Introduce yourself / Hello everyone
« on: January 25, 2012, 04:13:05 PM »

Hi it is me all4love I am back i am still at the hospitals broke my femor and doing physio I received lots of email instead of answering individual I decided to write globally  pure love I am often on msn so you can tell me everything about Michael I will be waiting  thank you for all your concern love you all will be back soon god bless

The life expectancy of the Cirque du Soleil’s  Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour may be shorter than its producers think suggests an LA Times review of the show following its Saturday night (Dec. 3)  opening at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.

Pop Music critic Randall Roberts basically says that the wealth of material left by Jackson hasn’t been used to optimum effect. “Which is why this thing is such a drag,” he writes.

Ouch. And it doesn’t get better.  Roberts describes the show as  ”a two-dimensional mixtape that, were it relocated to a hockey arena, could be easily adapted as “Michael Jackson on Ice.” Filled with Vegas cheese, oddly chosen MJ spoken word interludes, ill-advised song-and-dance combos — the silliest of which involves a little human dressed as Bubbles pretending to be a DJ while men swing on rings below — the production never feels like it ever gets going, and any narrative is quickly sacrificed in service of another requisite series of swinging maneuvers.”

Oh well, you can’t please everyone. What about the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the newspaper of note in Sin City, and it’s resolutely fair-minded reviewer Mike Weatherford? His review (click here to read it) ranges from ambivalent to mildly disappointed. He does praise the “Smooth Criminal” number: ”That one’s a straight-on, slam-bang adaptation of Jackson’s MTV glory years — with zoot-suited dancers doing a simultaneous, gravity-defying lean before welding sparks shoot out of their waistcoats — which you’d hoped “The Immortal” would have more of.  Instead, you get a lot of moments that surely come off smaller than intended for the arena spectacle, which parks at Mandalay Bay through Dec. 27.”

Not so bad. Much better than the LA Times. Hardly laudatory. But at least Weatherford has his facts straight. Roberts writes that this same MJ show will be taking up residence at the Mandalay Bay in 2013. Not so. A new, permanent MJ show will be created for that purpose, while this one keeps touring the world.

Both of these reviewers are, of course, gettting plenty of nasty comments from Jackson fans, who continue to buy reams of tickets to MJ The Immortal World Tour

Court Case & Hearings; Discussion and Articles / The Doctor’s a scapegoat
« on: December 03, 2011, 05:52:18 PM »
Earlier this week Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, was sentenced to four years in prison after a jury found him guilty of his death. But forget the jury’s verdict for a moment. Unfortunately they were only able to deliberate on the facts relating to Jackson’s overdose case and Dr Murray. So let’s look at history.

People in showbusiness are not like you and me. They often lead precarious and reckless lives. Drug and alcohol abuse form a huge part of their recreational activities. In recent years there have been a whole spate of show business people who have been cited by the law or who have died from some form of substance abuse.

Just off the top of my head, I can name Heath Ledger, Elvis Presley, River Phoenix, Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe. Of course, if they haven’t died, they’ve been stopped by police for driving under the influence of alcohol – Mel Gibson, Nick Nolte, Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton and Kiefer Sutherland. Obviously there is something about the lives they lead that forces them to behave the way they do. And Michael Jackson was no different.

The question is: did Michael Jackson really die in June 2009? Or was he dead long before that? The way Michael Jackson’s life went, all roads led to Rome. There were so many adversities in his life that sooner or later he was bound to fall into a deep, dark well.  But he wasn’t the only one battling adversities; many people, both famous and ordinary, have problems in their lives.

A few fall into a deep depression whilst others deal with it through therapy or by moving on. Of the many celebrities who have had personal problems, few resort to drugs and alcohol to deal with them. Take a look at Martha Stewart – after her incarceration, she’s bounced back; it’s as if nothing ever happened. But then again perhaps Michael Jackson was different after all.

Of all the entertainers in the world the media abused him the most. For years they plastered his face across our television screens and on the front pages of our newspapers. He has had countless surgical procedures to change the way he looked because he obviously didn’t think he was good enough. Every time he had one of his surgeries, the media would post before and after pictures of him. Even his colour changed.

The media often speculated whether he underwent some sort of procedure to make him white or was he suffering from vitiligo? They then questioned his marriage to Elvis’ daughter, Lisa-Marie. Was it real or a publicity stunt? The marriage was bizarre to say the least.

