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.

Sorry, losers, but your mighty hero Michael Jackson was an obvious pedophile and a weirdo. I'm guessing you're able to overlook these hideous flaws by blaming his perverted behavior on his drug addiction. Yeah, all the drugs he took caused him to bugger little boys. So buy his new record and dance to it. Thank you Gene, for speaking the truth.

STFU He's probably jealous that MJ was far and away more talented than Gene could ever hope to be...ALSO no matter how many times KISS 'sold out' and put their names/faces on anything and everything...they still aren't as famous, loved as MJ. MJ had/has extreme talent, a personality, a big heart....oh and he seemed to genuinely give a sh*t about other people...unlike Gene

That's pretty much the last straw for me concerning Katherine Jackson. If Gene Simmons actually said those things about Michael Jackson, there is no excuse for putting him on this tribute. I hope anyone who attends boos him out. And now, more than ever, I feel bad about the children going to Wales for this. Kids, please stay in school - this may not make a good impression on you, and you are too young to travel around the world working, anyway.

Wacko was a pedophile and to be a part of a tribute to him makes them just as culpable.

aston..he diod say them on his own doubt for 15 minutes of press at mj he shows up to honor the man he dissed..disgusting..
well what troubles me more is the fact that for some reason the family either is uninformed about the people who have crucified their son or they just look the other way when it suits them.just very sad

jackson fans confronted la toya on Phil Donahue Show when la toya said her marriage was based on only business. she claimed she hugged mj and mj felt no anger after she called him a criminal child predator.
no one worried about the chandlers because momma katherine and brother jermaine were begging mj for jackson 5 concerts.

Michael Jackson was a pedophile, and Gene Simmons should not perform. I had your back Gene, til you decided to perform at the tribute to the child molester. Bad Gene. Very bad.

Can't stand this long tongued barbarian. His tongue is the only thing he's known for.

mj invited aaron carter and n'sync onstage in 2001.
mj obviously had another nose tip reduction and had little eye contact with the crowd.
he let boys like aaron in his home with no responsible adult or parent with them.
gavin arvizo stole liquor. mj still cried that religion
saved his life and made it ok to have strangers' kids to love at home and the juvenile detention center for murderous boys.
mj begged lisa marie to let him hug AND tell 2 murderer boys how much he loved them.
he claimed that gavin did nothing bad on the 60 Minutes show.
jordan chandler would've
stayed away from his father evan and mj,
to avoid trouble, if mj and so-called friends of mj had told jordan that evan was threatening to steal money and abuse jordan with legal action and more lies.
mj did nothing but bring jordan and his mother to parties
and placed the 14 year old boy on his lap. mj enjoyed getting showered with attention, and escaped painkiller drug death in 1994.
jordan was brainwashed to accept his lottery money after his father abused and drugged him. mj didn't 'worry about love for neglected children'.
he said he didn't want another o.j. simpson circus...from NEVERLAND. well, he sure was quiet when evan hugged him and demanded millions of dollars repeatedly...
jordan was beaten with an iron barbell by his father.
of course, mj cried about tommy mottola being racist to him and how the police SUDDENLY TAUNTED AND GIGGLED, and locked him up in a feces filled bathroom after manhandling his shoulder and arm deliberately.
mj tried to bluff his way to tii concerts for the jackson kids, but he went to another childish drug level. yeah, he knew nothing about warnings about propofol abuse.
he paid big time; katherine wants to hide her neglect of her
son by doing media propaganda and exploitation with mj kids and concerts.
she never dared to do greedy tributes, what joe jackson relished, when
mj was in trouble with confused boys and tom sneddon at neverland.
mj told tmz that he definitely would sing with the jackson 5 in 2009. no fake fans were upset about klein, jason, drug dealers, plastic surgeons and greedy jacksons making millions from mj in 1993
and 2009, long before mj demanded Propofol in his bedroom.
naive fangirls say they had unconditional love for him,
as you can see from the dislike votes.
good thing they can't protect a live mj anymore.

nan, I'm afraid the family is just stupid and easy to lead.

Right now, 3,590 people "like" the so called tribute's Facebook page. The whole thing is embarrassing. If you want to do a tribute, you wait for an appropriate point of time, such as three years anniversary of Michael's passing. Then you sign the BIG STARS who actually had some connection to Michael, and only THEN do you announce the concert. AND you give the proceeds to charity, you don't complicate the ticket purchasing procedure like they're doing now - which makes it even more unlikely people will attend.

And stop this pedophile nonsense. Had this defamation had any truth in it, several kids would have come forward - and they would have HATED Michael.

There were TWO accusers out of dozens following Michael on tour or visiting Neverland privately, and thousands visiting Neverland as groups. And of the two, one was drugged by his father and the other talked of molestation only after he was going to be kicked out of Neverland (after having been helped by Michael to heal from cancer) – and none of those two even disliked Michael.

So do the right thing, respect the non guilty verdict from the trial, behave like sensible honorable people and stop this insane and truly evil attempt to destroy first the living man, then his memory. If not, you are just despicable - which he was not.

Not Well, do you think for a minute I care about your stupid, obsessed little shena****ns? I don't care if you are some sicko, or several sickos, or even someone at TMZ trying to stir up the fans.

You know and I know that you know that you don't believe a word of what you're posting. You're like a robot - and a one trick robot, at that. Never anything new, no nuances, nothing of interest. If you ever do anything of value, it sure as hell isn't here.

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 o****e; never females, that age or older, and never grown men." -
This is absolutely LIE!!! I`m from Russia. I saw russian TV programm where the russian woman asserted that she has the daughter - MJ`s child! The girl was there too, - and, imho, she is resembling with MJ very very much! ;)
It`s minimum one example.
Simmons, are you interviewed every man around the world about this subject?! - That would be only one grounds to such approvals. Of course, you are NOT!!!
Therefore, it`s very stupid statement!...
