This is a beautiful man. This is a gorgeous man. And make no mistake; he is a man. Not a child. Not an adult. And he is wonderful.

About two weeks before the premiere,Jackson called Branca and,hyperventilating and speaking in a halting voice,ordered him to destroy the negative of “Thriller.” After much cajoling he revealed the reason for his decision. “He said the Jehovah’s Witnesses heard he was doing a werewolf video,” Branca recalls. “They told him that it promoted demonology and they were going to excommunicate him.” Branca conferred with Folsey and Landis,and all agreed that the “Thriller” negative had to be safeguarded.Landis immediately removed the film canisters from the lab and delivered them to Branca’s office,where they were locked up.
Next,according to Landis,he got a call from Jackson’s security chief,Bill Bray,who reported that the singer had been in his room with the door locked for three days,refusing to come out.Landis drove to the Encino estate. “Bill and I kicked in the door,knocked it down,and Michael was lying there.He said, ‘I feel so bad.’ I said, ‘Michael,have you eaten?’ He hadn’t eaten.It was weird.I just said, ‘Look,I want you to see a doctor right now.’ ”
Landis returned to see Jackson the next day and found him at Frank DiLeo’s house,a few blocks from the Encino estate,in a more cheerful state.He apologized for issuing the order to destroy “Thriller”: “I’m sorry,John.I’m embarrassed.” Landis then informed the star that his directive had been ignored. “I said, ‘Michael,I wouldn’t let it be destroyed.’ He went, ‘Really? Because I think it’s really good.’ I go, ‘Michael,it’s great and you’re great.’ ”
Still,Jackson was concerned about the video’s content.Branca,desperate to mollify his client,invented a ruse. “I said, ‘Mike,did you ever watch Bela Lugosi in Dracula?’ He goes, ‘Why?’ I said, ‘Do you know that he was a devout Christian?’ I was just making it up.And I said, ‘Did you ever notice there were,like,disclaimers on those movies?’ He goes, ‘No.’ ‘So,Michael,before we destroy this film,let’s put a disclaimer on it saying that this does not reflect the personal convictions of Michael Jackson.’ ‘Oh!’ He liked it.” Problem solved.Says Landis, “You know, what’s wonderful about Michael—this is where genius comes in.No matter how wacky something was,it always had some amazing benefit.That disclaimer caused a lot of talk,and it generated a lot of interest.”

I’m just like,
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 (Michael Jackson), 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 juge 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. The insecurity of Michael made him have bad surgery. That does not make him a criminal. The true criminals are the plastic surgeon who took advantage of his weakness for their financial benefit. They did a bad job without ethics. Michael was a strange guy for a lot of people because of its 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 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.
