Was Michael Jackson a WOMANIZER?

Please visit its blog

March 31, 2010

Shocking isn't it? How can a man known for asexuality be associated with such a term? Well, perhaps the surprise lies more on what's been told to us rather than what could be a likely reality.

Think back and recall, what exactly lead you to believe Michael Jackson was asexual? Forget the rumors of homosexuality, I won't even bother covering or grazing that, so back on topic - where does this assumption lie? Is it because of his shy demeanor? Or is it the fact that MJ has never had a publicized romantic interlude without a raised eyebrow?

Tatum O'Neal? Shamone! A 12 year old (at the time of the courtship) with a distant philandering father who overlooked the welfare of his children - so why take a word of a woman who….. let's be honest, has her own very well-publicized issues?

Brooke Shields? A nifty one here, the epitome of ethereal beauty back in the late 70s/early 80s who just so happens had the HOTS for Michael Jackson at the time, or so Randy Taraborelli claims. But why would such a buxom beauty deny this love affair in the 90s, as Tatum did back in the 80s (NOTE: Tatum's idea of a relationship is limited to a sexual one, long gone are the romantic and intense witty dialogue of Jane Austen's courtship, one night stands will do)?

Well, perhaps a recollection of the events in the 90s surrounding Michael Jackson will do. I have my own theories but I'd rather let you come to your own, so I'll merely post articles, interviews & reflections of my case. Here is an interesting assertion making the rounds on every MJ board and site, supposedly it's been attributed to a former employee by the name of Frank Tyson a.k.a. Frank Cascio addressing the Scott Thorson (was Liberace's plaything once upon a time) love affair.

Cascio was one of MJ's kid-buddies who was eventually employed by Michael. He was prominent during the 2005 trial and allegations, defending MJ publicly unwaveringly. But another supposition claims that it is in fact by a former Chief of Security who had retired by 2002 - Wayne Nagin perhaps? Nagin is a well-beloved bodyguard who had retired by September of 2001 due to health reasons, it seems he is well-regarded by many MJ fans who have met him in the past.

Now, this is a letter/post is sourced from the The National Enquirer and was in response to the Scott Thorson allegation. However, we will attempt to address certain points made in it (as difficult as that may be given MJ's strictures on privacy) as subtly as possible with as little commentary as I can muster because this will be one heck of a long read, but boring? Tedious? Or perhaps juicy?

(Note: There come here some comments about several girlfriends he had but I think the language is not proper, so I don't publish it.)

An this is the summary:

1. He's weird, he's rich, he's black and he never bows down to anybody. He doesn't fit any stereotypes of what a black man "should" be, which makes people uncomfortable and enables them to believe anything sinister about him. If you need proof of that, just look no further than this very message board.

2. He kept Diana a secret because that's what the hussy wanted and by the time he got his sh.it together enough to move on and get with other women, he was so obsessed with his privacy that he didn't want the public to know anything about him that didn't have to do with music or business (and rightfully so, everything he does is misconstrued, manipulated and taken out of context).

3. Can't help you there, that's something you don't really discuss with Michael. All I can say is that it got more out of hand after he and Diana were officially no more. Nobody around him ever condoned it, I know I certainly didn't. In all fairness to the kid, most of it is exaggerated. He's had a lot, but to a fairly localized area, none of this crazy cheekbone, eyebrow, eyelid, forehead stuff. But what does plastic surgery have to do with whether or not he's a pedophile or a homosexual? Nothing. He's got a good heart, I don't give two sh.its about his face.

Now, how exactly does one look into this? Perhaps an insight into little Michael Jackson as opposed to adult Michael Jackson is deserving of notice. It seems the Michael we of the later generation got to know or perceive was not the same Michael as a youngster. Michael Jackson it seems had a tweak or change in his personality at a certain age. Now whether that was intentional for publicity's sake or a life changing event like puberty, you decide.

Teen Star Magazine Interview
1972 (14 years old!)

