    Michael Jackson: Paedophile

    Agree with you @Nonoka - I wouldn't continue to respond to a lot of the dogmatic comments here that are based on subjective emotional responses and speculation unsupported by solid evidence. It's obviously a very controversial subject for us all. But you have no reason to feel complicit or shamed in being an MJ fan. You know there are people here with egos that simply must have the last word and they must be right irrespective of solid evidence. I completely agree with your very rational view point which seeks to form judgements and opinions on the basis of research and tangible evidence rather than subjective emotional responses and speculation.

    2019 Grammy Awards

    My thoughts on this years Grammy's after seeing the list of nominees = what a steaming pile of utter shit!

    Michael Jackson: Paedophile

    The impression I get from him here is of someone laughing out of disbelief and at the ridiculousness of the allegations made about him and the media/judicial fanfare surrounding the accusations. If you have a clear conscience and still have repeated allegations brought against you time after time which you believe to be untrue then of course you might crack up about the absurdity of it all at some point. Was he a weirdo for surrounding himself with so many children including boys and girls in his adult life - yes. Did he have a messiah complex - yes. Was he inappropriate, yes. Was he a pedophile? Court rulings say no. Not to mention the factual evidence regarding his accusers highlights so many glaring contradictions and inconsistencies that these stories would not be sufficient enough to make a case in a court of law.

    Michael Jackson: Paedophile

    You're very welcome. I think we just need to bear in mind there are often more than two sides to any story. In fact there are a myriad of perspectives to any given situation and it's important we factor these in before making sweeping ignorant judgements about people being pedophiles or sexual predators on the basis of sensational and emotive media content or opinions and comments via social media. It's very much a trend now where we see social media campaigns against very famous and successful men in society. In some cases these claims are legitimate where the due legal process must definitely be applied (e.g. Harvey Weinstein, R. Kelly, et al) however in other cases it's not so cut and dry. This growing appetite for trial by social media or emotive media content rather than trial on account of actual FACTS makes me feel uneasy about the current climate we live in. It's also worrying that many people seem to blindly lap up the abundance of non-fact based media bullshit that's forced down their throats instead of questioning, enquiring further and forming their own critiques before casting their judgment.

    Michael Jackson: Paedophile

    To the majority of queens on this forum having emotive reactions to 'Leaving Neverland' may I suggest you watch this video before you label anyone a disgusting pedophile or before you make sweeping accusations about MJ only befriending young males. Ensure you are truly examining the FACTS before succumbing to a warped perspective.

    Michael Jackson: Paedophile

    Sorry, but that Wade Robson guy does not seem genuine to me at all. How can someone testify in a court of law saying that MJ was 'innocent' and then again on live television in 2003 to later come forward to completely contradict themselves a decade after MJ's death is suspicious to me. And no, I am not victim blaming here, I'm simply basing this on the evidence. Look at him here in this interview on Jimmy Kimmel acting cool as a cucumber when asked about MJ...it just doesn't stack up!
  8. The advert makes sweeping generalisations about men which I will agree comes across as condescending towards them. I think it would be very interesting to see an advert targeting 'toxic femininity' in order to counter-balance the argument here. And yes, it does exist where females will use "sneakier" or less overt ways to exercise violence, power and control, particularly evident in working cultures and educational establishments. As a gay man who I guess outwardly appears '"straight", I have experienced this first hand on frequent occasions throughout my working life to the extent I would class this as sexist discrimination from females on the basis of gender, and in some instances, sexuality. Yes, men can sometimes be rotten hideous people but they can also be magnificent individuals - conversely as women can be. There just seems to be a constant discourse in society that seems to encourage the disparagement and disrespect of men which isn't really solving the problem of 'toxic masculinity' due to the inherent negativity within the discourse. Just as women should be championed and supported, men deserve to be championed and supported too as this may help them to steer clear of the path of 'toxic masculinity'. And no, I am not a misogynist, rapist, murderer, abuser or even a person who is necessarily 'politically correct'. I am just someone who believes in balance and fairness.

    Troye Sivan

    I think My My My! is one of the most interesting pop productions I've heard in a long time...I think it was referred to as fantasy-pop or utopian-pop when it was first released. Bloom is also gem of a pop song. I can see Troye achieving even bigger things in the future.

    Fabulous Boy George Interview

    Love him or loathe him - he is an icon and a trailblazer...not to mention a supremely talented songwriter. I used to dislike him as a teenager only because I was more obsessed with Madonna but as an adult I see how much he and Culture Club have done for the LGBT community and culture at large.

    Your top albums of 2018

    Top 3 albums from 2018 include: 1. All Saints - Testament 2. Kacey Musgraves - Golden Hour 3. Troye Sivan - Bloom
  12. I actually thought it was a joke when I first heard this song. It's REALLY REALLY BAD! Had no expectations from Smith but as a Harris follow-up to 'One Kiss' it's atrocious in comparison.
  13. Yes, Red Flag was a good album but not as solid as Testament. They really have made some great music. Quite underrated imo!