This followed his bizarre marriage to Debbie Rowe and the children who don’t look like they share a single molecule of his DNA; who names a child ‘Blanket’? And why would the mother not appear in the lives of her kids, even after his death?

Then the worst time of his life was when he was tried in 2005 for alleged inappropriate behaviour with children. Was it true or was the family of the child involved trying to prise money out of the singer?

This was the media involvement. The more perplexing puzzle is, where was the family when he was addicted? Where was the family when he was being raked over the coals in 2005? Where was the family when he spent years undergoing plastic surgery that wasn’t helping him but making him look worse?

With so many relatives alive and living in the same country, he was a very lonely figure who sought companionship in inappropriate people who were only interested in what he could give them.

This illusive family now appears to be trying to cash in on his death with celebrity appearances, interviews with Oprah, hosting shows and demanding 100 million dollars in damages.

Dr Conrad was a victim of his greed and Jackson’s celebrity. It baffles me that with so many culprits behind Jackson’s ultimate demise they have finally managed to find a scapegoat. Four years seems somewhat harsh when so many people have been released on much bigger charges. OJ Simpson and Casey Anthony both got off scot-free even though suspicion still surrounds the death of their ‘victims.’ Shame on the Jacksons. Shame on the media.

The Michael Jackson Estate / London insurers to see Jackson medical records
« on: December 01, 2011, 10:02:00 PM »

I posted this here, I couldn't find the thread for Insurance.. If it is under the wrong thread please add it to the correct thread thank you.

LOS ANGELES — Insurers for Michael Jackson's ill-fated London comeback shows can study some of the star's medical records, a US judge has said in a ruling that could affect a payout over his death.
Lawyers for the King of Pop's estate will get access to the records from medical providers and can show them to lawyers from Lloyd's of London, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Malcolm Mackey ruled.
Lloyd's, which is resisting paying out on a $17.5 million policy because it did not know that Jackson was taking drugs before his death more than two years ago at the age of 50, filed suit against tour promoter AEG in June.
Attorneys for the Jackson estate and for Lloyd's will both decide which of the medical records are relevant to the case and ask Mackey to mediate in any dispute.
The legal move came days after Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray was jailed for the maximum four years following his conviction for involuntary manslaughter. He is expected to serve less than half the sentence due to California laws linked to overcrowding and budget concerns.
A six-week trial heard evidence from a number of witnesses about the various drugs Jackson was allegedly taking at least in the months before he died, including the anesthetic propofol.
Jackson died on June 25, 2009 from an overdose of propofol and other sedatives, administered by Murray in an attempt to help the star sleep while in Los Angeles, where he was rehearsing for his "This is It" comeback tour.
The trial also heard claims that Jackson, battling to resurrect his career from child molestation charges that left him with huge financial debts, stood to make $100 million from the 50 planned concerts.
Lloyd's wants Mackey to rule that it does not have to pay out on the AEG insurance policy because it was not told about Jackson's drug problems when the contract was signed.
Lloyd's attorney Paul Schreiffer said Jackson waived any privacy rights he might have asserted before he died by signing an agreement for his medical records to be produced for the company.
Schrieffer said the ruling should help move the case forward, adding that Lloyd's has sought the medical information for more than two years.
Lloyd's issued subpoenas for the records on July 12, including two directed at Beverly Hills dermatologist Dr Arnold Klein and Dr Allan Metzger, who accompanied Jackson on a tour in the 1990s.
The Lloyd's lawsuit against AEG claims the promoter did not tell the insurer about the singer's medical history, "including, but not limited to, his apparent prescription drug use and/or drug addiction."
The company also alleges AEG did not disclose the star's use of propofol.
"There is evidence to suggest that Michael Jackson had a history of narcotic use, including but not limited to Demerol and propofol, the use of which may have resulted in his death, the Lloyd's court papers say.
"Dr Klein was a (dermatologist) for Michael Jackson who administered Demerol to Jackson reportedly on a regular basis."
The trial heard how Jackson would emerge from Dr Klein's office drowsy and slurring his speech. In a chilling audio recording played in court the star was barely comprehensible, talking about his hopes for the London shows.

