Book MJ man behind the mask

  • on: March 05, 2010, 04:48:40 AM
Has anyone read this book : Michael Jackson, the man behind the mask: an insider's story of the king of pop. By Bob Jones, Stacy Brown.
Please read pages 89 and 90 if you haven't already.
It talks about him staging illness to get out of commitments and promises he made.
I thought it was interesting to read and sure makes a hoax more possible.

I have read it. It is quite an eye opening book to say the least. What are your thoughts about it?

As you can read he wasn't afraid of staging such things.
I believe he very much wanted to do 10 shows but then being pushed into 50...no that was probably not his intention.
I think he really didn't want to do those 50 concerts anymore and just had enough with everything and everyone telling him what he can or can't do! Maybe this was his only way out?

Oh sorry I'm able to read page 57 to 92. Maybe it's different for everyone.
I can't copy anything from the pages can only link the site.

I bought this book on line very early on in the hoax. I ripped it into pieces and put it in the rubbish cause I didn't want anyone else to find it and read. Thought it was written from a mean and defamationary spirit and a case of sour grapes on Mr Jone's part after being sacked. This is the book that had the hair licking incident that was later admitted by Mr Jones in court to be something he made up.In this bookworms opinion  there are much better books on MJ than this one to read.

It didn't give the specific details of why he was sacked and  I skimmed over some parts because they were offensive but Bob Jones was employed as MJ's publicist for many many years and when his employment was terminated, it was done by someone else under MJ's instructions and he did not recieve the benefits he felt were owed to him such as long service leave  and the like.  His employment started way back to the 1970's and what became so obvious to me in this book was Mr Jones was very very bitter about the way he was dismissed.

The book is an extremely negative portrayal of Michael Jackson and graphically describes his supposed relationship with Jordan Chandler and other boys.

I have read somewhere else other than this book that MJ had special ways to get out of doing things that he was less than interested in doing.

The book is trash, but this part was very interesting indeed. I don't believe 100% of the book's content is false, that's not all too likely, so there might actually be some truth to it. This has been said about Michael a lot, but Jones really goes into detail when it comes to this particular kind of hoaxes...

For anyone who can't read it online (the italics belong to Jones, the rest to Stacy Brown):

"He had been contracted to do an HBO special entitled "One Night Only." The network had promised a worldwide audience of 250 million people. But once again the King of Pop was up to his old tricks.

Something happened and he decided he didn't want to do the shows despite his agreement with HBO. You had to figure that he was up to something and he didn't disappoint.
I had attended the rehearsal for the show at the Beacon Theater earlier that day and all seemed to be going very well. However, later, after I left, I got a call from Jim Morey saying that I better get back there because they were taking Michael Jackson to the hospital in an ambulance. Morey said I needed to rush back in order to be available to the media.


Another sensational story lead-in: Pop star Michael Jackson was hospitalized today after collapsing during a rehearsal for an HBO concert special in New York.
The King had gotten his doctors to admit him after collapsing on stage. [...]

Michael had a penchant for staging illness and other problems to get out of commitments and promises he had made. [...] The King was concocting a hoax to get out of commitments.

Upon my return to California, I had to join the King and his doctor to discuss how we would fake an illness and have him admitted to St. John't Hospital in Santa Monica, California. At the appointed hour on the morning of June 3, 1990, his doctor would ring my phone and I would rush to the hospital. In the meantime, I had to arrange for someone to tip off the Associated Press to stimulate the media. I arranged for a lady friend of mine to call the Associated Press, offering to sell them information that she had seen Michael Jackson being rushed into the emergency room of St. John's Hospital. It worked like a charm.
We then had to issue daily reports on his condition, which fooled the media. However, many did question why his doctor, a plastic surgeon, was Michael's attending doctor during his stay. [...]


I think this information is so very important, I don't and can't believe that Jones made it all up. He certainly is a nasty and vindictive liar which was basically proven in court, still, alleging that absolutely everything he claims in his book is a lie would be silly.

We have Michael fooling the media, being rushed into the hospital, in order to get out of commitments. And according to Jones, it even worked perfectly, except for people wondering why his plastic surgeon attended Michael. Yet, Michael stayed in the hospital and nobody seemed to complain or have anything to say about that, the media, the outside world got fooled and Michael managed to get out of those deals, as he wanted.

Déjà vu, huh?
