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.
People is reporting that The Jackson Estate has decided to make a documentary of their own. Yes, the way that rappers these days will release a response to a diss track made against them, The Jackson Estate decided to release it’s own documentary in response to the Michael Jackson one which details alleged sexual abuse he committed against James Safechuck and Wade Robson when they were kids–Leaving Neverland. They’re also calling their response doc Neverland Firsthand, and not sure if you want to use the word “hand” when responding to child-touching allegations, but okay.
HBO’s “Leaving Neverland” Is Reportedly The Reason Why Janet Jackson Didn’t Perform At The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony
The “Michael Jackson was an evil child molester” documentary Leaving Neverland continues to leave blank stares and head shakes from deeply disturbed viewers, ill-advised lawsuits, the removal of Thriller from people’s Spotify favorites, and just plain ole’ uncomfortable mess in its cringey wake. Variety claims that Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and MJ’s sister Janet Jackson allegedly didn’t perform at last night’s ceremony because of the documentary sharing a network (HBO) with an upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame special.
In “Girl What Is You Doing?” news, Barbra Streisand had to “clarify” some comments she made about Michael Jackson’s accusers. While promoting an upcoming concert over in jolly old England, Barbra let out a nugget of crazy WTF about Wade Robson and James Safechuck. If you need a refresh on what earned Barbra the award for The Worst Take, here you go:
“His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has. You can say ‘molested’, but those children, as you heard say (the grown-up Robson and Safechuck), they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”
That take is like butter gone rancid and covered in shit. I guess basically defending an alleged pedophile is not the coolest thing to do in 2019? Weird. Well, now Barbra is doing the thing which is very cool in 2019: apologizing for the problematic things she said
Why oh why couldn’t Barbra Streisand just stick to fun out of touch crazy rich lady stuff like cloning her dog twice over or having an entire shopping mall under her living room floor? Why’d she have to go and add her out of touch crazy rich lady stuff to the conversation about Michael Jackson’s alleged pedophilia? Babs was interviewed by The Times and revealed that while she absolutely believes Michael’s Leaving Neverland accusers, James Safechuck and Wade Robson, are telling the truth, she also wonders what’s the big deal since they’re both married and have children now. What’s more, she mostly blames their parents, not Michael, for what happened to them. Oh how I wish we could just go back to the way we were before she opened her mouth.
