WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?

  • on: January 12, 2010, 01:13:29 AM
I'VE BEEN WONDERING SINCE THE BEGINNING WHY THE BROTHERS JACKSON HAVE NOT MADE AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT ABOUT THIS SITE AND THE POSSIBILITY OF A HOAX.SURELY THEY KNOW THIS SITE EXISTS. I FEEL THAT THERE COULD BE A COUPLE OF REASONS FOR THIS. THE FIRST BEING THAT MAYBE MJ HAS INSTRUCTED THEM NOT TO AS HE KNOWS THIS WILL TOTALLY CAUSE ALOT OF BELIEVERES TO LOSE FAITH.THE SECOND BEING THAT THEY ARE USING OUR GRIEF TO THEIR ADVANTAGE. I MEAN, MAYBE THEY FIGURE THEY WON'T ADDRESS  THE WHOLE HOAX SITE ISSUE AND WE WILL FOLLOW THEM FAITHFULLY LOOKING FOR ANSWERS ABOUT MJ.WE'LL WATCH THEIR SHOW GIVING THEM RATINGS,WE'LL BUY THEIR RECORDS LOOKING FOR CLUES,ETC. AND THEY MAKE A PRETTY PENNY IN THE PROCESS OF IT ALL.
I REALLY HOPE THIS ISN'T THE CASE,BUT IT HAS CROSS MY MIND A TIME OR TWO.

This site is but one of many. And honestly, whether MJ is dead or alive, there is no need for the family to make an "official" statement about the hoax. I mean, think about it. If he is alive, and the family says, "hey, fans, wake up, Michael Jackson is dead," are you going to believe them? And if he's actually dead, then to them, there is no need to dignify or, in effect, validate hoax theories with any sort of official reply.

Also, not everyone follows the Jacksons because of a belief in an MJ death hoax. Believe it or not, they actually DO have their own fans, people who have loved them for years. Yes, some hoaxers follow them. Yes, some MJ fans follow them solely because of their connection to MJ. But they do have their own fans too.

I also see nothing wrong with them taking advantage of a newfound intense focus in the spotlight as results of MJ's "death" (real or not). They are a part of MJ's legacy, and they are a part of America's music legacy, and they are a part of pop culture. If MJ's "death" helps rekindle the interest in their lives and talents, they WHY NOT take advantage of it? It's not like it was ONLY MJ's "death" that made them pick up a microphone again, or make music again, or potentially plan to tour again. They've been doing all of that stuff for years. Even the TV special started early last year, long before June. It simply became more episodes after MJ's "death," as a result of more interest.

I hope they do make a "pretty penny."  Should they be performing, appearing on TV, recording, and selling records for free? They have bills to pay too! Not sure if you realize it, but none of them makes the kind of money that MJ has. So if the renewed interest in their music helps them make a few extra bucks, then I see no reason why they shouldn't take advantage of the opportunity. I will buy a new album if they put one out. And not because I'm looking for "clues," or because of MJ. I will buy it because they are the Jacksons, and I like their music.  :D

LOL! FIRST OF ALL, I DID NOT SAY ALL OF THE FANS WERE WATCHING THE SHOW FOR CLUES,ALTHOUGH I DO FEEL THAT THE MAJORITY OF VIEWERS ARE WATCHING BECAUSE OF MICHAEL,LET'SJUST KEEP IT REAL,SHALL WE? SECONDLY,I NEVER SAID THE BROTHERS JACKSON WEREN'T TALENTED AND DIDN'T DESERVE TO MAKE ANY MONEY,NOW DID I? THIRDLY,I LIKE THE BROTHERS JACKSONS,TOO. I HAVE BEEN WATCHING/FOLLOWING THEM FOR YEARS. LASTLY,NO,I WOULD,NOT BELIEVE IF THEY TOLD ME MJ WAS DEAD BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE MIGHT AND IT MIGHT GIVE THEM SOME CLOSURE TO THEIR GREIF,EVEN IF IT IS A LIE. NOW,I WON'T GET INTO ALL YOU'VE SAID SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU ARE ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION AND I RESPECT THAT,BUT MOST OF US HERE KNOW THAT MJ IS BRINGING IN THE RATINGS FOR THAT SHOW AND THAT ANY SUCCESS THEY ENJOY IS DUE TO MICHAEL'S NAME. LIKE IT OR NOT THAT IS THE REALITY. I WOULD GO SEE THEM IN CONCERT,TOO. I LIKE THEM AND THEIR MUSIC AND WISH THEM NOTHING BUT THE BEST.OH,AND IF YOU NOTICE I ASKED "WHAT IF",I NEVER SAID ANY OF THIS WAS A IRREFUTABLE FACT,UMKAY?

Thanks for your thoughtful reply and it's duly noted, appreciated and respected, so I'll leave it at that. But I would like to ask that you stop using all caps. It is the equivalent of SHOUTING on the web. It is also a lot more difficult to read. Thanks a bunch.  :D

I never thought about the caps thing but you are correct,it does kinda make it appear that I'm shouting or being rude/sarcastic so I do sincerely apologize.Also,I wanna emphasize that I was not putting the Brothers Jackson down. I can sense that you're a fan of theirs and my statements weren't meant to upset you. Unfortunatly you can't always help what thoughts enter the mind and the things i mentioned came to mind,therefore I inquired about them. I am not kissing up to you, just making a sincere apology for being rude although it wasn't intentional. I hope we can be "friends" and get to the bottom of this mystery together. We all love Michael and I don't wanna be on bad terms with anyone here.
Thanks   :D

I'm their huge fan for 7 years, and I've been MJ fan for 20 years. So I became their fan while Michael .. don't know how to express it :cry: And I don't follow them.
Their music was really great and autentic. You cant' compare it with any other music. They are unique in their style. The problem is that Michael Jackson became the strongest brand in the world, so not many people understand how increadiable the roots are. They know about the band, but never heard their song or know only the most famous, which are not the best ones.
To be honest with you last couple years I used to listen only to JAckson Five and The Jacksons. Among Michaels records I've only listented "Off the Wall", which is my favorite album of all time ever. No other MJ albums recently, though i have them all and I love them sice childhood.

So to people who don't respect The Jacksons go listen to their music and find it's special flavour of youth, magic and joy. It's like fresh air.
