The show must go on – even if it means replacing the Gloved One with Our Lady of Cheetos. Ever since Leaving Neverland came out, radio stations and many ears have been thinking twice before playing Thriller or any other Michael Jackson album. The documentary details long-time sexual abuse allegations against MJ that were pretty horrific, so it seems now isn’t the best time to ask people to shell out Benjis on TicketMaster to hear old King of Pop hits. Chicago, you’re in luck! You get Britney Spears instead!
TMZ is reporting that Aaron Carter is ready to punch someone in the face. Who is the target of Aaron’s aggression? We know it’s not Justin Bieber since he gave Aaron props for paving the musical path for semi-rhythmic white boys all across the world. Aaron is mad at Wade Robson and all the people involved in Leaving Neverland whom he views are slandering Michael Jackson‘s otherwise pristine name.
You won’t see Drake doing the moonwalk anytime soon. Mostly because he only knows how to do that one Kiki challenge dance, but also because he’s not fucking with Michael Jackson anymore. According to Complex, Drake’s just made a last minute change to his setlist for the kickoff of his tour in Manchester, England this past weekend. Drake won’t be performing “Don’t Matter to Me” off his Scorpion album, which featured “previously unheard vocals from Michael Jackson”. Oops, maybe he can ask the Jackson Estate if he can get his money back.
People is reporting that Corey Feldman done changed his mind. While just a few days ago he was defending Michael Jackson over the allegations of child sexual abuse made in the (highly gross to watch) HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, it seems that a few days rest is all Corey needed to flip sides and now he is speaking out against MJ.
If Great Britain is your coy friend when it comes to serving up the good gossip, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia are proving to be that loud bitch who starts every sentence with, “You didn’t hear it from me, but…”. The HBO documentary Leaving Neverland aired this week, and it details the sexual abuse allegations from Wade Robson and James Safechuck against Michael Jackson. BBC Radio 2 maybe/maybe didn’t ban Michael’s music as a result of the documentary and issued an equally as confusing statement to such. Meanwhile, radio stations in New Zealand, Canada, and Australia are proudly beating their chests and saying you won’t hear “Billie Jean” on their airwaves anytime soon.
It would be truly shocking if Paris Jackson had anything to say to the media about her dad, Michael Jackson, and the horrific details of alleged sexual abuse that were revealed in the Leaving Neverland documentary, that wasn’t in lockstep with the official Jackson Estate response. And why should she? She’s got enough to deal with considering she recently had to check herself into a mental health facility to deal with just regular life as a Jackson. According to TMZ, “sources close to Paris” claim that while she hasn’t watched the film, she “firmly believes Michael Jackson was not a child molester”. I mean, duh. We all remember how they did Latoya dirty when she fell out of line, right?