MJ Tributes / Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Concert Company Goes Bust
« on: November 28, 2011, 05:41:11 AM »
The company behind Michael Jackson's tribute concert in Cardiff, Wales last month (Oct11) has gone into administration after falling into debt.
Michael Forever - The Tribute Concert was held at the city's Millennium Stadium in October (11) and featured performances from acts including Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green.
However, the memorial gig was marred by controversy throughout the planning stage as Kiss, the Black Eyed Peas and Jennifer Hudson all dropped out of the line-up, while the Jackson family was divided over whether it should be staged at all.
Following the show, reports emerged suggesting crew members who worked at the gig had not been paid in full by Global Events Llp, the firm behind the concert, and now it has been revealed the company has gone into administration as bosses struggled to pay off massive debts.
A spokesman for London-based insolvency practitioners Rsm Tenon confirmed Global Events has gone into administration, stating, "We are currently conducting our initial review of the business."
Company co-founder Michael Henry tells, "All enquiries about Global Events should be made to the administrators."

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Lawyers for Michael Jackson's doctor have asked that he receive probation for his involuntary manslaughter conviction, while prosecutors have urged a sentence of four years in prison.

In a sentencing memorandum filed Wednesday in advance of sentencing Tuesday, prosecutor David Walgren said Dr. Conrad Murray has shown no remorse for Jackson's death and has placed blame on others.

He asked that Murray also be ordered to pay restitution to Jackson's children.

Defence attorney Nareg Gourjian, citing letters of praise from Murray's former patients, said the doctor is serving a lifetime sentence of self-punishment and asked for probation and community service in the medical field.

The two recommendations were filed with Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor. Murray was convicted Nov. 7 after a six-week trial.

UK tabloid The Sun reported yesterday that lawyers representing the king of pop's estate are going to ask Judge Michael Pastor to order the killer doctor to pay his children what Jackson would have earned if he had been working.

The lawyers are demanding that Conrad Murray, 58, make the payout to Jackson's children, Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket.

Prosecutors say the children are victims who should be compensated for wages that would have been banked by their superstar father, as well as cash spent on his funeral, the newspaper reported.

Estimates from Jackson's estate managers are that he would have earned R846-million from his This Is It tour, which was supposed to start two months after his death in June 2009.

The Los Angeles District Attorney's office has also filed papers with the judge and asked that Murray, who was convicted on a charge of involuntary manslaughter, serve the maximum sentence of four years in jail.

However, The Sun reports that the sentence is likely to be reduced to two years due to prison overcrowding. Murray's lawyers will be asking the judge to place him on probation.

Dr. Conrad Murray wants to formally address the court when he is sentenced at the end of this month.
The doctor could be jailed for up to four years after he was found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson - who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - but has told his lawyers he wishes to testify in front of Los Angeles Judge Michael Pastor.
A source close to Murray - who is currently being held in Los Angeles County Jail pending the hearing next Tuesday (29.11.11) - told website "Dr. Murray wanted to testify, and feels that if he had, there is no way he would have been convicted. Murray is livid that his lawyers didn't put him on the stand and has said he plans on pleading with Judge Michael Pastor for mercy. Murray will admit no guilt, and not take any responsibility for his actions. Murray plans on appealing and wants the judge to give him probation only for killing Michael Jackson."
During the sentencing, it is expected that several Jackson family members will make victim impact statements, and Michael's three children could write letters to the judge that could be read aloud in court.
Changes to Californian law mean that even if Murray is given the maximum sentence by Judge Pastor, he will only serve up to two years in prison and could be eligible to sit out the punishment under house arrest.

When Michael Jackson, in a drug-induced altered state of consciousness and slurring speech, talked about building a hospital for children, it wasn't the first time Michael Jackson had talked about building medical facilities for sick children. He equipped a burn wing at Brotman Medical Center in Culver City and built a 19-bed wing at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York.

Artist David Nordahl, Michael Jackson's friend for more than 20 years, and whose work was commissioned for Neverland Ranch, recently shared some memories of Jackson:

"That conversation they played in court was so Michael. Taking care of sick children is what he talked about in every conversation we ever had. He took care of sick children all over the world. He paid for Bela Farcas' liver; the cost was $125,000 and when they found out it was for Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson who decided to split the cost, the price jumped to a quarter of a million. Bela got his liver.

"I didn't do just paintings for Michael; he asked me to do sketches for rides he invented at Neverland and the drawings for condos he planned to build for critically ill children and their families. He knew that critically ill children heal better in an environment of hope, positive thoughts, laughter and magic. The darkened and quiet sick room fosters depression, not joy and joy heals according to Michael. His condos had large bay windows in the front and they were supposed to look like tree houses in the forest.

