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.—
Michael Jackson to bodyguard Bill Whitfield (via alchrista)
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 :/
Michael Jackson’s iconic choreographies
“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.
“Oh God no. We had many talks about that (his looks). He had that inner light and he always considered himself to be extremely ugly. He said he’s not a handsome man. ‘That’s why I don’t do interviews and I don’t go on talk shows.’ He said ‘First of all, I don’t lead an interesting life, I work all of the time’ (and that’s what he did, he worked all of the time).
He never did really understand that he had that inner light.
Sitting and talking to Michael I would look into his eyes and I could see for 1,000 miles. He had these most incredible eyes. They come off good on film, but nothing like in person. When you’re actually sitting across there looking at him. Those eyes were unbelievable. There were times it would just stop me in my tracks and there were times I’d be around him where I’d kind of forget who he was and then it would dawn on me….’I’m sitting here next to Michael Jackson.’ I never really got over that. There were times he would do these quick little step things and they were like lightening. It was just so quick, so precise and just amazing.” - David Nordahl
