ABC News has not disappointed me. They are continuing to keep Michael Jackson on the front page headline in spite of the complete and total lack of any new information since he was arrested yesterday morning. It’s a goddamn tabloid, is what it is.

Who have they dug up now? One of Michael’s brothers, Jermaine Jackson. Jermaine says he thinks the whole thing is a racially motivated vendetta; “They’re a bunch of racist rednecks out there who don’t care about people.” He doesn’t think it was appropriate for 70 cops to search Neverland Ranch. After all, Jermaine says Michael isn’t a criminal. And Jermaine’s word ought to be good enough to keep that no-good so-and-so District Attorney from being mean to Michael Jackson.

Jermaine is also not terribly worried about what the cops might find at Neverland. In fact, he’s so sure that Michael is innocent, that if the cops do find something, it must have been planted there; “I’m not afraid of what they took out. I’m afraid of what they put in.”

What a charming man.

Might be interesting to watch Jermaine try to explain how the cops would fake evidence such as, oh, an explicit video of one of the kids in question in Michael’s bedroom. I’m not saying there is such a video. Just that there are certain kinds of evidence that can’t be faked or “put in”.

Jermaine just wants another 15 minutes. He’s a no-talent hack who tried desperately to strike out on his own when Michael became famous. But the fact is, the guy doesn’t have any skills. I don’t know what he does these days, but every time controversy starts to swirl around MJ, there’s no shortage of people — his family included — ready to step up to the mike and talk shit about him.

Jermaine seems to have inherited their father’s bigoted outlook on the world. Joe Jackson, in an interview by Louis Theroux, once became extremely offended when the interviewer asked if MJ had a “partner”. One of MJ’s handlers was present to control the nature of the interviewer’s questions (which gives you a good idea how paranoid MJ is). The handler’s name is referenced only as “Majestik Magnificent” (appropriately circus-like), reportedly a magician. The “Will” is Will Yapp, the director/producer. The conversation went on like this:

Louis: Would you like to see Michael settled down with a partner?
Joe Jackson: Now what’s a partner?
Louis: A loved one.
Majestik Magnificent: What are you trying… a wife, you saying?
Louis: A boyfriend or a girlfriend.
Majestik Magnificent: A what? What did you say?
Louis: A boyfriend or girlfriend.
Majestik Magnificent: What are you trying to say, that Michael’s gay now? What if Michael said I would, what would you just. Stop. Turn the camera off, now, turn the camera off, turn the camera, turn the camera, turn the camera off, turn the camera off, or else there gonna be when I let you turn it on and continue… turn the camera off.
Louis: Why? (over Majestik protesting) this isn’t your interview Majestik it’s Joe’s.
Majestik: I don’t care that’s why I’m here.
Louis: What do you say Joe?
Majestik Magnificent: Hey Hey Hey Louis Louis.
Joe Jackson: You’re asking me asking the wrong questions.
Majestik Magnificent: Louis, Louis we have to talk about this Louis.
Will: That’s a conversation we can have Majestik.
Joe Jackson: If I had known this was going to be talking about Michael, you know what I’m saying, I would never have given you the chance to do this, never.
Majestik Magnificent: Exactly, exactly. This is Michael’s father and you’re going to sit there and say has he got a boyfriend, how much more disrespectful can you be.
Louis: Or a girlfriend.
Majestik Magnificent: You should just say a girlfriend or a wife. That’s an insult to Mr Jackson to let you come in…
Louis: Why is that insult?
Joe Jackson: Because we don’t believe in gays. I can’t stand them.
Majestik Magnificent: Me neither.
Joe Jackson: And you’re trying to say that Michael should have a boyfriend.
Majestik Magnificent: That’s an insult, I’m so glad Kate (Michael’s mother) ain’t here.
Joe Jackson: Katherine would really get on to you about that.
Majestik Magnificent: You sit there and say Michael have a boyfriend to his father, you don’t think that’s an insult.
Louis: or a girlfriend.
Joe Jackson: You said a boyfriend.
Louis: I said a boyfriend or a girlfriend.
Joe Jackson: What does he need a boyfriend for. Are you saying having a boyfriend as a girlfriend?
Louis: No. I don’t know what Michael’s romantic interests are, I don’t know which way he goes.
Joe Jackson: Certainly I’m sitting here saying right now, he’s not with no boys, ok, it’s not that. Anyway Majestik I’m going have to end this.
Majestik Magnificent: See. I told you.
Joe Jackson: Because you know I’m not going to make Michael mad at me by talking about…
Majestik Magnificent: I understand (to Louis) I tried to warn you…
Louis: Let’s talk about something else…
Majestik Magnificent: I tried to warn you and you wouldn’t stop, you just wouldn’t stop, I tried to tell you it’s over.
Louis: The only reason I said boyfriend or girlfriend is because I said partner and Joe said what do you mean by partner and I was explaining what that means.
Joe Jackson: I don’t understand.
Louis: Let me rephrase it. Would you like to see Michael in a steady relationship?
Joe Jackson: If you’re referring to as a wife, with a wife, a lady wife, that’s up to him what he wants to do. If he’s happy like he is that’s fine; if he wants to be with a lady woman that’s fine with me. Whatever he wants is fine with me.
Louis: Well, except a boyfriend apparently.
Joe Jackson: That ain’t on… that ain’t going happen.
Majestik Magnificent: Michael’s not gay, so you have to be gay to have a boyfriend and I’m telling you Michael is not gay.
Joe Jackson: That is not going to happen. We’re through, you asked questions for twenty minutes, we’re through.
Majestik Magnificent: Yeah we’re through, that’s it.

