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.
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.
