Finding the Real Michael Jackson- A Personal Journey

“Three things cannot be long hidden; the Sun, the Moon and the Truth”                                              Buddha 

On January 10th, 2020,  MJJJP ran across a series of tweets from a Twitter account
“We Be illin’ “
   @human_nature_99, regarding their personal experience researching and getting to know Michael Jackson. We thought others might like to see that despite Dan Reed, Wade Robson, James Safechuck, Channel4 and HBO’s intention for Leaving Neverland to “cancel” Michael Jackson, the complete opposite has occurred. The tweet statement began:

 

 

 

 

 

 

MJJJP was granted permission by “We Be illin’ ” to recontruct their whole statement on our wordpress because we completely agree that there are many people out there who have experienced the same enlightenment regarding Michael Jackson. The reality of his life juxtaposed to the false narrative presented by Leaving Neverland, coupled with the 30 yr mischaracterization presented by the media at large, requires research and an open heart to find truth.

The Twitter statement: 

Apologies for the long thread, but I’m just going to put this out there because I know others may have had the same experience: I’m a little sad and embarrassed to admit that I didn’t appreciate Michael Jackson’s genius until after he passed away.

Often heard his music but for some reason, didn’t feel that compelled to actually listen to it. I wasn’t really into pop culture, so I mainly listened to classical anyway. I’ve always knew about the allegations but didn’t pay too much attention because I didn’t know all the facts.

For some reason, he became a huge topic this year and I came across a few music videos of him. I actually truly listened for the first time and thought the music and the dancing was extraordinary. At the same time, however, I also came across several negative videos, such as

the cut-out segment of Michael and Arvizo in Bashir’s documentary (which, taken out of context, seemed very strange to me) and L*aving N*verland videos. So, I kinda had an ambivalent feeling about him, like “His music’s good but he’s also kinda creepy?”

Then, dozens and dozens of MJ-related Youtube videos started popping up in my recommended – from videos about Michael’s childhood to his interactions with his fans to his humanitarian work. A lot of positive videos and as I watched them, I just saw such a GIGANTIC disconnect

in the way media portrayed him and the real, raw videos of him as a human being, as a real individual. And, just observing all the videos of him doing good work for the world. It also made me a little scared, thinking “So, could a person who gives off so much love and care

really be evil at heart?” If that’s the case, who can you really trust in this world if “good” people can actually be so evil?” Keep in mind, during this whole time, I still was VERY reluctant to like him because I didn’t want to risk giving my admiration to a possible pedo.

So, I dug into the research and as I saw more and more videos about his innocence, it just became so absolutely ridiculous to me how ALL THIS EVIDENCE can be right in front of your face and how people can still overlook it all. It almost became like insanely imbecilic to me

that people could believe that nonsense. I eventually went from 50/50 on his innocence to 60/40 to just over 1000% sure that he was innocent. I actually joined Twitter as kind of an anonymous observer but I actually made my first comment when I saw a well-known company

throw lowkey shade at him and it made me LIVID. Like, how can you guys just so willingly contribute to one of the biggest cases of injustice in history? It actually got a buncha likes and a lot of other people started calling them out as well. And, that’s basically my

first experience into being vocal on this platform. So, yeah, I wasn’t an MJ fan before, but I think my story does kinda provide a little bit of insight into how a non-MJ fan could evolve into such a staunch defender of MJ. Because one thing I’m DEAD tired of is when MJ-guilters

immediately dismiss your COLD-HARD FACTS because “You worship a pedo and you’re just a delusional fan.” No sir, I was someone who looked at the cold hard facts and arrived at my own conclusion.

Twitter Statement ends

Note from MJJJP –

Unfortunately, the full account of how “We Be Illin’ ”  went from “non-fan” status; not really being aware of Michael Jackson’s life and the allegations against him to becoming a staunch supporter of his innocence was not constructed  on a Twitter Thread. These were all individual tweets and this is why We asked permission to reprint this on our wordpress. Without being in a thread we’d be required to copy each url from each tweet to present them each visually, so we asked permission to present them in one long statement,  for impact. The breaks in between the texts indicates the breaks between each tweet. We Be Illin has indicated to us that this was just ad-hoc, not encompassing all that they wanted to say and would like to someday edit it, to include other thoughts. We are more than willing to make that happen. 🙏🏼

Blanca Francia’s Deposition Blasts the Wade Robson Story

No Train Station for Safechuck – No Shower for Wade – Funny how TIMELINES keep tripping up these two fiction writers-

Vindicating Michael

The name of Blanca Francia is now firmly associated with Wade Robson. She used to be a personal maid to Michael Jackson, who later made controversial statements about him, and Robson insisted on Michael’s innocence for the first 30 years of his life, but since making his U-turn in 2013 has told most horrible things about his former friend.