Q: Michael, your fans want to know your ideas about a first date!

MJ: On a first date, I like to bring a girl over to my house for a barbeque and a swim, especially on a warm summery evening! I know that some chicks get mad if you don't take them somewhere fancy and spend alot of money on them on a date, but I'm not interested in those kinds of girls. I want someone who I can feel comfortable with just sitting and talking to, or sharing a fun, casual time with! I'm not sayin' that we wouldn't ever go out. I love to go out to movies, concerts, and restaurants, but I think it's important to know one another on a first date, and you can't if you go to watch somethin' all night!

Q: Are you a 'gentleman' on a date?

MJ: I never gave it much thought. Opening doors for girls is something that I just do automatically without thinking, like scratchin' my head when it itches! When you're taught all your life to do polite things for girls, you just can't forget it! It's second nature to you, like breathing or tapping your feet to music!

Q: How do you feel about kissing on a first date?

MJ: I can dig it! I think that if you dig a chick enough to ask her out, you're crazy if you don't want to kiss her. And, if she accepted the date, she likes you and probably wants to be kissed. So, I couldn't think of any reason why you shouldn't! I think I'd like to wait 'till the end of the date before I kissed her, though! I think most girls are afraid you're comin' on too fast if you kiss them right away. But, if I could tell that chick I was with was just waitin' to be kissed, I wouldn't mess around wastin' time! I'd take her in my arms, bend her face back to rest on the back of her seat, and slowly lean toward her, gazin' into her eyes and talking in a slow, smooth voice. Then, I'd press my lips against hers, gently at first, then harder and harder until we're both lost in a soul kiss of true love.

Q: How do you feel about honesty between a guy and a girl?

MJ: I think that bein' honest with one another is important when you're gettin' serious with a chick, and don't want to have her goin' out with other guys. You have to be loyal and true to one another, or your love will never last! But, when you're dating lots of chicks, and the chicks you date go with other guys, honesty isn't so important. Don't get me wrong, though! I don't think lyin' to someone is ever a good or a smart thing to do! But, as long as you haven't made any promises to each other, you have the right to keep some things for yourself! For instance, if you've been dating a chick on and off and she dates other guys, and she asks you where you were when she phoned your house and didn't get an answer, I don't think it's any of her business to know you were out with a different girl! I don't think I have the right to pry into her life either!

Q: What would you do if you fell in love with a girl who was going steady with someone else?

MJ: Well, if I knew from the beginning that she was going with another guy, I probably wouldn't date her, no matter how much I wanted to! But, if I didn't know she was going steady, and I found out after I fell in love with her, I think I'd be pretty mad! Even if I thought that she didn't do it to be cruel, and was just too scared to tell him her true feelin's, I think I'd tell her in a kind, understanding way, to figure out what she was gonna do, and come back after she'd done it.

Q: Michael, what do you admire in others?

MJ: I admire people who are really dedicated to their music and to entertaining people! That's why I admire Sammy Davis Jr, and hope to be like him when I grow up! He's a super professional, who puts a spell over his audience like some kind of magician. Singin' and dancin' his heart out to give his audience a thrill they'll never forget. It takes many years to get like that, and that's my goal.

Q: What is the one thing you dislike in a person?

MJ: I guess it's conceited, snobbish people that really bother me! Some people are very egotistical, and think they're better than everyone else! They're always talkin' about themselves, and can't listen to you when you're trying to tell them something about yourself. They keep looking around to see if someone's lookin' at them, instead of looking directly at you, listening to what you're sayin'! It's like talking to a stone wall. When I meet a chick like that, I just turn off right away!

Q: Here's a hard question - what one thing in your personality would you change if you could?

MJ: Well, my Mom says that I'm a procrastinator, which means that I put off things I don't want to do. I know that it's better to get things out of the way as soon as you can, like cleaning your room, or doing your chores but sometimes I have a hard time gettin' around to them and keep putting them off!