"He wanted the large windows because he knew that very ill children often can't sleep and wake up at night afraid, so he built an outdoor theater to run cartoons 24/7 so that if the children woke up, they would be able to see the cartoons from the window."

Nordahl spoke about Michael's mischaracterized love for children. How was he during that time when he was accused, I wanted to know.

"Michael knew, I mean absolutely knew -- without a doubt -- that his personal destiny was to heal children; it was his calling. He visited orphanages all over the world, built some, built children's wings on hospitals, he sent doctors to the Balkans and even sent a 737 with medical supplies to Sarajevo.

Michael loved children; he lived for children. They were the most important thing in his life; in fact, they were his reason for living. All Michael's work was dedicated to children -- to the children of the world or to the child in all of us. Neverland Ranch was dedicated to children and it was always under construction. Its similarity to Disneyland was intentional. Michael saw helping children in this world as his life mission. He traveled the world advocating for children and contributing a great personal fortune to children's causes. It was his life and it was his reason for living. Can you imagine what it was like for him to be accused of harming children?"

The story told is that as Michael befriended a divorced family with a boy diagnosed with cancer and brought them to Neverland because children healed there from all kinds of troubles and wounds, he came in contact with the boy's father who believed himself to be creative and an unrecognized talent as a playwright. Ravaged by a mental illness and prone to its delusions, the father believed he would become Jackson's partner in his planned production company -- Lost Boys Productions. Jackson, with $40 million in start-up money from his record company, commissioned Nordahl to design some logos for the project. Before the paint was dry, the boy's father realized he was never going to be Jackson's partner in the venture, and he demanded half the money. When Jackson refused, the rest became easy: make an accusation and collect $20 million earmarked for filmmaking -- Jackson's passion and next venture.

Unfortunately Jackson never got to realize his dream of making films. His reputation suffered and some will always think him guilty of a crime when his only crime was being "different." But geniuses usually are often outcasts of their peers and culture. And we can guess, given the times, that more than a little of what happened to Michael Jackson was racially motivated.

I pointed out to Nordahl that the blueprint for the condos at Neverland included waterfalls that produce negative ions which are uplifting and make people feel good; he had to know about endorphins.

"Of course he knew; he had music piped in at Neverland for the flowers because he knew it encouraged them to grow," Nordahl replied, "Michael read all the time. He knew a lot about healing; he knew joy and delight had an effect on hormones and mood. He wanted some of the construction at Neverland to be secret so that children visiting would not know ahead of time everything they would encounter there, so that there was the joy of surprise. He knew how it would delight them and make them feel."

"But the magic for Michael was gone. Michael loved magic; he asked for it in paintings. He saw the world that way and he deliberately looked through the magical eyes of a child because he preferred it. It's true he felt the loss of childhood, but more than that, Michael liked seeing the world through fresh un-indoctrinated and fresh eyes, so he chose it. Looking with those eyes and through the lens of innocence allowed his creativity to flow freely and fiercely like a river. When the accusations came, especially the last one, his river of creativity was dammed and went dry."

The media, in a frenzy, used Jackson to sell their wares -- the tabloid headlines, the stolen and unflattering pictures. He took to wearing a mask to discourage them. Fortunes were made on fictionalized stories and unauthorized biographies by people who never met him or knew him only on at the fringes of his orbit.

The loudest Jackson detractors are often the most guilty of using Jackson and riding the hysteria surrounding him to launch and sustain careers "reporting" on Michael Jackson's life. Those same people know sensation sells and knowingly contributed to it. They still ride his coattails even in death, revisit the crimes whenever in front of a camera, and claim guilt to this day despite a mountain of evidence to the contrary and a not guilty (14 counts) verdict. They can't afford to be exposed for their bullying so they stubbornly occupy their position. They bullied him for his skin color lightened by the disease Vitiligo; the paternity of his children despite modern adoptions and fertilization methods for couples unable to conceive, for his surgeries in a culture that reveres youth and eschews 'aging rockers.' Deep pockets and a racist agenda explains much because Jackson was born into and grew up in a racist culture and married white women. The rest is explained by the ego that: sees people not as who they are but as who you are being.

