You seriously believe that republicans are not on welfare?! Idiot!!! lol! Republicans only believe in handouts and preferential treatment for themselves! Corporate welfare, greed, offshore accounts, and highest number of married white men secretly having affairs with other men, while parading in country clubs in their pink lily pulitzer shorts, lmao! Continue to live in denial, lady! If I could show you all the pictures of foot tappers who live in wealthy suburbs with their families, but meet me in hotel bathrooms for lunch, you would die.

BTW, I live in a conservative part of St Louis, and most of the men I frequent seek me out while they carry on their FACADE OF A STRAIGHT LIFE in the exclusive country clubs, sad for you, you will never know it.

Kind of like when Rush Limbaugh attacked the minorities for being associated with drugs, when he was an addict all along, lmao.

Stick with your fantasy, lady.

Republicans are the BIGGEST WELFARE CROOKS OUT THERE!

In spite of his pain, MJ had dignity, and relentlessly continued to bring the world happiness through powerful and uplifting music.
May he rest in peace.

If Michael Jackson had not agreed to do the Victory Tour with his brothers this probably would not have happened to him. Why after 25 years is this video just now surfacing?

Because they are trying to show how severe Michael was burned and how this incident probably fueled his addiction to prescription pain killers. He had to have skin grafts and reconstructive surgery to repair his scalp. This is why he wore wigs, his hair never grew back, obiviously. Also, this was the start of the plastic surgery, beside the fact that he also fracured his nose at one point.

Saying that if Michael hadn't done the Victory tour this would not have happened is a moot point.
It was an accident. You can't live in a bubble all your life fearing something bad is going to happen.
You could walk out your front door and get hit by a car, does that mean you shouldn't have left the house?
