Is it disturbing because it’s FOUR HOURS LONG? Are they sure the people who looked disturbed were actually just looking pained from holding in urine for FOUR HOURS so they didn’t leave and miss anything? Leaving Neverland is an upcoming HBO documentary about the multiple sexual abuse charges that were leveled against Michael Jackson. It had its premiere at Sundance yesterday, and HuffPo reports that the attendees were shook during and after the viewing and not in the “Trinity the Tuck’s gown had me shook, gurl” way.
The ick factor of Michael Jackson having children staying over at his house back in the day has been covered by documentaries, and celebrities who knew Michael handle that subject matter about as well as anyone who has starred in a Woody Allen movie does when asked to go over Woody’s skeletons in his closet. Macaulay Culkin was one of those kids, and he and Michael struck up a close friendship alongside their 22-year age gap.

Leaving Neverland, a new 4-hour documentary about the alleged molestation of two boys at the hands of Michael Jackson, has just been added to the schedule at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

As such, they’ve sharply criticized the documentary and released a statement condemning it.

Idris would have been the first black James Bond, but word is coming out that the role could have had just as momentous a turn years earlier had Michael Jackson gotten his way. Michael wanted to play 007. Alas, the audition sounds like a disaster. I’m shocked!
What you are looking at above are two German Michael Jackson impersonators. That’s probably not exactly a shock to you, but it turns out those fake Michael Jacksons might be about as real as some of the Michael Jackson music Sony has been releasing in the nine years since his death.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your day so far, because it’s about to get gross and dark. Happy Thursday!
Conrad Murray, the shady doctor who served two years for manslaughtering Michael Jackson, is back with a message. And it is not a pleasant one.