One promise I'll make for you for sure is that if I win STAR Magazine's Superstar of '72 election, I'm gonna be so happy that I'll grab you wherever and whenever we meet, and give you a big kiss to thank you for bein' my fan and for giving me your vote! I always like to show my fans that I dig them and appreciate all they've done for me by holdin' their hand and lookin' right in their eyes as I talk to them (MJ is such a pimp)! When a chick takes the time and trouble to come see me, no matter where I am or how busy I am, I'm gonna do all I can so that when she leaves she'll really feel that it was worth her while! Here are my promises:

Promise Number One: Whether or not I win the title Superstar of '72, I'm going to continue to work even harder at putting together an exciting show (like learning to play the piano!), so that when you come to see us sing and dance, you'll remember our show all your life!

Promise Number Two: I promise that we'll try to make our concert costumes real 'baaad' (future foreshadowing) and foxy to keep you turned on! And I want you to send me any J-5 costume ideas you might have!

Promise Number Three: I promise to bring lots of personally autographed pictures of the J-5 on the road with me, so that when I see you in concert, you'll have something to really remember us by!

Promise Number Four: To love and cherish each of my sweet-faced fans forever

CLUE # 3: MOONWALK (Michael Jackson's One & Only Autobiograpy)

…..the nightclub crowds weren't the same as the Roosevelt High crowds. We were playing between bad comedians, cocktail organists, and strippers.
We worked in more than one club that had strippers in those days. I used to stand in the wings of this one place in Chicago and watch a lady whose name was Mary Rose. I must have been nine or ten. This girl would take off her clothes and her panties and throw them to the audience. The men would pick them up and sniff them and yell. My brothers and I would be watching all this, taking it in, and my father wouldn't mind. We were exposed to a lot doing that kind of circuit. In one place they had cut a little hole in the musician's dressing room wall that also happened to act as a wall to the ladies' bathroom. You could peek through this hole, and I saw stuff I've never forgotten. Guys on that circuit were so wild, they did stuff like drilling holes into the walls of the ladies' loo all the time. Of course, I'm sure that my brothers and I were fighting over who got to look through the hole. "Get outta the way, it's my turn!" Pushing each other away to make room for ourselves. ----------

Michael Tells: 'I'm A Girl Watcher!'
Tiger Beat; September 1972

Have you ever had that weird feeling that someone was staring at you-watching your every move? If you have, you might discover that the someone is none other than Michael Jackson!

He was leaning against the tree, whistling a nameless little tune. The sky-so blue that it hurt the eyes to stare up too long. But that was all right because he wasn't looking at the sky. His eyes were busy elsewhere!

Michael grinned to himself. There was nothing that could stop what he was doing right now! Standing here so casually, with his thumbs stuck through his belt loops, no one could guess that he was practicing an art.


Michael always says it with a smile but he's serious when he calls girl watching 'an art'!
When asked, he'll explain that it takes a lot of practice to 'eyeball chicks' without being noticed. For one thing, Michael knows that it's very rude to stare at a person openly. That's why he's perfected a technique that never gives him away.

Why did he go through all this trouble?

'Because I really don't want to offend anyone by watching them. Some people really get uptight if they know someone is looking at them. But I have this weakness-I love looking at girls!'
'Just watching a girl can give me the best reason to smile. Girls are something very special and you got to treat them that way. That's why I always say don't stare right at a chick. She'll begin to fidget, wondering if her hair's messed up or if her make-up is smeared. It's kind of like going to an art gallery to see beautiful paintings. If you look at a painting just the right way, you get the most out of it!


It's very normal for a young, healthy, and great looking guy like Michael to enjoy girl watching. Every guy his age has put in time standing around just enjoying the lovely view of girls passing by! But, some guys like to look at girls and then rate them according to the way she's dressed or how pretty she is. Not Michael. He has his own reasons.

