Jackson's Demanding Personality On Trial

4/5/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It sounds crazy, but Michael Jackson's Coca-Cola addiction may become a building block in Dr. Conrad Murray's legal strategy.

TMZ broke the story that Dr. Murray's defense will be that Michael Jackson caused his own death by pumping a lethal dose of Propofol into his own body during the time the doctor was out of the room.

Sources familiar with the defense strategy tell us one of the missions is to show that Michael Jackson was a demanding celebrity who wanted what he wanted when he wanted it, even if it posed a danger to himself.

One of the ways the defense will prove its point is with the famous soft drink. Jackson consumed massive quantities of Coca-Cola, knowing full well it was laden with caffeine and would make it next to impossible to fall asleep.

Our sources say the defense has numerous examples of situations where Jackson hyped himself up with caffeine from soda and then used drugs -- including Propofol -- as the ultimate sleeping solution.

The upshot -- Jackson was a guy who wanted instant gratification ... so the notion that he would wake up when Dr. Murray was out of the room, become frustrated and self-medicate with Propofol is consistent with his personality.

@Tellit...please do not speak as if you know Michael Jackson or his sex life. Perhaps you don't realize that it makes you look very foolish. Perhaps you get off on belittling others, and one has to wonder what is so wrong with YOUR life that you felt the need and/or had the time to post that ridiculous comment #398. You must be a very lonely person & I'm sorry for that.

I remember sitting in class and the news that Farrah died & I was sad
for her but I also knew she was sick. and i was surprised when someone
said that Michael Jackson died. I was seriously happy. It was like a
relief that the freak that was Michael Jackson was no longer. No
longer did I have to look at is plastic surgery deformed, feminized
face. No longer did we as a society have to endure his lies, his
desperate attempts at making it seem like he wasn't absolutely crazy.
His anger outbursts at people like Tommy Mottola and his crazy antics
like dangling babies out of windows. NO more boys are going to have
to endure that child molester's "Jesus juice" or sleeping in bed with
that freak. No longer will we have to pretend he wasn't a deeply
closeted homosexual. I find it incredibly funny that anyone would
even for a second, entertain the thought that he was a heterosexual.
Michael Jackson was an extremely effeminate, shy around girls, deeply
closed homosexual. He wore wigs and makeup, eyeliner and lipstick and
fake eyelashes. he was basically one step away from being a drag
queen.
I'm glad the madness is over. None of the other jackson even have
careers anymore. I mean maybe Janet has a slight career but she will
never be as popular as she was in 1989- 1993. It's over for Janet and
it sure as Hell is over for Michael Jackson. I am SURE that his own
boys are spared from being molested by him.

In Was Michael Jackson A Pedophile? we dismissed the idea that
Michael Jackson was gay and the unlikeliness of his being a clinical
pedophile along with being an autogynephile. So what was he?

The idea behind erotic identity disorders—that sometimes the
sexual object can be inverted into the self—was first proposed by
two important Canadian sexual scientists, Kurt Freund and Ray
Blanchard. In their seminal paper, they focused on a series of real
cases of pedophilic sex offenders who each appeared to be erotically
aroused by the idea that they were children. Two of the pedophiles
enjoyed putting on boys' gym clothes and pretending to be boys, while
masturbating. Another fantasized about being a 10 year old boy
whenever he fondled children. Another requested a consultation with a
plastic surgeon in order to make his penis look more childlike. These
men might be called "autopedophiles." Like autogynephiles (who want
to become women and are attracted to women) and apotemnophiles (who
want to become amputees and are attracted to amputees),
autopedophiles have the sexual desire to become what they love,
namely children.

Freund and Blanchard noted that none of the pedophiles they studied
had erotic identity disorders as intense as typical autogynephiles
do.
They speculated that perhaps "aspirations of paedophiles who wish
that
they could be children are simply more limited by surgical
realities."

The night of Michael Jackson's death, one television news show
focused briefly on Jackson's nose. A commentator speculated that the
evolution of Michael Jackson's nose was unconsciously motivated to
reduce physical similarity with his father's. In its final form the
disastrous nose was indeed very different from his father's (and his
own, original) nose, but that speculation ignores the equally odd
remainder of Michael's face. I am not expert enough in plastic
surgery to speculate about the precise procedures that Jackson had,
but one only has to look at a chronicle of the evolution of his face
to be convinced that the surgeries were vast. Indeed, his autopsy
report declared that he had had at least 13 plastic surgeries.

Normal people would hate to look like Michael Jackson did near the
end of his life, and so normal people tend to assume that the
surgeries were a series of big, compounded mistakes that Jackson must
have regretted. Bad plastic surgery surely happens. But when it does,
it is generally recognizable as a poor rendition of an aesthetically
pleasing goal. Not so, Michael Jackson's face, which resembled
nothing in the actual human, living world. Moreover, it has seemed to
me that there was something coherent about the redesign of his
face—coherent, not normal—suggesting that there was method in his
madness. If so, the 13 surgeries may be explained by something other
than 13 different errors of judgment.

Even if Michael Jackson's face had never seen a scalpel, even if one
were simply to listen to an audiotape of him talking (not singing),
one would have to conclude that he was one strange dude. The high,
breathy voice with the hyper-sincere tone was not his natural manner
of speech. Reportedly, when he got mad or surprised, he manifested a
"big deep voice." This suggests that the former, his public voice,
was an affectation.

The face and the voice were both unnatural, and he went to a lot of
trouble to have them. What was he trying to say and show with them?
He
told us, quite directly, the most likely answer.

"I am Peter Pan," he said, more than once. He lived in Neverland.
His second wife, Debbie Rowe, said that in order to get in the mood
to have sex with her, Jackson dressed up as Peter Pan and danced
around the bedroom. She said: "It made him feel romantic."

Jackson and I are about the same age, and I remember the Disney
cartoon Peter Pan quite vividly. According to Wikipedia, in the
Disney cartoon "Peter appears to be in late childhood, between 10 and
13 years old." I recently reexamined the cartoon version of Peter
Pan, and sure enough, some of the facial features matched: the nose,
for example. Peter Pan had pointed ears. Sure enough, a photograph
of Jackson exists showing an ear that was described as "mangled by
plastic surgery" but looks like it just might be a surgeon's attempt
at pointy.

Some things don't quite match between Michael and Peter, however.
Cartoon Peter Pan's voice was more masculine than Jackson's public
voice. (Jackson's voice is more similar to Mary Martin's, the woman
who played Peter Pan on Broadway and in a television special.) And
Jackson's long hair—apparently a wig over a nearly bald scalp—is
a clear non-match.

Am I suggesting Michael Jackson was a hom

"Our sources say the defense has numerous examples of situations where Jackson hyped himself up with caffeine from soda and then used drugs -- including Propofol -- as the ultimate sleeping solution."

The defense is trying to make this sound like Michael first took amphetamine and then downers, a well-known pattern amongst some drug addicts.

But Michael Jackson was not that kind of addict, so they can't say that. A soda - if he took it - is not in any way equivalent to amphetamine, and to quite a lot of people it won't keep them awake.

So Michael may have had a soda and - gasp - maybe even a cup of coffee, and then he took the sedatives he would have taken anyway, since he was an insomniac.

What next? I've seen in several clips that Michael used chewing gum. Maybe they can use that?

MJ was a pedophile who raped little boys. He also died from a drug overdose from drugs he was addicted to for 20 + years. He was also having poor health leading up to his death...leaving Mj in a room full of drugs and sedatives is like leaving crack with a crackhead of course he injected himself. HE WAS AN ADDICT!