So previously Francia and Robson were on the opposite sides of the barrier, and now they are allies whose case against Jackson is based on each other stories – Blanca Francia thinks she saw the shadow of Robson in Michael Jackson’s shower at Neverland, and Robson, though recalling none of it himself, goes much further and claims she saw Michael Jackson “rubbing the Plaintiff” and “the Plaintiff’s head was pressed against Michael Jackson’s stomach area.”

The above Robson’s statements come from his Motion to amend his third amended complaint filed on…

Regarding Michael Jackson by Christine Decroix

 

Screen Shot 2019-11-26 at 1.19.34 PM.pngFrom “Getting to Know Michael Jackson” Facebook

Belgium singer Christine Decroix’s recorded music with Michael and here are some of her thoughts on the King of Pop.

“Together let’s stand up and denounce the “wolves who killed the little lamb”, the people like journalist Bashir who didn’t know him and abused of his trust for their profit. As a friend I spent a great amount of time in the recording studio with him, we always had children with us and were always laughing and playing between recording sessions. He brought a lot of joy in people lives.

I grew up in Belgium raised by my dad who, as a chief of police, taught me to always be suspicious and I can tell you that I couldn’t see anything wrong with Michael except maybe that it was a man who at a young age never had the time to be a kid. He told me once that children are pure and innocent and adults always want something from him. That’s the sole reason he felt more comfortable with children, they just loved him because he was magic for the kids, and made them feel like giants.

He loathed vulgarity and would have been upset at me laughing with a dirty joke in the studio. He built a movie theatre for disabled children in his house. People are sick to think he did that to attract them as a child molester. They judge without knowing and should be ashamed because they largely contributed to his downfall and his death. Michael Jackson was hypersensitive, maybe it was the key of his talent. He suffered tremendously of all these false accusations, and the slanders that were spread. These unscrupulous persons took everything away from him including his amazing career. He did not have a childhood, his dad still beat him after he was 30. People always criticized his look but when your own father keeps telling you your nose is too big, you finally believe it and you try to fix it.

Michael was a strange guy for a lot of people because of his look. So it was both an easy and profitable target for some media wanting to bring him down. He was a genius and an amazing talent already at a young age. Nobody can judge him without knowing him.

If one of you had spent only one hour with him, you would have fallen in love with his pure heart. He could make everybody around him feel special. He was even thanking you for working with him, and had definitely not a big star attitude, he was down to earth, lived on a healthy diet, never drank alcohol. The day of my birthday party in Tokyo he took my glass of champagne away from me and replaced it by a glass of water. He was not joking he just cared for people.

He already suffered from back problems in 1987 but I never saw him taking any drugs. It’s just a disgrace to compare his death with Anna Nicole Smith. Michael Jackson told me once “Coco (nickname he gave me), don’t judge a man until you’ve walked two moons in his moccasins ” so stop judging him, love him because he loved you all and that’s what he suffered from and why he was accused of committing such an horrible crime. He didn’t do it, he was found not guilty. They tried for years but couldn’t find any proof.

Once he also told me: animals kill to eat, humans kill by pleasure. He was like a child but a smart one. I tried a few years ago to gather people who knew him to speak out but nobody wanted to do it by fear of the media. Let’s unite to denounce the true murderers of Michael. I know today that his place belongs in paradise. Let’s get together, let’s get together and honour his life and legacy, simply because he was the greatest of all time.