'The guys who are doing the rating are missing the whole point. They're so busy counting up the scores that they're not looking-I mean really looking at the girls.'

'The way a girl walks. You can tell a lot from the walk. If she's happy or sad-if she's proud of being a girl. And then, there are the chicks that look so helpless that I want to rush over to them and put my arms around them!'

'And if I'm lucky enough to be close enough to see her face-well, that's like your favourite dessert after a fine meal!'
'The eyes-do they wink at you? What makes them shine like they do? Love? Or just happy at being alive?'
'And the mouth. Is it smiling at some secret? Or is she just doing her best to spread a little happiness by smiling at every person she sees?'

Michael's list goes on and on. He can spend hours on a windy day seeing how the wind plays with long hair, short hair, dark hair, light hair. Or he can stare at the girls' hands. Does she hold them still when she sits? Or are they part of her communicating methods? Do her hands come alive in conversation-gesturing wildly to emphasize her words?

But mostly, Michael just wants the time to watch and see the whole picture-the whole person. He likes everybody but the girls are still, for him, 'something very special!'

If he was one of those guys who rated the chicks he saw, Michael would be spending all his money on paper to add up the high scores for each girl. Because to him, each girl is a winner-simply by being a girl-by being someone special-by being the very girl he might be staring at this very moment-with a smile on his face.

The Magic, the Madness, the Whole Story: 1958-2009 (J. Randy Taraborelli)

According to Brett-Livingston-Stone, when Michael was about to leave, he offered Lisa a penetrating look and, in a conspiratorial voice, said, 'You and me, we could get into a lot of trouble. Think about that, girl.'


He was truly misunderstood, he told her. 'I know you think I'm gay,' he said. 'But I'm not. I get tired of people thinking I am gay. But, oh well, fuck them. I know you have heard a lot of things about me, in fact,' he continued, 'but most of it isn't true. And the stuff that is true, you shouldn't hold it against me.' He winked at her.
'Hey, I'm a married woman,' Lisa said. 'And you're coming on to me.'
'Yes, but are you happy?' Michael asked.
'See?' Michael remarked. 'I knew that. You look like a woman who needs to let go and have some fun. You look like a woman who needs to hook up with me.'

Lisa was unable to disguise her surprise at his candour and his…normality. She recalled staring at him thinking, Who is this man? She was right to be perplexed; he sure wasn't acting like the Michael Jackson others had known over the years. It was as if he had taken macho lessons from Joseph! Unbeknownst to Lisa, many people along the way had tried to put together the puzzle pieces of Michael's mercurial psychology, often flattering themselves into thinking they and they alone understood him better than others. It usually ended badly for them; they would learn that Michael is truly the only one who understands Michael.


On February 1994, Michael telephoned Lisa Marie Presley at her estate in Hidden Hills, California. He was at his hide-out in Westwood. 'Hey, listen up, girl,' he said, according to her memory, 'I'm heading up to Ls Vegas to see The Temptations and The Fifth Dimension. Come with me. I'll get us a suite at the Mirage and we can party like there's no tomorrow.'
'Am I staying in the suite with you?' she asked.
'Hell, yeah,' Michael said. 'What do you think, girl?'
'I think I'm still married,' Lisa said.
'Then separate rooms, if that's what you want,' Michael responded.

Did they make love? Lisa, say her friends, is a woman who enjoys physical intimacy and would not become involved in a relationship that was not sexual.

………In truth, Lisa and Michael had an intense and active sex life, which came as a surprise to many people……...'Apparently, Michael Jackson is a freak in bed,' said Lisa's friend Monica Pastelle. 'Lisa said he was amazing, and she's been around. Everyone was saying, "No way, Lisa. It can't be true. Michael Jackson? Are we talking about the Michael Jackson, the one with the glove?" However, she wasn't joking, and it wasn't long before she didn't think it was funny, either.'

