Michael Jackson was just pronouced not guilty on all charges. This does not surprise me.
Sure, he's kinda wierd. He's hanging onto a youth he never had. He looks just plain odd after too much facial work. This does not make him a child molester, it just makes him very, very naive about the way the world works, and open to this lawsuit.
I find him facinating, as a person and artist, and loved his work in the 80's and 90's. The last decade has not been kind to him, hopefully this will put some final seal on the mess; it being an actual court verdict and everything.
Not guilty, not evil, not crazy, just not living in the same reality as the rest of us.
I'm glad this media frenzy is finally over. Someone's life being destroyed is not entertainment. The sooner we all wake up and realise that, the better this world will be.