Christine Decroix, a forever friend of Michael Jackson

ETI Breaks Down Why the New Michael Jackson Doc is BullSh!t –

Screen Shot 2019-08-30 at 1.14.38 PM

ETI breaks down why the new Michael Jackson documentary is total bullshit!
When Michael Jackson died in 2009, Wade Robson—the former choreographer whose allegations of abuse are at the center of a controversial new documentary, Leaving Neverland—wrote in tribute to his friend:

“Michael Jackson changed the world and, more personally, my life forever. He is the reason I dance, the reason I make music, and one of the main reasons I believe in the pure goodness of humankind. He has been a close friend of mine for 20 years. His music, his movement, his personal words of inspiration and encouragement and his unconditional love will live inside of me forever. I will miss him immeasurably, but I know that he is now at peace and enchanting the heavens with a melody and a moonwalk.”

Screen Shot 2019-08-30 at 1.00.30 PM

READ the following article  written by: Joe Vogel and reposted from: Click Here

Robson was twenty-seven years old at the time. Four years earlier, he testified at Jackson’s 2005 trial (as an adult) that nothing sexual ever happened between them. Prior to the trial Robson hadn’t seen Jackson for years and was under no obligation to be a witness for the defense. He faced a withering cross-examination, understanding the penalty of perjury for lying under oath. But Robson adamantly, confidently, and credibly asserted that nothing sexual ever happened.

What changed between then and now? A few things:

In 2011, Robson approached John Branca, co-executor of the Michael Jackson Estate, about directing the new Michael Jackson/Cirque du Soleil production, ONE. Robson admitted he wanted the job “badly,” but the Estate ultimately chose someone else for the position.

In 2012, Robson had a nervous breakdown, triggered, he said, by an obsessive quest for success. His career, in his own words, began to “crumble.”
That same year, with Robson’s career, finances, and marriage in peril, he began shopping a book that claimed he was sexually abused by Michael Jackson. No publisher picked it up.

In 2013, Robson filed a $1.5 billion dollar civil lawsuit/creditor’s claim, along with James Safechuck, who also spent time with Jackson in the late ‘80s. Safechuck claimed he only realized he may have been abused when Robson filed his lawsuit. That lawsuit was dismissed by a probate court in 2017.

In 2019, the Sundance Film Festival premiered a documentary based entirely on Robson and Safechuck’s allegations. While the documentary is obviously emotionally disturbing given the content, it presents no new evidence or witnesses. The film’s director, Dan Reed, acknowledged not wanting to interview other key figures because it might complicate or compromise the story he wanted to tell.

It is tempting for the media to tie Jackson into a larger cultural narrative about sexual misconduct. R. Kelly was rightfully taken down by a documentary, and many other high-profile figures have been exposed in recent years, so surely, the logic goes, Michael Jackson must be guilty as well. Yet that is a dangerous leap—particularly with America’s history of unjustly targeting and convicting black men—that fair-minded people would be wise to consider more carefully before condemning the artist. It is no accident that one of Jackson’s favorite books (and movies) was To Kill a Mockingbird, a story about a black man—Tom Robinson—destroyed by false allegations.

The media’s largely uncritical, de-contextualized takes out of Sundance seem to have forgotten: no allegations have been more publicly scrutinized than those against Michael Jackson. They elicited a two-year feeding frenzy in the mid-90s and then again in the mid-2000s, when Jackson faced an exhaustive criminal trial. His homes were ransacked in two unannounced raids by law enforcement. Nothing incriminating was found. Jackson was acquitted of all charges in 2005 by a conservative Santa Maria jury. The FBI, likewise, conducted a thorough investigation. Its 300-page file on the pop star, released under the Freedom of Information Act, found no evidence of wrongdoing.Screen Shot 2019-08-30 at 12.54.41 PM

Meanwhile, dozens of individuals who spent time with Jackson as kids continue to assert nothing sexual ever happened. This includes hundreds of sick and terminally ill children such as Bela Farkas (for whom Jackson paid for a life-saving liver transplant) and Ryan White (whom Jackson befriended and supported in his final years battling AIDS); it includes lesser-known figures like Brett Barnes and Frank Cascio; it includes celebrities like Macaulay Culkin, Sean Lennon, Emmanuel Lewis, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Corey Feldman; it includes Jackson’s nieces and nephews; and it includes his own three children.

