Many people would pass up listening to the styles
of the new/old Michael Jackson, but do you know
why? Why do people absolutely refuse to claim they
have ever heard his music? Why do parents ban their
children's CD selection from some of his greatest
hits, like Bad, or Thriller? Why do people hate him?
Many reasons of course, some lies, some true, some
public..and some private.
As the story unfolds, Michael was very famous
from the beginning {of his life}. He started at such a
young age, he doesn't remember much. His
memories are so vague, he can't remember why a lot
of people began hating him at THAT age. Well, one
thing was that his sister's, LaToya, and Janet, weren't
included. In his book, "Moonwalk", written a few
years back, he stated that people would see them on
the streets and shun them, saying they were "sexist
siblings" and "they should let the girls be in the
group." Michael, of course, had no choice in this
whole ordeal, which was hard on him, because him
and Janet got along well, at the early ages. Seeing
and hearing this stuff made Michael very optimistic,
and sensitive on the situation.
When Michael was in the Jackon-5, he had
absolutely no freedoms. He would have late-night
recordings, and would have troubles in school. Most
of his attention from his parents was on the business,
they never gave him the attention he lacked, he was
pretty lonely.
After Michael grew up, and he moved on in his
career out of J-5, he was thought low of to everyone
in the music/movie industry. Brooke Shields once
quoted that he was a "lowly-person, who needed
help", plus some other things that cannot be said.
Jackson did have some people of whom thought
very high of him, Elizabeth Taylor was one of his best
friends throughout the hard stages. He looked up to
her, and vise versa. With the help of her, he got
through the depression of his family members
(LaToya mostly) disliking him, and disapproving of
him....
