these people are different. They think it possible to love a man irrespective of his sexual abuse of children. And by promoting this idea they are teaching others to love a child abuser for various reasons – because he is talented, nice, clever, handsome, can’t help himself, was also abused, etc.

    Just make one more logical step from this point and you will realize who these people are.
    Did you guess?

    Is that true though Helena?

    Is Picasso’s vicious philandering and adultery, resulting in two of his women going mad and another two committing suicide, a barrier to the masses enjoying his art?

    Do people enjoying The Jungle Book have a second thought about Rudyard Kipling’s vile racism?

    Are the hundreds of thousands of people who flock to view Woody Allen’s latest offering, Irrational Man, promoting or condoning his molestation of his stepdaughter?

    Did not millions of people enjoy the writings of Oscar Wilde even though he was a homosexual when it was considered against God and Law?

    By listening to and enjoying Are You Not Alone, a brilliant song from the HIStory album, does that mean we agree with R Kelly’s abuse of underage girls?

    When we attend The Ring do we even give a second thought to Wagner’s despicable anti-semitism?

    While reading Madame Bovary does it cross our mind that Flaubert paid to have sex with young boys?

    Do not tens of thousands of people every year marvel at the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel even though Michaelangelo was a pedophile?

    Do we even care that Dickens made the life of his wife and children a total misery whilst we digest Oliver Twist?

    This is neither a message in support of the above nor a condemnation of Michael. I am merely pointing out the folly of your logic. The truth is, bad people do make good art and there is no way around it. So even if Michael was found to be guilty of some heinous crime (highly unlikely I know, but just for arguments sake), his brilliance and talent will continue to be celebrated by the world.

    It is ridiculous to suggest that anyone who hates the sin but loves the sinner is somehow nefarious or immoral, and falls into the trap of dismissing possible allies as haters. That isn’t fair to them or Michael’s talent. You should be more careful how you put things.

    The link susannnerb posted of Chantal trying to sell MJ memorabilia is pathetic any way you look at it
    Whether it is Chantal, trying to get a grand for herself or her brother,( who happens to be in Ca recently looking for work), using her account , it just shows these people need money, and evidently no one in that family has enough, to prevent other family members from embarrassing themselves and groveling for cash from the MJ fans
    If it is Wade, I would imagine he had to take it on the plane from Hawaii..unbelievable

    To me , once again it just shows that nothing happened to Wade or anyone else .
    The Robsons trying to sell his autographed picture,
    The Arvizo trying to get the jacket back from the prosecutors that MJ gave them .
    Safechuck bitter that his jacket was supposed to be returned and he didnt get it back.
    Even Diane Dimond hanging his picture in her home .
    The common thread with all these people, is their stories and explanations are idiotic.

    Ive seen Chantal post pictures from Justin Timberlake concert , where everyone knows, part of the show , he honors MJ and the audience sings along.And she is at the concert .
    Who would show up to watch someone who supposedly violated your brother , be honored ??
    There are people who have wished her family well, and they use MJ, as their logo , on their facebook page .
    They BRAG about being associated with him,by using his picture , and yet she or her mother isnt offended , these people are friends on their fb pages ??
    Her mother chats that they are doing fine , like nothing out of the ordinary is happening in their lives .as if none of these accusations have had any effect on her whatsoever.
    I have seen Chantal trying to sell used furniture, reminding people she is a massuese , offering to rent out her place for a few days ..using fundraiers things for projects .and trying to drum up work for her brother
    These are not people who have money and I would guess, what ever her brother may or may not have been paid to do, it isnt enought to support any of them for the rest of their lives .
    It is just amazing how obvious these people are

    I wonder everytime how some people are so motivated by greed to get money, something that we’ll ultimately leave behind once our time comes to leave this earth. I can’t help but fully empathise with Michael, his family and fans at the constant hate, lies, rumors, ridiculous scandals we have to dispel almost on a daily basis. It’s a war unlike any other that I’ve experienced. That which requires every ounce of strength, relisience, patience from each one of us-physically, mentally, emotionally and psychologically.

    I hope they’ll come a break of dawn where people will realise the media truly were/are wrong. It might be wishful thinking, but I’m also a dreamer of the sort. Michael unfortunately isn’t here with us anymore (physically) to defend himself, but we as fans should never tire and readily stand up for him and spread the truth, as you are doing. Bless his soul. Its sad how some people have this idea that Michael is a ‘monster’instead of knowing what a loving, caring, humble person he is.

    Gboete, so that you don’t have to click on that here is an excerpt from it showing the type of “evidence” the author thinks sufficient for calling Michael a p-le:

    “Today, I saw a tweet in my TL from Atlanta TV anchorwoman Jovita Moore, commemorating Michael Jackson’s birthday.

