Leg over like Mike

A guide on how to navigate hearing Michael Jackson's music in public post-Leaving Neverland noncetroversy. Read on to find out if you can still do the Thriller zombie dance at your local pub's next Halloween party without fear of getting bottled.


* P.Y.T aside, anything up to Thriller is socially acceptable because Pop's #Problematic Fave™ probably wasn't fiddling kids at that point. Thus, you can still dance to owt from Off The Wall, and it's still okay to shake a leg to all the Jackson 5's choonz (except for ABC because it's now the most played-out bait DJ tune of all time.)

* Any of the good songs from Bad can still be enjoyed within the privacy of your own home, but you're on shaky ground enjoying them in public because the (Jonathan) King Of Pop™ was clearly a serial pederast by 1987. Note: if you do still bump anything from Bad for your own pleasure this means you can no longer watch The Lost Boys in good conscience because Jackson had already bummed Corey Feldman and Corey Haim by that point.

* Anything after Bad is 100% No Play Zone territory. Partially because Mickey Mars Bar Jackson was in raging nonce-mode by that point, but mainly because his post-80s music was utter shite. I'm not saying bad taste in music is a crime on a par with paedophilia, but anyone who actually enjoys Earth Song or We Are Not Alone probably deserves chemical castration.

Don’t disrespect “Remember The Time” (all time great new jack swing song), “Butterflies” (last great Michael Jackson single released while he was alive and written by a fellow Brit & r&b great Marsha Ambrosius) and “Love Never Felt So Good (the solo version because it was a demo from 1982)

Remember The Time is okay, but the lyrics are proper noncey.

After this might wanna edit out the Corey Feldman part https://www.instagram.com/p/Buo5LlmlKjg/?hl=en

Obviously he doesn't wanna admit Jackson molested him innit.

James said...

This reasoning means it's safe for me to enjoy 'Rock N Roll Part 2' by Gary Glitter

Is accusing people of sexual assault the sixth element of hip hop now? Every week The martorialist is branding somebody a nonce or dredging up old songs or videos to take shots at known sex offenders.What next? you gonna burn down the home of that guy who released "World Ultimate?"

Is TheCritIQ #TeamMJInnocent?

I'm incredibly thankful there's a rapper called The Nonce, tbh. Never fails to make me chuckle.

On one hand, I'm bummed I can't listen to "Man in the Mirror" from in my car anymore. On the other hand, I'm happy all those Neil Hamburger jokes are officially okay to laugh at now. Taketh and giveth.

I bought a used copy of Chocolate Factory right before that Lifetime series aired and I still haven't had the stones to stick it in the old 6 disc. I don't know if I'm waiting til he goes to prison or what.

I wanna know what's gonna happen to all the Moonwalker machines still sitting in grubby seaside arcades across the world if Jackon gets officially #cancelled?

I don't know if Michael Jackson raped all those boys. I did hear that when he recruited the Coreys into NAMBLA though, he was sturring Charlie Sheen's porridge.

Mystikal R Kelly and Bill Cosby walk into a Michael Jackson bar said...

Michael Jackson did not rape the Coreys. The last thing Michael would ever want to do would be to stir Charlie Sheen's porridge.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

^^ 2 comments by the same person? Or has cosmic unconciousness got "stirring Charlie Sheen's porridge" on 2 people's minds at the same damn time?

Who's stirring Charlie Sheen's porridge now? said...

Repeat post in error.

Handy coincidence, though, because we were looking up shit celebrity tattoos in the pub last night and found this and this.

Amber Rudd is a racist said...

After watching that Leaving Neverland doco, I will never be able to hear beyonce's "Cos if you liked it then you should have put a ring on it" lyric in the same way.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Ain't gonna lie, I didn't actually bother watching it,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3S0N20zxCU don't think this song is good but it was a pleasant surprise to hear Juvenile on the radio again.

john said...

It's fitting that you posted a new Birdman song in a thread about music industry pedophiles. But you're right, always nice to hear Juvenile.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

I've never heard it.

David said...

"Stranger in Moscow" is A+ later MJ imo

TP-2 is probably R's best album