The allegations surrounding Jackson largely faded over the past decade for a reason: unlike the Bill Cosby or R. Kelly cases, the more people looked into the Jackson allegations, the more the evidence vindicated him. The prosecution’s case in 2005 was so absurd Rolling Stone‘s Matt Taibbi described it like this:

Ostensibly a story about bringing a child molester to justice, the Michael Jackson trial would instead be a kind of homecoming parade of insipid American types: grifters, suckers and no-talent schemers, mired in either outright unemployment… or the bogus non-careers of the information age, looking to cash in any way they can. The MC of the proceedings was District Attorney Tom Sneddon, whose metaphorical role in this American reality show was to represent the mean gray heart of the Nixonian Silent Majority – the bitter mediocrity itching to stick it to anyone who’d ever taken a vacation to Paris. The first month or so of the trial featured perhaps the most compromised collection of prosecution witnesses ever assembled in an American criminal case – almost to a man a group of convicted liars, paid gossip hawkers or worse…

In the next six weeks, virtually every piece of his case imploded in open court, and the chief drama of the trial quickly turned into a race to see if the DA could manage to put all of his witnesses on the stand without getting any of them removed from the courthouse in manacles.

What’s changed since then?

In Robson’s case, decades after the alleged incidents took place, he was barbecuing with Michael Jackson and his children. He was asking for tickets to the artist’s memorial. He was participating in tributes. “I still have my mobile phone with his number in it,” Robson wrote in 2009, “I just can’t bear the thought of deleting his messages.”

Then, suddenly, after twenty years, his story changed and with his new claims came a $1.5 billion dollar lawsuit.

A 30 minute rebuttal video has surfaced that exposes Wade Robson and his mother, Joy Robson’s 2016 deposition that is part of the six year legal battle with the MJ Estate. The video calls out why the accusers should not be believed, as their timeline of events does not jive with reality and factual timeline in the life of Michael Jackson.

As an eccentric, wealthy, African American man, Michael Jackson has always been a target for litigation. During the 1980s and 1990s, dozens of women falsely claimed he was the father of their children. He faced multiple lawsuits falsely claiming he plagiarized various songs. As recently as 2010, a woman named Billie Jean filed a frivolous $600 million paternity lawsuit against Jackson’s Estate.

As someone who has done an enormous amount of research on the artist, interviewed many people who were close to him, and been granted access to a lot of private information, my assessment is that the evidence simply does not point to Michael Jackson’s guilt. In contrast to Robson and Safechuck’s revised accounts, there is a remarkable consistency to the way people who knew the artist speak of him—whether friends, family members, collaborators, fellow artists, recording engineers, attorneys, business associates, security guards, former spouses, his own children—people who knew him in every capacity imaginable. Michael, they say, was gentle, brilliant, sensitive, sometimes naive, sometimes childish, sometimes oblivious to perceptions. But none believe he was a child molester.

Isabelle Petitjean (musicologue, auteur d’une thèse sur Michael Jackson), Léna Lutaud (Figaro), Richard Lecoq (spécialiste de Michael Jackson) décryptent l’image de l’artiste, écornée par les accusations de pédophilie, 10 ans après sa mort.

Isabelle Petitjean (musicologist, author of a thesis on Michael Jackson), Lena Lutaud (Figaro), Richard Lecoq (Michael Jackson Specialist) Discuss the image of the artist, chipped by accusations of pedophilia, 10 years after his death.

Translation courtesy of Twitter @Dom10155252 

Do you still enjoy listening to MJ ? that was the question asked on twitter today What’s the answer ? 73 % yes 27% no – Yes people still enjoy listening to MJ

We also have questions and how do people react to the comments of our guests ? They are sad, the word legend keeps coming back, and it’s always quite sad to talk about him again, mainly the fans are sad. Someone called Philippe notices that MJ was fabricated like a product internationnally, he wonders what’s left of his companies ? His companies ?

RL : MJ is a planetarian star, the artist who reached everybody worldwide, he toured everywhere in countries where few other went. Today we realize his legacy is managed the way it is but his image is still present, we saw it recently in Japan with an incredible campaign. I just come back from Asia and you have to search for his records because there’s none left, when they have some in stock it goes straight away.

Journalist : yes MJ’s music is still trending as well as his records sales, it has not been impacted as feared since the allegations. I now ask you Isabelle, do you think that in 10-20 years’ time what will be left of MJ is his career, his legacy and the allegations out ?