CLUE #10: Fan Recollection of 'She's Out Of My Life'


I want to tell you that i am one of the girls that went on stage with Michael Jackson back in 1993. I will skip details like how I bought the tickets, how I went to the stadium, how the atmosphere was…that's not interesting and fades away when the real important moment comes. The moment that he reached his hand for me and I went on stage. I felt like everybody else disappeared, that me and Michael were the only persons alive, not only in that place, but on the entire Globe. I was 21 years old back then so I was no teenager with a random crush.

I was a young woman that knew exactly what she feels. And I can say that I was deeply in love with him. I loved him with such awareness and passion, I loved him so tender and pure. He was and still is in my opinion the most beautiful human being possible, on the inside and outside too. I was so deeply in love with him that I was missing him sometimes without ever meeting him in person, I was dreaming at his kiss and his touch like I have experienced them before.

But, oh…I did …I did kissed him and caressed him and hugged him so many times in my mind. I guess that's why, when I finally got to do it for real it felt so familiar. When he took my hand in his that evening on stage, all my emotions, all my trembling and my fears disappeared and all I felt was warmth and peace and calm. I felt like I finally found my place on this earth, I felt like coming home after a long long travel. I felt I belonged there, by his side, holding his hand. I never forgot not even one detail about that few minutes with him. I still feel how soft his skin was.

The moment from when he took my hand until I reached his arms, embracing what I feel it was the warmest hug in the world , seemed to me like the longest second in my life. It was like slow motion, I had time to see all his features, in the smallest details, I saw my image in the crystal clear of his eyes, I saw how he inspired and exhaled air, I saw the little drops of sweat on his forehead. My God, he was just perfect. That moment was perfect. I felt like being part of a picture, I felt I had all the time in the world to look in his eyes and discover all that's hidden there. But no, the power of his embrace kind of awaken me, I started hearing his voice as he was hugging me. He was singing in my ear but I couldn't really hear the words, I just heard his angelic voice and I remember I was very concentrated on the warmth of his breath pounding my ear and cheek. Then I pressed my cheek on his in the need of feeling his skin…and oh, it was soft and warm and his hair was caressing my face and I put my nose on his neck and I will remember all my life the way his skin smelled. It was like no other perfume or skin I ever scented after.

I spent many hours in perfume shops over the years trying to find that one fragrance but I couldn't. I guess its because its said that perfumes smell different on every man depending on his skin and body temperature. Anyway, for me, that is the smell of Heaven. After, you can imagine I watched the video tape with me on stage a thousand times and I can see that I was kinda dancing, my feet were moving and I smiled while tears were coming out from my eyes but I have to tell u honestly, that I don't recall myself moving at all.

For me that moment was still and quiet and romantic and very, very tender. I felt like we were two lovers after making love, just laying there in bed caressing each other and staring in each others eyes. I kissed Michael on the cheek and on his hand while he was caressing my face , and I kissed his neck. I totally believe that kissing a mans neck is so intimate and sexy and I was trembling and I can swear on God that he was too. And then is when I went crazy and tried to kiss him on his lips and no matter what everybody believes or not, we really kissed. I took him by surprise kissing his lips and he gentle tried to push me away at first but I caressed him and looked into his eyes between tears and he stared at me and that's when he kissed me back with so much love. Ill remember all my life that his lips were very soft but kind of cold, or maybe it seemed to me being cold in comparing with his very hot breath.

He took my lower lip in his mouth and grabbed it a little with his teeth, after he released it we stood a few seconds like that mouth to mouth and I whispered "I love you Michael" and then he put his mouth near my ear and he said: "I love you more" but he put an accent on the word YOU, like he was letting me know that he really means what he says , he really has this feeling for me, hes not just saying this like a cliché. Then he hold me very tight in his arms a few moments and I did the same, I felt like neither one of us wanted to let go. But while we were holding each other the bodyguard came and took me away. And i swear he didn't want to, he didn't called for them, he hadn't how to sign them cause his hands were busy holding me and he was looking straight into my eyes, so he couldn't wink or anything else.

