Michael Jackson is a multi-millionaire pedophile who, because of his wealth, got away with molesting children and *THAT* is the *ONLY* reason why he was the top news story this year. It had nothing to do with his music and EVERYTHING to do with him being a lowlife scum child molester. As for the Katrina song, well don't hold your breath or you'll die from lack of oxygen. If he was going to release it, he would have released it by now. It's ONLY one song. It doesn't take that long to record it and release it. My guess is that there is no Katrina song. That it was just another lie from Jackson. He's the biggest liar in the world, and his fans are too moronic and stupid to even realize it.

Of course Michael Jackson is tops in the news because he is the BEST!! All of his fans- I include myself in that catergory for real- knew he would get acquitted of those bogus charges. He loves children as he does his own children and would NEVER EVER hurt a hair on a child's head!! Mr. Michael Jackson is a wonderful, sweet, kind person who is talented as HELL!! HIS MUSIC IS OFF THE CHAINS. Even u non-fans need to give him that.

Oprah ties with Jennifer A? Oh, she’s not going to like that. She worked so hard coat tailing everyone’s success (or problems) this year (did you peep her technique on how she got other guests to talk bad about Michael Jackson?), you would have thought she would have been #1. And did you see how she misquoted Michael who is also good friends with Nelson Mandela? Mr. Mandela is inspiration to Michael, he never said he thought he was just like Mandela. She acts like she’s the only one who can be inspired by someone or know someone. Truthfully, not too many people really ever hear of Oprah until her Michael Jackson interview. Awwww...Babylon will fall Ms. Winfrey. People who live in glass houses shouldn’t through stones. You can’t buy your way into heaven. That BJ person smells like DD… It’s you DD, isn’t it? You know you can’t get enough of MJ… still got the fedora you bought? How’s your book doing? 2000 copies last I heard.. ha ha. Sick heifer!

Biggest news? Yeah no kidding. Everybody wants to know where the child molesters are in their neighborhoods. Michael Jackson is the most visible pedophile in the world, and he escaped conviction - this time.His fans are rejoicing, sacrificing cats, running down dogs in celebration of his, uh, "victory". Heh! Heh! Do you know what this grateful "pop legend" does? First thing he does is pack up and run off to a pedophile friendly country, Bahrain. You know the place. One of the worst child human rights records in the entire world next to Brazil. Odd that MJ has spent time in both places.No matter. He's out of the country, American children are safe from him, for now. Nice guy that Jacko. He leaves his employees holding the bag over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years while he parties it up in Pedoland. Let's not forget the animals that he left to starve to death. He's a sociopath. Doesn't care one whit about what his actions do to anyone else.Thomas Sneddon and Diane Dimond really broke it off in his butt didn't they? Nancy Grace, bless her heart, she made sure the right people got the message about Wacko Jacko as well.The American justice system unfairly favors those of wealth, and those of celebrity standing. If that had been the average Joe Schmoe on trial, Joe would be getting his anus packed every night by Bubba and 20 of his friends. Michael Jackson has been getting away with this for two decades. It had to stop. Mesereau may have gotten him off the hook with the legal system, but thank goodness the majority of the world saw through the crap and made their own decision about MJ. 12 three nippled cousin fu*ckers may have let the molester go, but the other 4 billion people in the world said, "WHOA!". Buck stops here, do not pass go, you aren't getting any more of my money.Couple that with his potty raids and cross dressing, yeah he makes the news alright. It ain't every day an escaped pedophile and wannbe transvestite is globe trotting in pedoland. You can keep him Bahrain. We don't want him back. Take a boatload or two of his fans with you, that's all that are left. news://alt.music.michael-jackson