IP : surely ! I would only like to come back on the idea of the fabricated artist ! Michael Jackson is NOT a fabricated artist, he is not a product contrary to what is being said, he is a self made artist, he had the potential, he is an artist we could not do without him, and that is what bothered most, he was independent, he had the capacity and the creative genius and someone who stayed as much as possible independent. One could not take him off. A child who grew and his genius too thanks to Motown and else but he is NOT a puppet thrown in a marketing department. Actually today artists, before having a musical repertoire, they are sent to the picture department to create an image which matches a certain audience. Michael Jackson never went through that he managed his own image including his music. So I wanted to make it clear because as far as a product, it bothers my ears. And as far as what will be said about him in 10-20 years, I think that all the parasites we have now, all these people very much interested, because once again, we still are very much dealing with polemics, whether social polemics, linked to racial image or row image or single parent family that is advocated on one side and criticized when it’s him on the other side, when all passions and money extortions will be over, I think that at last we’ll be able to find out exactly what lies under the dusty iceberg and talk about his art, like a Mozart or Beethoven who also had a hectic life and about which nobody cares today. There’s so much more to say and I have the feeling that it might be a bit by laziness that we favor easy information, if one can call that information, in any case spectacular things which impact immediately the audience etc. and I think we should work more at saying interesting things because as for myself who did a thesis on him of 1200 words and haven’t finished yet, who wrote books, believe me there are much more instructive things that rhyme with work, that rhyme with respect, that rhyme with idealism with values that society advocates and for that Michael Jackson should be praised rather than being dragged in the gutters where he does not belong.

Léna Lutaud : I don’t agree at all with the extortion bit because now we don’t know what are asking the 2 accusers and if they don’t ask for money then you can’t say extortion.

RL Yes they do

LL No they don’t they asked for money in the previous suit but now we don’t know.

RL : they appealed and were dismissed

LL : no it’s not an appeal it is a new suit against the companies

RL : you don’t have the right information

IP : with a bank account in the Cayman island to cash in if ..

RL : you don’t have the right information because they seek millions.. to fight for Michael Jackson does not pay much but to sue him yes it motivates for millions of dollars. Regarding the « fabricated » part, indeed MJ starts his career at Motown where he learns the precept, being in a family environment type but little by little he will have his own vision and make it his own way.

Another question : who could succeed to Michael Jackson ?

RL : I was thinking to the WE on a vocal point of view

Journalist : His inspiration comes from MJ

RL : I say that lightly but today we are still wondering who will be the new MJ, you don’t say who will be the new Freddy Mercury, who will be the new SINATRA, the new Marylin so it shows clearly the impact he had, he is an artist who synthesized many talents in one person and who was a multi media artist before all, with Jackson we see MTV opening up, MTV is the video clip business, very different business from the music world, Thriller allowed to launch some careers like for SHADE, Cyndi Lauper or else in the 80s so this is it, who today can do that ?

IP : there was Mozart and then Beethoven, there was not Mozart 2 I mean there will not be another Michael Jackson

Journalist : I think we can’t blame Michael Jackson of being unique and remain unique forever

IP : of course all artists are unique and surely there will be new geniuses and great artists, Michael Jackson is an independent, he has his childhood, he grew up in a special era of civil rights, he is afro american in a racialized industry, you cannot copy paste, so I don’t know if that question has lucrative or business aims or if it’s really nostalgia, in both cases we can understand, there is and there will be other artists but one has to stop looking for another Michael Jackson.

RL : he is also a great humanitarian

Journalist : yes indeed since the beginning of his career he did a lot for charities, for the welfare especially for children worldwide Another question from someone called Michael, not Michael Jackson who wants to know where he is buried, of course we don’t know but he would like to know why it’s such a secret. Journalist : I’ll let you answer Léna cause maybe you are aware of where the tomb is there were leaks this morning on Europe 1 radio.

Léna : yes indeed, last time I went to LA I went to the cemetery and I asked the security and truely it was total secret, you can understand the family you don’t want to have I can imagine like Johnny Halliday in St Barth, maybe after your father or your son was exposed all his life to the media maybe he can rest in peace.

