One of the toughest things of our time is the total brutal transparency we're used to in our culture of pop culture idols. Some of our key entertainment icons have now been passed through the gun as more courageous prosecutors came to tell sharp truths about sexual abuse.
While some still accuse the prosecutors of the lie, compared to Michael Jackson it is much more complicated to the legends like Bill Cosby. Considering that Jackson is no longer alive and so deeply affected, this has logically created a big rift in the fan base.
Will it be done sometime in the near future? Let's take a look how things could turn out.
It does not help if legends defend the A-list Jackson
] An easier way to overcome alleged sexual abuses like Cosby is to have everyone talk about the Punishment and how to deal with their heritage. Jackson has a bigger gap, and some of the greatest legends of music are in his defense.
If Diana Ross and Barbra Streisand stand for Jackson, you know it will be difficult to come to terms with what MJ might have done.
As painful as it is to believe that he has sexually molested children, it is better if we accept this as fact, since the children in the recent HBO documentary Leaving Neverland their reasons for later exchanges explain their stories. Children tell the truth more than adults, and it's always better to know that.
Before this disagreement can be initiated, it is best to consider Jackson's mental condition in adulthood.
How mentally ill Michael was Jackson?
If you caught an ABC special about Jackson last year (Michael Jackson), you might remember how controversial this show was. There were forgotten interviews with MJ from his late teens, which provided a better indication of his mental condition.
There was clearer evidence that he had a rough childhood and found consolation in younger people because he was an unfamiliar adult. Could he have developed a mental illness that made him want to be more intimate with children?
Sexual abuse should never be forgiven on the basis of semantics. Jackson's illness may be different from other pedophilia. Well, it may be too complex to understand 10 years after his death.
Since we'll probably never know exactly what his mental state is, only the words of the victims are left.
Can people approach Jackson? Reconciliation, did he have two personalities?
Many commentators on Diana Ross & Tweet noted that she may have to accept the reality that Jackson was an incredible force for her and others who still sexually abuse these children.
We begin to realize that humans in our modern age are much more complex than we have ever admitted. Some of the most popular and famous people may initially have attractive personalities, but behind the scenes they are doing deceitful things. Now, thanks to increasing openness and video technology, they are increasingly being caught.
In Jackson's case he probably needed a psychiatric treatment. It is depressing to realize that he has never received such a thing. Since he was a superstar with constant "yes" and "no" traders, it was impossible to get treatment anyway.
What will Jackson's legacy ultimately be?
There should be no hurry to resolve the Jackson controversy. Such things take time to agree before people can make a final decision about their heritage.
Stars like Ross and Streisand may need to work things a little longer before coming to terms with a final opinion. However, you can always support MJ because they have only seen one side of it.
The best solution is to allow people to accept what they have experienced while at the same time acknowledging what the children went through after Streisand clarified it. Since many other symbols that are still with us have essentially similar contradictory personalities, we may need to look at many famous people differently in terms of their lives or lives.