"Some called Neverland a child magnet," Nordahl reminded me. "And it was really; that was deliberate. But Michael did not have the agenda they said he had -- his agenda was not to harm children; his only agenda was to bring joy and magic to kids. I watched him do that for 20 years. Michael himself had a kind of magical attraction. Kids just followed him. We were once in a Toys-R-Us store where Michael was buying toys for kids and I turned around to find a sea of kids following us. And Michael was in disguise."

"People said he was a recluse; he wasn't. He just always drew crowds. There was something about him; watching people descend on him was like watching a wave crashing to shore. He had to practice getting out of any article of clothing quickly because people around him went into a kind of frenzy. He could get out clothes faster than anyone I've ever seen."

Nordahl remembers too, the loneliness that Michael suffered.

"Before and during the trial he felt abandoned. He was being convicted in the court of public opinion and he worried about getting a fair trial. He worried about what would happen to his kids if he went to prison. He had trouble sleeping. We were staying at a friend's beach house on the ocean and I told him if he couldn't sleep to come down and visit me. He was worried he'd keep me awake but I didn't mind; I knew he was lonely and worried. We spent many long hours talking and sometimes walking on the beach waiting for sunrise. He couldn't sleep. When you take away someone's reason for living, the reason for his life, what's left?"
I wanted to know if David Nordahl had been watching the trial.

"Sure; it's hard because you know they had to make it about Michael. I wish the world could know the real Michael. Michael always said that if you talked about the good you did in the world, you cancelled the beneficence of the gift, so he was very private about his humanitarian work. Nobody will ever know how much he did for this world and for the children. The world will never know what it lost because they took Michael from his work and that cheated not just him of his future, but it cheated all of us."

Conrad Murray's trial for manslaughter predictably became about Michael Jackson instead of his doctor because the use of Propofol was unusual and the patient was famous. In court, the displaying of medication bottles was high drama and the media pounced and rushed to publish "Michael Jackson's addiction."

A close look at the dates, the number of pills prescribed measured against the number taken, number left and span of time the pills sat in that bedroom proves not that Jackson was an addict, but that he was actually non-compliant with medications he was prescribed. But that isn't sexy; and it's all about sexy and getting viewers for a trial that was predicted to be "bigger than the Casey Anthony trial." Except it wasn't. Hysteria fatigue, perhaps? Have we had enough?

Pundits on HLN seemed to push the "addict" label because it suited their agenda to promote books and careers. "Michael Jackson" has promoted many books and careers involuntarily as people conscripted his name for their own purposes. HLN was no exception. An addiction specialist physician jumped on the same "addict" meme despite the conflicting information between addiction, bottle labeling and usage, and despite medical records entered in evidence that were unsigned and confusing. The physician's questionable records were allowed in court but the physician was not and he wasn't made able to explain his treatment of Jackson for facial procedures to reconstruct his face. Jackson had Vitiligo and Discoid Lupus -- the same disease which has left the entertainer Seal, facially scarred. It is entirely reasonable that Michael Jackson's face be treated and re-sculpted; he made his living on stage.

That same physician also hypothesized that the nightly use of Propofol accounted for the poor condition of Jackson's lungs while it was well known to insiders that Michael Jackson had a Tryptophan Synthetase Deficiency which is a lung disease characterized by a lack of protein for lubrication. Jackson's fans could have enlightened any one of these talking heads but they didn't fact check nor ask fans. If you want to know something about a sports or pop culture figure, ask fans who know everything about them.

In fairness to the pundits, the coverage could have been much worse and the fans could have been depicted in a much poorer or darker light. Unfortunately the fringe elements of fandom were highlighted and that included conspiracy theorists who believe that Jackson is alive and in hiding. And for the most part, fans behaved well except for an occasional scuffle.

Mainstream Jackson fans who get less attention than the vocal fringe, are articulate, thoughtful, bright, and interested in justice and vindication. Many are professionals who contribute to society, pay their taxes and raise children in the suburbs and cities. They have an interesting story to tell society should anyone ever want to listen. What they have to say is shocking.

The trial, it seems was all about Michael Jackson despite Murray's dalliances are well known -- seven children with six women, his methodology even in his clinic appeared reckless to other physicians and one who ventured: "The only thing Murray could have done that was more dangerous was to push Jackson out of an airplane without a parachute." And what doctor ships a stockpile of medication to a private residence? What doctor using a dangerous drug does not have the proper emergency equipment required for safety and for resuscitation when he is the only one there in case something happens to the patient? The drug labeling requires it as do protocols. A simple regulator pump that would have saved Jackson's life by regulating the flow of Propofol according to body weight and dosage guidelines would have cost $1,500 of a salary one hundred times that per month. Murray owned a clinic; if he could order Propofol in bulk, he could order medical equipment that would have saved Jackson's life.