Journalist : maybe we can give more details but not reveal all, people can search on Europe 1 website

IP : It’s in LA at Forest Lawn I went there, we know exactly where he is, in the big chapel on top of the mausoleum but this chapel is closed, first it was opened but it was damaged but there’s no mystery regarding the location where he was buried, of course there are stories, the Estate also contributes to maintain this mysterious side of Michael Jackson, they create real-fake stories, in reality things are much simpler than that but it’s part of the game. You can see where he is buried, I think there are about 10 000 or 15000 roses delivered today and even each year, no real mystery Journalist : the tomb is of white marble, is 5 meters long, 3 meters wide and 2 meters high

IP : he is in the resurection chapel or saint family i can’t remember Another question : we hear often, KING, ICON, LEGEND does any artist today follow hi spath ?

Journalist : we mentionned that already maybe let’s speak about how the family manages the legacy of Michael Jackson, I want to ask you Lena I saw after Michael Jackson passed, his family wanted to find in a young audience a financial windmill to perpetuate his legacy, did they manage ?

Léna : of course, first there was the wonderful movie THIS IS IT everybody bought the DVD, and now in schools you can see that children love Michael Jackson, it is a visual universe, new generations of fans, younger generations but when I spoke to FG, owner of MJ site, he was not very happy with some of the stuff the Estate put out, he did not recognize his voice, he felt that on some videos the quality was not good enough and that the songs did not match with the Halloween theme, so he is not happy at all from an artistic point of view.

Journalist : we coming to the end of this interview, what would you like to remain of Michael Jackson forever, what the public should remember of him, whether you are a fan or not?

IP : well, not to forget that he is a human being, and beyond this huge career he had, beyond this charismatic dimension he brought and the message he spread that was erased by some entertainment, I think that Michael’s legacy goes far beyond music and dance and I hope we’ll still be here but the next generations will be the ones who will unveil him.

RL : yes I agree, there will be a before and an after MJ in music history and if I can add, he managed to live 50 years, that was not easy.

Michael Jackson – The King of Light and Love 10 Years Later

Michael Jackson fans from all over the World contemplate #10YearsWithoutMichaelJackson and How he Changed the World https://hannahkozak.wordpress.com/2019/06/25/michael-jackson-the-king-of-light-and-love-10-years-later/

Entrance to Forest Lawn – Glendale.

Forest Lawn Glendale.

June 25, 2009.  I heard the news that Michael Jackson had died as I was driving from the San Fernando Valley to Downtown Los Angeles for work. I was hired to be one of the stunt people to work in a scene on Iron Man Two.  At that point, I had been a stunt woman for 27 years.  As I drove, I tried to make sense of what I had heard yet I couldn’t make sense of it. Michael Jackson dead? I had been a fan since I was ten years old and his music was the soundtrack to my life.

The scene called for myself and two other stunt women to run away from the giant robots that were chasing the pedestrians.  The director yelled “action”.  As we were running away, one of the…

Gonna Change The World- #HonorMJ

Screen Shot 2019-06-18 at 10.26.59 PMGonna Change The World

There were no barriers Michael would not have been able to cross… His music appealed to people on all continents, from all cultural backgrounds–speaking many different languages.

Michael changed the minds, the hearts and the lives of people. Not on a superficial level–he was able to make that change by touching people with his music and performance. You can see people discovering and experiencing deep emotions while listening to him and watching him performing on stage. In fact, he communicated with them. With his art, Michael was crossing the barrier of language and space.

Humans also communicate by art. Neolithic cave paintings going back 30,000 years show a desire to express ourselves, to depict our world, to make statements as to how we perceive our world–and these paintings still talk to us across the millennia. Another means for our ancestors to express themselves was music. The oldest musical instrument known, a flute, dates back about 35,000 years. With his art, Michael was crossing the barrier of time.

But Michael did not just imagine crossing the barriers of time and space, but also boundaries between good and evil, light and dark. In Captain EO, he overcomes the terrifying Supreme Leader with his music and performance–the key to unlock her inner beauty:

“Why have you come here?” –

“To bring a gift to Your Highness, to someone as beautiful as you.” –

“You think me beautiful?” –

“Very beautiful within, Your Highness, but without a key to unlock it. And that is my gift to you.”

And with this, he starts singing and dancing and finally turns the Supreme Leader into a beautiful woman and a dark, desolate and desperate place into a serene scenery.

Michael truly believed in his heart that his music crosses the barrier of evil and changes the world for the better.

So do surrender
‘Cause the power’s deep inside my soul
Sing it
Gonna change the world, sing it
(We are here to change the world)
Gonna change the world
