    OJ had evidence against him. MJ didn't have any. In fact, the kid's descriptions came up as inaccurate as possible when describing MJ's body.

    Sorry, I don't see a guy as a child rapist just because some gold digging bums report it as so. Not when this person was all about helping sick children- not hurting them.

    And now we've got rumors going around that Jordy Chandler is admitting that Jackson never touched him. Isn't that shocking?...
    Anyone can be accused. But I think it's hilarious that people just buy whatever the news is talking about regardless of evidence or logic (or the lacking of).

    He could have done it. But again- so could anyone else. We don't know Billy Mays personally, nor Ed Mac, Farrah, etc. Who knows what skeletons they had in their closet- but they weren't really famous enough to have the focus MJ had either. They also didn't do a fraction of the GOOD that Mike did for the world, either.

    Nope, still nothing. MJ stopped making music a long, long time ago. It might be different if he was at the pinnacle of his career and then died. He was used up talent wise. Brilliant artist back in his time.

    However, I really never cared much for him.

    Good point. Jackson in a way died over a decade ago when instead of focusing on being an artist and entertainer he was enamored with being a freak. The face on that guy looked like someone who had been dead for years already.

    I think Kat Williams said it best when he said "people tried to set up Michael, F a set up, people going to say the same sh** about you for 20 GD years, F a set up. If someone calls you a crackhead for 20 years guess what, you a crack head."

    But yea I am a casual Jackson fan, I like his hit songs and that's about it. Billy Mays entertained me now and was in his prime. That's why I'm much more upset about him than Michael.

    Mays suffered from hypertensive heart disease and that a heart attack was the likely cause of his death.

    No doubt it makes it easier since Jackson had basically died a long time ago.
    But Billy Mays was never good at anything but yelling about a product. Something ANYONE could do. There was no skill there, regardless of what some people may think.

    Give me 1minute to yell about a product, and I'd be a hell of a lot more convincing than Billy Mays ever was.

    If anyone can do it why doesn't everyone do it? Mays lived in a million dollar house gloat, do you?

    Your comments NEVER cease to amaze me.

    How many people get the opportunity to pitch products? lol

    It's easy. Yell about how a product works way better than it ever could. You don't exactly have to be a great salesman to sell pure crap that people are stupid enough to buy anyway.

    I have no idea how to create gimmick products and get on tv to lie about them at 2 am. So you're right- I'm not in a million dollar house.

    It's embarrassing to know that he was.

    I can tell you have no idea what you're talking about but what else is new? As someone who has actually taken a class in selling products on TV I feel somewhat credible on the subject and I can promise you it's harder that it looks, a lot harder.