I guess someone backstage saw that Michael forgot about time and this moment is taking too long and so sent the bodyguard in. I remember when the bodyguard grabbed me I tightened my arms around Michaels neck and he did the same, instead of trying to get away, he grabbed me stronger. I knew in that instant that whatever will happen from now on and whatever will people think, me and Michael had a really intimate moment there on stage, infront of thousands of people we were in love.

After I went back at my place it was crazy, everybody wanted to touch me, they were pulling me back and forth, asking me all kind of questions, almost reaping my clothes off of me, it was insane but I didn't care, I didn't pay any attention, not even to my friends. I was just looking at Michael, searching for his look and trust me, I found it. He was looking after me in the crowd while he was finishing the song and when our eyes found each other it was magic. Tears were rushing out of my eyes and his eyes were on tears too. I felt such a pain in that moment, I felt my heart was torn into little pieces like I have broken with a lover after 7 years of relationship. In fact, there were like 3 minutes in the arms of my lover. And it was painful cause I realized it was an impossible love, those 3 minutes were more intense that anything else I lived by then and after but that was all there was to this story. I know he felt it too but we were a God and a mortal human being that could never have a life together.

He finished the song called by faith "She's out of my life" in tears, he stood for a few moments on stage, with his wet eyes staring at me and then he disappeared. He came back after a few minutes and went on with the show. I stayed till the end, of course, but I couldn't enjoy the songs and the entertainment anymore. I was in pain.

In the days that followed the concert, I confided in a few friends and told them all I wrote here but nobody believed me or understood me. They thought I was making up that kiss we had, they said I was covering our faces with my hand just to create the illusion that we were kissing and that he let me only for publicity and that he probably had a signal with the bodyguards when they came to take me and that his tears at the end of the song were routine for him, he was just acting cause he is also a good actor not only a singer. They told me im imagining him looking at me from the stage back in the crowd and so on.

Well, I didn't blame them for not believing me but I stopped saying this story to anyone. When I was asked about that moments I just said it was great, I feel very lucky, he was very nice and good to me and that's all. I kept that moment for myself cause I believe that's how was meant to be, a private moment between me and him.

I loved him dearly all my life and I will love him till I will close my eyes forever. And again, let me remind you, im not telling that I love him like a memory, like an idol, like the king of pop…I love him deeply like my lover, I missed him every second of my life, I was worried for him when he was sick, I suffered for him when he was in trouble, I was jealous when he got married, I was happy when he had his kids, I smiled and I cried with him and now….now when he is gone im devastated.

I cant sleep and I cant eat, I cant stop crying, I cant stop blaming myself and everyone else for not doing something to help him. I took him for granted, I got myself to believe from that moment when we looked at each other on that stadium that he was a God and so I never got myself to write a letter or to try to get in contact with him again. And now im so sorry for that, maybe I could've done something to help him, maybe he needed to know that he is loved and not alone.

I am now 38 years old and I am married, although I never told my husband he knows I never loved him like I love Michael and I never will. He witnessed me a lot of times looking at the tape from that concert and crying. But he knows I love him too and I value our marriage and our family and he didn't even get upset when I called our son Michael.

Little Michael is now 10 years old and of course he knows he was named after the great Michael Jackson and I took care to introduce him to his work and now he loves him too. He listens to his music and he watches his videos and he always talks with a great admiration about him. I told him all about Michaels life, about what great soul he had, about his charity work, about him loving all human beings and nature and animals, about how he turned the other cheek to the people that harmed him and he never wanted revenge.I taught my son to be good and caring and loving and giving person. And I believe that would do Michael smile from up there in Heaven where he is right now.

It was not easy for me to tell you this story but there have been 16 years since I last told it and now that he is gone I felt like I needed to let it out once again.

