If Michael didn’t sell Neverland while he was still alive, that means he was never planning on doing that. I’m speechless.
this honestly makes me so mad that it’s even going to be sold. if he never sold it/had intentions to…
Exactly. He didn’t even try to get rid of it the right way. He pretty much gave it away and left.
It wasn’t a safe haven and that was proven when they raided it, ransacked the place, violated him and caused it to be a constant memory of what happened there.
It had more value to the fans than it did to him.
Maybe that’s why people are choosing to ignore that he hated the place. He didn’t even to back to get his stuff until a while later. Even then he just told people what to get and bring back.
Of course Prince and Paris want it back and to save it. They grew up there. They have great memories there with him. That’s natural.
The estate doesn’t need to buy it. Realistically, is an extra unneeded expense. Realistically they’d have to charge people to go or put out more and more shit to sell to us to cover the constant costs and maintenance for whatever people are going it’s turned into.
It’s not being demolished. Just sold. It won’t disappear because there’s a new owner. Michael barely owned it himself.
"In the end, the most important thing is to be true to yourself and those you love and work hard. I mean, work like there’s no tomorrow. Train. Strive. I mean, really train and cultivate your talent to the highest degree. Be the best at what you do. Get to know more about your field than anybody alive. Use the tools of your trade, if it’s books or a floor to dance on or a body of water to swim in. Whatever it is, it’s yours. That’s what I’ve always tried to remember." Michael Jackson
I just want my kids to have a better life than me. I never want them to go through what I had to go through. How would you guys feel if your kids asked you for something and you had to send someone out to get it? I appreciate what you guys do for my kids, but I’m their father. I should be the one doing those things, but I can’t just get in the car and go. There are so many things I can’t do for them because those people out there won’t let me. You have no idea how that feels. You really don’t. I just wanna live my life with my kids.—

some of them go because they get annoyed by people; some of them close their blogs because they “finally” have social lives; some of them (like me) get bored of tumblr and because of some annoying people here too…I won’t go, for now. I’m sorry :/ tho, because I know what you mean. The best blogs like whoslovinyou, threatened, mymjjtribute and other GREAT blogs are gone, and the MJ fandom on tumblr is not like it used to be before, we had so much fun with our convos and you know those people making great and original stuff too, and I used to be here for hours I tell you, and now you see the same stuff, the same gifsets and photosets being done over and over again, not that much the MJ fandom interacts anymore, even tho some people here had discussions and the fandom seemed a little bit divided, we had our fun times, it suddenly got boring :/

“So when people say “he abuse”, that’s not true… That’s not true at all.”
You know something? If it’s one thing to hear people say such torturous things about Michael, I think it hurts the most that they’d say he would do something harmful towards a child. I’m not gonna pull out the “if you really knew Michael card” because truly at the end of the day, we only know what he’s told us. We were never there. We didn’t get to spend every waking day with him. And as a fan, when Michael spoke a about something important to him, I believe he said it with sincerity. From these gifs, you can see in his eyes and his expressions that when he’d talk of his past and even the present he was living in during this time frame, it had affected him in certain ways we may not even understand. But the thing about him is, he kept strong and that’s what I admire in him. I try to say to myself every day that if Michael could keep on a smile through such the hard times he had to endure, then why shouldn’t I.
