People do for Michael Jackson, the only difference he was found not guilty, but he still slept with children...even if he didn't do anything. An adult sleeping with children (unrelated) is still wrong.

There is a HELL of a difference between guilty and not guilty.

Still slept with children though, and had lots of books with nude children. But if you think that is okay fair enough.

Nice attempt at trying to stir up some outrage. Are you bored, OP?

So one is a convicted paedophile, the other was accused of being one and found not guilty and yet there is no difference?

Ehh, that's quite a big difference One is a convicted pedophile, one isn't.

Not being actually convicted hasn't worked out too well for Jimmy Saville or Cyril Smith.

So you both find MJ's actions acceptable then? regardless if he was found guilty or not, mind you he wasn't found innocent.

Have you ever heard the lyric to his song 'touch me', written by glitter himself.


We've been here too long tryin' to get along
Pretending that you're, oh, so shy
I'm a natural man doin' all I can
My temperature is runnin' high

Friday night no one in sight
And we got so much to share
Talkin's fine if you got the time
I ain't got the time to spare

Do you wanna touch? Yeah
Do you wanna touch? Yeah
Do you wanna touch me there? Yeah

Do you wanna touch? Yeah
Do you wanna touch? Yeah
Do you wanna touch me there? Where? There, yeah, oh

Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
My my my my my
Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

Every growin' boy needs a little joy
All you do is sit and stare
Beggin' on my knees, baby won't you please
Run your fingers through' my hair

My my my whiskey and rye
Don't it make you feel so fine?
Right or wrong, don't it turn you on?
Can't you see we're wastin' time?

Do you wanna touch? Yeah
Do you wanna touch? Yeah
Do you wanna touch me there? Yeah

Do you wanna touch? Yeah
Do you wanna touch? Yeah
Do you wanna touch me there? Where? There, yeah, oh

Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
There, there, there
Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

Every growing boy needs a little joy
(Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah)
Beggin' on my knees, baby, if you please
(Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah)
Every growing boy needs a little toy
(Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah)

I'm a natural man doin' all I can
(Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah)
Every Friday night I got to get my share
(Yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah)
I'm waiting so long, yeah

you lot have totally missed the point... *rolleyes*

ignore whether you think that there was anything sexual going on between jacko and the kids... thats not the point... the point is is it acceptable for a middle aged man to have sleepovers with unrelated kids?... and no, it makes no difference at all that the 'middle aged man' was michael jackson...

surely tf the answer is NO . what motivation would there be? hes either a perv or has a screw lose or both. either way its not acceptable.

oh...and being found 'not guilty' means they hadnt enough evidence to convict him, it doesnt mean he was innocent. after all they found oj simpson not guilty and everyone knows he was guilty.

Do you understand the difference between being found guilty in a court of law and never, ever being found guilty?

... and an american court is hardly a basis for a sound judgement, o j simpson for eg.

ie it doesnt mean he was innocent.

i note you appologists ignore the fact that he had sleepovers with unrelated children, you wont address that point because there is no sound, safe, logical reason why a middle aged man should do such things..

well he certainly spent alot of time with children, ive been told he can identify with them (by fans on here). you can be a paedophile without committing any sexual misdemeanour.

So, if an artist does something wrong, does that mean they lose all rights to what they created? where do we draw the line? someone being falsly accused? Someone sleeping with an underage fan? taking drugs while being a role model? getting drunk in public? swearing in songs? there would be no singers left in the charts

So your denying he slept with children, and had images of naked children all around his bedroom, all of which has been documented. He may not have done anything physically to these children, but as you are trying to defend him, I guess you think the above behaviour is perfectly acceptable.
