Well, Jackson types anyway, with his first public message since his acquittal on child molestation and conspiracy charges June 13:

“Without God, my children, my family and you, my fans, I could not have made it through. Your love, support and loyalty made it all possible.

You were there when I really needed you. I will never forget you. Your ever-present love held me, dried my tears, and carried me through.

I will treasure your devotion and support forever. You are my inspiration.

Love,

Michael Jackson”

The message is on the MJJ Source site, which is also the home of his infamous celebratory video: after a dramatic opening fanfare flourish, a screeen emblazoned with “Innocent” and a hand flashing a victory sign, the video segues into a montage of quotes proclaiming Jackson’s innocence and predicting his acquittal, interspersed with a calendar of historic events including “Martin Luther King is born,” “The Berlin Wall falls,” “Nelson Mandela is freed,” and then, most importantly of all, “June 13, 2005, Remember this date for it is a part of HIStory.”

He IS the world, he is the children, he is the wind beneath our wings.

    MJ supporters should celebrate by throwing a kiddie slumber party at Neverland Ranch.

    or they could do the dangle

    The dangle to “Mac The Knife”.

    bitter

  • nick

    After having been found guilty by all the media of the world before even hearing any piece of evidence, after having been pronounced overwhelmingly guilty by the (ignorant) american people, after have read and heard over and over again that he would spend 20 years in jail, I do think there is a case for triumphalism.
    Not guilty on all counts. Who would have thought so among all the media brainwashing that this man HAD TO be guilty ? Who would have put a penny on it ?

    Michael Jackson has all the reasons to show the world that he is an innocent man and to be triumphant.

    God bless Michael Jackson.

  • Eric Olsen

    I never read anywhere that he would spend 20 yers in jail, simply that he COULD spend 20 years in jail if convicted on all charges.

    As Churchill said, be magnanimous in victory

  • nick

    whateva

  • Eric Olsen

    this just further proves that for all his money and fame, Jackson has zero class

  • nick

    Don’t be so bitter Eric. I never thought you would go down to the level of criticising is level of “Class”. What next ? Get a grip.

  • Eric Olsen

    style counts Nick, especially when you are an entertainmetn star

  • nick

    Are you arrogant foolish enough to say that Michael Jackson needs lessons on how to be an entertainer ? Do you realise that you are talking utter nonsense ?

  • http://victorplenty.blogspot.com Victor Plenty

    Once big top, now sideshow. Yeah, maybe he needs a refresher course on how to be an entertainer.

    Unless of course the sideshow was what Mr. Jackson was aiming for.

  • nick

    For twenty years the press have been desperately trying to bring him down. For 13 years he has been persecuted by a blood thirsty DA. For decades we have heard that his career was over. For years and years we heard that he was a peadophile and yet the man still sell albums by millions and millions. He is a unique phenomenon and he will bounce back !

  • nick

    He is still standing when most people would be devastated by the incredible amount of hate campaigns he has had to face. This trial being only the latest of the sort. And once more he came out victorious ! There is a case for triumphalism.

  • http://victorplenty.blogspot.com Victor Plenty

    In any conspiracy against Mr. Jackson, the biggest conspirator has been none other than Mr. Jackson himself. If he hadn’t handed out such huge quantities of ammunition to use against him, nobody could have gotten this far in any campaign to bring him down.

    Watching him suffer for his many missteps may provide entertainment to some, like the sufferings of sideshow performers.

    But I doubt very much that’s the kind of entertainment he really wants to be remembered for.

  • nick

    Yes well of course I mean do you remember that oxygen chamber ? Fucking freak ! And also he whitened his skin didn’t he ? And he did have sex with little boys. Oh and I forgot he bought elephant man’s bones. Weirdo !

  • Eric Olsen

    actually, I’m not convinced he has “had sex” in any kind of traditional sense with ANYONE

  • nick

    Of course it is up to you to decide what is fact and what is fiction. It is up to you to decide what has been invented from A to Z and what only comes from misunderstandings and communication problems.
    The world is obsessed with Michael Jackson and the only way to put things straight would be for him to spend his entire life denying the latest press releases.

    He has spent most of his life ignoring them instead and has given no more than 10 interviews in the past 20 years. People want to hear about him. They want to know what he is up to. When there is nothing new to say about him, they just spin the truth or invent incredible stories for the eager-to-believe-anything clueless american public.

  • Eric Olsen

    I NEVER bet, but I’d be willing to bet he never had sex with either of his wives – the kids came from artificial insemination

  • http://victorplenty.blogspot.com Victor Plenty

    If you get near a point, Nick, feel free to make one.

    I don’t recall ever using such hateful rhetoric in regards to Michael Jackson’s eccentricities.

