Michael Jackson Estate

JOINS PEPSI!

Deal with the Devil?

Michael Jackson's Estate has just made a huge deal with Pepsi -- the company whose 1984 commercial arguably ruined his life, and some say it's a deal with the devil.

You'll recall, MJ's hair famously caught fire during a pyrotechnic mishap while filming the commercial -- causing severe burns on his scalp that led MJ to become a hardcore prescription drug addict ... and that addiction eventually led him to Dr. Conrad Murray.



The MJ Estate feels Pepsi is the right company to join forces with for a couple of reasons.  First, Michael himself worked with Pepsi twice after the incident, once in 1988 and again in 1991, so the singer obviously didn't hold a grudge. And a spokesperson for the estate tells us, "We're here to market the re-release of the 'Bad' album and Pepsi is the most effective place to do it."

But lots of people blame the Pepsi shoot for putting MJ on a drug-fueled path of self-destruction -- including one of the singer's former managers Frank Cascio, who said MJ was introduced to Demerol (a heroin-like opioid) following the accident ... to help deal with the pain.

The Jackson/Pepsi promotion will vary country-to-country -- but will include a TV commercial, special edition cans with Jackson's image, and chances to win downloadable remixes of Jackson's songs.

So there??? Haha

Lies and incomplete answers........where is your link to support your claim.

Was it a blow up doll???

Does that make him normal??? even if that was a female doll and have other people's daughter picture on display??? That makes him more a non-selective pedophile, the best!

What grown ass man of 50 years old sleep with a doll? Did he baby talk the doll?

Can some one tell me why MJ only had boys sleep over ?

Can some one tell me why he had a boy doll in his death bed and only boy pictures on display and no girls?

Can some one tell me if he had any of his children pictures on display in his bedroom or in his drug room?

I wonder if he ever took a look on his children's pictures before he asked to be injected with Propofol?

The answer is quite simple, he was a child predator. He took advantage of boys that worshiped him, were just beginning puberty and were from troubled homes.


I'm not sure if he ever replaced the child pornography that was seized in the first raid. Oh sorry, he and the fans call it "art"


Yea, a 50 year old man sleeping with a doll, completely normal.

"King of all music"? What a laugh.

"King of pop", sure, I'll give him that. Pop is after all disposable, without substance and simple enough that even children and the mentally challenged can digest it. He and the music produced under his name was a joke.
Being popular never meant being good. If that was true, the best TV show in the world was Baywatch.

What I Think    

When Dr. Murray is released from prison, maybe MJ's fans will do what MJ himself would have done...Hit him with their purses.

"THOSE SAME FUNNY HATEFUL PEOPLE WILL BE JOINING THE REST OF THE WORLD BUYING PEPSI!!!!"

INCLUDING "YOU"!!!


everyone will not be joining the rest of the world. your mind is totally burnt out! there are so many people waking up and seeing the truth these day. your king no longer hypnotises the masses, only the truly burnt out victims such as yourself.


"YOU WILL BUY PEPSI" because you are part of the problem. everyone else will buy what they actually like.
