American Midol: Jacko, Porno, Court-o, Uh-Oh! (A Michael Jackson Primer, Part 2 = The Quick-Spit Facts)
Feb 7 2005 by Lani VoivodMichael Jackson's sordid saga began in Part 1 = Before the Neverland Sting. And without further ado, here's Part 2.
"Please keep an open mind and let me have my day in court. I deserve a fair trial like every other American citizen. I will be acquitted and vindicated when the truth is told."
-Michael Jackson, in a statement read to Fox News' Geraldo Rivera – and the world – in January, 2005
Oh, I don't know about that, Michael. The evidence appears a tad too incriminating to be totally innocent. And even though many of us truly want to believe you – you've given us some of the best music, the best videos, the best dancing, and the best celebrity-gawking of our lives – you've made it pretty darn hard.
EXHIBIT A: Just the Facts
I imagine OJ Simpson reclining on a lounge chair, orally fondling an illegally-imported stogie, and grinning from ear to murderous ear. For this Michael Jackson mess is not merely a celebrity-persecution, not solely a public stoning of moonwalk proportions.
It's much, MUCH bigger.
We've saved the most lurid and climactic for last in Part 3 = An Elite Selection of Juicy, Lewd, and Sordid Details. Drive it home!