    It gives me no enjoyment at all to point out how the cumulative effect of his many odd lifestyle choices has been to give large segments of the public a deeply unfavorable impression of his mental stability.

    I’m not one of those who finds it entertaining to see the rich and famous fall from the heights of glory. I’d much prefer to have seen Mr. Jackson continue the artistic successes he enjoyed in the 1970s and 1980s.

    Unfortunately, he did not. He made serious mistakes, in terms of the effect his choices had on his public image.

    If that’s not the kind of entertainment he wants to provide, he needs to learn how to make better choices.

  • nick

    my point is that i do believe he has been treated unfairly for the past 2 decades. I am not sure why the media likes to bash him but he certainly is a victim of his own success.

  • http://victorplenty.blogspot.com Victor Plenty

    Everyone gets unfair treatment in the media. That’s why it’s so unwise to hand out ammunition for them to use against you.

    Every famous entertainer is expected to have one or two eccentric personal traits. It’s only when their oddities begin to outweigh anything anyone else could possibly identify with that a celebrity’s public image really suffers some serious damage.

    In Michael Jackson’s case, this problem reaches major overload. Even if fully half the odd things reported about him were completely fabricated by the press, he would still seem totally bizarre to the average person.

  • http://paperfrigate.blogspot.com DrPat

    As long as his cumulative wierdnesses were harmful only to Jackson and his reputation, most of “the world” simply enjoyed his music and snickered at his excesses.

    With the allegations of molestation, however, came a different degree of attention. He lost a lot of supporters when he asserted that it was okay for him to sleep with young boys.

    HE said it, not the press.

    And, nick, you can spin all you like, but people make judgements based on what they learn, and what we learned from Michael Jackson HIMSELF turned many of us away in disgust.

    You go ahead, blinders firmly in place, soundly convinced that Jacko can do no wrong. That’s your judgement (such as it is). My opinion is, it is you who is obsessed about Michael Jackson.

    As for me – like the music, despise the man.

  • http://theugliestamerican.blogspot.com/ andy marsh

    I think I despise the parents tht put their kids in that situation more…I mean, we’ve heard for years about alledged abuse…but think about it…if you heard of alledged abuse at a day care facility…would you leave your kid there? Iwouldn’t…but then again…I love my kids!

  • Eric Olsen

    MJ purposely stoked the media machine when he thought it was to his advantage, and when he found out he couldn’t control the monster he had helped create he cried foul – seems a bit hypocritical to me

  • HW Saxton

    RE:Comment #13 “For years we have heard that his career is over…” You mean to tell me it’s not? His last single wasnt
    exactly number one with a bullet.I don’t
    recall it burning up the charts.

    It was also a collabaration with R.Kelly
    I mean c’mon now. That,in and of itself is mighty bizarre I’d say.It wasn’t all
    that bad of a song though strangely enough..

  • nick

    Actually “You rock my world” was a major worldwide hit !

  • nick

    I think many people fantasize about MJ career being over as much as they fatasized about him being convicted of child molestation.
    We have heard over and over since his innocence has been declared that his carreor HAD TO be over as if it were some kind of consolation prize for his detractors. I just have one thing to say to those people: Dream On. MJ is here to stay, like it or not !

  • http://parentheticalremarks.blogspot.com Pete Blackwell

    Settle down, Nick. When MJ got acquitted, it meant he didn’t have to go to jail. That’s it. It most certainly didn’t mean we have to somehow now believe that he’s really innocent, or that he’s just normal and misunderstood.

    We can all have our opinions. In this case, as it should be, the opinions of 12 people are the only ones that matter for his freedom.

  • Eric Olsen

    Sheik Jacko of Bahrain – sounds strangely apt

  • nick

    Yes you are quite right. The only people who got the oppurtinity to listen to the evidence for 4 months came to the conclusion that he was innocent of the crimes for which he was charged. That is indeed the only thing that matters.

  • http://www.gweissestate.com/blog/gweiss Gina Weiss

    Eric, I’m curious…when you were at the MJJsource site, did you happen to take a peek at his accomplishments and discography?
    He is the world’s most accomplished entertainer of all time. And he has singlehandedly done more for children than any celebrity that I know of.

    If you can’t see, or imagine, for one second that many of these people may have been after his millions, then I really don’t know what to say. To quote DrPat…You go ahead, blinders firmly in place.

    Greed is the main motivator for nearly every crime ever committed. The crime was done to Michael, NOT the other way around. Maybe the parents should have been prosecuted for their libelous and neglectful behavior.

    If you must entertain the possibility that the molestation had happened – those parents had their own greed to blame.

    When MJ got acquitted, it meant he didn’t have to go to jail. That’s it.

    No. It meant “NOT GUILTY”: a verdict rendered by a jury acquitting a criminal defendant upon finding that the prosecution has not proven the defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt
