MJ Fans: Oprah's Molestation Show Is No 'Coincidence'

11/3/2010 8:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An official MJ fan group ain't buying Oprah's "purely coincidental" excuse -- telling us, they are "angry and disappointed" that she's airing her interview with MJ's kids days after a special on child molestation.

A rep for the Official Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California tells TMZ, “We are both angry and disappointed in Oprah’s constant need to reference child molestation shows prior to airing Michael Jackson related episodes.  Her tone seems to speak volumes.”

Oprah called the whole thing "purely coincidental" ... but MJ fans aren't convinced. The rep adds, “How can something so obvious be a coincidence?"

As we previously reported, Oprah's big interview with Michael Jackson's children is scheduled to air next Monday -- three days after Friday's big show ... entitled "200 Adult Men Who Were Molested Come Forward."

dude, what ? I didn't take the time to research this ****. Okay? I'm not even a real fan. I enjoyed a few of his songs and I did enjoy watching him dance but I'm not some mega stan for Michael Jackson. I just think if his mom and children were nice enough to give an interview to her big old bubble but then she should at least have a little tiny amount of respect for them . even if she thinks MJ is a sicko.

It's only an issue because he was a creepy molester who bought his way out of trouble. If he was as innocent as some of you appear to believe he is it would be a non issue what show she aired next. Good grief.

The Meaning of Being a Genius

"I was at a commemorative gathering at O2 arena (the altar where Michael Jackson was supposed to hold his resurrection concerts) watching the farewell ceremony in Los Angeles. When you understand how pervasive mediocrity is in any society, you would spare nothing in honouring the geniuses. And Michael was one with Jacqueline Du Pre, Bobby Fischer, Kafka, Nietzsche, Rimbaud, Sartre, Picasso, Mozart- all masters of high arts. He started out as a child prodigy with Jackson 5 until he was fed up, went solo and in 1979 released Off The Wall. Again, he refused to let people decide his boundaries. He put on one glove, pulled up his trousers, donned military jackets and the rest was war. He announced the stars were his new frontiers. With Thriller in 1982, he turned all barriers of race, colour, class, sex, upbringing into a long ladder and touched the stars. He never came back. From there, he revolutionalised entertainment. Before Obama, he was the most famous face on earth. Ronald Reagan had to invite Michael to the White House. He and his wife were shocked and awed by his story. Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant mentioned at the memorial service, Michael made it possible for them to earn their shirts as blacks in LA Lakers. Michael was that genetic engineer who tortured the racist gene in MTV and other media outlets to accept the richness of black music as worthy. They owe Micheal for teaching them what the future would look like. He was that Moses who said there’s nothing that cannot be done if we raise our voice as one. He freed the young of all colours to connect in a way that later placed a black man in the White House.

Geniuses cannot let the world be as. Their thinking does not accept rules as they are set up. In the end, you cannot save yourself by thinking alone but if you really think and practice very well, the least of the consolation prizes is the world. Like all geniuses, Michael studied the masters and practice daily for impossible hours until his songs and dance became supernatural extensions of his body cells. They incarnated his irrepressible spirit. Michael created a musical genre that could neither be called afro, jazz, metallic, rock, soul, R&B. The society with its compulsive disorder to categorise called them pop. I call them gut music. What about his dance steps? The moonwalk, that inimitable dance sequence of moving backward yet creating the illusion of moving forward. It was as if he had anticipated what *****ia would be doing. Michael did cyclonic pirouettes better than Nijinsky or Nureyev. He could stand on his toes in loafers better than Martha Graham did in her ballet shoes. He shimmied and swivelled better than James Brown and Jackie Wilson. He moved his limbs in a blitz of static electricity that reduced all masters to nothing.

From birth we should uphold the right of geniuses to be weird with impunity. Unfortunately, Michael got an unfair share of punishment not empathy from his disciplinarian father. Watch Jackson’s choreography very well as he passionately gathered every inch of the stage into a terrifying logic of his dance moves. They were influenced by the wild movements of his limbs as he tried to dodge severe beatings from his father when he was young. Where others see severity, geniuses see possibilities. Wonder how many *****ian children are being beaten severely and carted off for deliverance just because they could not help acting strange? How many turned those beatings into economic theories? How many see that abusive father as PDP?