As you can see, Joe and Majestik are both quite touchy on the subject of Michael being with “boys”. One wonders. Maybe these two are just homophobic weirdos. But Louis was clearly not attempting to be provocative. Joe’s general cluelessness about homosexuality is bizarre and cringe-inducing, and more than a little pathetic.

Note how Joe and Majestik both seem very agitated about the question in general. Louis even tries to drop the subject and move on, and they won’t let him. Joe says “You’re asking the wrong questions”, as if there’s a list somewhere of the Ten Things Thou Shalt Not Ask About Michael Jackson, and Louis has just broken the rules.

Joe is worried that Michael will get mad at him. In fact, various family members and friends of Michael have expressed this worry. I guess Joe is concerned his little singing meal ticket might expire.

Complete weirdness.

And quite shameless of ABC to be putting Jermaine’s mug on TV an “exclusive interview”. What trash. God, I wish they’d all just STFU and let the cops handle it.

    I’m pretty upset over the modern media’s desire to make somthing out of nothing, or to continue to report when they lack new information to warrant any more being said. Sometimes, journalism has to wait for facts and circumstance before it can report. Too many people I think fail to realize that somtimes, the answer just isn’t known. And the responsible reporter will wait like the rest of us

    I’ve been thinking of why modern media outlets continue to re-hash and dissect and discuss the tiniest most trivial matters for days, weeks, MONTHS even when nothing new can really be gained from it.

    It’s my theory that modern technology has spawned a self-serving need for information. Think about it. A mere 20 years ago, to stay up to date, you read the morning paper, watched the evening news, and you knew what was going on in the world. Now, you have the internet, news web pages, PDA’s and cell phones with built-in news tickers and access to CNN’s web site. This is creating a market, a NEED for news, ANY news, people simply aren’t going to buy these fancy doodads if they can’t hit “refresh” every 3 minutes and get somthing new and exciting to read. So to make sure there’s ALWAYS somthing “breaking” the news has had to expand their reach to talking to an ever-growing string of experts and talking heads and out right loonies and conspiracy theorists just to fill the public’s desire to be on a perpeutal front page sensation

    MJ’s father is a total sicko. I saw a interview once when he was asked if he beat MJ, he said he didn’t beat the kid, he whipped him with a belt and that wasn’t beating the kid because a beating you do with a stick. If MJ has done something wrong, he’ll have to take the concequences of course, but I can’t help feeling sorry for the guy. What a twisted way to have to grow up.

    Joe doesn’t believe in gays but doesn’t mind sticking his stick into his own daughter (Latoya), and I wouldn’t be surprised to find abuse of his sons either. And so the cycle of abuse continues…..

    I like the Jacksons. I think that Jermaine did a good job standing up for his brother, despite the controversy, such as Mike’s plastic surgery, alleged skin bleaching, molestation of children, and alleged financial difficulties. I am no judge, but when any of the Jackson clan go through some type of legal shit, they all stick together, no matter if the person is guilty of not. Now that’s a family bond!

  5. QueenOfBondage says:

    Molested children usually become molesters. I believe that Michael Jackson was molested as a child.

    For the record, Michael Jackson, Maxwell, Prince, Luther Vandross, Sticky, Busta Rhymes, etc are not homo-sexuals….They just don’t get enough good wet black pussy. If they try mine, they would, in the words of Michael Jackson “Enjoy Themselves”