It comforts me knowing that we had a precious moment that I cherished all my life and I know he felt the same and he kept that moment in his memory too. I loved him all my life and I always will and I believe that even for a few minutes he was in love with me too.

Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity and may God bless his gentle soul!

I love you Michael, forever

CLUE #11: Diana Ross

The videos & excerpts below are those which I believe to be true as they are substantiated by other sources, sources I have gathered here. Now it is striking that MJ's affinity for Diana Ross stemmed from an early age, an early age which clearly depicts a young man with an infatuation. Now, the question here is, was this boyhood crush ever reciprocated? Personally, I believe this infatuation was in fact reciprocated & returned to a certain degree, how & when is up to you to decide. But ponder on those presented below, as well as MJ's earlier albums particularly Off the Wall, and the succeeding albums up to Dangerous. The one thing that I find very telling is their body language, do you see it?

MOONWALK (Michael Jackson's One & Only Autobiograpy)

…..I'm crazy about her. She was my mother, my lover, and my sister all combined in one amazing person.
We still talk now and then, and I guess you'd have to say she was my first love - after Diana. When I heard Diana Ross was getting married, I was happy for her because I knew it would make her very joyous. Still, it was hard for me, because I had to walk around pretending to be overwhelmed that Diana was getting married to this man I'd never met. I wanted her to be happy, but I have to admit that I was a bit hurt and a little jealous because I've always loved Diana and always will.

EBONY 1982

Ebony: Any Black ladies in your life?

Michael: "Sure, but you wouldn't take me seriously."

Ebony: Try me.

Michael: "It's Diana Ross. I love her."

Ebony: Do you mean as a "big sister?"

Michael: "No, that's not what I mean. See, I told you that you wouldn't take me seriously."

Ebony: You're not saying you'd like to marry Diana Ross, are you?

Michael: "Oh yeah, I'm saying that."

Ebony: But she's so much older than you. You mean you feel something other than close friendship for her?

Michael: "Uh huh. And what does age have to do with it? Look at it this way: how old would you be if you didn't even know how old you are?"

Michael Jackson's WILL

…..If any of my children are minors at the time of my death, I nominate my mother, Katherine Jackson as guardian of the persons and estate of such minor children. If Katherine Jackson fails to survive me, or is unable or unwilling to act as guardian, I nominate Diana Ross as guardian of the persons and estates of such minor children.

MJ's Song in Relation to Diana Ross

She's Out of My Life (Off the Wall)
She's Out Of My Life
She's Out Of My Life
And I Don't Know Whether To Laugh Or Cry
I Don't Know Whether To Live Or Die
And It Cuts Like A Knife
She's Out Of My Life
It's Out Of My Hands
It's Out Of My Hands
To Think For Two Years She Was Here
And I Took Her For Granted I Was So Cavalier
Now The Way That It Stands
She's Out Of My Hands

So I've Learned That Love's Not Possession
And I've Learned That Love Won't Wait
Now I've Learned That Love Needs Expression
But I Learned Too Late

She's Out Of My Life
She's Out Of My Life
Damned Indecision And Cursed Pride
Kept My Love For Her Locked Deep Inside
And It Cuts Like A Knife
She's Out Of My Life

Dirty Diana (Bad)
You'll never make me stay
So take your weight off of me
I know your every move
So won't you just let me be
I've been here times before
But I was to blind to see
That you seduce every man
This time you won't seduce me

She's saying that's ok
Hey baby do what you please
I have the stuff the you want
I am the thing that you need
She looked me deep in the eyes
She's touchin' me so to start
She says there's no turnin' back
She trapped me in her heart

Dirty Diana, nah
Dirty Diana, nah
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana
Let me be!

Oh no...
Oh no...
Oh no...

