MJ Tribute Concert

Gene Simmons to Perform

Despite Calling MJ a Pedophile

8/15/2011 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson Tribute Concert
Pretty ironic -- Gene Simmons, who called Michael Jackson a hard-core pedophile, will perform at the MJ Tribute Concert.

Katherine Jackson was on CNN this AM, talking about the concert, when promoters revealed that KISS would be performing.

Yet Gene Simmons went on record last year -- mind you, a year after MJ died -- saying, "There is no question in my mind he molested those kids.  Not a doubt."

Simmons went on to say, "The only sexual references ever made about Michael Jackson that were made by anyone, anywhere around the world, have always been made by kids, and specifically males usually 10 to 14 years of age; never females, that age or older, and never grown men."

Hate the man.  Love the music.

I am disappointed in Gene Simmons to agreeing to this concert to honor MJ. I believe that MJ was a pedophile just look at his past behavior and all of the reports of it you would be a fool to believe that he didn't do anything.

We have to remember that Michael was hounded by girls even before he hit puberty, and that it continued all his life. If the rabbi is to be believed, MJ told him that he would get letters from fans on a daily basis, telling him in detail what they would ‘do to him’ if given the chance! So, it’s possible that this constant availability of potential sexual partners, led Michael to devalue sex. When you feel under attack, it’s normal to develop a ‘siege mentality’. To put it another way, maybe he only wanted sex within a loving monogamous relationship.
------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Jackson chose Lisa Marie Presley to be his wife and one and only sexual partner but unfortunately she refused to stay married to him because she had doubts about his love for her since her family was telling her he was using her to get access to Elvis' music catalogue. I wish Michael had found the girl of his dream, the real love of his life here on Earth. But his fame prevented him from finding that girl.

Why would Katherine do this????? She's adamant about protecting Michael from people like this! Maybe she's been around Jermaine and Latoya too long!

Fact is you don't pay out millions to a kid who accuses you of molesting him, unless you want to shut him up.

So are you Sunshine. You know as much about truth as does that Crocodile Gene Simmons. You MJ haters make me sick. The truth can be found in all the files which eventually freed MJ in addition to the confessions of his accusers. You MJ haters deliberately refuse to accept the truth for what it is and for the evidence has shown. Those former MJ haters had enough common sense to do their own investigations and found out the truth, but then again for people like you Sunshine and your organization of MJ haters, sense is not so common, For God Sakes, let the man be. It is people like you Sunshine, and I think you have given yourself a name that certainly does not suit your type. It is people like you and that Gene Simmons that makes the earth so toxic. No one wants to hear that old decrepit senile freak nor you. Do MJ and the rest of us a favour and step off the freaking planet, and DO NOT RETURN!!!

Whilst you are at it (i.e. exiting planet earth) you can take Cleveland Gal and the rest of your organization and fan club of MJ haters with you. Make sure you also take along Gene Simmons. He contributes nothing worthwhile to the planet anyway and CERTAINLY CANNOT SING. He will NEVER be able to stand in MJ's shoes, so Simmons, JEALOUSY WILL GET YOU NO WHERE but to the same organization of MJ haters. No one wants to hear your lousy bad sounding poor excuse for music anyway. Show me where you ever contributed to helping humanity far less children. To constantly spew venom and disrespect towards someone who was so humble and caring and INNOCENT of false charges laid against him, is mind blowing, but God is not sleeping. You see you MJ haters never imagined the love that so many millions of people both young and old on a global scale had for our beloved MJ. Guess what fools, the positive energy channeled towards MJ far outweighs the hatred and jealousy you continue to spew on a daily basis. That's why people continue to and will always continue to love and admire MJ. MJ we LOVE you unconditionally,and no amount of hatred will overshadow that love that the multi millions have for you dearest one.

I wouldn't be suprised if MJ's "father" was responsible for this whole issue. That old man seems to be nothing more than a greedy old jerk who has absolutely no respect for his family. Joe was probably behind the invite.

Gene Simmons is a PIG and has no room to talk about anyone. First of all, the first boy's discription of Michael DID NOT match and he himself has come forth and said his father made him do it. The second boy was proven to be a total liar and was just after money after Michael did so much for him and his family. These were just bad people who took advantage o*****iving and caring man. Let him RIP and "Just Leave Him Alone"

and that is why he wants to be in MJ's Tribute Concert.

Michael delt heavily in fantasy. Michael Jackson used LMP. He wanted a child with the daughter of Elvis Presley. All this gibberish that he was a virgin on his wedding day and so committed to LMP is a bunch of hogwash. The man collected porn..(so what). He had religious convictions....I agree. committed to his wife?....you've got to be kidding me. Michael had no concept of that. Michael did not respect the boundaries of LMP's marriage to Danny. Michael wanted what he wanted.
Besides if Michael was so pure and wanted to wait for marriage, why on earth would he select a divorced woman with two children. What virgin does something like that? If Micheal was a 35 year old virgin, I'd think he'd marry a virgin as well. Not someone else's worn out from recent child birth bride......pleazzzzz wake up people...........I LOVE MICHAEL JACKSON LIKE NO OTHER......BUT PLEASE SPARE ME THE GENTIL ONE WOMAN FAITHFUL AND TRUE HUSBAND NONSENSE. THE MARRIAGE WAS REAL IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD. SO WAS MICHAEL'S INFIDELITY.........GET REAL!!! MICHAEL BROKE UP LMP'S MARRIAGE AND FAMILY.....THERE'S NO OTHER WAY TO CALL THAT ONE......

BTW: I'm not mad at LMP......Michael was worth it....

Ladies? don't act like you would not have followed him around the world under any conditions......or would have settle to be his lady in waiting when he was in your town.......some of you know better........sssssh

The shame is that people like Gene Simmons always get a platform from the media side to talk about the ugly things they are doing in their lifes.
Drugs, alcohol, Sex Addiction, brawls, demolished hotel rooms or 10 times married and such people can proud talk about their "heroic deeds", although they don't give anything positive for the public, espacially children and teens, who need positive visions for their future.

I am so tired of all these people, who are only interested in themselves and whose sole meaning of life is only the empty, because they do nothing to leave any positive traces after their death, people can remind.