Yes, it was the Michael Jackson trial because once again, Jackson was put on trial even in the afterlife. And it's ironic that the most compelling piece of evidence came not from the prosecutor or from the defense, but from Michael Jackson himself. Jackson, whom a nurse anesthetist says sounded like he was under the influence of Propofol -- with no cameras filming, no media in attendance, was clear about his motivation, his intention and his future plans even in that sedated state. He said:

"Elvis didn't do it. The Beatles didn't do it. When people leave my show I want them to say 'I've never seen nothing like it in my life. Go. Go. I've never seen nothing like this. Go. It's amazing. He's the greatest entertainer in the world.' I'm taking that money, a million children, a children's hospital, the biggest in the world. Michael Jackson's Children's Hospital.
Gonna have a movie theater, game room. Children are depressed -- in those hospitals, no game room no movie theater, They're sick because they're depressed, Their mind is depressing them I want to give them that, I care about them angels. God wants me to do it. God wants me to do it. I'm gonna do it, Conrad.

Don't have enough hope; no more hope. That's the next generation that's going to save our planet starting with - well talk about it. United States, Europe, Prague, my babies.

They walk around with no mother. They drop them off, they leave -- a psychological degradation -- that. They reach out to me -- please take me with you.

I want to do that for them. I'm gonna do that for them. That will be remembered more than my performances. My performances will be up there helping my children and always be my dream. I love them. I love them because I didn't have a childhood. I had no childhood. I feel their pain. I feel their hurt, I can deal with it.

'Heal the World,' 'We are the World,' 'Will You Be There?', 'The Lost Children.' These are the songs I've written because I hurt, you know, I hurt."

A children's hospital or healing center was Michael Jackson's dream. And this is not the first time the subject of medical treatment and healing of children has come up in Michael Jackson's legacy. When Jackson's slurred declaration was first reported Jane Velez Mitchell of HLN declared on air that this recording of Jackson proves what Michael Jackson fans have been saying all along -- that Michael was misunderstood and mischaracterized and Neverland Ranch was misrepresented to the public. She called the conversation vindication for Michael Jackson. She only said it once as that very same day people who made money with "hit piece" biographies chastised her on Twitter and she went silent.

Conrad Murray is not the first nor the last person to be privy to Michael Jackson's dream for children. In an article by Italian journalist Silvia Bizio, Anjelica Huston who played opposite Jackson in the Captain EO film for Disney, accidentally ran into Michael Jackson about a month before he died. They hugged, hunkered down in a room together and caught up on each others' lives.

Huston remembered Michael as being tender and fragile, having trouble mustering up enough anger to carry out his role as Captain EO with a spaceship crew who sings 'We are here to change the world.' She said it was as if anger didn't live in his DNA. He needed her there, in costume and sneering her lines to play off her villainous character. Huston said he seemed even more fragile especially emotionally, during their brief encounter. She put her arms around him; she says:

"We talked about how he had felt humiliated by the accusation of sexual harassment and about the sorrow for the loss of Neverland, where he had lived many years. I remember his words: 'They ruined my dream. I had this dream, perhaps childish and foolish, a place designed to celebrate the innocence of that childhood that I never had, and they took it from me. I love children, I could never do them harm. I spent all my life loving them and trying to do good things for them. The libel of harming a child--that breaks my heart. It is an unbearable pain, those accusations are unjust and terrible...' As he said these things, he began to cry. I held him in my arms...He was so skinny and frail."
Jackson told her he was preparing for the London concerts. She remembers:

"He was training hard because he would have 'no more hope to be loved back again.' He wanted to be let back in to the hearts of the public after his public lynching for something he said he didn't do and a jury of his peers agreed with. Huston goes on: "he was thin and pale; I could feel so much pain in him for the past and a lot of anxiety and uncertainty for the future."
When asked by Bizio, "What do you think really killed Michael Jackson?' Anjelica Huston didn't hesitate: "Michael had a broken heart. For this he died. The truth is that they broke his heart."