She likes the boys in the band
She knows when they come to town
Every musician's fan after the
curtain comes down
She waits at backstage doors
For those who have prestige
Who promise fortune and fame
A life that's so carefree

She's says that's ok
Hey baby do what you want
I'll be your night lovin' thing
I'll be the freak you can taunt
And I don't care what you say
I want to go too far
I'll be your everything
If you make me a star

Dirty Diana, nah
Dirty Diana, nah
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana...
Dirty Diana, nah
Dirty Diana, nah
Dirty Diana, nah
Dirty Diana, no
Dirty Diana...
Dirty Diana!
It's Dia...aa...aa...ana!

She said I have to go home
'Cause I'm real tired you see
But I hate sleepin' alone
Why don't you come with me
I said my baby's at home
She's probably worried tonight
I didn't call on the phone to
Say that I'm alright
Diana walked up to me,
She said I'm all yours tonight
At that I ran to the phone
Sayin' baby I'm alright

I said but unlock the door.
Because I forgot the key.
She said he's not coming back
Because he's slepping with me

Dirty Diana, nah
Dirty Diana, nah
Dirty Diana, nah
Dirty Diana, no

And the following is a song Diana Ross cowrote from an album released in 1995 'Take Me Higher'.

Drop the Mask

Look in the mirror, who do you see
Where is the man that you used to be
When you turn off the world and turn down the lights
Do you ever wonder who you are tonight

I knew you then, i love you now
You can call me up when it gets you down
Behind the shades there's someone real
Behind your eyes i wonder how you feel

This is me talking to you
There's just one thing i'm asking you to do

You gotta drop the mask, be yourself
Drop the mask
Trust someone else

No one knows what you're going through
Whatever it is, i'll be there for you
If you drop the mask, be yourself
Drop the mask
Trust someone else

I was there when it all began
I still remember the boy within the man
I understand what it means to run and hide
There's so much that we're holding onto deep down inside

This is me talking to you
The only thing that i want you to do

You gotta drop the mask, be yourself
Drop the mask
Trust someone else

No one knows what you're going through
Whatever it is, i'll be there for you
When you drop the mask, be yourself
Drop the mask
Trust someone else

Drop the mask
Drop the mask
Let down your guard, open your heart
Unlose your chains, don't be afraid
Drop the mask
Be yourself
Be yourself
Trust someone else
You gotta drop the mask
Let down your guard, oh you gotta drop the mask
Trust someone else
You gotta drop the mask

Truth revealed Lisa Marie Presley lying over the years

CLUE #13: Tito on his brother's Sexuality

"As far as I've always known, my brother had more sex than I did with women....He definitely wasn't gay. He was not a rugged, beer-slinging type of man. Michael wouldn't beat you up; he would beat you with his brain."
“He definitely wasn’t gay,” says Tito

Was Michael Jackson a womanizer? Perhaps, perhaps not but it does help put our notions on MJ's sexuality in perspective. These links, videos, articles and interviews shows us the extent of the media's distortion of who this man was. We need not flaunt our sexual prowess, escapades and interludes to assert that we are neither asexual nor a homosexual. These are not facts that should be even be publicized but alas there they are and there they are as further evidence to the truth that Michael has insisted on for 30 years. Too late it seems, we are always too late aren't we? But before proceeding to my closing paragraph, let us allow MJ to insist on this point a GIF further.

Why is it even of importance to disprove such rumors? Well, because these rumors were and are part of the cavalcade used to destroy Michael Jackson and his legacy. These were rumors that persisted for 30 unrelenting years, rumors he ardently and viciously denied until the end. These were no longer rumors to be brushed off as these, as well as others, as it took a life of its own spreading falsities instead of truth. And in these falsehoods lies the case of the allegations and negativity surrounding MJ. I think it is our duty as people who are armed with a conscience and impenetrable integrity to admonish and demolish these half-truths, lies and negative sensationalism over a fallen tragic genius the media has relished in destroying, and rebuild what is rightly so - MichaelMania. As for Michael Jackson's curious gap between the young and the adult - it seems the author of this video shares my very sentiments. Perhaps it shares yours as well.
