i agree. he truly is the "king of pop" and his hard work deserves every success that comes his way.
the media has done a very unfair job of representing (and smashing) his reputation to the public.
however, he did survive a very abusive childhood and even normal people don't get through stuff like that without some scars. i think mr. jackson carries emotional baggage in the form of physical and mental disorders. i don't care that he altered his face because his dad would make fun of his big nose and he had a lot of zits as a teenager. but the fact that he so vehemently denies it (and believes what he's saying) is an indication that something isn't quite right upstairs.
i don't doubt that he has never laid a finger on any of the kids that sleep over at his place. i think he views the "sleepovers" as just that and sees himself as one of the kids. not as a grown adult whom society would frown upon for having children not related to him in his bedroom. if he was a woman, it would be different. if he was 12, it would be different. i don't think he's even capable of malicious intent.
he reminds me of a little boy trying to be a grown-up. i hope he really is like peter pan and gets to stay in neverland forever and never grow up.
do you think he actually WILL release a new album?
