Michael Jackson was a victim of his own fame and notoriety.
Do I think he was gay? No.
Do I think he had some serious mental issues? Definitely.
He wasn't always like that.
Someday, someone will write the definitive book on his life.
It may even be a Jackson family member.
Until then, let the man rest in peace, whatever he was, he isn't anymore....
The Three Musketeers... Bashful, Chrisglass, and Ronboy!

I think the Guy had a crappy family life. Then when the J5 took off, he never had the opportunity to really be a kid. No, I don't think he was gay. May he rest in peace.
Michael's attraction to innocent youth was an attempt to fill a void in his life caused by a lost childhood. I think he was mostly asexual, someone with romantic notions, but not capable of forming healthy, or long lasting sexual relationships. I do not think he was gay.
I don't think I ever thought he was gay. He lived a really screwed up life that went off the rails one day and he was never able to get back on track, his musical genius was lost in all the tabloid allegations and controversies.

I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.
Yes. But I'm not sure to what degree he acted on it. We know that something was going on behind closed doors that at least one boy was able to identify markings that he would only have seen had Jackson been naked. I've been told that it is generally believed by people who know all the parties involved that the big payout (20M?) to one kid was essentially extortion money.
I've also been told by someone who was in a position to know that Jackson had a congenital condition that made him incapable of fathering children. I didn't ask whether that was because he couldn't get it up or because he was sterile. There was a problem of one sort or another. I was told this many years ago, at the time of what's-his-name the celebrity dermatologist (and bear) 's nurse's pregnancy.

"He never had a chance to be a kid."
If his response to never getting to be a kid was to seek therapy instead of building a ranch for kids and publicly celebrating getting into bed with them, wishing that he rest in peace would be a lot easier for me. Until then... eff all that noise. Not going to be an apologist on this one.
Michael Jackson himself said he wasn't gay. I believed him because he said, "there's information (sic) about that in the Bible.

Don't cast aspersions on my asperagus.
Jockboy was on mark.
MJ's mother (Katherine Jackson) had once called him a "damn fag" because she had long suspected that her own son wasn't straight.

How many of you think Alexander the Great was gay?
Don't do scat, kids. It means you're a Republican.
I'm happy Seghers and yourself are here to clear it up, but I didn't like his post at all.
MJ was a black adult male who acted like a white underage female. He even went to great lengths medically to become one. To no avail.
