He's on Dateline on NBC at the same time! Decisions! Decisions! The space shuttle Columbia didn't get this much coverage.

Hey everyone I haven't had a chance to post in a while, but popped on here to read through the threads and saw this one.

I was just wondering what your opinions are of Michael after seeing the shows created to give us a little glimps into his world.

Personally I was always of the mind that he was a freak, and had major issues. After watching the documentary as well as the special on 20/20 last night I came away with a different outlook. I think he definitely has issues, thats apparent. But I found myself smiling as I saw him interacting with the kids visiting Neverland, and tearing up when he was brought to tears by his ever compassionate interviewer

Granted, Michael has made many judgement errors that we are made more than aware of via the media- but IMHO a child molester and 'freak', he's not. I saw a very lonely man, who appears to be caught in a perpetually childlike mentality. His sense of innocence and love for children struck a real chord in me. And when the interviewer kept coming back to the scandal of his 'sleepovers' to which he commented that Its about love for the children and the world needs more love like that, and that when we think of sharing a bed we automatically associate thaty with sex, which is wrong. As a parent who had her kids sleeping in her bed for the first two years of their lives , I can completely relate to what he was trying to convey. Theres nothing more comforting than that feeling of having your kids cuddled up with you in bed. Now I know they weren't his biological kids, but I sincerely think hes trying to gain that feeling of love and comfort (which he obviously missed out on in childhood) through these kids.

Another thing I thought of was that he seems like a very fragile person emotionally, and it would only make sense that he feels more at ease around kids than adults. When was the last time a little child was malicious or back stabbing to you?

I know I've been very long winded with this, but this is something that I have been talking with people a fair bit about in the last few days and I'd love to hear your opinions...

The end

While I don't doubt your assessment of the childlike mentality and his love for his children, I do not think he is an appropriate candidate for parent. As the interviewer pointed out on the trip to the zoo, he seemed unaware of any potential harm to his kids caused by the media and fan stampede. While he may have a love for his kids, his unstable mental state negates his effectiveness as a parent, IMO.

Didn't say I thought he was a prime candidate for a parent, nobody with those kind of deep mental issues is.

There are many molesters out there who have a "child-like mentality". Some of them are retarded, some never grew up. At any rate, I wouldn't let my son go to Neverland. It amazes me that people would let their kids go there unsupervised, just because he's famous! Not that I know that he is or isn't but common sense, people!! But I didn't catch the shows because I find him extremely creepy. And if he doesn't manage to endanger or screw up his kids now, what about when they're teenagers? I think he's utterly clueless.

Actually, when I saw the first MJ "show" (with the English interviewer), I was rather astonished how normal his son Prince seemed (when talking about his Star Wars shoes). Granted, in the future his upbringing may "damage" him, but he seemed to me to be a rather normal 6-8 year old.

I know I turned out a little warped because my mother made me wear a mask in public.

Was that after the failed attempt at getting the dog to play with you involving a pork chop?

There was no porkchop necessary. Just having my mother as a parent was damaging enough.

Deb... are you in some way related to either side of my family? I would blame it all on inbreeding if I didn't know better. My own mother screwed my up by giving in to my demands and not teaching me how to survive...
My dad is mentally ill, probably severe bipolar disorder. Oh, family reunions are fun! (If there were a smilie, I would put it here)

There is no way I would waste my time watching that child molesting freak!

I tried to watch the documentary about Michael Jackson. He's just too freaky, and I wound up changing the channel.

That Shopping Spree....WOW! Personally, I would appreciate it if Michael Jackson would come spend a few million at my store...

Just think of all the good he could do in this world with money like that, but his mind is too childish to think of parting with what is his. You know how young boys are "This is MINE!" It's sad to see such riches go to waste...
