I never did believe that he did that either. I think Michael Jackson was a lost boy--I don't think he ever had any malice or meanness in him, I just think he was forever stuck on trying to get back the childhood that he never had and never could have and longed for. He was a brilliant performer but it never filled the hole that his father and his fame left him with. I think the emptiness of stardom crushed him. With the one hand people idolized and demanded everything he could give them, and with the other they isolated and rejected him. I still feel sad for him.
