I didn't say we shouldn't care about him as a person, I just don't personally care what he does.I think that someone who has gotten away with such (let's just say) questionable behaviour in the name of stardom and the almighty dollar should not be given the time of day. I know that you are being a good christian and saying the right thing but maybe if it was your child he was cosied up in bed with, you may be singing a different tune right now.

Well, now, shouldn't the Nation of Islam be proud!

He's forced his children to wear scarves over their faces all their lives, so I guess this transition won't be as shocking to them.

The man is a freak. Such talent and musical genius he had ("Thriller" remains one of my favorite albums). He was even a good-looking man when he was still black. In the mid-80's he started to short-circuit. And I'm not so certain that he shouldn't be in prison.
