You're some man for nuanced views when it's someone you likeI think everyone had their mind made on him years ago. I'll get round to the doc some point soon. I watched a one minute interview with the director and two lads the other day and immediately went HE'S GUILTY, WHY WOULD ANYONE LIE?
My more nuanced view is as follows:
MJ wasn't above the law but he was beyond the norms of behaviour, and we made him that way. Whether guilty or innocent (based on the evidence I have seen I say innocent myself but understand why someone would say guilty) he was clearly quite damaged and it was our own fame industry that did it to him. Declaring him cancelled ten years after his death isn't going to change any of this, it sounds to me more like us trying to clear our own guilty consciences as a society.
Having said that, if all this hubbub is us starting to make the needed changes to society then good, maybe we'll stop putting 11 year old youtube sensations on Ellen or making new Justin Biebers or the like. If he's guilty then he's guilty and I assume more people will come out against him, if he's innocent then at least we're attacking a man who has already passed and hopefully the truth will out in time. I'd rather a dead innocent victim than a live one. I do feel bad for his kids though. I suppose their millions will console them, eh?
and the fact that his art was greatly influenced by others (Quincy Jones, for example) would make it seem a bit unfair on them, for us to dismiss his output completely.He made great records, so there's an interesting conversation maybe about where his art stands
Not really, it's more just him talking for an hour about stuff that interests him. He often talks about woke things but in a way that might get a lad who prefers going to the gym and going on the lash to being scolded on woke Irish twitter all day to actually consider the issues. I've kind of stopped listening but I enjoyed it for a good while.I haven't listened to that because someone tells me about it every day. Is it the late late show for woke Irish Twitter?
