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.

mj begged chris tucker to pay gavin arvizo, then he boasted about mj's love for arvizo on a talk show in 2002.
how nice that the jacksons get free love and publicity from people who liked mj's love for arvizo.

Gene's prime motivation has always been money. The fact that he's donning that outfit and makeup at his age is truly pathetic. Hang it up Gene you hypocrite.

People, cut on a nose: the bad person can't write magnificent music. It is simple can't. MJ has written magnificent music. Having fallen in love with its music, respect and appreciate created it is Michael Jackson. The courts, any slanders on Jackson aren't necessary to me - it is enough to listen to words and music of its songs. Michael! Be in heavens or with us!
(Люди, зарубите на носу: не может плохой человек написать великолепную музыку. Просто не сможет. М.Джексон написал великолепную музыку. Полюбив его музыку, уважайте и цените создавшего её - Майкла Джексона. Мне не нужны суды, всякие наговоры на Джексона - достаточно прислушаться к словам и музыке его песен. Майкл! Будь на небесах или с нами!)

I think we need to stop being so hard on this family. We need to realize that once the trail is over and this concerts are done, this family is going to really feel the absence of their family member. When someone dies in a family as long as you're busy or they is some type of activity to keep you busy, this family is going to go through the death all over again, and the person I feel the most sorriest for when this happens is Mrs. Jackson because her son is gone and he's not coming back to this life ever again.

MJ died for no reason; he has no family to defend him.
no one. no la toya.
joe CLAIMED HE saw WEIGHT LOSS. funny, he did nothing. sweet dad.

-fangirl knew him for 2 decades, hugged him, watched him closely and never used him for millions of dollars.
he was too weak to read the letters of real fans he knew, not the clueless drug enabling fanatics:

In the last few days of Michael's life I also remember noticing his security guard Alberto Alvarez often looking very agitated and breaking into a nervous sweat. He would tell us, when questioning him on whether Michael was okay or not, that Michael was focused and in tour mode and not actually answering the question. Yet we could see it was more than that, that Michael had become increasingly altered, groggy and emaciated and that his security was nervous about something. In fact, instead of having 2-3 guards behind the gates at his house, it doubled and tripled and I even counted up to 12 of them on the night he died. In an attempt to do an intervention to save his life, a couple of dozen fans (including myself) wrote letters to Michael the week before his death. It was our intention to give him the letters and to make a statement on behalf of all the fans who felt something was wrong. We did in fact manage to get them in his hands that afternoon. That night would be the last time I'd see him, leaving Staples Center at around 1.30 am on June 25th,2009.
Finally I want to end this by making something very clear. I am not saying Michael seemed high or groggy all the time. I want that to be understood. We did NOT perceive him as a junkie. We were just concerned (during a certain period of time) that he was too stressed and too pressured to be able to eat and function without medication and that people around him knew he was unwell and chose to close their eyes for profit
