  1. Everytime i see some of these MJ fans blindly defending him, i imagine being the little brother/ nephew/ cousin/ son, whatever of one of these fans, being a victim of abuse and still not having the strength/ courage to tell someone about it...watching a loved one blaming/ attacking the victims so viciously would only encourage me to keep my mouth shut feeling terrified of the treatment i would receive...so sad... This documentary shows the whole seduction/ grooming part of the abuse so clearly, i think everyone needs to watch it so people finally understand why sometimes it takes decades for some victims to speak up, why victims often lie, why they seem happy in photos and videos with the abuser, it's so very sick... And kudos to Oprah for doing the show while knowing that she would be destroyed by the fans... At the end of the day, i'd rather believe and support a victim that could potentially be lying, than defending someone who could be a monster of the worst kind...
  2. I think they already changed it last year...they presented the award to Jlo as the "Vanguard Award", no mention of MJ during the whole ceremony... 0:10
  3. 'Leaving Neverland' Draws HBO's Third-Largest Doc Audience in a Decade The two-part film attracted numbers rarely seen for documentaries on the premium cable channel. HBO's documentary Leaving Neverland delivered a sizable audience over its two nights, with the first installment drawing one of the biggest tune-ins for an HBO doc in the past decade. The four-hour film, directed by Dan Reed, features two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, detailing a litany of sexual abuse allegations against late music icon Michael Jackson. (Jackson's estate and surviving family members have denied the allegations.) The doc is the subject of a $100 million lawsuitagainst HBO filed by Jackson's estate, claiming Leaving Neverlandviolates a non-disparagement clause in the contract for a 1992 Jackson concert film that aired on the pay cabler. Part one of Leaving Neverlandaveraged 1.29 million viewers for its first airing on Sunday night, the third-largest audience for an HBO documentary this decade behind Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (1.7 million) and Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (1.6 million). Monday night's conclusion brought in 927,000 viewers, giving the entire film an average of about 1.11 million viewers. The two-day average is also in the upper reaches for HBO documentaries in recent years. Following the doc, the Oprah Winfrey-hosted special After Neverland — featuring interviews with Reed, Robson and Safechuck and an audience of sexual-abuse survivors and their families — drew 780,000 viewers on HBO (it was simulcast on OWN). The initial audience for Leaving Neverland is several times larger than the typical tune-in for HBO documentaries. The last six docs to air on Monday nights on HBO, the outlet's usual featured spot for documentaries, have averaged about 187,000 viewers for their first airings. Across all platforms, part one of Leaving Neverland had gathered 1.7 million viewers as of publication time. Additional figures for part two weren't available. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/leaving-neverland-ratings-third-largest-hbo-doc-2010s-1192299

    SHEILA E. STOP DOGGIN' TIMBERLAKE HOLOGRAM WASN'T HIS IDEA Justin Timberlake wasn't the guy gunning for a Prince hologram during his recent Super Bowl halftime show ... it was a bigger name attached to the show, according to Sheila E. We got Sheila E. at LAX Friday where she told us people need to stop tearing JT apart for his halftime show's Prince tribute since a bigger company was behind the idea. She wouldn't name names, but it's not hard to figure out who she's talking about -- either the NFL or Pepsi, which sponsored the show. http://amp.tmz.com/2018/02/10/sheila-e-justin-timberlake-prince-halftime-show-hologram?__twitter_impression=true

    ^'Social justice warriors' i believe... I agree with Jazzy though, it's not just people on twitter or whatever, the NFL and part of the 'paid media' are clearly behind this too...remember Coldplay's halftime, them paying tribute to every single halftime show except Madonna's? And all those lists from the press who used to pick Madonna as one of the best halftime shows ever, then suddenly she's among the worst or not even listed..? I doubt it's got anything to do with MIA's finger...but who knows