    I was genuinely taken aback. This is a fairly prominent member of the Atlanta media (a top 10 market) giving a shout-out to a pedophile. I’m not saying people should be out burning his CDs or hosting “I Hate Michael” parties…but who the heck celebrates the birthday of a dead pedophile? As it turns out…LOTS of people. There are celebrations across the country today. When I expressed my disgust on Twitter, I discovered there is also an entire fever swamp of Michael Jackson “Truthers” out there, too. People who insist that Michael Jackson did nothing wrong.
    Really? REALLY?
    A few reminders:
    type of 'evidence' sufficient for a MJ hater

    If none of this works, I’ve got two words: “Jesus Juice.”

    A quick reminder from me now:

    1) The story about 24 “abused kids” was pure science fiction first published by a British tabloid journalist James Desborough (from a now defunct “News of the World”) and then reprinted in the US. We discussed his article in two posts but studying the matter under the microscope did not produce ANY evidence for those claims. Not a single piece. An interesting coincidence connected with James Desborough’s series is that it appeared during the AEG trial.
    Here is one of the posts on that matter: https://vindicatemj.wordpress.com/2014/04/13/barresi-pellicano-and-michael-jackson-fbi-files-part-2/

    2) “Why I sleep with little boys” is an especially vicious comment on Bashir’s documentary.

    3) “He kept me out of school… so that he could molest me” is about Wade Robson who testified under oath that Michael never touched him and was never inappropriate with him in any way, but five years after Michael’s death suddenly realized that he had been “anally raped”. Actually he says he always remembered it only he didn’t realize that it was sexual abuse and it dawned on him only when a therapist explained it.

    4) And the article beginning with “He was manipulating the boy’s genitalia …” is quoting the Fillipino couple Quindoys who were fired by Michael and who sued him for $500,000 allegedly owed to them in overtime pay. The suit went nowhere but the Quindoys struck back with allegations of “what they saw”.

    A year prior to that (when they were still working in Neverland) they were praising Michael on TV, but after the dismissal suddenly produced a certain diary which they allegedly kept. They could never explain why they didn’t approach the police if they were witnesses of all those “crimes”.

    Glen Veneracion, a law student and nephew to the Quindoys, told interviewers his aunt and uncle were opportunists and they were an embarrassment, “I just feel bad that this is happening. I’m ashamed. I’m ashamed to be related to these people. I’m ashamed for the people in our country. It’s an embarrassment It really is.” He described the Quindoys antics as a desperate attempt to make money.

    “What disturbs me the most out of all of this is that they waited so long. Why did it take them three years to come up with these allegations? That’s what really is disturbing. If this was true, they should have come out with it a long time ago instead of jumping on the bandwagon.”

    Veneracion went to Pellicano with his statement and established the lack of credibility of the Quindoys. He answered questions concerning the diary the Quindoys claimed to have kept, “I’m quite sure they wrote that diary to fit in with these allegations. He was gonna get it at any cost. And that’s what’s coming out now.” Veneracion was willing to testify in any court proceedings” (from Lisa Campbell’s book)

    “They never quit, it really is awful.” – July Morris

    Judy, yes, they never quit and it is indeed awful. When I started researching the subject and then writing in Michael’s defense I didn’t know that smearing Michael was a concerted effort on some people’s part and that they would never quit, but now I do.

    Back in 2009 I thought that all this trashing of Michael Jackson was just a kind of a misunderstanding on people’s part and as soon as they realize how wrong they were all the dust will settle down and the matter will be over.

    But now I know that it was not a simple “misunderstanding”. The organizers of this campaign have put so much effort into throwing Michael into the class of p-les that they won’t stop. They set this goal long time ago and are determined to reach it no matter what.

    This is the reality we have to live with. I’m saying it because it is better to know the bitter truth than live by sweet illusions – the struggle for the truth about Michael’s innocence will have to go on for a very long time.

    “But I am so glad there are people like you, Helena, you are a driven, wonderful person.”

    Thank you, Judy. I’m not anyone special but am simply a truth seeker. Always have been that way and always detested lies. In my opinion the truth has an absolute value and whenever I manage to establish another truthful fact I feel as happy as if I struck gold.

    My biggest dream is that with every new coming day more and more people will value the truth more than anything else in life. To me truth is God and lies are the opposite force (in fact even the Bible calls this other force “the prince of lies”).

    “Never give up!”

    Judy, even if I wanted to I can’t give up. Seeking the truth is like breathing to me. Of course I’m not immortal but by the moment my time here is over, I hope that the job of truth-seeking will be upheld by other people.

    “it’s frustrating, isn’t it?” – Nina

    Nina, it is disturbing, because these days people don’t need any proof. What is just said is believed. And the more often it is just said, the more it is believed.

    Actually it is marketing technology and all commercials are based on this principle. It would be extremely naive to think that Michael’s detractors are not applying this principle. They do and resort to this method on a regular basis.

    Essentially these days the rules of the game are extremely primitive – the winner is not the one who holds to the truth, but the one who is louder and talks more. And gets a better media coverage.

    Michael Jackson’s time will come only when (if) people learn to value the truth, no matter how scarcely reported it is.
