Go that route.
So what I'm saying here.
Is we have to look at the big picture and back to those -- allegations.
One thing that they go Michael for sure -- one ever came themselves.
Because of -- George Michael was convicted -- Elton John Boy George holds it against them.
But because of the color of the skin Michael Jackson coming.
Major red -- expert.
And you have to look at the big picture.
With -- And welcome -- -- that's what he feared we that we can and we can't look at the hypothetical assists but he answer -- he was always the bit bitter.
You don't like George Michael get away with this but Elton John Boy George.
-- -- new treatment on why in Japan.
Thinner and and.
You know well that's the question put out there unfortunately there's a lot of homophobia.
That's still pervades Hollywood the music industry.
In fact the rap industry there was a great book last year written by -- being called avoiding apple about all these gay rap artists who -- in the closet.
There's obviously a sociological.
Reasons for that and I think it boils down to racism even though we're at 2009.
We have an African American president.
We still have a long way to go in a lot of racial -- Yeah there was that your -- that it -- well from -- that there is very telling as well about his concerns about -- fact that he also was very much.
Wrapped up -- -- -- Elvis.
And the fact that.
Right here for example.
He wasn't easy wasn't sleeping when he -- lead he had nightmares it's going to -- -- hurdles he was deeply worried that he's going to disappoint -- He is that something that making predicting -- -- assignments that he was worried that he is going to and the like Elvis.
He was always -- -- as long as I knew him but there was something -- -- let me see if you want to die he was tired of life Eva.
His voice and dance moves -- there anymore I think maybe -- and and parents -- found himself on stage this is from one of the members household staff who.
Talk to you about that.
But yet on the video that we see.
It seems as though he had some energy there that he was you know in good spirits.
You know part of that tour thing you know.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The same people.
Who have said that repeatedly.
That he's fully healthy.
I know people who were at that video shoot who I've talked to.
Have you talked to anyone at that video -- I think -- personally talk to them but -- And what -- -- hear you.
More than this choreographers -- -- This was not the Michael Jackson Hole and I urge you to look closely at that video.
His moves were out of seeing he was sluggish this is not a model works that's according to -- choreographers and -- what that one -- -- where.
Well it'd show just a little bit of it and and it.
-- talk about profiteering -- I mean Michael Jackson's worth much more dead than -- to these folks because if you want that on the concerts is thought for the book plane tickets stolen device.
On British national TV on the biggest show in the UK the biggest records show recently the day he announced this comeback.
I said don't -- tickets why.
It's not gonna happen so I won't buy my plane tickets he's in no physical shape or mental.
To do these fifty concerts and urged his handlers.
Instead of flying him to London in getting him under the spotlight.
Of the media.
To check him into a hospital and take care of his -- everyone ignored me they vilified.
Well let's ask you a lot of the reaction to -- you do they say you're you know.
You're outflanked even if you're talking about what -- -- -- presented evidence that you knew from people who.
They said the concerts will go on and they can.
They were just shocked that I made those -- we're also hearing for example that.
-- as opposed to fifty and that when he fifties but -- it yet and thought he had a lot of concerns because he thought the ten concerts.
Don't forget the only reason lawyer Michael agree to these shows was the clears that.
He's hundreds of million dollars in the -- And he needed something he's such -- building folder here but because.
Perfectionist that line.
You know -- do -- one last time people.
That special magic because there -- so important man.
His image was so well that's what about what he got and -- and the fact that he outlined to prove it still hurts him that he had.
Originally the he.
Was wary of the very wary of the fifty dates at first it was -- as -- -- than it was 31 and then was fifty.
Quickly he realized.
He was incapable.
Of Newton shows.
And he didn't want to disappoint on only his children his fans this -- is one of the greatest artists we've ever seen.
He's a student of our you know you -- Michael Jackson.
A lot of people -- saying posthumously.
That he reinvented pop music and Andy's the king of music Michael Jackson.
Would be the first person to tell you that's the furthest thing from the truth he was a real student of -- He studied people like Michelangelo.
Picasso Da Vinci but he also studying the great artists.
Like Louis Armstrong Muddy Waters.
Little -- Fats Domino he looked at these people religiously.
He listened to their music.
