There are loads of pop and rock musicians who are superstars (and who have become very wealthy). But there are not many of these superstars that have had up to five people accusing them of having sexually molested them as children, as well as having had members of there own staff reporting of unsuitable behavior, or even having to pay 20 MUSD to quieten someone about their allegations. Add to that his own sister calling him a peadophile.
No I'm not suggesting mass amnesia. I hadn't listened to his music for many years, and I have really forgotten a lot of his songs.
Of course you are free to do what you like - you might just want to think about it sometimes when you listen to his music - that when he wasn't singing and dancing and making music, in his spare time, he would commit peadophile crimes.
You might want to think about why Robinson wanted his wedding at Neverland. Why did he testify for Michael at his trial? Why wasn't Michael Jackson convicted of any crimes? Why did Robinson want to be the head choreographer in the Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil? Right after they told him no, he tried to sell a book, which no one wanted. Why did'nt HBO have an alternative viewpoint? Why did Robinson set up a charity? Because it's the only way he can get money. You think about how you would convict someone without valid proof. In your life guilty until proven innocent. I hope no one accuses you of anything, because you would be guilty just because there is an accusation. I hope you're not a Catholic, or listen to Elvis. According to Priscilla, they were intimate when she was just 14. I will enjoy Michael Jackson's music until I'm death or dead.
Michael Jackson's music shouldn't be banned at all, even if he did do something bad to two boys back in the 90s. Doing so is an act of dictatorship, and a dictatorship is what we, both the people and the law, will never allow our government to become at all. If there are people who don't want to listen to this music, they don't have to listen to them at all. That doesn't mean everybody's banned from listening to it. Michael Jackson is not a bad guy at all to everybody, even if a few see him as that.
Buddy just don't listen to him, I love MJ's music and little **bleep** heads like you shouldn't take that away from people that love him. He didn't do anything to you or me. So take your concerns to some other streaming services that no one else cares about and you can complain there.
His music should not be removed from the platform, because many people love his music and even more of them like to just casually go "Billie Jean" on a Thursday evening. Removing an artist's discography from a streaming platform (or store) because a group of people hates him... Is controlling what other people should or shouldn't listen to. Censorship.
I don't like him (his music) that much, but I wouldn't go and take away the happiness MJ is associated with for other listeners.
You don't have to listen to anything you dislike.
I love those artists who have only music. No personal lives, nothing else. Just music you can't even put a face on. It feels free.
