HotNewHipHop says that Drake is getting heat for a new song of his which features a Michael Jackson reference. You’d think people would avoid such a thing considering the way a reference of Michael has shifted from positive to quite negative over the years. Well he’s taking those child abuse allegations and turning them into Top 40 rap music, honey! Which is a good look for him considering how often Drake himself texts with teenage girls.
Macaulay Culkin Still Insists Nothing Happened Between Him And Michael Jackson, And Adds That James Franco Is A Nosy Pest
Don’t feel sorry for Macaulay Culkin, some child stars turn out just fine (eventually), even the ones with supremely shitty parents. While Mack, as he’s known, went through a period of heroin adjacent tabloid drama, he now spends his days positively chilling, according to a recent Esquire profile. He barely works (BY CHOICE!), and spends his time goofing on the internet, smoking cigarettes, chilling with his cats and “keeping his lady fed” which is not a euphemism for butt stuff. The lady in question is his girlfriend, fellow former child actor Brenda Song (The Suite Life of Zach & Cody), and Mack says they are trying for a baby. A real one this time! In the interview, Mack (I hate it so much, but he insists) also talked a little bit about his relationship with Michael Jackson, reiterating that nothing sexual ever happened between them. More delightfully, Mack talked about the time he dunked on James Franco for getting nosy with him on an airplane.
Two years ago, Dave Chappelle released two Netflix stand-up specials, Equanimity and The Bird Revelation. Dave spent some time in The Bird Revelation defending his good friend Louis CK. Dave has a new Netflix special, Sticks & Stones, and once again he’s making us feel sorry for his publicist. Dave makes it very clear how he felt about HBO’s Michael Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland, which is to say he’s absolutely on Team Michael.
After HBO dropped Leaving Neverland on us back in March, it seemed like everyone was quick to pick a side. Aaron Carter initially defended Michael Jackson. And on the other side, radio stations refused to play Michael Jackson’s music. Kieran Culkin is right in the middle.
Kieran spent a bit of time at the Neverland Ranch in the 1980s and 1990s, because his big brother Macaulay Culkin was very good friends with MJ (a sentence that’s never not weird to type). Kieran was recently asked about Leaving Neverland, and he’s got thoughts on the matter, but he isn’t really picking a side or saying too much about it.
The human embodiment of a cry for help, Aaron Carter, tested the waters a couple of months ago by teasing that he had a story to tell about Michael Jackson that might contradict his previous assertion that Michael was an innocent angel sent from heaven as a gift to the little boys and girls (ok, just the boys) of planet earth. Well I guess Aaron was holding onto to this explosive revelation until he had something new to promote. Aaron’s timed his big reveal to coincide with the announcement of his appearance on Marriage Boot Camp. And even though it was pretty much a nothing burger of a revelation (big surprise), it didn’t go over so well with MJ’s fans. So he walked it back.
Not only has Leaving Neverland revealed a ton of alleged child abuse grossness the likes of which spanned hours of details, it’s also turned Corey Feldman’s world upside down and now it seems to be taking its toll on yet another involved in the orbit of Michael Jackson: the original boy wonder himself, Aaron Carter.
