Michael Jackson: Good Riddance

Michael Jackson died a few weeks ago. To me, it was an interesting footnote, but I didn’t really care. I was more upset about Farrah Fawcett dying. But I was amazed to see the outpouring of love towards him in the days that followed. Amazed, because it seems completely misplaced. I know people are respectful of the dead, but we can’t ignore the truth: Michael Jackson was a horrible person. He was an extremely talented musical genius, but he was also a horrible person.

First and foremost, he was a child molester. I know people like to say he was acquitted, and that proves he wasn’t a child molester. Actually, all that proves is that has good lawyers, and the prosecution botched the case (for more analysis on the trial, see my earlier post: Michael Jackson is a Child Molester). Enough information came out of the case to take away all doubt in my mind that Jackson is a child molester. I expect, over the next ten or twenty years, children who were molested by Jackson will start speaking out, and we’ll have the true picture. In the end, I think Jackson’s real legacy will be as the most successful child molester who ever lived.

Some people are even making the argument that Jackson is a greater entertainer than Elvis. That, to me, is a ridiculous and ultimately pointless argument. First of all, the definition of “greatest entertainer” is meaningless. Are you talking greatest in terms of artistic ability? Creativity? Marketability? Financial earnings? The two artists lived in completely different eras and had completely different skills. More than that, Elvis has been dead for decades and created a legacy post-mortem, securing his place in history. Jackson’s been dead two weeks. There’s no way we can judge his legacy right now. Especially if more molestations come to light.

Michael Jackson was also a certifiable nutcase. He was clearly a plastic surgery addict, and (in a related story) a liar who repeatedly lied about everything from his plastic surgery to his treatment in jail. He called himself Peter Pan, but he was really psychologically stunted, and probably a treasure trove of untreated mental illnesses. He was a spendthrift who was making millions a year, but still managed to spend millions more than he earned until he ran out, then lived on gifts and handouts (like free cars and even houses) like a bum, and committed bank fraud by using fake names to get more when his credit ran out. Speaking of white-collar crime, he was also a drug addict who took Oxycontin, Demerol, Zoloft, and a host of other drugs . He broke the law to take ten Xanax every night by convincing doctors to fill the prescriptions in their names. Hardly the kind of person we want our children looking up to.

I know I’m not the only one who feels this way, because the keywords “Michael,” “Jackson,” and “sucks” have gotten me a ton of hits since his death. Once the shock wears off, I hope the world will go back to hating and making fun of MJ the way he deserves. Listen to his music, but ignore the man who created it. He doesn’t deserve your love.

Hi Anonymous,

I read over my post, don't think it says anything about the world evolving around me. Maybe you read something into it that wasn't there - like the idea that Michael Jackson is a good person

you are a person who is clearly biased against mj amd you are also a racist... if you really believe he molested those children then fine, but to say "good riddance" is totally disrespectful to a dead person and if you are in the middle east, your head will be cut off... i hope you die alone and with maggots eating your stinking dead flesh BECAUSE BIGOTS LIKE YOU DESERVE A GRUESOME DEATH. BIGOT, BIGOT BIGOT, RACIST... YOU WILL BE REMEMBERED AS A RACIST BIGOT.

What do you all think of the King of Pop? When you think of Michael Jackson do you think of today's Michael or the moonwalking Michael Jackson from the 70s 80s? I personally have a lot of respect for this man, and im not even from his era.

Dear Anonymous,

I think it's funny that your argument against my post boiled down to calling me a bigot, since absolutely nothing in this post referred to his race. Just another distraction Jackson supporters throw around when people start bringing up his shortcomings.

Calling me a bigot reminded me of another reason to hate Michael Jackson. The man was born African-American, but did everything physically and medically possible to change that. The only time he ever seemed proud of his ethnicity is when he got in trouble and needed support from the black community.

And by the way, I'm African-American, too.

He was not a musical genius, he was the best musical genius that everybody could watched. Also he help to much people around the world, you can not say that he was a horrible person. If you look for info about what he did for children, an poor people, You're really gonna stay impressed.

Hello, my name is C and you definitely need to read this posted comment. I know the Jacksons, I know Mike personally and he is not dead, keep reading. I am not a fan of his music because music isn't interesting to me BUT I know Mike, i've slept with him and at the time I was underage, he's bisexual BUT not a child molestor, I have actually tried to have sex with him but he won't til I am older. You know Mike is nothing as people think, don't judge a man til you know him personally cause I know Mike like a brother and I don't judge him, until I have sex with Michael I will not judge him. Anyway he has been off drugs since March 27, 2010 and he actually has two new children, Helena and Zachariah and he loves them. Anyway just respect people, living or dead, it does NOT matter, Mike is living in a 38 million dollar mansion and i've been there before and I will continue to visit him until we become intimate and then perhaps i'll live with him. I don't know what to say cause you won't believe me, you're just another disgusting simple minded human being and you probably lack the intelligence to understand the great possibility that he is alive. I know he's alive, I have photos and audios, videos of Mike way after June 2009. He's doing well and having a good life, he's a Christian unlike news reports say, Mike is an average guy and you gotta deal with that buddy, God bless and L.O.V.E.