Any videos he -- get of them and he paid homage to them.
He always acknowledged that all he did was take their work to another level.
I've got -- email here in some of them.
-- Douglas Johnson is saying it had nothing to do discrimination the other artists you make it -- -- they were not what they look like a list providers will -- -- taken maker Michael maintenance.
It was discrimination that's the easy -- the reality is many people do not mean.
With the homosexual lifestyle that's what that's what that -- -- again -- -- with all due respect.
To this viewer Doug.
This is in Michael Jackson's words.
This is according to him the people around this campus and to say there was no discriminate nation for African American artists in the music industry.
Is completely false -- anyone who's been in the industry that to say.
To come out as an African American artists than to pronounce the the world the world's number one artists that your date now c'mon let's wake up here Michael Jackson always spear.
And was always.
-- -- that people like George Michael Bolton Jong Boy George they can get away with this all.
They could have like Boy George was convicted sorry George Michael was convicted.
But people they turned -- blind Michael Jackson was acquitted.
People thought he was guilty.
You've got to look.
Here this is a blatant case of discrimination.
Lack of education but people.
And it's as the -- the old saying goes when you go to the court of.
Sometimes seeking justice you see just us.
In my -- yes and I am I talked to him about it but what was his response only news you're putting it together.
-- -- and he was skeptical.
When he found the note from my sources that it's gonna be positive and fear.
He became more involved.
Up trees also.
Five years with -- -- relationship because so much of what you know we hear tortured relationship yes.
You're always -- -- the trial today.
Of course people take him right now and sometimes my personal opinion rightly so.
Because Stevens for profit off this.
-- and dad and concerns about the children that's -- -- personal.
Apparently -- in the world trying to profit but that's.
That's that's -- with all due respect.
I mean yeah.
People who do -- -- -- and respect it's very fair moment in.
What the real answer those orders have -- -- Quite urged the Jackson family.
To take this step back.
They have made some grave errors since Michael as though Joe's -- and -- once -- there he's starting his own record label.
Yes he's already indicated he wants the sign.
Some of the children and possibly put them on tour this is not the time to be making those decisions.
What has to happen here right now it's the following in the stable.
Comfortable environment for those three precious children that's where their energy should be focused right now.
-- -- making these outrageous public statements.
Not selling their stories to the paper again on one hand they say they've been -- strange for him for years on the other hand they come forward and -- stories is that they're the closest person to have something -- not adding up.
Like -- -- urge the people close to the Jackson family ends.
The LE PD and also told -- -- to please step here.
Make the right decision there's three young -- And well that house them at that part.
-- and there's been a couple of Jackson members who have expressed concern.
Both the children going with the Jackson -- mainly because of the intention to Jackson.
To exploit the children the way he did Michael in an entertainment.
Her parents -- -- expressed that -- I respect my sources in other people sources when they come forward but in the final in the final years of what was that can give you some sense of what it was like between the two of them because obviously from that.
And a couple of interviews O'Brien -- here he talked about how his wife being the president's father made me.
And the fact that his father was a brown.
A lot in the when that.
That's true Michael do a lot of ambivalence.
-- -- -- Again his father -- use them as secure.
You -- us the school principal law school principal where Michael and marlin and that school apparently.
Joe would sometimes be -- in front of everyone in the school.
It emotionally -- and this is linked to.
Again the gay delegations.
Why he wouldn't come out Michael was very afraid.
And when -- abused as a kid.
To have reservations.
About people around you.
What -- With all due respects.
To Michael Jackson.
No matter what happens.
And he's made some statements as you -- -- a 100% correct.
But he's still deep down love this -- Michael Jackson.
Never wanted to.
Any hatred -- -- He always try to overcome let's look at what point in going through the Jordan Chandler case.
All -- obtain the court documents.
Stating clearly that Michael was forced by the insurance company to settle.
Michael was livid and he -- and -- to me he maintained his innocence.
He wanted to stand up.
He said he was being -- you -- the victim of false charges and extortion.
And he was sports.
This was one instance where it was very difficult for him to Roy's backup but it.
Michael Jackson no matter what came his way and the law -- is much more than most people in life.
He always seem to -- up and keep going forward.
