You Are Not Alone

  • on: September 14, 2011, 08:51:18 PM
Ok so I'm literally only on the Prologue  lolol/ but I had to post this quote from Jermaine's book:

"I find myself constantly reflecting, going back to a time when we believed Hollywood to be only a magical place; when we believed in the Yellow Brick Road" - It's page 5 of the Prologue (Kindle version)

lolol/ well it was a birthday gift

but I'm reading through it and the first part is very emotional...it's talking about the trial and this one moment where Michael completely breaks down after he had fallen, hurt his back and is in the hospital. It's really hard to read and imagine what he went through. Michael removed his jacket, showing his bare chest, and goes "Look at me!...Look at me! I'm the most misunderstood person in the world." (pg. 12) and then Jermaine goes into very specific detail what his skin looks like from the vitiligo because Michael had hid the extent of it from them until then.

I don't have the book but the parts I see here are sad.  I feel very bad that Michael had to go through all this pain and hard times.  Why were people worried about skin color etc. when he was doing such amazing things ?  I always saw him for all the great things he did, not all the other crazy stuff in the media etc.  moonwalk_/

Ok so a few more interesting things from reading:

He says that after Joseph went to his little sister's funeral when he was 11, he vowed never to attend another funeral and he kept that promise. "until 2009."

And he addresses the middle name issue:

"From somewhere, and especially after Michael's death, a rumor began that his middle name was Joseph. Maybe this myth prefers the echo with our father's name because the crossover reads better about a father and a son who struggled to see eye to eye. 'Joe' was his middle name, as recorded on his birth certificate."

He also talks about the #7:

"Michael was the seventh child with seven letters in his first name and "7" was his favorite number. So, numerically, his name is "777." That's the jackpot there. The Lucky 7s..."

"But "7" was central to his identity."

and he talks about how it was sewn into his clothes and significant in his artwork.

Ok I'm going to keep reading  lolol/

Thank you very much MichaelsAngel for this post,it is very important to me .So if  Michael's middle name is JOE as confirmed on "his birth certificate",this means one thing  afraid/:ALL death documents who say JOSEPH, which is NOT his LEGAL name,makes ALL those documents invalid.After Katherine and Latoya ,Jermaine is next to admit his legal name is Joe.
Wait of minute,if this is true,then what about the WILL,what about 1993 CASE/DANGEROUS DEPOSITIONS,and what about THIS IS TOUR  afraid/  OMG!? OMG all of this have THE NAME JOSEPH on them,all the papers  :shock: .Could it be that all was just an ILLUSION and was all about THE NAME????? In the BMI repertoire it clearly say Songwriter/Composer: JACKSON MICHAEL JOE.

In deed!  this rabbit hole is very very deep, I wonder if there is an online version of the book, in the UK there is only 1000 copies to be sold apparently?

I am very interested in that book. Jermaine loves Michael and he surely has a lot to say about his brother that we are not awared of.

We are back in point 0, Joe vs Joseph, so once again  :oops: isn´t Joe the short version of the name Joseph? If yes, then is the same name, not different.

I wonder if Jermaine is gonna write something about his "Word to da Badd" song. He definitely knew about his skin disorder, yet in his song he dissed MJ about his skin color!  crash/

Are we sure that all the documents  circulating in the net are real? I think that the DC of Michael and the BC of the kids are fake because of the middle name

Another family member confirmed that his middle name is JOE. I can not believe non-believers still do not wake up. Jermaine is giving out good clues in the book. We just need to read btw the lines. Thank you for posting it MichaelsAngel. I would be appreciated if you keep on sharing the interesting parts you read.  bearhug

But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, "I'm an alien from Mars and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight," people would say, "Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. He's cracked up. You can't believe a single word that comes out of his mouth."

I know Mrs. Katherine says that Michael gets embarrassed easily. I guess he was just so ashamed of his skin disease....
Makes me want to cry, just thinking about how hard it must have been for him to talk to anyone about it.
Vitiligo wasn't understood then by a lot of people at the time he got it.

You're welcome everybody! The Book is split into 3 parts: The Beginning- The Early Years; The Middle- The Hayvenhurst Years; and the End- The Neverland Years. I'm only on the middle portion but I will update everyone as I go along.

Here are a few cute/interesting stories but aren't really major clues except for maybe a few:

-Michael is the master of imitation. He was always studying human emotions and the way humans behaved (disguises  8))

-Michael was always secretly listening in on meetings and was curious to hear what the executives were saying (when he was little and couldn't be apart of it) and he always liked to listen in if he heard someone mention his name. He also wanted to know what the fans talked about  lolol/

-Jermaine says that the media sensationalized the Joseph beatings and that it really wasn't as bad as they made it out to be. He said that to Michael it seemed worse because he was young and very sensitive. He also said that he was the defiant one, even from the beginning when he threw his bottle at Joseph's head at 18 months  :lol: :lol: :lol:

-When Michael was too little to be in the band, he made a set of bongos out of oatmeal cans and decided he was going to play from the sidelines. The three boys (Jackie, Tito, Jermaine) were set to sing in front of their mom and grandma and right when they were about to sing...Michael shot up and started singing haha and that's when they knew he had something special

-Marlon was only added to the group because Katherine insisted and at one point there was talk of kicking him out by Joseph because he couldn't get the dance steps

-Michael always thought of his fans as a second family and as "peripheral friends"

There are a lot of cute stories that really let you see the magic of Michael, even from the very beginning. It really is a very good book

 lolol/ lolol/ I had to share this story. Ok so Jermaine is in bed with a girl in the room that he shares with Michael:

"'I love how you stroke my thighs,' she continued, '...you're real gentle...' I'm not stroking your thighs. '...it feels good," she whispered. I peeked open my eyes and maneuvered my head to take a sly look down the bed, and that's when I saw it--Michael's arm, reaching up and over from underneath the bed, his hand circling her thigh...'She got some real creamy thighs!' he [Michael] said"

 :lol: :lol: :lol: he's such a little stud

Reading it now, just finished the prologue. First few pages already show how close they are as a family, in spite of what the public might think and the media might imply. I am sure I am going to love this book, Jermaine writes well.
