If MJ had not died, Farrah Fawcett still would not have been included in the tribute.

Access Hollywood dissed Michael Jackson for being included in the Oscar tribute when Farrah Fawcett was not included. Billy Bush made fun ofMJ being included saying "at least he was in Men in Black" when his co host said "Why was Michael Jackson included?". All they are doing is being mean and showing their ignorance at why MJ's career. I thought Billy Bush was very disrespectful especially since MJ is dead and it is not his fault FF was excluded. How quickly they forget that his movie TII just made $250 million at the box office and he performed Ben at the Oscars when it was nominated for an academy award. Also Thriller was inducted into the National Film Institute. MJ was a producer, director, actor etc in addition to choreographer, singer, dancer and composer. He deserved to be mentioned in the tribute on his own merit. You can complain to Access Hollywood on their website. At the bottom of the page there is a link that says "contact" and you can fill it out and send it in.

92-lee lee, they seemed to be geniune in there statements especially when they were asked about the kids, they were crying, obviously all these men had a very good and sincere relationship with michael. i have to say i believe what they were saying.they were one of the chosen few that got to see michael in the worst and best times of his last 2yrs, and i am sure it will be an experience they will never forget in there lifetimes. they truly want the public to see michael as a human being and not just as a great entertainer!!! jmo- sue from tampa

Lee lee --

MJ controlled all the money, and therefore had all the power, yet refused to acknowledge family members (at least some of the time) according to the bodyguards. Remember, the body guards were with MJ for the last two years, so they had to have been referring to that timespan when they said family members did not come around 'often', but that if they did, MJ would ask if they had an appointment and did not always see them.

They also said they did not think MJ had a drug problem. He seemed intoxicated 'sometimes', but not often enough for them to consider that a "problem".

Randy must have been very angry to blow past security with his car and demand to see MJ (who even then refused). What does this tell you?

In a video I watched recently, Frank DiLeo told All Good, who first approached him about MJ touring with his brothers, 'that's not going to happen'. Imagine, this family feeling that their fortunes rested on MJ, they were dependent on him, yet he would not deal with them. There must have been a lot of frustration there, and assigning of blame, and and anger.

After MJ died, I was struck by two visuals, one of Joe doing a Happy Dance a few days later, and two brothers (at least I think it was -- the clip is on youtube) pulling up to his Holmby Hills manse in the Range Rover, both grinning and making jokes with one of the fans. A brother dying doesn't mean one has to wear a shroud and smear oneself with ashes, but, My God, these public displays were just wrong. Actually, my jaw dropped when I saw that. Where's the morality? Where's the humanity? Did they not care? Why did MJ's death appear to be a cause for celebration? And isn't it ironic. The only time his brothers and sisters probably saw the inside of that home was after MJ had passed.

Post-death, to paint MJ as a "close" brother whom they dearly miss seems to me to be disingenuous. These must have been very complex relationships.

I am sure there is a lot more to be told, but the small details these men can provide may help us to unravel the true story of Michael's last years.

The bodyguard also hinted that Dr. Murray may not be the only one to blame. My impression was they were referring to other doctors, not necessarily a conspiracy, though others may read something else into it.

But the most telling of all, was the statement they made about all the celebrities at MJ's memorial, where, looking around the room they said to themselves, where were you when he needed you?

IS THIS A JOKE??!!! REALLY!?!    

You know ever since Michael died he's been on this freakin site, day in and day out. I hated the man, I thought he made good music, but I can't stand behind a child abuser. I have just normally scanned by these stories, but for some reason today I read it and then read over most of the comments. Are you kidding me? All of you freaks are still on here defending him, some saying he's still alive, you need to get the word out or he's with the angels. What????? If you believe in that, he is in hell....SUFFERING just like all those children did. He smiled still even with all the hate because he knew he could just go home and still live in his fantasy land and abuse those most precious. You all need to give it up, seriously, he was a horrible, horrible, bad man. Just stop already!

We're not all nuts, as you seem to believe. There are a lot of people who do not take anyone's word for what happened. We do not believe the media reports, we do not BELIEVE. We want to know things for ourselves. There are a LOT of unanswered questions. It's a search for the truth. If anything is going to break the media's stranglehold on a brainwashed public, it will be MJ's legacy. The truth will come out. You need to reserve judgment until that time. The path you choose is just too easy, too facile. We don't yet 'know' much of anything.

Jacko WAS wacko    

More Spin doctors hired by the Jackson family to try to protray their freak as a normal guy. Michael didn't have any women in the back seat of a car. he woudln't know hwat to do with a woman if he got his hands on one. He was so awkward and afraid around women. HE WAS A DEEPLY CLOSETED HOMOSEXUAL. IT'S OBVIOUS TO MOST OF AMERICA. HIS WEIRDO FANS WILL BELIEVE WHATEVER THE JACKSON SAY BUT THEY ARE ALL LIARS. HE WAS AN EXTREMELY EFFEMMINIATE MAN, WHO WORE FALSE EYELASHES, MAKEUP, LIPSTICK, WIGS, ETC. HE WAS A DEEPLY CLOSETED HOMOSEXUAL. if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, chances are it;s duck. The fans can believe and live in denial all they want but MICHAEL JACKSON WAS A CLOSET HOMOSEXUAL. IT IS OBVIOUS TO MOST FO AMERICA. The Jacksons aren't fooling anyone, even themselves. Deep inside his mother knows he was gay. His father too which is why his father was so harsh with him. Thought he could beat the gay right out of him. And Im sure the straight porn found at Neverland was so Jackson could give it to the young boys to arouse them. It certainly wasn't b/c Michael Jackson was enjoying it.