Geniuses have no time for sanity. They prefer ideas to normality. They are not of us. They are just en route since they do not belong here. While others are fighting for lands and possessions to stake their claim on earth, geniuses are fighting gravity to capture the skies. They prefer immortality to grounded comforts. They do not pray for long life because they do not reckon time they way we do. Flannery O'Connor with her life-threatening disease went on pilgrimage to Lourdes not for healing but for the novel she was writing. Of what use is long life to geniuses when that life does not spark game-changing ideas? That is why all their works are everlasting arguments for rapturous beauty.

Success is very busty; it attracts fans and rapists. Because of their fame and weirdness, geniuses are very vulnerable to scandals. People who are gifted at nothing, who contribute nothing to the society, out of jealousy make it their evangelical mission to pull them down. Since they cannot touch heaven, they raise hell. These people are all over in every society. Micheal outsang his cynics, he outdanced his doubters. He thrived on their turmoil and in Billie Jean, turned his enemies into assets."


"The American playwright Tennessee Williams wrote an essay, The Catastrophe of Success, ten years before Michael was conceived. He said if you are not psychologically, morally or emotionally prepared for success and it just happened, you shall crack. And a genius is someone who is never prepared because biologically he/she has an adult’s brain in a child’s body. How can a young body handle the pressures of a worldwide 24/7 paparazzi?"

I wonder if MJ's fan club would be more comfortable with the term,"Drug addict" instead? That term is a factual way of characterizing the former 'King of Pop.' Jackson used drugs on a regular basis,kept them in his house with his children present. It was the leading cause of his early demise.Dead drug addict would be a better way to characterize Michael Jackson.

The child molestation show features Tyler Perry and was timed to promote his new movie (For Colored Girls) which also opens on Friday - the same day as the show. I don't think the timing had anything to do with the Jackson interview. Leave it to the Jacksons to assume the entire world revolves around them.

Besides, if MJ is truly as innocent as he and his wacko fans claim that he is then what is the problem?

well i think this was done on purpose but imo this time it doesn't have any thing to do with oprah thinking mj is guilty.

everything oprah does is geared toward keeping her name and face in the press, getting ratings and making money for...oprah.....,not the little people she supposedly cares about in third world countries..
look at her audience , if u dont have the right zip code , u dont get tickets to that show..

when the soccer moms have a change of heart so will oprah...

this is her last season and i have seen her name written all over a.o.l. and tmz , ,like its a public bathroom...hey , come to think of it..lol..but i digress..anyway..

she needs attn and what better way to stir the pot then piss off mj fans..
think back people and count the times you have seen her name mentioned on this site this year...a lot ,
last year , not so much..
it is her own p.r. people working with tmz, they want hits , she wants ratings..
and they both crap all over michael and make a fortune doing so,,
that being said oprah is not the only guilty party.

the jackson imo have no business putting those kids on tv to make money for the family or oprah..
i think justice will be a passing remark, possibly due to editing ..
buti bet we dont hear much , it will be more drug talk like lmp..
as far as the kids go..
i really dont care if its their idea.
because if they are capable of making adult decisions like that what do they need the jacksons for.
maybe one of them will file for emancipation when the time comes if they are making adult decisions at this age, y not?
but for the time being mj wishes should have been respected and they obviously were not.
they seemed to have even mislead some family members regarding putting these kids on.
i really hope i am wrong but oprahs past actions regarding mj are all over youtube.if it backfires on the jacksons they have no one to blame but themselves

MJlover    

the only reason Oprah believes MJ was a child molester was because she was molested two times in her life (maybe even three) so she doesnt trust anyone. The way Mj acted clearly set her belief that he was. Oh and Mj wasnt a pedo because jordan chandler confessed it was all a lie and that he was forced to say all that garbage from his father who was messed up in the head. father commited suicide after the confession. they were all after his money obviously. mj didnt even sleep in the same bed. mj's room was 2 bedrooms in one! so he slept some where else in the room and never hurt those kids. so STFU mj haters because you've been wrong about mj the whole time. it takes a crazy ass guy to make some great music like mj did

The fact that MJ's children are the focus of the interview and they have been I'm sure unknowingly played by the Big O is nothing less than glossed over bullying.

I'm not a crazy MJ fan but do not believe that humilating the children right or moral. The are kids and had nothing to do with whatever their father did or did not do.

For someone who built their fame on empathy and the power of the human spirit, it's a shame that with all the wealth, fame and power Oprah has built, she feels the need to reach so low.

Truly digusting and shows what has become her true colors.

My favorite South Park epi "Mr. Jefferson" should be seen by everyone defending Michael Jackson, it concisely states what was so wrong about M.J.'s behavior, even if he never molested anyone. Why do so many people defend Michael Jackson so much? Who cares?
